Re: “Nashville Recap: 'Nobody Knows but Me'

I can't make coherent thoughts at the moment so I'll just make a list:

1. Cadence? No. That baby gestated for two years and that's the best name they could come up with?

2. I'm glad Will is finally gonna get that sweet, sweet D. He's been moping about goin' to bone city since Nashfest Winterjam or whatever it was.

3. JADE ST. JOHN sounds like someone Erica Kane would have had a slightly sexy cat fight with in a fountain sometime in 1985 right after saying (with a straight face) "YOU'RE TRYING TO DESTROY ME!" I have a love/hate relationship with this character's name.

4. Gunnar's hat.

5. Motherin' just does not come naturally to the Barnes women

6. The daylight filtering through everyone's windows is always extra bright and white, as if a nuclear bomb is detonating in the distance.

7. Methinks the end is drawing near for any political-related storyline on this show. Let that be a lesson for whore-mongerin' mayors everywhere

8. I do love a good Rayna/Jeff scene

9. I have never heard anyone in my life say "cup of whiskey" and I was holding a cup of whiskey at that very moment.

10. Never go away, ABC's 'Nashville'!!!

Re: “#MayoralChatter: What All the Campaign Cash Means

Fox seems to have embraced his right winger staffers' penchant for strange identity politics. Between his "The Nashville Way" tagline and the way he pines away for the good ole days of Nashville in most of the forums, Fox sounds like he could be Rick Perry spouting out some "Texas Forever" nonsense. It all seems highly coded, but fortunately for Nashville, he has no chance of winning.

Re: “Lawmakers Seek to Punish School Boards for Suing State

"But still, it seems a little unfair if you have a just cause against the state and you can’t have the ability to sue them,” "

Also probably unconstitutional.

The state assembly should remember that it often joins in litigation against the federal government. This is the same exact damned thing.

Re: “We sent a dyed-in-the-wool progressive to the NRA convention. Here's what he saw.

@ Christopher Coleman:

Christopher says "Maybe it is time for all those gun owners in America not part of the NRA who wish to promote the responsible use and enjoyment of guns as a sport--not as a neo-fascist political movement--to form their own association?"
_______________________________________________________________

I would suggest that they have. An interpretation of one of the points of my post would be that by virtue of the size of the voting bloc, they are. Because of their propensity for being vocal and in communication with their legislators, they are the primary reason for, depending on one's point of view, the laws we either have or don't.

Remember this 'voting bloc of which I speak is 40 times larger than the 'votes' with which the NRA supposedly 'threatens' legislators. If you think about it, who would a legislator, determined to keep their seat, be more concerned about?

This example is a good one to show the dangers of the 'bogeyman approach' to a perceived problem. The foaming about the NRA has gotten so out of hand that the real power operates 'under the RADAR' with impunity. And when things aren't 'solved', enter the confusion and dissonance where those that have fallen for this approach shake their fists at the sky and talk about 'fascists'.

Re: “Lawmakers Seek to Punish School Boards for Suing State

A quote from our soon to be state book seems appropriate on this issue. After all it is that book that the super duper majority says formed their characters. "Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord." Romans 12:19.

Re: “I've Changed My Mind, Let's Make the Bible the State Book

Strange how the Bible would have been banned from school libraries a couple of years ago had the "Don't Say Gay" bill passed and now people want to make it the state book. I guess Stacy Campfield's exit from the state senate has had a positive effect?

Re: “Lawmakers Seek to Punish School Boards for Suing State

I wonder if the members of our super duper majority in the legislature who voted for this have stopped to think that this legislation will ultimately punish the school children in these districts which have filed suit only after years of inadequate state funding. This reminds me of the story of the two women who present a custody dispute to King Solomon, however the super duper majority isn't all that gifted with wisdom.

Re: “Lawmakers Seek to Punish School Boards for Suing State

What is the definition of "fully fund BEP?" Not being obtuse, just curious. Is it a fully understood legal term or a statement made by people who think they are not getting enough. Is "fully funding" increasing the funding to just certain recipients leading to more lawsuits from those not getting an increase (rural districts?)

Re: “We sent a dyed-in-the-wool progressive to the NRA convention. Here's what he saw.

Good article as far as it went, but it raises other questions. If membership fees are so low and include not only admission to the Convention, assorted goodies and a monthly membership magazine, how is the NRA able to pour such vast sums of money into buying politicians and elections? Surely not through rank and file member fees! As Woodward and Bernstein did in Watergate, follow the money.

In fact, I remember when the NRA was a legitimate sportsmen's association, dedicated to promoting RESPONSIBLE gun ownership and education; not promoting fear, ignorance and lunatic fringe legislation. Maybe it is time for all those gun owners in America not part of the NRA who wish to promote the responsible use and enjoyment of guns as a sport--not as a neo-fascist political movement--to form their own association?

Buffalo Bob and Mr. Fake Karl Rove, did some google work on Fox's consultant firm. Looks like they have won several national awards for field/canvassing programs. Interesting stuff. Boy this is gonna heat up quick

I think Fox's team is a bit more than "paid canvassers", those kids are like ninjas, they are everywhere. Seems to me like Bone is the one making consultants rich.

Re: “Lawmakers Seek to Punish School Boards for Suing State

Easy solution. Fully fund BEP. That's all that the lawsuit is asking. However, you'd rather putz around wasting entire days debating crap that does nothing to help the people of Tennessee. That's taxpayer money that went down the sewer for sure.

Re: “Nashville a Top 10 Pizza Destination? I Had No Idea ...

In general, all pizza in Nashville is "over dressed" as compared to actually eating a pizza in Italy. But, I too like our style and given that I would choose City House.

Re: “I've Changed My Mind, Let's Make the Bible the State Book

I've been thinking on the other question, if not the bible what should it be, and I think I've come to the conclusion that the best thing would be to commission one.

The details would have to be worked out, but I'm pretty sure it should involve Elvis, Davy Crockett, Jack Daniels, and space pirates.
