Doyle - I think you missed the point of my question. But, thanks for restating 1/2 my post.

Re: “Veteran Suicides in Tennessee Increased in 2013

I hope this is not a consequence of the problems with the VA system. Regardless, this information needs to be widely published to be sure veterans know where to go to get the help they need and deserve.

Re: “The Daily Links: Vaccines, Deadmau5, and Hunter S. Thompson

yoyojohn: I realize you're not that perceptive, but my comments on grammar were directed at Diatribean!! who was acting honestly kinda like you and all your persona's by viciously insulting and attacking me. He/she/it went all grammar Nazi on me, and I apologized for my grammatical mistakes before she fire bombed my hut! As for everything else, I basically stand bu my opinion that you are greatly flawed, in most every way, and for all the usual reasons. Other than that, I am sure you are good to your mother and a peachy keen guy.

Jeeez, the paranoia of these wing nutz!

"No, I certainly did not accuse of Clinton raping anyone. Did you miss the question mark?"

Lame?

You will note that I said nothing about your answer.

Re: “12South's poultry-heavy soda shop The Flipside has potential, but it needs more than cute decor

This place pissed me off to no end. I work down the street and walked down for lunch. I asked the bartender what their favorite thing was. I ended up with a soggy piece of flattened out chicken on white bread with ketchup on it. They even forgot the pickles which wouldn't have saved the dish either. The fries were boring and the milkshake was exactly as described. The worst part of it? It was basically a $25 lunch. It's downright shameful. This place seems nothing more than a rich person/investor who knows nothing about the restaurant business who sunk tons of money designing a beautiful and hip building but decided that their 3am drunk food would be perfect and should be the only thing on the menu. Until they hire a real chef with a real menu I'm going to avoid this place like the plague.

Re: “The Daily Links: Vaccines, Deadmau5, and Hunter S. Thompson

For Prag,

No, I certainly did not accuse of Clinton raping anyone. Did you miss the question mark?

Certainly others did. Paula got $700K but she wanted her teeth fixed and who can blame her.

The feminists/media got some others back then, but they were conservatives; names escape me. Remember an older authority figure cannot get a BJ from a young intern. That is laid in stone... well, unless you are WJC.

For JC/Pinnochio,

See, I told all not to worry over grammar style/spelling. No harm, no foul. Have you not called me to task over something; was it the recent Chanee thing or my met/meet mistake?

It is wrong for the POTUS to go on national TV and lie. And, he went there to lie. In its way that is worse.

Prag,

Used to be an old college ditty....

Might you consider that?

you don't "automatically" lose your job in the NFL for hitting a woman. I imagine there are a few playing every Sunday who have. this is about public perception and public relations.

Re: “The Daily Links: Vaccines, Deadmau5, and Hunter S. Thompson

Diatribean!!: Juanita Broderick actually changed her story several times and was judged to be unreliable by the authorities and press. Collaborators on the story was a fellow nursing home employee who held a grudge against Clinton for commuting the sentence of the man convicted of killing her father, and her sister. The press eventually doubted the story so much they refused to run anything else on it. Eve the GOP placed such little value in her story that they neglected to call her as a witness against Clinton in their ill fated attempt at impeachment. No smoke, no fire is the only viable conclusion.
Was Clinton a womanizer, well........yeah! That is little surprise given the propensity of politicians in their egotistical world. THAT fact does not rule him out as a pretty good President. His involvement with Lewinsky was consensual if not ill advised and troublesome. No coercion, no illegalities in the act. He was NOT convicted of impeachment, and today is far and above the most popular ex President alive.

BTW: Please pardon my sentence structure and punctuation errors. I acknowledge your grammar superiority, and am sorry if I pissed in your cheerios with this post. Save the whales!

Re: “Walter Roche Is Blogging

Jim,

Pretty much Yes.

The difference is that I don't go around preaching something else. You do understand that little distinction, no?

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: Fairest of the Pies Edition

I keep forgetting to mention this. A few weeks ago my cousin and I tried out Big Shake's Hot Chicken & Fish in Franklin. We split a chicken leg plate and a big basket of wings. They were both excellent. Especially the wings. They were fried without breading and then were seasoned with a spicy dry rub. If you're in the area I would definitely check it out. That is all.

We have found that it is counterproductive to dig around in manure piles, expecting to find a pony.

Re: “For a teen’s impulsive, unthinkable act, Cyntoia Brown got an adult’s life sentence. Was justice served?

Before reading this story I seen a report on TV about a man who rapped and murdered two young women who at first got an eight year sentence of manslaughter. Then on the second was sentence to two life sentences. That man knew what he was doing and did it twice. I feel that this young woman who society has failed should indeed be punished but given a second chance. People have gotten so use to the justice system being for people who have no regrets for their crimes. they've forgotten its also for people to learn for their mistakes and learn how to be put back into society. this young lady has done her time and have been rehabilitated she deserves her second chance, and we as a people should make it where more people who have made mistakes gets another chance.
