Rants

Don’t be mousy, Drew. Just say what you think!

Monday’s Planning Commission meeting was a study in “unclean” politics and a clear example of why Mayor Littlefield should have been recalled.

Maybe the developer in Hixson should sell his hilltop dirt to the developer in East Ridge to fill in the flood plain!

Environmentally friendly city?

Surprise, the new jobs numbers for September and October were overstated by 49,000!

Is there any way DesJarlais can be recalled? It would be a landslide.

Somebody remind Haslam that he’s governor of all Tennesseans, and he has left more than half a million of us uninsured twisting in the wind.

Why were the Tivoli and Memorial Auditorium not subject to an annual audit just like other businesses?

Mr. Kruesi, glad you got around the sewer moratorium, but 199 new homes on Signal would put about 400 more cars on our mountain roads.

Dear charities, Don’t call me, I’m tapped out. Ask Obama for help. Happy Holidays!

Life Care: New buildings with a five-star-hotel look and golf courses — for a nursing home. Your Medicare dollars at work. Really?

If Republicans are such fans of a free market why won’t they allow Medicare to bargain over drug prices?

"Life Care: New buildings with a five-star-hotel look and golf courses — for a nursing home. Your Medicare dollars at work. Really?"

Another article, Dec 16, 2012 details the abuse for greed inflicted on patients at Life Care nursing homes. If you had a relative or friend in ANY Life Care facility Ask for all the medical records from Life Care. Review them, then make an appointment with a medical malpractice attorney for investigation.

These were not isolated incidents but standard practices demanded from the highest levels of the corporate management.

Those found guilty deserve civil penalties. Those in command deserve criminal penalties and prison time.

What's the difference between a thug who robs a store and hurts the cashier for fifty dollars and the systematic robbery, abuse, and injuries of medical patients for billions of dollars from thugs in suits? None!

If anything, the systematic actions are typical of a criminal enterprise and should meet the standards of RICO. Where's the difference between the Cosa Nostra of Gotti, Capone, and Luciano and the nursing-home mafias?

Excellent article and investigation Todd South. Keep up the good work. Everyone else keep up the pressure on the government to bring justice to the thousands harmed by Life Care and those corporate people who played God for greed with the weakest and most vulnerable.Shame on Life Care.
