Rants

Gas prices are down for a fifth week in a row. Must be Obama's fault.

Where are men like Adlai Stevenson, Estes Kefauver and Hubert Humphrey? In other words, what the hell has happened to the Democratic Party?

intelligence is shining on the Republican side of the page now. I don't agree with the platform, but I now respect the voice speaking.

Can we still call ourselves "The Scenic City" after greedy developers and TDOT level all the hills for more underused, tacky developments?

The train wreck that is the Tennessee legislature has thankfully adjourned. The damage, pain and comedy will temporarily stop until they go back into session.

The NRA, promoters, and some legislators seem to believe that gun owners are immune from anger, intoxication, poor judgment, and error. Give it a rest.

Not paying sales tax is like avoiding the draft during Vietnam. It was self-serving, popular and cool at the time instead of serving your country.

The case on Signal Mountain where the wrong guy was arrested? He should have called Sheriff Hammond. Real convicted felons do and it works.

My truck is neither female nor in heat. My bumper, your grill, your choice. A five second distance isn't going to make you late.

So using Pat Summitt's early onset dementia to promote your latest development scheme is OK? You gotta be kidding.

Regarding the recent article about tornado coverage: I watched the entire coverage and Channel 3 had better coverage.

The Democratic Party has become the old Republican Party. The Republican Party has gotten the racist conservatives out of the Southern Wing of the Democratic party, and gone to town!

How can anyone watch the entire coverage of an event? Either you switched back and forth in which case you did not see the entire coverage, or you DVR'd one and watched it in it's entirety later. I switched back and forth and can tell you they are saying the exact same thing, tracking the same storms on radar and warning people in the paths. Bottom line, the story on Paul Barys and Channel 3 was a puff piece for the "news partner" of the paper. The fact that reporters were "hearing people talk about how great Paul was" is ludicrous and basing a story on it is poor journalism to say the least.

Where are men like Barry Goldwater, Nelson Rockefeller and Howard Baker? What the hell has happened to the Republican Party?

They've been run out. Well, Goldwater would be today's Ideologue, he could drop principles like a hat.
