The Candidate

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

Mayfield is a bad choice for a public official. It's a clear that he is going to win.

The other candidates are only recognizable to people who follow politics. Carl Two Feathers, perennial candidate for Governor, has a better chance at winning on a write in than young Wamp has in taking his father's old seat. No one is going to even know who the Democrats are. We have had no indication that Representative Fleischmann ever even showed up for work; his name remains unknown even after being elected to office and serving a term.

As much as I hate it, Mayfield will win it. Our people will elect Mayfield because of the ice cream.

It has that combination of obesity, stupidity and poor public policy that will probably make him a lifelong Chattanooga politician. It'll be Mayfield because of the ice cream.

May 20, 2012 at 12:40 a.m.

Maybe he'll propose National Fudge Ripple Appreciation Day.

Or Week. Think of it, a WEEK of ICE CREAM!

Clay, very good! It did not take long for the people who like to stay with the "R" party to get their hopes dashed with Mayfield after he admitted he was not "political savoy" but then very soon started speaking the "talking points" of the Republican Party. How long will the "R" voters buy into the destroying party's political policies and ideologies toward the working people?

carlB said...

Jack_Dennis, you apparently like the "trickle down" theory instead of the "trickle up" theory? What would you have to complain about besides worrying about people jealous of and envying your hard earned money?
The stated objectives of the Republicans are to continue with their "class warfare" by repressing, depressing, taking away them having any bargaining and representation and weakening our Governments' ability to function, helping the people after they have been forced into poverty leaving them to "fend" for themselves. If the masses of the people do not have more manufacturing jobs here by the private sectors then everybody will "go down" together. What oo will money do in ta state of "anarchy" without a functioning Government?

Carl...you may have a point. But I can't really understand your post.

TOES02800 said...

"Anarchy" is what happens when government redistributes wealth to the point that there is no more wealth to redistribute. The government does not create wealth, it does not create a product to sell. All the government can do is take money from those who earn and give to those who don't. Sooner or later the government WILL run out of other people's money to give to the non-producers. Greece being a prime example of an entitlement lifestyle that cannot be sustained.

Why does a totalitarian government have to be the only type of "functioning" government?

May 20, 2012 at 10:03 p.m.

TOES02800, Uh,no,that's not anarchy. Go find a true civil libertarian if you want to learn what anarchy is. Or any number of other theories. Nothing you said even comes close to the definitions anybody uses. You're just throwing all the phrases you've been taught to hate together in a mix. Try to improve your understanding a bit. That said fiat money does exist on the idea of a common acceptance which is fostered by government support. If you want to try Bit coins, go ahead and see what you can do.

And if you think no action of the government creates wealth or leads to a product, you really haven't been paying attention. Go try a road. The government pays money to the people who paved it. This in turn opens up an artery of commerce for other people. Wealth increases. But apparently this doesn't happen. The road crews didn't even earn their pay. Does the same apply to patents and copyrights? Property laws?

But actually, did you know capitalists like the government's role in helping them with their wealth too? Especially the redistribution of it. Careful though, or they will co-opt the government for their benefit over yours. Even if they produce something which has an infinite supply. Yet they'll happily get the government to strong arm your money away.

It's funny, you think the people you believe to be producers don't avail themselves of the government, you reserve your ire for those you've been taught to resent.

May 20, 2012 at 10:56 p.m.
TOES02800 said...

The government didn't create the money to pay for that road, they took it from taxpayers. The government probably paid a union guy $20 an hour to stand there with a sign. The government overpays to unions and wastes tons of money. The government didn't pave that road, taxpayers did. The government just paid twice what it was worth. May we see a copy of your PH.D little miss know it all?

Let me tell you why I'm voting for Mayfield. He is a real person. I would rather have him than a politician. The media is beating him up because he isn't aggressive behind a microphone. That doesn't bother me a bit. I want a leader, not a politician. I want someone who will listen to what I have to say and not just say anything to get elected. And he has done that in his campaign. A lot of people comment about him because of what they read in the media. But I heard him speak and he has better positions than any of the other candidates. That is why he has my vote.

Jack_Dennis, you are correct I do have several "points" in my post about the conditions of this Republic and what the plans of the Republicans are to take us back to the "stone age". They are telling us everyday about the conditions the want the workers to accept along with their plans for legislating morality. I have to admit it is poor sentence structure and should have been written better. But I also can understand why you would not admit to understanding what I was talking about. To relate to what I wrote, you would have to not be in denial of the facts and have a comprehensive view of the conditions and the direction the Republicans are wanting to take this Republic.

Mayfield is not dancing to the medias tune therefore being chastised for not spending tons of money for a year prior to election day. He is talking to and listening to voters in small town hall meetings and gaining support. He is wisely saving his limited funds until closer to the election. Too many people wait for the media to form an opinion for them versus getting to know the candidate themselves.

Wow! A dummycrat with courage!

Newark Mayor Cory Booker slammed the Obama campaign's ad criticizing Mitt Romney's record as the head of Bain Capital, and called for an end to"nauseating" attacks from both sides. "I have to just say from a very personal level, I'm not about to sit here and indict private equity," Booker, a Democrat, said in an appearance on NBC's "Meet The Press" on Sunday. "To me, it's just we're getting to a ridiculous point in America. Especially that I know I live in a state where pension funds, unions and other people invest in companies like Bain Capital. If you look at the totality of Bain Capital's record, they've done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses."

"This kind of stuff is nauseating to me on both sides," Booker continued. "It's nauseating to the American public. Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity. Stop attacking Jeremiah Wright. This stuff has got to stop, because what it does is it undermines, to me, what this country should be focused on. It's a distraction from the real issues."

A teacher campaigning for Obama in the classroom tells her student,

"You got to realize, (Romney) is wanting to be what Obama is. There’s no comparison.”

"You will not disrespect the president of the United States in this classroom.”

"Because (Bush) was sh-tty.”

No bias or indoctrination going on in this classroom! It is encouraging to hear how well informed the student(s) are, possibly more than the teacher.

The ignorance in congress regarding financial matters is frightening. Of course they do have advice from lobbyist about what and where to invest to grow very wealthy. They talk about the need for jobs but criticize and harm those that create non-government jobs. The government cannot bankrupt but they can and are in a bipartisan way bankrupting the majority of those they govern.

TOES02800 said...

The anarchy I was referring to was a generic term for political disorder or lawlessness in society. Or maybe I should have just said "chaos". At any rate, bulbs seems to think that the government creates wealth just by virtue of being the government.

What product does the government produce, manufacture, or cultivate to sell to get the money for your roads? Does bulbs think the rich have enough money and will continue to supply enough money to spread to every man woman and child in the land? Will the rich just pack it in and leave town before the government bleeds them dry? If so, then what?

If everyone was equal monetarily, Do you realize we would all be in poverty?

Gotta throw this out there. If we had the best economy in the world under Bill Clinton, which all lefties and even some righties agree. Then why doesn't Obama just put government spending back to the 18% GDP that it was under Clinton? Would we not enjoy, once again, the surpluses that Clinton left the Bush administration?

Here we sit with Obama spending at around 25% GDP and the economy is in the tank! I think it's because Obama WANTS to bankrupt this nation so that he can have everybody in it dependent on the government.

Mayfield and Fleischmann are both better than Wamp...I don't know exactly what Fleischmann has done wrong to cause so many Republicans to want him out.

Also, Mayfield won't win, he is a stalking horse for Wamp. Look up the campaign contributions and Mayfield's past associations with the elder Wamp. Mayfield negates Fleischmann's potential strength in the northern counties. It is all about numbers.

In all due respect Clinton did not leave President Bush a surplus. The thought of the surplus was a lie fabricated by the liberal main stream media. President Bush actually inherited a 5 trillion dollar surplus from President Clinton. What I find amazing is these libtards do not think Hussein Obama should even have a budget. They say nothing about him not ever having a budget during his whole term. Amazing.

timbo said...

What in the heck are they going to debate???? They all basically agree with each other. For that matter they all agree with Chucky. This whole primary is a waste of time. We already have an average, conservative when it is convenient, representative in Chucky. Why do we need to even look at people in the same mold?

What a waste of time and money.

Here's the way it will go..

  1. Economy....All three will say Obama has ruined it.

  2. Abortion.....All three will say it's bad.

  3. War in Afganistan....They all support it and love our troops.

  4. Obamacare.....They all want it repealed.

  5. Deficit.. All think it is bad but won't do anything about it.

  6. In general....Obama bad, Romney good..etc. etc.

  7. Wamp will say how we need a know-nothing, 20 something because the 50 year-olds have messed things up. I heard this same argument on Nickelodeon the other day. I think it was from some 13 year-old girl.

  8. Chucky will say that he supports the establishment and has voted conservative and it makes him feel tall to be a US Representative.

  9. Ron Bhalla...He will say a lot but we will only be able to understand about 70%. You can go on his web site and "he will report and you decide."

  10. Mayfield ...he won't say anything because he won't be there.

Did I miss anything? Now you don't have to waste your time going.

p.s. The democrats are even worse, I can't even remember whose running but they would say...love Obama, hate Republicans, spend more money....

The Dems couldn't be any worse. In fact, it's still a mystery as to why Chuckie even has any competition from his own party. What's the matter is he not right wing enough? He certainly is no moderate, so what's the point for his opponents? Mayfield has already said he can't think of any vote Chuckie has taken that he disagrees with, so why is he running? Weston Wamp has as much chance of getting elected as the local dog-catcher. Who is Ron Bhalla? This is certainly turning out to be one great big farce for the Third District.

There are possibilities that the Democratic Candidates are much better and are well qualified to hold the elective offices. Under the circumstances these Democratic candidates will give the voters a real test of their judgments on which direction they want this Republic to take. Whether back to the Republicans' pre FDR mind set and their four year conditions before FDR. It does appear that we have reached that point again of the voters deciding on what the role of our Governments' are will be after the private enterprise systems have destroyed our economy through fraud and the global economy. Is it not amazing how this area grew and survived since 1933 from FDR's "new deal policies"? For all of the interested people here is the information you have be speculating about. Come Join us!

Something to THINK about: It is Not a Perfect World; We can continue to Make it BETTER: The VOTER's in 2012 Elections will be the Decider's Do the voters already realize that the recovery from the causes of the 2007 deep recession is going to take a longer time with the spending of money for the recovery? Yet,what are the people who want the failure of President Obama telling us, the voters? It is one thing for the anti Obama people to want his failure, but for them to do everything they can to obstruct and to cause his failure is really down right "meanness," without regard to the negative results to this Republic and to the masses of the 300 million plus people would be.
Do the voters want to go through the long cycle of another great depression that the Republicans appear to want or will they vote to recreate the needed manufacturing and production jobs here while getting this Republic out of the "stalemate" they put us in when they voted the Republicans back in control of the House in 2010 just to cause the failure of President Obama?

WHY and For WHOM are you Voting in the 2012 Elections?

Jack_Dennis said... carlB: "Back to the stone-age?" Like fiscal responsibility, work hard and get ahead, lower taxes, less nanny state? That kind of stone-age?"

NO, Jack_Dennis, you apparently agree with the Republican party line and are pass the point of having the necessary balance for our Republic? It is the swapping the role of our government of placing the control on our private financial systems to the role of legistlating the morality of the people and allowing the private "capitalist systems" to take away all of the workers' bargaining rights and all of their having any representation in the work place.
The objectives of the Republicans are to continue with their "class warfare" and weakening our Governments' ability to help the people after they have been repressed,depressed, and forced into poverty leaving them to fend for themselves and be at the "mercy" of the employers even while their cost of living continues to increase. We already have the history of what the Republicans have done in the past without any plans to end the 1929 great depression before the Days of FDR's new Deals, with the Republicans fighting him and now they do not have any plans to help prevent another great depression and are only fighting and condemning President Obama's plans to get the people back to work as a means of stabilizing the 2007 deep recession while preventing another great depression. Why would the voters want the Republicans back in control since the opponents of Obama have made it "perfectly clear" to the voters/people that their main objectives are to cause the failure of President Obama as if he is the person that created all of the unfinished crisis conditions hat he and his administration are having to address?. Are the Voters not wanting to read between the Republicans' Words or between their Lines? But really they are bllligerently making it clear what their objectives are.

TOES02800: Yet the government created wealth by constructing that road, and benefited all the people using it. The government also provided the system where there was money to be used, and all sorts of other things that ended up with a road. Yes, that's the product government offers. Did you never learn this in school? That the purpose of government is providing you a stable society where you and others can develop wealth and live in safety? Have you never heard of

That created lots of wealth, to the benefit of everybody. Believe it or not, taxation is not a zero-sum game. Your taxes don't just go away, but are used for many productive things which do benefit you and others of your vaunted wealth-creators. If you want to see if you can get people to stand on a highway for a lower price, and pave the road competently, you're more than welcome to set up your own road-paving company and bid it out. Join the host of private companies who are the ones taking the money. Which has its own set of problems, but if all you look at is the unions as the source of your ire, you're going to end up missing the real story.

The people getting rich off the government are more likely to be at the top of organizations, like the ones that use patent and copyright protections, the ones that get tax rebates(Amazon just negotiated for a major package in California), and the ones that get all sorts of subsidies. Heck, just look at the test-taking industry. There's billions to be had with certifying student education, and lots of fine people are getting their pockets filled with it. I know you have been indoctrinated to hate unions, but you could open your eyes to where the money is REALLY going.

And yes, you should have used a different term than anarchy, but chaos would not be appropriate to describe what you're talking about either, since your strawman of an idea is quite authoritarian. Still, you seem to think the rich shouldn't be taxed or they'll leave. But where will they be without the services the government provides? Will they be as wealthy without the society we have? How will they do when they're not protected by laws and a system of justice? Do you expect the people who provide those services to work for free or something? Maybe volunteer? I don't think that'll work. Though it is closer to what's considered anarchy than your idea. As I said, the Civil Libertarians want that, they believe it would bring things to a utopia.

As for the Patient Affordable Care Act, ask people about specific provisions. You'll find that they want to keep all sorts of things in it.

Even if they didn't know it was there.

May 21, 2012 at 11:17 p.m.

bookieturnersghost, thanks for revealing one of the problems of our current political structure, that you have to be a big name to get votes and support.

That's actually not a good thing when you think about it. Tends to lead to a more elitist situation than is probably good for the country.

Kinda wish I had a solution for it.

Oh, and I forgot to add, TOES02800, to be in the top 50% of wealth of the world's population, you just need to have about 4000 USD in assets.

Will they depress and repress people as if they are "slaves" and make laws preventing them to read or write? If you do not agree with what they are saying then either get out and vote against the arrogant not so perfect people passing their judgment on others. If you don't vote against them, then lay down and let the Republicans and the scary "tea party" have their way with you. Believe me the "destroying Party" have many objectives planned to move this Republic back to the "stone age."

Reply; Yes, their plan is to be the obstructionist, "divide and conquer" the voters, by convincing them they made a made a mistake of voting for President Obama. Also using lies, mis leading information, and incomplete information to convince the "dumbed down" voters that everything the President has done in trying to clean up their "mess" has been wrong and if the voters put the Republicans back in control and allowing them to continue putting their long-term objectives of cutting taxes, stopping Government spending , getting rid of FDR's New Deal policies, and turning over everything to be privatized etc; which will result into another "great depression," they can then blame that on President Obama, also.
