Rant

APPLE DODGED paying taxes on $44 billion. Our tax code didn't get carved out by poor people.

THE POWER OF government and the power of big money are in a battle for control of our country. Who do you hope wins?

GREAT NEWS from the IRS scandal: Republicans defending federal funding of social welfare organizations. The tea party demanding unquestioned recognition as a social welfare organization.

WHERE CAN I go to get that job teaching line dancing to the IRS? It's more appropriate to call it "The Hustle"!

AS STATED IN the Constitution: Authority not specifically given to the federal government falls directly to the states and the people! Let's demand it.

DOCTORS: MEDICARE/MEDICAID recipients are not the ones who voted for the cuts. They need you.

I WISH THE local news had local news. We get the world news at 6:30.

IF THE PHOTO or headline is important, please do not cover it with a stick-on advertisement. Keep the ads in their proper place.

MAYOR BERKE, please drive St. Elmo Avenue to the Georgia border, then initiate repairs or explain why the road is so terribly neglected.

MANCHESTER, THE "Hate Capital of Tennessee." Welcome to the "Friendly" South.

I SEE ALLEN WEST is joining "Faux" News. Are he and Mark West brothers? Seems like a fit in the anarchist community.

Well Manchester Hate Capital because they...shared their opinions huh. If you want to see Hate Capitals, go to lands where the peace-loving advocates of a certain religion are in charge and share an opinion different to theirs. Admittedly, it is sad to read about the shout down and lack of respect shown by Coffey County residents at the "whatever" sensitivity meeting that was held. But to call it the Hate Capital of Tennessee, come on now.

Livn4life,

You're not doing much for your point by comparing the United States to backward and, in some cases, Third-World countries.

If the folks in Manchester were protesting a prayer in taxpayer funded, government meetings or a Nativity scene, you would be up in arms over it and using it as another example of how Christians are persecuted. The hypocrisy of Christians like yourself is always apparent when it is YOU voicing your "opinion" instead of that of a Muslim, Atheist, Jew, etc. It always seems to be "hate" and "intolerance" when those non-Christian folks are voicing their "opinions".

Let's just get rid of all religion. Then we can all get along without your superstition, bigotry, ignorance, hypocrisy, and fundamental lack of basic reasoning skills getting in the way.
