LBJ said no such thing about having blacks voting for either party. He said,
"We have just lost the South for a generation." to an aide, upon having signed the Civil Rights Act.
He was wrong, outside of Jimmy Carter and 1976 it has been closer to 60 years.
Good for you Ikeithlu. An informed opinion is the only ones we should share.
On the Walnut St Bridge, north side, some folks have been standing quietly with sign boards offering to speak about their religion to anyone interested. Maybe it's just me, but I have far more respect for how they are living their faith than the name calling screamers.
Agree with Whatsthefuss.
I hope tattoos yield the wearers something in the trade for a life time commitment to a decision that many of them made when they were young. I don't see it and I don't have one but I support the rights of Americans to choose to have a tattoo (or more).
I see conservative has to work homosexuality into his comments this morning. Off topic sir.
There appears to be plenty of topics in the letters to which you can judge others this morning without the need for bringing up a favorite topic of yours.
Fairmon - who replaced us? Show your reasoning and data.
On Thanksgiving, those living in Chattanooga can thank a government initiative that we have a city in which to live. Without TVA there is no riverfront for most of us or lakefront homes for some. The only private dam on the Tennessee was 10 years late, $10 million over budget and leaked. It would have breached in the floods of 1973 and 2003.
Private enterprise = not always the answer
Government = not always the answer
Compromise = necessary activity to get things done and have a functioning country.
Pointing out another's failures without proposing a solution is a failure itself. Congratulations Pam - you fail. Being outraged by something without offering a solution is a failure. Congratulations to all the outraged people - you fail. The desire to cast stones at the darkness rather than work to light a candle says volumes about the laziness of the leadership of our country right now. Demand better. Demand that our leaders reach out and listen, speak without using poisonous judgmental language. Seek to understand opinions that differ from their own, craft workable compromises, get this country working again.
Vote everytime the polls open. If you don't care enough to vote, then shut up and live with the outcome.
Most of the comments are just "meh" about the student being tackled by the police. Is that because she was espousing what some on here call "the Lord's Word"? I suspect is the lady was promoting gay/lesbian rights or sex education there would be a very different reaction by the same posters.
