An Open Response to Bob Corker
Thank you for your work as Mayor to make Chattanooga so livable and vibrant. Likewise I appreciate your help in landing VW here. You've shown you can work with your colleagues in TN who not coincidentally are all Republicans.
But we elected you to the national stage to work for the nation. A strong Chattanooga surrounded by a corrupt Tennessee and a dysfunctional national government is just the tallest midget in the freak show.
We need you to decide if you want to be a big fish in TN (then run for governor - we could use one) or pay attention to national issues. The system isn’t working- jobs, debt, trade, education, & infrastructure define the success of a society. You've shown potential in your proposed gas tax legislation. Build on that and you could be presidential timber. But you have to leave the local governing behind. It's not what we pay you to do.
Like the 4 year old he emulates, Connie behaves with his learning a new word - "strident".
I love it when you speak Latin to me Connie you big boy you.
Connie, besides acting like a 4 year old horse's butt you don't know the contraction of "will not" is "won't", not "want".
Glad you were able to foam at the mouth about your other life - homosexuality. Congrats - it was a good day for you.
"Flash"man is a puppet; Pinocchio was smarter. I say vote for Wamp!
This article made connie so happy. He had so many people to hate, facts to question when he himself has no facts. Wonderful example of his bible. If only this article had been about poor gay people it would have been perfect for him. connie here's a bibilical quote from the part of the bible you never bothered to read.
From Matthew 34-40 "Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
Who's biblical "values". If the examples of racism, homophobia and antipathy to anyone different from you are the values you derive from your bible - we don't need them.
Why would we teach intolerance, pomposity, arrogance, disdain for others that you've been taught?
PS to Inquiring Mind and AlPro,
Watch your back side. His insurance just covered the latest ED treatment and Con "Man" is looking for you. Don't pick up the soap.
Can you call your business 'Christian' when arguing before the Supreme Court, and then set aside Christian values when you're placing a bulk order for cheap wind chimes," wrote Christian author and columnist Jonathan Merritt???
Well what say ya?
Zablee or wtf you call yourself. My guess is your overweight and in poor health. Time isn't your friend. History isn't on your side.
If you took care of your health you wouldn't be so angry.
The tide of history and more importantly demographics runs against those who cling to the good ole (white) days.
You can sit on the train track and be flattened or you can climb on board and help decide where we will, all together, go.
But you can't stop the direction of the USA to a more diverse country: more diverse in ethnicity, more diverse in sexual identity, more diverse in religious beliefs (or non-beliefs).
Anyone who has read American history knows that the judiciary lags behind the pace of change of the executive and legislative branches. So this decision is no surprise to a student of American history. But the judiciary lagging behind didn't change the direction of history just its pace.
