"They won't even need the Chattanooga plant in a few years. It will shut down just like in Pennsylvania."

If this does happen, and it might well, good luck blaming the UAW for the Chattanooga plant's failure.

Let me translate these comments into English from Ramseyspeak.

“Ron Ramsey wants to punish the TN Supreme Court because Bob Cooper is the state attorney general and conducts an independent office not beholden to him or the interests he represents. The court is collateral damage in the fight to oust Cooper. However, the plus side is we can axe 3 Bredesen appointees and replace them with partisan judges beholden to our interests. The “investigation” Bell and I are cooking up will throw up enough of a smokescreen that low information voters can be easily swayed to vote them out of office. The Board of Judicial Conduct, which Ramsey had a hand in appointing, wouldn’t go along with our game so this is our end run around them.”

This “investigation” is simply a charade. If anyone is “twisting words and conjuring up technicalities” it is Speaker Ramsey and his henchmen who cannot stomach the idea of an independent judiciary that does not do their bidding. The JPEC did their job fairly and honestly but Ramsey can’t stomach the result.

Read the truth about Ramsey’s power grab.

Well played Dawg, you covered just about all of them. However, don't omit Cousin Brucie from your list. Yes, he is still going strong on paid radio but it just isn't the same as trying to pick him out of the static during late nights sitting up listening to the AM clear channel stations.

Maybe you have to be really old or a movie buff but few actresses had a more memorable number of lines than Mae West. Take your pick and these are only a few of them.

"Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"

"Why don't you come up sometime and see me?"

"I only like two kinds of men, domestic and imported."

"Between two evils, I generally like to pick the one I never tried before."

She was definitely the mistress of the double entrende and she got away with them even with the censorship of the Hays office in the 1930's.

D-Day definitely merits consideration as Memorial Day celebrations, along with the rest of our way of life, would have ended without those kids storming the beaches and many giving their lives to defeat the Axis powers.

Your point about America becoming banker Potter's America is accurate but you cited the wrong Potter. It's Henry Potter, not Harry Potter,

How about Hank Bauer?

He had a .277 career batting average, with 164 homers, 703 runs batted, enlisted in the Marine Corps one month after Pearl Harbor earned 2 Bronze Stars and 2 Purple Hearts, the second one at Okinawa fighting off a Japanese counterattack (he was a lieutenant by then) that got him sent home for good.

He is my personal preference because in 1968, I was part of the flag detail presenting the colors at an Indians game. That was the only time I ever saw any player or manager pay any attention to our ceremony on the field. I don't remember the score of the game but I can never forget how he watched us.

Absolutely positively 100% dead on accurate depiction of the situation in District 1! Kudos to Clay for this one.

Hey IM, through an oversight I'm sure, you left Louisiana and Mississippi off of your list of "Intelligence Optional" states.
