Max Baucus didn't call Obamacare a train wreck as Robin Smith claims. He said that insufficient awareness of how the law worked is the train wreck, not the law itself. New York recently reported that premiums there will be dropping 50% thanks to Obamacare. Spreading bogus claims about it as Robin and her ilk do every day is the train wreck. The GOP is a train wreck.
And what are the "successes" in Tennessee that Robin is talking about? Is she referring to our 40+ ranking in employment or our consistent ranking near the bottom of the barrel in education? Is that what she is so proud of?
Drew's editorial is a one-sided attack on the EPB. He might not like the EPB and their funding, but I do take exception when he says this money has gone to waste. The smart grid has reduced the amount of blackouts during our frequent storms of late, and EPB's internet service kills anything that Comcast can offer.
Drew shows that he is a technological Luddite with this quote: "EPB decided to build a souped-up version of the Smart Grid with fiber optics rather than more cost-effective wireless technology."
This editorial could have been written at any time in the past few months and I thought it was poor form that Drew chose the President's visit as a pretense for his anti-EPB spiel.
Don't worry, Drew. I hear Amazon is hiring.
Now Drew Johnson needs a jobs plan.
Glad you made it to the front row, Clay.
Detroit is what happens when Republican free market policies run amok. Corporations don't want to pay a living wage so they take their businesses to Mexico and overseas where they face less regulation and can pay slave wages.
And the city dies.
Michael Moore predicted as much in 1989 with his first film, "Roger and Me."
If your first reaction to this has anything to do with Jesse Jackson, you might be a racist.
Clay, I appreciate the extra effort that went into drawing the folding of the map.
They say, "Dead men tell no tales." I guess that applies to dead children as well.
Love the lamp.
The rest of the tin foil crowd should be along shortly. Oh wait, I see one is already here!
