It use to be said Chattanooga and its CPD have sunken to an all time low. Now the question is, how much lower will they sink for the sake of entertainment?

This so called WAR ON DRUGS has forever tarnished, tainted and corrupted America's law enforcement. Right up there and along with the so called WAR ON WH*RES. Better known as the WAR ON PROSTITUTION. Some of the greatest consumers of both are the very ones who are suppose to be fighting them.

finally someone with the intellect to break it all down. Thank you Mr. Wilson.

Another thing to consider, and I've thought about for a long time, is if this officer, Collins, is acting on behalf of some of his friends who own clubs downtown and using his position to shut down any competition, he needs to be fully investigated and gotten rid of. I've noticed, for quite some time now, it seems some Chattanooga clubs are being specifically targeted and singled out, while other clubs are rarely in the news. That is, until one of their after hours drinking waiters goes out and kills someone. Then the truth can't be hidden or covered up.

Groups such as ‘CAIR’ try to argue about freedom of religion. It isn’t. It’s about the supremacy of constitutional law. Sharia law demands supremacy over man-made law. A couple of years ago the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America issued a fatwa declaring that, according to Islamic law, rape cannot exist in a marriage because a woman is required to consent to her husband. BOING!?!? It was this reasoning that prompted a New Jersey judge in to deny issuing a restraining order against a Muslim man who was sexually abusing his wife. Further: Sharia law provides that a woman’s testimony in court is equal to only half that of a man’s

You haven't stated anything about Sharia law that hasn't or doesn't in U.S. laws.

I. It's only been recent years in America where a spouse could be charged with sexually assaultin or rape against a fellow spouse.

II. Try going to court and try to prove someone such as a cop lied. You're testimony won't even be half equal to that of the testimony of a cop. You just out and out won't be believe by the courts. And that's man-made up laws.

............*The only thing more disturbing than Tea Party and the GOP is imagining Cain as the next president. That's a Stephen King novel nightmare.

rolando, have you ever ridden a bus? Do you think a bus will stop long enough and wait for you while you go into a store to purchase a moneygram?

What redistribution of wealth? Those people hold down jobs too. Some are holding down more than one job. Some are likely low-waged jobs. Of course, you don't mind your taxes being spent to wage wars on countries that were never a threat to US? Or pay billions upon billions to countries that don't like US?

Sure, right! memphisE. We can just see all the responses a story gets when it's some African-American or Hispanic person verses some white person from Signal Mtn., Hixson, Harrison, Soddy Daisy and the rest.

That pic of Thurman makes her appear a little insane and unstable. I've always considered the possibility.

As for those blacks who actually believe Thurman cares about ALL the childre, black white and other, please listen closely to the negative remarks she's made over the years mainly against black children and the black community in general. You'll never hear her make any remarks about litte white johnny or suzy coming to school stoned and drunk. She's always bashing black students. There are white children too who are reading below level. Some can barely read at all. Where are the comments about those from her? You'll never hear her make any remarks about the white students failing in the school system. Or the parents, so high on meth and other drugs, that the students barely make it to school. Again, why? And why, when Thurman has made such derogatory statements against blacks and black children only, there have been members in the black community that actually thank her for "telling it like it is?"

Rhonda's comments are certainly racist and at least insensitive. However, she's had plenty of encouragement from "certain" members of the black community.

timbo said... XYzyra (still in the car ) you must be on crack . The state scores and statisticsthey are doing horribly . the reason is the sorry culture and poor parenting that takes place in these districts.


timbo, your personal attacks roll off me like water. I've never "smoked crack." Nor used any drugs for that matter, not even a cigarette has ever touched my lips. Maybe, you should stop cooking and using that meth? I

There are bad parents in every level and class of society. Rich, poor and in between. Test scores have never told the whole picture. In fact, most anyone can be taught to take and pass a test without actually knowing the subject matter. That's why many scholars would like to do away with these testings altogether. America's children are being over-tested, but they're still not learning the basics. Even those that will pass every test with flying colors. When the time comes for critical thinking, most fail and fail horribly, no matter how high they scored on tests.

whoknows said... xyzyra: your example really only supports what Rhonda was saying. You gave an example of ONE child in the inner city schools whose parents cared enough about her education to take it more seriously.


whoknows, you obviously missed the point. In order for the student to have been smarter than the private schooled students who'd been in private schooling all of their lives, the inner-city schools couldn't have been as bad as they're being made out to be.

As most everyone constantly harp on and degrade inner city schools, for sure there must be students failing at those other schools too. As many, when they go on to college must take remedial courses. I know when I attended college there were equal numbers to more white students than blacks who had to take those remedial courses.

What the black community needs to understand is that the grass really isn't greener on the other side. Upon closer look, you get to see all those bald spots and dry patches.

I don't agree with what Ms. Thurmond said. Black children in inner-city schools are doing exceptionally well, when they're learning is not being sabotaged by overt and covert racist and racism. I have a neighbor whose child attended an inner-city public school they place the child in a private school, believing she'd learn even more. Believe it or not, that child who had been taught in inner-school until being placed in a private school came in already smarter than her private schooled fellow students who had attended a private school all of their lives. The child out tested them on every test. So, there's something else going on here when inner-city students are testing below average. The only thing that comes to mind is there are sabotagers among them. Helping to create this image of failure.

That said, I have heard members of the black community virtually say the exact same thing. The Rhonda Thurmonds out there, racist or not, are only bouncing off the words many have heard members of the black community say bad things about their own children, their own communities, their own race.

After being warned for years and years the power of words, it took a personal tragedy for a well known entertainer and activist to realize this is the same America yesterday, today, tomorrow and always. The same America he grew up in having being chased by lynch mobs. Some things don't change.

When some of the most racist hate groups in America start to use your words as quotes against your own, you know whatever messages you intended to send were not the right things to say from the very beginning.

Just remember, everyone who smiles in your face and offers you something is not your friend. They're just sizing you up to be the main course of the meal.
