    I agree. Well said.
    And it is sad to say it kept making me think of Amerika today and we are heading.

    A similar question to the title of the story that I have always had is – Why do we struggle to remember Slavery today?
    Is it really to remind us NOT to repeat or just to keep people pi$$ed off and angry?

    Hey Kendall.
    Here’s your chance to be famous.
    Make/Sell him some classy pictures yourself, take his money and wait for Playboy to call…

    And you certainly don’t look like a little “kid” to me.

    Just sayin…

    I’ve heard of guys paying for porn but this guy must be in LOOOOOOVE to pay that kinda money.

    To be “fair”.
    If a man shoots a .44 into the air on July 4th, should he be ALLOWED to own guns?
    I don’t think so.
    And I support gun rights.
    Firing a gun inside city limits is outlawed for good reason.
    Too many stupid people would do it just because they CAN, and people would
    no doubt die oin occasion.

    But if this was a BB gun, the cops were dead wrong.

    Lack of detail on the story is probably done on purpose – to incite irrational
    people who speak out angrily without all the facts.

    you are correct, my bad.
    MY point is that it isn’t about the minimum wage at ALL.
    Its about sharing profits with the people that make the profits happen.

    And the Gvmt should NOT be involved with the change.
    In this “Free market” the top dogs must make that move because they CARE about
    their employees and WANT them to have better lives.
    As IF.

    And a LOWER min wage is even worse that a higher one – as long as their is still no sharing of stock/bonuses/etc..

    Their should be NO MINIMUM WAGE at all – but that would have to include the insane thought that the top dogs would do the right thing ON THEIR OWN.

    And we all know the liklihood of that…

    I’m no Bill Gates fan but what he says will happen HAS BEEN happening for years.

    ATMs eliminate tellers.
    Self checkout eliminates cashiers.
    Robots have eliminated 1000s of human jobs.
    The list goes on and on.
    America is awesome at automation – which is all ABOUT letting machines and
    computers do work faster than people.

    And most importantly – all at substantial saving for the millionaires/billionaires
    running those companies.

    But I disagree with his solution – raising minimum wage.

    The solution that NEEDS to happen is that all employees share in the profits and decisions of the company instead of letting those select few at the top make millions while cutting hours / wages of those who actually do the work.
    You know full well you are being asked to do MORE work with less help these days
    with fewer preks – i.e free coffee etc. – while those at the TOP are making more than ever.
    As are stockholders

    I’ll NEVER be a Democrat but it is getting harder and harder to be Republican seeing what the big companies (primarilly backed by Republicans) are doing to the entire working class.

    All us in the middle are heading downhill fast.

    This story is about COGIC.
    Memphis USED to host their convention every year. No More.
    And you won’t find ONE DNAM waiter that is upset about it.
    Groups of 20-50.
    VERY demanding that they be treated like kings and queens –
    while they all show off and compare their 300 dollar HATS.

    And then leave a TOTAL of $5 after a noisy group of 20 occupies the room for 3 hours.

    I have MANY friends in the restaurant business and they are ELATED that the
    convention moved to St Louis.

    Outside of COGIC, I have heard nothing…

    Perhaps Ward, June, Wally and the Beav just don’t get out enough to know what a good tip IS…

    yet clicking on YOUR name shows you post almost daily as well…
    ME? Maybe once a month since I noticed a long time ago how your comments about the same people over and over are correct.
    This one just amazed me how it was supposed to be SO important and yet I wouldn’t give ANY of them an autograph if they paid me…

  • March 3, 2014 at 2:23am

    I am soooooo happy to say I don’t understand this at all.

    Apparantly there are things about these people that other people know.
    Other than Ellen being gay and all being actors of some sort, I know nothing about them
    or why this particular group is “better” than any other particular group of actors/actresses.

    And trust me – I don’t WANT to know – so don’t bother responding…

    The fact that the markets have fallen over the last few days – as great profits and lower unemployment numbers have been released are a sure sign of bad things to come.
    It is PROOF that the markets are being propped up by the GVMT’s 86B per month cash printing press.
    Because good numbers on Wall Street mean the Fed is LESS likely to keep printing all that money, since this supposed market recover is well underway.

    The funny thing is that high profits are being posted by companies not due to incresed SALES, but because of decreased SPENDING, and cost cutting measures – mostly at the worker’s expense. The big profit numbers – which have been hurting the workers are NOW going to hurt the companies and markets when the Fed quits dumping cash.

    It would all be hilariously ironic to watch stock prices and corporate bonuses take massive nosedives – if it weren’t for the fact that 401ks and the entire world market are going to be the end recipient of disaster due to companies raping workers for the last several years, and ALL because the USGovmt is dumping cash to keep interest low due to their massive DEBT problem.

    Full circle disaster HAS to follow…

    This is nothing but a COMMERCIAL!!!

    tsk tsk tsk.

    This case has nothing to do with who they voted for or what color they are.
    The punkazz kid thinks he is as “entitled” to be in traffic like a car.
    Just like many Bicycle riders do.

    Anyone with common courtesy would have let the van turn, this jerk didn’t.

    He deserved what he got, considering the violent attack.
    Same to any bicycle rider doing 10MPH in a 35 zone
    that won’t get out of the way.

    Bikes and skateboards are toys.
    Now he knows the difference.

    But watch him get permanent disability and never have to work again,
    ASSUMING he ever did in the 1st place…

    I’d be willing to drop ALL limits on gun control if we would start executing more criminals.

    As long as the crime is on tape, has DNA evidence, or multiple credible witnessess, etc., I’d execute within 48 hours of a trial.


    And that goes for ANY crime committed with a weapon, even if no one is injured in the process.
    Guns, knives, bats, frying pans, cars, etc can all be considered weapons when USED as such.

    Crimes of “passion” could be exempt, but anyone leaving their house with INTENT to rob, rape, injure, kill an undeserving/unwitting person should be executed if a crime ends up happening.

    Yes, with that, NO limits on gun control whatsoever…

    But that is not gonna happen due to the ACLU and such that give more rights to criminals than the victims.

    Does anyone really think that convicted (and released) murderers shoud be able to buy guns?
    Or child sex offenders?

    I mean, SOME rules MUST apply.
    Sure, the gvmt has gone toooooo far but to actually believe ANYONE should be able to get an AR15 is a bit much.

    Be real.

    I would suggest citizens STEAL them if that type of thing weren’t possibly illegal, so I WON’T.

    They would then have to be replaced with new ones, and are also “collectable” since the passage of the new law.

    Now remember, I am NOT suggesting people STEAL THEM just because they might be valuable…

    from an Email I received a while ago –

    You always hear about Social Security running out of money.
    Why do we never hear about Welfare running out of money?

    I would have done a doughnut in the crowd of bikes in my rude a$$ pickup.
    Take out as many as possible.

    I always though it was handled pretty well in Smokey and the Bandit
    with dude’s 18 wheeler as well.
    Just no bikers on the bikes…

    And to the story itself, it sounds like something happed PRIOR to the “slowdown” and resulting
    What happened is the real question.
    That camera was only turned on after there was a reason.
    Something happened prior.

    If that camera caught EVERYTHING, then yes, run them ALL over.

    I’m proud of her for speaking out about the all too common way of life around here…

  • September 27, 2013 at 4:30pm

    I love this town.

    We always get in the news for the most amazing things.
    I don’t know either of these folks but the story is all too common here.
    Bad or no parenting, grown folks acting like children.
    No acceptance of responsibility, bad work ethics.
    Financing $300 tennis shoes when you can’t pay rent…

    I don’t know if “merely” the lack of a father in one’s life can be held to blame for all of the above
    – and this about people I know personally, not this young lady – but the lack of 2 parents constantly being there for the kids can’t be good.

    We have churches on every corner and yet shootings and drivebys almost daily.
    People go to church just to SAY they go to church but learn nothing.

    Boys still walk around with one hand holding up their pants trying to look “tough” because that is all they have.
    When you have no education, no car, no home or homelife to be proud of, you end up ganging together with others like you and claiming your “street” to be your property, resulting in turf wars and hoodrats.

    Females without fathers cling to any man they know due to a need for a strong male voice in their life,
    Boys act out in anger.

    This goes for ALL RACES in this country – so don’t misunderstand me there…

    This young lady’s letter proves she DID get an education, as she sounds very schooled.
    And the uneducated in this town would say she is trying to be “white”, and scold he for it.

    It is a sad sad commentary on society.

    I’m pr
