The article on Steve Woods and his dad stirs the love of our country and the great people who've sacrificed for us all. Great stuff!
On the Delta Queen, please remove the thought that it's a paddle boat and view it as a business that has obtained the necessary legal permits to do business in Chattanooga. Allowing a few city big names to declare one item an eyesoar, while sticking the taxpayers with various pieces of "art" and artscaping, seems to ignore the fact that the Delta Queen is a business.
I read the last "opinion" involving the greatness of America in relation to the newly crowned Miss America. I now read this piece that restates the obvious criticism from a young man who thinks a lot of himself without offering any solution.
I don't think I'm willing to read anything else that lacks substance.
As I sit in a northeastern city on business reading this, I can promise you the UAW and organized labor unions do not assist the average worker. The company with which I met today had a very dim view of Tennessee's prospects if the UAW or any organized labor unions gain access.
The statements calling for American leadership and "backbone" are hilariously viewed by the left as "war."
Do you not see that if this President and his State Department had been "consistent and vigilant in foreign policy" for the last five years that America would not be in this embarrassing situation with no allies and enemies laughing. Effective diplomacy and leadership have been absent in this Administration.
I simply love the opportunity to capture in black and white the comments of Democrats who equate leadership with war. Priceless.
The contrast between someone who has the ability to offer opinions and possesses business accomplishment may never be so stark as today's opinion pages.
The left offers the group-think and group-rewards philosophy that destroys individual success. This side offers political opinion but offers the reality of economic forces that exert themselves in response to idiotic policies.
I will continue to subscribe to the paper as long as this balance continues. It offers a true benefit to those of us who run businesses and should expose the fallacy of the left.
Completely predictable. The contrast between this piece, written by a full-time journalist with only opinions applauds group-think, group-work, and group-benefits. The right side hits the real mark in noting today's economy is a part-time economy because individual effort is taxed and penalized causing individual success to be destroyed with only the government growing. Mrs. Smith not only has political views but, obviously, business experience to even have the insight to assimilate these numbers into a valid explanation to our current woes.
This is the ultimate example that contrast those who hold opinions and those who actually accomplish through work. Kudos!
I took a few minutes to confirm this. Very impressive Hamitlon County leaders. I'm not sure how much the average person will appreciate this, but the business community should certainly view this as an assurance.
It's great to see this area competing with counties of middle Tennessee that gain the spotlight quite frequently.
We'll see if anyone has the courage to file a suit against either of these for Open Meetings violations. All actions could be halted in both cases and ultimately voided by the court.
Both Hutcheson and Erlanger have no regard for the public, only their own financial interests. And now, we know that.
It must be close to an election. Both the Dad and the son are suddenly more visible with all sorts of advice and their "solutions" for conservatives.
As a business man, I attend a lot of events. A lot. Never have I seen either Zach or Weston engage for the good of others, only the good of themselves.
I hope this won't be a regular "feature" of this paper.
If our President would decide to get off the golf course and look at a real jobs program that took people off food stamps into a community college or certificate program that led into a job, we'd see that this article is based on a law of nature: work is always better than entitlement.
But, I'm assuming this President has any desire to govern. Like so many of the angry Tea Party members on the right, the left only wants to campaign, push their philosophy and neglect the notion that there is a balance between complete anarchy and complete state control.
