It is no wonder the Times Free Press did away with commenting on news articles. Such cowards hiding behind their computer screens tossing insults after insults like children.
Gas prices are no more controlled by the president than by Dolly Parton. Bush or Obama. The latest rise in gas prices if any of you can remember back far enough was the instability in Libya. Prices rose rapidly then. There is enough fault to go around for increasing fuel costs such as speculators on wall street, unrest in all the middle east countries, our own oil companies exporting our oil to China and beyond because they can get a higher price and of course Iran's decision to boycott some European countries.
You guys blaming Obama and Bush sound utterly ridiculous.
BTW, I'm not saying the other side doesn't do it also but this was about FOX.
Carolyn McCrary.....While news reporting on FOX such as Shepard Smith is truthful it is the talking heads on FOX such as O'Reily, Hannity etc that distort and cherry pick the facts they want you to hear and shout down or dismiss anything that does not fit the message they are trying to send.
These advisors and commitees will do no good for the short term problem. Maybe they can change the behavior of future at risk kids but I doubt it. The current gang problem needs to be met with overwhelming force and maximum sentences for any of these weekly shootings going on. Bring in the National Guard if need be.
I haven't watched the end of a prime time sporting event in 20 years. Who can stay up till midnight or later when you have to get up early to work?
Good call. This fad too will pass. Since commenting on articles began some few years back the hate has grown rapidly. People say the meanest things behind the safety of their screens. I will miss it as it is strangely irresistable to read the comments as stupid as most of them are but still.....Good Call TFP
Inquiringmind....actually it happened right outside the door of the "church". The Cherry ST. entrance.
After reading the article and the comments I must conclude:
1. The problem is with the blacks. Duh. Isn't that obvious? This type behavior happens only at black clubs or with their patrons. What happens in Portland with skinheads is irrelevant to what happens in Chattanooga. Our problem is blacks. Theirs is skinhead whites.
2. This is not a problem that the mayor can solve. Its a police and parenting problem. Period. The problem trying to crack down on this problem is the yells of racism if you target the blacks too much.
3. My solution is to saturate the black problem clubs (or white ones if they become a problem) with police and frisk every single person.....every time the doors are open. If they walk in groups downtown, stop them and frisk them. To hell with political correctness. This is a problem that needs to be stopped now, not later.
Chuckie voted no after running around on the House floor shrieking at the top of his lungs "Johnnie, Johnnie, how do you want me to vote?" What a puss.
I am seriously amazed that Chuck can walk and talk at the same time. What a dunce.
