I love your writing, and love your columns...but one correction on yesterday's column. It is "physicians, nurses, and dentists", not "doctors, nurses, and dentists" Dentists are doctors, doctors of dental surgery. A common mistake made by those not in the medical community. Currently it is harder to get into dental school than medical school, and the folks that do attend dental school work super hard too!. They earn the right to be called Doctor! Just stating my opinion.
Thanks once again David for your well thought out and educated column. I am ashamed to be from Chattanooga today. It is a sad sad day when discrimination is ok. Maybe one day we will evolve...Knoxville got rid of that awful Stacy Campfield, so maybe there is hope for Chattanooga? I sure hope so. Love your writing David!!
PS: I think Mark West is a perfect example of a white man who has something to hide!? Otherwise why would he care so much about who someone loves or chooses to share their life with? Me thinks he is a closet case..
If all the Wamp supporters will please cross-over and vote for Dr. Mary Headrick, maybe, just maybe, we can get rid of Do Nothing Chuck. I am ashamed to be from Tennessee today. Idiots..
I have no party affiliation; I vote for the person. In the last few years, I have voted mostly for democrats, as I cannot stomach the hate and bigotry coming from the far right. I am a social liberal and more fiscally conservative, so I don't know where I really fit. However, I sure know one thing; I will cross any party line to vote against Fleishman. Wamp most definately will receive my vote and any others I can find for him. A democrat has zero chance of winning this seat anyway. Fleishman is the biggest douche bag I have ever encountered. He refuses to speak to his anyone in the district, hides from people, and uses his pulpit like a bully. I sent him a letter against his voting record, and now the idiot and the idiots that work for him constantly and consistently send me emails and postal mail railing against the president as if I am a supporter! Such a joke. Just shows not only does he not read letters from people in his district, he doesn't care at all what you have to say. He doesn't get it at all. A member of my family went to law school with him, and said he was shocked when he heard he was running for Congress because he is so backward in dealing with people. He shrinks when around a group. I implore any Democrat or Indep. in this district to cross any and all party lines to vote against Fleishman. He needs to go and go soon, as he is a joke.
PS: I love you Clay Bennett!! Now get on Wes Snyder and his love nest next!!
Why is it always the "Tennessee Temple", "Bible Thumping", "White Older Man" who is such a homophobe?? Mark West looks like he is hiding something. Maybe he is trying to pray the gay away and it did not work? Maybe he thinks his marriage to his Tennessee Temple beauty will keep him on the straight and narrow?? Seems to me he is the demographic ( white male, older, fundamentalist ) that always screams the loudest about gay rights. Sounds like he has a huge problem??
David...just found out and thought you might like to know that the King DB, Kevin Huffman, also known as the champion of public education sends his daughter to Harpeth Hall in Nashville!! He sure supports his "common core" BS...He is killing us teachers, doesn't support us at all, wants to destroy the system...and it's not good enough for his daughter!! What a hypocritical bastard...your pal ( you know who I am, we email )
PS: I can't wait to see Clay Bennett get hold of this one!!
Bravo David...I love your writing, and I am a huge fan!! I am certain this story will be on the Daily Show or the Colbert Report, and once again show our area of Tennessee to be the bigoted, judgemental, racist area that it is. I feel badly for the Coopers, but this "minister" ( ha ha ) did you a huge favor. You are now free to join a loving, caring, kind, compassionate church that follows the Real Teachings of Jesus.....LOVE...keep it up David...
Thanks once again David for standing up for teachers! You are so spot on with your opinion of Kevin Huffman..He's a total DB, and terrible for education...all of us who work in the trenches of public education thank you for consistently having our backs!!
