Up for Debate: Council speaks out; state may compromise

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 2:12am

The Metro Council again voiced its disapproval of legislation that would allow a state charter authorizer to sidestep local authority in Davidson and Shelby counties. Ahead of a General Assembly vote on the bill, what (if any) compromise do you see on the issue?

By: dargent7 on 2/20/13 at 1:05

Bud: It's not a matter of SELF cntrol. It's mental illness.
SELF control is only eating half of a bag of potato chips, not the whole bag. Drinking a 12oz. Coke instead of a 48oz. Goint to the gym when you don't feel like it.
McCready attempted suicide 2x before. And this time, shot her ex-boyfriend's dog before she killed herself. He had committed suicide earlier last year.
Pistorias is going down, big time, on this one.
So, "an intruder" decides to take a shower in his bathroom before he attacks/ robs him?
4 shots? Gets access into a 'Gated community" (need a card) and into a home with alarms?
At 26 he's DONE. Legs or no legs.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/20/13 at 1:07

dargent, i don't think Pistorias has a leg to stand on.

By: Loner on 2/20/13 at 1:08

Darge, legally, Pistorius doesn't have a leg to stand on....he's the OJ of So. Africa?

If you believe his shit, you must acquit.

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 1:08

I felt sorry for her.. until I read she shot the dog.

By: Loner on 2/20/13 at 1:08

Bn beat me to it.....AAARRRR!!!

By: yogiman on 2/20/13 at 1:08

As a favor, Loner, Im offering you an article on Obama's "tour" as a CIA agent. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. www.novakeo.com/?p=6138/

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/20/13 at 1:09

Yeah, what does the poor dog have to do with it? Maybe she was afraid no one would take care of him once she was gone.

By: Loner on 2/20/13 at 1:13

To the plank, troll! AAARRR, don't make me hang you at the yardarm....aye, tis what ye deserves! Bilge rat!

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 1:13

Maybe his girl friend was making fun of his name... Pistorius... ha ha ha
What are you.. a Roman or something? bang bang bang bang

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 1:15

She pissed off Pistorius.. who was known to have a short fuse.. and legs

By: Loner on 2/20/13 at 1:16

She knew that the dog would rather be shot in the head than live without her, Slack...she was being merciful...what an outlandish ego....pharaoh-like. Hard to feel empathy for that.

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 1:17

nazi, it makes you wonder if she didn't off her boyfriend, and stage a suicide.

By: Loner on 2/20/13 at 1:19

In Latin, Pistorius means one who is pissed off....Google it. Caesar had to put down a revolt by the Pistororians....I don't make this stuff up.

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 1:19

I'm going to reopen the case, and investigate from my computer.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/20/13 at 1:20

Could be. Or if she were on a bender and grieving and took it out on the dog then decided to do herself in. I read that there was a court petition to remove her kids and they think that was what threw her over the edge. She had a history of substance abuse.

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 1:26

Shoot low boys... its the Pistororians.. and they're riding Shetland ponies..

By: gdiafante on 2/20/13 at 1:28

McCready was a trainwreck. But that Celebrity Rehab has a helluva track record...what, four or five dead celebrities now? Some one should really look at Dr. Drew exploiting these people.

Pistorius is building his defense...'roid rage. You wait and see.

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 1:33

I would go with mercury poisoning leached from his springees

By: Loner on 2/20/13 at 1:44

Gotta run...later!

By: dargent7 on 2/20/13 at 1:59

Yeah, Dr. Drew's "Celebrity Rehab" was a sick joke on tv.
Leif Garrett?
All these cry-babies moaned and groaned and got into cat fights about virtually nothing.
5 suicides in 3 years.
Pistorias is claiming he didn't have his prothesis on when he heard the shower, so he "ran" over on "my stumps". Jesus!
The girrl was sleeping next to him and the dummie doesn't think it's her in the bathroom?
Say good-bye to Nike and Oakley.

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 2:20

Pistorius, Pinskey, Prothesis, I think we're on to something here....

By: bfra on 2/20/13 at 2:26

slacker - At one point, they had mentioned she possibly killed the boyfriend, but didn't hear anymore about it.

By: yogiman on 2/20/13 at 2:56

Sorry, B2,

I must disagree with you. I believe anyone who accepts someone as their president who refuses to identify himself is and idiot.

A little show on your man you might like to see.


By: yogiman on 2/20/13 at 3:00

Another ridiculous show you might like to see about your dope dealing friend.


By: bfra on 2/20/13 at 3:00

himself is and idiot.


By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/20/13 at 3:08

yogi, I would expect nothing of you other than moronic, repetative braying.

By: slacker on 2/20/13 at 3:27

yogi, if everyone agreed with you.. would you stop the repetitous posts

By: dargent7 on 2/20/13 at 3:27

yogi: Obama "refuses to identify himself..."?
Google "Obama", then Google "Paul Wade".
Obama has 4 pages....you have NONE.
So, who's "a somebody" and who's "the nobody"?
While you're at it, explain for us idiots and dumb folk, how Trumps B.C. is short form and has a bar code from 1946.

By: yogiman on 2/20/13 at 3:44

I'm not interested in how many pages of publicity Obama has, dargent7. I'm only interested pointing out just who in the hell he is. And one thing he isn't; he is not a Christian as he clams.

Question: Why was his religion shown as Islam on his school papers from Indonesia? Could it be because he is a Muslim?

Points to ignore.noted a year ago:
1. Obama's father and stepfather were Muslims.
2. Hussein is a Muslim name reserved only for Muslims of Islamic Creed.
3. Four years of Indonesian school enrollments records reveal his religion is Islam.
5. His children get no Christmas gifts. A Muslim tradition.
6. Obama employed several Nation of Islam members in high positions on his Illinois and U.S. Senate campaign and office staffs.
7. Senator Obama stated that Israel is the cause of all Mideast problems an he is towing the Muslim line that Israel is an apartheid state. (It's going to be interesting to see what happens when he goes over there)

There's more.

By: yogiman on 2/20/13 at 3:50

While you're waiting for more, you can see how many of the communist nations are endorsing him. Don't you even wonder why? Or don't you care because you're in the party with him?


By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/20/13 at 3:53

yogi's mom should have crossed her legs and spit.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/20/13 at 3:57

Anyone that thinks yogi is intelligent has a yogi for brains.

By: yogiman on 1/26/13 at 3:13
dumba$$, you couldn't even pass a spelling test, let alone a test of intelligence.
Want to try one? Check on google or bing and take a test.
By: Captain Nemo on 1/26/13 at 3:33
I took the test yogi and a made a 100.
By: yogiman on 1/26/13 at 7:30
I feel so humiliated, dumba$$, to get beat by an idiot as ignorant as you.
Your own word says I am smarter than you, yogi.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/20/13 at 3:58

By: yogiman on 1/26/13 at 7:30
I feel so humiliated

That's the only lucid moment that idiot's had since posting here.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/20/13 at 4:00

Blanket she did spit and a snot was born.

By: bfra on 2/20/13 at 4:00

yogi's mama probably tried to get rid of him when she saw what she had "hatched", thus the damage to the blob that was supposed to be human, but was just that, "a blob". Totally ignorant blob!
