Good morning, Nashville.

Trouble in paradise?

Let 'em eat cake....and wear their coonskin caps....Tennessee's state government has provided plenty of material for the nation's late night comedians.

Slackjawed rubes, Jesus freaks, racists, homophobes, generalized haters and gun worshipers rule the Volunteer State....maybe these grandstanding knuckleheads will open fire on each other?

May the troubled Tennessee Tea-baggers go out in a blaze of glory....Yeeee Haaaww!

To answer the question: How would you grade the work of the Tennessee GOP supermajorities this last legislative session?, let me award the TN legislature an "A", for being Asinine....it is perhaps the most asinine state government in the union of American states.....and the masses elect and re-elect these asses, in the great state of Tennessee.

What grade would you give your NY State legislature? Surely not an A+. And just think, also, y'all put your man in office. Didn't anyone up there know anything about him after his father? You know; Like father, like son.

Love the in-fighting, it brings out the best in them.

I do not support Son-of-Cuomo...I detest royal family types of democracy....the banana republic idea.

I would give the NYS Legislature a grade of D+.....it would be lower, but they did pass a tough new gun law....that's about all that I can say for them...we too have the liquor store lobby holding the legislature hostage....no wines in grocery stores here either....as for Cannabis reform, New York is still in the Dark Ages.....and the Governor is not anti-fracking.....Cuomo Junior has his sights set on the White House in 2016....the mob loves that guy....he has a wide sleaze streak.

When the idiots break away from the A-holes, we call that "infighting"?

No honey bees around...but who cares about those insects?

What gun law did they pass that isn't in conflict with the Constitution?

By: yogiman on 5/3/13 at 12:05

I hate to tell you this, dargent7, but if we didn't have honey bees, you wouldn't have any honey: That is, except for your 'sweetheart'.

You also wouldn't get the same quality food you're getting by the honey bees "feeding" the fruits and vegetables.

Just send yours to Tennessee.

There is no in-fighting, just a liberal paper telling lies.

The Dems with Chippie Forrester are a model of cooperation, right?

I HATE liberals. Every dang one of them.

By: pswindle on 5/3/13 at 1:30

Well, you hate a lot. Your heart is full if hate and there is no cure for that. I am so sad for you.

jug - Who is Chippie Forrester, 1 of your dolls?

I don't find the infighting any rougher in the Republican Party of the State than
it is in the ever decreasing, dysfunctional, and leaderless Democratic Party.
Heck, even many of theTN Democratic party's top state donor now divide their
donations about even between the two candidates for Gov and Senators.
Most of the State's Press is still Democratic and are perplexed that the citizens
are voting the way they are as well as buying fewer papers. The persuasive
writings of Mike Burch and postings by pswindle and Loner may turn it around
for this desperate and struggling cause.

With the weather too lousy to go out in the back yard to play you might want to see a good movie.

A good show proving I'm lying, bfra. Enjoy.


By: Libertine on 5/5/13 at 9:07

Why would you rate the ridiculous new gun laws passed in New York as a positive?

By: bfra on 5/5/13 at 10:29

yogi you don't have to "prove" you are lying, everybody knows that from the 1st comment you put on the board.

By: yogiman on 5/5/13 at 6:33

Well, I guess I lied on the above post, bfra. I put a 'm' where it should have been an 'n' in conservatives.

Try it, it's a good show but you might not like it.

yogi - I repeat: I don't have to watch a show to prove you are lying!
