• I agree. I hope the folks over at Daily(dont say nothin bad about Obama)Kos are happy with the bouncing baby boy they have protected.

  • I agree wholeheartedly about it ceasing to be legitimate. How do you deal with an illegitimate government? Can a government be shunned? Take a play from the Amish playbook. They would never see it coming!

    I live near Maury county, TN. Mr. Smith is lucky that he escaped that meeting without getting his ass thoroughly whipped. And that is a shame. His sotto voce threat to these people was basically that they should just STFU, or face the consequences of a bought out government’s ire. I would like to know [...]

    One can only hope that these Drug Warriors find themselves smacked up beside the head by karma, and find that they NEED the healing efficacy of this beautiful plant. Holder, Obama, all these DOJ officials who think they are such hot shit. Cosmic justice will out, and we will have no sympathy for you, as [...]

  • Ok, I do not want to sound Teapartyish, but I believe TJ himself,in 1776, described the situation in which we now find ourselves, and pointed out the remedy.
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    I believe we are getting to this point. When all three branches of government are complicit, there is no where else to go.

  • Rep. Cohen is not new to this issue, he sponsored Medical Marijuana bills while in the Tennessee legislature. He has been a fighter for us underdogs all of his political career. He has never in my recollection been afraid to speak truth to power.
    Although the South is known for crackpot crazy conservatives, there are some progressive voices crying in our wilderness. Thank heavens for Steve Cohen, although he is from Memphis, not my district, I think of him as my congressman, instead of that twit, Diane Black.

  • Sad, the soul lost is that of the USA.

  • Oh, kids, its, ok, daddy just got killed by a remotely piloted aircraft, aRPC. Go back to sleep it weren’t no drone. Pigs, lipstick. Misdirection. Propaganda.
    Do these drones seriously believe what they say, as they drone on.

  • As my mother once told me, if you don’t do things you are ashamed of, there is no need to hide them. Seems that might be a good rule of thumb for government as well as individuals.

  • A painting, naah. Now if they could come up with a photograph of Jesus, they might have something!

    My family has a similar tradition, except we play “Christmas eve gift”. However, I cannot recall ever collecting a gift for winning.

    there’s enough redneck in me that I really hope these cops pull over the wrong people some day…with all that entails. The state of texas, their bible quotin governor will not do anything about it. These cops need some frontier type justice. Other posters are correct, tho, it just isnt texas, it happens all over, [...]

  • Newtown, Tn, is back in the sticks. Back where the hoot owls fuck the chickens. It is not known as an intellectual center, by any means. Morris is an insignificant preacher, in an insignificant church, in a backwater town.
    I am sure he is thanking his screwed up version of god that his great confession of ignorance has now made national and international headlines.

  • Oh, we have some loony tunes preachers down here in Tennessee. Thats probably why the founding fathers included this in the state constitution: “Whereas Ministers of the Gospel are by their profession, dedicated to God and the care of souls, and ought not to be diverted from the great duties of their functions; therefore, no Minister of the Gospel, or priest of any denomination whatever, shall be eligible to a seat in either House of the Legislature.”

    I think the idea was to keep them out of the public discussion of things. Wow, those founders were wise!

  • It would be interesting to see if youth turnout increases more with legalization initiatives than with medicinal MJ initiatives. It seems on the face of it that younger voters are not satisfied with halfway measures, as have the older generation.

    Re police chief in Flint Mich. Perhaps the city should calculate how much time and effort is being spent by the chief and dept enforcing federal law, then deduct this amount from pay and appropriations.

    Or, just fire the SOB

  • The corn prices quoted above are a bit deceptive, on the low side. These prices reflect the price for bulk purchases, futures and etc. Yesterday I stopped by my local farm store and the price there for shelled corn is 11.50 per 50# bag. A bushel weighs 56 pounds, so that would put the per bushel price on the retail level somewhere around 12.50 per bushel(rough math!). It is bit of a kick in the gut to us small livestock producers. Coupled with the drought it is a one-two punch that is forcing many smaller farmers out of business, leaving the corporate farming types more in control. What could possibly go wrong with this scenario!
