Up for Debate: Onslaught of core apartments?

Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at 12:38am

Are proposed plans to build more than 3,000 rental units in the next three years a good idea to encourage core development or simply overestimating Nashville's downtown convergence?

Anyone what to bet 10 bucks Cain drops OUT of the race?
Odds: by Friday.

The best thing this issue will create is jobs for the area.

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 5:38

dargent7,

Have you ever wondered why Cain is the only one receiving any "claims"? Your boy Barry doesn't want him as competition.

By: Loner on 11/29/11 at 5:41

Good morning, Nashville!

No comment on the topic of the day. I simply do not know.

My crystal balls predicted the Cain sex scandal....but they do not say if and when he will get out of the race. The man is totally delusional, he has just hired a famous libel lawyer...they will try to destroy the character and credibility of Ginger White, Cain's "traveling companion".

Ms. White has receipts etc. to back up her claims...action photos too? We shall see.

If Cain's wife still stands by this A-hole, she should get an Academy Award for her performance.

Budlight and Yogi were so hot for Cain....this must frost their cupcake.

By: Loner on 11/29/11 at 5:44

Cain would be the easiest candidate for Obama tp beat in the general election....I'm sure that his imminent demise is disappointing to Obama's team, but not unexpected....Obama would have mopped the floor with Mister Pepperoni.

Good luck with your surgery, Yogi.

By: dargent7 on 11/29/11 at 5:49

Yogi: Say what you will about "Barry", he never strayed from his wife, had no one ever say he harassed them, and looks to me like he cares about his 2 daughters.
A true family man.
Contrast that with your Republican slugs, Cain and Gingrich.
No way all 5 women are "liars". Even Tiger Woods gave it up when #10 surfaced.
Cain's a hound dog and if there's 1 or 2 more, he's toast, if not already.
As far as Gingrich, you want an adulterous "Family Values" pig in the W.H.?
Yes, Clinton was a dog too, but didn't parade around on the "Family Values" Republican (hypocritical) bandwagon.

L'ner: Saints! Brees and Rogers will go head to head in the 2012 SB.

By: Loner on 11/29/11 at 6:03

The Saints and the Packers are both NFC teams, as I recall...the SB is AFC champs vs NFC champs, right?

I see the NE Patriots as the AFC champs...N.O. or Green Bay will win the NFC championship, IMO.

By: Loner on 11/29/11 at 6:18

Seems like Mister Pepperoni likes the white ladies...just like Clarence Thomas, Tiger Woods...OJ Simpson and many other famous black men. Is there a racist element to their sexual conquests? Are these black guys self-hating Negroes, or are they bedroom black power advocates, screwing the bejesus out of some beezy white ho? Ms. White may let inquiring minds in on all the sleaze.....could be a book deal in there.

By: dargent7 on 11/29/11 at 6:18

Good point. Then Brees over Rogers their next match up.

By: Loner on 11/29/11 at 6:21

The NFC Championship Game may draw as many viewers as the SB, if it pits NO and Brees against GB and Rodgers.

But, when they are firing on all eight, nobody can beat the New England Patriots.

By: Loner on 11/29/11 at 7:01

Any bets on whether or not Cain has had a dose or two over the years? Let's get his pharmacist's records?...The guy wants to be POTUS...a BJ in the Oval Office is an Impeachable Offense....let's avoid another Clinton-Lewinsky affair, if we can.

Newt can't keep it in his pants either, with Viagra and other ED remedies out there, Newt could still be hosin' the ho's....the image of Newt, buck naked, with that double-chin and paunch is tough to take this early in the morning....still, some ho would do him, we know that....power is a babe magnet.

By: Loner on 11/29/11 at 7:03

I gotta run, folks....business to attend to...I'll check back later.

This Ms. White woman looks "Black".
Not a bleached blonde like Tiger Woods favored.

Apartments, Condos, Townhomes it doesn't matter as long as there
is not the pretense of "Affordable" housing that the Taxpayers subsidize
with tax breaks under false pretenses by developers! That has happened
on several projects downtown without protest from MDHA.

By: BenDover on 11/29/11 at 8:56

The condos have 'affordable' units that are discounted as part of the deal with the city to get the building permits. I'm sure the apartments will work similarly.

By: BenDover on 11/29/11 at 9:44

What about Vera Baker?

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 11:20

Where can I collect my money, dargent7?

Isn't it strange these women, all white, FINALLY decided to make their accusations long after Cain threw his hat in the ring? And I'll bet they are all democrats.

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 11:28

Loner,

With you guys claiming me to be against "Obama" because of his race, could I favor Cain because of his race? Y''all,s claims don't make much sense to me.

The surgery went pretty good. I can still see. Apparently cataract surgery isn't like it used to be.

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 11:36

dargent7,

I'm just wondering, do I really know more about Barry than you and your co-posters here? Is much of what I have read and heard about him lies? Was that "queer" lying about his ""relationship"" with Barry? Actually,only they know.

Does his wife actually know he has never "cheated" on her? Only he and his co-cheaters know.

But on the issue, one thing I do know: He isn't in that Oval Office legally.

Gotta go. Straining my eye a litlle too much.

In poker, that's know as a "tell"....

By: dargent7 on 11/29/11 at 12:43

Yeah, sure....Obama is a homosexual.
Rack that just ahead of Richard Gere put gerbils up his ass for a thrill. Like, "because Cindy Crawford didn't do it for me".
And Tom Cruise is also gay.
Rock Hudson, Ricky Martin, George Michael, and Michael Jackson were all gay.
Pee-Wee Herman was a close call.

The old ^art has been around all day and has not seen the doctor yet?

By: Captain Nemo on 11/29/11 at 12:48

That is queer that yogi would say that..Freudian Slip maybe.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/29/11 at 12:55

It is funny to watch yogi make prediction time and again, only to have the candidate fall stumble and bounce comically on the world stag. It is like a kiss of death from an old s8it face clown.

Cain is going down and could divorce court be far behind?

By: dargent7 on 11/29/11 at 12:59

"yogi": "My Reynolds stock just went thru the roof..."
Yes, him and the other tin foil hat wearers that can't get Obama on:
* "not born in the USA",
* didn't really go to college,
* isn't 100% black
* and not cheating on his wife (like 75% of all Republicans).
So, they feel comfortable in the sewer and come up with, "he's a known homosexual".
All the while their party's front runners are either adulterors, liars, hypocrites, nuts, or Mormons.
Good Luck!

By: Captain Nemo on 11/29/11 at 1:02

Being the narcissi, yogi is queer only to himself.

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 3:19

Well, I'm back for a minute, dargent7. So.. can you tell me why his grandmother said she was in the room with his mother when he was born, and she had never been out of her homeland? Can you explain why he told a group of students he was born in Kenya? Can you explain why his wife repeated (at least 3 times) why they went through Africa to visit his homeland of Kenya?

Can you explain why he did not lose his American citizenship (if he actually l had it) when he was adopted by his Indonesian stepfather?

Did they know one day he was going to be President of the USA and needed his citizenship.?

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 3:38

dargent7,

Before I take another break, may I ask another question? According to the "birth certificate" he "finally" showed, why was the file number two numbers higher than those of a pair of twin girls who were born two days after hiin born in the hospital he claims to be his birthplace? And when did African become a race as it showed his father's race?

All of the black people I knew in 1961 were known as Negroes.

By: Loner on 11/29/11 at 3:56

Just had our 4:20 observance....Kum Ba Yah....peace...love....dove. Can't we all just get a bong?

Obama pledged to free the medicine...now he's cracking down hard an CA's medical marijuana growers, dispensaries etc. He reneged on his promise...Obama is a reneger! He is needlessly alienating millions of Cannabis-friendly voters. But why?

What do Mitt and Newt have to say about state's rights, with respect to state laws governing medical marijuana?

Will they let each state decide the Cannabis issue, or do they favor continuing with the failed big government policies? Do they support the AG, Eric Holder, in his heavy-handed anti-medical-marijuana crusade?

I believe that Ron Paul has gone on record criticizing the current Cannabis situation. Mitt, or Newt could embarass Obama by appealing to his left on this issue. I don't know if the TP-GOP base is ready for that, however.

By: Magnum on 11/29/11 at 3:57

"Yes, Clinton was a dog too, but didn't parade around on the "Family Values" Republican (hypocritical) bandwagon."

So he just lied through his teeth...but at least he wasn't a hypocrite. A fine example of blind party loyalty. Just call a spade a spade...they're both dogs. One isn't less dog just because he's a democrat (or vice versa).

By: Captain Nemo on 11/29/11 at 4:20

Shut up yogi

By: BenDover on 11/29/11 at 4:23

Walked through the Occupy Nashville camp Sunday. The homeless co-op of the event looks to be up around 45% now.

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 4:26

Magnum,

Is a person now determined guilty until they prove themselves innocent? There has only been accusations against Herman Cain but no proof I have heard or read about.

Is he guilty because he's a republican? Looks like it, because Bill Clinton was innocent because he's a democrat.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/29/11 at 4:29

shut up you old fool. :-)

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 4:32

brrrrk,

Back in the good ole days, homosexuals were known as "queers". I understand how you young punks don't know the differences on the times of life. Being gay meant you was having a happy time with your friends.

Then y'all came into this world and changed out vocabulary.

By: yogiman on 11/29/11 at 4:34

dumba..,

Why don't you take that 'thing' out and play with it. I know you can't seem to do it with your brain.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/29/11 at 4:39

You are not my type old fogi, I like women. Not that there is anything wrong with being gay, however I would not like you gay, straight or being queer for ones on self like you…yogi. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 11/29/11 at 4:42

Narcissism and self-deception are survival mechanisms without which yogi might just jump off a bridge.

Got to go now good night people and you too old fogi.

By: Magnum on 11/29/11 at 5:30

Yogi, my guess is they're both guilty but that is beside the point (at least with regard to the point I was making). And to your point, politicians (both rep and dem) are indeed "guilty until proven innocent" when these types of allegations come forward because they are going before the court of public opinion...not a judiciary court. Something to do with smoke and fire.

Queer huh? Well geez yogi, why stop there..... lets start using kike, heeb, chink, wop, dago, heinee, jap, spic, etc.... Ah yes, the good ol' days.
