In redeveloping the James A. Cayce homes, could refurbishing suffice or is rebuilding the only logical way to go?

Ben - Being the sissy, selfish, cheap-o that he portrays himself to be, has another stupid idea of how to treat people.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/21/13 at 11:31

Ben there are good descent people that live in theses places. What is taking place now is that the bad guys or being tossed out and only the hardworking and honest people live in the newer homes.

By: BenDover on 2/21/13 at 11:41

I said let the good people out and give them a house, Nemo.

We'll let Snake Plissken deal with the others.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/21/13 at 11:50

This is what they are doing with this project Ben. They are removing an eyesore and bring a new hope for people. The one bad thing about this is that the displaced bad guys are moving into other parts of town city that did not have a problem.

Just mailed a chunky check for fed income taxes. Good grief; 15% for self employment. The gov'ment should reward people who have the "gumption" to be self-employed and stay off the dole. My husband was told in '97 that he qualified for "disability". He was 40 and had fallen 22' on to a concrete floor. Broken arm; pelvis; pubic bone; transverse process; stabbed with metal cutting shears; and closed head injury. Talk about a candidate for ptsd. BUT he rose above it and is still employed, albeit not by a company with benefits. He is self employed; works like a dog and his benefit is that we get to eat, have a roof over our heads and a car (truck) to drive. So to me, uncle sammie should reward people like us - not punish us with high taxes and uncertainity.

Oh well, wishful thinking. Got to get to Y and errands. Dryer broken; lugging laundry to laundrymat; very nice one in LaVergne; has games, jukebox and tv, plus owner from Egypt keeps it very clean. By the way, no sympathy please - just a heads up: surgery is March 4. Prayers welcome.

See.... responding to yogi is easy. You just have to find the right word....

By: bfra on 2/21/13 at 12:13

I don't understand why a reputable newspaper continues to let false & vendictive comments be shown on this board, everyday 24/7.

By: bfra on 2/21/13 at 12:15

brrrrk - You also have the "only" word to describe what IT puts on the board.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/21/13 at 12:22

There are no words for yogi. He doesn't have brains to process a word.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/21/13 at 12:27

I know that you have forgotten already yogi, so here is a reminder.

By: yogiman on 1/26/13 at 3:13dumba$$, 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: slacker on 2/21/13 at 12:38

Ben, I believe Snake Plissken is in Aspen skiing with Goldie.

By: bfra on 2/21/13 at 12:40

slacker - Ben is busy stroking his mini 14 to get his jollies!

By: BigPapa on 2/21/13 at 12:42

you guys always get so side track with such crazed BS trollism... you take the bait. Every. Day.

When it comes to city planning it would APPEAR that the best thing to do with sec.8 housing would be to scatter it throughout the city. However, that doesnt appear to work.

Human behavior being what it is, the best policy is a cynical one. You pick an area of town and you put all the shelters, sec,8 housing, drug rehabs etc.. and you just write it off as a loss.
Yes those schools will be terrible, Yes you will spend 75% of your police efforts in this area, and Yes it will be dangerous.. BUT at least you know where the trouble is and its contained.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/21/13 at 12:51

BigPapa, I totally understand that sentiment however at least there's a better chance for the kids to better themselves if it's not concentrated in one area. At least that's one advantage.

By: Loner on 2/21/13 at 12:55

If Abe Lincoln had just let the South go its own way, none of these problems with unwanted, former slaves would have arisen....there were no "public housing" tracts on the drawing boards in the confederacy....African Negroes were looked upon as valuable property, back then..but .now, housing, feeding, educating and entertaining the idle work force is burdensome to Southern governments.....and these ghettos are hell-holes of crime....the fallout from the old plantation system is still bedeviling the South....and it will for decades to come....the good old days lasted for hundreds of years....the payback is hell.

By: BigPapa on 2/21/13 at 12:56

You are assuming they "better themselves"or even have a goal to do so. They could just as easily, and more than likely, worsen the schools and neighborhoods where they move.

By: bfra on 2/21/13 at 1:08

Loner - Hate to disagree but IMO slave days, Abe Lincoln or the civil was has nothing to do with the Topic of today.

By: BigPapa on 2/21/13 at 1:10

Loner just flames... it's burdensome to not just Southern government, it's all governments.

By: bfra on 2/21/13 at 1:16

s/h/b - "civil war"

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/21/13 at 1:25

BigPapa, there's a better probability that they will if they're in a better environment. The world will always have lazy, worthless losers but there will also be those kids who will want something better.

By: dargent7 on 2/21/13 at 1:35

Ok, yogi, for sake of argument, Obama is a lying sack of sh!t.
What about Reagan on Iran Contra or G HW Bush on Desert Storm? "It'n ot about oil, it's naked agression".
Then jr. really goes balls to the wall withstealing the 20000 election, then HIS invasion of Iraq: Iraqi Freedom, Desert Shield, Desert Fox....all based on 100% false intel.
Cheney knew it was b.s., Rice, Wolfowitz, Bremmer all knew. This "CIA intel" was 8th grade stuff, maybe 6th.
Powell had the only moral compass but sold out for his job. Then quit.
Obama may be from Kenya, a college drop-out, never taught, all his degrees are fake and forged, but America "likes" him. He WON. TWICE.
He won't be impeached.
You find yourself someone in the Republican Party who can beat any Democrat based on principles,...not birth certificates or college transcripts.

By: Loner on 2/21/13 at 1:48

Slave days had nothing to do with the issue? Where did all those black folks come from? I suppose that they paid for passage on an ocean-liner and sailed here, from West Africa, voluntarily...is that the new narrative?

Southern black poverty today and slavery, the Civil War and Abe Lincoln are totally unrelated, you say?

Yeah, your educational system sucks.

By: yogiman on 2/21/13 at 1:51

Speak for yourself, brrrrk.

I wish I was as brilliant as you silly six think you are. Hell, I'd be smarter than Barry Soetoro.

By: slacker on 2/21/13 at 1:54

Hey nazi.. Cadillac Records is on tonite at 7pm on Bet channel.

By: Loner on 2/21/13 at 2:00

Hey, Darge!

Let's review the Bush Dynasty's record with race relations.....Bush's daddy appointed Clarence (Uncle) Thomas and then the SCOTUS anointed Junior with the POTUS job by a 1-vote margin....Clarence repaid the favor....then Condi Rice was selected as the up-dated, sexed-up Aunt Jemima figure....Colin Powell rounded out the token trio....all working on the Bush plantation....Powell carrying water to the UN for his Texan masters....now, Thomas broods and gets paid to do so....and Condi Rice is on the lecture circuit, set for life....they had their minds right, boss....the GOP points to them as role models for blacks.

By: yogiman on 2/21/13 at 2:03

brrrrk,

I hate to tell you this, but the vulgarity you people use on a daily basis on this site tells what kind of people you truly are.

Can't you even use hyphenation in you vulgarity to "ease it" a little?

By: bfra on 2/21/13 at 2:10

brrrrk - From ole potty mouth himself at 2:03PM. LMAO at the hypocrite!

By: yogiman on 2/21/13 at 2:14

The difference between Barry and the others, dargent7, is they were natural born citizens in office legally. Barry isn't. And for you to say "so what?" puts you in the same category with him. The Constitution our founders wrote for us apparently doesn't mean any more to you than it does to Barry.

But as I've mentioned before, he's the least of our worry. Our biggest worry is a congress that allows a known unconstitutionally eligible man usurp that office.

yogi, why don't you consider posting on another thread .. one that would appreciate your contributions?

By: dargent7 on 2/21/13 at 2:38

"Another thread..." for "yogi"?
Hands down, The Tennessean. Right here in town, too.
90% of the posters are racist gun toting, backwards hillbillies.
He'd fit in nicely. No birth cert, college records, GED, geneology required.
If you sound "white", ie., hate Obama's guts, you're the "in-crowd".
And several DUI's, gun violations, and Domestic violence charges would give him a seat at the front table.

No you are not yogi. You are not as smart as me.

Here's a bumper sticker for yogi

Maybe they can "italianize" it for him.

The old fool would be lost in that bunch. Here he is a star.

Here's another tragic gun-related tragedy...this time it's gangstas in Vegas....innocent people burned alive:

http://discussions.latimes.com/20/lanews/la-na-nn-vegas-gun-battle-range-rover-20130221/10

The perps got away...for now, anyway.

Is the media focusing on this and magnifying the problem? Or is this country descending into gun-related mass hysteria?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/21/13 at 3:05

Interlectuels R yogi.

How long does it take yogi to figure out how to change a ligh bub in a locked closet with no electricity?

By: Loner on 2/21/13 at 3:12

Brrrrk, I'm no expert in feces, but troll droppings and the excrement of balls-on bovine males are two different items....bovine manure fertilizes, but draws flies...troll droppings are toxic, but draw the attention of online posters.

As Ben Dover might say, bovine manure has "added value"....troll droppings devalue a website.

By: Loner on 2/21/13 at 3:17

Nemo has a point, here, the troll is a star....he's like a lightning rod.....shorts everything out....all the energy goes to ground....lots of heat, but no light results.

By: Loner on 2/21/13 at 3:20

It's 4:20 here....oh yeah.

By: BenDover on 2/21/13 at 3:30

I too think that the works of yogi deserve a forum of their own... untarnished by his critics and their flippant disregard for conspiracy and the enemy within.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/21/13 at 3:39

I have been enjoying the duel between yogi and Rasputin, to who can be the biggest jerk. So far they have been equal in their moronic post. With the magnitude of yogi posts to get our attention and Raspy in his long winded bellow for our attention.

By: Loner on 2/21/13 at 3:39

Yeah, Ben... Yogi's Tin-Foil Manifesto... might sell on the Christian radio.... give him a one-hour, call-in, talk show...he's probably got the perfect voice for articulating the Tea-Bagger agenda....the slackjawed Southern drawl is very popular on the Christian radio these days....dovetails in nicely with the 2nd-amendment-loving and Washington-hating rhetoric...the old Southern Discomfort....the same old solution offered: Git yer gun!

By: Captain Nemo on 2/21/13 at 3:45

How do we know the Tin-Foil Manifesto is yogi’s The old goat has been known to steal from others and claim it to be his thoughts?

The pictures of the street gun fight in Las Vegas... a black Range Rover sprayed bullets at a Maserati at a Stop light.
Maserati slams into a cab, 3 dead. They said the cab was "hydrogen driven". What?
The big thing here is the NY Times road trip reporter slamming the Tesla S, Motor Trends, "Car of the Year".
It's built in Fremont and costs $100,000.+ -.
15,000 people have deposits...want to build 400 a week, up from 200 to break even.
Sounds like another DeLorean to me.
And Musk doesn't have a Hollywood wife.
