When I worked for a company making deliveries many years ago in North Nashville, I discovered that it was a jewel waiting to be discovered. Sure, parts were run-down and looking for someone to care, but there were other parts that shined — neighborhoods where you could see that the people lived with pride in their community.

I believe the rediscovery of North Nashville is due to the revitalization of Historic Germantown. From there came the Bicentennial Mall, Farmers Market and Hope Gardens. Now there is a march along Jefferson Street and I think a new glory day for North Nashville is only a matter of time.

Maybe there will come a day that Nashville will not be divided by color or culture.

Congrats nemo!

Nishville will always be a "house divided". If not by color or culture, then by political sides.
Ever try to have a rational discussion with a Red State Republican on global warming?
Or Obama?

By: budlight on 4/19/11 at 7:18

As long as there are 2 people left on the planet, there will be divisivness of some type.

By: yogiman on 4/19/11 at 7:24

I agree, dargent7,

Its like trying to have such a discussion with a Blue State Democrat.

By: yogiman on 4/19/11 at 7:25

Now, do you want to discuss the subject of Obama?

By: Captain Nemo on 4/19/11 at 7:27

Shut up yogi

By: Captain Nemo on 4/19/11 at 7:33

Thank you friends for the nice words today.

North Nashville is a nice place and there are many good people that live there. It is part of the old city, which had sidewalks that made moving about the neighborhood easy. Not like the in the suburbs where there are no sidewalks and walking on the streets one is in danger of being ran over by cars.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/19/11 at 7:34

Obama is a better natural born American than yogi.

Joelton is wide open and offers expansion and all sorts of promise for future corporate expansion and new development, but the residents fight it each and every time. It is well known in the business community for being "unfriendly" and too costly.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/19/11 at 8:13

You have got that right girliegirl. They have even got a little rumor that the KKK has a hidden branch in the community. No one knows who they are and everyone suspects the other has being a member. ;-)

By: yogiman on 4/19/11 at 8:48


You keep proving my point day after day as to how damn stupid you actually are.

I was amazed at the well written post you made to get posted here, yet you can't write a sentence to understand without interpreting it after several readings.

And Obama is a more natural born citizen that I? dumba.., you are simply proving your ignorance more. Are you from Kenya, also, and just want to celebrate your counterpart?

By: Captain Nemo on 4/19/11 at 9:20

The only point you got yogi is your head.

By: yogiman on 4/19/11 at 9:37

True, dumba..,

And its a lot sharper than yours.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/19/11 at 9:47

How would you know yogi, you are not that smart. LOL

By: yogiman on 4/19/11 at 11:57

I know, dumba.., but then, I don't have to be very bright to be smarter than you.

Yogi: It's a "Blue Dog" Democrat.

Yogi: If Obama was born in Hawai'i as his B.C./ Notification states, plus the birth announcement in the daily Honolulu paper ran, he was BORN THERE. Cert of Live Birth whatever it is you maniacs require, it was Hawai'i in 1961, and only a ratified sate since 1958. Maybe they didn't have all the mainland paperwork aligned correctly. Maybe King Kamahameha took the day off. Maybe Queen Liliokalani was on vacation. It's irelevant where his father/ or mother was from/ or born.
He was born on US soil, and that's the litmus test.
Why don't you try getting "Arnold" exempt and have him run for President?

By: yogiman on 4/19/11 at 1:41


Are you stating because he was born on American soil he was qualified to run for the office?

Then would it be that all illegal aliens coming here to have babies would automatically make them eligible to hold that office?

Sorry, dargent7, but the best citizenship he could hold at that time would have been dual-citizenship with a Kenyan father.

I don't know what school/s you went to, but that book they taught you in civics was not the US Constitution if it taught you a dual citizen could be the American President.

By: yogiman on 4/19/11 at 2:04


The BS/Notification you mentioned was a Certification of Live Birth. Anyone would get a copy of that form back in 1961.

Facts are facts. I see copies of "long form" birth certificates of a woman who had twins the day after Obama claims he was born, but the numerical number on his "certificate" was a later number than the ones placed on the twin's certificates. Can you explain why he would show a higher number?

His Certification of Live Birth simply shows the date and time of his birth, his mother's maiden name and her race as Caucasian, and his fathers name and his race as African. May I ask; when did African become a race? I was taught it in grammar school it was a continent. You know, like North America, Central America and South America and the other continents of the world.

Because there is different races on the continent of Africa, are they all considered African as their race?

Dumba...Dumba....Dumba...the invectives are pumped out like shells being fired from a semi-automatic, 12-gauge shotgun.

And this thread started out so nice and gentle; until this post started things rolling:

By: Captain Nemo on 4/19/11 at 8:27

Shut up yogi

It quickly went from Kum-By-Yah to Dumba...Dumba....Dumba...kind of like the world in general, I suppose....the veneer of civilization is thin.

By: yogiman on 4/19/11 at 6:51


May I refresh your memory? Who began this "conflict" between dumba.. and I?

Go back a short way in you memory of time, when I found and began posting on this site.

Then the person known as "Captain Nemo" began posting continuous negative comments toward me. For what reason, I have not been able to figure out. Being the man I am, I began returning comments to said person but it seems like it offended said person because said person was personally insulted, in said person's mind.

At one point, being criticized for my efforts of equality applications by others on this site, I offered to not post negative comments toward said person if said person would stop the negative comments said person was posting.

Well, it took place for a few short days and then BLAM!, here they come again, so I'm right back in the middle of the pond.

If you will factually note, said person is always the first person to post their negative remarks toward me and I am always the last.

I'm simply not going to stand still and let some one slap me for no legitimate reason and not slap back.. harder.

Glenn Beck just said on the radio: "If you're on the Obama Campaign, you want to use the song "Born in the USA".... just to make things fun. LOL
