All Christians could be classified as insane people in need of being institutionalized under this.
I personally am in favor of that happening.
while this might be true, it’s still in Tennessee and you’re still subject to all the bullshit that accompanies living in Tennessee.
you can only say that if you’ve lived here. Otherwise you’re a racist POS imo. Also as a MTSU fan, glass houses and such.

Republican infighting escalates: MAGA wing takes aim at House Speaker Mike Johnson
Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at 2:19:39p CST
One day after House Speaker Mike Johnson passed a stopgap funding bill to avoid a government shutdown, right-wing Republicans tanked his spending bill—an opening salvo in the battle for retribution.
What has the MAGA wing of the GOP fuming? It was Democrats who rescued Johnson, providing 209 votes and a majority of the ayes needed to pass the short-term bill. It's precisely the type of maneuver that landed former Speaker Kevin McCarthy in hot water and eventually led to his ouster.
But the MAGA nuts aren't talking ejection just yet. After all, the House Republican conference flailed for over three weeks trying to find a leader they could agree on. So instead of ousting Johnson, they are planning to make his life a living hell. And of course, the country will be caught in the crossfire of the next GOP civil war.
Their first order of business has already been accomplished. About 20 Republicans voted with Democrats to block a Republican bill that would fund the Commerce and Justice departments from reaching the floor for debate. Beyond exacting revenge, the main sticking point for MAGA Republicans was the funding allotted for the Department of Justice and FBI, because MAGA Republicans are all about defunding the police now for daring to criminally charge Donald Trump.
Going forward, Johnson can expect a lot more retribution votes of this nature from his right flank.
“I think it gets bumpy from here on out. Anything and everything is on the table," GOP Rep. Andy Ogles of Tennessee told Politico.
Rep. Ralph Norman of South Carolina agreed.
“There is a sentiment that if we can’t fight anything, then let’s just hold up everything,” said the Freedom Caucus member, who has spoken with Johnson several times this week.
But Johnson will also have to contend with the 18 Republican moderates who represent districts Biden won in 2020. Given the way the conference is going, they aren't going to toe the party line on any messaging votes that will put them in jeopardy. Why should they? The MAGA gambit of ousting McCarthy followed by nearly a month of sheer chaos has already jeopardized their reelection chances.
In fact, Politico reports that House GOP moderates are already eyeing a scenario where they break bread with Democrats to pass a series of funding bills as MAGA Republicans seek to jam consideration of any bill.
“It just forces us to work with Democrats — these guys play checkers, they don’t play chess,” GOP Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska said of the MAGA wing.
For now Johnson has gained a bit of breathing room, partly because he's too new to leadership to be weighed down by bad blood left over from previous battles.
But the storm will come for Johnson eventually—likely early next year as he faces the impending expiration of the stopgap funding bill.
One way or another, the new speaker will forge mortal enemies, whether it's among the MAGA misfits or the GOP centrists. Johnson will have to choose. McCarthy chose the centrists one too many times and the MAGA wing finally served him his eviction notice.
If Johnson chooses the MAGA wing, the Republican centrists just might let Johnson keep his speakership while forming some sort of alliance with Democrats. And that could get interesting.
Republicans are challenging labor leaders to fights and allegedly physically assaulting one another. Donald Trump says he will abolish reproductive rights entirely and is openly calling for the extermination of his detractors, referring to them as “vermin” on Veterans Day. The Republican Party has emerged from its corruption cocoon as a full-blown fascist movement.
I would love to see Candy Owens reaction when she finds out where the name Nazi comes from.

Pretty pathetic that Sarah can’t find a single Walton heir to be her friend and foot the ball for this kind of stuff.
That’s why you haven’t seen me defend Murfreesboro.
Currently listening to a podcast on a judge in Rutherford County.
Cliffs: this judge had kids jailed for bullshit reasons for decades
Awful stuff by a bunch of awful people.
It’s actually the building right next to their HQ. Kroger needed more parking, so it was part of a development that put an 18 story building with a parking garage and grocery next to it, then condos on top.
It’s the first large grocery in the central business district since the last one moved out in 1969.
It also serves the OTR area, which is a lot of late 1800’s architecture that has undergone a gentrification wave.

The Economist names Trump "biggest danger" for 2024
The Economist says former President Trump presents the world's "biggest danger" in 2024.
Why it matters: The respected 180-year-old British newspaper said a "second Trump term would be a watershed in a way the first was not" and the "fate of the world" will depend on the ballots of "tens of thousands of voters in just a handful of states" in the 2024 presidential election.
Details: The Economist said in its annual "World Ahead" guide Thursday that another four years of Trump in the White House would be "more damaging" than his previous term.
"China and its friends would rejoice over the evidence that American democracy is dysfunctional" and Beijing "could easily miscalculate over Taiwan, with catastrophic consequences."
And Russian President Vladimir Putin "would have an incentive to fight on in Ukraine and to pick off former Soviet countries such as Moldova or the Baltic states," according to the newspaper.
Of note: The "greatest threat" Trump poses "is to his own country," the Economist argues. The "moral authority" of the U.S. would decline "because America will have voted him in while knowing the worst."
While "pursuing his enemies," Trump "will wage war on any institution that stands in his way, including the courts and the Department of Justice," the Economist said.
The big picture: The former president, who faces 91 criminal charges across four separate jurisdictions, has repeatedly made unsubstantiated claims trying to tie the prosecutors and others to Biden.
He has called the proceedings against him a "witch-hunt" and political persecution.
Trump is polling far ahead of any of his GOP competitors and has even gotten a little boost following indictments in four separate jurisdictions.
Zoom in: A New York Times poll out this month had Trump beating Biden in five of the six swing states Biden won in 2020.
Only 37% of voters in the poll trust Biden on the economy, compared to 59% for 2024 Republican front-runner Trump, who has dominated recent polls.
Representatives for Trump did not immediately respond to Axios' requests for comment.
Go deeper: Trump's "vermin" speech again draws scrutiny to extreme rhetoric
I know he's getting old, but goddamn this interesting.
My hatred of Memphis has nothing to do with the people, other than people who are both Tiger basketball fans and UTK football fans, and more to do with the layout of the city, the roads, and the BBQ.
damn he looks good
i really enjoyed this. i feel like i could listen to him talk for hours. feels like i'm listening to my grand dad tell old war stories
I hope he is found guilty and =======
I was being a little tongue in cheek but I do bristle when people from other parts of Tennessee criticize Memphis. Yes it’s a shithole but largely because of the rest of Tennessee cutting us off at the knees every chance they get.
I don’t disagree, but I grew up in west Tennessee and have spent a ton of time there. You’ll get no argument from me that many Tennesseans dislike Memphis for racist reasons, especially the governor and the general assembly. I’ve been on calls that have verified their disdain for Memphis (not Shelby county, just Memphis). They hate Nashville too though.
Trump and Aides Immediately Attack Clerk After Gag Order Is Paused
Who could have known? I'm so surprised he behaved like that
I'm shocked he once again is attacking a woman to deflect from his own issues.
