The Lock Down Possibility

Now that I have arrived back in White Pine (although I have to return to Nashville on Saturday for a day-long Knights of Columbus mid-year meeting) after the Day of Infamy at the Legislature, the magnitude of what has occurred is really beginning to sink in.

I must sadly say that the events of this past week has dealt a severe blow to what ability I might have had to trust a Democrat-any Democrat. I watched as even those people who I thought were honorable went along with such a dishonorable, decietful, and despicable act. I suspect that a lot of Republicans in the General Assembly feel the same way. None of them can trust a single person in the Democratic Caucus on their honor. Democrats in Nashville, it would seem, have no morals, faith, or fear. I am not even sure that I trust the ones who I thought were friendly anymore, on a personal level.

This lack of trust will likely impact business in the General Assembly. If the Democrats had delayed the vote on constitutional officers any longer, there was serious talk among Republicans of sending the General Assembly into "lock down," refusing to allow adjornment until the Joint Convention met, which the GOP has more than enough numbers in both Houses to do.

Do not be surprised if there is a serious threat of lock-down before this session-now officially underway-is complete.

Well Dave, there are a few good pro-life Democrats out there still. No, they're not politicians; but, they do in fat exist. Let me remind you that there are many Republicans I myself would not trust, (Bush among them). The filthy ritch Rockafeller oil Republicans who hate us conservatives have had their way for far too long now; and this, I fear, explains much of what you witnessed on the floor of the Tennessee legislature. Had those Republicans been truly honorable, what you saw would not have happened. for how many years now have I been trying to tell you that it's high time to abandon the Republican party and form a pro-life conservative party for this country?

You don't trust a Democrat? Give me a break. The entirety of your blog is given to hate-filled rants about anything and everything Democratic. Someone says they are pro-choice and you screech that they are baby-killers or "pro-death". Mention that they anti-death penalty and you call them criminal lovers. If they say that they are concerned about global warming, you accuse them of being stupid and reactionary.

You are the living epitomy of everything that is wrong with the Republican party these days. You have abandoned science for ideology. You want to force your religious beliefs on everyone around you. You worship your Republican leaders until they inevitably screw up and then you say "conservatism didn't fail, they failed conservatism." Face it, the Republican party has nothing left but fear and people are waking up to that.

I've read your screeds and you certainly belong with the Republicans. Enjoy the ride down the toilet with a sinking ideology!

Dave, pay no heed to what that fellow posting as "Anonymous" says. The reason he's posting as "Anonymous" is just so he can spew his unbridled hatred at you. I have seen very many a time when Dave has put up here that there are good Democrats. He sings their praises when possible, (allbeit not very often), and condemns their failed socialist policies when necessary, (allbeit frequently). From whom, I ask you, doth the hatred spew? Anonymous of course.

Wait a second, if you are posting as "Anonymous" and I'm posting as "Anonymous" how will we know which person is spewing unbridled hatred at Dave? I propose that you look at Anonymous' postings and point out the "unbridled hatred", post it under your real name and then I can direct my "unbridled hatred" at you. Saay something good about your glorious leader "W" if you really want to get me going!

"Democrats in Nashville, it would seem, have no morals, faith, or fear. I am not even sure that I trust the ones who I thought were friendly anymore, on a personal level."

Would you clarify that remark?

It seems to me that Sharon has a good point Dave. As I indicated to you before, there are indeed some good Democrats who are pro-life. Some of my very dearest and closest friends are Democrats; and, were they to die, I would grieve their loss bitterly!!!

Now, as for my name, well, if the "Anonymous" fellow who was spewing his unbridled hatred at you would bother to look closely enough, he would observe that I did give my real name. But, for his benefit; since he can't be bothered, my name is Ray. So there!!!

What part of "Over playing your hand" do you not understand? If the GOP'ers "lock down" Nashville all the Dem have to do is point out how childishand unfit TN GOP leadership really is.
If I were Williams and the Dems I'd call the GOP'ers bluff, purpose some popular legislation and DARE the GOP'ers to lock down Nashville.
The thing is, David, is the GOP'ers overplayed a one vote majority, measured the drapes before the final vote and basically conducted themselvbes like a bunch of rookie amuaters. Again, if I were Williams and the Dems I'd let you all contiue to act like that and I'd publically call you an on it each and every time it happened.
Finally, let me ask if you have any cheese to go with that whine? If not try:
and there's lots of other places, too.

You're a whiny little bitch and apparently not very intelligent. I wasn't responding to you - I was responding to "Anonymous". But you see my problem here, you have no idea which "Anonymous" is spewing hatred towards you right now. You've just "f"ed everything up.
