Confronting Lamar--It's NOT TOO LATE!!

Listening to the various sides of the issues and the name calling by Lamar Alexander makes me sick. It is so easy to turn his arguments on their head and prevail.


Mr. Ball is just another vote for Obama is a little misleading. Perhaps Lamar should state that his votes against Obama, and for legislation passed in the House is contrary to everything this country stands on. How many Tea Party initiatives have been passed multiple times only to be halted in the Senate because…

Ball wants NRA validation over intelligent endorsemants

I just heard on NPR in Nashville that candidate Gordon Ball challenged Lamar Alexander. His gun versus Alexander's piano playing. I think Gordon needs to calm down and listen to a little Bach (played on piano). He might find that he's able to think more effectively and speak more intelligently!

Fight Back - Vote!

We’re preachin’ to the choir asking you to fight back with your votes.  If you are reading this page you are likely a loyal Democrat committed to voting.  You are aware of the dismally low number of Democrats who voted in the August 7th election which cost us dearly when some of the best-qualified candidates were defeated simply because too many Democrats stayed home.  In Cumberland County, the Republicans and the Tea Party have created a climate where we feel more outnumbered than we really…

A Message to all Cumberland County Democrats from Dennis Gregg, Chair

Dear fellow Democrats,

There is little to celebrate from the August 7th election. Only one Democrat won a contested race, Ron Thurman, and that was because his opponent was so ill-equipped that even Republican leaders campaigned against him. In contest after contest, more experienced, better qualified Democratic candidates with proven track records were passed over in favor of men with "R" after their name. In the non-partisan county commission and school board races better decisions…

TN Democrats Embarrased by National News--Again

Here is part of what USA Today is reporting regarding the winner of the Democratic primary race for governor:

". . . Charlie Brown has reported raising no money for his campaign, and he has not responded to interview requests.

The only sign of a campaign has been a Facebook page on which his first name is misspelled. That page had 29 likes before Wednesday evening, as well as a few unanswered questions from voters. Its dominant feature is a profile photo of him proudly…

GOP House pushes lawsuit against Obama

Machiavelli is alive and well in the Republican Party.


Where the ascendent Democrats in the Congress should have taken matters seriously in 2009, they would have moved to press for war crimes proceedings against George W. Bush. During his Presidency, George W. issued a great deal more executive orders than Obama has, and for issues bearing on personal liberties and freedoms.  It is amazing the GOP blocked any sort of investigation into Katrina failings, and promised (ha ha)…

What? You aren't going to vote!

Hey, neighbor. So, you are fed up with the goings-on in Washington DC, and you don’t think you will ever bother to vote again. Or, you don’t want to vote anymore because there is one particular issue that you have strong feelings about and believe the Federal government is doing you wrong. Seriously?

Let me ask you this. What do you think Washington DC has to do with the local, district, county and state officials and public servants who actually have an effect on your state, your…
