The Official Community for Tennessee's Democrats
In life, you realize that there are people who care deeply about one another, and there are those who are in it for their own gain. I am a Democrat because I care deeply about my fellow citizens, and that's something I believe in wholeheartedly. I grew up in a Republican household where I was taught that a Democrat was a person who was against every American…Continue

Before I get started, I wish to share this, I am a Independent and along with my friends we helped bring Obama into Office. Our little band of 1200 now stands against Obama as well as Republicans in Office with one goal in mind, to vote out all and just start over...
For all so long I entered web site and protected President Obama, as well as Bush, I will never trust in this Government Again....
You know I have posted many things to day, and it all stands on one thing,…Continue

What a surprise it was to me to learn that US Congressional District 6 Representative, Diane Black, is not aware of how our government works. When I read Ms. Black’s statement after the House of Representatives voted to end the government shutdown and raise the debt limit I was appalled to read her words, “…Unfortunately, the bill that came before the House tonight would give the President a blank check to continue Washington’s reckless spending….”
The President does not…Continue

I live in the Sixth Congressional District represented by Diane Black--a strong advocate for the Tea Party agenda. To say I am stuck is an understatement but then, when considering that of the approximately 690,000 residents of this district that she is supposed to represent, she seems focused on only representing the 184,000 who voted for her in 2012. Sorry, CongressWOMAN Black, you were elected to represent all the people in your district.
I read this morning that…Continue
I have a question for my fellow democrats in Tennessee. . . Should Obama attack Syria?
If there is one subject matter I am compelled to write about it would be faith. And not just faith like in a song or a love between two people. Rather faith like in a life style and a relationship with Jesus Christ. I have many times over wondered how people who do not believe in Jesus Christ survive the challenges of medical issues, death, and any different number of crisis events one can experience throughout life. As a Christian the three aspects of my relationship…Continue

Watching the three ring circus that is the United States House of Representatives these past few years, it would seem that they've claimed the suffer-RING for the rest of the country. Even notable Republicans like Governor Christie are wise enough to see them for what they are and call them out as "the crazies." Until there is another William Buckley who shooed the extremists and John Birchers (the original tea partiers who called Dwight Eisenhower a Communist) out of the GOP, it will…Continue

Jimmy Rose. I am pretty sure you will recognize his name or at least be asking yourself why that name rings a bell? Jimmy is singing on America’s Got Talent and he introduced the world to his song, “Coal Keeps the Lights On”. He has been quoted by United States Congressman in the House Chamber for his song as they pick up the cause of coal and its importance to people where coal is produced. He has been tweeted about and re-tweeted thousands of times over in social media. YouTube…Continue

The current Defense budget is approximately that which the DoD had in 2007--at the time we had two wars raging. The Republicans in Congress have gotten themselves into a snit because of the sequestration cuts that continue the contraction of Defense spending--to the chagrin of their contractor benefactors and campaign donors.
Perhaps they should answer the following questions:
Who's the enemy?
Why do we need to spend as much on defense as the next seventeen…Continue
Once upon a time, a man was asked why he was banging his head against the wall. He replied, "Because it feels so good when I stop!!" I reflect on our Republicans who represent Tennessee in the House of Representatives.
After holding 39 votes to repeal "Obamacare" with no changes and no chances for their efforts to accomplish anything, and similar votes on women's reproductive health issues (banning abortion,) they are the primary definition of stupidity in Webster's--doing…Continue
Ron Ramsey wrote an interesting editorial on the supposed "boldness" in education reform of the TN GOP since taking the majority. He was particularly proud of the movement against teacher unions. Read my blog as I pick apart a big piece of his arguement.

For a lack of any other forum, I am hoping this venue may offer a chance for my opinions to make a difference, and if not widely read, at least I'll have the satisfaction of venting. Also, I will not waste time writing to my Representative and Senators with my opinions, but will direct them to read them here.
Background: I live in the 6th Congressional District represented by Representative Diane Black. (I'm forever puzzled by her self-identification as a "Congressman" and…Continue
