Those darn pesky constitutions

 

Frank White

There remains a voice of reason amidst the Tennessee government rush to insanity. The state attorney general remains level headed enough to realize that we have Tennessee and U.S. constitutions.

That alone is reason enough to push back the tea-drinkers’ effort to change the method of selecting the attorney general. But, the other side of this is his levelheaded thinking will cause them to push more passionately to change the process.

Too busy drinking tea and changing the political landscape, the political forces of power don’t have time or inclination to read those stuffy old documents. Otherwise, they would have realized early on that their photo identification requirement for voters would run afoul of the constitutional right to vote. «Read the rest of this article»

Teagarden Belts Three Homers, Drives In Seven To Lead Round Rock

Nashville SoundsRound Rock, TX – Catcher Taylor Teagarden belted three home runs and drove in seven RBIs to power the Round Rock Express to an 18-9 romp over the Nashville Sounds on Sunday afternoon at The Dell Diamond.

Teagarden – who became the first opposing player to hit three home runs against Sounds pitching in a single game since Nashville joined the Pacific Coast League in 1998 – did all of his damage in the early part of the contest, swatting a home run in three consecutive innings from the second through the fourth. He belted a solo shot in the second before delivering three-run blasts in the third and fourth. The backstop now has five home runs and 11 RBIs on the year.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

News of the death of Osama bin Laden had only a fleeting positive effect on the stock market on Monday. The economic data were mixed, with some disappointment in the ISM Non-Manufacturing Index and weekly jobless claims, but there was an upside surprise in nonfarm payrolls. Commodity prices tumbled sharply on Thursday, reflecting a partial unwinding of the speculative element.

Nonfarm payrolls rose by 244,000 (median forecast: +195,000), with a 46,000 upward revision to the two previous months. Private-sector payrolls rose by 268,000 – a 233,000 average over the last three months (vs. +104,000 in the three months before that) and gains were broad-based. State and local government payrolls fell by 22,000, down 272,000 (or -1.4%) over the last 12 months. The unemployment rate rose to 9.0%, from 8.8% (it was 9.8% in November), but these figures have been unreliable in recent months. The employment-to-population ratio, a better measure of capacity utilization in the labor market, edged down to 58.4%, little changed over the last year. «Read the rest of this article»

Mother’s Day Can Suck for Military Moms

 

Mother’s Day is a holiday to celebrate and pay tribute to Mothers.

Most Mothers receive phone calls, cards, gifts from their children. Some children are able to spend the day with their Mothers. We mothers appreciate it more than words can say just as our mothers and grandmothers certainly enjoyed this day and receiving our thanks and appreciation for their love, nurturing, encouragement, and sacrfices made for us.

However, military moms whose children are deployed to war zones hope for more than a card, a phone call, or email from their child on this special day.  They desperately desire with an intense passion that they will see their child again in this lifetime. They long for that day, that hour, that minute when they can see their child and welcome him home with a big hug. «Read the rest of this article»
