Special Call Black Community Mass Meeting & Forum


Terry McMooreThe Clarksville Black Community is experiencing a high rate of Black on Black Violence, High School Dropouts, Discrimination, Low Voter Turnout, and Unemployment is at an all time high. A disproportionate number of black children are being suspended or expelled and the jails have more black faces then we have black graduates. We must come together, discuss the issues, but most importantly decide what we must do to help ourselves

9/11 Conspiracy Theories


Checklist for warI frequently review the top 100 videos on both Google video, and Youtube, looking for interesting materials to share with the readers of this website. I look at the dross, so that you don’t have to.

Since September 11th there have been those who say that what we actually saw, may not have been what we thought. Videos on this subject have been in the top 100 videos on Google video for a long time. Well after a new one recently appeared in to the top 100 videos, I felt that perhaps we should all take a look. I make no judgments on the content of these videos. I don’t advocate for them or against them, consider this simply an exercise in constructive reasoning. «Read the rest of this article»

I am a liberal, and proud of it.


Just say no, RepublicansIn the Leaf Chronicle the Clarksville, TN newspaper today was a editorial “Bush has proved to be lawless, reckless: Centrists who support Jefferson’s values are starting to gain strength” by David Broder. Of course this brought the Republican wingnuts out of the woodwork, and they immediately launched into their tactic of attacking anyone who dares to disagree with them.

Some tasty quotes, “lock-stepping with the liberal press”, “The anti-American crowd”, “fools”, “Typical liberal lies and drivel”. They have been drinking the Republican’s kool-aid for too long. Of course, I felt the need to respond. So here goes…. «Read the rest of this article»


Honor or expectation?


School DeskHaving just read a Leaf Chronicle story on the recent accreditation of the Clarksville Montgomery School System by the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges, apparently the second such district to be so “honored,” I am appalled that until now the system has apparently not met the most basic academic standards for accreditation. I am equally appalled that, according to this story, most of the state’s other school districts are seemingly too inadequate, too substandard, to be accredited. «Read the rest of this article»

What’s next? Where will the discrimination end?


Civil Rights for Gay CouplesMy life is not that different than yours. I get up (usually quite some time after the alarm has gone off); grab a quick shower and a bite to eat before dashing off to work or school (usually unbelievably late). I work in customer service for a major cell phone corporation as an extension of the management team and take escalations from customers all day.

Overall, I enjoy my job. I come home, eat dinner, watch my DVR recorded TV shows (The West Wing, The Simpsons, and Eureka), read a chapter or two from a book, and fall asleep until the next day. I truly hope that my “gay lifestyle” is not offending anyone reading this quite yet. I have a townhouse near the hospital, a loving partner (Whom I don’t see enough of as I’d like.), and a kitchen table that has more paperwork than the IRS director’s desk. «Read the rest of this article»

Media Consolidation and the Corporate Media


TV warningTonight’s theme is media consolidation and the corporate media. I have rounded up a collection of videos from Youtube and Google Video which highlight some of the issues raised by the massive over consolidation of the media, giving a just few companies,  full control over what you see, hear, and read. You only have to look at the recent attempt to rewrite history attempted by the Disney Corporation in cahoots with ABC to see why this should concern all of us. «Read the rest of this article»
