I'm getting a little tired of people like Johnny Dodd saying "The community needs to come together". What is he talking about? I interpret his statement as "The white people need to step forward and stop all of this crime". Hello? How can the white people stop the crime? We are all afraid to leave our homes after dark and we already pour enough tax dollars into these crime-ridden areas of town. The "community" doesn't need to come together....the people who are killing each other just need to stop...which they will never do. It's gone on too long...there is no way to stop it. I am ready to move to East Tennessee.
That sounds great. We welcome good and decent people.

Will his political grandstanding stop crime here in his district?
If so, it will be peaceful after Friday. He announced his march at 5:30, according to the Jackson Sun.

I could not care any less what color you are (though out of sheer curiosity I would ask if you have checked your genealogy to determine that you actually are African-American and not just black. And moreover I have checked mine and you don't hear me saying I'm welsh-American. I was born in america, I'm just an American). Your posts are incoherent, rambling messes. Why is it always the people who can't properly construct a sentence who go on about how educated they are?
Anyway, hate to admit this, but the idea of paying people who volunteer to be sterilized is actually quite a good one.
And we could pay people based on how intrusive their choice would be. At the top tier, those who choose a permanent fix to birth control would get the bigger check and top floor of the housing development.

If you just choose birth control pills, you get a lower amount because you can choose to go off them at any moment. But we could drug test to see if it's in a person's system to make sure they are on the up and up. And you have to agree that if you go off the pill and get pregnant, your check doesn't go up. Taxpayers should not suffer for your pleasure.

Jay Z and Ice T can create a rap song about how cool it is for inner city black youth to get a vasectomy, etc. There are a lot of ideas that could both help people and help the working people who fund their lifestyles.

We could even pay poor gays more since seed does not grow in the dark.

Another shooting last night. But wait, it wasn't in Dodd's district, that's OK, right?
