SuperTalk WFHG John Quaintance

Did you hear this radio host yesterday calling Christians closed-minded and lots of other derogatory names? All because they have faith and believe that God created the earth and humans. Wow, I was shocked, that in this area he could keep his position talking about Christians in such a way.  (Dec 13, 2012 | post #16)

Isn't panhandling illegal??

Panhandling is only illegal if they do it in close proximity to the roadway, similar to hitchhiking. Or if they are begging on private property. It is not illegal to ask someone for a buck, just depends on how and where they do it.  (Jul 9, 2012 | post #10)

David Phillips (while in prison) hired to work for Johnso...

He does have a wife and other family members, as well as a manager for the daily operations. I doubt he has much input while mopping the floors in the mess hall  (Apr 26, 2012 | post #19)

POST commission auditing the Unicoi County Sheriff's Dept.

I hear it is because of his medical issues. Any Law officer must apply to the POST (police officer standards training commission) for a waiver when they have an extended medical issue, and not able to perform their duties. The Sheriff has not done that to my understanding, and he is on the commission! Certainly he should know better. They could revoke his certification, or issue him the waiver.  (Nov 21, 2011 | post #3)

Harris' "Tough on Crime" Claim

Because Buford Pusser wants all the glory, no sharing. He is only thought to be hard on crime because he generates such media attention when he does any little thing. Our media is hungry for anything, so when a chief law enforcement officer wants to do a story, even if considered minor by most standards, they are all over it. The crime on line stats are only good if they are reported correctly. Sheriff depts are notorious for under reporting anyhow, so the true figures could be even worse than what you see.  (Nov 2, 2011 | post #6)

I Believe In:

The most illustrious of the Cynic philosophers, Diogenes of Sinope serves as the template for the Cynic sage in antiquity. An alleged student of Antisthenes, Diogenes maintains his teacher’s asceticism and emphasis on ethics, but brings to these philosophical positions a dynamism and sense of humor unrivalled in the history of philosophy. Though originally from Sinope, the majority of the stories comprising his philosophical biography occur in Athens.
