Dr. Mary Headrick Is The Cure For District 3's Ills -And Response (3)

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Are your tired of playing "Where's Waldo?" with our current congressman? Are you tired of the antics of a young contender that are right out of a national lampoon skit? Are you tired of the GOP soap opera?

Then I suggest you consider Dr. Mary Headrick, a mature professional, for our 3rd District representative. 

She will not be beholden to special interests unlike our current congressman. She will focus on the interests of our district such as the decaying Chickamauga Lock. And she will bring maturity and judgment that the young contender is sorely lacking to the office.

It is time we elected an adult for the office.  Let's elect Dr. Mary Headrick.

Even though I do agree with R.W. Young that Chuck Fleischmann is not exactly the second coming of Howard Baker the idea that Mary Headrick is the cure is absurd. If she was elected about the third day she was in office she would be ushered into Nancy Pelosi's office and given her marching orders.  

We don't need San Francisco lite as our 3rd District representative.

Mr. Douglas Jones comments that Dr. Headrick is "San Francisco Lite," and that Dr. Headrick will get "her marching orders from Nancy Pelosi" are very sad.

How did Dr. Headrick manage to get a BA (Cum Laude in Math at UT in 1968, teach high school math, get a MS from UT in Computer Science in 1972, work at Oak Ridge as a computer analyst from 1972-1976, and then get her MD in 1983 from UT in Memphis?  How did she, without Macy Pelosi, accomplish all of that?  How did she become a successful medical practitioner for many, many years?  How did she make a career full of life and death decisions as an emergency room physician?  How did she successfully manage all of that in a long, successful marriage with tow children?  Is any of that "San Francisco Lite?"

It is unfortunate that Mr. Douglas Jones would suggest that Dr. Headrick will not make her own decisions, in the best interests of the 3rd District.  That approach certainly doesn't promote dialogue.

Dr. Headrick is the best candidate for any office that I have seen in many years.

Mr. Jones would suggest that our current representative is a free thinker unencumbered by the marching orders and party line talking point of John Boehner and the Teapublicans.

It is time to move beyond waiting to see which ineffective republican will be the next placeholder in Washington.


I will be voting for Dr. Headrick

Plausible Explanations

The revelation that the Trump organization from the very genesis of the presidential campaign maintained regular and repeated, if not constant, contact with Russian agents raises many questions. They are like the spokes of a wheel revolving around the one central question: Why was the Trump campaign communicating with the Russians?   What are the plausible explanations ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Never Write When Angry

There are two truisms that I have wrestled with since I was insulted and affronted by an angry group of parents and supporters on Thursday night at the monthly meeting of the Hamilton County School Board. I was incensed by the behavior of those representing the Chattanooga School for the Liberal Arts (CSLA) and, yes, I thought it was the most foolish display of arrogance I can remember ...
