Vote For Lamar -- And Response

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Please vote for Lamar Alexander for senator on Aug. 7.  

Lamar has a history of serving the people of this great state. His conservative and rational positions on issues important to the voters of the state of Tennessee are out in front and are easily ascertainable. Equally important is the manner in which he comports himself, as a gentleman who articulates the positions of his constituents while being civil to those who are not of like mind.

Unfortunately, there are those who oppose our conservative statesman who are not civil. They also are not adherents to Ronald Reagan's 11th Commandment of presenting a united conservative front to the liberal agenda. Recently, at a gathering of Lamar's supporters, the incivility of the supporters of another candidate was in full bloom. Apparently, rather than being able to fund or have their own gathering, they had only the ability to follow Lamar to heckle him, video his supporters walking in and out of a local popular restaurant and yell at those supporters entering or leaving the restaurant.

These less than civil activities have galvanized my support for Lamar and have led me to write this letter. 

I urge everyone to vote for Lamar.

******************

Lamar Alexander votes at least 62 percent of the time with Democrat President Barack Obama and some passionate conservatives are determined to let the uninformed voters know it by doing whatever they can, legally, to let everyone know. That is the American Way, to be brave and take action, legal action. Nothing the folks Mr. Fleenor spoke of was in the least illegal or even wrong. It is their right to speak out. 

However, because some passionate conservatives are determined to let everyone know this by being very non-discreet, some people are willing to send Lamar Alexander back to the Senate for another six years? If you want a Senator that votes with Barack Obama the majority of the time, yes, send Lamar Alexander back to the Senate. If you want someone with a view point that is different than Obama the majority of the time, elect Joe Carr.

Roy Exum: Fourth Of July, 2015

As one who is about good and fed up with being “socially correct” so less than 10 percent of us can dictate how the other 90 percent of us ought to think, I am going to pause today in order to share a wonderfully fun email that has been around for a while. It is aptly called, “You Could Have Heard A Pin Drop.” Before I do, I got a sweet note the other day from my dear friend ... (click for more)

New Walmart Neighborhood Market Is A Step Back For The East Brainerd Community - And Response

Driving out East Brainerd Road recently, I was excited to see that what I thought was the run down strip center being renovated was actually a new Walmart Neighborhood Market.  I believe that this is the same type facility that was proposed for Middle Valley, but was rejected by the local citizens living in that area. I don't recalling hearing anything about any neighborhood ... (click for more)
