Jimmy Duncan is Right

By Steve Hunley Both the Knoxville News Sentinel and the Maryville Daily Times have given coverage to some folks castigating Congressman John J. “Jimmy” Duncan for refusing to hold a special town hall meeting – – – just for them.  Naturally, after being told no, some of them are immediately intending to take to the […]

Cordell Hull & the Election of 1920

By Ray Hill Cordell Hull had been in Congress since 1907 when he had only narrowly won the Democratic nomination, which inside Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional district was tantamount to election. Hull, only thirty-seven years old at the time, had been nominated by less than twenty votes. There were rumblings about a recount, but Hull went […]

By Jedidiah McKeehan We all see business names listed all the time, and these business names often have either, “LLC,” “Corp.” or “Inc.” written after the name of the business. What do those terms mean?  What’s the difference between them?  How did that company decide between one or the other?  Just based on what sounded […]

Do they understand the common man?

By Joe Rector As I’ve stated before, I’m a political junkie.

Euphemisms

Spring could still come early and 2017 Vols could still start 6-0

By Steve Williams Surely you know figuring out how Tennessee football will do based on National Signing Day results is about as accurate as Punxsutawney Phil’s forecast on Groundhog Day.

Change is on the Way, Part 2

By Steve Hunley Evidently the mainstream media learned not a blessed thing following the election of Donald Trump.  The media is abuzz with varying headlines, barely bothering to hide their continuing bias, impugning every choice Trump makes for his Cabinet.  For instance, take the case of Congressman Tom Price of Georgia, slated to become the […]
