If you live here in Tennessee then you already know about our situation. If you don’t live here then chances are that you don’t. We have been flooded all over Western, Middle and some parts of East TN. Nashville is covered in water. In west TN Dyersburg is still experiencing rising flood waters with most of that city evacuating. Many small rural towns are completely gone. The web addresses above are just a few, go here for more.
Then again most legislature is confusing, but the TN Gun Law is beyond confusing. It’s a hot mess. “You can take your gun here, but not there and only at certain times and phases of the moon. Then again, municipalities and owners of private property have the power to make their own rules concerning carrying a concealed weapon. So who really knows? Not that it concerns me in particular, I don’t carry, but I do see how this could turn into a “don’t ask, don’t tell” situation when carrying hand guns. I think that is probably already going on more than we know.
It’s one thing to hear a racist or discriminatory joke from a crony at the bar, it’s totally different when it’s a forward from someone connected to your state government. Whether you are a Goforth, Graves or a Hobbs it’s unprofessional. It makes our whole state look like a bunch of clod hopping idiots. We wonder why our state ranks at the bottom of education and companies only want to do business with us because of low wages? It’s because Tennesseans still think racist jokes are funny and cute and we forward them to all our funny and cute friends. Why would anyone invest in such a state of unprofessional clodhoppers. I’m putting all state employees on notice. Do better.
