Congress consented and Obama signed the effective repeal of the STOCK Act enacted just a year earlier, ensuring that while Rome burns, the looting will go on.
No George Washington’s here.
Also, state level wannabes can continue their personal trek to the golden goose, honoring their false god and deliverer by being a “player” and wearing blinders to the truth.
The thugs and overlords don’t even bother to hide their agenda anymore. It’s not a left vs right thing. George Bush Sr. talked about a New World Order in 1991.
Who among Americans ever asked these scumbags to create a “New World Order”? These Luciferians are from the worst pits of hell.
“Savage aggression” is exactly that these Luciferian scum are. They won’t be happy until they enslave us all.
Imagine the tax savings if people actually educated their own children instead of expecting their neighbors to pay more and more and more taxes to do it. The subpar education can be greatly improved if you do it yourself, while saving your neighbors a ton of money in the process.
THOU SHALT NOT STEAL, except through forced government taxation to educate your kids and get what you want from government funded by your neighbors.
THOU SHALT NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR’S GOODS, except when you want to educate your kids or for anything else you want from taxpayers, who’s goods you stold.

The Tennessee House Business and Utilities Subcommittee chaired by Blount County Representative Art Swann amended the Smart Meter bill stripping it of its opt-out provision, and then killed it. City of Alcoa Assistant Manager Bill Hammond spoke favorably about Smart Meters, calling them dumb meters while no one was given the opportunity to speak for the bill. Hammond said an analog meter cost $30 to $40 while the smart meters Alcoa purchase cost $110. Representative Powell voted against the bill and told Blount County Public Record that he didn’t support an opt-out provision because Utility companies own the meters. When this reported told him the customers pay for everything, Representative Powell said he was new and didn’t want further questions.
The fluoride bills which included Representative Susan Lynn’s bill regulating legislatively identified disease and health conditions and Representative John DeBerry’s referendum bill were sent to summer study committee, after Speaker Beth Harwell said she wants the issue of fluoridation to be studied.
Representative Courtney Rogers bill to prohibit State and local government officials from assisting the military in enforcing the indefinite detention section 1021 in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, failed in the State Government Committee.
A bill granting an owner of property taken by eminent domain a right of first refusal and regulates counter offers and arbitration failed in the House Civil Justice Subcommittee.
The Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act, which places limitations on the use of drones, passed the House Civil Justice Subcommittee and will be heard by the full Committee on April 3. The bill is set to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 2. The policing for profit bill which stops civil assets forfeiture without due process passed the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee and is set to be heard by the full Committee on April 3 and is on the Senate Judiciary April 2nd calendar.
Governor Bill Haslam announced that Tennessee will not expand Medicare at this time, but left the door open to future expansion, saying “This isn’t the end of the story.”
Tennessee is ranked the 3rd freest State in the nation, according to Freedom in the 50 States, a report issued by the Mercatus Center, of George Mason University. Tennessee received high marks for low taxes and right to work while receiving low marks for occupational licensure, alcohol regulations, and several personal freedoms. Only North and South Dakota ranked higher than Tennessee. Download the report at www.freedominthe50states.com.

Dear Chairman Swann,
As a Blount Countian, I feel as though I have little to no representation in Nashville. I have thought that you were better than Bob Ramsey and Doug Overbey who are dyed in the wool career politicians and because you are a small business owner and understand that red tape kills small businesses.
Doug Overbey use to respond to my emails when he was a Representative but as soon as he because a Senator his head became to big to respond other than once in a blue moon. Big Government Bob Ramsey is pathetic. He rarely responds and when he does, a elementary school kid could write a better response. 3 Representatives have joked or said very sharp things about Ramsey when I’ve had conversations with them about how he is so wishy washy and doesn’t take a stand on anything useful. Harwell loves him, but those with principles don’t. She’s a hypocrite, going around talking about how bad fluoride is, then donating the maximum allowable limit by law to ensure that the dentist is strongly for forcing us to have fluoridation is reelected. Even the former Chairman and the Vice Chairman of the Blount County Republican Party in separate conversations told me that Bob is lazy. The people of Blount County can’t depend on Bob or Doug to assist them on anything.
I did believe that you were different, but I am not so sure anymore. Your failure to cosponsor HB1186 when a constituent of yours asked you to, when the bill doesn’t require you to take a position on fluoride is absurd. You know that utilities deserve stricter scrutiny than regular businesses because they are given government granted monopolies. All HB1186 does is let the people have a voice where they have none with unelected boards that are so closed looped that they get to choose the nominees for the mayor to make his appointment from.
This isn’t even a difficult bill. It just says the people can decide if they wish to continue being poisoned. It’s a sad day for Blount County and Tennesseans when their legislators resist them against simple bills like this. It doesn’t commit the State to spend anything and it doesn’t commit you to having to take a stand. It passes the buck to the people, where it rightfully belongs.
Stand for freedom. Don’t be Bob or Doug. Blount County deserves at least one elected official who stands for something beyond the status quo in Nashville.
Vote for HB1186 and encourage your Committee members to support it as well.
Also, vote for HB373. So as not to write a treatise, I’ll give you one good reason to vote for it. I want you to. I have the right to determine what is on my house and what isn’t and I don’t want a smart meter. You were elected by the people, not the utility companies. Support the smart meter bill because the people deserve to choose whether they want one of these contraptions or not. I don’t and that’s all this bill does is says I don’t have to have one.
Both of these bills are necessary because of unaccountable utilities created by governments who set them up with very little accountability. It’s time to demand some accountability to the customers.
Let freedom ring!
From Karen Bracken:
THIS IS IT FOLKS. WE ARE DOWN TO THE FINAL DAY.

I have made sending an email as easy as possible. I suggest you send two emails to the subcommittee. 1 to address the 2 Fluoride bill/resolution (HB1186/HJR0130). 1 to address the Smart Meter Choice bill (HB373). HOPE TO SEE YOU ON TUESDAY IN NASHVILLE.
The same subcommittee members will be hearing all 3 of these bills (HB1186 – Rep. DeBerry – Fluoride Referendum) (HJR0130 – Rep. Lynn – Resolution to request further study of fluoridating our water supply) and (HB373 – Rep. Womick – Smart Meter Choice)
I have attached information on Fluoride and Smart Meter for you to attach to your email. Be sure to send your email using the BCC option.
I have also included a sample letter you can use to address the Fluoride issue. You will be sending two separate emails to the same group list.

FLUORIDATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION
3311 Laws Chapel Rd.
Maryville, TN 37803
HB 1186 by DeBerry SB 1211 by Campfield
We are asking for your support on the subject bill currently in our Tennessee House and Senate committees.
The citizens of Blount County feel that they should have a choice when it comes to ingesting chemicals. Hydro-fluosilicic acid, not natural fluoride, is being added to our water supply by local utility districts. Fluoridation without Representation actually filed a court case in 2008 to request information regarding the elements that are present in this product, knowing that it contains mercury, arsenic, lead, etc. Our lawsuit was dismissed on the basis that the utility company was not required to answer our Discovery questions. Therefore, not only are the utility board members not elected, they have no accountability to their customers.
Customers of the utility districts are being drugged, without their permission, with a toxic waste chemical that has never been approved by the FDA. Even a medical doctor’s creed states: “Do no harm”. Fluoridation has been proven to have harmful health affects for people, such kidney disease, thyroid problems, arthritis, cancers, IQ deficiencies, as well as fluorosis of the teeth. The National Kidney foundation has pulled their support of fluoridation and the ADA has announced that baby formulas should not be mixed with fluoridated tap water. Citizens who want fluoride added to their diet have fluoride tablets and toothpastes available; while people who do not want to ingest this poison, are forced to purchase expensive filtration systems for their homes, if they can even afford to do so.
The subject bill does not stop fluoridation. It gives the citizens of Tennessee who live in fluoridated areas the opportunity to have a referendum of choice. We believe that people deserve the right to determine whether or not fluoridation will cease or continue.
I would be more than happy to provide information or meet with you personally to discuss this fluoridation referendum bill. Thank you for your consideration.

*examine the powerpoint document “The Future of War” at this location
This year, I made it my goal to get a bill introduced in the State legislature to give the people a voice on fluoride being added to their public water supply. Water Boards are unelected and often unaccountable to the wishes of their customers. Legislator Joey Hensley was so fed up with the Water Boards in Lewis County that he sponspored legislation last session to require the Boards in Lewis Co. to be elected. This legislation gives the people a voice where they have none.
Linda and Joe King and Karen Miller have been attending the South Blount County Utility District meetings for years presenting the latest research on the dangers of fluoridation. They, along with others, gathered about 1,400 signatures requesting an end to the fluoridation but were told by the Board that they didn’t care if they got 10,000 signatures.
Former Mayor Jerry Cunningham strong armed the Board into fluoridating. Mayor Ed Mitchell said he would appoint new people to the Board while campaigning and after election when he spoke to the Smoky Mountain Tea Party. He has failed to keep his promise, reappointing some of the same members.
Linda King filed a lawsuit to simply find out what South Blount Utility District was adding to the water, but the Court said the Board didn’t have to tell her. Citizens asked the Blount County Commission to let them vote on the issue. That also fail on deaf ears.
Thus, the good people of Blount County have exhausted every peaceful remedy they have at the local level and their petitions and request have been ignored and treated with disrespect. The height of that may have been when former County Commissioner Steve Hargis told Linda King that 1,400 signatures wasn’t that many. This is the same Commissioner that told the owner of South Blount Excavating that the signatures that he collected to be allowed to extend his business operations onto adjacent land was a lot of signatures, even though it was less than the number of signatures requesting that fluoridation stop.
The total failure of local government to respond to the request of it’s citizenry is why I went to the State legislature and presented what we’ve experienced and asked that we be given an opportunity to vote. Some legislators have been receptive and HB1186 and SB1211 are the result. Thank you to Representative John DeBerry and Senator Stacey Campfield for sponsoring the legislation.
The legislation was written by me, except for (i), which concerns me because any time you give bureaucrats the ability to promulgate rules you should be concerned. There are some minor changes in the rest, but it is basically as I wrote it.
As written, the legislation will not allow for a referendum to be used to put fluoride in the water. It simply allows for the people to vote to either keep it or remove it, where fluoridation is already occurring.
The Business and Utilities Subcommittee in the House will hear the bill. This is where we must start working to get support for the legislation to finally get the poison out of our water supply.
