Bob Ramsey’s responses to jokes and real issues are often the same

Last week I wrote Bob Ramsey about radioactive polonium in hydrofluorosilicic acid.  Here’s the response that I received.

“After reading the article, I am forwarding it to our health staff for evaluation. Thanks”

Hello Rep. Bob Ramsey D.D.S.,
Do you still support poisoning us against our will when the crap (hydrofluorsilic acid) being dumped in our water is contaminated with radioactive polonium?

Seriously, what else would it take being found in this industrial waste for you to say the benefit of possibly preventing some tooth decay (which actually makes it harder to see tooth decay on x-rays) is out weighed by all the harmful CRAP that comes with it?  Would people have to turn neon green first and grow a 3rd physical eye before you no longer claim your saving their teeth by poisoning them?

Let freedom ring!

Last year, I wrote a satirical email to Rep. Bob Ramsey regarding chocolate being more effective than chemicals containing fluoride in protecting teeth.  I received the following response:

“We are looking for the same results, less decay. This may be a good avenue to that end, and I have sent the suggestion to our staff as well as the TDA administration. Thanks”

As you can see, he forwards it to others, not taking a position either time.

Here’s the response that Richard Hutchens received from Ramsey regarding UT’s Sex Week last year.

Richard Hutchens recently wrote Representative Ramsey on a couple of issues.  Ramsey’s response and Hutchens’ initial email are included fyi.


It is totally worthless sending a well written, well thought out e-mail to Bob.
He doesn’t read them

As my Representatives, Please protect your Constituents God Given and Constitutional Protected Rights to these above principles by Co-Sponsoring HB 2371 and  vote for the End of Forced Annexation in TN Act (EFATA).


The recent political edition of why did the chicken cross the road joke, in which I added my own response, was posted on Stacey Campfield’s blog.  You can see Bob’s thoughtful response.


Last year when Richard Hutchens sent Bob Ramsey concerning the problems with the Blount County Republican Party, he received the same response.


Perhaps you see a pattern in these responses.
