But it is the only legislation going through the legislature!

Here is a new one from today. (new window)

Pretty much these bills are troll attempts by 1 state legislator Stacy Campfield and do not necessaraly represent the views of Governor Haslam, the other GOP reps in TN, or the overal voting public of TN, and the media is basically portraying them as more than trolling attempts by Mr Campfield

Are the homos wearing low-rider pants nowadays. Is this just the carpet munchers? I'm confused.

If enough people in your nation are truly seeking that much confirmation bias(supply)that it fuels that much network(demand), perhaps your people are wanting a shift to the left. Or we are all brainwashed tools.

Yeah, tired meme is tired.

If making laws is sausage, then I suggest you'm enlighten up, and make ACE law, biatches, for at least that sausage might be palatable...

Last time I checked, we ALL liked sausage, but we prefer local food best; local links are made every day, biatches squared...

Seriously, Mr Campfield is the sponsor of those bills. They are little more than a troll attempt by him. mere forum trolls like myself aspire to be as big of trolls as Mr. Campfield.

Oldiron_79: Seriously, Mr Campfield is the sponsor of those bills.


Nope. A simple Google search on the two bills mentioned by subby show that Campfield was not the sponsor of either bill.

The "Saggy Pants" bill was introduced by Rep. Joe Towns (D-Memphis). Yes, a Democrat. It passed the passed Senate 29-0 and the House 81-9.

The "Don't Say Gay" bill was introduced by Rep. Jim Gotto (R-Nashville). It died before coming to the floor, but had gathered a decent amount of Republican support.

These "crazy" bills are not the work on out-of-touch guy, no matter how much you want to deflect the fact that Tennessee is beginning to give Mississippi a run for the most moronic state legislature in the nation.

The important thing, Gov. Haslam, is that you can run for reelection bragging that all of your party's legislations, every last bit of it, has created jobs, lowered taxes, reduced the overreach of government, and expanded freedom for all. Saaaalute!

Of course, this being a democracy (well, sorta), it's not such much the legislature that is moronic . . . .

I wear button-down shirts and jeans pretty much all the time. Not tucking in my shirt would look as ridiculous as having my pants hanging around my upper calves.

I would say it would look gay, but that's apparently not allowed to be mentioned in Tennessee anymore.

McDonnell tried the same diversion in Virginia. The talking point was that abortion and personhood and anti-gay legislation was only 3 percent of the total bills introduced. He and other Republicans seemed really baffled that 3 percent of the bills got 90 percent of the coverage. Which speaks volumes about what guys like this believe, and how little they understand about what people actually care about.
