Sure, guffaw all you want libs. TN is taking on the problem most other states have been afraid to approach out of fears of upsetting the political correctness demanded by libtards and the MSM.

1. They are the only state to pass Anti-Sharia Law statuates which would imprisson Islams to 15 years in jail for practicing their treasonous poison.

2. TN, more than any other state, experienced first hand what the muzzies are up to during 9/11. Link Can you imagine forever having your baby's birthday linked to such a horrific day? The odds of that are a million to one, and it's a damn shame.

3. Nashville is an obvious target due to the brave speaking out by our Country and Western stars (well, most of them... I'm looking at you Dixie Chickens)... but of course, Hollywood wants nothing to do with the music Real America listens to, so just let the Grand Ol Oprey be torn down to make another mosque, right libs?

4. Listen to these 2 quotes, and decide who's side you want to be on...

"Only in the Roman Empire and in Spain under Arab domination has culture been a potent factor. Under the Arab, the standard attained was wholly admirable; to [Islamic] Spain flocked the greatest scientists, thinkers, astronomers, and mathematicians of the world, and side by side there flourished a spirit of sweet human tolerance and a sense of purist chivalry. Then with the advent of Christianity, came the barbarians. Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers-already you see the world had already fallen into the hands of the Jews, so gutless a thing Christianity!"

"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."

One is Hitler, one is Winsten Churchills... Which side do you want to be on libs?

Keep fighting the good fight TN!!! Don't become another Michegan!!!

Lenny_da_Hog: Remember, the TEA Party is about taxation! Taxed Enough Already, see?

I think, when they say "Taxed Enough Already," they're actually talking about their brains. We were foolish to assume they were complaining about taxes. These people are just demanding Obama stop using such big farking words.

That sounds like one-a them socialisty languages.

Instead, just have one of the JOB CREATORS (money be upon them) set up an "employment center" on some empty land. The workers could turn it into something more productive than an empty plot - gardens, dormitories, workshops, showers, offices... - and to spur the motivation of these workers, the sign over the entryway will read "Work Makes You Free".

It's an uplifting sort of phrase for an uplifting sort of place, if you really concentrate on the idea.

Willie Geist just loves what you've done with the place, Tennessee. A little bigotry here, a little frothing theofascism there. You just need a good cross burning to really tie the room together.

born_yesterday: Shrugging Atlas: The US fought and won the Civil War for THIS?

Sherman showed them far too much mercy.

I'd say Sherman showed them (and the rest of the country) not enough mercy. Being merciful in this situation would have been to completely kill each and everyone of them.

Solid Muldoon: I'm so glad I live in Memphis and not Tennessee.

That's how I feel about New Orleans and Louisiana. But even though I live in a fun, permissive, and mostly liberal town, I'm still subject to state law, and national embarrassment. So are you.

Seriously, we (Louisiana) are using tax dollars to send kids to Christian schools. The school that has received the most 'scholarships' has a DVD-centric 'curriculum,' window-less classrooms and no library. There is plenty of talk of barring Muslim-affiliated schools from participating in the program, which most of us would find amusing if not for being so farking sad. Some of our Reps. are on the vanguard of doing everything possible to make abortion unobtainable short of being able to overturn the ruling itself. We're circling the drain in nearly every statistic that matters, and offer only more derptastic and already failed solutions to everything. But hey, Jesus!

And don't get me started on volcanoes.

At least by living in NOLA, I don't have to encounter too many religious teabaggers on the streets. Drunks, hookers, gutter punks, hipster douchebags, hapless tourists, rude and outright untrustworthy cops, open-mic poetry nights, discarded crawfish shells, people who think they're vampires, and some guy trying to piss on my stoop until I turn the high-pressure hose on him...but no teabaggers.

There's been a slight delay while they try to figure out a way to goosestep while riding a hoverround.

And now I have a picture in my head of a batallion of hoverounds, each carrying a 400-pound lardbody with atrophied legs, raising their front wheels every half-step, simulating a squad of German stormtroopers. The hoverounds will need to be powered with dilithium crystals, otherwise it will not work.

Only the Teatards could look a picture of a woman with her face visible, no veil, and an unbuttoned shirt (only one or two more to go until you see cleavage) and scream "Sharia Law!". Does these clowns have any idea what they're talking about?

"They seem willing to accept the claims and defense of the Muslim Brotherhood at face value, refusing to even consider that, perhaps, those bent on destroying Western Civilization might just be infiltrating our institutions. ... It is not like this has never happened before.

A teabagger talking about muslims infiltrating our institutions to destroy our society without a hint of irony...

Mentat: You. Can't. Do. That. Farkers. It's in the goddamn Constitution that you claim to love so much.

They'll argue the "No Religious Test" clause only applies to the Federal government, deny that this is an establishment of religion, and claim that anyway the Fourteenth Amendment doesn't actually mean the states are also bound by the First Amendment, because George Washington went to Church.

Or something like that.
