Do they have a law in the books about beastiality? If they do, why aren't all those good ole Tennessee boys in jail? No offense anyone from Tennessee.
How is that not offensive to people in Tennessee?
That's like saying, "No offense, but you're stupid"... or "No offense, but I just threw up a little in my mouth when I saw your face"....
I'm sure you get my point.

Dude, if you had to live around these people, you would understand. The educated of us are not offended by these statements, because we've seen exactly what kind of inbred morons are running around the hills here. (Or on our city councils, etc.)
San Francisco, CA. The city Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to ask state lawmakers to introduce legislation amending California's criminal code so the county can charge Rhea County, TN commissioners with crimes against nature.
"We need to keep them out of here," said Mayor Gavin Newsom, who introduced the motion.

Assume much? Stupidest part of the nation eh?
Rhea county is a ways away from Nashville...
Nashville is known as the Athens of the South for justifiable reasons. Middle Tennessee has more colleges than any other southern state. The areas surrounding Rhea County are highly intelligent. The only answer to why this is happening in Rhea county is that all those drop outs from UTC and UTK had to settle somewhere... It seems to be a long running trend of that place being Rhea county.
there are a LOT of idiots in charge in Tennessee, which is really sad, because the average Tennessean is fairly intelligent. The problem there lies with that people in Tennessee have a tendency to vote with their hearts and not their heads. Which leads us down the road of corrupt or "just plain stupid" leadership.
Trust me... Not everyone in Tennessee agrees with this. A majority of Tennesseans don't agree with this. The problem is a bunch of dumb people in Rhea county agree with this. Some may not be so dumb... Just overtly religious; but thats a different thread.
I'm not trying to come into this thread and act like we're the brightest flame in the fire; but most Tennesseans don't agree with this. Which is why it's been ongoing for 4 years. Nobody here wants to acknowledge this request, but state law requires the legislation to consider any vote brought forward thorough the legal processes within the state.
I would be very interested in hearing what someone from Rhea county thinks about this, preferably not a county spokesperson.
Proud (semi-intelligent ) Tennessean,
Tennessee, along with Alabama, Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Kansas, Georgia, West Virginia, and Ohio are ruled by some of the dumbest people in the nation. Where such hateful measures are not only introduced, but widely voted on as necessary laws that do nothing short of erode the right of people they don't like. There's a history of it. Blacks, hispanics, Irish, and now gays.
I refer to this being part of the dumbest area of the nation because stupid crap like this seems to always pop up from that part of the country...Hmmm. Kinda makes you wonder.
P.s. good example Redneck! (amazing I never thought 'good' and 'redneck' would ever leave my mouth in the same sentence...)
