Our Supreme Court Has Been Fair And Impartial

Tuesday, July 22, 2014
I find the the ads that are currently running about Tennessee's so-called "Liberal Supreme Court" to be insulting, offensive and misleading.

Our Supreme court has been nothing but fair and impartial, as they are supposed to be. I think maybe those on the right do not like the fact that the Supreme Court has not championed or pushed their right wing agenda, which is probably the real issue behind all of this.

The PAC behind this is being spearheaded by Speaker Ron Ramsey and a group that calls itself "red to the core". You can take that any way you like, but the troublesome issues that through gerrymandering, they now control both the House and Senate as well as the Governor's office and if they are successful in this attempt, they will also control the Judicial branch as well. Do you think that would be a good outcome for the state with no checks or balances at all? Do you really think that they want to protect your rights?

I don't. Please vote no to replacing the current Supreme Court justices.

I challenge our local leaders to get armed security in every school so the kids are not sitting ducks against a crazed lunatic killer. And lock the schools up so people can't get into them. School's ... (click for more)
