Are our national legislators showing their true colors or getting the job done?

    Exactly, Steve!

    I think we need to limit bills to 1 thing at a time. No adding several different unrelated things. Or let the President have a line item veto.

    It is absolutely ridiculous holding America hostage for pet pork.

    But as they say: " don't let a good crisis go to waste".

  • Tennessee has long been among the best managed States from a fiscal point of view. This is primarily due to two Tennessee Constitutional provisions: Tennessee budget cannot exceed projected revenues; and, no proposed legislation can pertain to more than one subject, that subject to be noted in the caption of the proposed bill.

    These provisions should be, and must be, memorialized as Amendments to the US Constitution, by a convention of the States if necessary. This method will likely be required as expecting Congress to do the right thing is an oxymoric expectation.

  • That is great to know Carl. When was the “one subject per bill” instituted?

  • The Tennessee Constitution was written in its present form, basically, in 1833. It has been amended a few times and changed by Court findings some. I haven't looked up just when this provision was placed in the Tn. Constitution, but it was a long time ago.

  • Steve, the caption feature was memorialized in the Constitution adopted at the Constitutional Convention of 1870 and is the Constitution of today.

  • Thanks Carl, those ‘old folks’ had some good thinking caps on.

    And I say the law that says "possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell is a violation of that constitutional provision. With a law if you possess a drug, you automatically can be charged with intent to sell where there may not be any intent to sell the drug or if you sell or offer to sell the drug you can be charged with both counts.

    How many times have you read where someone has been charged with several different counts in a trial?

    The TN Constitution says you can not be charged more than $50.00 for any crime unless by a jury. How many non jury trials charge more than $50 for speeding, running a stop sign etc., etc.? It use to cost $62 minimum every time anyone went to court. Don't know what it is now.

    The supreme court has ruled that any right guaranteed to the people by the constitution can never be taken away except by punishment for a heinous crime.

    So why is there any gun control legislation about owning or carrying or keeping guns?

    In this country we have two classes of people: The Sovereign Man and Woman and the Federal Citizens (14th amendment citizens). Each have their own class of people and set of laws.

    Legislators must legislate for the Sovereign people according to the constitution but when legislating for the other class of Government employees, Federal Citizens and 14th Amendment Citizens, the legislators can legislate any way they want to without constitutional restrictions and limitations. The Legislators are only bound by Civil Privileges and Immunities for this class of people.

    This just proves that there is no EQUAL Protection of the law.

    To further prove this Our High Courts have ruled: "All actions of government are legal actions, though they may NOT BE LAWFUL ACTIONS, AND unless THE action is TIMELY and SPECIFICALLY OBJECTED TO, it is presumed to be lawful actions."

    I have people come up to me and tell me that the state keeps taking away their rights because all they have to do is amend the constitution.

    I politely tell them no rights can be taken away by an amendment. They can only amendment the constitution to give you MORE rights. They can not a take away a right that the constitution has already given to the people. If they take away any of your rights, they did so in violation of the Constitution they are suppose to protect, and the amendment would be "UNLAWFUL", therefore it is NULL and VOID and does not change anything.

    Just like Congress giving all the Federal Agencies that have titles like FBI, CIA, IRS, FEMA and SS to the United Nations. That is a violation of our US Constitution, so all that is NULL and VOID. If they insist that it is legal, then no one is subject to them except Gov employees and Federal Citizens and people living in DC and other Federal Territories and Properties including National Parks.

    If you look around you, that is exactly the way it is here in America today.

    You must claim your rights and object to being tried in a "Timely and Specific Manner" and make them prove you are a corporation or they can not proceed.

    The thing is, after April 10th, we will no longer have a democratic party and all new people will have to be voted in by a special election. Pick your choices wisely or it will start all over again! Did all of you take a good look at Pelosi this weekend and on Monday. Did she look the same to you? That wasn't Pelosi and neither is that Joe Biden. These are look-a-likes who can not answer the questions people throw at them. They are not Politicians, they are actors and actresses or Clones.

    Just thought I would throw y'all a bonus to warp your minds.

    Also, Trump said, "The Mass Media can not hide and many will be Jailed. The initial Arrest will be FAST and MEANINGFUL."

    Trump will signal and we will see the tide turn immediately

    Trump will Tweet, "The storm is upon us!" and the arrests will start simultaneously.

    The black out was scheduled for April 1st but may start earlier and end on Good Friday. It will be Biblical, and end with the Coronavirus is neutralized.

    Trump is working with 17 Countries against the Deep State, including Russia, China, North Korea and Japan. I mentioned these because they are good countries working with Trump. What you hear bad about these Countries is what the Deep State is doing in and from these Countries making it look like these Countries are against the USA.

    Floods are coming soon in California. Watch for the discovery of more Gold in California!

  • Here's a copy of the bill, for those brave enough to wade through it.

    Almost all of it senseless pork. The dems want to ruin the country, so they can institute socialism. Classic Cloward-Piven.

    Ending poverty with guaranteed annual income is just like a perpetual energy machine. Ain't gonna happen. But the dims will do anything they can to ruin the country.

    The Democrats are only fighting to postpone their Indictment arrests. They are not able to get Blood from children any more so they are going insane from the lack of drinking the blood. They are all slowly dying. Movie Stars and anyone who is some one. Watch it coming, because Nothing can stop it!

    Trump said yesterday, the Mass Arrests may start before the 1st day of April.

    You will know when it is starting because Trump will announce"The Storm is upon us" on the Emergency Broadcast.

    Trump has moved the 10 days of darkness up one day! It will now start on March 31 since Bill Barr won't be questioned on March 31 and run until April 9th. On the 10th and 11th you will see the Main Stream Media Liars being arrested and Trump will announce the Coronavirus is gone! Then on the 12th we will enjoy Easter Sunday. More than likely, we will enjoy everyday after that with the Deep State in Prison.

    It all starts in 6 more days!

    It all starts in 6 more days! The Storm will be over and the Birds will start singing. That means the people who were arrested during the 10 days will start talking and turning in other Deep State opps.

    Trump has also ordered two ships to help out with their beds and meds, if you believe that. One will be in California and the other in New York. The two places where the MOST criminals are.

    Now if the Corinavirus is going to be over after the Mass arrest, I believe these ships will be used as Prisons for the arrestees. Do I make myself clear?

    This comes from POTUS. Watch for his emergency message on March 31 now.

    I finally got an answer on the power. Like I thought. The darkness is media silence. We won't be able to hear anything about what is happening , where it is happening, when it is happening but we know why and that's all that matters. The power will remain on unless the Deep State gets its antifa gangs to cause interruptions by damaging power stations or high voltage power lines. Hope they try, because I believe the Martial law will be out in force to help with the 12 day arrests. Mainly to protect the Media Studios from Vandalism because they will all be sold to new owners. Remember? Our Government will own them due to Trump's executive order giving him the power to confiscate assets of the criminals involved in Human Trafficking and Organ Harvesting or any harm to humans.

    According to my count, it should be 1 more day. But apparently sui switched threads and maybe today is the day. Anyway, carry on as usual.
