Outside of rock and roll we Tennesseans

have never been known for leading the parade on "social issues" but I am happy to report that we have had our very own protesters for long enough to get the government to pass some rules about who, when and how people can use public areas.

This, as sure as night follows day, yielded this.

The judge released the nutcakes because he claims the law had not been in effect long enough for the people to know they were violating it.

Twenty-nine protesters arrested in Nashville, Tennessee at 3 AM on Friday for refusing to comply with a newly-enacted city rule banning “overnight occupation” have been released after a judge refused to sign criminal trespassing warrants against them.

According to The Tennessean, Night Court Magistrate Tom Nelson explained in an email to Davidson County’s General Sessions judges that “he ordered all of the protesters released from custody because the state had not given the protesters adequate notice that it was changing the rules.”


Of course the Guv disagreed.

It was my understanding that we were going to enforce the curfew from the very beginning," Haslam said after attending a University of Tennessee trustees meeting in Knoxville. "In 14 hours, you should have time to decide whether you're going to stay or not."

Well yes. Yes you should. And everyone but the judge knows that the intent of the protesters was to be arrested. You know, resume enhancement for when they later run as Democrats for some elective office.
Haslam said his administration was responding to complaints from lawmakers and the general public about sanitary conditions and safety on Legislative Plaza.


So the question is, how long will an activist judge be able to let the activists be active???

In the meantime, it seems that we have some actions taking place that are not usually performed in public.

There have been fights, including one relatively vicious slugfest involving brass knuckles, and this week state troopers were dispatched to deal with reports of “public urination and of two individuals committing a sexual act in public,” Safety Department spokeswoman Jennifer Donnals says. The sex act reportedly was taking place beneath a magnolia tree in full view of a state legislator’s office window. No arrests were made.

Ah, the old candy is dandy but magnolia is quicker move.

And only two???? What has happened to our youth?

I understand the legislator had no idea as to what was happening.

But then lack of knowledge is not an unusual thing among our elected officials.

Gomez, a 21-year-old college dropout and drifter from Kansas, concedes things may have gotten a little out of control, but he says that’s the way of forward-thinking movements. Dealing with the “stressed out” homeless has hamstrung Occupy Nashville, which started on Oct. 7, and prevented the protesters from gaining much traction in publicizing their grievances against greedy Wall Street and cash-happy politics, he says.


And don't you just find the mouthing of a 21 year old college drop out just so.....just can I say this....... Enlightening???? Yes. That's it. I always look for 21 year old college drop outs whenever I feel the need to educate myself on economics and taxes.

Doesn't everyone?

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
