To hell with these peanut pickers

Tennessee water is thicker than blood!!

They are trying to take the water out of my grandbaby's mouth!!

If my Governor calls me to fight, I will be there.

Volunteer State officials have spoken against Georgia’s effort.

Tennessee House Majority Leader Gary Odom, D-Nashville, announced plans Thursday to push a legislative resolution on the water issue.

The resolution will “put our General Assembly on record as to what we think about those shenanigans” of Georgia lawmakers, he said.

Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, R-Blountville, who is Senate speaker, said Volunteer State lawmakers can protect the border simply by refusing to name a commission.

“In order to change a state line, it takes both states to agree to it and Congress (to concur),” Lt. Gov. Ramsey said. “So if we just ignore the issue, there’s not much that they can do.”

Georgia Sen. Shafer is not ruling out going to the U.S. Supreme Court.
