Rick Morton: " Stop being afraid that someone might take advantage of a government program, and think about the benefit......We need to get the middle class going again...stop building prisons, and sole the poverty cycle, affordable education is an answer..not THE answer, but a start." ~ http://www.addictinginfo.org/2015/01/22/free-community-college-pays/
Come On ... this is AWFUL! You can spare 30 seconds to add your name to a petition to this poor bear out of this shameful situation. To Gov. Bill Haslam: CLOSE DOWN BEAR PIT IN PIGEON FORGE, TENNESSEE ... Please sign and share widely. No animal should live like this. This bear has the same feelings as your beloved dog or cat!
Tennessee just became the first state that will jail women for their pregnancy outcomes - We stand against SB 1391 that Gov. Bill Haslam signed into law in Tennessee. Choice is NOT about jailing women for pregnancy outcomes!
If an education summit convened Thursday by Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam (R) is any indication of what’s top priority to many state lawmakers and education groups, the Common Core standards will be the central education battle during the upcoming legislative session in the state.
The bill says a pregnant woman may be prosecuted for an “assaultive offense … if her child is born addicted … or harmed by the narcotic drug.” She can be charged with homicide if her baby dies because of her drug use. If Gov. Bill Haslam signs the bill or allows it to become law without his signature, it will be the first law of its kind in the country.
