Obama to visit Chattanooga Tuesday with new Internet Sales Tax on his mind

Obama to visit Chattanooga Tuesday with Internet Sales Tax on his mind

Please join our protest against the fake president  and his attempt to yet again place another tax on us with the “promise” of more jobs created.

This president has done nothing for job creation in this country. He is expected to spend 4 trillion dollars this year and for every job created two people are placed on food stamps. This hardly seems like a path to prosperity.

President Obama’s push for an Internet Sales Tax (known as the Marketplace Fairness Act) during his visit to the Amazon.com fulfillment center on Tuesday the 30th. 

Amazon.com is also pushing the new Internet Sales Tax, which coincidentally was written by TN’s own Senator Lamar Alexander. It figures he would come to town to greet his brother in arms, Alexander to celebrate a new tax for Tennesseeans! After all, Lamar Alexander did vote with him 63 percent of the time.

Let’s welcome the president to Tennessee with open arms……holding signs and displaying them in disgust.

Come join the many “true Americans” and send a strong message to Obama and his minions Haslam, Alexander and Corker that his politics and presence are not welcome in Tennessee.

July 30th, 2013
EXACT TIME AND LOCATION TO BE DETERMINED!!!
7200 Discovery Dr, Chattanooga, TN

Please plan to be there with your signs waving. If you have a bullhorn, bring it too!

ALEC- Big corporation “bill mill” members revealed, has local ties

In Government on August 31, 2012 at 9:09 AM

Revealing a “bill mill” member list that has numerous corporate influences has proven to be a difficult task. Although no one really appears to want to be associated with this group, the list has been evasive but not insurmountable.

In case you were wandering, TN State Rep 24 District Kevin Brooks and State Senator 9th District Mike Bell are on this list with Julia Hurley, Gerald McCormick and recently RINO hunted and ousted Debra Maggart.

ALEC’s own website misdirected me and left me with no results when I pressed the tab for a complete membership list. This prompted me to request via email to a Mrs K. Jones to reveal that list, which at the time of this posting has not been answered.

The level of influence this semi secretive fascist group has on legislation that hits the State Senate and House floor is phenomenal. ALEC boasts about a thousand successful bills that have ranged from cutting large corporate taxes to defunding public schools and shifting public money to private education.

Largely this group identifies itself as a conservative group with grassroots ties but many of their proposed bills over the years has suggested otherwise.

Scanning over the list of elected and non elected officials I see many RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) tied to NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) and PPPs (Public Private Partnerships)

It does not surprise me that the Gates Foundation recently donated almost a half million dollars to the group to promote educational And other issues but later pulled it’s membership but left it’s donation. Sort of tells me they were in and out with the cash. Sort of like a lobbyist would do to get a bill passed.

The KOCH brothers essentially creating and funding this organization with many corporate membership fees deepens the involvement of the bureaucracy that is influencing our elected officials and getting their bills to the house floor. Being of multi billion dollar oil fortunes, it again doesnt surprise me that around 15 oil companies are on the corporate list of manipulators.

Struggling public schools are meeting heavier challenges as ALEC passes legislation through it’s educational committee that is crippling the local education cash flow. Our very own 24th District Tennessee State Representative Kevin Brooks is on the education board.

I am all about we need to reign in our public schools and the endless flow of taxpayer dollars that get sucked up by huge vacuums of red tape and lucrative paying jobs for top brass. I think it is more important to recognize those that are behind the scenes making this more difficult. Our State Legislator publicly supports public education but the “model legislation” that cones out of ALEC is the opposite. I am preparing a blog about the bills that have been passed through ALEC’s Education committee to support my claim. The info is out there it is just disguised very well and warrants many hours of research to expose it.

Take a look at the people, the companies and the outside organizations, many international, that are working with ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) to influence legislation that affects you.

At first glance you think these bills that are being tossed out of ALEC are the genius of a very productive legislator or Senator, when in fact they are nothing more than a clone of a big corporation with an avenue to destroy the free market through favoritism and manipulation.

ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, corporations hand state legislators their wishlists to benefit their bottom line. Corporations fund almost all of ALEC’s operations. They pay for a seat on ALEC task forces where corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills. Learn more at the Center for Media and Democracy’s ALECexposed.org, and check out breaking news on our PRWatch.org site.

Tennessee legislators and Senators that are members of ALEC. Not surprising locally our very own State Representative Kevin Brooks and State Senator Mike Bell are on board with this fascist group.

Bradley County land grab under way by forced annexation! Feeling a little like Clint Eastwood!

In Agenda 21, Government on February 16, 2012 at 12:32 PM

Land grab? Yes! The city is launching an all out assault on your property! The city has decided to annex a large portion of Bradley County! See details in article below!

Where are our locally elected officials? Let me tell you where they are! They are mum, silent and 100 percent complicit with this forced annexation! Why? Let me tell you! They will be getting more of your money! It’s that simple!

This is essentially a new tax that you will not get to vote on! Do I have the hair on the back of your neck standing erect yet?

My understanding is now you get to pay city and county taxes if you live within the Mouse Creek Corridor around all the new large corporations, truckstops to exit 33. There was even discussion about annexing Walker Valley into the city but it was determined that the extra tax burden wouldnt help the school at all. But tax you more? Oh yeah baby, no problem there! Pile it on! Anyone concerned? Anyone awake yet?

Why are our county elected officials not concerned that the city is eating up your property…..exactly, MORE MONEY, MORE REVENUE! That one factor that will close the lips of a politician faster than a serving of the ex in laws mince meat pie!

Think it will stop at the Mouse Creek Corridor, exit 33, Wacker and Amazon, nope! The Dream of our City mayor is to have a Metropolitan government! All inclusive, one big tax generating machine to the Chattanooga border! “Only 5 more miles” from Cleveland to Chattanooga! Ooltewah is the only thing stopping them and I’m sure they are contemplating how to break that up to benefit both Mayor Littlefield and our mayors! Think I’m kidding? Call and ask about this annexation that is being forced on you, I dare you!

Now be prepared for a smoke chimney to be neatly placed behind you and copious amounts of smoke generated and blown up your backside, but call and ask! Call and ask your City or County Commisioners? Heck even call your State Representatives Kevin Brooks or Eric Watson! I personally doubt they will tell you much about it, but I promise you they “may have heard about it!”

Get informed Bradley County, the current elected leaders are complacent, been there too long! Are all about the money and are blind to your needs! Step up and get involved! Wake up from your slumber!

This is where Clint works his magic! Read with caution! I warn you it gets a little…..steamy! Hopefully by now you are coming along with me as I reveal the Eastwood mystique! You are perhaps now awakening, just read the paper, hair tassled and still in your PJs, preparing to embark on your day and are still wiping the sleep from the corners of your eyes! While sipping that first cup of java, peering like steel over the brim through the steam, ask your bride with a Clint Eastwood scowl, “what the heck are the people that were elected by us doing to my community and why!” Resist the urge to look away! Then take a bite of your biscuit and gravy, while clearing the residue from the corner of your mouth, one eye closed, look up at your bride with a mocking growl in the back of your throat and repeat after me…this may make your throat…. But say to her….. “Baby, I think something is awry and sideways in our town!” “It’s high time we speak up and stop this madness!” Just over the rim of your coffee cup, steam now collecting on your forehead, manage to open one eye and allow it to twinkle a little bit, she now begins to squirm a bit in her chair as memories of you 25 years younger, edgier and more robust than ever jump through her head and she winks a flirtatious approval of her reformed man now standing up for what he believes in!

As the heat in the room continues to rise, resist the urge to pull your nose off the brim of your coffee cup, because its working for you! From the steam you continue to stare through while now connecting with her soul, she’s putty in your hands! Relate to her ever so gingerly the scope of this forced annexation on your budget and your lifestyle together! The weekend shopping trips, the occasional jaunt to the Smokies, that little extra socked away for a rainy day, college fund ?……done, no more! Those pipe dreams just went down the drain with the bath water! That extra money is now being turned over to the government! The smile may go away but she will be proud of her man for at least sounding good over breakfast, but the stark obvious reality remains the same!

These characters are going to do whatever they want regardless of the encroachment on your life! The mighty dollar speaks louder than the call of humanity! This scenario though lighthearted should scare you, it did me but it provided for one interesting morning!

Its not what you think! Get your minds out of the gutter! My wife fell off her chair, flipped the table and I ended up with a tender nose and a lap of hot greasy gravy! Ouch! At least for a moment I thought I was Clint and she was starting to respond……a little!

The first paragraph should really concern anyone in Bradley County! Impromptu meeting to discuss annexation and oh yeah a flood plain study, spending another 300,000.00 dollars of your hard earned cash to define open space of course!

City to launch Mouse Creek corridor annexation
by DAVID DAVIS, Managing Editor

The Cleveland City Council passed two impromptu resolutions Monday that directed staff to begin the process of annexation and invite Bradley County to participate in a countywide floodplain study.

The Council voted unanimously to direct staff to begin the process of annexing the Mouse Creek corridor all the way to Cleveland Utilities Waste Water Treatment Plant on the Hiwassee River.

The corridor includes Wacker Polysilicon North America, Amazon.com, East Coast Lighting Distribution Center and two truck stops at Exit 33 of Interstate 75.

The Mouse Creek corridor would have to be brought into the urban growth boundary in two pieces. The first annexation could not take place before 2013.

The process of annexation begins by expanding the city’s urban growth boundary which is about a six-month process. The area is attractive to the city because municipalities are required to provide services to incorporated areas and sewer service is the most expensive cost up front. However, that service is available to residents along the existing sewer main between the city and the treatment plant.

“Any area already served by sewer is obviously not going to impact like it would if we took a subdivision they couldn’t get sewer to,” said Development and Engineering Services Director Jonathan Jobe. “When we did our study on Mouse Creek Road, there was talk about another interstate exit where you could alleviate a lot of traffic off Mouse Creek Road and that would be something you’d want to initiate.”

The city includes an area of 28.77 square miles. By law, the Council can annex 25 percent of the city’s area every two years, which amounts to about seven square miles.

The last major expansion of the urban growth boundary and annexation occurred in October 2010 when the city extended its boundary southward to bring in the proposed 343-acre Spring Branch Industrial Park. Also included in the expanded growth boundary was the 357-acre Cleveland Municipal Airport alongside Michigan Avenue Road and Dry Valley Road. The Council only recently completed annexation of the 357-acre municipal airport.

Hardwick Farm, which includes about 678 acres between Stuart Road and Tasso Lane, and from North Lee Highway up to Urbane Road is scheduled to be incorporated into the city in February 2012. The plan does not include existing subdivisions between the farm and Urbane Road.

The other impromptu resolution simply directs City Manager Janice Casteel to invite Bradley County to participate in a countywide floodplain study. The city has allocated $300,000 to fund the local share of a floodplain study in the city.

On other regular agenda items, the Council passed the following by a 7-0 vote:

– Resolution 2011-107 approved an additional and amended contract with Warren Moberg and David Watts, for providing services to meet the requirements of the Targeted Crime Reduction Grant.

n Ordinance 2011-26 to rezone 357 acres of the new airport property at 4505 Michigan Avenue Road N.E. and 261 Dry Valley Road N.E. from Rural Agriculture (RA) to Light Industrial (IL).

– Ordinance 2011-27 for rezoning a property yet to be addressed on Michigan Avenue Road Industrial Highway (IH) to High Density Single and Multi-family Dwelling District (R3).

– Ordinance 2011-28 for rezoning a property yet to be addressed on Peach Orchard Hill Drive from Single Residential (RI) to Low Density Residential (R2).

– Ordinance 2011-29 to amend the Zoning Code’s downtown parking requirements.

– Ordinance 2011-30 to amend PUD8 on 25thStreet/APD40 to change the number of units in Phase II from 144 to 112. (p. 24-38).

U.S. EDA Supports Economic Development Planning in Bradley County, TN with $ 200,000 of your tax dollars!

In Agenda 21 on September 18, 2011 at 8:03 AM

Once again the Mayor of Cleveland has sneaked one past the Citizens of Cleveland and Bradley County in the amount of $ 125,000.00 with a matching or at least 50 percent match from the citizens of Bradley County for fulfillment of a Sustainable Development Project Plan.

This is only to fund the plan, the Comprehensive Plan, which equates to a bunch of pieces of paper and it is going to cost, or should I say it has already cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars.

This Socialist plan is a part of the United Nations Agenda 21 plan to re work every town in the United States to eventually control you and your property!

This article was found on a name search of Mr Rowland, to my knowledge this “press release” was never released locally or reported in any paper. This article was found on the US EDA website a subsidiary of the Department of Commerce!

Open your eyes Bradley County there is a bigger force than we can imagine driving the agenda in Bradley County and it is sinister and evil!

Our elected leaders are dancing with some very diabolical characters on the State, Federal and International levels. The Devils dance is methodical, consistent and is inhabiting our County by willing participants, the madness must stop!

Send up prayers for our leaders who are being blinded the desire for the dollar. (The article below)

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) today announced a $125,000 grant to the city of Cleveland, the city of Charleston and Bradley County, Tenn., to help boost comprehensive planning efforts critical to the region’s future sustainable growth.

“The Bradley region is attracting dynamic companies and has tremendous potential to continue to grow and become an economic engine in Tennessee,” said U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development John Fernandez. “This EDA grant will help implement the critical planning that is needed to foster sustainable development for the region.”

“At present, Volkswagen, Wacker Chemie, and Amazon.com have plans to hire thousands of workers and invest millions in private investment. The comprehensive planning effort will guide the response to the issues and concerns that arise from this unprecedented growth,” said Tom Rowland, Mayor of Cleveland, Tennessee.

The EDA grant will facilitate development of a comprehensive plan for sustainable growth in Bradley County, which is experiencing a transformation due to the influx of new industry. The regional plan will target three areas projected to contain the most densely populated growth, including in Cleveland’s central business core, and will support and promote economic revitalization, energy efficient transportation options, and regional economic competitiveness.
