Democrats criticize trip to Arizona by Tennessee GOP lawmakers

State Sen. Eric Stewart, D-Belvidere, criticized a delegation of Republican legislators on Thursday for a scheduled trip to Phoenix on Friday to present Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer with a nonbinding resolution supporting the state’s toughest-in-the-nation law on immigration.

“Apparently Tennessee Republicans think political junkets to Arizona are more important than unemployment in their own districts,” Stewart said in a news release.

Among the GOP lawmakers slated to visit Arizona are Rep. Jim Cobb of Spring City, Sen. Bill Ketron of Murfreesboro, Rep. Joe Karr of Lascassas and Rep. Tony Shipley, from Kingsport.

“Apparently Tennessee Republicans think political junkets to Arizona are more important than unemployment in their own districts,” Stewart said in a news release. Of course they do! Plus, I'm sure they are all going to pay their own expenses for the trip too,huh?

I'm sure some of these guys need something to put on their resume come election. I hope they only got one way tickets because they probably could have hitched a ride back to Tennessee with the droves of illegals bailing out and headed our way thanks to the new AZ law. I guess our republican delegates didn't consider this possibility when they made the trek to support the law.

So, I guess Odummy thinks it's more important that his family vacation in Spain on the taxpayers' dime than it is to create jobs for the millions of still-unemployed.

As far as creating jobs for the millions of still unemployed,we should ask the "party of no" why there is no action on that issue.

Jan Brewer check this out !

The whole internet system here in the United States is run from a CIA office in Signal Mountain TN.

They also contract with the US Military the basic 250.000 MHRZ wave freqency that they run it on is very powerful. Also a short wave * Alpha Ditrot Radio * does the rest as a filter and acts as a firewall to stop an incoming scamp virus that might infect the main fame.

If you don't believe this check this file at the library of congress in Washington DC and the file is under the sub text ( Alpha Internet Computer System ) or AICS and the file number is.

Class C File Unclassified Route File # 25452-14547-03 Pages: 520 Index: 43 By: United States Army Intelligence Washington DC Dept: Computer internet division Intro By: Gen. Colin Powell Year: 1984

If you do get a chance to read it you will never allow a computer voting system like DIEBOT to take over the old fashion way of doing it by paper ballot.
