Calculators....they will say "what is that"??? Don't you think we can add and subtract...LOL!! Our answer will be " No obviously you need to check your figures and listen to what everyone is trying to tell you, they don't add up correctly. SO GET THE CALCULATOR OUT!! Its the square thing with numbers that has addition and subtraction symbols on it!! Oh yeah its not your smart phone connected to your hip! Thanks to all Juvenile Judges, State reps., and State Senators that are battling for the young men at Taft that are real people just like you are the employees and there families!
The people of Bledsoe, Van Buren, Cumberland, Rhea, Grundy, White, Sequatchie counties have been lied to by so called professional, political, appointees who have used deceit to fabricate figures concerning Taft Youth Development Center that don"t even come close to the truth. When people do not respond to these lies, these alleged professional politicians and there appointees get away with destroying our basic forms of government. Allowing people to get elected by buying there way into office is not government by the people but by the best that money can buy. Today's government is not to help the people of these Tennessee Counties that have a high unemployment rate , but rather to help them become unemployed so that they can help bigger cities get these jobs. We should not let people who have no experience at running juvenile institutions tell lies to close and institution that out preforms any institution in the state! WE should not allow Commissioner O'Day to close Taft Youth Center on fabricated lies that she has given to the public and Governor and other elected officials, WE should call her out and make her TELL the people of these Counties where she got HER figures and WHY she adamantly supports them. Obviously you don't have to know "simple math" to become a Commissioner in the State of Tennessee!! In closing if Taft is closed these students that will be turned back to other institutions, which cannot handle these students because they are afraid of them, they will eventually either escape or be released with NO rehabilitation, NO high school diploma, NO GED'S, NO vocational training and NO hope for a future!! Time will prove that every word in this article to be true, all Taft employees will be gone and Taft is closed, when they are destroying other institutions there will be not Taft Youth Development Center to send them to. The tax payers will be stuck with paying for the rebuilding of other juvenile institutions, O'Day will gone getting paid millions for privatizing all institutions in the State of Tennessee!! Look at her agenda before you make the final decision, but don't believe the lies that she speaks and be sure to check her addition and subtraction!!
