  • Last week we played a couple clips from Virginia, things have escalated there

    • The National School Board Association wrote a letter to Biden on September 29th that says public school teachers “are under immediate threat” and asks for “immediate assistance” to protect students and teachers from “physical violence” at the hands of domestic terrorists who take the form of concerned parents.

    • In a memo to the FBI on Monday, Attorney General Merrick Garland wrote that the Justice Department will launch an effort to stop what he called called “a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation’s public schools.”

  • The excuse for this was a parent that was arrested at a Loudon County school board meeting on June 22 when the board was proposing “Trans Rules” and stated noone has been assulted in the school.

    • The man’s daughter was sexually assaulted on May 28 by a boy in the girls bathroom.

Hamilton County Tax Levies

  • Use the Hamilton County Auditor webpage to get exactly how much the levies will cost you

    • Issue 1 – Huge 4.51 mill Levy

      • Almost $110 per $100k value of home

      • Text says for for “the purpose of supplementing the general fund to provide support for children services and the care and placement of children”

        • The fact that it is going to the “General Fund” makes this suspicious

      • This is in addition to the “Children Services” Levy that recently passed

    • Issue 29 – Park levy

      • $33 per $100k home value

      • In addition to the levies most townships already have

Evolution of the Democrat/Republican Party

  • On the range of complete government control (left) to complete personal freedom (right)

    • The US Constitution is pretty far to the right, but did specify limited, enumerated powers

    • Originally both parties were on the right, near to the US Constitution.

    • With the “New Deal” and the “Great Society” and “The War on Poverty”, the Democrats have marched further and further to Big Government Control

    • With Obama and now Biden, the modern democratic party is pretty close to the total government control of Communism.

  • The modern Republican party stops just short of full socialism with nearly the same enthusiasm for spending and regulations.

  • By definition, “bipartisan” now means move to the left
