In Tennessee, a Department of Environment and Conservation deputy director told some Maury County residents that unfounded complaints about their water quality, may be considered an “act of terrorism.” One might ask, is concern with fluoride in the water supply, a ‘Unfounded Complaint’?
Or how about being concerned with toxic substances such as PCB’s ending up in water, is that ‘Unfounded’? I would think not, considering that toxic PCB’s were found in nearby Alabama city, Anniston’s water supply. Either way, the right to free speech is guaranteed by the Constitution, and anyone who wishes to prosecute someone over that, even with a slick fear based disguise of a ‘terrorist attack’, should legally be removed from their office.
I think simply the occurrence of an event like this, a public official displaying a tone of such arrogance and failed intimidation, accurately illustrates this current time in our era of history the time when the people finally stand up, demand their rights, will say what they will, and use their rights no matter what. Joycelene Johns, resident of Mount Pleasant in Tennessee, says ” I will drink it [the water], but I pray before each sip.” The meeting was organized by State Rep.
Sheila Butt, R-Columbia, and attended by residents and local officials. Sheila Butt was shocked at the statement as the residents were, said “I think that we need to be very careful with how we use the words ‘terrorist’ and ‘terrorism, I thought it was out of context. That did not apply to anything that we were discussing at the meeting.” It appears that every time the government or government associates or agencies mess up, or slip and reveal how they do nothing good for the people, or make pathetic attempts to be intimidating or ensure their jobs are easy, it always blows up in their faces.
It becomes more and more obvious that the government of the united states does far more harm than good, and there seems to be a raging fire of ‘scandals’ going on lately. The truth, i believe is, that the entire system of government is scandalous. The constitutional rights of the citizens of the United States may seem to be barely alive, but indeed even the mainstream media can’t hide the dysfunctional nature of government right now, and a lot more people of all walks of life as of late are realizing they must defend their rights.
It is not difficult, and it is necessary — the Awakening is well on its way. It has been said that Brazil and Turkey’s citizens care more about liberties than Americans these days, so who will (peacefully) stand up for liberties in America, and protest in the streets? “
