Just wanted to let you know – earlier today I received my “Sequester Survival Pack” from the White House.

It contained a parachute, an 'Obama Hope & Change' bumper sticker, a 'Bush's Fault' poster, a 'Blame Boehner' poster, a "Tax the Rich' poster, an application for unemployment, an application for food stamps, a prayer rug, a letter of assignation of debt to my grandchildren and a machine to blow smoke up my ask.

All directions were in Spanish.

Keep an eye out. Yours should arrive soon.

Re: debt assignation. I get it, but that was going to happen no matter WHO won the presidential elections of 2008 and 2012.

Republicans have controlled local politics forever, why is the unemployment rate in Greene County one of the highest in the state and way above the national average?

Five possible reasons:

1) U.S. Government did away with tobacco production, thereby killing local market and Austin Company, one of our largest employers.

2) U.S. Government allowed electronics production to move to Mexico for cost advantages, and below cost selling of Chinese televisions which killed the largest employer ever in Greene County, Magnavox.

3) Milk production from local farms pretty well ceased due to cost inefficiencies of picking up milk at many small county dairies, thereby killing Pet Milk.

4) Chain stores moving to Greeneville, such as Walmart, Lowe's, etc. meaning lower staffing requirements in one location, as opposed to having many small businesses serving the community. This takes money out of the community, and sends it to places like Benton, Arkansas.

5) Mismanagement of Greene County Bank by incompetent Board of Directors, which reduced the wealth of local stockholders by many , many millions. Some older residents lived off of and spent millions of dollars of dividends locally.
