Yes, no more taxes! Who cares if adding $1.00 to our cable bill will save the jobs of 1,363 of mothers and fathers trying to support and care for their family. We don't need foresters to fight wildfires, let the woods burn! Higher education, who needs it? Children? Let them take care of 'emselves! Law Enforcement? I say every man for himself! How dare Bredesen ask me to pay $1 more for my cable to help the people who help our communities?

COME ON PEOPLE! It's $1 that the state is being sued for anyway!!! Let's look at the bigger picture.
