Wasting time on a 20 year old non-binding UN document when important issues such as the state’s economy, jobs, education, health, among others topics remain fragile is disheartening.
There is a vast disconnect about the important issues that concern Tennesseans and the frivolous crap some of our extreme lawmakers sponsor and address. This is one more example of why it is important to exercise your right to vote to avoid future election cycle results of electing members ill-equipped in the serious business of leading and shaping government agenda and laws. Tennesseans deserve better from both parties!
