This time it is pretty weird. Apparently there was a UN resolution from 1992 called Agenda 21 that was written to encourage sustainable development, environmental regulation, and smart growth. Representative Glen Casada says, NOT IN MY BACKYARD!!!
WHEREAS, this United Nations Agenda 21 plan of radical so-called “sustainable development” views the American way of life of private property ownership, single-family homes, private car ownership and individual travel choices, and privately owned farms all as destructive to the environment; and
WHEREAS, according to the United Nations Agenda 21 policy, social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment which would be accomplished by socialist/communist redistribution of wealth; and
WHEREAS, according to the United Nations Agenda 21 policy, national sovereignty is deemed a social injustice; now, therefore,
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE ONE HUNDRED SEVENTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, THE SENATE CONCURRING, that the General Assembly recognizes the destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21 and hereby exposes to the public and public policymakers the dangerous intent of the plan.
hometown hero and ex-Tiger / ex-NBA star Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway coached a poor kids basketball team to (spoiler alert) victory. Along the way he taught them how to make their beds, and encouraged them that if they follow their dreams, they too may one day end up in a rich suburb of Memphis. Good luck little boys!
