Tennessee has recently been in the spotlight for the state's financial crisis. Picture this: a bunch of anti-tax, middle class Libertarians & a couple of corporate-sponsored, right wing talk show hosts ganging up against a group of pro-income tax minorities & Greens & other people representing the poor at a protest. Nothing violent, except for the outcome: no graded income tax, a temporary state government shut down, a few school closings (including a state-run boarding school for orphans close by to one of my friends... where those orphans went, no body knows... & the lot the orphanage/school used to be on is going to be used to build a club house for a newly constructed gated community comprised of multimillion dollar homes), a few schools (including state universities) dropping "extra" programs, & "sin" & sales tax increases. This will affect the poor more than the rich in so many ways...
