Tennessee bans Lizard People from serving on School Boards

by Rod Williams, March 27, 2024- Not really. I just made that up. 

The Tennessee Senate however did pass a bill to protect us from chem trails. Of course, at this point it is not a law. It would have to pass the House and be signed by the governor or pass the House and become law without his signature to become law. That it passed the Senate however is cringe-worthy and embarrassing. 

This is from the language of the bill: "The intentional injection, release, or dispersion, by any means, of chemicals, chemical compounds, substances, or apparatus within the borders of this state into the atmosphere with the express purpose of affecting temperature, weather, or the intensity of the sunlight is prohibited."

The proposed ban would not be a bad thing to do if chem trails were really real. Just as I would favor banning lizard people from serving on school boards if there really were lizard people, I could support this bill if chem trails were a real thing.  However, if releasing chemicals or compounds into the atmosphere could combat the global warming gases put into the atmosphere, I could be persuaded it was a good thing to do if it had been fully vetted and proven harmless and effective. However, it is not happening. It is not real.

The bill does not say for certain that chem trails are real. This is what part of the "whereas" section of the bill says:
WHEREAS, it is documented that the federal government or other entities acting on the 
federal government's behalf or at the federal government's request may conduct geoengineering experiments by intentionally dispersing chemicals into the atmosphere, and 
those activities may occur within the State of Tennessee; and

The italicizing above is mine.  This language does not excuse this bill. In fact, this is confusing. How can something be "documented" that "may" exist? This would be like saying, "It is well documented that lizard people, if they exist, are seeking to get elected to school boards." This is pure pandering to the crazies. I don't know for sure that it is pandering. Maybe the sponsors really believe it. I don't know which would be worse. 

If you are not familiar with chem trails, you are not connected to the right wing of the political spectrum. If you look up into the sky and see the water vapor trailing an airplane, chem trail theorist do not believe it is water vapor, but chemical trails.  I have had otherwise sane and reasonable people try to talk to me about chem trails at Republican or conservative functions. I just try not to roll my eyes and I just change the subject or move away. 

How did the right get so nutty?  I don't know. I have always believed conservatives were the smart people. I believed conservatives were the adults in the room.  It was people of the left who could believe that America's drug problem was the result of a CIA plot to kill Black people for some reason. It was the left that could believe that Katrina was a result of the government blowing up the dikes to flood New Orleans. It was the left, so blinded by hatred of their country, that they could believe any nutty conspiracy theory about our government. 

Now it is people on the right who will believe the most bizarre of things. You may recall when some people believed Govenor Bill Haslam was attempting to impose Sharia Law on Tennessee and when some Republican legislators believed a mop sink in the legislative office building was a Muslim foot bath. You may recall when many on the right believed that everything from shady sidewalks to reintroducing wolves into the wild was part of nefarious plot called Agenda 21, intended to kill 98% of the world's population by poisoning them with aspartame and fluoride.  There is nothing too bizarre not to be believed. The likes of Q-Anon and Alex Jones and promoters of the most bizarre of groundless theories find fertile ground on the right. 

It is perplexing, disgusting, and disturbing.
