Senate Joins House in Condemning UNís ĎAgenda 21í (TN) ^ | 4/24/2012 | Joe White

Posted on 04/25/2012 7:11:41 AM PDT by wheresmyusa

The Tennessee Senate added its voice to the state House in condemning the United Nations’ ‘Agenda 21’ on Tuesday. The program is an environmental initiative meant to encourage sustainable development. A majority of Tennessee lawmakers now describe it as destructive.

The United Nations Agenda 21 has never been endorsed by the U.S. as a treaty, but it has become a hot button issue among grass roots conservatives who see the United Nations as the first step to so-called one-world government.

Resolution sponsor Mike Bell, a Republican from McMinn County, held up a black loose leaf folder several inches thick.

“There is over 300 pages, like I said, contained in this document. I can best describe this as zoning rules on steroids.”

But Chattanooga Democrat Andy Berke says the resolution implies that simple environmental planning is a conspiracy to remove Americans’ property rights.

“It seems to me that planning and forethought and trying to preserve our Tennessee way of life is exactly what we should be doing.”

Berke pointed to the planning which the city of Chattanooga had to do when it lured the large Volkswagen plant to the region.

The measure has no practical effect – sponsor Mike Bell called it a ‘message’ to Congress.

The U.S. government is trying to stop children from working on farms so when today's elderly farmers die, THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE FORCED TO TAKE OVER ALL FARMS BECAUSE THERE WILL BE NO ONE TO RUN THEM.

And perhaps the push to drive electric cars is so that the government can stop it’s citizens from driving by turning off the electricity. Or the ‘black boxes’, for example.. God only knows what the hell those things will do.

We’d better get our emails out to our reps pronto - NOW - let them be in their inbox in the morning.

LOOK at that map!

READ the list of things that will be controlled - EVERY aspect of every minute of our lives. And Romney - if he’s elected, won’t do a thing to reverse it.

We have a small chance right now - with elections coming up, to warn our reps that we’ll be replacing them if they allow this thru’.

Take 5 minutes tonight to send your emails - or take the very real chance we will all be in slavery within a year. And you can bet we won’te be chatting/posting on FR - probably not even have Internet access.

Agenda 21 masquerades under many names - LEARN them

Sustainable Communities
Open Space

on this site - scroll down for a list of some of the towns - lised by state - where Agenda 21 has already being implemented - this needs updating

The genesis of AGenda 21

People across the board are waking up and fighting this

If you want to be on or off the Agenda 21 ping list, please notify me by Freepmail. It is a relatively low volume list in which we have been exploring the UN Agenda21 and related topics. We have collected our studies with threads, links, and discussions on the Agenda 21 thread which can be found here:
