Hopefully it isn't locusts fleeing to Tennessee, would suck for them.

Yeah,  tell me about it:


Quote
Donald Kenneth Sundquist...served as the 47th Governor of Tennessee... .

Sundquist was born in Moline, Illinois,...  After graduating from Moline High School ... he attended Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, ...

...During his second term, Sundquist set out to raise more revenue for the state, which had traditionally been one of the lowest-tax jurisdictions in the country. He was concerned that the sales tax, which the state relied upon for much of its revenue, was too unstable, and prevented the state from competing with other Southern states in education and infrastructure... His tax reform plan therefore included a state income tax, the proposal of which had long been a third rail in Tennessee state politics. Many of his political allies turned against him, and anti-income tax street demonstrations were held in Nashville. In July 2001, demonstrators vandalized Sundquist's office, and broke windows in the state capitol when the legislature was considering the income tax measure...

Yup.  Like the old joke...an ordinary conservative in Minnesota is just another Democrat in Texas.

Though poor Texas is changing too...thanks to big city dwelling locusts.

There is sh*t everywhere.
