Mayor Littlefield's “Give Our Georgia Friends a Drink Day” proclamation is the act of a thoughtless jackass and embarrasses Chattanooga.
"The city of Chattanooga, facing a possible Georgia land grab as part of an effort to get access to the Tennessee River, is sending a truck load of bottled water to Atlanta. Mayor Ron Littlefield said the water will be delivered on Wednesday by his aide Matt Lea wearing a coonskin cap."
Drought is serious business. Farmers and those who depend on them are being forced into bankruptcy and losing their homes. Workers in agriculture are losing their livelihoods. People who eat are having to pay higher prices for food. Taxpayers are having to carry some of the costs.
Sure, the Georgia "land grab" is a stunt and surely no one takes it seriously.
But mocking the suffering of people in a natural disaster is shameful.
Too bad he can't go back in time and have a laugh at these people:
No, time travel isn't perfected yet- here's a hoot from right now!
Wait, even better! Send Matt Lea and his cap to giggle at Dennis Bragg of Madison County. A real knee slapper!
