The Tallahatachie Bridge Solution

Whereas, proposed legislation to address all these sexual relations, procreative or otherwise, that are going on right under our very eyes, or worse, in places we can not see them, that are vexing certain members of venerated state legislatures, whose efforts today to outlaw the biological process of reproduction as practiced by certain members of our society have fallen short of that goal; and
Whereas, further efforts to harass, embarrass or publically humiliate these members of society into stopping said activity, even after they have been called out by the esteemed, wise radio media, whose knowledge of such matters is far greater and whose opinions far outweigh those of these certain society members; and
Whereas, while legislatures pass laws that require said societal members to undergo legislatively necessary medical procedures, even as laws are passed to encourage other members of our society to grow into situations that encourage said activity outlined in Paragraph One above; and
Whereas, there seems to be no legislative way to get these certain members of society to simply knock it off, short of ordering them to move back into their parents’ homes, where they would be subject to the rules of the household established by their dear, departed grandmother, who, of course, never, ever, engaged in such behavior, except for that one night in 1957 when she and her Vassar classmates, along with several sailors, closed a few bars in Scollay Square in Boston, which of course caused consternation, because Boston’s Puritan Founders, really, really discouraged that sort of thing, even though they believed the Biblical mandate to “go forth and multiply,” especially after the winter where half of them died, and if they did not go forth and multiply, they would have been wiped out and history would have been altered; and
Whereas, the winter of our sexual discontent calls for bold, decisive legislative action, no matter how far it is divorced from reality, to end all this screwing around, because, OMG, don’t these certain members of society understand that we as legislators know everything, and if we want to, we can make the lives of these certain society members hell until the legislation is overturned or we are voted out of office, whichever comes first, but the damage would be done nonetheless, which is what we intended all along; and
Whereas, herein is proposed the “Tallahatachie Bridge Solution,” offered with all due respect to songwriter Bobbie Gentry, to solve once and for all what to do with certain members of society who act in certain manners that are offensive to ourselves, even if we do not actually believe they are, but political expediency is after all, manifest; and
Whereas, beginning immediately upon passage of this measure, certain members of society must be called to dinner by their mother, who yells “y’all remember to wipe your feet,” after choppin’ cotton; and
Whereas, dinner table discussion must return to the subject of Billie Joe MacAllister, who was seen by Brother Taylor with a representative of certain members of society, and they “was throwin’ something off the Tallahatachie bridge;” and
Whereas, said throwin’ should be followed by a discussion that “nothin’ ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge, And now Billie Joe MacCallister’s jumped off the Tallahatachie Bridge;” and
Whereas, said jumping by Billie Joe MacCallister is followed by pestilence and death visited upon said family, after “a year has come and gone,” and said certain member of society must “spend a lot of time pickin’ flowers up on Choctaw Ridge, And drop them into the muddy waters off the Tallahatachie Bridge;” and
Whereas, the subsequent visit of death and pestilence upon said family is proof of the evil of the ways as outlined in Paragraph One above, and vengeance, legislative or otherwise soon follows; and
Whereas, because in the learned opinion of this legislature, if we cannot score enough political points with this reactionary path, we will demean the lives of certain members of society, because they clearly do not seem to get the point that their engagement in certain activities as described in Paragraph One above, can only result in something being dropped off the Tallahatachie Bridge, including Billie Joe MacCallister; and
Whereas, said activities are distasteful to us in a politically posturing way, as are union organizing, equal voter rights and the minimum wage, we are taking this opportunity to pass as much bad legislation as possible because many of us won’t be back this away again; and
Whereas, if you have the power and do not use it, what is the point of creating all those safe legislative and Congressional districts in the first place,

  17. Dorris says:

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and all.

    However think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and video
    clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Excellent blog!

    • Hi, thank for reading… I plan on making some changes to the presentation of the blog shortly., probably after my book, “The Swamps of Jersey” is published…I’ll need rthe site to be more commercial and vivid at that time.

  18. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Finding the time
    and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I
    say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get anything done.

    The relation between two countries is not cordial but that
    air of antagonism has never stopped or forced any business from withdrawing any of their
    business initiatives. It also has LED flash that
    illuminates when the need arises. The above information helps you to choose the better one that suits your requirements.

    Greetings! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.

    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Many thanks!

  29. more says:

    Great information. Lucky me I ran across your blog by chance (stumbleupon).
    I’ve book marked it for later!

  30. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  31. Sylvia says:

    Generally I don’t read post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do it! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, quite nice post.

    Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Many thanks

  34. Excellent blog post, I have saved this webpage so ideally I will discover a lot more on this subject in the foreseeable future!

  35. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    • I understand your confusion and concerns… that’s where was before I did this and honestly I’m not all that more technically advanced than I was a year ago.. I literally went to Google and typed in “blogging” and ended up at WordPress…the initial cost was $25…and for that price there are many choices of designs they have created … Pick a design that you like … and think about user friendliness… make it easy for readers to find stuff… Ive been told photos make a lot of difference…but donm;t have a lot and I don’t want use canned photos… Good Luck… ya just need to sort of need to jump in

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!

  37. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your site. You have some really great articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Cheers!

  38. Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

  39. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. thanks a lot

  40. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

    • first I heard..but I had used Chrome for a while and then dropped it because it was incompatible with eveything else i was using and basically was a crappy IP…I went bck to IE and while it ain’t perfect, it works

  41. I’m curious to find out what blog system you are working with? I’m having some small security issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any solutions?

  42. simona leary says:

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  43. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Thanks!

  44. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

  45. Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you

  46. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this fantastic blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  47. Thanks, I have been searching for facts about this subject matter for ages and yours is the best I have located so far.

  48. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
