    Re: Tri-City Weekly Paper Executes Remnant Yuchi

    Muchan Bigwitch
    A local Tri City/Tn weekly paper did a three part story regarding the recognition attempt of the Remnant Yuchi Fake Tribe.
    The reporter, named Kevin Green, made many of the same points that all opposed have tried to make and from what I am told, had no "outside help" to come to common sense conclusions that this fake tribe is just that.
    He also concluded that this legislation puts Lee Vest and his cronies in charge of administering recognition criteria that he and his fake tribe could not meet. He stopped short of saying this was putting the fox in charge of the chicken coop and that this bill was all about hopes of money for the fake Indians.

    All in all, Mr Green did a great job exposing the belly of the beast. We may only hope that lots of Tennessee voters read the three part article and are prepared to express their concerns to the sponsors of such legislation.

    The Wind speaks that warriors are coming to make this a media event of epic porportions. These warriors cannot be intimidated, harrassed or coerced. They will tirelessly work to make sure that every Tennessee voter knows the truth about this and other fake Tennessee tribes.
    Sweet!!! RYN--Get out your ulcer meds and nerve pills!!

    It would be fabulous if Mr. Green's articles were also printed in the other large newspapers across Tennessee because the pending legislation WILL effect/affect each and EVERY taxpayer; and as such, each and every taxpayer deserves to know what happened and why - --->> and what legislators were involved and responsible!!!!

    having said that, i searched and searched for the articles and for Mr Green in the but couldn't find articles or reporter. ????

    Re: Tri-City Weekly Paper Executes Remnant Yuchi

    The weekly paper is called the Piney Bluff Gazette. It does not have an online edition and is primarily circulated by subscription in the Tri-Cities/Sullivan County, Tn. area.
    I have all three copies which were sent to me but it would take a great deal of time to transcribe all three articles here and besides, I am an amature typist pecking with one finger.

    Re: Tri-City Weekly Paper Executes Remnant Yuchi

    I think your writer should send his article to the news services such as Reuters and UPI. If he doesn't perhaps someone should forward the article for him.

    Re: Tri-City Weekly Paper Executes Remnant Yuchi

    Lee VEST is a german poor white trash wannabe ***** and have papers too prove IT along with his other bunch of sobs or again the only Yuchi are in OKLA, but you fake yoochees baboons keep trying to get ID in the land of jackson

    Re: Tri-City Weekly Paper Executes Remnant Yuchi

    it's scary to think that them *******s might actually have a chance!!! Legislators don't seem to care enough to get educated; they just wanna help what THEY think are 'underdogs' who're being picked on.

    unfruckin' real!!
