"The only way you'll get my water is if its dripping through my cold dead hands"

Two Georgia legislators want Tennessee to share water from its river with Atlanta.

Republican Senator David Shafer of Duluth and Republican Representative Harry Geisinger of Roswell say they will introduce legislation that would in effect move Georgia's northwest boundary a mile north. That would mean a section of the Tennessee River would flow into Georgia.

My rifle's clean. Let's meet 'em at the border and extend Tennessee to right around Marietta.
Then we'll sell water to Atlanta and they'll learn to like it.

share? share? as in give?

share? share? as in give? are you kidding me?

Will they "share" their natural resources with Florida? the gate revenue from Hartsfield Airport? Will they "share" the Braves?

Can we get Campfield or someone to introduce legislation moving the state border one mile south of Atlanta? Naah, Atlanta doesn't have that much to offer. Forget it.

Exactly!

Florida's looking into an offshore desalination system.

Figures this episode of intellectual perdition arose from the vast and decaying wasteland we know as the Republican Mind.

Now let's see...
If I'm not mistaken, Georgia has some coastline somewhere between South Carolina and Florida.

So, I have only two questions for these legislative geniuses:

1)What part of "drought across the South"

and...

2)Desalinization Plants

...don't you understand?

Georgia might not has as big

Georgia might not has as big a water problem is Atlanta didn't sprawl all the way to Chattanooga. Which it didn't need to do.

The correct response

The only correct response from Tennessee has to be:
"Take a hike, but not in our Smokies."
