Some Fries With Your Stupid, Tennessee?

The cow contemplates her existence and asks the Universe: “Who the eff is Devin Nunes?”

Guys, what’s the difference between a cow and a Tennesseean?

Tennessee won’t incentivize COVID shots but pays to vax cows

The Republican governor of Tennessee, Bill Lee, who is a rancher is all in favor of herd immunity for livestock, but not so much for people.

Tennessee’s Herd Health program began in 2019 under Lee, whose family business, Triple L Ranch, breeds Polled Hereford cattle. The state currently reimburses participating farmers up to $1,500 for vaccinating their herds, handing out $492,561 over the past two fiscal years, according to documents from the Tennessee Agriculture Department.

Well, he might have a conflict of interest there, mightn’t he? What about the people?

In an emailed reply to a question about the contrast to incentivizing vaccination for cattle, spokesperson Casey Black wrote, “Tennesseans have every incentive to get the COVID-19 vaccine – it’s free and available in every corner of the state with virtually no wait. While a veterinarian can weigh in on safely raising cattle for consumption, the state will continue to provide human Tennesseans with COVID-19 vaccine information and access.”

But keep those Ameros rolling into Lee’s family ranch, m’kay?

    Makes me wonder what else is more important than people in TN besides cattle. Wait. Never mind. I don’t think I want to know.
