Lottery and gambling aren’t happening…

This was never about lottery/gaming it was about BP money as a “last resort”.

Bentley is out of touch…

I love it when legislators say this…

All laws do this. Every. Single. One.

A former legislator thinks this is a jobs bill…

But the only winners in a new lottery/gambling bill is the state and the operators of the gambling halls. That money will come right from those poor communities.

The Trumpology…

What is he apologizing for?

Trick question, after the media extorts an apology, it will now claim it is not enough.

The script is the same with every Republican.

Elect Hillary Clinton and she will stop (her) corruption!

The media told us Paul Manafort had to go because he was involved in lobbying foreign governments

Donald Trump’s campaign chairman helped a pro-Russian governing party in Ukraine secretly route at least $2.2 million in payments to two prominent Washington lobbying firms in 2012, and did so in a way that effectively obscured the foreign political party’s efforts to influence U.S. policy.

The revelation, provided to The Associated Press by people directly knowledgeable about the effort, comes at a time when Trump has faced criticism for his friendly overtures to Russian President Vladimir Putin. It also casts new light on the business practices of campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Under federal law, U.S. lobbyists must declare publicly if they represent foreign leaders or their political parties and provide detailed reports about their actions to the Justice Department. A violation is a felony and can result in up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Trump shook up his campaign organization Wednesday, putting two new longtime Republican conservative strategists as chief executive officer and campaign manager. It was unclear what impact the shakeup would have on Manafort, but he retains his title as campaign chairman.

Hilariously, that’s the whole premise of the Clinton Foundation AND John Podesta (who works for Clinton) was involved.

Will anyone care?

Congressman Aderholt joins the Trump team…

Candidate for Madison City Council channels Governor Robert Bentley…

The Polish Hammer jumps in to the Huntsville Board of Education race…

Ryan Lochte situation is the best thing to happen at the Olympics, it’s the only thing that has made me care about them BUT the “INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT” stuff is moronic…

No kidding? Taxes hurt people who pay them and lower purchasing power…

This is shocking!

Why is this parent mad at everyone BUT her kid?

Monday, Nichole Stone’s son Parker didn’t get off the school bus when he was supposed to. When the concerned mother tried to call the company that runs Huntsville City School’s buses, she was directed to a voicemail. She eventually called Huntsville Police, who pulled the bus over and returned Parker home.

Stone is also angry because the school system claims her son was asleep on the bus, and that’s why he missed his stop. She says that’s not true.

“Pretty sure if they pull up the footage, they can determine that was not accurate,” said Stone.

That’s not Nichole’s biggest concern, however.  “It has to do with the communication between the bus, and the parents, and the school system when our children are on board,” she said.

Stone says it’s not acceptable for Durham School Services to be unreachable at any time, but especially during an emergency. Huntsville City Schools Superintendent agrees.

“Unfortunately, Durham’s T-1 line was down, so she couldn’t reach them. She was probably trying to reach somebody at the school system, didn’t have luck there either. So we’re already reviewed all that,” said Casey Wardynski.

The superintendent says a solution to this problem is already in the works.  He said, “I’ve asked Durham to make an app for cell phones, computers, where parents can do an urgent text message to Durham that cuts through some of the routine calls so they go right to the top of the cue. My child’s missing, that kind of thing.”



About that Latino outreach…

“The Latino voting population could be 8 percent but they don’t all vote at that rate,” said Stacey Abrams, the Democratic state House minority leader who also leads the nonpartisan New Georgia Project. Her group has spent the past 12 years registering minority voters, especially the state’s African American population, but is now partnering with other organizations to register the fast-growing immigrant populations in the Atlanta metro area.

“If you just hold steady and increase just a little bit in those populations, add that to the African American vote and add it to the white progressive vote, that’s your victory,” Abrams said. “To the extent investment comes to Georgia, and particularly the work we’re able to do down-ballot, you not only elect Hillary Clinton, you activate voters in those pockets of minority voters where you can take state House races.”

Nearly half of Georgia’s 1 million Latinos are undocumented immigrants, and civic leaders pushing for broader Hispanic civic engagement said that focusing on Trump’s comments about building a Mexican border wall or keeping out Muslim immigrants is likely to resonate.

“When either campaign mentions something about immigration, Latinos in Georgia have been paying attention,” said Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the nonpartisan Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO).

Someone might want to start discussing this?

Doesn’t that tidbit sound like some thing Trump should be hammering home right now? It’s right in his wheelhouse.
