Is there a terrorism concern in Huntsville?




Trump releases a letter… Media calls BS.

The TV appearance gives the appearance of transparency, but the summary by Bornstein will fall far short of experts’ calls for detailed information about Trump’s health and medical history.

Hillary coughs for weeks, passes out, lies for days, releases a letter and the media believes her

Hillary Clinton released medical records on Wednesday providing new details about both her pneumonia diagnosis and general health — just hours after Donald Trump offered some new information about his own well being in a taped appearance on the “Dr. Oz Show.”

The dueling releases shed some new light on Clinton’s condition and added little to an already-thin amount of known details about Trump’s health.

A letter from Clinton’s doctor states that the Democratic presidential nominee last Friday was diagnosed with mild, non-contagious bacterial pneumonia. “She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest. She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States,” said Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s doctor.

Dr. Bardack also revealed she evaluated Clinton a week earlier, on Sept. 2 for a fever, congestion and fatigue.

“Over the next several days as she traveled, her congestion worsened and she developed a cough. She was advised to see me when she returned from her travels for further testing,” Dr. Bardack wrote. During the follow-up, a non-contrast chest CT scan revealed the pneumonia.

Hillary gets the benefit of the doubt, Trump does not.

Has she earned this gift with her honesty and forthrightness?

No bias here.


We all know Bill Clinton is still a terrible guy

You’ve never heard Colin Powell talk like this.

The former secretary of state and four-star Army general who has been in the national spotlight since he was Ronald Reagan’s national security advisor let loose on Hillary Clinton (“greedy, not transformational”), her husband Bill (still “dicking bimbos”), and Donald Trump (a “national disgrace”).

The frank, biting version of Powell made public is thanks to private emails that appeared on dcleaks.com, a mysterious repository for hacked information suspected to be of Russian origin. Powell’s office confirmed toThe New York Times that the emails were genuine.

Hillary has known it for decades and doesn’t care, it is all about being somebody and Bill was her path. She will allow anything to happen, she will do anything she needs to in order to get what she wants.

His criticism of Hillary Clinton, for example, reflects a skepticism that you would respect from a man who served in a Republican administration.

“Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris,” he wrote in one email.

Powell’s negative appraisal was also tempered by his personal relationship with the Democratic presidential nominee, whom he got to know when he served as Bill Clinton’s chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and later when she served as his successor at the State Department.

“I would rather not have to vote for her,” Powell wrote in 2014, “although she is a friend I respect.”

The media will fixate on the less damning criticism and him calling trump a disgrace but any fair observer knows this is more damning AND more newsworthy.

I actually deleted 75,000+ e-mails yesterday for no reason at all, seriously.

Here ya go Hampton Cove, hope you like some government subsidized housing

A new affordable housing community is now leasing to families with low-to-moderate income levels in the Huntsville area.

Atlanta-based TBG Residential and Neighborhood Concepts recently received a Certificate of Occupancy to operate Flint River Apartment Homes, a $10 million project off U.S. 431 at 388 Wade Road. The 100,000-square-foot development targets residents whose incomes are at or below 60 percent of the area median income for family size.

One bedroom units range from $494 to $690, two bedrooms $594 to $785, and three bedrooms $799 to $835. Neighborhood Concepts Executive Director Mary Ellen Judah said Flint River is an option for working families who struggle with today’s housing market.

“Low-to-moderate working families were hit hard during the 2008 recession and have had the most difficulty recovering,” she said. “As housing costs rise, these families struggle to find quality affordable housing in desirable neighborhoods.”

You paid for it…

The city provided a $385,000 loan to build Clarkston Square. Other funding sources included Low Income Housing Tax Credits, a HOME Loan from the Alabama Housing Finance Authority, and financing from Regions Bank.

Don’t worry, it will strengthen your community somehow.

Neighborhood Concepts is a nonprofit that strengthens communities by offering affordable housing and fostering economic opportunities. The group provides microloans to north Alabama small businesses with more flexibility than most regulated financial institutions.


ABC Board to modify absurd rule, to a slightly less absurd rule…

Lee said after the work session he expects the rule to be changed to require that the sellers record the names and addresses of the customers who buy products to take home, but not their phone numbers and birth dates.

Lee said the requirement to record the names and addresses of buyers is part of the state law and not subject to the board’s discretion.

Dan Roberts, executive director of the Alabama Brewers Guild, said he disagrees with the ABC Board’s interpretation of the law and does not think breweries are required under the law to record the names and addresses of customers who buy for off-premises consumption.

Roberts said the intent of the law and the letter of the law can be met by the brewers keeping records of sales for on-premises and off-premises consumption without recording buyers’ names.

Roberts said the law is ambiguous, however.

ABC officials said the requirement to record the names of buyers is to ensure that required taxes are paid in the same way as when the manufacturers, the breweries, sell to wholesalers, rather than directly to a consumer.

ABC Board spokesman Dean Argo said the staff would recommend changing the proposed rule to remove the requirement that the breweries, wineries and distilleries report the personal information of buyers to the ABC Board.


Voting matters…
