WHAT EDUCATION LOTTERY?

Alabama is going to give the lottery away to the highest bidder, the Poach Creek Indians. You sure cannot blame the Poach Creek Indians for understanding how to manipulate our good Republican legislators. Money, baby, is what it is all about. The supporters of this bill feel that they still have the moral high ground by preventing any additional gaming while stuffing their pockets full of Indian money.

Two separate lotto bills were introduced:

Dueling lottery bills: A simple breakdown of what they do

Dueling lottery bills: A simple breakdown of what they do

There are currently two lottery bills in the Alabama Legislature: SB220, sponsored by Sen. Greg Albritton, and SB130, sponsored by Sen. Jim McClendon. While these two bills legalize a lottery in Alabama, they are remarkably different in terms of the games that are allowed, revenues generated and jobs created. Whenever the topic of a lottery, […]

Education was dismissed as not being important enough to include in any revenue from the Albrittton Indian lottery.

The lottery bill passes out of the Senate Tourism committee 6-5 on Tuesday.

According to the bill, money from the lottery will first go to pay for its expenses then go into the state’s trust fund to repay transfers made to the general fund from 2013 to 2015. Once everything is repaid, Albritton says half the money will go back into the trust fund and into the state’s general fund.”

This lotto is designed to pay “back debt” as far back as 2013 and allocates nothing for the “future” Education Fund.

The Indians placed their bet on greedy politicians and gave them money to help them think clear on how to vote.

The Senate Tourism and Marketing committee will vote Tuesday on a bill that, if approved, would give the Poarch Band of Creek Indians a complete monopoly over gaming operations in the state. If adopted, it will also eliminate legal pari-mutuel gaming at the state’s four race tracks, cost jobs in Macon, Greene and Jefferson Counties […]

Poarch Creeks made the following contributions to Republican tourism committee members this election cycle:

Del Marsh Chair $30,000

Randy Price Vice Chair $12,500

Chris Elliot $27,500

Garlan Gudger $25,000

Andrew Jones $10,000

Our State Senator Chris Elliott aka the TAX MAN, netted $27.500, to help him think straight. He supports the Albritton bill and no allocation for the Education Fund. The TAX MAN has taxed us twice without a vote, diverted education money from the 1% tax, about $200.000 a year, and now provides no money to go towards the Education Fund, from a lottery that started out being about education.

Please remember that Elliott, the TAX MAN, was vetted prior to the elections by Governor Poison Ivy and he pledged his support for the gas tax while campaigning against it. Christian Conservative.

Elliott and Albritton are also on board to make major changes in Ethics and Lobbyist. The changes are designed protect legislators from ethics charges and allows lobbyist to contribute to the never ending cycle of political corruption.

Maybe the answer is just to make corruption legal.

I hope those who voted for the TAX MAN know now what a terrible decision that was.

ALABAMA number one in political corruption and damn proud of it.

Ripp, it is POARCH CREEK INDIANS – not “Poach”.
Poarch comes from the name of a small community up here by Atmore that was a train stop for timber and farm goods. The Creek Indians (actually Muskogee) live up here by Poarch, Alabama.

Francis Ripp

Sorry for the mistake thanks for the info.

Kevin B. Bishop

Elliott the baldheaded loser!!!

Anonymous

As you stated, can’t blame the Poarch Creeks for looking out for their tribe’s interests and growing their millions by millions more a year. They did not have to look far to find a few corrupt politicians to push their Bill and hand over gaming rights to them. Seems the PCI has learned the ways of the white man after all. Pay to play, and they have the funds to do so. Chris Elliott lies from Day 1 about no taxes And here we go again!!

Old Fairhopers

AL is the only state without a lottery. Elliott is a two facer from way back. Had business with him. Not trustworthy.

Jim From Tuscaloosa

The legislators are always looking out for themselves protecting us from evil gambling.

Truth

Let’s not forget about all the sorry ass people that work for or with or supports Chris Elliott. Plenty of garbage out of office and in office that supports anything to do with Chris Elliott! All of you Baldwin County School Teachers that were too stupid to see what a scumbag and terrible supporter of education that this Chris Elliott is and HAS always been. To think of any Lottery bill for the State of Alabama that INCLUDES the Porch Creek Indians benefiting from it and EXCLUDES Education from it is just about all I can stand. Wake up all you barefooted dumbass Alabama people who can’t see that this is money in all their pockets to spend down the road on raising their own salaries and screwing Education once again. Damn Alabama is just plain Stupid!!! Elliott, man you must get off every time you screw us because you do it WELL AND YOU DO IT OFTEN!!!

Elliot goes to my church.
He’s a good man.

Please don’t think that every man or woman that attends church is a good person. It does not get you into heaven either. If I see you on the other side I’ll shake your hand. If I don’t. I’ll send you my condolences.

Truth

I’m sure he is Kevin Bishop, and you are the worse of the stupid kind. Lord, thanks for having Bishop here let us know we are so lucky that Elliott is such a good man! Wink! Feel sorry for your family because I know what church he walkes in. He just doesn’t go to worship God. He goes as Satan to be worshipped himself. I’ll sleep better tonight stupid!

Richie Rich

Elliott is a good man alright.
A good TAX man!!

I spoke to Chris last week. Told him how upset i was about him voting for so many taxes.
He said he had no choice.
And is pro life and pro Trump.
Im good with Chris.

Anonymous

He said he had no choice. So, the guy who has the ability to vote one way or the other has no choice. No. He IS the guy who has a choice. What a bunch of suckers. How in the world is that a good response from Chris?

Hemiwolfgang7

Yall are so busy working and paying TAXES you don’t realize what’s happpening…and the media ain’t gonna show you…the politicians are gonna build three bridges across the intracoastal and then build massive residential development on the traversing side. Get ready beaches…you guys are gonna get slammed with traffic. The people in power see money in lower Baldwin. The writing is on the wall.
Carpe diem

Homewood

Hemiwolfgsng, you are right on the money here. These developers moved into Baldein and are exploiting that place for THEIR benefit. The voters are duped because those Catalyst crooks say they are Christian. They are deceivers
I am watching all this happen from Homewood and am laughing at the gullibility of of Baldwin Countians. Their ignorance proves they do not deserve that place and they will lose it to the outside developers.

Anonymous

You know Homewood. You have a dang good point there. There are quite a bit of us really good honest and hardworking people here in Baldwin County and as much as we let ALL the politicians lie and steal from us. Why not wish we would just lose everything because of them. I’m dead serious. We have been letting this action take place this whole time. Ain’t nothing gonna stop it now.

Homewood Hero

There is much you can do: For one, hold them accountable. Second, run for office or support a candidate that is NOT in that political group down there that is run by the builders. Look at that lady who ran against that Dorsey fellow – she won. Third, spread the word about what is happening. Yes, much of what you say will fall on deaf ears, but if you reach one out of a hundred people then that will be a good start. Fourth, ask the politicians in public WHY they are letting the builders run them. Of course the builders OWN the politicians but seeing them squirm and dodge will convey to the public who their true allegiance is to – the builders. In our part of town up here we fought the builders and we won. But we know we have to stay vigilant. When wee see a large tract of land near or neighborhood is being bought by an outside developer, we inform them of the zoning laws and we stay on the council to not issue any variances. We put OUR people on the council and keep them informed and they keep us informed. The word… Read more »

Ivey is the most popular governor in America.
Alabama’s unemployment is three percent.
Fairhope is the fastest growing city in the state.
The republicans are in power.
Do something about it if you are so upset about a paltry gas tax.

Anonymous

Alabama is also ranked 3rd worst state for poverty. Alabama’s unemployment rank is 3%. Which you are being a little generous in that statement. It’s 3.7%. Still not a bad rank, but if the unemployment is so low and the poverty is also ranked as 3rd worst state, how exactly do you think that is a good thing? People are working and they are still poor. Wow, thanks.

I have to agre with anonymous about okwithkaye. Actually it is KAY! If Alabama is really that well of. Let’s just forget the lottery. This is what happens when people like okwithkaye speak out with a third grade education.

Anonymous

Love the Map. Doesn’t that just prove how hard all of politicians have been working to make is great. We suck!!! Even the ones you think are okay will lie to your face on a daily basis whether they are running for office or not.

Alabama

Hey “OkwithKaye”. I am having to do something about it. Me and my family are working very hard to make Alabama a better place to live and have done so with many generations. Where the F are you from because at the same time we are having to put up sorryass people like you everyday. Really doesn’t matter where you are from. I know why you like Kaye. I guess y’all are on first name basis. I see her every month and I can tell you just how out of touch the goofball we have for Governor is. Creepy if you want to know the truth. It’s KAY by the way. Where are you from I would have to agree with the the post on how stupid you people are if you don’t even know how to spell our own Governor’s name. Dating the Governor? Alabama is not even one 100th of Great you say it is “okwithkaye”. We certainly have the bar set a lot higher than you do. Close your mouth and put your shoes back back and get the ripple out. You certainly are not educated!!!

Ivey is the most populous Governor with the lgbgt people of Alabama especially the ones kissing her butt! Besides, she is only a puppet. Just go to Montgomery with me a couple days a month and I’ll show you right in front of your eyes and ears. Problem is that you people make statements that you have no clue what you are talking about without seeing it for yourselves!!!

Alabama

Well Ripp. I guess we can see that many things we have known are really true. One thing for certain. We people of Alabama have a Governor who doesn’t have an ounce of leadership blood in her body and even less than that of brains in her head. What a disgrace we are. I have always put bowed my head down when any of the National Media is doing a story in the State of Alabama and everyone in this State know exactly what I’m talking about. They always pick an individual with the lowest income, the fewest teeth and 9 out of 10 times, no shoes or shirt and probably smoking a cigarette while being interviewed. Well, that’s exactly what ever single politician in Alabam represents because none of them do anything about other politicians that screw us everyday. We have so many politicians that take credit for things that they could have not done without Trump but at the same time. Trump would have accomplished what they did and more without them. Let me repeat. Non of you in any of an elected position are doing a good job by allowing the corruption that is taking place across… Read more »

Aunt Patty Pity

I feel sorry for the kids in Alabama. It’s harder than you think growing up in Alabama. Ignorance abounds.

Stanton Pierce

I have written the AL Ethics Committee about this site. To tell the truth so bluntly about political corruption in Alabama is unprecedented.

I have asked them to read the Ripp Report. I will let you know of I hear anything.

Georgia Orwell

The Alabama Ethics Committee appears to only exist to protect/shield the corrupt politicians. Nothing will be done. Alabama politicians are rotten to the core. Go to a local city council meeting and you will see the root which stems and flowers in Montgomery. It is horrible. I wish I had known before I moved here how stupid the voters are because they keep electing these bible-thumping thieves.

Anonymous

Georgia. Go to bed and got to sleep. Matter of fact. Rest easy. The comment was made in humor. Educate Alabama!

Stanton responder

Stanton, every time I see the words “Alabama Ethics Commission,” it reminds me of the perfect definition of a oxymoron. The best ones I can think of are jumbo and shrimp, cool heat, Little Big Horn, but Alabama and ethics takes the cake!!!

Not sure about Elliott.
We were better off with Pittman.

Holy Mackerel sh$t Fire. I bet Pittman smiled when he read this. No, we are not better off with Pittman. But we did get rid of his thieving butt!!! It was to easy. Elliott is in line for the same treatment. Stay tuned. There will be another election.

Jackfan2020

This site is garbage.
You will be sued.
You cannot print lies.

Politicians being bought

Jackfan2020. Of course Ripp cannot print lies and he hasn’t. The tens of thousands of dollars given by the Poarch Indians to these politicians was not out of pure kindness but a demonstration of these politicians selling out to the highest bidders.
And you say these are good people? Ha! That there is a lie.

Hey Jackfan2020 zero brains. What a whiner. If the truth hurts that bad. Stop reading it. Thanks for the laugh!!! Oh my!

Satan has infiltrated the local Churches

Jackfan2020, Ripp would have already been sued if he was being inaccurate. It seems as if it is getting harder and harder for you to carry the water of Jack who thinks he is a god and above reproach. This article is only the first and LEAST of your worries. More and more is getting out about these “Christian” hypocrites. I used to attend the Methodist Church until I saw Jack stand at the lectern and address the congregation.
I now go to another church where the Catalyst hypocrites have not yet infiltrated. They have let Satan take over the Episcopalian and Methodist Churches in Fairhope.

Jackfan2020

Jack is a fine Christian.
You admit he is a church leader.
You siund jealous of his natural ability to lead men.

Satan has infiltrated the local Churches

Satan also leads men – straight to Hell…

He is part of the political machine that is OWNED by DR Horton, Belaton, Truland, and Catalyst.

Baldwin Politicians and church…..
Ol’ Joe F. hands out peppermints in church.

I always figured it masked his breath.

I’m really glad they all go to church because they need it!! If I were them, I would be consumed by guilt.

I am sure they find a way to sleep at night as they justify how they treat others. Maybe giving out peppermints is penance.

Thought the voters would have been smarter and replaced him and Chris last election.
Now they have their very own PR man they are paying with OUR TAX DOLLARS. Chuckee Cheese is in Montgomery as we speak. That sickens me.

I have reported this erroneous site to the SEC, FCC, the AEC, and 20/20 on CBS. I am tired of you spewing dirt and half truths every week twice a week!! Your day in court is coming Ripp!!

Please post the report! It would be very entertaining. What law did he break? Tell us, mr. lawyer.

I guess you catalyst crap for brains don’t understand how this here works.

Ripp sues you.
Wins.
Goes on vacay.

True that, Maw Barker

Maw Barker you are too true.

Catalyst is Evil

So what does the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission?) have to do with this site? If you are going to report this site then report it to CNN and say Ripp hates Trump. It really doesn’t matter if Ripp loves or hates Trump – just say Ripp hates Trump.
Then CNN will be down here to cover this story quicker than a Catalyst politician allowing a new subdivision to be built and making the existing county people to pay for the infrastructure.

Well I flew to DC and reported Ripp personally to the EPA, CIA, NSA, CPS, NAACP, and a few other lettered stuff. You’re in trouble now! No, no you can’t see the report! Top secret.
