Alabama Last Place

In today’s National news, Alabama is capturing the headlines.

First are the conditions of the Alabama Prison System.

When local officials fail to protect constitutional rights, the federal government must. Barr needs to return to consent decrees Sessions avoided.

Education is a sham in Alabama and the blame for the deplorable state of Alabama’s education system lies squarely on the shoulders of politicians and voters. For twenty years Alabama has talked about an education lottery but what happens when we are finally given the chance? There is not one word about nor one dime toward education.

Politicians have ignored education through lies and manipulation, instead convincing voters that salvation lies in self-imposed property taxes. Teachers donate time and money in fundraisers for school supplies while parents are constantly asked to financially chip in. In Baldwin County “portable” campuses will be a norm.

The third Alabama headline is Abortion. Yes, Alabama is last in education and first in the worst prison system in the U.S., and now wants to also be first in it’s opposition to Abortion. Even incest and rape or being a minor are not considered as factors for abortion if a woman has the misfortune to be a victim in Alabama.

“Alabama is better than this”. But are we?

This is who we are. We are the state that just told rape victims they have to carry their rape babies to term. We are the state that just told pre-teen girls that they have to carry their incest babies to term. This is who we are. Stop telling me otherwise. Please. Subscribe to APR’s […]

Governor Kay Ivey will bear the burden of the decision to sign the bill or veto it. Most likely she will celebrate signing the bill into law.

These are the headlines of the National News Today.

This is Alabama. Think about this! This is where we live…but is this what we want?

Fellow Republican

If the politicians care so much. Bout human life, then why don’t they help the children already born? But no, their issue isn’t about human life, it is about controlling women. I am s guy myself and I defer to the woman.
The politicians just want this to go to the Supreme Court. There are other issues besides this exercise in baiting the radicals on BOTH sides. Geez, even the nicest and rape clauses were removed from this bill by my fellow stupid white men who give the rest of us white guys a bad name.
As Rodney King once said, “Can’t we all just get along?”
Hey my fellow Republicans: You say you are for limited government but you are in the peoples’ bedrooms. Keep at it and the Democrats will win back the legislature and then there will be SERIOUS hell to pay

Time to get new leaders.
No other place to start.
Sure is embarrassing.

I always vote for Democrats at the state level and Republicans at the national level.
Bread an butter issues at home and defense at abroad
Republicans are great in the Congress but suck in the state legislature
Also this bipartisan mixture keeps things in balance
As a Republican I can say to my fellow Democrat Americans that I can see why you are Democrats. I join you in your battle st the home level. We may disagree at the national level but at the local level I will be at your side.

With Catalyst selling the “Christian Conservative” label these dumb assed voters will vote single straight jacket ticket
They do not see they are being played as fools

Alabama Sucks

You mention that we (Alabama) is better than this? We are not. The politicians (ALL) do not wake up everyday and ask themselves, what can I do today to make Alabama a better place to live? All politicians are responsible for what Alabama stands for. Those who don’t, need to get the hell out of office and let someone else who cares take over. Worst State in Education and Prisons and they think they have the right to tell the women of Alabama when they can or when they can’t have an abortion? Think about it? The women of Alabama deserve better and so does the rest of us too!!! F the lottery and F the State of Alabama and it’s politicians!!!

Spanish Fort Oracle

As long as the voters fail to see what is really going on then they will keep voting these people in office
I fear for this nation. We are being duped by the political class. The founding fathers really tried to keep this from happening. Nascent democracy quickly turns to dictatorship. This is why they gave us a republic- to protect us from ourselves

Kevin Spriggs can elaborate. He told me once and I got his point
Kevin please chime in

GOP

Roy Moore needs to run for governor. Ivey is a rino!!!

Just Wait

Wait until some of the women who had their abortion paid for by a elected official of Alabama come out and tell us who they are? Stay tuned

That will be interesting

Lottery Bill

We now know why the Alabama Lottery excluded “Education”! Because of all the Money and Business that is going to be lost because of this Abortion Bill being passed by the white faternity of Alabama politicians. There will also be an incredible amount of money spent having to defend this ridiculous bill which steps on all of our great women in Alabama no matter what the decision of the US Supreme Court decides. Thanks again Alabama Politicians. Once again everyone else in the Country is laughing at us!

True Republican

I am a REGISTERED card-carrying Republican at the national, state, and local level. I am ashamed at what this Republican legislature has done. I am voting Democrat next election for the state and county level.
You local Republicans have sucked off of the national platform and hijacked the party
The only way I see to treat this is to take the power away from you and cleanse the local party

Soothsayerfh

Lottery money will be stolen.
