Alabama has made the right decision by sharply curtailing the categories of crime that disqualify voting rights. Roy Moore has aptly illustrated the reality that the highly subjective so-called "moral turpitude" is in fact a vestige of segregationism. Roy Moore's attempt to denigrate the Jones campaign for registering legal voters, is reprehensible and yet another act of contempt - by the hanging judge.
So here's the way I see it. The tax cut is either business as usual which will result in little for common folks, and then will likely stimulate more violence than growth in this country....
If you're a conservative in Alabama, you are branded by both candidates as a "fascist." If you're tired of the non-choices for elected office, send them a message and Write-in Jim Casey for Senate of December 12th.
The race for Alabama Senate is busted. You can't vote for Roy Moore, you can't vote for Doug Jones. Write-in Jim Casey on 12/12 !!!
After pouncing upon his prey, this red-tail hawk grabs his mouse and takes flight, apparently afraid that I might be hungry too.
As for Police Officer Ricky McCarver, any nine year veteran police officer who is that stupid, or that incompetent, or who simply cannot control his own algirythms is simply not fit to be a police officer. Or, he is guilty of a subversive conspiracy to deny constitutional rights, false imprisonment, and a host of other illegal activity. Either way you look at it, Ricky McCarver needs to exit to find another job in a capacity that he can handle, maybe making car tags in the federal penitentiary.
In each case, (Eric Parker) Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, and others, the message is clear. Law enforcement has been granted a license to kill, even if it amounts to murder, with absolutely no fear of criminal repercussions what-so-ever. The Tamir Rice case is perhaps the most obvious, and the most egregious example of thugs murdering an innocent victim. In is unconscionable that in the United States of America, such a travesty can go unanswered.
The problem that intelligent and well-informed people face in Alabama, is that there are still plenty of rural places tucked away up in the holler where Johnny still hasn't traveled farther from home than he has to go to fetch a bucket of water from the well. Even though this observation is quite literally true, it is just as unfortunate that it is also metaphorically true, and so extends to what otherwise appears to be "normal" people living in places like Huntsville. The fact is, the South ain't gonna "rise again" in the sense that seems to motivate the cretins - that South simply don't exist, that South was an entirely different animal whose politics and plantations are extinct.
I believe in the American dream, not the American delusion. If you were to examine the war crimes of Bashar al-Assad, who is little more than the mayor of a large American city, could you really tell the difference, conceptually, between his tactics and the ones outlined in the New York Times story? I certainly can't. We are not yet in an all out war in this country, but if law enforcement is allowed to disregard constitutional values because they say they have cornered some bad guys, where will they stop if they hold an extremist sectarian view like Kim Davis and the TEA Party zealots? When do their tactics become enforcement of their agenda instead of legitimate law?
In Eric Parker's trial, one or more moron's refused to convict what was obvious at face value. Eric Parker used excessive and unnecessary force leaving the Indian Grandpa partially paralyzed. It is impossible to understand how a rational person could not find him guilty. Unfortunately, there are idiots who believe that their personal agenda is more important than legitimate due process.
This could be the most dangerous man in Huntsville. I've known Tommy Brown casually for many years, but only became overtly suspicious of his underworld dealings after Police Officer Ricky McCarver got into an altercation with John Lee Bullard at the Hsv Transportation Bus Station.
After moving to my new bungalow on the backwaters of the Tennessee River, I found an abundance of wildlife in the immediate area and began taking nature photos when the best opportunity seemed to present. This is a collection of those photos, mostly of warm-blooded critters of one type or another. Although I have some bug pictures from other places that will likely make up another similar collection, I think I may do some additional macro-insect photos to add here sometime later.
After reviewing all the information available, it turns out that the current Huntsville City Transportation Bus Station is built immediately on top of the original Huntsville Train Shops that were built around 1860. In fact, it seems highly likely that the digital time and temperature display located in the center of the bus terminal awning, is just about exactly in the center of the original turntable location. The point of impact of the Lee High School Bus, when it fell from the sky like a bomb, is also marked on these maps. Check it out.

Regardless of his beginning, it turns out that William Eric Freeman wasn’t much of a hero either. Because, while My Encounter With Danny Golden revealed he was poorly trained and incompetent, Eric Freeman was not only that, but he was also corrupt. My first encounter with Eric Freeman was not until 2001 and under circumstances that I am discussing only briefly because there are still outstanding legal issues, and injuries which trump any statute of limitation.
