This is simply an example of the down-side of "up-to-the-moment" and "instant-it-happens" news reporting. All access to information 24/7 is grand, ain't it? Except for when it doesn't work as intended.
The plus side of the 'old' televised news formats is that when a news-worthy story 'broke' there would be a short blurb about it during a broadcast with a promise for a follow-up once more information was obtained. Now, though, there are all day broadcasts filled with speculation, hearsay, and b.s. probabilities sprinkled with "experts" that those tuning in take as factual simply because it comes from what has always been a reliable source for news and current events (irregardless of which station you prefer to tune into - they are all guilty of this practice).
Gregory - correction, Judge Moore was Chief Justice when he was forcibly removed from office over the Commandments debacle (and loss of tax dollars over the court battle of same). That he was voted back to that seat by a large majority of Alabama voters just shows the power of bible belt voters and highly selective memories.
Sen. Campfield doesn't have any children (that he's aware of - his words) and therefore, has no clue whatsoever about the education process and what parent involvement entails - much less who exactly he's targeting with his mean-spirited legislation. I see nothing wrong with parading elementary/middle/high school children around Legislative Plaza, just so he can put faces to those he's attempting to restrict. He needs to see who will be affected by his proposals, rather than relying on the old "Welfare Queen" pseudo-image from the Reagan era.
How in the world can Campfield claim that he wants children to get the "best education available" and deny a child the opportunity to learn about how laws are made?!? Dude, seriously. This is nothing more than an attack on poor people. If you have children's education reform in mind, make your bills reflect that by offering something that will affect ALL CHILDREN, not just the lower income sector.
Mr. Campfield apparently suffers from the "do as I say, not as I do" syndrome found in most hypocrites.
And, if Campfield has not put said properties behind a corporate veil, I am certain his attorneys will advise him to do so post-haste!
Gun ownership rule #1 is to ALWAYS check to make sure a gun is unloaded before handling. I don't (currently) own a gun and I know that! I think we need to have HCP requirements include taking a gun safety course prior to issuing. We have to take tests to drive, why not a test to own a gun?
