2014 Alabama General Election sample ballots are up!

Some Democrats -- and 5 Constitutional Amendments, our Republican legislature hard at work!


Southern Democrats or "Momma told me not to come" (3 Dog Night)

Want some whiskey in your water
Sugar in your tea
What's all these crazy questions they askin' me
This is the craziest party there could ever be
Don't turn on the lights, 'cause I don't want to see

Not only do we have former Republicans running as Democrats, we have Democrats running from being Democrats!

In the South, the Democratic Party is in shambles. Florida and Alabama have Charlie Crist and Parker Griffith, Republicans are now the only ones who can beat Republicans!

Then there is the classic Southern Democrat who is actually very clear in identifying as a social and fiscal conservative (anywhere else a Republican). The following is an actual campaign ad for the Democratic candidate Joe Hubbard for Alabama Attorney General, a southern state, arguably the reddest state in America.


First, "My opponent is trying to convince you that I'm some kind of liberal. The truth, I'm pro-life, pro-gun, and pro-family."

Second, I don't think anywhere in the ad is there an acknowledgement that Joe Hubbard is running as a Democrat.

Third, law and order candidate is always the Republican meat and potatoes. Besides denying being a liberal, he could be a Republican?

So, if these are our candidates, what does it say about our Party? What does it say about the southern Democratic voter? How do our candidates get a real Democrat to vote for them, if this is the choice?

And would you believe Joe Hubbard is a good Democrat?

More on Tracey Grissom.

Do we have a judicial system that delivers justice and mercy, or punishment and revenge? We all know the answer.

While domestic violence is on our radar today involving the rich, famous and powerful, devastating dramas go on in our courtrooms everyday. Domestic violence and abuse involves millions of Americans every year. Don't we all know, haven't we all seen...and nothing changes. This Grissom story is an example of the escalation of dysfunction in toxic family relationships - and ends with all lives destroyed.

Knowing what follows after it begins, we need zero tolerance and maximum rehabilitation. We know this! But what do we have? What can we do?

A final news story (for now):


Have you all heard of the Tracey Grissom case?

She was convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison for gunning down her ex-husband.

According to the News, juror Janice Kelley said Grissom didn't get a fair trial because jurors weren't given the details of the rape and sodomy Grissom allegedly suffered at the hands of her ex-husband.

Strict limitations were in place during the trial to prevent attorneys on both sides of the case from discussing the alleged assault for which Hunter Grissom was charged in 2010. Those rules were lifted during the sentencing hearing, and the Tuscaloosa News reports that Tracey Grissom took the stand and told a packed courtroom about injuries she sustained during the sexual assault.

She said she had permanent rectal and vaginal damage after the alleged rape, and other sources, including a friend and a counselor for victims of domestic violence, said the alleged attack left Grissom scarred both physically and mentally.

The judge gave her just 25 years.



Labor Day Kick Off!

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Parker Griffith:

Happy Labor Day! As President Obama heads to Wisconson today...

to remind us, "there is power in a union!" Always has been, always will be.
