Phillip Pettus Tirelessly & Mindlessly Marches On!

You have to hand it to Sen. Larry Stutts; when voters called him on his attempts to rescind Rose's Law, he had the common sense to back least for this session. One can't say the same for Rep. Phillip Pettus of Greenhill.

Pettus in his finite wisdom is still attempting to steal suffrage from Florence, Sheffield, Tuscumbia, Muscle Shoals, Athens, and the list goes on. He was quoted in today's TimesDaily as saying he had heard only five individuals speak against this bill. Maybe that's because he said he had better fish to fry on the night the local legislative delegation held its public meeting on the proposed bill.

We're surprised the bill made it out of committee. Even if it should pass, it will not be law before a statewide vote to approve it, which we don't see happening.

Props to Johnny Mack Morrow and Marcel Black for representing all the people they were elected to serve. It's been said that voters have a short memory; guess what? Political bloggers don't.


Rep. Ed Henry of Hartselle doesn't care if his bill costs Alabama tons in litigation; he's just protecting students by wanting to ban abortion clinics from any area in which there's a public school--all those demonstrations might be upsetting for the little tykes. Pardon us for introducing some logic here, but why not establish that permits for these demonstrations are not issued for school opening or closing times. Now if Rep. Henry would just start working to counter violence in movies, television shows, video games, and even homes, he might actually do some good.


What of Rep. Lynn Greer? So far he hasn't even mentioned any legislation on Alabama's antiquated Certificate of Need policy, but he has introduced three bills singing the accolades of Lauderdale County lady basketballers. First things first in Alabama...
