Progressives are more than confused…
Progs who have been demanding government take over of the healthcare system for years are suddenly upset that the government run mail carrier is being manipulated for political ends and the government run security force is an instrument of repression, but still get upset when you tell them the government run schools have a pro government agenda.
Do you Recall Barack?
He was the first half black president, and many consider him to be somewhat of a dim bulb. His handlers wrote speeches for him to give and he dutifully gave them. He didn’t have much money when he came into the White House. His net worth was just over a million dollars and most of that was a house. His wife had been disbarred and couldn’t work as a lawyer. Eight years in office and (estimated hidden accounts included) by all reckoning, he’s worth around a billion dollars. Not bad work if you can get it.

It’s Autumn in Arizona
Soon Clear Creek will be frozen over as winter sets in. The German Brown Trout will settle into deep holes in near-hibernation and the bear will find caves to curl up in – total hibernation. The seasons remind of us of the cycle of life, of death and birth, of warmth and snow, and we reckon our own lives in this way as the sand drifts from the hour glass. The landscape seeps to change, but it doesn’t really – not that much anyway. Life at the White Wolf Mine.

Map of Home Rule in Alabama. If you didn’t know Alabama is a unitary state everything has to go through the Alabama Legislature unless a county has been granted Home Rule. This means the Legislature decides things such as whether or not Hale County can run a Bingo Game.

Don’t shoot me, I’m only the piano player. An archeologist came up with this map. I don’t know how accurate this is. Likely it was shoehorned into a paper of some sort. We were on this topic last week here on the blog.
