Redeye's Week in Review~edited

Hey Mister Speaker, can we reinstate slavery yet? Because Alabama's immigration law is working. Mission Accomplished.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama's agriculture commissioner, John McMillan, is suggesting farmers look at work-release inmates if they are experiencing labor shortages due to Alabama's new immigration law.

Some farmers have complained that Hispanic workers who traditionally harvested their crops have left and they can't find replacement workers.

A spokesman for the Department of Corrections says there are 2,300 inmates in the work-release program and they are available for all types of jobs, including farming. But spokesman Brian Corbett says the department can't attribute any increase in work-release jobs to the immigration law so far.

Our Guvermint foiled an alleged terrist plot to this week. What color is the Terra Lert?
I'm not saying that I don't believe our government's story. I neither believe it nor disbelieve it. I know too well that the intelligence game is played above my level. It could be true. It might not be. I'm more interested in why no one asks the obvious questions. I mean, what's the motivation?

The No to Jobs republican house passed the Let Women Die Bill this week. Why any self respecting women would vote for republican man or woman is beyond me.
How did you like that crackpot anti-Choice bill Boehner and Cantor-- who claim they're too busy to even allow a vote on the president's proposed jobs legislation-- passed yesterday? They're calling it the Protect Life Act and it passed the misogynistic-dominated House 251-172. If Mitt Romney or any of the other right-wingers running for the GOP presidential nomination were in power to sign this dreck, here's some of the damage it would do:
• Allow hospitals receiving federal funds to deny emergency abortions to women whose lives are in danger due to a pregnancy gone horribly wrong.

Herman Cain leads gop candidates according to the polling pollsters and the pollsters who poll them. Translation, Cain is a Weapon of Mass Distraction from the other gop clowns. Yep, instead of talking about Niggerhead Ranch, Rommney's religion, and the fact the republicans filibustered the Jobs Bill they would RATHER talk about 666, I mean 999, and Rick Perry's wife Anita whining about how hard it is out there for a pimp, I mean gop Presidential candidate.

Reverend Jeremiah Wright returned to the noose, I mean news this week, thanks to a minister supporter of Rick Perry calling Mitt Rommney's religion a cult.
"Wright indicted an entire country," he said. "What Wright did, Wright used the old style of preaching rooted in the ways of the prophet narratives of the Old Testament. Because the nation has done wrong, God will present judgment unless you repent. This is what God will do. He indicted an entire country for the things America has done."
Wright, a black man, called out the majority, Martin said

Can Sweet Home Alabama can turn a Paige and take our state legislature back from the red, TeaPublicans? God I HOPE so.
How important is Parnell’s campaign to the Alabama Democratic Party? Right now, the Alabama House has a 64-40 GOP majority. A Parnell win makes that 64-41. That brings Democrats within a couple of seats of being able to block a cloture vote - in other words, to being able to mount an effective filibuster against further Republican efforts to attack both the Democratic Party, and the workers, teachers, police and fire personnel, and other vulnerable constituents we represent.

It's too late to apologize. A declaration.
