RedEye Around #SweetHomeAlaBAMA

Alabama is rolling in cash.with Tide lifting all boats

What's up with Governor Robert Bentley's decision to neuter Luther Strange?
Why did Alabama Governor Robert Bentley last week remove authority to enforce gambling lawsfrom Attorney General Luther Strange?
That is the question of political intrigue that now envelops "The Heart of Dixie," which has been ranked as the sixth most corrupt state in country--and, with Bentley's help, is making a strong push for No. 1. Experience with Alabama politics tells us that a straightforward answer to our question probably is not forthcoming. So what's the real reason for Bentley's action last week, what is--to borrow a phrase from the late Paul Harvey--"the rest of the story"?
Psst Left in Alabama!  Do you want some cheese to go along with that whine?  Your non video synopsis of Saturday's ADP Yellowdog Presidential Luncheon  was one long whine. 
You didn't get to video.  You didn't get to take a picture with James Carville.  Brian Clemmons, the ADP Compliance Officer was the most memorable, but not in a good way. He talked about money and reporting. This guy was B-O-R-I-N-G, not really the subject, but his cadence reminded me of Ben Stein in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The food was mediocre.  Nancy Worley was complimented on being the “best state chair in the USA.  
Um,  this is what happens when the majority of voters who show up to vote hate President Obama more than they love themselves. 
When Alabama Governor Robert Bentley refused to expand Medicaid with the Affordable Care Act, the state lost millions of dollars in federal revenue.  At the same time, hundreds, if not thousands of Alabamians lost access to medical care.
The police chief says Tasing and beating of a white Alabama student is a black (pun intended?) eye for the University of Alabama. 
  Now, if it had been black students, you probably wouldn't even know about it know, because the black kids would have been told, by the white population, to just obey, do what you're told and none of this would have happened.
Uh, who knew there is a mural depicting African Americans picking cotton on a plantation hanging in the Courthouse in Jefferson County, Alabama.  Psst!  You might want to check out the murals hanging on the walls of ALL Alabama Courthouses.  So much for Justice for all. 

So, the students, faculty joined the University of Missouri (Mizzo) football team and stood up to racism, bigotry, and discrimination, and the usual suspects are having a complete and total meltdown

It's all about the Benjamin's
