Whats bothering Mr Turnbow and other thoughts....

Liquor has now been sold for two weeks in Cullman, Al. So far Ive heard no reports of men masterbating in the streets as some of the pro dry people claimed would be the case before the vote. Filing deadline for county and state offices in Mississippi is this Tuesday at 5pm. So far the democrats have only managed to find credible candidates for Governor and Attorney General. I wouldnt hold my breath waiting for other credible democrats to step forward in the next two days because quite frankly there arent that many of them left in the magnolia state. The deadline for legislative candidates is June 1 because they have to get a redistricting bill passed and approved by the DOJ before they can qualify. One final note concerns the current situation in Wisconsin. Its striking how more dignified GOP leaning voters are than democrat voters. I don't recall hearing any Tea Partiers denouncing God or wishing bodily harm to their opponents. I heard one democrat protester denounce God during an interview that Chris Mathews was having with a democrat house member in Wisconsin last week. Also I wonder how a lot of those teachers in Wisconsin that are protesting can hold their heads up with dignity considering the current mess of the education system in that state and the nation. Ive said it before during the hoopla concerning Michael Oher and the Tuohys in Memphis. There are educators in this country who deserve to be arrested on the spot for their lack of dedication to their job. They are helping send kids to a brutal and cruel future by not doing their jobs.

Roundup from hee haw land for the week

Its been a busy week in politics here in hee haw country. Word broke the middle of this week that the Louisianna Attorney General Buddy Caldwell would be switching to the GOP very soon. Theres also numerous party switching rumors floating in north Mississippi right now as the March 1 filing deadline approaches. So far only Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson has switched to the GOP. I know from personal conversations that State Senator Eric Powell(D-Corinth) was approached on numerous occasions in the last few months about switching but he filed as a democrat a few weeks ago. It would've been a real coup for the GOP to land Powell, considering he's a first term black state senator. Down in Birmingham they are once again trying to settle a sewer debt that has nearly bankrupted the Birmingham/Jefferson County Al area. Jefferson County Commission President David Carrington(R) was in New York this week working on a settlement with Wall Street bankers concerning the sewer debt. This will be worked out in due time but its not going to come anytime soon in my opinion. The right people are now in charge on the Jefferson County end but unfortunately the same old crowd that helped get Jefferson County into this mess is still in charge on Wall Street.
