    Terry Spicer is a perfect example of what is wrong with the Alabama Legislature. Greed and total disregard for what is right and what is wrong…. I am glad the Dothan Eagle is staying with this story…..

    2010,

    You’re sort of a perfect example of what’s wrong with the conservative voice in this state. Your place amongst the scrum is to repetitively regurgitate the same old double-dipping nonsense that most of your fellow alums have given up on as a campaign tool. Hello, Political Graveyard. Actually, to make it to the Graveyard you must have won an election somewhere along the line, so maybe you can grandfather yourselves in somehow.

    Why trouble yourself so with politics, especially when it’s so blatantly clear you don’t understand them? And especially since you don’t even live in Elba. I mean, who cares what’s going on in Elba? Go Dothan Eagle, a citadel of brilliant and world-renowned journalism.

    Now if Rep. Spicer stole your girlfriend back in The Day, that’s another matter. I’m still plotting a hasty ambush to get that bastard that stole mine.

    How about hopping on the next shuttle to the Moon and setting up your un-political Utopia in the middle of the Agrippa Crater…which is named for Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim, a lawyer, theologian, and occultist? I think this setting will suit your skills and knowledge much more appropriately.

    Go Mean Green!

    Interesting technique, however, too polysyllabic,

    Union Boss Paul Hubbert said hire Spicer.

    That’s all anyone needs to know. AEA doesn’t like his work to be questioned.

    Didn’t he do the same thing for the Felon Sue Schmitz?

    Double dipping is corrupt. End it.

  • 2010

    ahhh, thanks post 2, a lot of trouble typing all of that and for what? a defense of terry spicer? a defense of double dipping? a defense of being given a job that you are not qualified for yet they hope you can exert political influence so they employ you? keep defending it all you want….. it is sort of like you trying to polish a turd. It is still a turd.

    Long live Terry Spicer and the AEA !!! Ridiculous….

Legislative Dispatch

A Look from the Rearview Mirror

This Thursday will mark the last day of the legislative Session.  For some, it was a Session that seemed would never end.  For others, it was one that ended much too quickly.  It may be early, yet, to write an obit on this Session, but as we approach the finish line, some perspective may be in order.

Putting Students First

As you know, a very important piece of legislation will be presented for our consideration in the House tomorrow in Montgomery – Senate Bill 310 – the “Students First” tenure and fair dismissal reform bill. Like me, many House members have been inundated with phone calls and emails from opponents of this bill, and some have been [...]

Legislative Transparency

There are a lot of issues to debate before we begin the final days of this session. In fact, I am quite certain there will be some comments on this post debating many of them. Before we get into the last seven day of the session I wanted to bring up a topic that [...]
