We need to keep record on the spineless PUBS for who will be the first to succumb to the Wiley Coyote urgings of the RATS & Obozo because there surely will be some.
“Schools to get 1 billion from stimulus pkg”.
Alabama schools are facing pro-ration now and the cuts amount to somewhere around 250 million. The superintendent of schools has been wringing his hands, you know, these cuts will be the death of the school system and such. This bailout can save education in Alabama, etc. Said it would save 3,000 teacher jobs here in the state.
He called my Senator, Richard Shelby, and urged him, probably threatened him, to do anything to pass this bill to “save the schools”. Now, I know Joe Morton (school superintendent) personally. He was the superintendent of my city schools and my mom served on the school board with him for probably 10 years. He is a fine man, did a great job in our schools and is doing as good a job as possible in our state. He is a man of integrity and I respect him.
Having said that, I will be watching closely to what Shelby votes on this pkg. One mans “Pork” is another mans salvation “for the children”. That is why we need to elect men, or women, who have core beliefs and stick to them. If Shelby sticks to his guns then great! I suspect he will cave. And if he does he will hear from me and never get my vote again.
Sooner or later conservatives are gonna have to stand up and demand that politicians do the right thing instead of giving in to special interests. I hope that time is now.
