    Just skimmed his Wikipedia article. Seems he was a long time Madison County politician. Guess you were never a fan.

    Wiki also said he was rated the most partisan House member in 2018. Given that his district is probably the least conservative in the state (not counting Sewel’s), maybe the Democrats can capture it in 2020.

    God help us if he gets Jones’ Senate seat. I doubt Jones can win, but I will support the least offensive Republican in the primary.

    I agree. I don't see why the House is wasting time on this. I'm not an expert on how Congress works so I'm asking anyone who has a good understanding of the processes, what does this resolution accomplish?

    I'd probably vote against it as well. Making up a list of specific groups while excluding others except for last part of the list: "...immigrants and others". We already have laws in place for this and if something is missing, work on the law.

    It also seems silly to worry about condemning specific remarks from specific individuals.

    HSV leans conservative, as you'd expect from the military-industrial complex here. However, it's accurate to say that it's the least conservative district in the state, excluding, of course, the black belt and Birmingham districts. He's always seemed like a mismatch to me. And, yes, we have a history...

    The state Senate has passed a bill (proposed by my very own Senator) that will let you send your state tax refund to build the wall.

    Will they let me send what I owe the state to the wall fund, too?

    This legislature is on a mission to pass stupid and/or destructive legislation, from this idiocy, to the gas tax, to Del Marsh's latest education abomination.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Anyone else been following the story about the state trying to ban abortion, with no exceptions for rape or incest?
