We Cannot Let Trump Win The Presidency

You thought is acceptance speech was scary? It’s not the Republican voters that will usher in a neo-facist, racist, anti-science, anti-SOCAS, nationalist separatist, inexperienced, intellectually retarded, buffoon of a demagogue into the highest office in the nation.

An Oncoming Storm: The 2014 Midterm Elections

Rev. Bentley, Bishop of Alabama

Alabamians have spoken.  As predicted, they have chosen another Republican governor.  Dr. Robert Bentley is now the top dog and it is apparent that the Alabamians who voted him into office did not have a good enough grasp on reality to embrace the fact that Bentley, a Deacon and Sunday School Teacher at First Baptist…
