Do conservatives never feel dumb?

Maybe “dumb” is too harsh. Embarrassed? Ashamed?

Any of those? Any feeling resembling some level of remorse for loudly holding a belief that is 100 percent wrong?

Because, I hate to be the bearer of tough news here, but you guys are wrong a lot.

A whole lot.

On some pretty basic things.

I suppose that happens when your every belief eschews facts in favor of feels. But still, I wonder if you feel badly when your long-held beliefs — particularly those that are hurtful to your fellow Americans — prove to be untrue?

I was honored for sponsoring and having gotten passed the Pain Tolerant bill which I sponsored and got passed in 2011 which recognizes that children inside the mothers womb suffer pain and which prohibits abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. According to the Alabama Department of Public Health this will save the lives of some eighty children per year in Alabama. Also for my strong support of a recently passed pro life bill sponsored by Representative Mary Sue McClurkin (HB 57)and other pro life and pro family legislation. It truly is an honor to receive this award.”

Albertville, Boaz training on anti-illegal immigration law

December 29, 2011

Staff Report

The police departments in Albertville and Boaz are training on how to properly enforce the state’s controversial anti-illegal immigration law, hoping to avoid any legal pitfalls created by a confusing journey through the court system since its implementation in September.

Boaz Police Chief Terry Davis said the most difficult part of the law is “keeping updated and being constantly trained on the law. For example, you can only enforce the parts of the law that have not been stayed by the challenges to the law. Time is also a concern, because there are constraints that you must follow. Manpower has not been an issue at this time but could be in the future, but that will also depend on the court rulings and possible changes to the law itself.”
