A petition urging Amazon to relabel a controversial book, co-authored by Roy Moore, which included a lecture that states women shouldn’t run for public office, has reached more than 17,000 signatures on an online petition site.

The petition calls on Amazon — which labeled the book and its accompanying study course as a “textbook — to relabel the work as something else other than a “textbook.” The study course, titled “Law and Government: An Introductory Study Course,” is still for sale on Amazon.

Did The Tea Party Get Beat At Their Own Game?

August 16, 2016

Education Matters
By Larry Lee

My friends involved with Tea Party politics in Alabama decidedly favored either Michael Sentance of Massachusetts or Bill Evers of California as the next school superintendent. The reason? They said both were against Common Core standards.

Sentance was selected.

On Aug. 10 board member Matt Brown sent an email across the state saying he had heard a rumor that Tea Party supported state board members were going to support Craig Pouncey. He was directly pointing his finger at board members Betty Peters and Stephanie Bell and not so subtly encouraging people to put pressure on them. Bell and Peters were two of Sentance’s five votes Aug. 11. (Along with Brown, Mary Scott Hunter and Governor Bentley.)

On Wednesday June 24, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) ordered all Confederate flags to be removed from State grounds.  There was no vote of the people, no public hearings, no court case, no vote of the Alabama Legislature.  Gov. Bentley just gave the order and workers began immediately removing all the Confederate Flags, including their poles from Confederate Memorials in Montgomery.  There was no fanfare, no ceremony, no bugler, no reverence for history or moment of silence as the flags were taken down.

Alabama Secession Petition Achieves 25,000 Signature Goal

November 14, 2012

The Alabama secession petition has received 26,022 signatures, easily surpassing the 25,000 siqnatures goal needed for the White House to respond to the citizen’s petition, according to the White House website.

The petition initiative was established by the Obama White House so that the federal government could be more responsive to the needs and wishes of the American people.  49% of the American people and over 60% of the people of Alabama voted for a new President in the November 6th reelection and many are apparently taking the loss hard.  Some are taking the bitter defeat so badly that they are using the White House’s own petition function to ask President Obama to allow Alabama and at least 20 other states to leave the union and become their own nation.
