The Alabama Democratic Party:
"We´re broke, broke, broke."

Birmingham News [AL], by Charles J. Dean

Posted By:Ribicon, 5/12/2013 12:01:41 PM

Montgomery, Alabama – Acting state Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Worley lowered her head and slowly shook it side to side when summing up the financial condition of her once powerful party. "We´re broke, broke, broke," Worley told the party´s Executive Board in a special called meeting Frida. How broke is broke? Worley didn´t sugar coat the answer. "This is my 18th day as chair and thirty minutes after I took over on April 22nd the landlord of the building where our party headquarters are came in and said he wanted us out, that the rent was overdue and was always overdue,"

Comments:
A happy Mothers Day card from Dixie.

The nation is broke, too, owing to Democrat and RINO policies, but because the Alabama Democrat police can´t print money from thin air, they can´t dodge the bill collectors.

FTA - Worley said in addition to the financial chaos there are equipment, supplies and art work missing from party headquarters.

Dems even steal from themselves. I´m sure wealthy Dems in blue states will happily bail them out with money out of their own pockets. /s off

If the rot and death of a political Party has to start somewhere Alabama is just as good a place as any. Now may the sickness spread here to Mississippi. Who said a fish has to rot from the head down. Hot a hot day in Dixie the fish can rot either way.

Just imagine those once invincible Southern Democrats. Without immigration from the third worlds poor, the rest of the democrat party would be asking for bankruptcy protection.

If I´m not mistaken the NAACP is also broke and wants an Obama bailout.The problem with all these liberal institutions is there´s too many sticky fingers as money moves through the process. sometimes they´re so overwhelmed with money they stumble on success because they outspend the opponent.

Obama has no problem raising money because he´s the top dog on rewarding donors and he´s more or less a sure bet when you need a favor or government funding. They probably pay people to come up with fancy names for programs like the "affordable care act" which is anything but affordable. What about the american recovery act aka. the stimulus.That money was blown on donors and supporters in no time and the average person never saw a dime of it.How can youput an extra trillion in the economy and still only have 2% growth.The simple answer the money didn´t go to job creators. In fact it facilitated more jobs going overseas.

Romney called obama out on Chrysler opening plants in China,obama denied it and it wasn´t long before the announcement was made. GE has moved a ton of jobs overseas.

They closed down a union plant in Va. that made lightbulbs and moved it to Mexico. But under an Obama/union law,the people who lost their jobs,overseas got a big fat golden parachute. No such luck for a mom and pop restaurant going under.

There has to be an end game to all this craziness,especially the Cloward/Piven strategy of bankrupting the social safety net programs.That wouldn´t even work if it was just American recipients because most are already factored into the budget.

Fifty years ago in the ´Solid South´ you couldn´t get elected as dog catcher running as a Republican. Now, the reversal is true. The only Democrats with a chance come from gerrymandered black districts. The far left now controls the Democrat Party. They left the South for Marxism and we Southerners have long memories.

US investigators think that Malaysian Airlines flight 370 remained airborne for four more hours after vanishing from its last recorded position - raising the startling prospect the plane could have been hijacked. Officials suspect that the plane flew for a total of five hours based on data automatically downloaded from the Boeing 777´s Rolls Royce engines and sent back to the ground as part of a routine monitoring program. US counter-terrorism teams are now pursuing the astonishing possibility that the plane and its 239 passengers were diverted to an undisclosed location ´with the intention of using it later for another

A report issued by investigators inside the Environmental Protection Agency found rampant abuse in employees´ use of the agency´s government credit cards, warning that officials were ignoring a long list of safeguards designed to avoid the waste of taxpayer dollars. The EPA´s Office of Inspector General found $79,254 in ´prohibited, improper or erroneous´ spending in a sample of $152,602 in transactions.

Olympia, Wash. — An attempt to fight racism at a community college may have backfired. A group of employees at South Puget Sound Community College sent out an invitation to all 300 staffers. The "Staff, Faculty and Administrators of Color" encouraged employees to reply to the invitation to find out the confidential date and time of what was being called a "happy hour" to "build support and community" for people of color.

Trenton — A new effort is underway in the state Legislature to allow unauthorized immigrants to legally drive in New Jersey, setting up what could be the next state debate over immigration policy. Under the measure, New Jersey would be required to issue photo “driving privilege” cards to residents who could not prove that they were in this country legally but were able to show they lived in the state. “It’s about public safety,” said state Sen. Joseph Vitale (D-Middlesex), a sponsor. “Some of the undocumented are driving anyway. This isn’t to excuse the fact that they’re undocumented. But they’re on

California loves Tesla Motors. The Palo Alto electric car maker´s Model S sedan is the state´s new eco-luxury status symbol. Californians bought more than a third of Teslas sold globally last year. Residents of the state pack the order list for Tesla´s next offering, a sport utility vehicle. California pollution-control policies enable Tesla to rake in tens of millions of dollars each year from selling environmental credits to other automakers — a key source of Tesla´s revenue.

Asbury Park interim school superintendent Robert Mahon earns $605 a day, or about $105,000 a year in his temporary gig running the schools for this Monmouth County town. And that´s on top of the $104,000 annual pension he earned before retiring as superintendent of Ocean Township schools. Mahon is one of 45 retired school superintendents earning big salaries on top of their pensions, according to a New Jersey Watchdog investigation into a costly loophole in the state pension system. Mahon never stopped working when he took early retirement in 1995, according to the report. Instead he has worked as a temporary

The Boston public school system, as it prepared to make condoms available to students at all its high schools last fall, received what seemed like the perfect donation from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health: 40,000 free condoms. But now the system is pulling the donated contraceptives from its schools after some parents raised questions about whether the messages and images on the wrappers are appropriate for teenagers, even as they voiced support for the condom-distribution policy. The wrappers featured such messages as “One lucky lady,” “hump one,” and “tasty one,” which was accompanied by picture of a shark preying

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too.

The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort.
