  • Sessions: America is ‘dedicated to caring for children’ (VIDEO)

    Excerpt from AL.com:

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions says law enforcement officials do not want to separate parents from their children.

    Sessions was speaking Monday in New Orleans at the National Sheriff’s Association conference. He says enforcing immigration laws that result in the separation of children from parents is necessary.

  • 26 arrests were made at Hands Across the Border-Lake Eufaula

    Excerpt from WTVM:

    Officers and Deputies from the Georgia State Patrol, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Quitman County Sheriff’s Department, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Eufaula Police Department conducted joint road-checks in their respective states.

    The enforcement action was held to strengthen the fellowship between the states and departments. Their goal was to work to take drunk and drugged drivers off the road as well as surveying for distracted driving, child and adult restraint violations and other traffic violations.

    They expressed sincere gratitude to EPD Officer Sean Robinson and the other participating Agencies from both states.

    Friday evening’s activity included 11 written warnings and 26 arrests, including four Driving Under the Influence arrests.

  • Editorial: ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ is not a conservative anthem

    Excerpt from The Roanoke Times:

    When Corey Stewart won the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate last week, he appeared on stage to the sound of “Sweet Home Alabama.”

    This would seem a curious song choice for a Virginia politician. We are not Alabama and have never wanted to be Alabama. Granted, there’s a dearth of songs that mention Virginia, and “Sweet Home Alabama” is a rollicking little tune, so maybe we shouldn’t read too much into it.

    On the other hand, Lynyrd Skynyrd was a band that worked the Confederate flag into its logo and the National Review once hailed “Sweet Home Alabama” as one of “the 50 greatest conservative rock songs,” so it’s more likely that the song was picked intentionally. Stewart does love Confederate symbols. “Sweet Home Alabama” even takes a shot at Canada — more, accurately the Canadian rock star Neil Young —so it certainly seems to fit the current Trumpian zeitgeist.

    Meanwhile, the liberal website Slate cited Stewart’s song choice as just one more example of how he’s pandering to the most atavistic elements of the Virginia electorate. In the Slate writer’s words: “He’s a carpetbagger, but for racism.”

    Actually, both of them have it wrong. “Sweet Home Alabama” is not a conservative anthem, and it’s certainly not a cover song for racism. It is, though, one of the most misunderstood political songs of all time, one that’s even been the subject of scholarly study.
