Remember these politicians' names folks and DON"T FORGET TO VOTE. Start a page with two lists if necessary, like the Harri Ann Smith side in the "VOTE FOR" column and VALESKA, TYSON and "Wigwam Bob" RILEY in the other. Keep the list after this next election because many will not run until 2012. More importantly donate what you can. MONEY WINS CAMPAIGNS. DON'T CRAWL UNDER A ROCK. Put up signs, call friends and relatives - it's time WE ran this state.

Don't forget Ronnie "the rat" Gilley. He is the one who closed CC. The Governor nor the task force closed it. Their was no order from either one of them saying CC had to close. Gilley did this himself for publicity.

This state could use the money made in taxes off these casinos, we are giving it to Florida,Georgia and Mississippi! Everyone always needs to vote and be active in politics that affect YOU.It is stupid to spend all this money on fighting casinos.People are going to gamble no matter what,We need to VOTE on this issue and let the people of Alabama decide this not the LAWMAKERS!!!!!. Some of the politicians are making a mane for themselves for future goals in politics!!

The Gov. had the troopers from the gambling task force staged 20 miles north of Dothan ready for an early morning raid to take all the machines from country crossing. Word of the raid reached Ronnie Gilley and he acted. Ronnie Gilley locked the doors to prevent losing all his machines. He has since been fighting hard to reopen without a raid but courts have ruled against him. He continues to fight. He is a major investor in Country Crossing in Dothan and stands to lose a bundle if the casino is unable to reopen.

They lost my support by calling it "bingo".
I am by far, not a dumbass cheerleader. I have a mind of my own, Gilley, and know a jackass when I see them, and it isn't those you hate, Gilley.
