    Oh the irony.

    Is NPR credible?

    That bill has not been signed into law yet but still it seems the people of Alabama want this. Even though it is wrong on so many different levels.
    Trump's obvious lies make it impossible to believe anything he says that might be true. His presidency is falling apart fast.

    A marxist questions the actions of a private group operating through the duly elected legislature....I suppose that's not ironic though...it's just what marxists do.

    credible? I'd say yes.

    biased? absolutely

    and the NPR story largely cribs from the AP story...basically a re-write...not alot of original/additional content, though, to NPR's credit, at least they linked to the actual proposed legislation.

    which includes the following language:

    "(b) Every police officer appointed and employed
    4 pursuant to this section shall be certified by the Alabama
    5 Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission and shall
    6 meet all of its requirements, including continuing education."

    So again....what's the problem? The church wants to hire (and pay for) a police officer that meets all the state requirements for a policeman and whose jurisdiction is limited:" shall be restricted to
    9 the campuses and properties of Briarwood Presbyterian Church."....How is this different than campus cops on private college campuses? Or corporate campuses?

    yes. I can do a "citizen's arrest" on a Cop I see abusing his power.

    our Constitution affirms this Right.

    .............

    of course in the real word the Thug Cop will bash me over the head and send me to Jail over my attempt to arrest him for illegal acts.

    ................

    only relevant qustion is - does this "church police" get public taxpayers funds?

    I do not.

    ------if they do ------------then they are more than a simple "citizen's arrest" police force.

    so we can assume you would not be a marxist in 1846 in AL concerning all "duly elected legislators" and their laws - including Slave Laws.

    being "duly and legally elected".

    yes?

    you would not be a marxist, and affirm slavery slavishly, had you been born 160 yrs earlier.

    Marx had not even written the communist manifesto by 1846, (off by 2 years 1848) and who knows how soon it might have gotten to Alabama after it was written in England.

    I think the point to see here is that once again, a Tea Partier will trot out the term "marxist" as an epithet to use against anyone, be they centrist, libertarian, or establishment Republican, they need not be Democrat, who differs from Tea Party orthodoxy, or in this case, who points out the fact that anyone from a movement which gets most of its "news and information" from forwarded hoax e mails and regards legitimate news sources as "fake news" has zero credibility when questioning the sources for anyone else's claim.

    Well it certainly does not affect those like I am, a real socialist. But not a Marxist.
