Is it any surprise to see Gov. Robert Bentley accepting payola from out-of-state big oil as revealed by The Star?
Again the fate of Alabama rests in the hands of powerful, external interests with a radical, anarcho-capitalist agenda that not only seeks to circumvent environmental regulations, but also strives to dehumanize the work force by opposing minimum wage laws and mandatory safety regulations.
Gov. Bentley’s deep pockets allowed him to appear altruistic in refusing a paycheck until he was able to claim to have achieved his first-term goals. Of course, our governor’s deep pockets are only so deep. I guess it’s a good thing he has super-rich ideologues like good ol’ greasy Billy Dore to prop him up.
