  1. “Heck, if halving the amount of time that the Legislature meets would be a boon to the state, why stop there? How about every four years, or once a decade? That would limit the mischief those rascals could foment, that’s for sure.”

    I could get behind that.

  2. It reminds me of a button that I once read about concering the Texas State Legislature, which said something like “How about twice every 140 years?”

    (For those not versed in Texas politics: the Texas constitution stipulates that the legislature only meet once every other year for 140 days).

  3. Roy Moore, the candidate who SAYS he wants to return our government
    to those of us who own it and pay for it, was on the Don Markwell’s
    Viewpoints talk radio program [WACV am 1170 in Montgomery] recently. I called in and asked this question, which I am attempting to
    ask of all candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, and some
    others: “Will you actively support the proposition of bringing
    Initiative and Referendum [I&R] to the voters of Alabama, both in
    your campaign, and afterward?”

    He equivocated, by saying that he would not oppose it if an I&R bill
    were passed by the legislature. He should have known that I&R is
    perhaps the best, if not only, way to return our government to us. I&R would be the key needed to, for instance, unlock the door to reforming the state constitution.

    One of his campaign issues is returning to biennial legislative
    sessions, which has provoked numerous negative editorials across the
    state. I have responded with LTEs saying that instead of either his
    idea, or the status quo, what we REALLY need is a full time
    legislature.

    Anyone who thinks I may have lost my mind can request [email to redseib@bellsouth.net] that I send them my reasoning behind the need for a full time legislature.
