    Gov. Riley has waged an aggressive, illogical campaign against Country Crossings. Why? Since it seems obvious that he, his son-in-law, Barber, and Tyson have a hidden agenda, he has definitely lost credibility. I encourage anyone who is considering a vocal stance against Country Crossings to weigh the facts. Gov. Riley has lost the moral high ground. Regardless of your personal feelings about gambling, don't support the vindictive attack on our community. Think of the 1500 employees who are worried about their jobs. And, as the Christian Coalition of AL stated in their response, Gov. Riley is not correct in his raid attempts. He clearly has an unreasonable vendetta...and, the question is, why. Our state needs jobs and economic development. I volunteer in a ministry center distributing food. In the last year alone, we saw hundreds of hard working, middle-class families lose jobs and need help for the first time in their lives. Our friends and neighbors need our support for CC.

    For the record, I consider myself to be mostly neutral on the issue of legalized gambling. I am neither democrat or republican. If you ask me I will say that I am a 'progressive conservative', if there can be such a thing! I believe in democracy and capitalism. There is one thing we the 'common folk' should all agree on, however. It is clearly up to us, the people, to get our priorities back in order. We have been much too complacent for far too long and are now witness to the affect of that complacency with the Country Crossing fiasco. We should no longer sit idly by and watch as our elected officials and business leaders ignore their inherent responsibilities to the people they serve. That they are allowed do so my friend, is our responsibility!

    Laws can be interpeted from one extreme to the other extreme. Laws should be interpreted in favor of the will of the people, not the will of the few. Are we actually going to have a "Salem Witch trail and Burning" in this age of enlightenment?

    Well, if CC is allowed to remain open, I hope everyone will be wise and responsible with their money. I've already heard several stories of people who stay there and gamble away their money, then are unable to pay their bills. PLEASE don't do that to your families! Yes, it is your choice to do that if you please, but it's also YOUR own stupid fault if that happens! Several things are legal, but if you abuse it, the innocent suffer, and you will have to anwser for that one day. Just be careful please. Oh, and just because the Christians are condemning the casino, doesn't mean that they are judging and condemning you as a person.

    The citizens of this county should join together by the state laws of Alabama to form a citizens arrest of Bob Riley his task force and his troopers . If the people stood up and did this it would not happen again.
