    Roy Moore’s resemblance to George Wallace is very striking. Both justified their hateful prejudices as moral and democratic imperatives, warned of terrible consequences from not sustaining their bigotry and both made sweeping, dictatorial-styled edicts.

Greed seems to rule when it comes to coal, oil, fracking, and the nuclear industries. Renewable energy sources are available and if the big corporations would put some of their obscene profits into solar, electric cars, wind, and geothermal energy we could start to reverse some of the harm done.
