The Rocket City Should Also Be Called 'Cave City'


Huntsville Cave, does it really exist?


Article Excerpt: "by Joy Russell... the backhoe bucket broke through the ground into the tunnel, steam came up out of the tunnel for about an hour. He felt this steam was caused because the temperature inside the tunnel was warmer than the air temperature. When the tunnel filled with cooler air, the steam stopped and the crew stuck their heads down into the hole and looked into the tunnel with their flashlights. The tunnel ran as far as they could see both to the North and South and the floor of the tunnel was located about 8 or 9 feet below the surface of the ground. According to Howard and Dixie Cain, there were several dumptrucks full of gravel dumped into it but this didn't begin to fill it up. The utility company finally placed a large metal pipe across the hole and ran their pipes inside of it and were able to cover it this way ..."

News Release by Sen. Shelby on Obama Gun Restrictions Executive Order


News Release

Shelby: I Will Work Tirelessly to Protect the Second Amendment, Reverse Obama’s Attempts to Restrict Constitutional Rights




WASHINGTON, DC – Monday, January 4, 2016 – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released a statement in response to reports that President Obama intends to take executive action to restrict Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms:

“The latest news that President Obama plans to circumvent Congress and attempt to restrict the constitutional right of the American people to keep and bear arms is unacceptable. The American people have witnessed time and time again a President who completely disregards the rule of law, the Constitution, and the separation of powers.

“We must not allow our leaders to act like dictators just because they are repeatedly denied a political victory. From amnesty to gun control, the American people and Republicans in Congress will continue to say ‘no’ the President’s out-of-control executive fiats.

“None of the executive actions that we expect to hear from the President would have prevented the recent tragic events in our nation. Instead of looking for ways to truly put an end to violent crime and radical Islamic terrorism, the President is once again looking to score political points by taking away the rights of law-abiding Americans to protect themselves.

“The President should know better than anyone that disarming law-abiding Americans will do nothing more than empower criminals. After all, his own hometown of Chicago has the strictest gun control laws in the country, yet its violent crime rate is among the highest in our nation.

“President Obama wants America to look more like Chicago. I'm fighting for America to look more like Alabama. That is why I will work tirelessly to protect the Second Amendment and reverse any proposals by this President to restrict the constitutional rights of the American people.”
