Mike Hubbard convicted


Recommended Posts





That situation didn't mean the $61,500 a year Hubbard made as Alabama House Speaker, a job he said "generates virtually no income."

That didn't include the $163,000 a year his wife made as a professor at Auburn University.

That didn't include the $75,000 of commissions a year he made from the sports media conglomerate IMG.

That didn't include the take-home pay from the Auburn Network, which at one point was $132,000.

Hubbard wanted more, more, more ...

The problem wasn't that Hubbard did't know where the line was; it's that he erased it.

There are more emails to come, including a prescient warning from former Gov. Bob Riley to Hubbard.

"From now on you and I are going to be suspect in everything we do," Riley wrote to Hubbard. "The question now is DO YOU 'WANT' to be Gov. - or - make a lot of money: good thing is you could do either but I am not sure it's possible to do both."

I wonder if this could be a sign of things to come in the pharma lobbiest group.. some how I expect them to be much more sophisticated as a global company and not likely to get caught buying power.. they have too much experience I would not doubt most fear the power of pharma ... add gov't power .. kind of a no brainer they will never face the music. 


I added up how much loot this lad made a year... $431,500.00 per year.  I know I can't imagine it living on disability even if I were well I doubt I would break 100 grand a year.. and do so very happily... likely work my butt off on over time ect.. happily did I say that... I don't know what folks in the USA get on disability but here in Canada gov 't disability barely feeds a person. 61 grand would be several times my yearly income.  

I think this could be a problem for the Republicans come November. 

Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey. 


There is a crack in everything ..That's how the light gets in :)
