Alabama: Republicanomics At Work
The 1% get breaks.
Lower and middle class get screwed.

The state faces a shortfall of more than $250 million in 2015, despite a state constitutional amendment that requires a balanced budget. To comply with the law, state officials had been borrowing and shifting money in a way that has increased long-term liabilities, which could balloon to $700 million in coming years -- a fact that Gov. Robert Bentley (R) said he only happened to learn about the day after the 2014 elections.

Bentley campaigned on a "no new tax" platform and has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge pushed by the conservative Americans for Tax Reform, in which lawmakers promise to "oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes." Bentley also faces a Republican-majority legislature that declared 2014 the year of "taxpayer relief."

As he was sworn into office this week, Bentley appeared to change course, declaring that "everything is on the table" and that Alabama "is going to be raising revenue." But when Bentley has floated specific proposals -- such as removing state deductions for federal taxes or FICA paycheck payments -- he has been bitterly opposed by state lawmakers and hammered by Americans for Tax Reform for violating his no-tax pledge.

WHO PAYS?

Alabama has a more basic problem: a regressive tax system that requires lower-income residents to pay a higher share of their income than wealthy families. A recent report by the Institution on Taxation and Economic Policy rates Alabama's state tax system as the 12th-most regressive in the country. Among the state's regressive features are a sales tax on groceries and narrow income tax brackets that force a majority to pay the top rate.

"Alabama's upside down tax system requires low and middle income households to pay twice the share of income in state and local taxes that the top 1 percent pay," according to the Alabama Arise Citizens' Policy Project, a statewide citizens group. "Tax breaks at the top starve public services of hundreds of millions of dollars a year and force low-income Alabamians to shoulder more of those services' costs."

[But don't fret, Alabama Republicans, you can still hope for the "trickle down" first promised 30 years ago by Reagan. LOL!]


EVERY day is Christmas
for Alabama: One of the
"Taker" red states!
 

Alabama: Socialist or Communist?

Red states suck up more federal taxpayer dollars than blue states.

Alabama gets back $3.28 in U.S. taxpayer dollars for every dollar it pays in federal taxes!

Alabama depends on federal taxpayer money for 37% of its revenue!

Alabama has one of the highest percentages of federal employees per capita!

U.S. taxpayers are subsidizing Alabama...now THAT is socialism!

The Right Wing Mind

Obstructionist Whining Asshole Award

Alabama's Own U.S. Rep. Jeff Sessions:
What a whining asshole

Backwards red states reward assholes
by re-electing them.
In Alabama, Sessions has been repeatedly re-elected.
That says much about Alabama.
Maybe it's attributable to inbreeding?

Jeff Sessions HATES the poor but loves corporations.
Cut food stamps but heap favors on corporations.
The average American family pays a staggering $6,000 a year
in subsidies to Republican-friendly big business.

Then there's always crap like this:

"Privatization" is the mantra of the Republicans
Here's what it looks like in Columbiana, Alabama

Debtors' Prison:
Estimate: 1,000 people per month were going to debtors' prison in Alabama
(Let's hear it for "privatization" and Republican governance)


Lawyers Are Expensive
Legal Zoom might be an affordable option


Alabama has a lot of "moochers"
Republicans, like Jeff Sessions, HATE those
food stamp "moochers" and want to cut food stamps.
How ironic that so many food stamp recipients
are located in red states

News/Comment:

Atheists Becoming More Diverse
Atheists used to be like Republicans: Largely old white men. But unlike Republicans, atheists are becoming more diverse with increasing numbers of minorities and women.

The Civil War Isn't Over
"The Atlantic" offers some insight into the Civil War. It's the sort of insight which you don't often read about in the south, where suthreners call it "the war of northern aggression".
Read about the Civil War.
Here's another story about southerners' denial that the Civil War was about slavery.


Gov Bentley: Raise Taxes
One of the "No Tax Increases" crowd, Alabama governor Bentley, is now demanding tax increases from the "no tax increases" Republican politicians. Isn't it time to wake up, Republican voters? This is your state on Republicanomics

Roy Moore's Son: Druggie?
The 24-year-old son of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was arrested on drug possession charges on Sunday, but according to the younger Moore, the charges are just a political scheme to further attack his father over gay marriage.

Yeah, right, Caleb. And let's just ignore those earlier drug arrests. Those were probably all related to your father's homophobia, too.


Alabama Listed For Sale on E-Bay (Not Much Bidding)
Alabama was listed for sale on e-bay, with the bidding getting as high as $117.50 (update: it's currently at $2,025). Seller's remarks: "Education - 49th out of 50," the seller wrote. "15% of the state is illiterate. So, upon purchase, you might want to invest a little money in dictionaries. A whopping 60% of Alabama believes in Creationism. 60%!!!! Bring a lot of bibles!"

Supreme Court May Hear Case(s) About Alabama's Death Sentence Judges
Alabama judges override juries' recommendation of life imprisonment. Probably too appeal to "Christian" Alabama voters preference for killing, it's posited the elected judges may have pandered to the voters' love of killing. N.Y. Times (which is not generally read in Alabama).

Dubious Alabama Accomplishments

Moving To Bham?

If you plan to move to the Birmingham area, you'd better be prepared to live amongst some of the most radical right-wing teabagger types in the country. The City of Birmingham, proper, contains some liberals, but the surrounding municipalities are a bastion of right-wing radicalism.

Alabama's governorship, House and Senate are all controlled by radical right-wingers who spend way to much time focused on abortion and thinking up new ways to screw immigrants.

If you are not a radical right-winger, don't even expect to feel at home here (in the areas outside of Birmingham city limits).
  

Spencer Bachus:

Spencer Bachus, the congressman representing Alabama's 6th District, is a real jerk, a tool for the rich and an enemy of the working class. But then, he keeps getting re-elected (he's a career politician), so his constituents must be real jerks, too.

Spencer Bachus: Disgrace to humanity who should never refer to himself as a Christian.
  

Jeff Sessions:

Alabama U.S. senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is pretty much in the same category as Spencer Bachus.

How Sessions uses government statistics to lie and deceive.
  

Leeches:

While (too many) Alabamans spend a lot of time bitching about goverment spending and "welfare queens", the state is a leech. Alabama is one of the many red states which suck more money out of the federal government than it contributes. Alabama gets back something like $2.03 for every dollar it sends to the federal government.

Alabama's U.S. senator Richard Shelby is the leech-in-chief, bringing home truckfuls of money from Washington D.C. Shelby may have more government-funded buildings in his home state named after him than any other money-grubbing politician currently living.

The people who scream loudest about "socialism" and "welfare queens" are themselves America's biggest leeches. Go figure.
  

 


Waggin' Treats Suspected Of Killing Dogs

Waggin Train could kill dogs

These made-in-China jerky tenders for dogs, sold at stores, including Walmart,
could kill your dog.

In fact, it's a good idea to not buy anything from China and to not shop at Walmart,
the pipeline from China.

The inspiration for "Sweet Home Alabama"
(This song is much more honest)



An important annoucement about your flag decal:


  

 

Alabama

Where prejudice, ignornance and hate are cherished as "Southern Values"


Alabama

Where the civil war was about slavery but nobody admits it


Alabama

Where "Bless her heart" means "That stupid bitch"


Alabama

If you're from the north, expect to hear endlessly that
the civil war was "the war of northern aggression",
how it was NOT about slavery, and
how the south really didn't lose.

(The civil war is still being waged in Alabama)


Alabama

Where you don't really fit in unless you belong to
Sons or Daughters of the confederacy


Alabama

Where Republicans' pickup trucks are held together with
duct tape, baling wire, and hateful bumper stickers


Alabama

Where they hate government interference in peoples' lives,
except when it involves abortion, state-sponsored religion or guns.


Alabama

It's all about a southern "up yours" attitude:

Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama are the only three states in the country that celebrate Robert E. Lee on the same day as the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday.
Alabama State holidays include:
Robert E. Lee/Martin Luther King Birthday,
Confederate Memorial Day
Jefferson Davis' Birthday
