The moral: Do NOT move to Alabama!

AL Republicans Deny Public Housing Residents the Right to Vote
This is not really surprising, given Alabama's efforts to disenfranchise as many likely Democratic voters as possible: Alabama's attorney general made a last-minute ruling that public housing ID cards are not acceptable at the polls. DON'T MOVE TO ALABAMA.

High-Rank Alabama Republican Politician Indicted

Governor Robert Bentley: Alabama's Most Ignorant Governor?
Bentley used the phrase "You ought to eat what you kill" when talking about raiding Alabama's education budget to fund "business incentives" (i.e., pay businesses to locate in Alabama). Bentley is apparently ignorant as to why businesses DON'T want to move to Alabama: Wrong-headed right-wing politicians like Bentley and a poor educational system--which Bentley is willing to risk making even worse by robbing money from it. Alabama suffers from Red State Madness. Read more about "Eat What You Kill"

Senator Richard Shelby - Living High On The Hog
CREW took a look at Richard Shelby's political war chest, and spending. Looks like he travels first-class! 32 stays at the Michelangelo Hotel in New York City totaling $34,742, a $1,157 stay at the world-famous Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, $1,078 at the Cloister at Sea Island, $788 at the Lodge at Pebble Beach, and a total of $5,187 at New Orleans’ “super luxury” Windsor Court Hotel as well as the Roosevelt Hotel, Hilton’s 2012 “Hotel of the Year.” The list goes on and on.

Alabama: Major Moocher State
Alabama is a "taker":
Alabama is ranked 3rd among states (mostly red states) who get back more than they pay in federal taxes. Alabama gets back $3.28 for every dollar paid to the feds. This is called "socialism".

Dubious Alabama Accomplishments

Poll: Party Affiliation?
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.


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.
