From the Files of Stuck on Stoopid in Alabama

Why Sweet Home Alabama is ranked #48 in the nation when it comes to Education.
Hugh Taylor, the superintendent of the DeKalb County Board of Education, denied a request for a Collinsville High School history club--sponsored by teacher Bradley Crawford--to attend the movie, Selma, along with other students from Crawford's classes because it contains the F-word and racial slurs.
 Taylor is an elected official, a Republican who defeated four other candidates in a 2012 election to replace Charles Warren, who retired after 12 years on the post. Before then, Taylor served as principal at Ruhama Junior High in DeKalb County.

Sweet Home Alabama, where the rich get richer and the poor are Suckers.
 Poor Alabamians continue to pay a larger share of their income in state and local taxes than upper-income earners, but the state no longer is among the "Terrible Ten," according to a report released Wednesday.
 If millionaires convince you to vote against your self interest you are a sucker. 
What looks like crazy on an ordinary day in Alabama
The recent announcement stating that the North Alabama Regional Hospital, a psychiatric facility, will be closing its doors in June simply means that there will be no more state-run mental hospitals in the Tennessee Valley.
The idea behind this was to save the state money and to shift the burden (and, of course, the cost) of care onto local communities. The claim is to "streamline" the way the state handles the long-term mentally ill by transferring them into "community-based" programs. If you define jail, as a "community-based" program, then the claim may have some truth in it.
Proof the red, republican, Alabama state legislature is pro life as long as it's in the womb.  After that, all bets are off .

With democrats like Terri Sewell who needs republicans
