    Are you drunk? Go read the thread.

    Who said Alabama was filled with liberals? What in the Fook are you going on about?

    hiya headkicktoleg,

    actually, Alabamans themselves, along with their former Governor, think the nature of their State is a laugh riot.
    http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2016/11/gov_bentley_our_education_syst.html

    Governor Bentley goes on to say how he's going to tackle this problem.

    Bentley then goes on to resign under the threat of impeachment for multiple felonies and ultimately pleads to misdemeanor charges for improperly using campaign funds for his own use.

    what a state!

    Usually the criticism is less ignorant/dumb and more savage/uncivilized/lazy.

    But, I didn't say any of that particularly: I merely said that inner city problems are misstated just as pejoratively as Southern ones, despite their causes frankly being more obvious and excusable imo.

    who the hell is talking about cellphones? Everyone thats ever lived on the gulf coast cares about having reliable AC, clean tap water, a house not crawling with roaches, and roads that dont break a rim. and im sure the folks that DO care about money outnumber the ones who dont, by a substantial degree.

    Tried that. You can provide all the money, provide the best education.

    And it seems it all comes dowb to family structure, there is an epidemic in some communities where fathers are abandoning their children .

    That's an interesting perspective because Delaware and Alabama have the same percentage of fatherless children. West Virginia and Rhode Island are almost the same as Alabama. Yet they don't have the same problems as Alabama.

    Perhaps you're missing the core problem? Which is that Southern states made a concerted effort following the Civil War and again following the Civil Rights Era to assert their independence from the federal government by not providing services to their residents, especially in public schools. Over time, it has hollowed out those states' ability to prepare their entire population to be competitive on the economic stage.

    It shouldn't be surprising that many southern states are in the bottom quintile when it comes to early education.

    For comparison sake, both Rhode Island and Delaware are in the top quintile for early education (yet the same rate of fatherless children) while West Virginia is right there with Alabama.

    So what you're seeing down there is that what was originally a method of defying the federal government has led to long term intellectual and economic impoverishment of the entire state that hurts everyone who lives there.

    I've seen similar things in rural Ohio. Many people are on welfare and work shit jobs they hate to the point that they need opioids for pain in old age. Heroin is also HUGE here.

    Yet they're all against welfare and free-loaders.

    Actually when you thought we were speaking of White Trump voters you called it a shitty state and worse. Guess you are as bad as all these "other" people you say(but can't prove) talk of inner cities like this.

    Like I've always said dude. You are the other side of the coin.

    So is it or is it not a shitty state??

    It is always near the bottom if not the Bottom in scholastic testing and a state full of beggars because they are always claiming more federal aid than what they produce in federal taxes. basically I am (and every other tax payers in states that give more than receive federal taxes)paying for their shitting management year in and year out..
