Coco LaFemme: There are several states where, if we as a nation cut them loose, we wouldn't suffer for it. Alabama is one of those states. Take whatever may be of value to the government out, and then burn it to the ground.
CapeFearCadaver: You're an ass. Put down the whiskey.I like the K in Magic... Are you a Wizard, too?
libranoelrose: Hobo Jr.: libranoelrose: Hickory-smoked: smitty04: People in Alabama also do not trust their politicians.Though, in Birmingham, they love the governor.I just knew that if I kept reading this thread long enough something would make me laugh. Bravo!People always misinterpret that line.The Guvnah was the first integrated strip joint in Birmingham. It burned down under mysterious circumstances in 1971.It's not as funny if you take it so literally since we were discussing politicians.Though this would be a good time to turn this into a mixed race stripper thread...

cmb53208: LouDobbsAwaaaay: Cut this tumor loose from the rest of the country.On second thought, maybe not: we did after all give the nation Scott Walker, Paul Ryan, and Ron Johnson. Those three people don't exactly make Wisconsin look very bright.As far as segregation goes, two words: Milwaukee suburbs
smitty04: Britney Spear's Speculum: Alabama will vote to keep the language. The spokesmen will cite "tradition" and "history"Democrats are dying out in Alabama (George Wallace is gone), sounds like it is time to throw the whole thing out and start over again.
Snatch Bandergrip: The United States should be segregated from Alabama.
Darth_Lukecash: Somacandra: Why would you need a substitute amendment? The revision should just strike out the offending language, including the ban on publicly funded education.According to the article- the original amendment took out everything-but was rejected because people were afraid that taxes would go up because of public schools.This isn't a race issue- but weather or not they want their kids to be educated. Or rather- pay for it.
