This part is also precious. “Do you think the white people of Alabama would let me adopt a white baby?” he asked. The host and guests in the paused for a moment before Holmes continued, “Do you think the white folks in Alabama, the white authorities will permit Alvin Holmes to adopt a white baby in Alabama? Now just answer that yes or no.”

Easy: when in office, Republicans take away your rights, raise your taxes, and start wars for no good reason. I'd vote for an idiot Democrat rather than those things any day.

Sounds like you have Republicans confused with Democrats. Democrats are the ones who take away your rights, start wars for no good reason, and raise your taxes. Hell, raising your taxes and taking away your rights are Democrats' two favorite things to do, well, other than marrying mules and making mutant babies that is.

Well, no.

The trick is that you have to pay attention to what Republicans actually do while they are in office, which is usually very different than what they say they do.

Alvin Holmes is actually a decently solid state legislator. He just has the habit of injecting race into a lot of areas where it may not be necessary.

He was just trying to get the mule vote. Next week he'll start working on the goats.

I swear we're 6 months away and the pandering and trying to invent issues which aren't there for the political base to get riled up over is already reaching a sickening level.

First, they came for the mules.

Then they came for the goats.

Then they came for the crypto-goats.

I guess that's sort of the John C. Calhoun/Stephen Douglas defense...

I thought it was a given that State Legislators often say stupid things, but it was only interesting when one at the Federal level did the same. Or does that only apply to Republicans?

Alabama.









It's basically a little slice of hell on earth. A hole in the planet where millions of people who didn't finish high school worship one or another college football team they have no association with, where millions more idiots gather on weekends to watch other idiots drive cars in a circle, and where there is a county with almost one in four adults on (mostly fraudulent) disability payouts. Fuck Alabama, and this moron with his mule marriages.

I think Hale County is more a demonstration how even good intentions can cause problems with government-run disability programs than anything else.

Alabama's a great place to live. Low housing costs, low energy costs, and good work if you know where to look for it. Open country, BBQ, and friendly people. I like it here. Feel free to visit any time.

What are the "good intentions" in defrauding your fellow citizens?

Exactly what the article pointed out. These really are people in a situation where having back pain disqualifies you from essentially every available job. Nobody is laughing maniacally here because they're stealing from the country- a lot of them really don't see any other way of doing things, and they're being helped along by a doctor who sympathizes with their pain. No laws are being broken here.

And what's the end result of all that? People who the program was never intended to serve are getting on it and sucking money out of it. Don't be angry at the people- it's not their fault. It's an inherent flaw with the system of government trying to give people a hand up. That's where the ire needs to be directed.

Oh, you KNOW I'll speak up when they come for the crypto-goats. That's where I'll draw the line. They can have my crypto-goat when they pry it from my open-source hands.

That's ridiculous. "I don't see another way of doing things" is not an excuse to cheat and steal.

I think, technically, a race track, is an ellipse, but it's been a long time since my math degree. I think, certainly, most standard NASCAR race tracks are not circles.

Maybe a practicing mathematician can clarify these claims.

I thought he was talking about all the downtown loops and the idiots that can't figure out how to navigate them.
