Crazy And Evil
Welcome to Alabama.The Montgomery Water Works and Sanitary Sewer Board began enforcing a section of the new law on Sept. 1 by requiring new applicants for service to first prove they are legally in the United States, according to the filing. The water board suspended the policy after being notified that Blackburn had temporarily suspended implementation of the state law.
Allgood Water Works also posted a sign on its office that "to be compliant with new laws concerning immigration, you must have an Alabama driver's license or an Alabama picture ID card on file at this office before Sept. 29 or you may lose water service."
Freedom. Smell it.

It's not very American and tolerant and fair-play and all, but if these crazy weasels want to secede from the United States, let them.
Yes, I know: These Klan-lovin' Mitwissers aren't supposed to be representative of what were once the Old Confederate states -- but, too, also, the people living in these areas who don't support this kind of thing should raise their voices in opposition. Strongly.
I'm tired of having to cater in any way to this racist, misogynistic, homophobic, You Better Get Raht Wit' Gunz-n-Jezus, Antebellum vision of Reality. It needs to be rebuked and rejected as any kind of vision for America... and if that's truly what the majorities want in these areas, let them go their own way in their own country.
You addled bunch of peacocks want to rebuild the 'Old South'? Want to put back the drinking fountains and bathrooms and separate seating in buses and theaters and at lunch counters for "Coloreds"? Want to restrict hiring and home ownership and college admission to Whites / The Right Kind O' Christian / Native-Born Only?
Then go ahead, you Troglodyte genetically-damaged inbred throwbacks -- here's your own little aryan nation; leave the rest of us alone. We have adult work to do. And when we restrict your coming back to the United States Of America, as 'tourists' or 'immigrants' or 'foreign guest workers', you can complain then, too.
Not to put too fine a point on it or anything.
