That’s actually a surprisingly low number


I’m surprised it took until 2014


This is the same state where the governor used tax money to send a helicopter back to his house to get his wallet while he was on vacation


As an Alabamian, we spend money on the most worthless things and have a sham of a government most of the time. However, this is a good use of our money. $75,000 is peanuts compared to the amount wasted on stuff. At least it’s a cool slogan for our signs.


What other song shits on Neil Young and the racist Alabama Governor simultaneously?
