Come to Alabama and participate in a true contact sport. Become an Alabama State Senator and show us your best moves! If you haven’t heard already, a fight broke out on the floor of the Alabama State Senate yesterday, on thier last day in session. You can read more about it here.
A local news source quoted Senator Charles Bishop as saying: “He (Senator Lowell Barron) called me a son of a bitch. Where I grew up that is somebody talking bad about your mother and when he did I responded with my right hand…”
Because of the rest of the country’s perception of Alabama, I understand there are some new slogans being considered for our state. Below are a few which have been proposed:
Alabama – yes we have electricity
Alabama – I use to could play football
Alabama – Thank God for Mississippi, without them we’d be last in everything
Of course, our official state motto is “Audemus Jura Nostra Defendere” which is Latin for “We Dare Defend Our Rights”. Should that perhaps be changed to “Audemus Matres Nostra Defendere” which (might be) Latin for “We Dare Defend Our Mamas“!?
Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!
