And we are last in a lot of things, brains included but as a state we always vote red. We get more federal money than we pay each year also. This year my county got $500,000.00 in an earmark from republican congressman Joe Bonner for an upgrade to the courthouse security system. We had surveillance camera's but our staunchly republican sheriff and former DA decided to use that federal money to put motion activated cameras which also recorded audio in violation of federal wiretapping statutes. The FBI and the U.S. attorneys office swept it under the rug but not until our county commissioners and sheriff spent over $60,000.00 retaining attorneys on the taxpayer tab when they were never charged with a crime. This is a great place to live if you like your women a little meaty and can stand the stupidity level.
