It'd be funny if it weren't real

The Cliffs Notes on the Alabama taxation system: Our property taxes are the lowest in the country. Our sales taxes are some of the highest in the country. And we begin to collect income tax from a family of four once they earn $4,600 a year, more than $10,000 below the federal poverty line.

Sounds pretty immoral to me. So where's the state Christian Coalition? Oh, that's right: fighting to retain segregation-era language in the constitution.

The saddest thing is not that things are this way, but that people persist in voting to keep things this way.
