Earlier, I was debating with someone about Alabama lagging behind other states in the nation. The person said that Alabama is lagging behind on lots of things. However, I said that Alabama is, however, improving. I said that Alabama is lagging behind infrastructure and education (other things as well). So what is Alabama behind on, if it hasn't already improved?

Dawg,
I see that cr*p all the time...people on those other forums claiming that Alabama isn't "progressive."
It all depends on what your definition of "progressive" is. By THEIR definitions, Alabama is not. We don't have the biggest population. We don't have the most this, or most that, or least this, or least that.
By MY definition, we are fine, or ahead of the game on a LOT of things.
And it's all a game.
Tend to your studies, and quit spending quite so much time on these useless forums!
Love,
Southlander

Oh, yes Alabama is definetly lagging behind in how much they tax people ( one of the lowest in the country) which to be makes the place appealing. You have everything you need and the room to grow unlike a lot of those dirty, overpopulated and over taxed states.

During advanced studies statisticaly those high obesity rates was in the blackbelt region( Montgomery not included)mainly because this area of the state has more poverty than the rest.
