    Default Alabama Man

    Google it. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

    Should we start with the couple arrested on I10 with 2 lbs of meth in the car?

    Or the 48 yo man arrested for messaging a 14 yo girl offering her a roll in a porn film?

    How about the guy who was arrested for killing his mum and burning her in her car . . .on mothers day last year?

    This is too easy. Gonna check out NJ and SC next.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    There's also this New York Man:

    Ogdensburg, N.Y. — An Upstate New York man’s obituary is going viral, thanks to a mix of humor and brutal honesty.

    “Cody James left us on August 8, 2020, as a result of injuries sustained from being a dumb ass,” the obit for Cody James Holland warns. “He drank, drove, and didn’t wear his seat belt! Please, don’t be a dumb ass!”

    Holland, a resident of Ogdensburg in the North Country, was 25 years old when he died of an apparent drunk driving crash Saturday. No other details of his death were released, as the Frary Funeral Homes posting focused largely on personal tidbits.

    Ohh, this New York Man takes the cake: Sets his own house on fire with fireworks....but fails to notice!

    In regards to a recent protest in Mobile, people are saying that the I-10 corridor (from Jacksonville to San Diego) is the most traveled route among human traffickers in the U.S. right now. I am totally oblivious to what that means, honestly. Do they mean that there are people from Latin America being forced to work for little if any wages, or do they mean Americans are being kidnapped? Or both?

    As far as the OP goes, you could do Alaska next, then Arkansas and so on. Crazy, violent, horrific behaviour is all around us. All of us.

    Indeed. If we look, we can find examples of Dum Basses in every state. People are people. It does seem, however, that concentrations are higher in some places... <G>

    Ha, it was a brainfart on my part ( predictive text suggested Breitbart!) but I'm sure the two meanings dovetail nicely.

    I'm not sure we'd want to know all that goes on on our highways . . . But your last line is exactly my point. Yeah, we have our share of criminals and many of them end up in Tallahassee (our Capitol), and the media, and subsequently the armchair pyoondites here, have been milking stories out of Florida for-ever. Yes, our politics provide a target rich environment for professional and amateur mudslingers alike.

    Next time one of you knuckleheads posts a reply like, "Florida Man", aside from being lazy, poorly thought out feedback, keep in mind, almost every resident here likely hails from somewhere near you . . . (Ok, Ron Desantis is homegrown from Jacksonville, says a lot of stupid crap and you should flog him when the mood strikes. Same goes for the idiot sherriff in Marion county.)

    But stop with the "Florida Man" bullspit already!

    I get it. Sane, reasonable human beings don't love being lumped together with the knuckleheads in their state. I'm not real fond of being from the only state ever to specifically, constitutionally, forbid black people.

    But I am. Doesn't do me, or anyone, any good to deny it, or bristle when someone reminds me. All I can do is attempt to set a counter-example, and correct things as I'm able.

    I've never used the 'Florida Man' label, as I haven't seen enough evidence that the state has earned that sort of special recognition. Though I've seen some. So are you saying you reckon your state wouldn't make the Top10 list in that regard? Who you figger would be ahead of you? <G>

    What I'm getting at is that I'm weary of the broad brush, lumping together, leg humping smearing that goes on. Not just here but worldwide. This forum is but a microcosm of attitudes that pervade our society and a shift is afoot. I guess what I'm suggesting is that the seperatism has past its best by date.
    Are you ready to help? Or continue to hinder? (Meaning the proverbial 'you'.)
