Alabama Senator Sets Up a GoFundMe Account for the State

You know your state is in trouble when they create a GoFundMe account to get through a budget crisis. Alabama State Senator Paul Sanford recently made a GoFundMe account for the state to make up for a $300 million budget shortfall.
The account has been up for a total of four days and it’s gotten $613 dollars so far with a $300 million goal.
The Alabama GoFundMe account describes why they exist:
The State of Alabama is experiencing tight financial times and needs your help. Legislators are debating possible financial solutions but are finding that Raising Taxes are not wanted by the citizens of Alabama. Rather than have the Government come after your hard earned money you can now send an amount that fits your budget, even request where your money be used. You can determine what functions of Government are a priority to you.
I just wanted to say, alright Alabama. I know you are struggling with hard times, but compared to the other GoFundMe accounts-- you are kinda just a big fat joke. There are people with real struggles. Like people paying for medical expenses because they are sick, or needy. The taxpayers already pay for you to figure out your problems!

Here are a list of other accounts that should be making more then the State of Alabama account:

A Wedding Fund for Two Stray Cats I Found
Vet Fees for My Cousin's Pet Rat That is Sick
The College Chick Who Needs Dough to Spring Break in Vegas
Money for a Pool in My Backyard
But hey, I’m not the only one that’s snarky about it...Most people donated as a joke (I think). Check it out.

Here are some of the people that donated to the account:

Daniel - $5
Admit that Georgia is a better state than Alabama.
Jordan -$10
Please earmark this donation to be used for evil and nefarious deeds.
Rusty - $5
Please use this money for cab fare to your local library and check out any economics text book by Friedrich Hayek

Beyonce's Luxurious Houses !!!
I want to stay at Beyonce's place...just for one day.. lol.. As two of the most influential artists of our time, Beyonce and Jay Z have amassed wealth unimaginable for most people. After renting homes around LA for years – they rented some incredible places! – they finally settled down with the purchase of a massive home in Bel Air, CA in August 2017, shortly after snagging an East Hamptons pad. Needless to say, Beyonce’s House is one for the record books! (1) Beyonce House in Bel Air, CA In July 2017, word got out that a power couple was interested in a brand new development in Bel Air. Media outlets began reporting that Beyoncé and Jay Z made an astronomical offer on the hillside mansion at the end of a secluded street in Bel Air. The Los Angeles Times Hot Property section confirmed this news on August 18th of 2017. Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s $88 million offer was accepted and the purchase was official. (2) Beyonce House in East Hampton, NY Just one month after their massive $88 million purchase in Bel Air, Beyoncé and Jay Z have dropped another $25,925,000 on an East Hampton, waterfront home. Yes, you hear that correctly. $25.925 MILLION DOLLARS! (3) Beyonce House in New Orleans, LA This home carries a unique story. Constructed in 1925, this building was a church at that time. Later on, this Presbyterian Church was converted into a studio for ballet dance. Now a well-known structure, you will often hear it referred to as Garden District Palace. (4) Beyonce House in Malibu (Former Rental) After the birth of their twins in June 2017, Beyoncé and Jay Z rented this massive Malibu estate for a reported $400,000/month. HAHA.....$400,000 a month.. yeah.... haha..
