Most folks may be surprised to find out Iowa has a state slogan. To be honest, finding the state slogan is not that easy to do. A simple google search finds multiple slogans that seem to be in play.
There seems to be some consensus the “Iowa: Fields Of Opportunity” is the current slogan. Or it could be “Iowa: A Place To Grow.” Either way, neither seems to reflect the new reality that the radical right Republicans in the Iowa legislature have created.
So today I will offer some suggestions that may better prepare visitors for what Iowa really is:
Iowa: A Kansas Wannabe
Iowa: Downwind From The CAFOs
Iowa: Lowest Pay In The Country
Iowa: Where Steve King Is An Intellectual
Iowa: Home To The Man That Stole The Supreme Court Seat
Iowa: We Cut Taxes And Ran Out Of Money
Iowa: Ten Years Behind In Road Repair
Iowa: Women Sort Of Welcome
Iowa: A State For Old, White Men
Iowa: Workers Don’t Count
Iowa: Education Just Makes Pointy-Headed Liberals
Iowa: Reading The Bible On The Court-House Lawn
Iowa: We Pay The MCOs Before The Medicaid Client
Iowa: Shoot Your Neighbor If He Shoots Off Newly Legal Fireworks
Well I am out of ideas at the moment, but you can bet that this legislature will give us many more ideas all year.
