    I don't understand why you are stuck on blacks. We are not the majority in our party for crying out loud. This is what Redress kept trying to explain to you.

    IQ is like fission. Every atom has the potential to blow up a city. In spite of that unbridled potential, most don't.

    Not all smart people are venal as well. Just FYI.

    So what were you trying to imply about liberal voters ?????
    These data don't tell us anything about who's bringing the average down. This is a ranking of states based on completion of college - a small proportion of the population. I think that if you compare this with a ranking based on completion of high school, some of your "worst" states may become some of the best.

    Strengths? We can see the shape education is in and now the liberals want the government to look after their health care as well! There is a great ballsup already.

    Of the four, God and guns are all there is left to believe in.

    Hell was education even a topic in the republican primaries???

    Not coincidentally, liberals now outnumber conservatives and are winning more and more elections without any intellectual merit to their platform whatsoever. Campaign strategies have to be designed at a third-grade level these days.

    Dark, scary days ahead with this worthless, brainless voting bloc running things.
    I believe it. The pity is that our kids are even worse. There are kids I know at the local high school who can hardly speak a coherent sentence. Culprit? Multiple choice and the general dumbing down of curriculum.

    American, you know the real reason why we are falling behind the rest of the world?

    Arrogance and laziness.....

    As a whole, our children probably spend more time on social networks, video games, and watching TV than other kids around the world. The average household do not put the focus into education like other countries do. America is kind of like the jocks from Revenge of the Nerds. We think we are invincible and we do not feel like we can lose.

    Also we let media and politicians tell us how to think because we are too lazy to think on our own. We continually fight each other over stupid things while the rest of the world just pass us by.

    Our downfall is not going to be China or India or Russia. It is going to our ignorance.
    I think that's the first actual response to the OP.

    Pretty good.too!

    Ah. So you don't understand the issue, you just like using right wing talking points that are all fluff with no substance. Typical for a conservative.

    Meanwhile back at the ranch, it looks like the IRS worked closely with your beloved White House during the audit targetting scandal.

    Ah. So you prefer to ascribe positions to someone rather than actually understanding what their position actually is. Very weak. Typical conservative. You're doing an excellent job supporting my position.

    Dirtiest, most scandalous administration of all time, and blind liberals are lapping it up like sheep.
    Conservatives have such a short memory and do love to make silly overgeneralizations. Willful ignorance seems to be a favorite of theirs.
