    America


    America’s Best-Educated States

    10. Minnesota
    9. New York
    8. New Hampshire
    7. Virginia
    6. New Jersey
    5. Vermont
    4. Connecticut
    3. Colorado
    2. Maryland
    1. Massachusetts


    America’s Worst-Educated States

    4. Kentucky
    3. Arkansas
    2. Mississippi
    1. West Virginia

    So what were you trying to imply about liberal voters ?????
    Actually a better comparison would be to compare the urban and rural areas in terms of education and intelligence and political persuasion I think people would actually get some useful information as that breakdown would reflect the actual political divide.

    LOL

    I can't believe that you just introduce race in this topic. I'm not going to even entertain it because this thread will switch to another internet race war.


    FOLKS

    THIS IS PROOF THAT REPUBLICANS RACE BAIT JUST AS MUCH AS DEMOCRATS !!!!!!

    Yeah, I mean, if there's one demographic that has really been hamstringing the public's math and science education, it's liberals!

    Parts of the right wing have become so disconnected from reality that it's almost comical. It quite literally alters their senses. You've all seen how some of the more rapid right-wingers will insist that Michelle Obama is a giant fat cow. They hate the President of the United States so much that it freaking alters their visual perception of his wife.

    If you read the article, it says that Americans are as smart as they have been--it's the other countries which have improved at a greater rate.
    The average has gone up. Americans' scores haven't gone down.
    I may be wrong.

    So you can't answer my question?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

    And nobody on their side wants to talk about where that infamous "race card" ever came from in the first place or who empowered its use.
