    My opinion? Do you disagree that Jim Crow laws kept black people oppressed for generations? This is not an opinion question.

    Too lazy to go to bls.gov and see how many jobs were created? The rich are creating jobs in TX, maybe you ought to consider moving. That would mean taking personal responsibility which of course we cannot have.

    I love Ohio, grew up there, but am totally depressed going back there based upon the economy that progressives have created. Your entire govt. was thrown out on their ass this past Nov. so let's see what the new govt. will do there. You seem to think that the Federal Govt. creates jobs, all the Federal Govt does is give the incentive to others through the tax code to do that. What the states do then is their choice. Yours chose poorly.

    What do Jim Crow laws have to do with this thread topic and individuals keeping more of what they earn?

    Jim Crow is just one of the reasons the rich didn't earn their money fairly.

    The "Bush tax cuts" went into place eight years ago. Unemployment rates were relatively low until 2009.

    What exactly are you talking about....??

    and winter is still wet

    from the newseek link:

    Where can you go to escape the recession? Try any of these 10 places. Oh, and be prepared to wear red.

    Like a massive tornado, the Great Recession upended the topography of America. But even as vast parts of the country were laid low, some cities withstood the storm and could emerge even stronger and shinier than before. So, where exactly are these Oz-like destinations along the road to recovery? If you said Kansas, you’re not far off. Try Oklahoma. Or Texas. Or Iowa. Not only did the economic twister of the last two years largely spare Tornado Alley, it actually may have helped improve the landscape.

    NEWSWEEK has compiled a list of the 10 American cities best situated for the recovery. These are places where the jobs are plentiful, and the pay, given the lower cost of living, buys more than in bigger cities. In other words, places unlike much of the rest of the country. The cities, most of which lie in the red-state territory of America’s heartland, fall into three basic groups. There’s the Texaplex—Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston—which has become the No. 1 destination for job-seeking Americans, thanks to a hearty energy sector and a strong spirit of entrepreneurism. There are the New Silicon Valleys—Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Salt Lake City; and urban northern Virginia—which offer high-paying high-tech jobs and housing prices well below those in coastal California. And then there are the Heartland Honeys—Oklahoma City, Indianapolis, and Des Moines, Iowa—which are enjoying a revival thanks to rising agricultural prices and a shift toward high-end industrial jobs.

    Cutting the Unemployment Line Unlike the Sun Belt states and cities along the East and West coasts, these locales not only grew during the boom of the mid-2000s, they suffered least in the Great Recession. The fact that they are mostly in red states should give the newly ascendant GOP comfort as it tries to deliver on its election-year promise to right the economy. That isn’t to say all the blue states will remain weather-beaten. Wall Street, heady with cheap money, has sparked a return to opulence. And the strong demand for high-tech products and services will likely keep places like Boston, San Francisco, and San Diego from devolving into fancy versions of Detroit. Yet given the results of last week’s election and the increasing odds against another bailout of state governments, the near-broke and highly regulated blue states will be hard-pressed to generate much new employment.

    For sheer economic promise, no place beats Texas. Though the Lone Star State’s growth slowed during the recession, it didn’t suffer nearly as dramatically as the rest of the country. Businesses have been flocking to Texas for a generation, and that trend is unlikely to slow soon. Texas now has more Fortune 500 companies—58—than any other state, including longtime corporate powerhouse New York.

    Aw, quit whining and take care of yourself. You can always find mistakes in U.S. history but we have the best economy in the world. If you aren't successful in it, you only have yourself to blame.
