    California isn't even ranked in the top 10 in poverty rate. 9/10 of the worst states in poverty rates are red states.

    And yet, more socialist developed countries have less wealth disparity that the United States. Amongst advanced economies, Norway is #1, Denmark is #5, New Zealand is #13. Where is the United States? It is #23.

    I don't think we've really changed that much, Chomsky.

    Nasty extremists are just attracted to internet message boards, and everyone sees internet postings as having no consequences.

    Most people are in favor of sensible, forward thinking policies, once they articulated away from triggering code words.

    Worse. Look at where it is on the list of innovation.

    Hint: It ain't Number 1, and it's not even in the top five when we count all countries.

    And, when you consider that the US did not even make the list of 10 most desirable countries in which to live...you really gotta wonder what the Red Staters are thinking.

    There is a low cost of living because there is little development and poor infrastructure compared to many blue states.

    So I guess this means Michigan and Ohio are now red states.

    It doesn't matter why there is a difference. There is a difference. The most notable one is housing costs.

    It does matter. There is a reason people aren't scrambling to move to Pakistan, despite the very low cost of living. And there is a reason why Pakistanis move to the United States despite the much higher cost of living.
