I thought this was interesting...

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning last November's Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million
McCain: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal’s and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

Obama will be voted out, in 2012.

Let's be honest. None of you who find this appealing really care whether there's any shred of truth to it. You'll just believe it because it reinforces your beliefs about how wonderful it is to own guns.

So just carry on, people-who-believe-guns-are-wo nderful, and don't let any inconveniences about truth or facts get in your way! In other words, just keep on living the way you always have.

More important, the "unreported stats" listed in this e-mail are all wrong:

&#9632;President-elect Barack Obama actually carried 28 states (and the District of Columbia), not 20 as claimed in the message. Sen. John McCain carried only 22 states, not 30.

&#9632;The total area of states won by Obama is actually 1,483,702 square miles, significantly more than the 580,000 stated by the e-mail. McCain’s states have an area of 2,310,315 square miles, not the 2,427,000 claimed.

&#9632;The population of counties carried by Obama is just under 183 million, not the 127 million claimed. McCain carried counties with a total population of just under 119 million, far fewer than claimed in this message.

&#9632;The murder rate for counties carried by Obama was 6.56 per 100,000 inhabitants, less than half the rate claimed in the message. The rate for counties carried by McCain was 3.60 per 100,000, much higher than claimed in the message.

Wow, you were able to type all this, and on the first of the month, you must have got to the store early! Just guessing, that anyone who spends as much time on topix as you, can't hold a job, and I bet your kids are the onlys children sad, when school is called off, because there they can at least get someone to pay attention to them and not a computer, and get a hot meal!
