Yep.

Detroit is another fine example of what decades of Democrat leadership leads to.

Any more questions???
You really need to research yourself.
Only one at the moment... are you this much a jackass in real life, or only on Topix?

Hmmm... nothing about red state vs. blue state.

not true, no more than 20%, I was there and many blacks were draftees, worthless for the most part.

You paint a very broad brush regarding liberals, when in fact the highest earning jobs are all located in liberal states. This is a fact, and you know this.
One city in particular is not indicative of all liberal states.
Liberal states still pay the highest amount in federal taxes, while our states receive the least back - all verifiable also. I need not supply you the links - you seem very adept at retrieving this info, but if you'd like, I will supply you links.
Even a self proclaimed conservative democrat, as you've espoused yourself to be, knows this to be true.
without blacks and mexicans demorats could never get elected. How many of those great paying jobs do they account for?

BTW, no republican watches Springer and virtually all of his "guests" are clearly democrats, if they even bother to vote.

I've seen this right wing propaganda site before. It speaks of elected presidents and the "welfare states" but gives no specific macros as to actual dollar amounts being paid per state / thus, this site is merely a sham to appease you and your base, but nothing more. Let's get to actual numbers from the CBO, which has actual verifiable data, not the nonsense you just put a link to;
http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofil...
If you fail to read the entire report, you will in fact see should you take the time, the highest earners in the nation pay the highest portions of federal taxes. This would include all liberal / Blue States, which in fact do have the highest income ratios than the rest of the country.
Therefore, all red states are in fact excluded / their cost of living is lower, right to work and lower state income taxes mean less capital can be attributed to these states.
Let's look even deeper now - just for fun;
http://www.forbes.com/sites/joelkotkin/2012/1...
Bottom line - Blue states subsidizing red states is not a myth, but has been a reality for over 50 years.
an estimated 62% of blacks will qualify for Medicaid, not insurance policies, that tells me a lot about who's getting the majority of welfare.
Funny, I don't know 1 white family on welfare or food stamps. In fact all my white friends grew up to be productive members of society.

Of the states with the lowest income, eight had among the 10 highest poverty rates. Mississippi had the highest poverty rate in the country, at 22.6% of residents, compared to the national rate of 15.9%.
The poorest states in the country are almost entirely found in the South, with the exception of New Mexico. The wealthiest states can be found all across the country, including three in New England, four in the Mid-Atlantic, and two outside the contiguous 48 states.
Let's see if I have this right, according to you, lazy whites on welfare vote for republicans, the very republicans who would like to reduce the amount paid out in welfare benefits?
Which would harm them financially?

Seems like a contradiction to me. Where am I going wrong?

New Mexico borders Mexico, yet it's not in the south? Could the high rates of poverty/welfare have anything to do with it having the highest percentages of Mexicans?

"Bush admits humans cause global warming, but rebuffs action
July 06, 2005: During the Group of Eight meeting in Gleneagles, Scotland, President Bush acknowledged -- for the first time -- that pollution generated by humans is contributing to global warming. However, behind the scenes his delegation kept up the pressure to water down the international action plan on the issue. In the G8's Communique on Global Warming, U.S. negotiators tried -- but failed -- to delete mention of how higher temperatures affect climate, soften goals for reducing global warming gas emissions and block more stringent environmental regulations for World Bank power projects. In the end, the Bush administration lost the battle. The final statement pledged that all countries would act "with resolve and urgency" to meet the objective of "reducing greenhouse gas emissions." The other seven countries also reaffirmed their commitment to the Kyoto Protocol, which the president opposes. They also rejected the president's claim that mandatory pollution limits would "wreck" their economies and are moving forward with cutting emissions."

Idiot, there is n-o-t-h-i-n-g in that pointing blame at Dubyah. Idiot. With or without quotation marks. idiot. How can you be so stupid without realizing how stoopid you are?

Okay, I posted that without the research. I DID make my point to the li'l ol' bigot though, didn't I? BTW, both my first two DIs were Nam vets. Also my first mentor- he was black, my DIs were Puerto Ricans. Harmony Church, Ft Benning, Ga. Not only are the old WWII barracks gone, not even the streets remain- it's just a scrubby forest now. Kings Pond is still there, though. Also, the Ranger Training area is just down the road a bit. Interestingly, the gate to Victory Drive(at Harmony Church area) was still manned last time I was there, though no one knows why.

Blacks account for 13% of the population.

Are you alluding to Mexican Americans? Republicans never will have that vote - never did anything to entice the vote.

I don't have metrics on jobs - can't supply what I don't have.

Now that we have the "lord almighty Obama" in the White House, all the bad countries( Iran, China, etc.) are shaking in their boots. The truth is they are laughing at him and the USA. The big question is "WHO IS GOING TO START A WAR FIRST?" Obama is too weak to stop a war, and when it comes, where is HE going to hide? When it comes, I'm hunting liberals.
