Isn't Mississippi the poorest and worst state out of all the states economically.

No, to answer your ignorant and childish question, not in your senseless lack of reasoning anyway. In the article it said that Tunica County had the highest teenage preg's. in MS. Because of the casino's, that county is anything but poor! Green sure does talk.....??

Not sure but I do know Mississippi will vote for the right regardless of their states situation. Strange and weird to me that they don't vote left since IMO it would benefit them for the better.
