    The Right is and has been in denial about Kansas.

    Do you really think that is politically survivable for even Democrats in the house and senate? Please get proper meds for your neurological dysfunctions. Here in FL Calis are not welcome because all they can do is whine about the Gulf and Gulf stream being too warm when not calling into radio stations about all the tickets they earn for using CA traffic laws in jurisdictions with better laws.

    It's not survivable and the fact is, California's economy is healthy, especially when compared to what it was prior to the Dems taking back the majority.
    Sure, it's far from perfect, and we have obligations to meet. We'll do our best.

    Stop all the nonsense about Californians in Florida, when everyone knows your real issue is the snowbirds from New York and the Germans and Canadians.

    It's not too warm down there, it's too damn humid. The moment you step outside and wonder if you applied enough anti-perspirant to your CROTCH AREA, that's when you know you're living in a place with too much humidity.

    Hope you guys can figure out what to do about Sinking Miami!
    Oh wait, it's not sinking, it's being flooded. ;)

    The way I understand it the constitution in Illinois won't allow for any bankruptcy declaration nor financial insolvency. So they can just put off payment. It results in shifting the unpaid workforce to either other jobs in state or similar jobs out of state. As this happens the debt clears itself. Alternatively, and more commonly, it results in a tax rate increases until the debt is paid off.

    As a side note the Chicago region, that has the highest population density, is blue, but other then that Illinois is red by geography. It's due to an interesting political act in the early 1800s. At the time just before Illinois was a state the Chicago region was in a territory along with Wisconsin. It wasn't to be included in Illinois statehood. Some one realized that if they moved the boarder up a bit so that Chicago was in Illinois it would be likely that the congressional delegates from Illinois would be more Democratic then Republican and, so too, The Nation. Someone made a deal to include Chicago in Illinois rather then Wisconsin. Wisconsin's gotten jerked around, regularly, by the Federal government. It also lost the Upper Peninsula region to Michigan because someone in Michigan started a war with someone in Ohio over a rail line.

    One cannot expect ‘clean debate’ when the thread premise fails as a loaded question fallacy.

    They can't see reality if it bites them on the ass......the first hint they will get that something is really wrong? When the first public employee pension checks bounce......
