    The Bureau of Economic Analysis released finalized 2009 per-capita income rankings this week showing Arkansas was 44th with a per-capita income of $32,423, the highest ranking the state has ever had in the 50 years since the federal government began keeping the statistics.

    Arkansas' income is about equal to that of France

    Brutus: yes, they[the French] are lazy and have found 1001 reasons not to work. We invent things and they use them to have a decent standard of living. Without us they would be living in the stone age.
    And all that is not to mention how we defend them.

    so
    if your company offered you 5 weeks vacation you would REFUSE it on the grounds that only LAZY PEOPLE take vacations?


    is THAT the prevailing conservative belief?


    LIBERALISM is much more than $

    liberalism is ;

    accepting gays into society (which America is now doing)
    accepting women and minotity in military leadership roles (which America is now doing)
    accepting women and minorities in political roles (which America is now doing)
    changing attitudes and morals with regards to sex, divorce, marriage (which America is now doing)
    a better lifestyle for the average person (which America now has)
    giving more time off for FAMILIES and vacations and holidays for the average worker (which America now has.....and I really don't know why the average conservative wants people to work 7 days a week, 16 hours a day, for peanuts......I mean...you tout family values and then you force people to work so much that they can never actually see their families....)
    lessesning our draconian/facist laws against pot smokers (which is slowly beginning to happen)

    America, in many ways, is a very liberal country and this liberalism has worked quite well

    How about we let the French decide how to live in their country, and we'll decide how we live in ours? Just an idea. Of course, they don't have our Constitution... and their 'liberals' once executed everyone who disagreed with them. Sometimes I get the impression from the left wing that they would quite like to do that here.

    Kinda sounds like liberalism means a lot of forced rules and laws.

    Yes.. take away my freedom to think for myself and force me to think your way or else..
