    I think the comment was about your stupid map and the points it is trying to make.

    As for your "light blue"......are those counties 100% republican ?

    You don't even know what it is you're posting here...do you, Derp? You cut and paste a map of the US that shows a county in South Dakota with the worst life expectancy in the nation and then rant about the deep south? Why post THAT map and couple it with THAT post? It's idiotic and so are you for doing it! After watching you in action over several years now...I've come to the conclusion that you don't read most of the articles you cite...PAST THE HEADLINE!

    Your inability to make a connection between party and life expectancy is funny, thanks for the OP.

    There is no connection between party and life expectancy.

    The GOP base won.

    "Slashing" funding......is almost beyond funny.

    It's like spending 1000 a month on a phone and cutting it to 300 and calling that slashing.....

    If a 70% cut in spending for your telephone is not slashing, what do you call it?

    I was gonna say its a bunch of those dumbass dems that depend on the government to provide for their livelyhood and believe in their medical care they have wanted to force everyone else into. Thrirty-five prescriptions for one sick dude a devout dem and union supporter his whole life. i could go on and on about some of them I am aware of around here...good riddance is all I can say and hopefully there next trip will get better for them, maybe....

    I call it not spending a stupidly high amount of money for a telephone.

    Using the term slashing would indicated some kind of heartless cut to spending.

    That isn't the case.
