    Isn't it interesting that blue/ liberal states consistently lead in the nation's ranking of states with highest level of education and standard of living?

    Where does your state rank?
    Arizona's education ranking = 50

    (Can't post the ULR's yet - but you can easily google it)

    What's more interesting is that they are bankrupt. California, Massachussets! :eusa_whistle:

    A couple of them might be just because they're full of high-income people.

    Link?

    If this is so, then it is probably due to the lack of anything else to do.

    Absolutely a great question!!!!! $15 hr down south in a Toyota plant or $35 hr. in Michigan at the big 3.

    And instead of the dumb ass toyota employees demanding more, they helped break the Big 3 and now their standard of living will stay stagnant forever.

    It's good to have the plant in your state, but if you are not going to be able to save enough to retire, it's just another bad job.

    We want good jobs, not just jobs.

    And see, taxes aren't the end of the world.

    I heard a small business owner yesterday say taxes aren't killing him, the fact that no one is buying is killing him.

    So in the future, small business owners, shut up about taxes. I bet you wouldn't mind paying a couple grand in taxes if it meant people would start buying your crap again.
