In a previous thread, I recommended "alternet.org" be banned from ATS as a source...just leftest propaganda.


Aw - does it burn your tongue? Hurt your ears? Make you break out in hives?

If you ban alternet, then you must ALSO ban TheBlaze AND Fox News.

Deal? Or No Deal?

Where do I indicate any hate?

Your herky-jerky over-reactions are stunning as well.



Facts are Facts.

And I bet those Democrat voting areas have a lot of high crime pockets too.



The best and the brightest.

Right. High crime pockets - in Republican states.
Low education
Low income
Low prosperity

along with
High church-going populace
High poverty
High crime


................All REPUBLICAN states.

Again - is that all you got?

In spite of the prevailing stereotypes and assumptions about who uses SNAP Food Stamp benefits the most in the United States, the highest usage is not in Compton, Queens, nor the South Side of Chicago. Instead, a city that is 99.22% white and 95% Republican comes in the lead.




Owsley County, Kentucky is a community of about 5,000, residents earning the lowest median household income in the country outside of Puerto Rico, according to the U.S. Census.




Strangely enough, the residents of Owsley County are almost entirely Republican, in spite of the traditional opposition to the Food Stamp program by the GOP. In fact, just last November, residents of Owsley saw their SNAP benefits reduced drastically as a result of Republican opposition to funding the program.

Well spank me cross eyed! Looks like we got ourselves some poor Democrat voting pockets WITHIN the poor republican voting pockets! Ain't that right Xuenchen?

No, there's more.

Look at the election map referred to you in my post.

Look at the Mississippi Poverty map page and click some other States to see the Democrat magic in reality.

Stunning isn't it

Most condensed in the Democrat voting areas too !!

Having trouble with reality again I notice.

good points made (op). yet ultimately all political parties are much of a muchness. with just enough apparent differences for supporters to embrace and detractors to decry. to keep the ball rolling, so to speak.

a continuity that maintains the status quo desired by the 'masters of the universe' ( who are not politicians )

oh, yes. It really is stunning. I can scarcely comprehend, let alone 'believe', that those people in those poverty-stricken counties of Mississippi would actually vote for Democrats.
I'm chastened

/sarcasm

*ahem* So many counties in Mississippi that are in poverty - and that's......

wait - whose fault?


County government? Erm, no.

City council?
Mayor?

No, again.

People who need wages to pay their bills?
I think not.

Again you only make my point even clearer, Every state has cities and urban areas
but that doesn't explain why states like Illinois and Minnesota support the red states.

Red states are the "Takers"

You should be screaming to protect my liberty..
Why is the federal gov. Redistributing my Midwest income to Mississippi Alabama Louisiana

Refer to the wallet hub link in my first post. Every way they measure Mississippi sucks

Shouldn't this thread be titled "How to become a Republican in Four Steps"? Republicans aren't real conservatives. Many of the values that they are trying to "conserve" like "in god we trust" aren't old values but new ones.

What states rely the most on Uncle Sam? Take more than they pay in taxes.

Wallet Hub

1. Mississippi
2. New Mexico
3. Alabama
4. Louisiana
5. Maine
6. Montana
7. Tennessee
8. West Va
9. S. Dakota
10. Arizona
11. Kentucky
12. S. Carolina
13. Florida

Almost the same list for: percentage of citizens on food stamps
Highest poverty rates, worst schools

Everyone is quick to defend a billionaires freedom from marginal tax increases
while the blue states subsidize the red states


Care to give a link to these? It would seem you have skewed the figures to make some point, when all you have done is skewed the numbers and not even in a relevant manner.

CA accounts for almost 1/5th of ALL welfare in the US and ALMOST more than all the states you listed, combined. So while they might pay more than they get back, it is because they have more welfare recipients than any other state. Oh, and per capita that is ridiculous.

You must be ONLY looking at Federally mandated assistance programs. Try looking at the state ones if you want to compare red to blue as you are doing.....that will show you how these states are spending, and in terms of welfare....California, NY, Ohio, Illinois, Texas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Washington, Massachusetts and Florida round out the top ten....and they are mostly blue.

The Federal government decides where the rest goes, has nothing to do with red/blue.

Anywho....here is the link to my data....

You're pointing to some poor cities in Mississippi to show how Dem. policies are flawed
I'm pointing to all 50 states, examples from both sides,

red states are the takers

How to become a liberal.

Hate yourself, deny nature, ignore the realities of life, deny that evil exists, and disregard the negative consequences that arise from good intentions.

In other words, no different then being frustrated that a pig can't fly.

Who is forcing you to pay for Mississippi's poverty problems?



The Federal programs have been around for decades and still poverty and crime continues an upward spiral.

Why is that?
