Analogy doesn't work. Looks like there's some adequate volcano monitoring, a completed construction project and a fluency in Black Speech.

clambam: while Louisiana get $2.73 back. When you're sucking that ferociously at the Federal teat, I guess it's OK to turns down fourths on occasion.


Ok, I'll add geography to the growing list of stuff you know nothing about.  Look again - here let me help.  Louisiana looks like this:

Oldiron_79: StopLurkListen: El Pachuco: One is grounded in principles of lean and limited government and on traditional values; the other is built on a belief in the essential role of government and on tenets of cultural liberalism.

Uh huh.  Sure, that's a euphemistic way of phrasing, scared old xenophobes.

And

Why are you showing a 50 year old pic of a Democrat controled at the time state?


That "sentence" only barely resembles standard written English. I'm guessing you were home schooled?

Republican states have pursued economic and fiscal strategies built around lower taxes, deeper spending cuts and less regulation. They have declined to set up state health-insurance exchanges to implement President Obama's Affordable Care Act. They have clashed with labor unions.

Blue states have also been forced to cut spending, given the budgetary pressures caused by the recession. But rather than cutting more deeply, a number of them also have raised taxes to pay for education or infrastructure. They have backed the president on the main elements of his health-care law.


If this is actually true, then we should soon have enough data to judge which approach really worked best.  Prediction: The data is ignored and the right keeps both index fingers firmly planted in ears, chants lalalala.

Good. Single party government is in a lot of ways a lot better - it lets you, as the voter, actually judge the government on its merits. Gridlocked government is a farking disaster of governance, both on a practical level and on an accountability level.
