Welfare States

New Mexico , Mississippi, Alaska, Louisiana , West Virginia, North Dakota, Alabama, South Dakota, Kentucky, Virginia, Montana, Hawaii, Maine, Arkansas, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Missouri, Maryland, Tennessee, and Idaho – these twenty states all receive from 20 to 100% more in Federal money than they pay in Federal taxes.

When their members of Congress complain about people not paying their way, or the deficits being too high, these states are the slackers. The blue states are paying for these lazy, shiftless lay-a-beds.

And meantime, us folks in the productive “liberal” states are paying for these assholes to say we’re not “real” Americans because we don’t worship at the altar of stupidity and bleat like sheep upon demand. Gah! The hypocrisy and stupidity! And problem is, they’re so stupid that they don’t even recognize the hypocrisy…

Hey, somebody’s gotta do it; Texas sure-as-hell doesn’t.

Welfare serves an essential purpose: the word for it rhymes with “Philadelphia” (depending on one’s accent), and almost nothing else does.

I love factoids like this.

Actually, the scary part is that Florida and Texas balance. Imagine what kind of trouble both would be in if they didn’t have the Federal facilities, like military bases and NASA facilities.

All these people running around yelling about fiscal responsibility should be forced to live on their real incomes, and not the Federally enhanced versions.
