So how much does your state give?

Wow.. 4 posts in 2 days, that's really good for me since I only write once or twice a week.
I just got done vacuuming and I saw this on Yahoo! and I felt compelled to write about it because you'll probably never see it again. The poor guy that wrote it has been criticized for his findings

The story is in regards to how states make charitable donations in regards to income per capita. The liberals always speak about how intolerant and ill-compassionate Republicans are. Well... I saw this and well... draw your own conclusions.

From the Article, the 10 Most Giving States are listed top to bottom:

Mississippi, Arkansas, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Utah, South Carolina and West Virginia.

All of which are red states!!! See map. Ok.

The 10 least giving states listed up from the bottom:

New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Minnesota, Colorado, Hawaii and Michigan.

All but Colorado are blue states. Refer to map link above.

The ratio of red states to blue states is nearly 2 to 1!!! Yet, nearly all but a few of the blue states are on the bottom of the list. How could this be?

Oh and by the way aren't Mississipi and Arkansas and Louisiana and Alabama for that matter in the poorer south?? You know the area that Republicans supposedly neglect. Where a significant portion of the African American population in this country lives. The most generous?? How could this be? Are liberals not the saving grace of morality like they claim to be?

It goes to show you, when you drive down the road and you see that gas-sipping Toyota Prius plastered with Impeach Bush stickers all over its bumper, you should realize that some of the liberals in this country don't have a clue what they are talking about.

Those bastards.
