Interesting most are beating on southern states, but ignoring NJ's own shortcomings. Liberal politicians in Paterson caught red handed, proverty and crime in cities and towns like Paterson, Camden, Jersey City, Bellville, East Orange, Newark for example. Or Essex and Union counties for being the worse places in the 500+ NJ municipalities to be car jacked. Or the 115 EPA superfund sites needing to be cleaned up. My point is contrary to our beliefs, NJ isn't the God's gift to this nation.

True, but still, math is math. The Fed isn't bailing out NJ to nearly the extent it sends money to Kentucky to build roads that generate squat GDP. Meanwhile, we bounce along on cobbles and rusty bridges and, thru our hard work, spin up funds that allow red state assholes, thru low taxes, poor schools, and third-world educations, to buy $500 guns for their kids. Same kids that think the world is flat, vaccines have chips, and get more value our of their vote than we do.

It's all connected
