Your lack of intelligence is amazing. While trying to sound erudite about global warming and other absolute idiotic ideas, you can't quite grasp why Sodak would have that much return on tax payers money. Let me spell it out for you again, and may your chagrin never end. The reservations of the various Indian nations cover almost a 5th of the state. The Native American population that is TOTALLY funded by the Fed is a huge recipient of your beloved taxes. Couple that with the SFN crowd and it's welfare system, food stamps, etc, etc, etc, and it adds up. Since we don't have any industry to mention, only agriculture, and you know how smart those 'dumb' farmers are...they never pay any income tax...they have no income.
I'm sorry so many of you liberals in Minnesooooota feel cut out of your share, but when the global warming you so looong for takes your home into the lake, you too will be able to put in a claim. Think how happy that will make you...how socialistic you will be able to profess.
Now, let's look at who is really making all that filthy lucre, and why. The stock market is an excellant example of your Democrat and Hollywood lefties getting their wallets filled by your messiah's programs of raiding tax-payers for his pathetic stimulus gifts to the unions and the rest of his cronies that are getting all they can, only to have fools like you that continue to be played by your government rant about the fat cats and wealthy not paying their fair share. Look more closely, Henry. Like no less an authority than Pogo once said,"We have found the enemy, and they are us." Is it fun traveling through life and not realizing how badly you are being used by your Democrat party? I give you this, you are a loyalist willing to fall on the sword 'til you bleed to death.
When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
Please enlighten me some with your statistical brilliance. Please Give us a breakdown of all states eliminating the costs of the bottom 20% of their all residents. Or is it only fair that only your home state that is allowed to eliminate the bottom 20% in any statistical analysis While your at it please give us the proof of your quoted : "The native American population that is TOTALLY funded by the Fed"
