Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Conservative States Lead Job Creation:

And, of course, this is no shock to any clear-thinking American:

NEW YORK, July 26 (Reuters) - North Dakota and Alaska have added the most jobs, while Nevada, California and Florida have lost the most, in the last five years, according to research released on Monday.

The study of U.S. employment trends found 40 states had fewer jobs in May 2010 than they did five years earlier, according to, a business news site that published the research of private-sector employment conducted by American City Business Journals.

In first place, North Dakota added 21,300 jobs, and Alaska followed by adding 10,100 jobs from 2005 to 2010, it said. North Dakota saw an increase of 3,200 jobs in the last year alone, it said.

North Dakota and other states that added jobs did not undergo the economic volatility of recent years as much as other states, said G. Scott Thomas, a demographer."There was no real estate boom or bubble and, as a result, they kept plodding along," Thomas said. "Now those numbers look fantastic."

Nevada ranked at the bottom of the list, having lost 113,000 jobs in the last five years, followed by California and Florida, it said.

Imagine that. States run by Liberals trending last -- with Nevada the home of Harry Reid and Fornicalia the home of Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein.

Sounds about right... Texas is doing good too, and for me, Cali never held that mystique, even when I was younger... I went out there on business, I went out there just because, I NEVER found anything that compelled me to stay...

TF: I never got the choice, I was born and raised here. The tragedy of California is this: it's pretty much gorgeous country. When I retire I'd still leave it in a heartbeat if I didn't lose my medical upon retirement. I should re-state: my medical completely stops upon retirement. But I have an ability to throw in with a large retirement group that gets some discounts. If I retired and left it'd be straight COBRA.

And that snake will BITE your ass.

Florida, being mainly "Republicans" (yet they ran the state like liberals) is an oxymoron in and of itself. The number of Mexican, Hatian, and Cuban immigrants makes it hard to do anything in this state. We have a large population of Cubans who came over here to escape from Fidel, yet they still vote for Socialist parties (Democrats). How can a state win and become truly conservative when 50% of its population is sucking the gub' mint teet? That's the dilemma we are in. Good ol' Sunshine State bullshit.
