Find out which 10 states are running out of smart people based on job and education statistics.
(Excerpt) Read more at wlky.com ...
California should top the list and they should make an exception for D.C. to be included on the list at number two...
I seriously don’t know where to begin on this one. I’ll just take your word for it!
Many of the states on the list have had huge increases in illegals, such as Arizona, Iowa, Texas, Utah and Colorado.
All I saw was a link to a video.
It’s more like a slide show than a video. You can scroll through the photos underneath the large photo to see the states and other info, and skip the slide show.
Not one of the leftwing states is mentioned except Michigan.
ALL OF THE SUCCESSFUL STATES ARE MENTIONED, Texas was high on the list.
New York, California and so on were notably missing and they have some rock-stupid people if they stay in those socialist hellholes.
I did not say the article made sense to me, just that it was interesting that there was not more listed.
Though not a state, it appears DC ran out a long time ago.
As a Texas resident, I’d have to disagree. It’s not that we are running out of smart people, it’s that we are gaining stupid people at an alarming rate and they are beginning to outnumber the smart.
That’s because they already think we are stupid.
You know, just a good ole boy,
Never meaning any harm!
My Yankees relatives thought the Dukes of Hazzard was a documentary...
And.....which ones are they??
Should there not also be a corresponding article to the effect that, “Some States Gaining Smart People!!”
And.....which ones are they??
States that don’t vote for OBOZO
This actually shows just the opposite... states with people dumb enough to bury themselves in student loans for degrees in "communications."
It the same thing bashing Texas for low high school graduation rates among the adult population, by counting legal and illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America who never got beyond elementary or middle school.
“There’s a list?”
If there’s one thing I -HATE-, it’s badly-written web pages like this that force you to navigate through page after page (or pic after pic) to see “the list”.
So here it is:
But I don’t see any info there that would lead one to believe that the states in question are “running out” of smart people.
Rather, as another poster mentioned above, it probably has more to do with the influx of south-of-the-border illegals (who, as a group, have a lower IQ and education than do the Euro-Americans already residing in those states) who are skewing the numbers.
Another web page that is all smoke and no fire....
“New York, California and so on were notably missing and they have some rock-stupid people if they stay in those socialist hellholes.”
Laz old buddy, you made it out because you had nothing to lose by leaving. Some of us have too much to lose if we go. So we are here, still trying to fight the good fight. Some of us have no other choice.
And you know full well that not all of NY is like NY City.
It doesn’t make us “rock stupid” for staying.
Unfortunately, there are not nearly enough states in that catagory....not nearly enough.
Sad, but true.
Wasn't putting down Texas...just thinking more like the deep South.
There have been some pretty serious arguments over the years whether Texas is a Southern state or a southwestern state, including my Texas relatives.
Some of them self identify as part of one or the other...I can go either way, though I think of it as more southwestern than South, mostly because of the accents and/or meal/food choices.
Its not that Mississippi is running out of smart people, its just that it doesn’t take much for one to qualify as a smart person here.
Texas is a Texan state.
Well shoot, don't enlighten them...the more they and folks like them believe that, the less likely they are to move here.
No argument from me, though I thought y’all considered yourself a Republic more than a state.
its that we are gaining stupid people at an alarming rate...”
Read a report on the greater Houston area several months ago which showed a marked decline in years of education per adult and income per family. Based on huge influx of illegals one might conclude that these stats are unfortunately probably true.
Thank you for saving me from another click-whore site.
It’s pretty obvious from the list what the agenda of the writer was.
The sad part is that in the Baraqqi Depression, the opportunities for ALL people are so greatly diminished.
We get told over and over again that immigrants are coming here to "do the jobs Americans won't do."
Who's to say that people from other states won't move west to do whatever jobs go unfilled in these states.
That's basically what happens in the US and what's been happening for a century. So it's more an opportunity than a problem.
Texas is both Southern and South Western.
It was the greatest state in the Confederacy, just as it is the greatest state in the United States.
So Colorado made the list, huh?
The fact we’re being overrun by illegal aliens wouldn’t have anything to do with our numbers, would it?
Nah, didn’t think so...Couldn’t be...
