Interesting--but wouldn't it be cool to have this in county-by-county form, too!

Liberals are charitable with everyone else's money.

To be fair, liberals believe they are doing God's compassionate work by supporting the social redistibution of other peoples' money through the tax code.

They will say this just proves we are too ignorant to keep our own money and their Socialist Agenda is what all American's "really" want.

Thanks. I swiped/copied the source, but mine didn't keep all the column values.

A "you were right ping"... ;-)

Anybody know where I can find a list of the average IQs shown in a similar color coded, county-by-county manner? It would be curious to see whether more red counties have a higher IQ than blue counties. I know the state-by-state comparison showed the blue states averaged higher IQs than the red ones but I suspect a county-by-county comparison will show a different story.

I don't think the data are available.

A review I found from Michelle Malkin's blog is

IQ Hoax by Steve Sailer: a lot of analysis, including

IQ and the Wealth of Nations -- Lynn and Vanhanen -- data table of national mean IQ studies summarized by Steve Sailer

(misuse of the Lynn and Vanhanen book seems to be the source of the moonbats' claim that the blue States have higher IQs)

Never mind. I followed the link from Michelle Malkin's site and saw the IQ scores that have been making the rounds are a hoax. Unfortunately, there's a lib at work that has posted the IQ scores outside his office door and I was hoping to post a rebuttal using the county-by-county score sheet. I doubt anyone walking by will read a printout of the IQ Hoax page so I'll probably have to settle for the Generosity Index. I suppose I could add something that says, "Obviously, a high IQ isn't always an indication of intelligence, common sense or good morals."

I would like to see the murder rate by counties and how they voted.

How do Teresa Heinz Kerry's personal charitable contributions stack up against, say, Utah's 5.14 percent of adjusted gross income?

I would love to see this chart stacked up against church attendance. N.H. is one of the least church-going states in the country. I bet the difference in charity is accounted for by differences in how much people spend on church contributions, missionary work, new buildings, etc.
