Obama sure brought the country together didn’t he? So much for red and blue states, they are all black and blue now.

Democrats took control of Congress January 2007 and Obama took control of the executive branch January 2009. That pretty much sums it up.

Very interesting representation.

By January, 2010, the lowest rates of unemployed were essentially confined to the lowest population counties in the country -- the High Plains belt from West Texas to North Dakota and Montana.

And these counties are both low population and low unemployment because just about every household remaining there is on the land and largely self-supporting.

An object lesson...

I've seen charts that depict the downward spiral beginning when the 'rat socialists took control of Congress on Jan,2007. On this map, note how quickly the nation becomes darker from Jan, 2009.

I fear darker times are ahead.

The question still remains.......How much more can our country take before it totally falls apart and a dictatorship takes effect? Companies can only layoff so many employees before it goes out of business. Where’s that tipping point for the country?

Seriously, it pretty well highlights the country. It also highlights that I am going to move to central US.

Overlay a map that shows U.S. population demographics in the U.S. to the one linked in the article and I think you will see some correlation.

That tracks the Democrat Party carnage since they took control of Congress. That’s not a coincidence. Good stuff, Geron. Thanks for the ping.

What is interesting is that the last county in a state to go black is often the county containing the state’s capitol. In other words, government is sheltered from the worst aspects of an economic downturn, with the private sector serving as ablative protection for the government sector.

I think the self supporting types on the farms owe a bit to FARM SUBSIDIES. Lets see the map minus farm subsidies and see how it looks.

THey are going to need more colors. The colors stop at ten percent. To keep the graphic up to date and relevant, they will need at least two more colors.

Note that the only area not changeing is the sparsely populated Great Plains. There were few jobs there to begin with.

The High Plains are not hospitable to corporate farming or subsidies harvest. Save your disdain for where it is due.

There is another aspect ot your observations, those who are self employed never show up on the unemployment rolls.

Even if they are ‘out of work’.

I saw that, too. I figure that the unemployment rate is zero because the population must be zero, too.

Not far off! Amidon, the county seat, has a population of 26. All of Slope County has 767 people.

Have no fear, Barry and the congress will deliver.

Any stories regarding a turn around are bogus, and criminal.

That's a 2007 map, before the prospect of a socialist government cause our economy to collapse.

I doubt that "our" current "progressive" government will ever allow an update of this map (without major manipulation).
