West Virginia? Self Sufficient? West Virginia is not in debt because the rest of us are paying for your existence in one way or another, thanks in large part to Sheets. My wife is proud to hail from West Virginia and she'll be the first one to tell you that. I've worked in WV dozens of times, everywhere from Wheeling to Blue Field to the coal field in the SW part of the state. There is very little of WV that I haven't seen. The most common sight I saw standing in line at a grocery store in any part of the state was the three people in front of me in line all using food stamps. It's plain as day what is going on in WV. Maybe you need to get out more.....

Where would you suggest I go? I don’t think your “part time observing WV” qualifies you to tell us, who have lived here our entire lives, how things are. Why are you attacking WV instead of the democrats? Reminds me of a certain Arizona lawsuit.
I am a magna cum laude college graduate who has visited NYC, LA, Mexico, Florida every winter, and I live in W.Va. because it is the best place, in my opinion, to live.
Take your condescension to DU.
