    Careful with this one.
    Keep in mind population density when you look at these county by county.
    Its misleading. I was looking at this earlier today and just comparing metro Atlanta with rural counties in south Georgia. The rural counties appear to be bigger suckers of government tit but if you know the populations of those counties you will know that more low income families live in metro Atlanta than any single rural county.There are however many wealthy or well to do folks in the metro area that skew the numbers. The source is the NYT so take it for what it is. An attempt to paint the rural “red staters” as hypocrits who have nothing to complain about. Not saying there are no FSA in rural counties but lets get real here. Thanks for posting this Pete I was going to email the link to you.

  2. Misleading indeed. Parts of Oregon are high due to resource restrictions aka they are the “timber counties” who get welfare from the fed because they can’t farm any of the trees there.

    While watching a History Channel special about Genl Sherman’s infamous March to the Sea, a bit of info was revealed about a tactic Sherman used that seemed familiar & as I’m afflicted w/ Columbo Syndrome (a.k.a. OCD) I did a lil’ research & the result was enlightening as well as disturbing. The Bible tells us that there’s nothing new under the sun & the old song proclaims that everything old is new again, & the thing I found, when added to Santayana’s warning, seems to validate those observations. Here’s the info.:

    Is it just me, or does the recently published NDRP EO from Emperor Obama bear more than a passing resemblance to the abovementioned historical items?
