Schools closed in Minnesota because of liberals

Poor Minnesotans.

That’s the fifth fact I now know about the state (the first four were: it has a big German community; it’s a home of Prairie Home Companion; according to the latter’s description of life, it’s similar to Russian Far East and somewhat Siberia; and that’s where TRS is from).

I love my state.

No really, even if there are a bunch of morons there. No worse than Boston.

Crawling Axe said...

That’s not saying much. But yeah, I have nothing against any state.

Well, except California.

And Alabama.

I bet I love my state more than you love your state.

You guys inspired me to post another video.

Minnesota can also lay claim to the second to best average credit rating in the nation: http://www.creditreport.com/info/credit-scores/average-credit-scores.asp

Check it the top ten averages. Turns out the hics and the icemen are the most responsible borrowers and spenders:

South Dakota 710
Minnesota 707
North Dakota 706
Vermont 706
Massachusetts 703
New Hampshire 703
Montana 701
Iowa 700
Wisconsin 699
Maine 699

And bringing up the rear:

Texas 651
Nevada 655
Arizona 659
New Mexico 663
Louisiana 663
South Carolina 665
Oklahoma 666
North Carolina 667
Arkansas 668
Mississippi 668

So the sand states buy the homes, and the icemen foot the bill.

Hey axe, wanna secede with me?

But Minnesotans are awfully nice folks (though I don't think they hold a candle to Wisconsinites). Do they really deserve the ding dongs that currently run the state?

Same could be said for Wisconsin. But Milwaukee county, among the most liberal in the country, somehow has one piece of conservative legislation in place that the reddest of the red can only dream of: school vouchers. Very curious.

Shmulie, I think you may need to be my new best friend.

I hope my dual identities didn't throw you off...

Crawling Axe said...

Well, they say: “Let’s have two Americas”. I have a better proposal: “Let’s have 50 Americas. In fact, we already have them. Let’s now stop obligating some of Americas from picking up other Americas’ bill.”

LE7 said...

Wait... do I know you?

shmulie said...

I'm the one who recognized the paneling in your celloing video.

shmulie said...

Is this sock puppetry? Do I have to go in front of the bloggers tribunal?

LE7 said...

Well, there isn't one yet, but I'll keep you posted.

Ahhh. Nope. I mean I know of his chasidus one, but he seems to be another man of dual identities, it's just pinning down the other identities that I haven't done yet.
