Calling all liberals
Here's the Ohio Red-Blue map by county.
I'm still waiting on a lib to check in to tell me exactly what makes life in Youngstown (a hard core democratic area) so much more wonderful than say life in Piqua (Redville).
How about what makes life in Cleveland so much more wonderful than life in my home town of Lancaster.
Or what about Toledo v. Dublin?
Columbus v. Newark?
Many years ago, I dated a tremendously liberal woman and we talked about where our kids would go to school. At the time, we were both living in Cincinnati Public Schools. My proposal, Catholic schools. Her proposal? Move to the suburbs because she "supports public schools". Huh?
As I stated at the time, "that's so wonderfully liberal". Liberals create and run the crappy school systems they'd never send their kids to so they haul ass out to the suburbs where the sensible republicans take care of business.
In many respects, democrats are like teenagers, they are always quick to point out the responsible parents shortfalls all while they live rent free under said parent's roof. What a great deal.
Now I know that Eric from Plunderbong checks into this site because he comments on snarky little crap. Well tell me Eric, what is it that makes living in these blue areas so damn wonderful?
Is it the crime? the unemployment? the schools?
But hey, don't take my word for it, just look at the flight of people out of these blue areas into the red areas. Moses could only have dreamed to be as efficient. If the pharaohs had been democrats even the non slaves would have hauled ass out of Egypt much like they have Cleveland, Akron, Toledo, Dayton, Cincinnati, Youngstown, etc.
So Eric, do you have the balls to take me up on this one?
