GLORIOUS NEWS MY DEMOKROOK FRIENDS! (http://www.cnbc.com/id/48214569)

After decades of figuratively demolishing this once wealthiest city on Earth, our beloved party reveals that the true goal ... demolishing this once monstrous bastion of capitalism ... has been revealed.

Only once this former province of profiteering has been leveled will the world be free of the threat of American corporate and military might spreading across the planet.

Future generations living in a worker's paradise of thugocracy will rest assured that the EEEVILLL Americans will never again force upon them the twin terrors of liberty and prosperity!

Swing your wrecking balls with pride komrades ... final victory is within sight!

BEHOLD ... THE INEVITABLE RESULT OF HOPENCHANGE! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayors_of_Detroit)

Obviously NYC has probably always been the wealthiest city in this country, once we were in business a while. (Maybe Philly for a time, or Boston, but NYC predominantly.) Likely the City of London held the record on Earth until NYC took over as the capitol of capital, perhaps briefly supplanted by Tokyo before their twin bubbles of real estate and the Nikkei Dow burst.

The initiator of these moves is Gov. Rick Snyder (R-MI).

Sorry ... Detroit once had the highest average income of any major cityin the world.

That being said, your ame efforts of deflection do not deter from the massive destruction wrought by demokrooks on Detroit ... and Baltimore ... and Washington DC ... and NYC ... and LA ... and many more once proud US cities.

That didn't make it the wealthiest city in the world, ever. Income is related to, but is not equivalent to, wealth. (See Bill Gates, never among the highest annual earners, although atop the list of wealthiest Americans for some decades.)

A high median income was achieved by UAW union scale wages averaging up the median, and supporting the income of the rest of the city by their purchasing power from their union wages. Hardly something you'd want to point to, or admit.

So far as I've heard, the major locations of low income and poverty are in the red states, where GOP officials have been in charge since the Southern Strategy commenced under Nixon, following LBJ and his obtaining of the Civil Rights Act passage.

Again, something you ignore, and cannot admit, lest your framing dissolve into the dross it really is.

How lame was that.

Detroit, pre demokrook rule, was an economic powerhouse ... which has been in freefall under demokrook leadership.

OTOH the south 50 years was in utter economic devastation following generational dmokrook rule ... and as they have shed the shackles of moonbattery they have risen like the Phoenix.

Next ridiculous claim you would like to see bludgeoned with the heavy leather of reality?

If what you say is so, why are all the bottom states by median income red states?

Yes, maybe we should count Louisiana as a blue state by history, although arguably not.

But except LA, the bottom 15 of 50 states are red states and have been for a while. (FL for example, with 4 GOP governors in a row, one or more of them with two terms, and a GOP legislature.)

When was it that they rose, Phoenix-like, again?

In your mind, I mean?

I guess you mean this:

So how many decades is this going to take, in your opinion?

Your first flaw is believing that none of your bottom states are demokrook states.

But to answer your question, review what states have the lowest ... as well as the highest ... UE rates.

As a family of four may have two full time wage earners and still be at or below the poverty level (if both work at minimum wage), it's not clear that UE tracks well with wealth or poverty.

Median income may be a better measure (it's the measure I've linked to), although to be sure, differences in the cost of living may skew that a bit as well.

Here's the list of the lowest UE rate states, as of last month (with the change from the prior monthly period):

Delaware 6.8 steady 0.0%
Maryland 6.8 increase 0.1%
Wisconsin 6.8 increase 0.1%
New Mexico 6.7 decrease 0.2%
Hawaii 6.3 steady 0.0%
Montana 6.3 increase 0.2%
Kansas 6.1 steady 0.0%
Massachusetts 6.0 decrease 0.3%
Utah 6.0 steady 0.0%
Minnesota 5.6 steady 0.0%
Virginia 5.6 steady 0.0%
Wyoming 5.2 decrease 0.1%
Iowa 5.1 steady 0.0%
New Hampshire 5.0 steady 0.0%
Oklahoma 4.8 decrease 0.2%
Vermont 4.6 steady 0.0%
South Dakota 4.3 steady 0.0%
Nebraska 3.9 steady 0.0%
North Dakota 3.0 steady 0.0%

Here. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_unemployment_rate)

As for what I said before, note Louisiana appears on both lists.

North Dakota - 3% ... no demokrooks in the gubner's seat for 19 yrs 7 mths.P

Nebraska - 3.9% ... no demokrooks in the gubner's seat for 13 yrs 7 mths.

LWW

And why did you leave out long term demokrook run states suffering both high UE and falling incomes?

There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

So Republican governors found that oil? Interesting claim.

Nebraska, like Iowa, farm states doing far better than the country as a whole.
