Hmmm. Colorado was number 3. It has the lowest obesity rate and the best economy of the states.

So. NW. Maybe education is important?

For those who love to bash California, here's wallet hubs ranking of the worst education systems in the country. Spoiler alert--California is far from the worst.

Big woop when you consider how far down the current bar is set for this entire country.
There is nothing to brag about here.
I'd even go so far to say that higher education is even worse, cranking out students that now major in political activism.
That's how "changing America" as Schumer has said recently, gets started.


I'm curious, what's your level of education? Do you know anyone who works as an educator? When is the last time you were in a classroom?

Some pesky facts that won’t penetrate NW’s tin foil hat:

https://nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/display.asp?id=372#PK12_enrollment

3.7 million students will graduate from high school. Some of them goofed off, like NW did.

4 million college students will graduate this year: https://educationdata.org/number-of-college-graduates

Some of them also goofed off, like NW. Because NW doesn’t understand statistics, he accepts anecdotal nonsense from his conservative web sites as proof that students now major in political activism.

Much can and should be done to improve education in this country. Expecting NW to have any idea what that would be is like waiting up for the tooth fairy—on Christmas Eve. As one important metric, the US graduates about 70,000 engineers eaxh year, while China graduates 600,000 and India 350,000.

Of course that is not the complete story, those countries have much larger populations, and are engaged in far more spending for civil engineering projects. The top universities in the US are still the envy of the world. But then there is Trump U, and Oral Roberts....

Theft is a terrible thing, even in a world accustomed to Trump’s crimes. Before you get too cocky—you might have not noticed that the larceny rate in North Carolina is higher than in California. https://www.statista.com/statistics/232583/larceny-theft-rate-in-the-us-by-state/

Shocking, just shocking, NC and Calif are ranked 23rd and 25th in the country for larceny rate.

So you don't have an issue with the billion dollar loss because of the Calif. prisoner fraud? No wonder the Republicans don't want the coronavirus relief funds going to states with deep financial issues.

I agree that NC has a problem with hog waste, but there are no easy solutions. Some are trying the plastic tarp over the waste ponds to collect methane for energy production, but apparently there are problems with that solution too with the release of nitrogen.

If you don't like the smell, don't live by a pig farm. Just like - if you don't want your house to burn, don't live in a California forest / chaparral.

I said nothing of the sort. I'm not sure what the root cause is--and I know a hell of a lot more about California governance than you do. Of course I also understand that you started this thread to troll, not to find solutions. Finding solutions is difficult.

The root cause of pig shit in North Carolina is weak State water quality regulation, aided and abetted for the last four years by Trump appointees. Antagonism to reasonable regulation has its costs--smelling pig shit and contaminated drinking water to name just two.
