^^ Seriously ... but meanwhile that same governor that doesn't bother with that flagship university (leaving it up for the legislature to take care of) is making gay wedding cakes one of his 3 top priorities. Put that as an asterisk next to the #49.

Right? These blind supporters will say anything to disregard the blatant hell hole he's put our state in.

I just have to ask. What does a gay wedding cake taste like?

You're lucky that Mississippi is around otherwise you would have ranked last of all states. Although it would be a pretty close call to Ohio and Michigan. Don't forget about the crime either, New Orleans crime rates are only matched by Detroit.

Is this what you do for fun? Isn't prostitution legal over there? See if your mom will lend you $20.

I love how conservatives love the state and libs like to point their fingers on how Louisiana is at the bottom of certain rankings. If all of the libs would leave the state and we would see a sharp rise in every ranking across the board, and would be #1 in many rankings.

Been There Done That, makes very good points and he references the data to address the points, unfortunate as it is, that information seems to fall of def ears.

I'd say, its difficult to get points across to (some) people when they are over-come by Confabulation!!!!

Quote:
In psychology, confabulation is a memory disturbance, defined as the production of fabricated, distorted or misinterpreted memories about oneself or the world, without the conscious intention to deceive. Confabulation is distinguished from lying as there is no intent to deceive and the person is unaware the information is false.


Therefore, Been There Done That, don't be dismayed that some people just don't get it.
