The numbers come from the bureau of labor statistics and the details can be read by clicking the link, so I don't get people saying...where did you get that information.

No more retarded than people who assert that Texas' growth has to do with conservative policies over the natural resource boom there. The state has pretty horrible stats on levels of poverty, etc. I'm not sure I'd hold them up as the beacon.
The stats on the poverty level in TX is directly related to this BS chart that the OP posted. It's basically saying that because the population of TX increased at a higher rate than the rate in which jobs increased that TX came in dead last. Common sense tells you that TX has seen a large increase in population due to illegal immigration which is also directly responsible for the high poverty levels in TX. Counties that have seen the highest levels of illegal immigration are also the counties that see the highest levels of poverty.

Aren't worth replying to.
I'll just take it that you're not intelligent enough to form your own opinions. Perhaps you should learn to grow up and get your own opinions instead of posting those of others. Generally, it's the tea bagger types that do it, but I guess that's evening out.

How is it that I can tell that your 335xi is an automatic.

Ok let me try this again...

Do you understand what the following statement actually means?

"Net change in jobs minus net change in labor force"

Say jobs increase by 100 and the population of the labor force increases 200, that leaves -100 in jobs.

Ok, now what were the criteria used in this chart to determine how much the labor force increased and what do they consider a member of the labor force?

CA is horrible, the labor force has been fleeing CA for years which causes it to look BETTER on this chart. When many of those CA labor force members show up in TX and we don't have a job waiting for them this chart says that TX looks worse.

This is ******* spin at it's finest, these people know their liberal idiot followers will eat this type of chart up even thought they don't understand it.
