    Thinking about buying a house? Or a municipal bond? Be careful where you put your capital. Don’t put it in a state at high risk of a fiscal tailspin.

    Jefferson County Schools Propose Retirement Plan Default

    (Jeffco is in Colorado - not even a supposed "death spiral" state - but maybe that's why...)

    The last time you dropped something and it fell on the floor, did you blame the "republicans"?

    What's the point of gay people living in the "maker" states if they can be fired for being gay at any time, if their relationships are not recognized by the state, etc.? Talk about fiscal hellholes for gay people.

    GQjock's point is that just because a state is run by Republicans, doesn't make it a fiscal dream. Or did you miss that?

    ....sometimes our friends miss the OBVIOUS subtleties, in a misguided and hurried effort toward political expedience with a "broad brush"....I too live in a similar state..OHIO....all GOP, but went for OBAMA, just like FLORIDA! icon_biggrin.gif

    A state run by democrats is not necessarily a picnic, either. That's what I meant.

    Really? That's what you meant when you said "The last time you dropped something and it fell on the floor, did you blame the 'republicans'?"

    Yes. If you weren't faithfully blinded by years of kneeling and worshipping democrats, you'd have seen it. icon_smile.gif

    Umm if you'd take the figurative republican dick out of your mouth you'd be able to see the problem with your point icon_wink.gif

    "The last time you dropped something and it fell on the floor, did you blame the 'republicans'?" = "A state run by democrats is not necessarily a picnic, either."

    OK. You go ahead and think that.
