Urban = dependency on others
Rural = Self-dependency
Urban = loss of individuality; group think
Rural = maintain individuality; individualism
Another conclusion: 62 million want him....55 million don't want him..period.
Any idiot knows the populous in those red areas are no comparision to the blue areas.
Per capita fellows, learn the term.
Coastal/Urban= Educated, Competative, Survival of the fittest, Open Minded, Free Thinkers, Progressors, Innovaters, Intergrators
Rural= GED, Confedrate flags, Backwoods Stills, squeal like a pig banjo players, Chicken in the bread pin, pickin' out dough, fried chicken w/ biscuits and gravy and everybody does the Watermelon Crawl...
In all seriousness, Am I sterotyping ? Of course I am, but to those who cling to sterotypical beliefs, maybe you ought to come out to the Coast and take a dive into the Ocean and remember where we all came from.......Or, rediscover rural nature, climb the highest mountain and get closer to the heavans.
Ultimate Conclusion: we are all one and the same....Red Blooded Human Beings. Why continue to pull us apart?
So what term to we apply to the person who points out something that everyone already understood.
I don't call them names like "idiot" but I do snicker at them.
As I often say, people are often the funniest when they don't mean to be!
No pull...it is what it is.
As for me personally, "Cause I'm a hater!" ROTFLMAO
Is that why the Mississippi delta voted for Obama?
Those darn voting ballots were so confusing.
Why can't they just put up pictures of the candidates instead of all those fancy printed words ?
Well I dont live in the delta but there were free meals a-flowing at the churches where voting was taking place. I never heard of vote-n-eat.
I know you get juice and a cookie at blood drives, but never saw it at voting places.
Oh well we just need to get over it. It will all be Ok.
Just bury your head in the sand.
"Why continue to pull us apart?"
I said the same thing to the Democrats the last two times that we won.
Guess what? They NEVER stopped trying to pull us apart.
Hmmm does anybody actually live in the areas where the red is??? or is the red where all the vacant prairie and farm land is located? and desert i'll add, maybe there's bodies of water inside the red too, oh and I can't forget the mountains also
I guess the south is all red and vacant after all the major hurricanes that the Bush administration ignored and no one got helped
I guess the red is where 48% of the American people who do not want Obama as President must live.
you don't think anyone lives in the red areas of the country?
Here is another example using more than two colors. The darker the color the more votes were cast for that side. Kind of shows how close the election really was.
That map reminds me of that space photo of the country at night where you can see all the lights from outer space, The blue area is where all the light is visible and the red is where you can't see.....I'm a geography nut, Yes I know there's people in that area, i'm just having fun

CIVICS 101 3rd GRADE
From a teacher in the Nashville area
We are worried about "the cow" when it is all about the "Ice Cream"
The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year. The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president.
We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.
To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members. We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have. We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.
The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids. I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support. I had never seen Olivia's mother.
The day arrived when they were to make their speeches Jamie went first.
He had specific ideas
about how to make our class a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best. Every one applauded. He sat down and Olivia came to the podium.
Her speech was concise. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream." She sat down.
The class went wild. " Yes! Yes! We want ice cream.
She surely would say more. She did not have to. A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure. Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it. She didn't know. The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream.
Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a land slide.
Every time Barack Obama opens his mouth he offers ice cream, fifty percent of the people react like nine year olds. They want ice cream. The other fifty percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess.
Talk about timing, I read this http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article21239.htm about 10 minutes before I read your post above and IMO it ties in very nicely to the point made.
"America the Illiterate". wkmac, this story and BAU's, nicely explains the recent election results.
