1. I'm sure that these states also have the highest per capita rate of sutdent loan debts.

As well as the same list for those who are in arrears in paying those student loans.

In other words they let the rest of the nation pay for their education and are now leading the pack in not paying those loans back.

3. This is how it works

People with higher educational attainment tend to earn higher salaries; they pay more taxes and they don’t qualify for government programs.
You must be from one of those low educational attainment states.


States that are the LEAST dependent on the federal taxpayer:
1) Kansas
2) Delaware
3) New Jersey*
4) Utah
5) Illinois
6) Minnesota*
7) Massachusetts*
8) Virginia*
9) Nebraska
10) Connecticut*
*States in the top ten in educational attainment.

Not that important: 3%

10. There are alot of highly educated stupid people. Take democrats who teach college.

They attack the right and scream that they don't believe in science and yet....

Science has found repeatedly, with long accepted and proven testing that is in accordance with the scientific method, that there are only two genders/sexes, male and female.

I guess that the left only believes in science sometimes.

38. The latest test of many.

This test is within .001 of the accuracy of the invasive tests of embryonic fluids, well over 99% proven accuracy.

They even have a home test available in some areas.

The results are male or female.

There are no almosts or just abouts or "other".

So do you believe in science or not? Make up your mind yes or no.

https://www.fhi.no/en/publ/2016/ikke-invasiv-prenatal-testing-nipt-for-kjonnsbestemmelse-av-foster.-metodev/

The kicker is I support gay rights,

but,

I love to catch the left being hypocrite liars and this is one of those contradictions of proven scientific fact the left pretends to believe in v stated beliefs, both cannot be true so big lies are involved one way or another.

It is fun to get someone on the left spinning their crap and then toss this logical grenade in to their BS spin.

Name calling screaming and irrational rants follow instantly.

In here they just alert on you.

39. I support LGBT rights. I'm just questioning the lefts logic and honesty. They fail this test.

It is a contradiction of the claims of the left, (that the right does not believe in science but they do), their professed beliefs, and provable scientific facts that they can not ignored if you truly believe in all science conducted per the scientific method.

The honest answer, even though it is a contradiction, is that sometimes a belief is based on acceptable social standards and not on science.

BUT when I can get a lefty spun up and to state the the right does not believe in science they will never go there.

They just explode when they realize there is no answer to their argument that is not an obvious contradiction. That is when the name calling, screaming, and irrational ranting starts. I just tell them to have fun with it and walk away.

This really does get a wound up lefty pissed off.

Notice that someone alerted on me for this thread already. Some things just are.
