Quotational Therapy: Part 111 -- Charlie Rangel.
This Man Now Controls American Economic Policy-
Democrats are already revealing a rampant outbreak of entertaining foot-in-mouth disease. Relegated to irrelevance for so long, they've gotten used to saying outrageous things without consequences. Charlie Rangel is a great example of that syndrome. He is quoted as saying:
"Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who the hell wants to live in Mississippi?"
I know that's just Charlie Rangel being Charlie Rangel, but that's precisely the view most of our new coastal overlords have, when it comes to dumb ole "red America."
What Charlie's comments immediately brought to mind, however, is the fact that New York lost two Congressional seats in the reapportionment following the 2000 Census. They are expected to lose at least one, likely two, or possibly three more Congressional seats the next time around (.pdf). Indeed, New York has the highest rate of internal outmigration in the country. In other words, New York had more net people move to other states than any other state, from 2004 to 2005 (.pdf).
Bottom line, in Charlie Rangel's wonderful New York, people are walking the walk when it comes to the question, "who the hell would want to live there?"
And it's not pretty.
Oh, these next two years are going to be interesting.
The right quote can be therapeutic, so tune in to WILLisms.com for quotational therapy on Monday and Friday.

Sometimes it seems like the Americans need to be more informed about the people thay are electing into office! Charlie Rangel (Elmer Fudd) is a Big commie socialist. I guess it is the Dems turn to screww everything up so the Republicans can turn it around again?
