Interesting, and oh-so-true. It'd be even more accurate if it were a county by county map instead of state by state.
That really hit the nail on the head! Corporation A vs. Corporation
B. Too funny, except that it is likely true.
PS. I don't drink Starbucks or shop at WalMart, so the model works even for a corner-case like me.
Uh, I've been to parts of 'Starbucks nation' that are sooo Walmart.
And likewise, I would argue the Walmart Nation is more accepting of Starbucks proliferation than the Blue States.
Hey, the Canadians are willing to help out:
I'm living in one now, and I've lived in three others.
And I echo Roel's point, too.
This map shows the importance of conquering the wild liberals on either coast, converting the pagan lawless to Christianity, and spreading the good news of morality among the secular on our borders!
West Oklahoma begins at Vallejo.
Ja wohl mein fuehrer
Hmmm. you guys are right, it does sound better in German, even Babelfish German:
Dieses Diagramm zeigt den Wert des Eroberns der wilden Liberalen auf jeder Küste, des Umwandelns des Heiden, der in Christentum gesetzlos ist, und des Verbreitens der guten Nachrichten des Sittlichkeitsgefühls unter dem weltlichen auf unseren Rändern!
One of these peoples are paying $4.00 for a cup of coffee, and the other is saving money on all their shopping needs.
I wonder who is the smarter group? (jk)
By the way, it doesn't look very divided to me if you go by counties:
The group which has benefited from their schooling enough to have sufficient disposable income to be able to afford $4 (plus a tip) on coffee.
Or the group that has benefited from their schooling enough to know that $4.00 (plus a tip) is a ridiculous amount to pay for coffee.
or the group that doesn't drink no stinkin coffee... just beer!
If the voters in "The United States Of Wal Mart" are so patriotic, why do we buy so many goods made by Chinese political prisoners that the very left-leaning International Longshore Workers Union has its members working 3 shifts to unload the containers?
What's your point here? That we are less divided then it appears or that the vast swaths of red mean Busgh received a mandate? Cause if it is the latter then you are truly stupid.
It is not about political prisioners. We are helping poor Chinese peasants make a living. If you visit China, you'd appreciate how thankful they are for their jobs. Are you not in favor of helping the poorest of the poor by providing them jobs?
Pennsylvania is right up there.
Take a look down at your feet: if those aren't New Balance you're wearing, you might want to stand back because the pot is calling you, kettle.
I hear the "We're giving them jobs" rationale all the point and I can see the point, but it's important to point out it's not always that simple.
It's not inconceivable for a multinational firm to go into a community that had sustained itself on an agricultural economy, or an industrial economy with smaller, but diverse, employers, and become the single largest employer overnight. That gives them leverage to lower wages and take a more relaxed view of labor conditions.
When Nike's labor practice controversy was at its peak in the late 90s, they actually did find that Nike was outsourcing to factories that were underpaying employees even by Southeast Asian standards.
i.e. anything south of I-80 (Chicago people know what I'm talking about).
You're flattering the hell out of Rockford here.
You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Dr. Wankler again.
