My latest one should work. I tried changing the line break but should have left it alone. I love these personalized videos. This one has great production values for what is essentially a Mad-Lib.

Barney - Did you catch the news yesterday that the Monitor is giving up its print edition and going solely web-based?

I had an interesting discussion last night with a woman who didn't quite get that taxation is "spreading the wealth".

And when I pointed out that the state she comes from (Missouri) was a beneficiary of that spreading of the wealth, while the state she now resides in (California) was a leading donor, she simply got angry and said I was distorting the truth.

California receives 78 cents for every tax dollar we pay back in governmental spending (jobs, military, projects).

Missouri receives $1.32 for every tax dollar they pay back in federal spending.

Alaska receives $1.78.

I agree. Lower taxes, and less spending is the way to go. No more "spreading the wealth". Damned Red State Freeloaders.

Absolutely! Damn welfare city.

(BTW, It's Columbia, not Colombia. Not that the drugs are any different, but the one uses while the other supplies.)

I just find it amusing that the top 10 "recipient" states are all Red states. (Well, Virginia's about to go blue, so the top 9.) Ironically, the same thing happens in California. The very Red Voting northern counties are also tremendous recipients of monies from the very Blue Los Angeles and San Francisco. (Exceptions of San Diego and the OC being "donor" counties noted and acknowledged.)

32 states -- ovwhelmingly Red-oriented voting districts -- are recipients of "wealth redistribution", while 18 states -- heavily Blue-oriented -- make the donations.

They condemn wealth redistribution, while taking daily advantage of it.

with rhode island breaking even,that leaves the distrist of columbine(better?)and the rest of the nation to be supported by 17 remaining states.

i'll probably not bother with the math ,but it doesn't appear to add up.

Nuh-uh. You're having 'pronoun trouble'.

It's "Most of you-all."


See? Makes much more sense.
