  • That’s fitting for Maine.

    As for weed versus cigarette smoke, color me shocked. I like the smell of weed, and hate the smell of cigarettes. To each their own, I guess.

        Yeah that makes zero sense. I'm also not buying TN in a world which includes LA and RI.

        IA surprised me at first but I guess it makes sense. FL and AZ have retirees but they also have a ton of young families. I assume in IA you leave the day you get your BA never to return.

          Like I said - probably a lot click-baiting in their "methodology". Except for WI.

          • Suicide is pretty on point for Alaska, it's a huge problem, especially in the villages.

            Granted, you have a lot of choices for Alaska. Sexual assault, teacher pay, and terrible state government immediately come to mind.

              Only places with young adults in Iowa are the Des Moines metro, Counciltucky (Omaha metro), Cedar Rapids, and the 3 university towns. The average age in the other 92 counties in the state is like 65. And something like 75 out of the 99 counties are shrinking in population.

                    Quad Cities may not be as old as rural Iowa, but it definitely isn't young. Only thing there is John Deere and the PGA event sponsored by John Deere, and the HQ is on the Illinois side of the river. And I think the Davenport plant is only the third-biggest in the state, behind Waterloo (many of whom live in Cedar Falls, home of UNI) and Ankeny (Des Moines suburb).

                        I figure the nuke plant, Deere, 3M, and the other big company I can never remember make it relatively young with the assload of engineers they have. I just remember feeling like it's a small Minneapolis.

                            • This is what these snowflakes couldn't handle. My word.

                              When day comes we ask ourselves,
                              where can we find light in this never-ending shade?
                              The loss we carry,
                              a sea we must wade.
                              We've braved the belly of the beast,
                              We've learned that quiet isn't always peace,
                              and the norms and notions
                              of what just is
                              isn't always just-ice.
                              And yet the dawn is ours
                              before we knew it.
                              Somehow we do it.
                              Somehow we've weathered and witnessed
                              a nation that isn't broken,
                              but simply unfinished.
                              We the successors of a country and a time
                              where a skinny Black girl
                              descended from slaves and raised by a single mother
                              can dream of becoming president
                              only to find herself reciting for one.
                              And yes we are far from polished.
                              Far from pristine.
                              But that doesn't mean we are
                              striving to form a union that is perfect.
                              We are striving to forge a union with purpose,
                              to compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and
                              conditions of man.
                              And so we lift our gazes not to what stands between us,
                              but what stands before us.
                              We close the divide because we know, to put our future first,
                              we must first put our differences aside.
                              We lay down our arms
                              so we can reach out our arms
                              to one another.
                              We seek harm to none and harmony for all.
                              Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true,
                              that even as we grieved, we grew,
                              that even as we hurt, we hoped,
                              that even as we tired, we tried,
                              that we'll forever be tied together, victorious.
                              Not because we will never again know defeat,
                              but because we will never again sow division.
                              Scripture tells us to envision
                              that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree
                              and no one shall make them afraid.
                              If we're to live up to our own time,
                              then victory won't lie in the blade.
                              But in all the bridges we've made,
                              that is the promise to glade,
                              the hill we climb.
                              If only we dare.
                              It's because being American is more than a pride we inherit,
                              it's the past we step into
                              and how we repair it.
                              We've seen a force that would shatter our nation
                              rather than share it.
                              Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy.
                              And this effort very nearly succeeded.
                              But while democracy can be periodically delayed,
                              it can never be permanently defeated.
                              In this truth,
                              in this faith we trust.
                              For while we have our eyes on the future,
                              history has its eyes on us.
                              This is the era of just redemption
                              we feared at its inception.
                              We did not feel prepared to be the heirs
                              of such a terrifying hour
                              but within it we found the power
                              to author a new chapter.
                              To offer hope and laughter to ourselves.
                              So while once we asked,
                              how could we possibly prevail over catastrophe?
                              Now we assert,
                              How could catastrophe possibly prevail over us?
                              We will not march back to what was,
                              but move to what shall be.
                              A country that is bruised but whole,
                              benevolent but bold,
                              fierce and free.
                              We will not be turned around
                              or interrupted by intimidation,
                              because we know our inaction and inertia
                              will be the inheritance of the next generation.
                              Our blunders become their burdens.
                              But one thing is certain,
                              If we merge mercy with might,
                              and might with right,
                              then love becomes our legacy,
                              and change our children's birthright.
                              So let us leave behind a country
                              better than the one we were left with.
                              Every breath from my bronze-pounded chest,
                              we will raise this wounded world into a wondrous one.
                              We will rise from the gold-limbed hills of the west.
                              We will rise from the windswept northeast,
                              where our forefathers first realized revolution.
                              We will rise from the lake-rimmed cities of the midwestern states.
                              We will rise from the sunbaked south.
                              We will rebuild, reconcile and recover.
                              And every known nook of our nation and
                              every corner called our country,
                              our people diverse and beautiful will emerge,
                              battered and beautiful.
                              When day comes we step out of the shade,
                              aflame and unafraid,
                              the new dawn blooms as we free it.
                              For there is always light,
                              if only we're brave enough to see it.
                              If only we're brave enough to be it.

                              • This is what they cannot abide:

                                Scripture tells us to envision
                                that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree
                                and no one shall make them afraid.
                                If we're to live up to our own time,
                                then victory won't lie in the blade.
                                But in all the bridges we've made
                                That obliterates every pretense of a rightwinger to be a Christian and exposes them as pagan barbarians. This girl understands the message of Scripture. No conservative every will, because they are hateful cowards.
