Sensible Mom At It Again

With lots more facts and figures:

.... Here is a detailed analysis I did of the red and blue states. I have been looking at this data since Lawrence O'Donnell called the red states welfare states. For the worksheet I analyzed many different variables, including a sampling of agricultural data, act scores (idea from Powerline), net marital rates (percent married less percent divorced), welfare rates, unemployment rates, crime rates, federal funds per population, corporate net income taxes (gross less refunds), net individual income taxes (less corporate income taxes to offset big city benefits). My theory being if the liberals dislike corporate America then they shouldn't be allowed to benefit from it in this comparison. Each state was ranked by category, and then a total rank for each state across all categories was calculated (last column). The worksheet is sorted from best to worst based on the overall ranking....
