    The news broke the other day that California has 5th largest economy IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. At the end of 2017, the GDP for the state was 2.746 trillion dollars.

    That means it has a slightly larger GDP than the U.K., which had a GDP of 2.624 trillion dollars.

    All by itself, California's economy is 14% of the nation's total economic production. If you look at the GDP per capita by state, you'll notice that the vast majority of the states in the lower half of the chart are all "red' states, with Mississippi holding down the very last place.

    California's state motto, by the way, is "Eureka". (In case you are wondering, there IS a city named Eureka in California.)

    Arizona in one of 5 states that give homage to the invisible Man in the sky.

    Lot of implications toward unity and even one "United We Stand, Divided We Fall".

    But in reality no "United We Stand".

    No wonder Trump is pissed. If I was CA, I would secede from the rest of this loosing bunch of States. But yeah, luckily they vote mostly Democrat, because they've got more brains than Mississippi.

    Absolutely; as I've written in the past about "education" in this country, it has no priority here; just read all the stories about teachers "salaries" and qualifications; especially in the "poor" States like Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi etc. Also I get the impression that at schools here they don't educate on "facts" of live" and analyses"" of human behavior as well money management.

    Also the "cost" of education is an burden which "poor" parents can't afford. People in this country are easily manipulated, because they have "little self confidence" and are already treated by the churches as "robots" then they will dance to everything which gives them "promises" and "believe" everything what suits them in their situation. Furthermore the old "slave" problem still lingers, because such thing goes from parent to child.

    As an example Trump's Dad was an KKK member; that rubs off. Also he flunked school and escaped serving in the army. That way you get "dumb" people like Trump who gets manipulated by Putin as well the Saudi Prince and others.

    Why hasn't the Democratic Party cultivated a support from the people begging for help. There may be "dumb" people but what do you call a party that ignored their traditional constituency. Case of dumb and dumber.
