The Stupid States of America

If you had to guess which US state had the highest teen pregnancy rate, which one would you guess it was?

Probably one of the Blue, liberal, no family value states, right? It would have to be, those Blue States have no morals, the teens just go out, get meth, and do it all night long. It would probably have to be a state like Taxachusetts, or Connectisucks.

Well, you would be wrong. The winner is...M-i-s-s-i-p-p-i. Good Ol' Mississip'. In the Deep South - a state where W. could still probably get 65 percent of the vote. Bible country.

And those goony liberal states, you ask? They have the LOWEST teen birth rates. Hippie parents and all.

It does not stop there - the states in purple on the map below are the ones with the highest child poverty rates in the US.

Besides New Mexico and New York, what do all of those states have in common? Let me give you a hint: John McCain won those states with 54, 55, 59, 59, 57, 61, 52, 57, 58, and 56 percent of the vote.

I'm just getting started. Look at the average IQ by state - here the darker shades correlate with higher IQ's. Notice a pattern?

So basically we a situation where the dumbest states in the country have the highest poverty levels and teen birth rates. Yet those same areas continue to espouse their moral superiority and vote en masse for a political party that panders to the wealthy.

I'm done feeling bad for you, idiot states.
