Where $100 Actually Is Worth $100 or More

Well it is definitely not in the state of New York. NY ranks as third from the bottom of a list of all states (and DC) when it comes to how much bang per buck you get for $100. In NY, $100 is valued at only $86.43 of worth. The only two 'states' worse than NY were the state of Hawaii and the District of Columbia, DC being the worst of all. On the other side of the coin, if you live in states like Mississippi (ranked number one) or Arkansas (ranked 2nd) you are more well off with your hundred bucks than elsewhere. More here.

Just as with the number of guns per capita, as discussed in my blog post here, NY's poor standing disappoints me once again but comes as no surprise.

Does Race Baiting Have No Limits

A black man has claimed that the federal government, of which he is an employee, has allowed for racism on the job because it allowed a person to wear a hat with the Gadsden Flag on it to work and he (the black man) was offended by that. That the EEOC is even considering whether or not wearing that hat is a form of racism is almost beyond belief even under the Obama administration. More here.

My words of advice to the complainant go fuck yourself asshole get a life; that flag is not a symbol of racism but of the unity and strength of the American people and of our readiness and willingness to defend ourselves.

All the best,

Number Of Guns Per Capita By State

Have you ever wondered how many guns, per capita, are in your state? I never gave it a thought before but found this link on NY Firearms forums: http://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/most-heavily-armed-states-in-america/?ftag=ACQb72972c&vndid=5333141 

It was a bit of a surprise that New York, my home state, came in dead last with the least number of guns per person. I was surprised only because I thought that CA, NJ or DC (no not a state but included in the list) would come in last. I actually was shocked for a moment when I found out where Washington DC fell on the list and you may be surprised too. Hold down your mouse key and scroll over the blank space between the dashes to see its rating or go to the link and see it there.) Yes, DC, is the 'state' with - the second highest - amount of registered firearms per capita. That shocked me at first but after giving it just a little bit of thought I figure it is likely because of all the judges, federal agencies and police departments that have guns there versus its small population.

Before closing I must add that I posted this for amusement more than to spread any knowledge about gun ownership and I say that because the list is badly flawed as it completely leaves out handguns. All else I can say about it is that, without knowing it before, I have been and will continue to do my part to try to raise NY up from dead last on the list.

All the best,
