B’Man’s Redneck Watch: It’s Miserable Down Here

There are Richard Noggins everywhere nowadays.

You fucking rednecks are unbelievably pathetic. The South always is at the bottom in “ed-ju=macation”. Sad group of defecated matter.

I have lived in the deep south for most of my life. Raised in Alabama early on (in extremely poor conditions), moved to Mississippi at 7, lived in Louisiana at 19 and ended up in Tennessee (where I travel to Arkansas and Missouri occasionally). I travel with work and generally like to use the old roads, instead of the big highways.  What you will find is horrible conditions that those like John above must think are chosen ways of life.

But the truth is that there are not many good jobs and the people who live down here barely get by in many cases.

I saw an article entitled America’s Most Content (and Miserable) States listing the 10 “Most Content” and the 10 “Most Miserable” US states to live in. It probably wouldn’t surprise you to know that every one I listed above are in the Most Miserable list (it doesn’t surprise me in the least).

10. Louisiana
> Well-being index score: 64.9
> Life expectancy: 75.7 years (4th lowest)
> Pct. obese: 32.7% (4th highest)
> Median household income: $42,944 (8th lowest)
> Pct. with high school diploma: 83.0% (4th lowest)

Louisiana residents suffered from limited access to basic needs. Last year, nearly 9% of those surveyed in the state noted they did not have easy access to clean and safe drinking water, while nearly 12% of residents lacked easy access to medicine, both among the worst rates in the nation. Just 61.4% of respondents felt safe walking home alone at night, the lowest rate in the U.S., and significantly lower than the national rate of more than 70% who felt safe in the same circumstances. Louisiana also ranked among the lowest in healthy behaviors because of its residents’ high smoking rate and limited healthy eating. As of 2010, there were 229.4 deaths due to heart disease per 100,000 people in the state, fourth-highest nationally. That same year, life expectancy at birth in the state was just 75.7 years, one of the worst figures in the nation.

8. Missouri
> Well-being index score: 64.5
> Life expectancy: 77.5 years (11th lowest)
> Pct. obese: 29.0% (14th highest)
> Median household income: $45,321 (14th lowest)
> Pct. with high school diploma: 88.0% (23rd lowest)

The economic confidence of Missouri residents improved considerably between between 2012 and 2013. Despite this, respondents had some of the worst outlooks about their lives in 2013. Just one half of residents surveyed said they were thriving last year, among the lowest rates in the nation. With a high number of residents experiencing stress, as well as a relatively low number reporting having smiled or laughed within the last day, Missouri ranked among the worst states for emotional health.

7. Tennessee
> Well-being index score: 64.3
> Life expectancy: 76.3 years (8th lowest)
> Pct. obese: 31.3% (7th highest)
> Median household income: $42,764 (7th lowest)
> Pct. with high school diploma: 85.1% (13th lowest)

Tennessee residents were among the most likely to have a variety of physical health problems in 2013, including diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and chronic pain. People living in Tennessee were also less likely to feel safe walking at night than residents of many other states. The state’s violent crime rate of 643.6 incidents per 100,000 residents was the highest in the nation in 2012 and may justify these fears. Economic confidence in the state was among the worst last year. This was despite the fact that the state’s economy grew by 3.3% in 2012, one of the largest growth rates that year.

6. Arkansas
> Well-being index score: 64.3
> Life expectancy: 76.0 years (tied-6th lowest)
> Pct. obese: 32.3% (5th highest)
> Median household income: $40,112 (2nd lowest)
> Pct. with high school diploma: 84.8% (9th lowest)

Arkansas rated as one of the most physically unhealthy states as of 2013, ranking behind just two other states. Only 71.8% of residents were able to partake in age-appropriate activities, among the lowest rates in the nation, while 36.8% of respondents reported high blood pressure, one the highest figures of any state. More than 32% of respondents were obese last year, compared to 27% nationally.. Arkansas had 222.5 heart disease-related deaths per 100,000 residents in 2010, fifth highest in the nation. Healthy behaviors in the state, as well as access to basic needs, were also rated lower than most other states. Likely contributing to the state’s low rank in many of these measures is its large poor population. Nearly 20% of all people in the state lived below the poverty line in 2012, fourth highest in the nation.

4. Alabama
> Well-being index score: 64.1
> Life expectancy: 75.4 years (tied-2nd lowest)
> Pct. obese: 28.1% (tied-20th highest)
> Median household income: $41,574 (4th lowest)
> Pct. with high school diploma: 84.0% (6th lowest)

The median household income in Alabama of just $41,574 in 2012 was fourth lowest in the nation. The relatively low income of many state residents may have made it difficult for them to access basic necessities. Relatively few Alabama residents said they had enough money to afford medicine, food, or adequate shelter. Alabama residents also had among the worst physical health in the nation. High blood pressure and diabetes in particular were much more common in Alabama than in most other states. Also, there were 236 deaths per 100,000 people due to heart disease, the second-most nationwide.

3. Mississippi
> Well-being index score: 63.7
> Life expectancy: 75.0 years (the lowest)
> Pct. obese: 35.4% (the highest)
> Median household income: $37,095 (the lowest)
> Pct. with high school diploma: 82.3% (3rd lowest)

Nowhere else in the U.S. did people feel as negative about their work environment as in Mississippi. But this was just one of the problems facing state residents. Respondents were among the most likely in the nation to lack access to basic necessities. More than a quarter of people surveyed in the state indicated they did not have money for food at some point in the previous 12 months, while nearly as many lacked money for health care. By a number of measures, the state was one of the absolute poorest in the nation. The median income in Mississippi was just $37,095 in 2012, lowest in the U.S. Also, 24.2% of people lived below the poverty line, more than in any other state. With limited access to basic needs and poor healthy behaviors, the state was among the worst in the nation in physical health assessments. Last year, no state had a higher obesity rate than Mississippi. In 2010, no state had a higher rate of death from heart disease or a lower life expectancy at birth than Mississippi.

At least none of them were rated the very worst.
Yes, John, education is not the best down here. Many people end up working without finishing school, much unlike those wonderful Jew-run places up north like where you are from. Maybe that is why you kiss their ass so intensely.

On a sidenote: I am working a new job that has me traveling extensively, which is why postings have been infrequent lately.

    Not surprisingly, the two most important consequences involve the HoloHOAX and the creation of the State of TALMUDIA….where the stool sculpture deity cult
    can be bad ass terrorists and all the families and friends of the 300 million
