Unemployment out for July - which state has 9 of the top 10 metropolitan areas with the highest unemployment?
I will give you a hint -
They love their pot
They love illegals
They love liberals
Can you guess - if not check out the stats the bottom ranking 362 - 372 and the highest metro area unemployment is 27.4% - another clue this unemployment is due to the environmentalist putting fish before people. http://www.bls.gov/web/metro/laummtrk.htm

California, a destitute state, still gives away college education at fire sale prices. California community college tuition is by far the lowest in the nation. Nationwide, the average community college tuition is 4.5 times higher than California CC’s. This ridiculously low tuition devalues education to students – resulting in a 30+% drop rate for class completion. Moreover, 2/3 of California CC students pay no tuition at all – filling out a simple unverified “hardship” form that exempts them from any tuition payment, or receiving grants and tax credits for their full tuition.

As Will Rogers said, "There are lies, there are damned lies and then there are statistics." Quoting a statistic as proof of a fact is normally misleading at best. Making a case requires a review of all the pertinent evidence including the various sociological and cultural evidence bearing on the point. I expect we would find that states with lower unemployment are states where a living wage is not paid to most, where schools are poor and so forth. In any case, one cannot take a single point of evidence as persuasive.

I love it when people with an axe to grind pretend that their one silly pet issue is the sole cause of everything bad in the world. No one puts fish before people, because the contest is not between the existence of fish and the existence of people. The people can move or do other things, the fish cannot. If the fish go extinct, can your lucre bring them back?
California has a Republican governor and a significant Republican contingent in the state legislature. Just because most of them aren't insane doesn't mean they're "liberals," unless that's how you really want to define the word "liberal."
Finally, take a look at this chart:
The so-called "liberal" states that you people hate so much? They're mostly donors. They get less in federal spending than they contribute, and they are sending the difference to the red states.
