    Hmm, how about those right-wing nannies in our state that say WE are the only ones with “proper thing” for all other countries? But as Michael indicates, the real divide in Ukraine is about the divide between two CHRISTIAN populations that “don’t get along”. Hmm, conflict going back too 1654.

    It pleases me that you like something. Especially something I like too.

    How wrong you are. Red states have seen growth that seems spectacular in terms of percentage of growth & share of state GDP, but they are still far behind the traditional manufacturing centers like Ohio, Michigan & Indiana in real numbers.

    Keep in mind that things like refining oil, making oil products, making food & tobacco products (light ’em up, N.C.!) count as manufacturing jobs here. Most durable goods are still made in northern states.

    The top states for manufacturing jobs:

    California
    Texas
    Ohio
    Illinois
    Pennsylvania
    New York
    Michigan
    Wisconsin
    Indiana
    North Carolina

    Top states by manufacturing revenue:

    Texas
    California
    Ohio
    Illinois
    Pennsylvania
    Indiana
    North Carolina
    Michigan
    Louisiana
    New York

    Haha!
    I also like smaller government!
    But back to the things that matter……..
    A good, homemade pierogi is hard to find but when you do, it’s awesome.
    A little Ukranian Orthodox church by us growing up would make a huge batch of pierogis 1 Sunday a month to raise money for their needy.
    Our parents would take us down there and we would stuff ourselves full of those potato, pasta and onion pockets.
    Those Ukranians were good people that helped the needy and brought our town together.

    Not for me. 4 great places within a 15 minute walk. It’s good to live among immigrants.

    ^^^You must have different immigrants…..
    Mine now are the south of the border type, but they do make the best homemade tamales.
    Same as pirogies, the tamale has to be a real homemade one.
    Also like pirogies, not something you can just whip up in 5 minutes either.
