Does the mid-west really contribute anything anymore? Back in the day the mid-west was a strong part of the US economy due to its small farmers. But with todays large corporate farmers and the increase in agriculture in Caliu they aren't nearly as important as they once used to be.

Sure they still grow corn and maybe soybeans, but for the most part they don't do much anymore. Even California has surpassed WI in milk and cheese production...and with a better tasting cheese!

Most of these mid-west cities are small, flat, and lowly populated. Wy has less people in the whole state then my county does!! Plus there is often high unemployment in many of these former factory small towns which cost all of us tax payers. That's why the smart people often move to the bigger cities on the coasts...where the jobs are.

I am not sure what we should do about this fly-over country. Pretty much just empty space.

Oh well...at least they vote Bush.

We are well armed and sparsely populated; we know the terrain, come get some!

midwest states are small?

Sorry, you're thinking of the northeast. You know, the area of this country where you change states like you change counties in the rest of the US.

Yawn. Transparent troll attempt.

However, you'll be glad to have the midwest when all the large cities in the Rocky Mountain West and Cali suck up the last of the water used to make the Cali agriculture possible goes bye-bye and it reverts to unusable desert.

When at least we can say we live in a "Free State" and can go and buy new AR's and 30 rounders that most Kalifonistans only dream about

I used to enjoy your posts. Unfortunately, however, you appear to have shifted from a "we" to a "they".

I'm going to go work on my AR now - you know, those things that we are allowed to freely buy/build/whatever.

Everybody here in the great midwest pretty much agrees on one thing. All of you in commiefornia can stay where you are. We sure dont need your politics screwing up our great states as it has in commiefornia.

I live in Wyoming. We like the population just fine thank you.

Oh, and we aren't that small either.

I grew up in Iowa.

What's wrong w/the midwest? I don't remember it being known for having druggie bums on every corner like we have here in Seattle. What is with that anyway? I have only been here since May, but the number of young/able-bodied homeless here is staggering. On the other hand, there are some mighty fine restaurants here I love Utah but the GOOD restaurants are few and far between....
