Update: Found the video:

  1. Hmm, Putin on the dangers of socialism. Kind of sounds strange that someone who seems to be trying to consolidate power into a dictatorship would be concerned about socialism…I hope he really has learned that lesson, but I suspect he may just be out to criticize the US.

  2. Looks like Kansas was given a marginal rating and was #14 overall. Iowa got a #34 with a dangerous rating which surprised me given your proximity to the bible belt.. Missouri was 16th and Nebraska was 8th.

  3. I thought it was interesting. Reading the whole speech I'm not sure exactly what his motives were. I think he likes government control, but realizes it doesn't work so well with the economy. Who knows what that man is thinking though.

  4. This is one of my concerns if Roe is overturned and abortion goes back to the states.. some states might be worse than others.. hard to say.. just surprised to see a midwestern state labeled as “dangerous”.. interesting that Alaska is rated worse (37th) and also rated dangerous.. maybe Palin can eventually make a difference up there?

  5. I would hope that Palin can make a difference. Governor's have to deal with Legislatures though and what I've seen in the GOP in Alaska it seems to be more moderate and libertine (which I agree with fiscally, not on issues like abortion though).

    She hasn't been the most popular person with party leadership there. After three years they finally added her to their directory. Crazy. Not happy that she called some people on the carpet. From what I've been reading I have to say that Alaska politics really sucks and some of the legislators (in both parties) can act rather juvenile.
