If you are going to ask for help in advancing yourself or leave “smart” comments learn to type so people may take you more seriously. If you were to find the information you seek and send a resume, your lack of command over capitalization alone will ruin your chances. I’m not saying this to be mean, you never know who is reading your writings online and what oppurtunities you are letting fly by. Just read your comments over a little before pressing send.

i never planned coming across this blog but viewing your comment on the young man, tony, i’m poised to say you are stupid for making such comments about a fellow human being. what makes you better than a monkey; is it your higher reasoning. i would rather say you are the monkey because only monkeys make such commentaries about people. fool, live to learn or die with your foolishness.mudafucker.

I came to this site to learn more about the financial status of the states because im trying to figure out were to live when I “get mine”. I grew up in America, western Mass, but I am Jamaica. i just want to say that comment about Africans, ganians being monkeys or whatever, made me think of how ignorant people can be, that is stuff you should be saying on Youtube man. Western Mass has some of the best schools for example, Harvard, Mit, Bu, Umass, Amherst. Balieve it or not i live in a rural town mostly whites! but you know what the town also has a ganian community and they act better than the african Americans. Look at the statistics, smarty with the monkey comment, mosttwenty five year olds in mass at least have a bachelors degree..look at it monkey man. Wait one second most of the Ganians her at least have a masters and speak three or four languages.. stop the ignorance stop the hate, peace, love and respect humans stop acting like ur shit smell good.

Why isn’t Connecticut #1? Connecticut is gorgeous and is home of the lovely Gold Coast and if Connecticut wasn’t first I would think that Pennsylvania would be first because they are home of the lovely Maine Line. How could Maryland be #1? Maryland isn’t even that nice! I guess Annapolis is nice, but still! How could New Jersey be over Connecticut! It doesn’t make sense, but If they were doing this by class Connecticut would be #1! And my question is where the hell is New York. I would think because of Manhattan it would be at least #4 or something and how did Minnesota and stupid Alaska get on here? California should also be above Virginia and Hawaii!
