The West Virginia teachers remain on strike. About time that someone in the Empty States takes a stand. From the beginning of these endeavors, it's been asserted that there's a reason they have been "left behind", and it hasn't been a conspiracy among the elite Eastern intellectuals and nattering nabobs of negativism. It has been the Right Wingnuts elected by the residents of the Empty States who treat said residents as indentured servants. And those folks accept the situation blindly.

It should come as no surprise that West Virginia ranks at the bottom, topping only a few other Empty Red States. Keep 'em stupid and breeding. Works OK, for the Marie Antoinette Class when your economy is largely agrarian/extractive. Not so much in the 21st century. Also not surprising that Orange Julius Caesar promised these morons that he'd send the country back to the 19th century. And they bought it. Stupid is as stupid does.

It's not a coincidence that the prosperous coastal Blue States are closer to socialist than social Darwinist. The West Virginia teachers are figuring it out.

I’ve never been to West Virginia and i doubt that unless inadvertantly and fatally i drop in from some aerial transport misfortune, i’ll never be there.  In which case i ever were there, charred from rapidly expired fossil fuels or atmosheric re-entry roasting, at least from what i read into of late thanks to your post and a couple njUS senators’ representation$,  i’d be coming to rest mixed in among the six percent or so foreign (ie, non-“White” folks) bodies like just another brown chocolate chip sparsely populating a white chocolate gerrymandered piece of the electorate.
