LINK Study Shows Widening Gap in Death Rates Between Democratic, Republican U.S. States

I don't write them, I just pass them along and bask in the afterglow.

Studies show they're dying off.

Not surprised

This LBJ quote came to mind.
The context of one of the most famous statements on race ever attributed to President Johnson, an off-the-cuff observation he made to a young staffer, Bill Moyers, after encountering a display of blatant racism during a political visit to the South. Moyers tells it in the first person:
We were in Tennessee. During the motorcade, he spotted some ugly racial epithets scrawled on signs. Late that night in the hotel, when the local dignitaries had finished the last bottles of bourbon and branch water and departed, he started talking about the racist signs. β€œI’ll tell you what’s at the bottom of it,” he said. β€œIf you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”

In the blunt vernacular that he loved to use, LBJ was describing what the television pundits of today would probably call the politics of resentment and divisiveness. It is still very much with us.


It's Darwinian.


Not at all surprising; dirt-poor Republican death cultists don't live long. Not when sensible eating habits and exercise are liberal/commie plots.


So, people who don’t believe in affordable health care are dying off faster?

Color me shocked.


As the saying goes: Reality has a liberal bias.

Reminds me of the Sapolsky baboon story:

I wonder why I am totally unsurprised by this finding.
