We were dirt poor before Arizona passed that stupid law that sent them all flocking here. We are now slightly less poor, but still pretty bad. We are also pretty much the exact opposite of a retirement mecca, so it doesn't really fit your description...
    The reason I included NM as a retirement destination is that I considered a job in Albuquerque building homes in a retirement community. There must be some type of retirement draw. I would agree with the education though, it definitely changes the viability of a state to become more educated. I also don't disagree with education playing a role in federal disbursements to some red states but I am sure there has to be a lot more than that.

    Well, every state has retirement communities. But you used the word Mecca, which brings to mind places like Florida and Arizona. New Mexico is definitely not on par with destinations like that. In fact, due to our frigid winters in the cities, I know quite a few older couples here who go to Arizona for the winter. Also, with being the only state in the country where whites are outnumbered my minorities, most older people tend to avoid it here...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    I was working with Pulte at the time and they offered me a transfer to work in a Del Webb community in Albuquerque. They don't put them anywhere they can't sell hundreds of fairly expensive houses to retirees. I didn't do a ton of research but made the assumption that NM had a fairly large retirement community.

    An Arizona woman, in despair at the re-election of Democratic President Barack Obama, ran down her husband with the family car in suburban Phoenix on Saturday because he failed to vote in the election, police said on Monday.
    Holly Solomon, 28, was arrested after running over husband Daniel Solomon following a wild chase that left him pinned underneath the vehicle.

    Daniel Solomon, 36, was in critical condition at a local hospital, but is expected to survive, Gilbert police spokesman Sergeant Jesse Sanger said.

    Got one more:
    On November 7, an elementary school teacher in south central Louisiana allegedly told her class of fourth graders that she was “attending America’s funeral” because Barack Obama won the presidential election, according to a report by KATC, the local ABC television affiliate.

    Students say the teacher, clad in all black that day, also said the United States will turn into a “new China” under Obama, KATC reports.

    “She made the comment that since Michelle Obama is first lady and with the meal plan she has, the kids are gonna look like toothpicks in a few months,” parent Lindsey Shello told KATC.
    Shello’s nine-year-old son is a student in the teacher’s class. She was outraged about the episode, and that the teacher had vented her feelings on Facebook.

    The teacher, who is never named in the KATC report, reportedly requested a personal meeting with Shello. The teacher also cautioned Shello that her son might be embellishing the story.

    However, other kids are apparently telling the same story. Another parent, Chassatey Jackson, says her children have related the same basic account, KATC reports.

    Its clear to me where the fault lies in this: Captain Planet.

    Some of the nation's CEOs took their frustration out on their employees. Robert Murray, CEO of the coal company Murray Energy, responded to the election by reading a prayer to his employees and then laying off 50 of them. Papa John's pizza CEO John Schnatter, a donor to Republican loser Mitt Romney, announced that franchise owners will likely have to cut hours for employees in order to pay for the president's health care law. And Zane Tankel, a New York-based Applebee's franchisee, said he would halt plans to expand his 40-restaurant empire because the health care law would cost him too much.
    Over the weekend, Reuters reported on an emerging job description for a number of financial advisers throughout the country: talking their wealthiest clients off the ledge in the wake of Obama's win. John Burke, a New Jersey-based financial strategist, described some of the small business owners he works with as "inconsolable." Houston-based adviser Scott Tiras said a client wanted to turn his assets into gold before the election and bury it in multiple places on his ranch. Tiras managed to talk him out of it, but after the election the client was evidently "too upset to talk about it."
    A Florida man (pictured above) said he started to display the American flag upside down the day after the election because he believes "this country is in distress." Meanwhile, a man in Texas did the same. Both are veterans, but people in their towns have responded to the gestures with anger. The presentation is never permitted under U.S. Flag Code "except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property."
    A post-election screed from attorney Larry Klayman was deep in the fringe, even by conservative website WorldNetDaily's standards. Under the blaring headline "GOD HAS A BIGGER PLAN!," Klayman searched for divine interpretation of a second Obama term. A Romney victory, he wrote, would have deceptively led the Republican Party to the conclusion that "a Moses had appeared to deliver us out of the Egyptian-like bondage we find ourselves in - thanks to our 'Mullah in Chief' and his growing voter hoards of socialists, communists, anti-Semites, anti-Christians, atheists, radical gays and lesbians, feminists, illegal immigrants, Muslims, anti-Anglo whites and others who last Tuesday cemented his destructive hold on the White House and our country."

    Last one is my favorite.

    That first one makes me sad. I love Papa John's pizza. Best pizza joint around, IMHO...
