Yay! My home state is tops!
In per capita drunk driving fatalities and large truck fatalities, per capita,
In per capita casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan (17 as of 1 Oct 08), according to the American Legion. This source, from May of this year, says Wyo is #4. This may go up more, as Wyo just sent another military guard unit to the Middle East,
In DHS spending, per capita. Wyo just purchased a state-wide common communication system to allow state agencies to all communicate together on one system,
In per capita suicide rates,
In hazardous liquid pipeline accidents, per capita,
In carbon footprint, as Wyo "spews more carbon dioxide [per capita] than any other state or any other country". We are also the #1 coal and gasoline consumers, per capita, and #1 in expenditures on fossil fuel R&D, per capita,
In lack of population. Wyo is the least populated state in the union.
In per capita gun ownership,
In percentage of population that owns firearms--59.7%,
And in judicial sobriety, as the Supreme Court ruled for a father to have primary custody over his children after a maternal kidnapping and generalized buffoonery by mom. Seems that you don't have to act as bad or worse than Britney to have your children given to the father in this state. HT: Weasel.
I love this state! No people, lotsa guns, and a good nose-thumbing at Algore's convenient climate-change falsehoods. So as long as I don't go off myself, drive a large truck, or work on a pipeline, I should be golden.
