Notice Anything Strange About This Graphic?

The Bluer The State, The More Dead Soldiers

No wonder the Red States support this war and this moron in the White House: they have very little skin in the game, relatively speaking.

Why? Probably because most of the soldiers who have been to Iraq enlisted in the Guard or Reserves for the college tuition stipend, because in blue states, you can really see the value of a good education. Few manufacturing jobs, fewer agricultural jobs, means more white collar jobs and that means more college degrees.
