    Pure fantasy and probably belongs in a non-draft or even football-related thread.

    You wish it was pure fantasy. What I said is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God.

    I feel like you quoted me but weren't able to understand what I wrote.

    It is almost quite literally true to say liberal communities subsidize conservative ones. What do you notice about the states that tend to be higher on this list?

    This is not a trick.

    Cute infographic dump.

    Let me cut through your diversion to address your (bolded) claim.

    When you state "I understand you are talking about a difference of 16 cents. Is that the degree of pettiness you have to stoop to in find worthy counterpoint? That is thin pickings..." it's readily apparent YOU HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT SCALE.

    If you really did, you would know that when scaled, multiplying $0.16 by billions of dollars produces a staggering number that can't be described as "petty," "thin pickings," or simply the "difference of 16 cents."

    Try again to save face.

    You can object all you want but the bottom line is Texas and California have found different ways to both be on the better half of the more efficient spenders of federal dollars.

    You can try to dodge it all you want. You don't know the basics of scale and thought we were arguing over $0.16.

    When compared to the other states, it's not a lot.

    Nice try.

    We're talking comparatively about Texas and California, not other states.

    Here's a math problem for you...multiply $0.16 x $1,000,000,000 (*hint...that's $1 billion) and tell us what you get.
