As you know, our running tally of states we do not wish to live in is woefully South-heavy. We’ve had a couple strong Northern contenders but the South keeps rising and rising AGAIN! Today, though, we’ve got one of the original 13 colonies entering our list for a couple good reasons. First, there is no freaking job growth whatsoever and we are already being paid mere pittances by yr Editrix. Next, the governor is edging into severe Rick Scott levels of douche about the poors and the drugs. He doesn’t just demand that the strapping young bucks with t-bone steaks get tested for drugs. No, he kicks it up a notch and points out that the reason there are no jobs in his state is because everybody is lazy AND high:
uring an appearance on a local radio show this week, [Pennsylvania Governor] Corbett sought to explain away Pennsylvania’s less than stellar performance, arguing that the state gained 111,000 private sector jobs since he took office and is “doing better than other states.” But then he grew defensive and complained that “a lot” of businesses are still having trouble filling their ranks because too many Pennsylvanians use illegal drugs:
CORBETT: The other area is, there are many employers that say we’re looking for people but we can’t find anybody that has passed a drug test, a lot of them. And that’s a concern for me because we’re having a serious problem with that.
Not content to merely emulate Florida’s very own Governor Voldemort, Mr. King of Pennsylvania also wants to make sure he slides on in to Sarah Palin levels of stupid in either woefully misunderstanding or disingenuously misstating (or both, really. Why choose?) just how shitty he is at making the jobs happen.
