    It’s apparent that the list includes only 1 or 2 jurisdictions that are not typically electing liberal leaders; i.e. Oklahoma and perhaps Louisiana. I’m unsure of the political nature of Louisiana, but assume the greater Nawlins’ area is run by liberals. It is well known that the judiciary follows the political leanings of the leaders in a jurisdiction.

      Polar, Louisiana is still using a lot of Napoleonic law and it is very different there. People have their attorney’s card in their wallet for any little thing.

        I am with a National Insurer….We do not write any coverage in Louisiana due to enormous corruption and French Law that is not reliable or predicable in court.

          If you want to increase spending, well go ahead, no one is stopping you. Get together with your liberal buddies and pony up.

          Why is it liberals won’t spend anything to help anyone unless they can force everyone else to spend more first?

            Why is it conservatives are fine giving their rich masters all the wealth in the world? We left kings, and your party has done everything in it’s power to create new ones. You’ve already lost the class war.

            “But then the (democrat) agenda has never been about supporting poor uneducated Americans, just keeping Americans poor and uneducated. After all, if they learn (that they can support themselves) they might fight back against their (democrat) masters.”

            How much aid has been given to people living in cities run by democrats for the last 100 years? How many families have lived in the ghettos of the US for generations scraping by on welfare?

            You are lying to yourself if you think republicans and democrats have different goals. The only thing that is different is the road they take.

            Only Jon could take the voluntary exchange of money for goods and services and turn it into “giving your rich masters all the wealth in the world”.

      Spending more on education doesn’t increase knowledge, Jon. In fact, true knowledge is free. Not to mention that education and intelligence rarely go hand in hand.

      Just like in every other area, conservatives are less prone to wasting money versus spend-and-tax democrats.

    Not sure why y’all are including Georgia as a liberal bastion. Have you seen the latest governor?

        My apologies to Georgians re: considering them to be ‘leaning liberal’. I should have written ‘a few’ because there are a few ‘purple’ states/ jurisdictions in the list of 10.

        Are you also implying Stacey Abrams DIDN’T win in 2018 and become Governor?! ;)

    I find myself turned off by the “hellhole” moniker, even if that’s what these places be. If you’re going to claim the moral high ground, you have to put your position in terms of some moral gravitas and “hellhole” doesn’t do it justice. “Hellhole” seems juvenile to me. The commercialization of the law is no teenage joke. No, it’s ruining our republic. The damage done to the law here is malignant. Why does everything have to be dumbed down to the level of of a ranting child? They’ve “trademarked” hellhole and so they’re not likely to give it up, but they should not have lowered themselves to the level or their adversaries.

      OK, what about ‘Hadeshole’? Hyperbole is needed to attract and retain the attention of people mesmerized by their cellphone screens. We who underwrite liability lines understand why we avoid or diminish our portfolios of risks in these jurisdictions.
