I’m not sure the results of this survey come as any big surprise to any American with a brain and clear vision (corrected or not). (h/t – Drudge Report)
Happy Days Are Here Again – NY Post
A surprising 94 percent of Americans say they are satisfied with their lives – although far fewer in New York and other Eastern states think they’re better off than they were five years ago, according to a new survey.
The Harris Poll of more than 1,000 people reported the overall “satisfaction” level, defined as people who said they were either very or somewhat satisfied with their lot, was up 4 percentage points, from 90 percent two years ago.
But only 42 percent of people in the Eastern U.S. said things had improved since 2002. By contrast, 60 percent of Southerners and 62 percent of Westerners said their lives had improved.
How can Easterners think their lives are improving? After all, their taxes are always going up… their roads are clogged… they are the main targets for al-Qaeda… and their Democrat politicians tell them there’s nothing they can do about it because everything is George W. Bush’s fault. If we would just let the United Nations run everything…. it would all be great.
Oh those Blue Staters….. always “Glass Half Empty” kinda folk, ain’t they? Yes, John Edwards there ARE “Two Americas” — one optimistic and happy, the other grumpy and conspiratorial.
I’m glad to be in Carolina, baby!
