when i think of south dakota i imagine a cold version of kansas... lots of flat.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1491697


If you want a good look at the South Dakota landscape, that movie "Dances With Wolves" has a lot of panoramic views of the beautiful rolling hills and wide open vistas there.

I saw that on a super big screen when it first came out, a giant old fashioned theater that was torn down shortly thereafter (the Mann Theater in Minneapolis).

I was proud to be a Minnesota neighbor to the beautiful landscape of South Dakota. And there are even prettier parts than what was in the movie.

Also I have seen a movie that was shot in Mongolia with many wide angle open landscape shots and thought the topography and vegetation of Mongolia was very very similar to the South Dakota landscape as seen in Dances With Wolves.

Yeah, if New York didn't come up at 50 I was going to doubt the entire findings. Some people were surprised we even need to pay $ for a permit to have a lawn sale, limit is two per season, or you get shut down by the cops. That's in most counties. You can't smoke anywhere outside just about anywhere in the state anymore. Highest taxes overall. It's hell here. Wish I could get out but I can't afford the gas or moving expenses.

Let's see, lived in #26, then took a step down in freedom by moving to #38, but took a bit of a step up in then moving to #32, where I currently reside.

#19 here - I find this map to be a little ironic. Most of the states that are typically considered "liberal", states that supposedly celebrate freedom of thought, and new ideas (sinful ideas), are some of the least free. On the other hand, states such as my own (Alabama) which are stereotyped as "backwards" and "too traditional" are considered more free. Hmmm....maybe being traditional and conservative isn't so bad. I was raised and taught to honor God and the ten commandments. I was taught that Jesus came to fullfill the law, and that we were to follow the laws of the land as long as they did not contradict His word. Jesus said that we are to be slaves to righeousness. As we lose our lives, and are crucificed with Christ, it is then, and only then that we can truly find freedom...in our soul, in our marriages, in our families, in our churches,in our finances, in our work, in our school, and every part of our lives.

Re: Most Free Least Free Freedom in the 50 States
LOL my State is like 27th I think- Absolute stupid criteria for "free states"- Lets put it this way, a few days ago I walked down to the Cannabis Shop with my strapped with my 38 because I have a CCW- Then I went to the store and bought an incandescent light bulb because my State juyst passed a law that incandescent lightbulbs will still be sold past 2012 regardless of Federal Law.

So I am legally smoking a joint and packing heat and looking at a damn REGULAR light buld (i.e. not a fucking corkscrew) and your little state list tells me I am in the bottom half of the 50 most free states?

Sure taxes are high, jobs scarce and blah, blah, blah- But this State is most free I have ever lived in (in my 36 years living in seven states) and your list is full of shit.

Re: Most Free Least Free Freedom in the 50 States
Pennsylvania is freer than all six of its neighboring states but has slipped since 2007. The state is mediocre on fiscal policy but much better than average on government employment. Transportation and social-services spending are notably higher than average, even given the state’s density, grant funding, and poverty rate. For a northeastern state, its gun-control laws are not awful, while marijuana sentencing is reasonably humane, even though the state has not decriminalized it at all. Pennsylvania has dramatically liberalized gambling, adding quite a bit to the state treasury. The state’s homeschool laws are perhaps the worst in the country, and its private-school regulations are not much better. Pennsylvania is one of only three states to have no form of community rating in small group and individual health insurance (Hawaii and Virginia are the other two). However, mandates are rather high and have been rising in recent years, raising the price of health-insurance policies by at least 42.9 percent. Occupational licensing is rare. Eminent domain has been partially reformed, but asset-forfeiture law is quite bad. Smoking bans have recently been put into place, but there is a “ventilated area” exception for restaurants, and bars are simply required to have nonsmoking sections.
 Quoting: Phennommennonn


Yeah, I am tracking what you say Phen. As a kid from the 'burbs, where I grew up was relatively reasonable. Having gone back on leave over the years I have watched it deteriorate into a worsening hell hole.

Why? Well where I am from there’s a huge influx of New Jersey folks...who fled that States high taxes, and tyrannical government to simply demand it in PA. Gun Control...up, Nanny State...up, Taxes...up. Add to that the influx of 3rd world nationals, mostly from India and Pakistan into my AO, as well as an increasing illegal population...and there ya go.

Now this is focused in the trifecta cities in PA. Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and Pittsburg but urban sprawl is extending it. Nothing pisses me off more than paying all these taxes, to watch it get pissed away in those cities while we are ignored in fly over. That and being told something that was perfectly legal yesterday, but banned today because a bunch of new neo nazi neighbors moved in and decided they didnt like that activity (ATV's, Shooting Ranges, Hunting, ect).

I used to joke that if I thought for one second that blowing every bridge to New Jersey would cause that State to drift off into the Atlantic I would. I don’t care how others live or their communities...vote with your feet so to say. But this cancer is spreading to where there are few and far between liberty zones left...the locusts consume and move on to greener fields to ravage. And the Progressives are doing a bang up job of federalizing everything and making it so there are no safe zones.

JMHO.

As far as laws go, yeah, we are fairly free. No sales tax, which is great for visitors and our neighborly states but for those of us who live here, it's getting harder and harder to stay afloat financially. They tax the HELL out of us with property tax. In the next town over my Mom has a 3 Bd, 1.5 Ba Cape on .18 acres and her taxes are about $7,000/yr. This year in our little town our property taxes will rise $1 per $1000. I'm ready to jump ship. :(
