I found this fascinating graphic and article at The Atlantic magazine that shows the income distribution of counties in the 48 Contiguous United States. New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington DC, cities all dedicated to stealing wealth from honest folks, have some of the highest concentrations of high earners. But look at the Bakken! The per capita income here is right up there with the usurers of Wall Street, the crooks of DC, and the degenerate freaks of Los Angeles. Imagine that.
I’m sure that rankles our “leaders,” and its an only a matter of time before they crush the prosperity of Western North Dakota.
