RF is not 'black magic' – It's Synthesis, Optimization, Analysis and Realization.

Red/blue, Black/red

[Some …uh… human being hacked into my pitiful little blog and posted a gratuitous advertisement this morning. Feeling violated I deleted it and changed my password. “Feeling violated” got me thinking about what we do with our tax money.]

Net revenue flow to (from) federal government

I read about how some people (but only 100,00 in Texas, wow!) in some of the ‘red’ states signed petitions for secession from the union. Then I got to wondering, “Where does all the federal money go? Do some states make money off the federal government, and if so, which ones?”

On average, the “Blue States” are supporting the “Red States.”

I found an answer for the interval, 1990 – 2009 here.

So, if you live in New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Minnesota, Texas, California, and so on, I can see why you might want to secede. But if you live in Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Arizona, Louisiana  and so on, I would be very quiet if I were you — House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan might come down there and garnishee your whole state and local budgets.

Just sayin’…
