Google's Addiction to Cheap Electricity

jaxon6 As a Rhode Islander (254 comments)

I have to call bullshit on that union comment. 'We are the laughing stock of states in the union'?


Around these parts, in this the smallest state in the union, we would call the problems of Oregon a good day. As self-declared laughing stocks go, we take the cake. And just because Newport is nice doesn't do jack for the rest of the state.

Union-controlled socialist state?
Only state beside Michigan to lose population last year?
The popular game show 'Criminal Proceedings Against a Crooked Rhode Island Politician'?
Despicable infrastructure and public education?

But hey, we should all ignore the local economy and housing situation because they're shooting some movies and TV shows here, including Richard Gere's new movie about a dog. Oh ya, that other dog movie Underdog? Shot in Rhode Island too.

'Shoot your dog movies here Hollywood! We're cheaper!'

Oh, and don't get me started on the accent or the townies.
