    6 Anaheim, CA $49,622
    7 Raleigh, NC $47,878

    They think things are bad enough with the social programs they have now. They think things will be worse if it's under Republican leadership. Many people don't have the confidence they need in themselves. :(

    Not saying Dems are underconfident, but a lot of the poor are. :(

    um . . . your info is seriously skewed. You forgot to adjust for cost of living. Most of the cities on your list have astronomical costs of living. San Fran for example.

    All he asked for was a list of the richest cities. That's what I gave him. You want to give him a different list...go right ahead.

    That's not my info anyway. You think I would personally know something like that???

    It came from MSN Money or something. I'll try and find it if you want.

    After the Katrina flushing, Houston got "blessed" with the refuse.
