OK, so at least Michigan isn’t LAST – sorry, Rhode Island!  Notice the very low amounts of population increase in the Midwest (and even lower for Michigan).  On the other hand notice that the south and Pacific areas are increasing, mostly due to immigration (illegal through Arizona and New Mexico and more legal through California).  Let’s pull Michigan out of this crap-hole!

Oh – just to let everbody know, my cousin has the flu, so I won’t be  going to Wisconsin today – another Christmas present to yall – more blog posts from me! 😛

Done Analyzing,
