What a beautiful pile of dog crap President Obama has handed to trump.  The decision on the pipeline will force trump into a two front war on fossil fuel pipelines if you take into consideration the especially dirty Keystone project.  Double trouble for trump, in more ways than one.

What this proved is that activism and in your face attitudes of unpopular projects that add to climate problems just won't be tolerated.  The will is there for people to rise up against this kind of immoral corporate profit over good mentality.

Of course, this old time civil disobedience will work on many other issues as well, and I fully expect to see a lot of it in the next few years.

50. New Mexico
> Debt per capita: $3,303 (24th lowest)
> 2015 Unemployment rate: 6.6% (3rd highest)
> Credit rating: Aa1/AA
> Poverty: 20.4% (2nd highest)

New Mexico ranks as the worst run state on our list for the second consecutive year. Following a large and unexpected tax shortfall in the state’s fiscal 2016 and 2017 budgets, Moody’s downgraded the state’s credit rating and outlook. Despite the outlook, according to the credit agency, New Mexico has a strong history of balancing its budget, and the state’s debt levels are manageable and on the decline.

The likelihood of living in poverty is very high for individuals without a high school diploma. In New Mexico, fewer than 85% of adults have a high school diploma, nearly the lowest high school attainment rate, and more than 20% of state residents live in poverty, the second highest rate of all states. Like most poorly-run states, New Mexico’s labor market is struggling. The state’s labor force declined over the last five years, and 6.5% of workers were unemployed as of October, the highest October jobless rate of all states.
