Louisianian is worse. New York has a lot of government people who get caught, but Louisiana is systematically corrupt. In a lot of ways Louisiana is a 3rd world country. Angola prison in Louisiana is quite possibly the worst in the US. Here on the west coast we had access to who Trump was. Nobody around here believed he could possibly win because he is such an obvious buffoon. He is only where he was because he's been very lucky not to get caught with all his criminal schemes, but regulators were mostly looking elsewhere. He also has one single talent, he can sell anything to a specific type of person. If he hadn't been born into money, he would have been a very successful used car saleman in one of those places that offer financing for people who have bad credit. People with a better developed BS detector see him coming miles away. New York City people in specific saw through him and thought of him as the town joke because it's kind of in the NYC DNA to be cynical of anybody pitching something that looks too good to be true. Replacing oil heat with natural gas has a lot of advantages. In the 90s there was a big hoo haw about getting rid of the Rural Electrification Program which had become obsolete, but its mandate should have been expanded to bring infrastructure to rural areas. Internet access in a lot of rural areas is horrible.
