The 20-year Demise of a Blue State

We have some neighbors here in GA who moved here from Los Angeles for a job at Lockheed. From the minute they arrived here ten years ago, all they do is whine about how much they hate Georgia, and what a bunch of stupid conservative rednecks we all are. No matter the topic of conversation, whether it's politics, restaurants, theatre, art, dog grooming, you name it, California just does things oh, so much better. One night at a neighborhood party where a bit of wine was served, the wife of this couple started up about her beloved California and how she felt so completely stifled creatively having to live in this hotbed of bible-believing globull warming deniers. Another neighbor, who had had more than his fair share of wine, got right up in her face and suggested that if California was so wonderful, why didn't she and hubby pack their things and go back there!!! The couple stopped attending neighborhood parties after that, but we did notice that when anyone put a sign in their yard supporting a conservative politician, it would be removed in the dark of night within 24 hours. Oddly, NONE of her Obama signs was ever taken. A couple of years ago the husband was offered a transfer back to California, and he took it. We couldn't wait to see them go, but it turned out that only the hubby left. They got a divorce and she stayed. Right in the middle of this horrible, bible-thumping hotbed of conservatism.

I've wondered about that. The media talks about NH being so conservative, but the people we know there are as liberal as they come. Of course, they are all Massachusetts transplants who fled Taxachusetts but now that they have theirs, want to slam the door on anyone else coming in, and they are also determined to turn NH into another leftie utopia just like the one they left.

I was wondering why those bus windows were blacked out.

Actually, even her "rape" story sounds to me like she got drunk with a guy and then had sex with him, but the next day - or a week, month or years later - decided that she should not have done that. It's ridiculous stories like this that cause authorities to disbelieve rape victims unless they come in right away and have evidence, - preferably on their bodies. There is no "rape epidemic" on college campuses. There is, however, an epidemic of stupid college girls who go out for the evening dressed like hookers, get drunk at bars and frat parties, then once they sober up find themselves thinking, "What did I Dooooo!!! This is followed by a quick trip NOT to the police, but to the college administration board of sexual assault. No wonder more and more guys that age decide to just stay in their rooms and surf porn online, rather than deal with these idiot feminists.
This is absolutely wrong, but I have to admit that if you are going to have a Christmas pageant at school, if the teachers can put up Easter decorations etc., then it's only fair to throw in a little Islam. Now don't get me wrong. I was born and raised a Presbyterian, so I have not crossed over to the dark side. But the Muslims have made it very clear that they are going to take our treasured freedoms and use them to infiltrate our government, our educational system, our media, etc. We will hang ourselves on our own political correctness. So bottom line, religion belongs at HOME, and education belongs in school. Unless, of course, the school offers a course in Comparative religions like the one I took at my small Christian college in the Midwest.
Skeptic it is not the United States who is holding Cuba back and forcing its citizens to live in a hellhole. It is the CASTROS. Other Western countries trade with Cuba and allow their citizens to vacation there, but it is STILL a hellhole, except for the elite at the top.
They probably will for the rest of YOUR lifetime, seeing as they are grooming Raul's daughter to be his replacement.
Excellent analysis. I pointed out to one of my leftie friends who is rejoicing about this development that the U.S. exporting goods to Cuba does not help the Cuban economy. It will not create jobs in Cuba unless the Cuban government will allow American capitalists to create businesses there, free from government intervention and confiscation. Frankly, I think the only reason Cuba would want diplomatic relations with us is so they can feed at the foreign aid trough, like all of the other third world hellholes out there. I have enough friends who escaped Fidel fifty years ago that I will NOT vacation there until ALL of the Castros are gone and a free market democracy takes their place.
I doubt te Target incident ever even happeded. Moochele did not go to Target without an entourage of Secret Servicce agents and photographers at the side throughout the excursion. I seriously doubt any normal shoper ever got within 50' of Moochelle. That whole Target thing was just a publicity stunt made to try to soften her image and make her "appear" to be normal.
