Anyone notice this post started in 2007?  Anyone notice the symptoms started before 2001's September cattle stampede terrorist attacks?

Anyone notice that the only thing that has been deliberately crashed has been the US northwestern job market with oil prices being artificially dumped (it was titled a "strengthening of the dollar") resulting in pretty much half the workers out here suddenly staying home a lot more?

Are they rebelling and stringing up the bastards manipulating prices?  SHIT no.  They're off to fight over a job at the corner gas station.

As I said elsewhere.  We're too far past the event horizon for the majority to smell or even SEE the crock we're all being stewed in.

Could those of us awake even put our collective fingers on who to string up?  And even if we did find Mr. ScrewJob McManipulator then what?  Try to explain to the local sheriff that this multi-billionaire is responsible for all this chaos and needs to be arrested?  Or, try to convince a jury of our "peers" of the pure evil this guy did which is why we strung him up?

Yep.  I'm pretty sure we'll not solve this until Screwball McManipulator sets the collapse in motion of his own free will.  And frankly, I'm tired of living in a cliquish hell hole surrounded by people who hate me for reasons untold, and now with cops equally as sonzabitches as the guys I left behind on the coast (where business was profitable and frequent.)

This is a warning to the rest of you.  Small town Wyoming is for retirees with suitable nest eggs.  If you're young, and into guns, the locals will HATE YOU.  Its wonderful for tourism in some areas, its wonderful for oil jobs (scratch that last one its not wonderful anymore for oil jobs) and it sucks at anything logical, like food supply, friendly locals and healthy gene pool (I had a local friend, one of the few, tell me once that "inbreeding is excessive around here."  Of the two competent engineers I know in my area, they both sought out women and a living outside Wyoming and came back after retiring, with a significantly larger nest egg than mine.  (And I brought a hundred grand of my own hard earned cash with me when I moved... which I've more than eaten up.))

So my warning is to those of you considering moving to Wyoming.  Unless you're a manipulative bastard with at least 500 grand in the bank and your profession is MECHANIC, you will NOT find work, they will go out of their way to avoid you and keep you hunting work out of town.  Don't waste your hard earned money and lifespan on this place, unless you hit the bigger towns down south, or use it as a waypoint on the way to Montana or Idaho.  Otherwise, steer clear of these places as they are not populous enough to guarantee a newcomer a chance to prove himself.  You will be treated like crap, outright insulted at times, but mostly trash talked by cowards (remember, you carry a gun! which scares natives of "gun country.")

Some will give you a chance, but expect those who are in the "winning clique" holding offices at city and county government, to go out of their way to screw you over, and then smile at you and pretend to be friendly.  Oh, and now the cops are out in force.  It ain't a road traveler friendly state anymore.  Maybe Montana might still be among the top two states for drivers, but Wyoming has become ugly.  Local cops are still friendly to locals, but state cops, with VERY FEW EXCEPTIONS, are money grubbing scum.

And frankly, your constant whining about your circumstances is now beyond tiresome.  Are you being physically held in Wyoming by chains?  If not, since things are so bad for you there, here's a hint: MOVE. Get your sorry, whiny ass full of excuses out of there. The only thing that is keeping you from leaving that "hell hole" is YOU.  Many millions of people have moved from truly terrible places to places that are still bad compared to Wyoming and yet they managed to thrive.  Instead of constantly complaining and making excuses, make the necessary changes. Instead of spending time and energy bellyaching, use that time and energy to plan your escape. Only this time, scout out the prospective destinations more thoroughly.

Good luck.  I truly hope you find happiness somewhere.

Hell of a first post, nuffsaid.

Yeah, I was going to let you guys fluff yourselves on this one, but that remark shows lack of integrity or lack of insight on your part.   And that's because I'm not the asshole who wishes ill on others following in his wake.  I'm paying it forward by warning other young, skilled professional types from small town Wyoming.  Don't get me wrong.  ITS GORGEOUS.  But unless you bring huge money bags... and your own woman, the love affair ends quickly when you realize the only thing you get IS scenery (and that's if you hit Wind River, Cody, Sheridan, Buffalo or the Black Hills areas, and those places are gorgeous... they really are.)

First of all:
nuffsaid is an existing member here who didn't have the guts to insult me using their regular account.  That fact alone should be obvious to someone who doesn't lose a chess match before the seventh move.  Must be someone who adapted to the political and attitude climate in small town Wyoming.  Since some will need it spelled out, and so Ghost doesn't have to waste time on his keyboard explaining it, since I suspect he would, lets say that climate is known as: smile to your face, stab you in the back and trash talk you while you bleed.  Not unheard of.

If you're not the type who reads well or fast, here's the gist of it:


I warned a few newcomers I spoke to, back in the day about the issues, and they later mentioned running into those same issues in even bigger towns and then promptly moved out of state.  At least one of those fellows that fit the above description was a very awesome guy who used to post here, in fact.  This is why I do this.  So that those who will benefit from it, will be saved from buying in and being locked in until they can sell things or save up enough to make another move and leave the land and house under whoever's stewardship, while they go job and house hunting out of state.  (Remember that the driving distances out here are not insignificant, especially at three bucks a gallon.)


I've been talking to the youngins in town lately, who aren't nearly as antisocial and steaming hostile. Asked if they'd stay in town once they graduated.  With the exception of a few politically connected family offspring who after half a decade still wouldn't give me the time of day, TO A ONE they all told me "if I had a good job, I  would stay, otherwise, no."  The local older folks tell me flat out, that they LOVE the peace and quiet, but they think young people have a very difficult time and are also very often targeted by the cops for a quick cash citation.  Reading the blotter one notices exactly that.  Each week.

Those of you on here, lurking or reading, should pay attention to this, since as a newcomer, you will be lower on that food chain than most.  You may run into good people, as I did, but they are rarely in a position to help you in any significant way.

So before you +1 someone whom you know is not a newcomer to the forum, for regurgitating what Mama Liberty often said, think it through. 

I've been doing a lot of research before my next move.  None of the FSW folk researched the crap side of small towns, when they declared Wyoming a good place to live where "any swinging dick with a hammer can find a job" while the young ones, like me, were so enamored by coming to a gun friendly state and being surrounded by our fellow gun nuts, that the honey moon lasted about as long as it took to notice the bank accounts dwindling, and the financial (and thriving) potential of the area being less than what was advertised ("a job" doesn't mean "a good living.")  All the youngins who moved based on those claims, have left for those Californicated states that have good jobs or business opportunities and less screwy town politics.  They learned, as I did, that the bullshit is the same, throughout America, and most of the world.  So if you're going to deal with bullshit, at least be well paid for it, and live in a place where you can spend that money and have stuff to do and someone with whom you can do it.

For the young single male, there's a second catch.  Any eligible attractive female, will generally hold out for the rich well to do boys.  And they have their pick, its a sellers market.  The only time that might change is if you hit a college town, and then, its iffy on quality, but much better odds.


As for your magical millions of people who abandoned all and moved, I don't recall anyone making comments to bolster your remarks, having moved somewhere completely abandoning what they have, and going broke at mid life in a shit economy where even oil guys in Alaska are getting laid off.  The people who abandoned everything and succeeded beyond their wildest dreams, are hearsay, they're like the freedom fighting Americans who wanted freedom.  Or maybe George Soros and Warren Buffett.  Do you even know anyone like that?  As far as the average living human is concerned, such people exist, but in our proximity, they do not exist.  A few people were like that, but much like my family, they were rarities who got lucky in moving that way.  They did the same when they came to the states but they moved in a peak economy with a peak real estate and construction market, (not that they knew it) and even THEY, being adventurous, intelligent, extremely well educated and brought a nest egg with them, still had a lot of trouble getting things established.  And they moved to a pretty progressive area (progressive meaning forward thinking, high tech and accepting of newcomers) and still ran into a lot of that bureaucracy mixed with petty provincialism.  I'm pretty sure the majority of third and second worlders who moved to mainland US during the great depression didn't thrive until after the war ended.  So your argument is moot, or just plain ignorant of real world realities.  Taking huge gambles hasn't ever paid off for me.  I'm in the process of working to stack the deck in my favor before I ever move again.  When it comes to "dumping it all and moving," I'm the guy who already made the incredible mistake of moving to Wyoming and gambling a few good years of healthy life on it.  It was a gamble... and like any "gambles" of mine... I'm donating money to the house.  My thing is gambits.  Has been, always will be.

Then again, I'm not asking for sympathy, since that would be pandering to Silver's sycophants.  I'm whining, bitching and expounding so that the next young suckers thinking to make a move to Wyoming and buying in after a few months of visiting, they'll think about it a few more months, throw their stuff in storage, experience a few more years, then move elsewhere and take everything out of storage when they get to a nicer locale.  I'm using my dumb idea and my bad luck to stack the deck in favor of others who might chance upon it and benefit.  Its called earning some good karma (which based on experience I really don't believe in) and maybe those dice will hit that necessary six someday when I need it.  Judging by prior experience, I'll stick to sure things, since gambling and "taking chances" has seldom worked for me.  So if you, dear young reader, decide to move to Wyoming, and once you get there, decide to purchase a property or a house, and things magically start falling through, ITS NOT YOU.  Do what I should have done.  Take the hint, pack your stuff and head over the nearest state border.  You'll thank me for it in the long run.

Anyone for whom this advice is beneficial, feel free to text me to let me know.  Feels good to know I helped save a few souls.  While I normally charge strangers for beneficial work, the knowledge that I've saved someone from my personal version of screwy hell is all the reward I require for this deed.

I am glad to read the clarification. It sounds like Destin is very passionate about sharing his experiences with his move to Wyoming. It also sounds like the warnings have perhaps run their course as members have been reading his warnings for years in many, many different threads.

Perhaps there is a win-win scenario that might satisfy all parties?

Destin could be provided his own thread in letís say the gulch area, which could be stickied for X amount of time. Here he could share his knowledge, stories, experiences, and frustrations Ė all the warnings about moving to Wyoming. This would allow newcomers and onlookers the chance to read such warnings without having to search through all the threads in which his warnings appear. This would also allow members to discuss such things as kittens playing with a ball of yarn while a baby coos nearby on a bed of feathers while that baby's mother is softly singing an old Celtic lullaby while unicorns frolic outside and glitter rainbows bounce off the walls - without being suddenly jarred with warnings about Wyoming. Warnings, which have nothing to do with kittens. Or balls of yarn. Or babies. Or cooing. Or feathers. Or moms. Or old Celtic lullabies. Or unicorns. Or rainbows. Or glitter for that matter.

Win-win, yes?!?

No, I'm not about to play favorites that way. Came close enough with the "bad news" sub category - which I notice isn't getting used anyway.

Mother Circe sees all states in the united corporations of America as unacceptable. Exdous from west and east coast into the "redoubt" is speeding up the evaporation of false sense of freedom and liberty in those areas. Mother Circe sees the flesh humans becoming more and more divided while their fictional authority overlords continue to prosper and swell with our false hoods. Mother Circe sees false premise designed to "hood wink" all those enslaved. Mother Circe would point out that Colorado is already gone, with Wyoming and Montana trying to finish the race to an even more stagnant "union" before the other. Mother Circe sees Idaho and Dakotas not far behind. Mother Circe's nature of the beast in these confabulations is plain, gauging good or bad in an entire system that is bad, is fulfilling the states indoctrination quota for the state. Mother Circe will smile again from Patmos !

I've been doing a lot of research before my next move.  None of the FSW folk researched the crap side of small towns, when they declared Wyoming a good place to live where "any swinging dick with a hammer can find a job" while the young ones, like me, were so enamored by coming to a gun friendly state and being surrounded by our fellow gun nuts, that the honey moon lasted about as long as it took to notice the bank accounts dwindling, and the financial (and thriving) potential of the area being less than what was advertised ("a job" doesn't mean "a good living.")  All the youngins who moved based on those claims, have left for those Californicated states that have good jobs or business opportunities and less screwy town politics.  They learned, as I did, that the bullshit is the same, throughout America, and most of the world.  So if you're going to deal with bullshit, at least be well paid for it, and live in a place where you can spend that money and have stuff to do and someone with whom you can do it.

For the young single male, there's a second catch.  Any eligible attractive female, will generally hold out for the rich well to do boys.  And they have their pick, its a sellers market.  The only time that might change is if you hit a college town, and then, its iffy on quality, but much better odds.


As for your magical millions of people who abandoned all and moved, I don't recall anyone making comments to bolster your remarks, having moved somewhere completely abandoning what they have, and going broke at mid life in a shit economy where even oil guys in Alaska are getting laid off.  The people who abandoned everything and succeeded beyond their wildest dreams, are hearsay, they're like the freedom fighting Americans who wanted freedom.  Or maybe George Soros and Warren Buffett.  Do you even know anyone like that?  As far as the average living human is concerned, such people exist, but in our proximity, they do not exist.  A few people were like that, but much like my family, they were rarities who got lucky in moving that way.  They did the same when they came to the states but they moved in a peak economy with a peak real estate and construction market, (not that they knew it) and even THEY, being adventurous, intelligent, extremely well educated and brought a nest egg with them, still had a lot of trouble getting things established.  And they moved to a pretty progressive area (progressive meaning forward thinking, high tech and accepting of newcomers) and still ran into a lot of that bureaucracy mixed with petty provincialism.  I'm pretty sure the majority of third and second worlders who moved to mainland US during the great depression didn't thrive until after the war ended.  So your argument is moot, or just plain ignorant of real world realities.  Taking huge gambles hasn't ever paid off for me.  I'm in the process of working to stack the deck in my favor before I ever move again.  When it comes to "dumping it all and moving," I'm the guy who already made the incredible mistake of moving to Wyoming and gambling a few good years of healthy life on it.  It was a gamble... and like any "gambles" of mine... I'm donating money to the house.  My thing is gambits.  Has been, always will be.

Then again, I'm not asking for sympathy, since that would be pandering to Silver's sycophants.  I'm whining, bitching and expounding so that the next young suckers thinking to make a move to Wyoming and buying in after a few months of visiting, they'll think about it a few more months, throw their stuff in storage, experience a few more years, then move elsewhere and take everything out of storage when they get to a nicer locale.  I'm using my dumb idea and my bad luck to stack the deck in favor of others who might chance upon it and benefit.  Its called earning some good karma (which based on experience I really don't believe in) and maybe those dice will hit that necessary six someday when I need it.  Judging by prior experience, I'll stick to sure things, since gambling and "taking chances" has seldom worked for me.  So if you, dear young reader, decide to move to Wyoming, and once you get there, decide to purchase a property or a house, and things magically start falling through, ITS NOT YOU.  Do what I should have done.  Take the hint, pack your stuff and head over the nearest state border.  You'll thank me for it in the long run.

Anyone for whom this advice is beneficial, feel free to text me to let me know.  Feels good to know I helped save a few souls.  While I normally charge strangers for beneficial work, the knowledge that I've saved someone from my personal version of screwy hell is all the reward I require for this deed.

Even if I thought your posts were kind of whiny I wouldn't say so, since it is none of my business.   The fact is I pretty much agree with you even if I wouldn't put it quite in the same terms.  I've had some experience with FSW and Wyoming before FSW  in general.

I never lived in Wyoming but I worked there in mineral exploration, mostly uranium, over years off and on.   When that was  over I still spent some time there.  Just generally observing and talking to  people and seeing certain signs  made me more than a little leery of moving there.

Mother Circe sees all (snip)

Circe is infamous for turning men foolish enough to partake of her offerings into mindless swine.  Check.

Kirke was the native habitat of the herb that protected Odysseus from Circe's evil when he went to her home to rescue his friends.  Circe would never offer Kirke, but would know how to spell it.

I reject your offers, and draw my sword.  What next?  Will you now ask me to bed?  I think not. By what gods' names would you swear not to take my manhood? 

Frankly, you've offered nothing at all to make you appear desirable.  Quite the opposite.

It doesn't take a goddess to increase the level of stupid in this world, just another idiot annoying their betters.

At least no rescue is required, no one here is foolish enough to take this drivel seriously.

Yes like ML, I have MC on my ignore list, it is not very long as MC is the only one on it.  I came close to putting GD,PKL and whatever else he/she/it called itself on that list but felt the need to monitor its particular brand of drivel when it started posting incorrect opinions that could get someone killed. MC I just find irrelevant and annoying.
