I lived in Cincinnati for about, oh, 3 or 4 hundred years and that place is definitely schizophrenic! The county government is uber-conservative (As in Sheriff Simon Leis of People vs Larry Flynt and Mapplethorpe fame), while the city hierarchy is just slightly left of Lenin. This makes for some interesting infighting in the area...for about 30 seconds, then you start to fantasize about hermetically sealing any building with a politician or a lawyer in it. It's amazing the palpable difference in atmosphere you find by crossing the bridge into Kentucky, something I did as often as possible until I finally stopped going back. Now that I live in the People's Republic of Massachusetts, I notice the same sharply defined attitude change at the NH border. The only thing that keeps me from joining the FSP is that I'm afraid that NH may not be far enough to go for safety sake and I have people in Alaska. NH may be in my immediate future but not long term. I intend to really bugout!

i'm a total southern and western snob, but this might get me to join FSP and move out there, if the Senate passes it

Way back when, I was born in Massachusetts and by a not so simple twist of fate I spent my senior year here. That's when I met what was to be my life-long best friend. 20 years of correspondence and commiseration across the miles only cemented our bond. When circumstances freed me from certain obligations in KY I jumped at the chance to come up here and get reacquainted with him and some of my extended family. As it turns out, I get along with his family as well as I do with him and now I'm practically kin to them. I swear that the fact that they own a 53 acre pig & sheep farm just this side of the NH border was not a factor in the decision...but it doesn't suck either. In case of a quick meltdown, I've got somewhere to jump to.

Furthermore, Massachusetts is not so pervasively liberal as it's made out to be. It's overall political views are skewed by the massive urban center of Boston. As a large city in a small state, it tends to dominate any democratic system. Also, there are many, many colleges in the state, which draw students from around the nation and the world. College students seem to have a slight inclination to the left, wouldn't you say. I guess it's kind of like a Socialist State Project, drawing leftists from everywhere to affect politics at a local level.
I live in the Worcester area and spend most of my time in the north central part of the state. Up there, one of the worst names you can call a person is 'Kennedy'.

Illinois is afflicted in the same manner via Chicago, where the people are REALLY politically active and everybody is encouraged to vote......several times in fact....and that means everybody....including the dead.....

One of my earliest memories of having a good time with a young lady was in that town,  or around there someplace.  It involved a perfectly horrid car trip for what seemed like forever,  with my supposed stepfather (though he never was as far as I was concerned) who was also a perfectly horrid person.

The young lady in question had long blonde hair,  and a last name that didn't seem to have enough vowels in it,  or something,  and she and I had a *good* time.

*ah*,  memories...

I've heard that about that town...

PA has both Philly and Pittsburgh,  so I guess you could say we're gettin' it from both ends.  :-)  There are other "cities" in the state, but they aren't anything like those two,  by comparison,  and don't amount to much.  Harrisburg is a freakin' joke.  Dunno if they get into that dead people thing,  though.

That may be the case in Youngstown.  It's an aging city and most of the inhabitants are part of "greatest generation" (I hate that phrase, BTW) or were big union guys in the steel industry.  They still believe everybody owes them something.  While their whole lives they depended on government or outright crooks in the union to help them survive and still rely on them for their future.

Yeah, that's about right. And the USWA is still infested with outright commies (People forget that Gus Hall got his start there), and is "a contiunuation of high school by other means". The whole Valley is a pit of cheesesuckery.

As for the rest of the state, well, it's where I've made my stand, for better or worse. If the 'Pugs weren't so corrupt and the ballots so screwed here, it would be possible to give them some Libertarian competition (as in Indiana) and keep them reasonably straight.

Update:  Well, according to Bill St. Clair's blog, the N.H. Senate has amended the House's version of the bill...so they can "explore" the idea of ID...

It figures.   :angry:  B*st*rds.

And (thank you to the commentor on my blog entry) there's another bill that might sneak the New Hampshire REAL ID ban past the Senate, along with kicking FEMA out of the state.

HB1582's docket shows that the NH Senate passed a modified version of the bill, the House requested a committee of conference, and the Senate refused. So the bill died.

Here's a link to a map showing where all the states stand in terms of real ID:
