Places I Do Not Choose To Go

UPDATE: There seems to be somewhat of a backlash towards the Brattleboro-elites.

LET'S SHOOT THE SHERIFF AND THE DEPUTY

There are certain places here in the United States that I will not visit or live. I have zero interest. This morning the town of Brattleboro, Vermont comes to mind.

It appears that the town has become so steeped in Bush Derangement that some of its leaders are clamoring to arrest not just Bush, but also Cheney for war crimes, if either ever sets foot in their hallowed state.

Saying that if Hitler were still alive today and came to Vermont, he would undoubtedly be arrested, by golly, so therefore it was of utmost importance to arrest the new Hitlers, Bush and Cheney.

Yawn.

There was a time in my life, that I would go anywhere and see anything for almost any reason. But today, I simply am not attracted to places whose politics and demographics are to the extreme left in idyllic la-la land. Add Brattleboro and Vermont to the list of places like Boulder (which, yes I do pass through to and fro Wyoming), Berkeley, Asheville and many other extreme holdovers from the sixties. That's a good thing since there are many other locales to visit that suit me no end.

Such as this.

I've learned to always check out the political climate of a place before venturing there. It's a waste of my time and money otherwise.
