Well, well, well. All those who came -- to get away from it all -- have summarily brought it , warts and all, with them.
Let's get a few things straight. Progressive is not all it's cracked up to be. Seems to me that liberal is definitely not liberal any more, or intelligently progressive. Er, ah, folks, liberal means ----libertarian. And from what I've seen in the last 15-20 years, so-called liberal and progressive are actually quite intolerant and very statist. Not cool to be Republican ? Well, I used to think that until Democrats and their associates became -- control freaks -- statists and NIMBYS. They want regulations just like the metro area disasters they have fled. How sad and short-sighted.
You can elect any so-called progressive panderer you want, but good government may be better realized as -- less -- rather than more...
And utopian ideals will not, as too many wags surmise, result in the ultimate desired effect.
Though the new demographic is labeled sophisticated, perhaps they really don't get it at all. The demise of that vaunted ideal of RURAL is surely at hand, by the very hand of those who avowedly came -- to get away from it all !!!!
Too bad there's not real intellect or vision at work here. Just a shrug of the shoulder, more mindless pontification and political pandering.
You all newcomers made it happen, and if you'd a good mind among you, you'd stop it dead in it's tracks. But that's surely too much to ask.
Alas, the die has probably been cast, and you all have, despite any and all abject repressive (land) regulations, which probably exacerbate the problem, have made your neo-suburban bed, and will, with us, the overlooked and unrequited former residents, have to lay in it. Your mess, our problem.
