I am also a resident, and about 7 years ago I was out of work for some time and the state was going to force me to buy health Insurance that I could not afford, so I didn’t, well, because, I couldn’t. I love this area of the country, and jobs are a-plenty here (lots of high-tech and health-care jobs) so as difficult as it is to be surrounded by liberal zombies, the Northeast is a great place to be. I have had to limit my exposure to the uniformed socialist agenda, but am also pretty quick to put them in their place with real facts. It’s kind of fun, actually.
Glad you’re enjoying yourself; me, I hate it.
But I’m an Old Man, I’ve lived here all my life, and I just can’t see pulling up stakes and going someplace else for the few years I have left.
Still, I constantly dream of Texas, Arizona, Wyoming, Montana... places like that - wide open spaces with no dippy liberals breathing down my neck.
