Hey, Union Thug.
You sleep with dogs, you wake with fleas.
A left wing union official is surprised when a left wing governor and state legislature pushes a law through that is detrimental to their livelihoods. That’s incredible.
“Been to the border of PA and NY farm counties. PA allows fracking and their small town folks are driving around in brand new pickup trucks. Meantime NY refuses to allow it, and their small town folks drive in beat up pick up trucks. NY and PA border is like East Berlin vs West Berlin during the Cold War.”
Yep, the Southern tier has been destroyed by liberal policies emanating from Albany. It’s always been about NYC, nothing more. Western NY should be it’s own state.
Endicott Johnson shoes, IBM, and dozens of other large employers all gone.
“i cnnotfeel sorry, for these particular people. you vote for libtards, you get laws from libtards, and live under the consequences of libtard laws.”
The problem is some don’t live under the tards laws, they
move to greener pastures and foul them as well. These are
truly worthless people.
“Upstate to Huntsville is not THAT much of a culture shock. Upstate can be very rural. Huntsville has more rockets and better weather.”
exactly. Upstate NY is another world from the tri-state area. It looks more like rural Ohio in the west and Southern Maine or Vermont in the Adirondacks. Totally different type of people who tend to be more conservative.
My paternal grandfather's family left Erie County for southern Iowa in the mid-1850's. Grandma (an ever-so-proper Noordholland/Ostfriesland farmer's daughter) considered them to be "hillbillies."
Upstate New York and thereabouts is generally considered the largest continuously forested area east of the Mississippi. I’ve always been amazed by that.
I can’t WAIT to move out of NY. Hubby and I live in upstate and we vote as conservative as possible (which isn’t easy since it’s full of RINOs)
Of course our vote is lost in the sea of libtards from downstate, from nearby Monroe, Onondaga and Tompkins county. Funny thing though, it seems that ERIE county is swinging a bit more conservative these days.
If we moved to another conservative state, we would most definitely keep right on voting conservative.
We welcome you in east Tennessee....
It’s fascinated me for a couple decades now that Remington has toughed it out by staying in New York. They watched Colt and Winchester go bust trying to pay union wages and put up with union BS in the Great Unionized Northeast. Remington has watched Ruger, in non-union AZ gradually catch up with it as being the largest gun maker. It’s not exactly comparable since their products don’t all compete but the market pressure is real. There is a sympathy, however, among gun buyers, to not put up with makers who go along with stupid state rules. Recall back in the 90’s when S&W got cute trying to get along with Clinton and it nearly did them in. I expect the top floor at Remington is getting an earfull from long-time customers about tolerating Kuomo.
Perhaps that handwriting on the wall in gigantic day-glo letters?
My daughter goes to school along the PA/NY border, about half way out. Her “environment” is quite similar to my college experience in Central VT. If it wasn’t NY, I could almost live there. Almost.
I’m a Zonie now and for coming up on 20 years. But I was raised in the Adirondacks. One of the most beautiful places on earth. When it ain’t raining or ‘mud season” ;)
The people are or were largely conservative and despise the edicts of Albany and NYC. Because NYC runs Albany. But many STILL vote Democrat because their forefathers did in perpetuity.
They will curse the libs to death. Then go vote for them because grandpa always did...Not all the folks there. But MANY.
I understand your point.
But i have had three generations of my family work at
Smith and Wesson. Their commitment to their craft is outstanding. The support of the second amendment outside of the 617 Area Code (General Boston vicinity) is strong. Unfortunately, our numbers are smaller outside of the urban areas.
Again, I appreciate your point, but I urge folks to not toss SW out with the Peoples Republic of Boston’s bathwater.
Yankees who move south and stay there are called dam Yankees.
