One of the reason why there's a lot of New Hampshirites moving to the South or to Canada is that people from MA moved just over the border to avoid taxes, formed a majority, and now are turning their state into MA. It's not like a lot of the people moving care about gay marriage, they just resent how fast the State is being changed.

People who vote are generally in the minority vs. the entire population. Anecdotally, this can support the idea that the majority of citizens either don't give a crap about gay marriage one way or the other, or that they support it but not to the degree they are going to hit a ballot box they never go to for anything else. Realistically, its an empty statement. Regardless, I find contention with your assessment as putting your own ideas about the whys and wherefores into the mouths of all those you described. Anecdotally, it holds even less value than my empty statement, and therefore, realistically, it is a black hole. So thanks for breaking physics, jerk!

I know a lot of people from New Hampshire (and I go up there at least once a month) and this is what they tell me. They feel that people from MA went there because of the taxes, discovered they didn't get as many services, and now are turning their state into another MA. The old majority of the "Live Free Or Die" state is now the minority. Many are sick of that and are leaving.

So yes, I do know what I'm talking about so shut your ignorant yapper.

My ignorant yapper? I'm not the one who is consistently oblivious to humor, or taking offense at it. Not to mention the fact that you certainly do not know or have spoken to, on this issue or any other, all, or even what can be considered a large number, of the 1,315,809+ residents, so I'd say you're talking out your ass.

So because you belligerently attacked my credibility, I have to go find one of the many articles I've spoken to my NH friends about over the past 3-4 years, while getting their input. Bullshit. We'll settle this in eight days the old fashioned way.

I think I was in 10th grade when my brother got nerf fencing. Me and a friend would have duels with them which amounted to the same tactics as a baseball bat fight. The sound it made tha-whapping against someone's back never stopped being hilarious.

Remember to take a moment and reflect on the fact that 6 years ago today, Dick Cheney shot his best friend in the face... and then made him apologize for getting shot in the face.

Cake with frosting depicting Dick Cheney shooting his friend in the face is appropriate for today's anniversary.
