I keep hearing people wanting to move from their current state.   Can we get a running list of what's good and bad about each particular state from residents of said state.  I'll start for Michigan.


Good:
-Pro-gun attorney general in Mike Cox
-Gun laws are pretty good (hi-caps allowed, CCW allowed)
-Great hunting and fishing
-Detroit Redwings
-Plenty of outdoor recreation during all seasons
-Casinos
-Great Lakes and the Mackinac Bridge
-70 mph speed limit on interstates




Bad:
-Liberal Governor that panders to Unions and welfare recipients
-Reliance upon blue collar industries that are quickly disappearing
-Horrible job market/economy
-Bitter cold at times in winter
-Fireworks...all the good ones are illegal
-No death penalty
-Detroit Lions
-US Senator Carl Levin (democrat) is from this state

Dislike influx of snowbirds and tourists.

Although I tolerate the tourists, who pay hotel and rental car taxes, thus no state income tax.

Dislike:

No Open Carry
NFA is illegal! Registration is only a defense to prosecution.

All the border counties.
All the counties with big cities
Most of the eastern counties.
No Fault Divorce
No college campus carry.

And the big one - a restaurant won't serve me a pitcher of beer when I'm alone. But they will serve me and a buddy two pitchers.

Like: Almost everything.  Good people, great scenery, great gun laws.

Dislike: Most of SLC.  High taxes.  And, while not a problem for me, I hear our liquor laws are really screwed up.

I've only lived here about 3.5 years, so I may not be the best judge of all the issues involved.  That said, my impression of the Oregon coast:

Good:
Summer weather
General seasons (no draw) for Elk, Deer and Bear - not statewide
Cheese
NFA friendly state

Bad:
Hippies & Flakes dominate state politics
Can/Bottle Tax aka Deposit
100% Full Serve Gas

Really?

I was in OH (Columbus) for the first time a few weeks ago and was surprised how well mannered the drivers were.

Here, you either have a huge Hummer 6 inches off your back bumper while doing 70 mph or two little old ladies driving side by side doing 45 on the highyway with a mile long line of traffic behind them.

Likes;

still generally pretty pro-gun

Dislikes;

Philthydelphia
The influx of new jersey/new york libtards that moved into the very rural eastern counties of pa ("to get out of the city") and brought the fucking city with them and imposed it on the folks that grew up out there

What do I like?

Nothing about it!

What do I dislike?

Too many pansy looking/ acting "men".
Can't own any cool guns.
Taxes are absolutey insane.  40% on income and 17.5% VAT (value added tax) on purchases.
The pacifist way of life (if you are robbed or attacked you really are encouraged no to fight/ just play dead.)  Fuck that.
Can't own any cool guns.



Link Posted: 11/18/2008 3:23:47 PM EDT
Pros:
MGs, suppressors, and short barreled firearms legal
Good cops
Southern mentality
Plenty of self-reliant folks, just head out to the rural areas.

No CCW until 21 (in Maine it is 18)
Premarital sex illegal...usually not enforced
Streetsweepers and USAS-12s banned...even with DD registration.
Libtard infiltrators.

We've also got all the great Cascade lakes for:

hiking
camping
wakeboarding

Lots of areas for:

snowboarding
wheeling
dirt biking
and other motor sport areas all over.  

Not to mention we have more micro breweries here than anywhere else in the world (Cascade Lakes FTW), and Pendleton Whiskey.
