#1 The same usual suspects that decry clear cutting forests and destroying 'delicate' environments for furry little woodland creatures have no qualms about destroying and rendering the economic landscape for that last bit of gold.

#2 Watch for a similar exodus on top of the current one in Massachusetts given it's economic problems. I was listening to a radio talk show in Worcester the other day on the way into work, and the host commented on how New Hampshire is becoming not only attractive to Massachusetts residents at wits end regarding the prospective increase in taxes and fees, but others states, including those not in the North East.

From the Boston Herald today.

#4 Politicians and policy wonks are so far behind times. They have no idea that in a service economy you only need virtual offices and infrastructure. There is no need for financial types, traders, software designers, etc. to have to live in a high tax state when you have Texas, Tennessee, Nevada, Florida, to move to and save tons of money. Florida may have lost a lot of trades people to Texas (hurricane reconstruction) but it is bringing in equal loss income with people like this who buy bigger homes, spend more money and attract their friends to do the same thing.

Maybe some, but the boys at the wheels are basically Economic Creationists. They believe money and capital are magically manifested out of thin air, or printing presses [or computers].

#7 Hey Delphi, honk if you live near Worcester!!

After 36 years in the state (a lot more for the wife) we are now looking to move on out. The only problem is our (her) requirement that we stay within 2 hours of the grand kids.

That still gives us most of NH some of Vt and some of Maine.

Other big prob is that ex-Massaholics are turning NH blue bringing their diseased attitudes with them.

#8 Go ahead and move. Just don't come to Kaliphornia. We already have enough of our own problems.

#9 The blue states tend to tax everything moving, everything nailed down, and every activity.

#10 Aw, geez, just what Florida needs.....more damn Yankees!

On behalf of the Sunshine State, to which someday soon I hopefully will return from the People's Republic of Johnson County (hack, spit).....if you do decide to move there, leave those freakin' idiotic policies of your home state behind, ok?

Remember....this is the way we like doing things, and we don't particularly care how you do it in NY/NJ/Mass/whatever other frigid hellhole you came from.

#11 Damn, Blondie - don't hold back.

Tell us what you really think. :-D

(BTW, we think the same thing here in central Virginia - especially about the assholes in northern Virginia.)

#12 Damn, CB, what happened to the old adage about southern hospitality? :-) however, i reckon the south can keeps its cocaine, cockroaches, crime, and thong bathing suits. I prefer New England Fall foliage, Museums, and seeing people with actual clothes on.

Ok, the foliage is spectacular. I'll grant you that. I'm not much of a museum kind of girl. I prefer national/state parks. To each their own, right?

However, there are some people I don't mind seeing kinda nekkid......but I've always been a bad girl....

(You forgot the hurricanes, Dino. Big, huge, honkin' hurricanes.....You end up in the Keys, your significant other in Tampa, and your dog in the Bahamas....)
