If you have ever been to Utah you would know that it is much different than any other state with the exception of southern Idaho which is really North Utah. The LDS church dominates everything in Utah and Southern Idaho (to a lesser extent). Not necessarily a bad thing. The schools are good, crime is low (except polygamy ), people are polite, streets are clean, etc. The ski industry did help liberalize the drinking laws and helped diversity somewhat.

But you don't have a motorcycle, so it evens out.

"The ski industry did help liberalize the drinking laws and helped diversity somewhat."



You say that like those are good things rather than neither-good-nor-bad. Liberalized drinking laws can mean more fun (good) and more crime and traffic deaths (bad). "Diversity" can mean more exposure to different types of people (good) or tension between differing cultural values (bad).



I think the Mormons are a little nutty, but then again, I think all religions are. The Mormons just seem to have their sh*t together more than any other ethnic/religious group. I'd vote for Mitt in a heartbeat. And Utah sounds like one of the best places on Earth to live.

Well now you should know the lib definition of diversity is a whole bunch of people who look different, but think exactly the same.



You never hear the pinkos clamoring to include any Christian conservatives amongst their crowd to promote "diversity."

You're right, they don't know anything about diversity. It's just a mantra.



You'll find more diversity at a Baptist church picnic than at a Berkeley faculty meeting.

The question was what to do if you don't have a garage....



I have a garage, I wouldn't live in a place that didn't. I ride all year except the week or two of snow we get and if your too lame to do the most basic work on your on bike then we nothing in common

Default Don't generalize i.e. Right wing doesn't have a monopoly on great places to live

Actually liberal Vancouver B.C. is ethnically diverse and has a very low crime rate. Seattle has a very low crime rate as well. Not as low as Vancouver. Vancouver has nice clean streets, liberal drinking laws, etc. Between the two Vancouver or Salt Lake I would choose Vancouver and Seattle over Salt Lake..
