It's always been cowboys and rodeos. Just drive 80 from east to west. Nothing there.... Hang a left at Cheyenne and get your ass to civilization... LOL. The Tetons are frigging amazing...Yes it is. And it has benefited tremendously from a large amount of Federal money invested in infrastructure. It would be a far poorer and far less habitable place, otherwise. But hey, facts don't matter. Wyoming is largely inhabited by trumpalos.
Some good friends/neighbors moved there, from here, because they decided they loved the mountains and the wilderness more than the coast. So they live there in what is basically a suburb, although with a beautiful mountain view, and lots of national parks and lakes all around. We spent a good bit of time visiting out there in 2018 and 2019 and IMHO it's one tweet away from a pogrom against Democrats and libby-rulls.
This, independents are independent for just this sort of schtick, Women are beyond pissed and the repubs have 0 answer(dog actually caught car) so now we wait.. Oct surprise?? WTF can be bigger than overturning ROE?? IMHO we are going to see an even bigger turn out than last time and prove that everyone in this country is not fucking EVIL... (I can dream right)The women I know, are pissed about Roe, viscerally pissed to the point of physical reactions. “Traumatized,” “betrayed,” “2nd class citizen” are common themes. This is across ages from college-aged up and across political parties. Even the ones who voted for Trump, who you could lump in the leopards ate my face category, are stunned that states would go straight to absolute bans including in cases of rape or incest. The only ones not reacting that way are evangelicals.
I’m not surprised that grassroots donations have dropped for R’s and increased for D’s.
I don’t think that this is the type of anger that will dissipate by the mid-terms or even the next election. I also will not be surprised if there is a noticeable increase in women, especially younger women, actually voting in the general elections.
Drove through from Colorado to Montana for the first time a couple of months ago. Lingering impression was of incredibly small towns, driving upwards of an hour on the interstate w/essentially no traffic, and snow fencing. Lots and lots of snow fencing. The solitude was interesting.Yes, several times. A very beautiful place, a complete curse in the winter.
"The solitude was interesting." Sounds like a breeding ground for 'Q'. More libraries, please.Drove through from Colorado to Montana for the first time a couple of months ago.

Not sure about Wyoming, but they trained a bunch around here.Didn't the Apollo astronauts practice being on the Moon in Wyoming?
There’s definitely no red wave going on in Pennsylvania where the GOP’s genius plan to run total losers is paying off. Here we see Dr. Oz (aka man of the people) doing some grocery shopping for crudités (had to look that one up) and is shocked by the prices (he’s worth $100M)
I heard a comment on, (PBS?) last night that she wants nothing more than to face TFG on the debate stage.
I found that to be a very entertaining image.
