Re: Counter and Black & WhiteIf you bother to read DN and
Truth's posts on a regular basis, you would know as the rest of us do, that
the posts you deem sarcastic were nothing of the sort.
RandDN Subscriber & TRUTH were obviously sarcastically mocking
the hypocrisy and hate of "tolerant" Utah critics - which you (and
Maverick and Mister J and atl and Bob K) ironically merely confirmed
Lighten up everyone, and RE-read DN Subscriber 2 & TRUTH again... it's
called sarcasm. And I found their comments humorous.As a former
Californian who was "young, broke and single living in Salt Lake", and
now with 3 sons who are all doing the same--as college students--I can attest
that this is a fantastic place to live!As the article points out, it
has nothing to do with political, religious or the choice of an alternative
lifestyle--it has to do with opportunity, cost of living, and
recreational/social activities. My goodness people, let's not
try to use this article as a platform for your personal agendas, just enjoy it
for what it is.
One reads that the very young and very broke street population in SLC is quite
high--- not the hipsters with low paying jobs, but the kids kicked out for
not being who the parents would be proud of in their church.if you
Google "homeless gay salt lake", you get a number of hits similar to
this:(the DN system refused the post with long links, so pls look for
them)Now that the lds church has a "kindler, gentler" policy
towards its own Gay kids, I hope that church members are working to help prevent
further casting out of kids, and to help those already on the street.
The state with the highest percent of citizens in the 47% is that liberal
bastion of Mississippi.
re: Shaun "Also to say cafe rio is a top rated Mexican
resturant is laughable."Especially, when Barbacoa is so much
better!to RandAgreed. However, as the Wasatch front
becomes more cosmopolitan, there will always be a repressed & whiney
collective with a 1950's sitcom mentality.
Wow since so many of the comments here have been elitist, let me be the first to
welcome all these new folks here! My religion teaches us to love people not to
judge people! Come one and come all!
DN Subscriber & TRUTHI doubt it is the Republican voting habit
these folks would find disturbing. It's more likely the cloistered,
judgmental, and belligerent attitude you are exhibiting in your posts. That
doesn't taste good regardless of the political flavor. They can take
heart, though, Salt Lake City is becoming more diverse and open every year
despite your best efforts. "Young broke and single? otherwise
known as a DEMOCRAT looking for a freebie"No, otherwise known as
the common college graduate trying to find work and start an honest career in a
bum economy. Or are all Republicans born with a trust fund they can fall back on
until they manage to land a job?
I lived in salt lake and also in California as a single and broke. Cant say it
made that much difference. I preferred Utah at the time becauseit was slower
paced. I rarely ate out cause I couldn't afford it and Utah's wage
scale wasn't that good either. I am now married and living in Nebraska and
still broke. I think I did better single because it wad only one person and even
back then salt lake was very expensive to live in and that was a long time ago.
As Gay, Democrat, single ( for obvious reasons) and broke, I am moving to Salt
Lake City!Thank You Deseret News for informing us of this little secret!
After eating at several places in California I have come to the conclusion that
most resturants here lack any flavor what so ever and Californians look at you
weird when you ask where the nearest liquor store is. Also to say
cafe rio is a top rated Mexican resturant is laughable.
Young broke and single? otherwise known as a DEMOCRAT looking for a freebie!
No one likes Obama here, try Oregon or Washington......
Please, someone tell all the "young, broke and single" folks that they
will not like it here.It gets cold and snows. Alcohol is hard to
get. Everything is shut on Sundays. Lots of people have lots of guns and can
carry them almost anywhere. People are rumored to wear funny underwear. Gasp,
most people even vote REPUBLICAN!California has beautiful weather,
everyone is laid back, they have good welfare benefits. You will like it there
a lot better!
