Rooster Redux: You are absolutely correct.
YOU CANNOT HAVE A SANE CONVERSATION WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE IGNORANT, STUPID BY CHOICE, AND IN SOME CASES, PURELY EVIL.
Just leave. Take your companies and employees to a state where they will be free from these marxist-wannabes and delusional Democrats.
I left Maryland long ago. The best thing I ever did. Look at it now, the shithole of the Middle Atlantic states, led by Marxist O’Malley, powermad Miller, and with far-left congressthings like Van Hollen, Steny Hoyer (a legend in his own mind), Mikulski, small in physical height (nothing against it), but small in mind and intelligence.
Like the So. Vietnamese and Cambodians did, “VOTE WITH YOUR FEET”, and never look back until your state is cleaned up (not in my lifetime).
like my wife, she moved out of MA and moved here
St Augustine north east FL
and she said it was the best move she ever did.
She now knows her vote counts, she has so much freedom, no emissions on cars, no inspections, low taxes, no state tax, have fires in back yards etc
When she went back she hated it, she hated the north and not because of just the weather but all of it, the bad drivers, high taxes, bad roads, corruption, anti everything marriage, guns etc
Like you said, vote with your feet and get of of the north east.
I’ll add , take your hard earned money and stop giving it to the socialist state
Get out as soon as you can
