The trouble is, if you move to the Dakotas you may have to really work. Who needs that when "our" government is so generous?

I thought that sub-forum was mainly supposed to be comedy?
They really should put a warning sticker on it.

The suspension of common sense required to take it seriously (snicker) was more than I could hack.

I got whacked because I said that I don't see it happening, based partially on the fact that it didn't happen in the thirties, when the society was a bit closer to that "pioneer" mentality, and given the fact that people aren't fleeing the cities now and in fact are clinging to them. If "something" happens (whatever you want to call it) there will still be politicians, politicians will play to their greatest concentrations of voters. (That is why there were "soup kitchens" and such in the CITIES in the '30s) The frogs will sit in the pans (the cities) as the heat is turned up, expecting Government to solve their problems rather than take responsibility for themselves.

I just don't see people who won't move to where there is work now suddenly throwing the family in the car to go live in a tent in the woods. But I was outvoted in that forum by the experts.
The criminals who are robbing and killing people for money in the cities almost never leave the cities to come out in the countryside now to do their deeds. I sure can't see them doing it when they have to walk instead of drive.

Cities are a "target rich" environment for criminals AND politicians.

Things that make you go "Hmmmm"
