What I get tired of is people, whether "home-grown" or transplants to Colorado, who remain total ignoramuses about the state that is their home. They don't bother to learn anything about the state's ecology and environment (or what their presence, lifestyles, or activities may be doing to it). They don't bother to learn any of the state's colorful history or heritage, nor do anything constructive to appreciate it or preserve it. They have little respect for the previous generations of Coloradans who sacrificed much to establish the many communities in the state, and they do little to cherish and protect the character of those communities. In short, what they want is to take from the place and not ever give anything back, with no respect for the past and no concern for the future. Colorado does not need one more person like that, native or otherwise--not now, not ever.

Thank you, I appreciate it. I was born in California, and we get so much migration in and out that it's kind of a running joke. We even have names for some of them (i.e., Zonies for people from AZ, who flock to San Diego in the summer). It's all in fun, the people here are friendly and laid back, and they are one of the reasons I'm hesitating to move. The funny thing is, very few of the incoming are from Colorado. That has to tell you something...

Anyway I think that people with negative attitudes will tend to find more of the same wherever they go. Like attracts like.
