Getting to be a lot of hate in the Nebraska forum period any more it seems. Mainly brought on by a few. It does get rather old and does not shed a good light on our state as a whole.


As for wanting to remove Omaha from the state. Ridiculous!! Omaha brings a lot to our state in my opinion. As do a lot of areas of this fine state, including western Nebraska as well.

I do not believe we can do with out any of the fine cities we have in our state, the specific regions of our state, or the varing of lifes in our state that make it what it is.

What I can't understand if you hate or feel like this state is depriving you of your rights, why stay?

Maybe because our jobs, families, and friends are here and despite being 2nd class citizens some of us would like to stay but just be able to enjoy the same rights you all have.

I believe you do have the same rights I have already.

You can marry your same sex partner? That's news to me.

How are conservatives hateful? If conservatives are so hateful why did the liberals use violence to protest the war at the 2008 Republic National Convention. How can you be anti war and use violence to protest.
Why are most if not all domestic terrorists are liberals? Can someone say William Ayers.

Or have no problem killing a baby(who has never sinned) in a partial birth abortion and try to save a guy on death role (who has sinned)? How is that not HATE! That is just plain WRONG.

So stop watching the media and letting them think for you.

As for comparing an Omaha-less Nebraska with the Dakotas, have you noticed that South Dakota imposes no state income tax and South Dakota’s property taxes are not much higher than those of Nebraska?

Better off, I say. Give em the boot!
South Dakota taxes food. So screw that. I bet they make more money that way. Even the unemployed and the lazy people still have to pay the tax.

Ok. The idea that only liberals or only conservatives are hateful is simply and totally moronic.

I am also really flipping sick of the oversimplified childish classification of people as liberal or conservative.

I have a very diverse group of friends. And none of them could be classified as "liberal" or "conservative." They are liberal or conservative on individual issues, but none are all or nothing (but that could be because they have free thought).

Both sides need to grow the hell up.

I agree Matt. And that's one thing I've always appreciated about this forum, actually.
Except for a very few people, most don't seem interested in those bigoted labels that partisan politicos like to throw around.

I didn't read all 12 pages of this post, because it would be pointless. But to answer the OP, Omaha is the best part of Nebraska, and its population subsidizes the rest of the state. If anything, western Nebraska should become part of Wyoming.
