Is it? I didn't know. Maybe cause, cities where you have mostly families with kids around need to behave a bit more??

Cities like santa monica and hollywood are more 20's to 30's so, they can be more wild and let loose....

You realize that Armenia was the first country to adopt Christianity as its official state religion?

Aside of the younger men, Armenian culture in the US is very family oriented.

Glendale has ALWAYS been a conservative town. Even BEFORE the large Armenian presence. Glendale was the west coast headquarters of the American Nazi party from the 1960's until the 1980's.

Why do you assume Armenians are conservative? The most overtly political I have seen Armenians is on the issue of the Armenian Genocide. Not sure they vote specifically for one political party or the other. At least not in the way the Irish did in the 1800's or African-Americans (or Jewish Americans) do in current times.

Yeah, I don't get the "Nazis = Conservatives" statement either.

And I'm curious as to WHY the OP thinks Glendale is so conservative.

It's represented by Democrats in the CA Assembly, Senate, and US Congress.

The Congressional district that Glendale is in (29th) went overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008 (68%).

Where is the evidence of Glendale being super-Conservative?

Glendale is not politically conservative at all! It's overwhelmingly Democrat. That being said, I see your point. Glendale is heavily Armenian, and while Armenians vote Democrat, they espouse a lot of traditional and what I would call very narrow minded beliefs about social issues

Nazism was clearly rooted in a far right extremist political philosophy (despite the very big misnomer of "socialist" in its name). Still, I did not intend to paint all conservatives as Nazis. But there is not question that the right wing of the political spectrum is what spawned that Nazi crap.

Nation of conservatives? WTF are you talking about? More like a nation of pragmatists.....neither truly liberal or conservative. And of course, the commander in chief that led us through that war was in fact the very liberal FDR. He would be tarred and feathered as a socialist in today's political climate.

Getting off topic, but the GOP delayed the US's entry into WW2 for quite a while.
