Things City Folk Don’t Think Wyomingites Have
Vice President Kamala Harris doesn't think Wyomingites have access to copiers.
“I don’t think that we should underestimate what that could mean, because, in some people’s mind, that means, ‘well, you’re gonna have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove that you are who you are,’” Harris said. “There are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t — there’s no Kinko’s, there’s no Office Max near them. People have to understand that when we’re talking about voter ID laws, be clear about who you have in mind and what would be required of them to prove who they are. Of course, people have to prove who they are, but not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are.”
In yesterday's article, which you can read at this link, I proved that we do, in fact, have photocopiers.
I've lived in Wyoming for about 11 years now and I am continually astounded by how many things big city folks think we don't have out here, yet we do.
Yes, we have access to top-notch education, from grade school up to college, and even more importantly we have access to technical schools so we can land those higher paying skilled jobs that college kids can't seem to get.
Yes, we have access to the internet and cell phones. There might be a few spots in the state that does not have cell services but those are small areas and no one is out there, so we don't care.
Yes, we have access to art and culture. In fact, many artists and writers as well as musicians move out here to work because Wyoming inspires them.
Here are some things big cities have that Wyomingites don't want.
Wyoming doesn't have a high crime rate like the big cities do.
The only riot we had was back in the eighteen hundreds.
We don't have people pooping on our sidewalks.
A Wyoming traffic jam means waiting for the herd to cross the road.
We don't have long lines in Wyoming. But when there is a line it means we can visit with our neighbors while we wait.
We don't have a state income tax.
We don't have high taxes.
We do have a low cost of living.
We don't have smog.
We don't have to pay $350 a month to park our car.
Yeah - we really are deprived out here. Oh gosh, please come rescue us.
