when you assume that Boulder is full of hippies. Because the real hippies are all in Nederland, Jamestown, and Gold Hill ;)

When you're not a fascist douchebag with a MacBook sitting at an overpriced coffee shop telling everyone how to live their lives and taking away their personal freedoms! Also, when you're not telling everyone how enlightened and tolerant you are while you live in a city full of rich, white liberal elitists that would move somewhere else if there were anyone living next door that wasn't a rich, white liberal elitist! Suck a cock Boulder! Shittiest town in America!

Generally, I'm not one to complain about how things "used to be." For me, it's more of a sadness of what my childhood home has become. Boulder "used to be" a place that attracted interesting people with interesting ideas and backgrounds. Sadly now it is little more than a playground for the uber rich that has evolved from "free love" social movement to a self-important, fascistic community for people who THINK they are interesting. I'm just sayin'

You're pretty good at whining -- Maybe it's time for you to come out of the closet.

We'll still love you in Boulder.
