My first thought is that this guy mustve been dropped off with no advance warning (seriously, roads and weather are you issue? its freaking Colorado!). I will; however, agree with him that the people are difficult to adjust to. Seems everyone has anger and pride issues and are quick to get upset and react with rage. Something as simple as getting into the next lane will prompt someone to speed up so they can get to there destination .12 seconds faster. With that, I will also give him the 'crappy drivers' point.

I will also cede his 'sports fanatics' point. Bronco fans are insufferable. I'm fine with people being passionate towards the home team; however, as a fan of a different team, its nearly impossible to watch a game at a bar without Bronco fans being douchebags and ruining it.

Bottom line: This guy needs to move.

Sounds like this is just a hateful person in general. I want to hear where this magical place that has better scenery than Colorado. He needs to go there. We all have choices. Stop bitching and do something about it.

The guy that wrote this is obviously a goat humping Muslim. Just look at the clues he complains about white people AKA Christians. He complains about racism and says especially if you are from the Middle East and a foreign country. Having had the fortune of living in a Middle Eastern hell hole called Iraq for a year where most of the landscape is desolate desert how does this guy complain about the landscape in CO? Also people in Colorado are intolerant compared to what? In Iraq if they don't like you they pull out an AK-47 or RPG and try to kill you. That guy needs to just leave Colorado leave this country and go back to whatever Muslim country he is from! Once there he can chant Death to America and Allah Ackbar all he wants.

We may be relentless Bronco fans, but at least we have pride. I've lived in "Colorful Colorado" for 32 years and have to say traffic didn't used to be as bad as it is now.. California and Texas, just own it already. We may sit around and high ald

It doesn't matter if you were born on the steps of the Capitol or moved here last week from Key West don't think you can be rude because you are so intense and extreme and entitled...because that pervasive attitude on the trails, roads and elsewhere does add a dimension of suck.

I've lived in many states and a foreign country and will say that Colorado drivers come up with the most unique ways of utilizing the road.. I've seen people turn left from a right lane in front of other lanes or vice versa. I've seen a lady stop on Arapahoe under the 1-25 bridge to answer her cell phone. I've seen a driver drive on the center line down Broadway. U-turns on busy 4 lane roads not on an intersection (those are bad enough). Driving on the sidewalk in order to overtake a person trying to turn right. I'm confident many laws of physics have been broken on Colorado roads. This is definitely worthy of scientific study. In the mean time, buckle up, prefill the accident reports and get your plot ready.

It's hard to take someone seriously who doesn't know how to spell the words ridiculous and their, doesn't know the difference between you're and your, or that the word don't contains an apostrophe, and I could go on. I'd suggest this person quit making videos, and get out of his parents basement once in a while to see how beautiful this state really is and how much there is to do.

If you want a harsh winter and horrible crime go to Illinois. It hardly ever snows here. We have the most sunny days in this state. This guy must have been confused about where he was living for 12 years.

Katie Geisler

Wow! There's an opinion for sure... please post this on every single other state's sites. Maybe that will convince people to not move here! :)

He is right. I am prejudiced ... against whiney, sniveling boors who apparently grew up under a rock judging from his naive outlook and who apparently grew up in a state that did not teach English in school.

Mikey Roberts doesn't "write" anything. He just acts as a gossip feed and still desperately holding out for that call from TMZ although given his body of "work," he does appear to have the maturity of an angst-ridden teen suffering through a major existential crisis.

Virgil Dunn

Nope. You just suck at driving and are too afraid to live amongst "poor" people.

or whiny miserable EDM phags who have nothing else to do during daylight hours but to piss and moan about others' poor grammar and shitty outlook on life

I can understand a couple of his points. My real question is why does he still live in Colorado if he hates it so much?

I was here before everyone moved in. It was prosperous, clean and had its own way of doing things that many of us miss greatly. Don't think that people moving in nessicarily makes it better, cause in many ways it does NOT!

I have a idea if you don't like colorado MOVE AWAY! If all these shit heads would move back to whatever shit state they came from life and traffic would be better for the people who enjoy the out doors. I heard the south is beautiful and not racist at all! Lol

Because nowadays Westword is the place for people with poor grammar and a shitty outlook on life these days.

Not true. I come from California and I must say that Colorado drivers drive way too slow. I understand not wanting to speed, but there is no reason to drive 5 mph under the limit unless it's snowing or raining. Also, the act of properly merging is lost on many.

How often do you cry about people moving here? Once a day? Twice?

Really? How was Larimer Square doing not too long ago? You ever wonder what prompted the clean-up as well as the building of the Mall?
