It took me a while, but I eventually got used to Midland’s stink.  (I think the scent receptors in my nose just shut off.)  Every once in a while though, Dow farts out a big one and even the people that have lived here their entire lives complain about it.

Oakland. Conservative haven, more or less.

Oakland smells funny

It smells like Bellum omnium contra omnes, but instead of humanity, it’s a bunch of degenerate/mentally crippled kids who can’t formulate a cohesive opinion on anything, much like their parents.

Exactly what I was going to say.

I hate it when I can’t detect sarcasm. XD

Ah.  Never been there myself.  Though I think I may have driven through it once or twice.  But you should drop by Midland some time.  During election season I like to drive around and try to find signs for non-Republicans.  Last cycle was a high.  I found 12!

I don’t think you’d last very long in Oakland. Between the Conservative street press gangs defacing democrats with hastily constructed billboards, and the roaming caravans of lunatic evangelicals, you’d end up best as tofu. However, Royal Oak is as liberal as any city can get. Young populace with a vibrant foreign and atheist community. Hell, you can see gays going about their business care-free, where as in Birmingham you’d get flogged for being open about it.

What’s funny about Midland is that for all the conservatives and churches there are a surprising number of non-religious and skeptical types.  Probably because of Dow and all the engineers and whatnot it attracts.

that’s positive to hear. However, if you want an effective deterrent against Conservatives, it never hurts to pack this on your Ipod:

Speaking of Oakland . . . are you referring to Oakland County? Oakland Charter Township? I’m not sure if it’s a town proper.

I used to live not too far from there - I went to high school in Armada. Speaking of conservative towns. But Oakland county is pretty big and diverse, and it has all sorts. Not to mention an unusually large number of lakes.

I still have friends in that area. Oakland County, that is.

Yamantaka Eye is basically insane.  Though greatly entertaining and endlessly creative, in a horrifying sort of way. LOL

If you want, I can find you some that “worse” stuff I mentioned.  cheese

County, that is. Royal Oak is perhaps the most liberal of a city as you’ll get within that small area.
