I never watched The Gilmore Girls or any of the shows that Dax listed, so I couldn't call him at all out there reality or lack of it. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh butt Pittsburgh really didn't have a downtown area but families lived in and in fact still doesn't. I think some young hipsters are moving downtown certainly KMI could tell us better but even though Pittsburgh was depressed when I was in dental school it had great museums and theaters because of the money that the big industrial families had built. So there was access to theater and museums and the food was very good there because I ethnic people love good food.

When I agreed to move to Chicago I told my husband to be that there is no way I would live in the suburbs there because we were both going to be having careers downtown and the suburbs in my opinion were rather conservative compared to the city which was very liberal. Plus I wanted to do all the things that downtown offered the theaters and museums the art shows and everything plus I really do like my restaurants and I have like an occasional very high in place but I also value inexpensive ethnic food. Chicago is a place of neighborhoods and I loved our neighborhood it was kind of like a small town and the neighbors knew one another and watched out for one another and if somebody seedy came into the neighborhood people would call one another.. the neighborhood was extremely mixed with blacks whites case Asians everybody living together and I never felt that anybody was prejudiced against anybody else and people mixed in socially all the time.

Where we live now is a small town but since it is adjacent to Scottsdale you can go to Scottsdale for fun down here and some shows Etc. However the whole state of Arizona is much more conservative and the food in the valley isn't even as good as Pittsburgh let alone Chicago. We thought of moving out of here a couple years ago I was thinking of Tucson because it is more liberal but since I am involved with a cat shelter i am ok staying here. But I have to say I do all my shopping and we go into Scottsdale to eat a hundred percent of the time. We barely know the neighbors here we have had a drink with one or the other but they're mostly conservative and I really don't feel comfortable with them nor do I want to be friends with them.

TGIr, I know what you mean about people coming to a small town especially small towns outside of big cities where the big city people come and talk down to the people who live there year-round. It's different here though winter snow birds don't tend to do that because the people here have plenty of money and exact a lot of the snowbirds don't. The big buck people come into Scottsdale and do the car shows and the golf tournament spot they never come to Fountain Hills. And I really noticed but none of them seem to be snobby with a downtown Scottsdale shopkeepers or anything. As far as small towns go I never had an urge to go outside of Chicago when I live there except to get on a plane and go somewhere altogether different. I have no urge to drive to some more areas and look at Kyle's or any other thing or sit on a horse I just am not interested in that type of thing at all. We chose to live where we do because of a fabulous views and natural beauty and yet we are only 15 minutes from the edge of Scottsdale and 25 - what would be considered really good dining if I wasn't such a Chicago dining snob.

All of Pittsburgh is kind of weird because of the hills and the valleys and when we would visit there I would get my fill of trees and Riverside cetera which I kind of miss but not enough to move back.

I meant to say all of Pittsburgh is kind of rural, not weird. It does have its own unique character and flavor.

Regarding the City vs. Small-town thing I watched election night as the cities went blue and all the rural areas and distance suburbs went red and voted for Trump. That is enough to tell me I don't want to live in any of them because certainly the racist and homophobic index is far higher than it is in cities. Although I know that college cities tend to be much more liberal for instance Austin is the only city in Texas that actually votes blue
Due to the influence of the college there.

Tgir, I am quite aware of the poverty in the rural areas. It's not dissimilar to what is going on in West Virginia with the coal mining. Several years ago I strongly recommended a book to you all it was called methland and it was excellent in educating people as to why there were so many rural communities with serious drug issues. I strongly recommend everyone read it.

What I don't understand is why we're all people all seem to be so racist and afraid of other cultures. And what do they think the Republican party will do for them when it has done nothing but support the big Industries which has destroyed their farms
And your other ways of making a living. That is what totally flummoxes me. It's like their hatred of other people of different colors are races supersedes their logic or any common sense they may have to really think about exactly why they're in the boat that they are in

If they were not for a cyst what was it about Donald Trump that they found so appealing because like I said looking at the board the cities were blue and all the whole areas voted for him. So exactly why did they vote for him when the Republican party has done nothing but promote big business who takes their jobs away.

But they have not voted Democrat maybe ever. If you look at the election map after election map it's been the cities and the suburbs that carried Obama and any other Democrat not the rural areas.

The women at my gym are mostly cunts, and I do not hold them up as an example for anybody

And you can't tell me an immigrant has ever taken a white person's job away because these jobs go unfilled unless an immigrant takes them. Oldest city nursing home assistant jobs are immigrant Filipinos or Mexicans. White people would rather collect welfare than take these jobs.

Good example right here Sheriff Joe got rid of most of the illegal aliens so now you have to pay a lot more and wait a lot longer if you want work done in the garden or Roofing done and there's still no white people doing it because it's a shitty job in the heat here.

I don't think the vast majority of immigrants today are white people although I would say that almost everyone on this board had an immigrant for an ancestor.

None of my health care providers are Caucasian except for my prosthodontist and he is soon to be my ex dentist because he is such a right wing asshole. Primary care physician and internist is an Indian woman and my glaucoma specialist is Chinese. My regular eye doctor is Indian my best oral surgeon is Middle Eastern. My GI doctor is an Israeli Jew. These people are in the positions they're in because they were smarter or worked harder than Caucasian or black students. When I was teaching at the University of Illinois and Northwestern The Immigrant students or the children of immigrants worked much harder than the people who were here for Generations whether they were black or white. There were no generations of Indians and Chinese usually so almost all of the ethnic students were immigrants or their parents were.
You have the lower class immigrants you are not educated who do so much but work and then the educated ones who are the professionals.

No matter what you say about the real people just look at the elections time after time they vote Republican. And they are voting for people that take away their jobs and would screw them in a minute as far as any kind of government assistance. If they have any brains at all why would they do that except for the fact that they would rather screw themselves then let somebody else get help in particular a person who is any color at all. In addition it is very hard to be gay in a small town or rural area. People who are in the closet or they are not accepted in the community. I know a lot of them work hard but I can't stand that culture. They're heavy into Christianity but not very Jesus like.

I am sure the women and my gym voted for Trump but many of them didn't bother to vote at all because they're too self-absorbed. I have never seen in 10 years a trump bumper sticker on a Mercedes or a Porsche or Alexis or any other luxury car. But I see them on half the beat-up pickup that I see. And as many people that winter here with money that voted for Trump there are more that have a trailer for thewinter that voted for Trump.

Rising Lee there were no political signs in any of the Yards and not only my neighborhood but the entire time that I should see other than an occasional Sheriff Joe sign.

That should have been surprisingly there were no political signs in the yard either in my neighborhood you're in the area that I drive through which are pretty much the entire town because I'm going to the cat shelter and doing other business in town. Like I said there were a few Sheriff Joe signs butt obviously that wasn't the majority since he lost his ass thank God for small favors

Not all the homes are that expensive here. I live on the country club side of the main Boulevard but not in the club if prices here go for a million minimum 2 over the sky however the other side of town has many homes in the half a million range and then there are neighborhoods where you can pick up a small home on a small lot for under 200,000. You can't get anything in Scottsdale accept a trailer for under 200. We are half an hour north of an area called Mesa Arizona which is actually a city of 400,000 and the homes there are quite a bit less expensive but with a population that hi there is a wide range. I take my classes at the Mesa Arts Center and if you look at that on the Internet is a wonderful place and there are some pretty good performances. Mesa also has a huge population of Mormons hands the restaurant stand to be not so fancy and there's not a lot of liquor served.

I was driving around one of the less expensive neighborhoods because someone had posted a lost cat and we do that sometime or look for someone's lost dog as well and I was surprised that I did not see any Trump signs but like I said I did see some Sheriff Joe signs which I was very tempted to deface.

I find all this dialogue interesting because I had never heard of The Gilmore Girls and I mean never ever heard of it. So I looked it up and I see it was a show that was in the past and now there is some kind of recap on Netflix or something. I guess if I had heard of it I forgot about it or didn't try it because it is listed as a comedy and there are basically no comedies that I ever liked I can count on one hand the comedies I like to maybe not make it to 5 and they would have been Ally McBeal which I know sounds nauseating, I don't know how I ever watched it. I used to like Scrubs in addition to. I used to like Sex In The City the original ones but grew tired of that in the movies were just horrendous and sad in a way because these women all were too old to be acting like they were. I tried Parks and Recreation and found nothing funny or entertaining about it and it is reviewed very well and many people like it. I love the humor in Saul, or Fargp, but these are sort of black humour Sidelines that really are not the focus of the show. So what exactly was this show was it like some kind of soap opera That was supposed to be funny or what?

I am looking for shows to watch on demand or on Netflix because we are going to run out of them over the break here and some of the shows like I witness were limited runs.

Well I didn't like Cary on The Good Wife, and I don't particularly care for the actor.

Hard to believe that anyone missed out on Sex in the City. It was quite the thing in its time. But I was getting sort of tired of it toward the end. I saw one of the movies and it was observed in terrible and I understand the other one or two if there were two was even worse. Having seen it when I did I wouldn't be watch it and I'm not sure I would even recommend watching it now because it really was something set in a certain period of time with certain attitudes.
