Strategeryz0r: If you're happy living there, more power to you. But I live above you guys in Idaho, and watching how the mormons keep trying to influence our local politics is disgusting...


Perhaps you're aware that SE Idaho was first settled by Mormons, and has historically been a heavily-Mormon area, firmly within the "Mormon Corridor." IOW, your town and state were settled by Mormons and they've been a large component of the population and economy from the beginning, and still are. Perhaps you were not aware of that. Many people in Arizona don't know their towns were founded by Mormons, too. If you live in the Intermountain West, you're in Mormon territory. Interestingly, many transplants to the region don't quite get this fact, and worry about the Mormons "moving in." Ahem. They were here before just about everybody except for some Shoshones and Utes and the like. Now you know.

DSummZZZ: Strategeryz0r: Have you looked at the laws pertaining to Alcohol in the state of Utah... I don't give a shiat how big your houses are, or how cheap they might be, or how pleasant your scenery could be.

I will NEVER set foot in Salt Lake City EVER again.... You people in Utah are farking off your rocker.


Laws pertaining to alcohol? Watta maroon. Utah sells alcohol statewide. How many dry counties are there in the big ole' U. S. of A.?
The derp. It overwhelms.

/Not from Utah
//Do visit a lot


Continue reading to discover the arbitrary ways in which they restrict sales and tax paying business owners from serving their product a certain way. As I've also said multiple times, it's just one example of how the Utah government tries to legislate morality on a scale most other states wouldn't even consider.

Not to mention most of my hatred for Utah comes from the fact their main constituency(LDS rejects) go to other states and make a concerted effort to impose their own morality into law. Or at the very least, they are where I currently live. It's disgusting. If they want other states to be like Utah, then they should just go live in Utah.

fawlty: unchellmatt: 'm in a polyamorous relationship, and have been for going on 3.5 years. I love my GF absolutely, she loves me. She also loves her husband, who has become a great friend of mine, too. We've all talked about moving in together as a matter of fact (though the idea is often, only somewhat jokingly, batted around about me and him having our own place so there can be a "man cave"). Her husband also has a GF, and she's also a very near and dear friend of mine.

I guess you were born under a wandering star.

As opposed to other places in America, where people aren't materialistic? Like, say, Montana, where everyone meditates in the lotus position all day, won't step on an ant, and subsists from the meager offerings droppped into their rice bowls?
Pbbbbbbbbbbt.
You want materialistic? Go to the coasts where all the modest and humble liberals stab each other in the back as they scurry through their frantic rat race grubbing money 25 hours/day. Whatever. The whole world is purple. Red/blue is simplification for simpletons who need their information kept simple.


I never claimed any of those things. Maybe you need to lay off the caffeine. They may all be materialistic as fark. That's why I don't live in those places. The only time I usually get exposed to it is when I get down by Salt Lake. And if that's what the rest of the country looks like, I guess I'll stay right the fark where I'm at and let them all spend themselves into a frenzy.

Every time I hit the Ogden line, suddenly I see nothing but billboards for cosmetic surgery, huge houses, big fancy subdivisions, big fancy SUVs passing me all over the place, and ads for ways to make yourself even more conspicuously wealthy. I also noticed it in a lot of Mormons that i've known. Sorry to insult your favorite town.

What are you doing there? if you hate it so much, why don't you move? Are you a masochist?

Eh, for me, SLC is irrelevant. I like the canyon country, and there's no other place on Earth with the sheer density and intensity of incredible landscapes as Southern Utah. So I spend quite a bit of time there. I have never been hassled by anyone over anything in Utah. But I'm at peace with the world, and the assholes in Utah don't bother me any more than the assholes in California, or anywhere else for that matter. Assholes are assholes, no matter their particular brand of assholery, and they are everywhere.


Oh, the old Mormon apologist "If you don't like it, leave" derp. Ok, are you gonna get me a job in another state in a down economy? Or buy my house? Please. That is so much crap.

Southern Utah rocks, and frankly, Northern Utah rocks too... for the rocks. The people are ALL assholes. I know what you're saying about the landscape. You obviously have never really lived in Mormonville... Southern Utah ain't it.

Strategeryz0r: canyoneer: Have you ever looked at real estate in Salt Lake City? Polygamous or not, they build single family homes for huge families. It's common to find older homes (50 years old +) that look pretty normal from the street, but inside they're three, four, and five(!) thousand square feet. Huge full basements in a big footprint, walk-out basements, casitas, multiple baths, massive dining rooms, etcetera. On big lots, too. And many of them are very nice inside, all upgraded and sometimes even quite chic. But from the outside, they look like ordinary, low-slung ranch-style places. Some bungalows, too. Oh, and they like to plant trees. Many older neighborhoods in SLC have magnificent big old trees. Very pleasant shade in the summer.

And that's aside the point. Even though the majority of the populace disagrees with the way in which the LDS church tries to influence local policy. They keep trying to impose their own morality on the greater population. THAT is what is disgusting. I don't care who settled first, things are put to a vote for a reason. And if it's obvious the majority does not agree with your stance, then back the fark off or go live somewhere that agrees with your mindset(like Utah!). Like I said most of my area is populated by California transplants. We still have a very, very, large mormon population(to the point that they get excused from school to go to their daily cult meetings). But the reality is the majority of the population is not LDS, and as such the LDS folks need to realize this and stop trying to make this state Utah 2.0.

swangoatman: theotherwhitemeat: I have a husband and a wife (obviously not legally) and it has nothing to to with religion.

FYI: three to a bed = lousy nights sleep! We rotate as well.

So do "poly" married people ever do the multi-partner thing or is that just a "swingers" thing. I often wonder is it a sex party or a real life day to day crap shoot and emotions type deal?


By "poly" you need to clarify if you mean polygamy or polyamory.

Note that FLDS "polygamy" is more specifically "polygyny"- one man having multiple wives. FLDS would NEVER think of the concept of a woman having multiple husbands (polyandry), because they're subservient to men and could never be the central element of a household.

Polyamory do whatever partners they want, so yeah. But they don't care to have the term associated with swinging, wife-swapping, or group sex orgies. It could be something as simple as a guy has a job which splits his time between California and Texas. He's got a girlfriend in Califonia and one in Texas and they both know about each other and both are "ok" with that, rather than subscribing to the strict rule that there can only be one sexual relationship active at a time and anything else is illicit cheating. No freaky sex need occur, but neither is it ruled out.

They don't really do anything. They come up here because they hear it's a nice place to raise a family. The only 2 changes that have been pushed by Californians were the privatization of liquor sales, and an attempt at passing a medicinal marijuana bill. Other than that they haven't really done anything to try and make it California 2.0. it's still very much a red state here.

Your premise is wrong as it assumes people in relationships don't cheat.


That's only one way it's wrong.

He assumes that the "natural order" will always sort itself out according to the wishes of power-hungry sociopathic dickheads.

He assumes that no women would have anything to say about that social order, every one of them being either a.) submissive Stepford wives who would capitulate to it without a struggle, or b.) would be powerless and incapable of pushing back.

Or to widen the scope, he assumes that humans, male and female both, wouldn't create social orders that would keep things like this from happening. You know, kind of like has been the norm throughout much of recorded history.

Hell, he assumes that this "natural law" thing of his actually exists and there's no significant difference between Homo sapiens and Chimpanzees.

Amerika, Great Basin style. It isn't much different anywhere else. All of the money grubbing is driven by assholes in glass towers in Manhattan, anyway. It's The American Way Of Life.

SLC isn't my favorite town, although I would live there if I had to. It has liquor stores, internet connectivity, food, and running water. I'm much more fond of Jemez Springs, Lake City, and Fry Canyon. Too bad about Fry Canyon, though.

I've lived out here all my life (the Four Corners States and a short stint in Nevada), and I've been regaled with dark mutterings about the Mormon Menace the whole time.

Sure, they're pushy, and they manage to cling to some of their Mrs. Grundy rules in Utah, but those are eroding. They're being swamped, even in Utah, by the growing American demographic: Central American hispanics. This business about them "taking over" and whatnot is much ado about nothing.

Actually, historically, he is correct. When there has been polygamy in the past, it has happened exactly like he mentioned it. See the FLDS for an example. If there was an equal amount of women with many husbands, it would be fine, but it doesn't work out that way in practice. It also leads to inbreeding, incest, abuse and other bad stuff.

why do people keep saying this? it has never worked out that way. one man - many women, all is right with the world. one woman, many men - someone is getting farking stabbed. can it NEVER work? nah, but that shiat is rare.

men don't want other men banging their women.

i saw a special on tv awhile back about poly families. 2 were 1 man - many women. 1 was one woman - 2 men. in the 1 woman -2 men case, it was VERY obvious that one of the men was a biatch. She wanted kids, first guy didn't, so she went out and found another man, but the first guy was too much of a pussy to do anything about it so now he sits around caring for their kid while the other two fark. It was pretty obvious that the first guy was never getting any pussy again.

the 1 man - many women families seemed to be working well.

Or to widen the scope, he assumes that humans, male and female both, wouldn't create social orders that would keep things like this from happening. You know, kind of like has been the norm throughout much of recorded history.

Hell, he assumes that this "natural law" thing of his actually exists and there's no significant difference between Homo sapiens and Chimpanzees.

/Or, yeah, he might be trollin'.


The only significant difference is in the magnitude of the rocks we're capable of hurling at one another.

Tommy Moo: This is what the world would look like if left to natural law. A few rich guys at the top would have everything. Monogamy laws actually protect the interests of the majority of men. Without them, there would be incredible levels of violence, as the majority of men would have no access to women and therefore nothing better to do than spend all day eating and lifting weights and murdering the competition.


some guys would be ok with that

Xaneidolon: I, for one, support the PR initiative that brands Utah as a closed-minded shiathole. I just wish it were more widespread.

Don't visit Utah. It's a theocracy, a dry state, and the women are all prudes. And there's not a thing to be said for the scenery. Vacation (and move) elsewhere.


Skiing sucks too. Colorado is next door.

/We tried this when the population was less than 2 million...what is it now?

If that's what folks want, it should be legal. Just as long as the taxpayer doesn't have to support them.

And don't let anyone ever tell you that in the Spring you can ski in the morning, drive 15 miles, and play golf in the afternoon. It's absolutely not true in Utah.

If that's what the people of Utah want, who are we to judge?

Morpheses: canyoneer: Morpheses: Oh, so it's totally cool for them to try and establish a theocracy? You know, instead of following the Constitution of the country they supposedly belong to? Ok, now I know you're trolling. Must be why I favorited you.

I'll have to tell you in all sincerity that I find most of this to be rank paranoia. I've lived out here all my life (the Four Corners States and a short stint in Nevada), and I've been regaled with dark mutterings about the Mormon Menace the whole time. So far, the Mormons have still not managed to "establish a theocracy," probably because they are bound by the same Constitution as the rest of us. Sure, they're pushy, and they manage to cling to some of their Mrs. Grundy rules in Utah, but those are eroding. They're being swamped, even in Utah, by the growing American demographic: Central American hispanics. This business about them "taking over" and whatnot is much ado about nothing.

I sincerely hope you're right...

Oh, wait... there's someone at the door. Two someones. Holding some damn book again...


There are 2 responses to this that are appropriate.

1) Answer the door with your TV blaring hardcore pornography(preferably with the TV in eye shot of the door). Ensure you are dressed in nothing but a rob, and have an appropriately large erection. The sight of a man's raging boner, and women in various sexual positions will be burned into their retinas for the rest of their lives. Also, word travels fast among the LDS circles. They wont come back.

2) Invite them in your house, and calmly break down the many inconsistencies with their chosen religion. Until you have witnessed 2 previously cheery, wide eyed, LDS missionaries decry you as an agent of satan and storm out of your house crying their eyes out... You haven't lived.

i just answer the door holding my Satanic Bible and tell them that they can tell me all about their religion if I can tell them all about mine.

/yes LaVey was a charlatan but you can't beat the sheer power of holding a copy of his book when religious folks pester you.

I blame gays. You see, there are significantly more gay men than there are lesbians. Every time a gay man pairs up, it leads to a shortage for men to pair with women. This inevitably leads to a surplus of woman. And the only solution to this overabundance of women is to marry them all off to the same man.

An entire religion that exists merely to provide justification for a man to bang more than one woman at a time.

Not entirely true. You just have to get to know a few fallen Mormons. There's more hypocrites (aka rational people who like to party, but I digress) out there than you think. That aside, the laws reminds me of Ohio c.1985 (hard liquor can only be purchased at state stores or at bars, etc.), save for the 21 drinking age (it was 19 in Ohio back then), for which you can blame Elizabeth Dole (not from Utah) and all the know-nothing Neo-Prohibitionists (both Liberals and Conservatives) who think that all the world's problems can be solved if we just ban booze again.
