We don't call it Saudi Aurora because there might be some Muslims living there.  That term predates the WoT by a lot of years.

There are very few Muslims in Aurora. It was referred to as Saudi Aurora back in the 80's due to the lack of trees. An aggressive tree planting program has resolved that issue and I haven't heard "Saudi Aurora" in many years.

Traditionally, yes. There have been left-leaning shooters, too (Oswald, etc). But when bombmaking was en vogue in the US, it was usually the communists or anarchists bombing conservative institutions.

Then there was Kaczynski, who of all things, was a Luddite.

I considered that possibility.  I occassionally experiment with "sugar" (potassium nitrate+ sucrose) rockets, but have also tried gunpowder versions.  I reckon there's a fair chance that if the fire department or cops found one of my homemade rocket engines they might panic over "pipe bombs" and throw me in the slam.

I generally make sure that I use up all my propellant on the same day I make it, to remove long-term hazards.  Cops would still probably get excited at finding my stash of milled sugar, charcoal and KNO3.

  as a refugee of highlands ranch, i can tell you they are there. they are just as nuts, only generally with far better impulse control. they don't have to make pipe bombs on the kitchen table, they can afford to construct custom hidden rooms to house their collections of weaponry,things like vietnam era mortars and classic vintage colt m16's in glass cases on display along with their 1st edition copies of the 'turner diaries' and the 'left behind' series.

I was thinking more along the lines of the Galleanist bombings of 1919-1920, although the Weathermen certainly qualify. The Klan exists at that odd border of being ultra-conservative but also a democratic organization for much of its history.

For all the wonder about the Christian Right, the makeup of the Democratic party pre-Wallace makes even less sense. I have no idea what northeastern Protestant busybodies, New York Jews, and southern white supremacists saw in each other.

I used to know a guy who lived in Aurora Colorado. I was emotionally supporting him (I wasn't giving the psychopath any cash) as he was preparing to move to Realto or whatever the hell he was heading too live with his parents because he lost his job at Taco Bell. All the time he was crying "I DON'T WANNA MOVE TO CALIFORNIA, I WANNA STAY HERE THIS IS PRETTY I GOT SNOW ON MY BIRTHDAY!"
But I had to remind him each time. You can't live there without a job your parents have a home for you you need to quit crying over Aurora and move forward. He was a major vegan asshole who complained about everything and still does to this day when I see him in some forums.
