If you could launch a boycott against another state, which would would it be, and why?

n

Susan Kruithof: Ohio, for sure. What right does it have to have so damned many urban centers? Cleveland, Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo and Sandusky. And it has two kick-ass amusement parks. Who the F do they think they are? Spread the wealth: Nebraska needs something, anything, for Christ’s sake.

n

n

Jennifer Nixon: I would totally boycott Vermont or New Hampshire. They just sit there, being boring, way off in the East. Those states need to be stirred up a bit!

n

n

Derek Carlisle: Texas! That state should never be able to have a presidential nominee, kind of like how Japan wasn’t allowed to have a military after World War II.

n

Jayne Pedersen: Texas, you jerk! You keep teasing me with your cowboy boots! I love them, want them and my feet do not. Stop making them look so damned cool!

n

n

Brandon Burt: The state of affairs that allows people to delude themselves into thinking they are rational and compassionate beings while acting out of hate, fear and bigotry. How do I boycott that?

n

n

Bryan Bale: Let’s boycott Alaska. Better yet, let’s invade them and take their oil! The pit bulls will welcome us as liberators!

n

n

Jamie Gadette: No, I wouldn’t, because boycotting an entire state is ridiculous and counterproductive. Responding to ignorant legislation with ignorant stereotypes hardly approximates progress.

n

n

Nick Clark: Idaho. It’s just trying to steal our thunder.

n

Cesar Guzman: Utah, definitely. I can’t believe the LDS Church helped pass proposition h8te! One more thing: Utah was won by McCain.

n

n

Derek Jones: Colorado. Evangelical megachurches and their repressed congregations freak me out more than most Mormons.

n

n

Holly Mullen: Idaho, because our hapless neighbor to the north is shaped like a pork chop.

n

n

Annie Quan: Kansas. Not only are their liquor laws worse than ours (I was told on a flight through Kansas they couldn’t serve alcohol during a certain time because that particular county was dry—including its airspace), it banned gay marriage by 70 percent. So, not only are gays not welcome, they can’t even get a drink!
