Are people within their rights to be upset that Reddit is changing their policies? Sure. But Reddit is also within their rights to do as they wish with the soapbox that they own, and let others stand on. Just remember, you have the right to be offended. You do not, however, have the right to *not* be offended.

Yeah Vermont is very odd in that regard. Vermont used to be a very reliable conservative state, and would constantly vote republican in the presidential elections up until a few decades ago. Due to our culture of being comfortable around guns though, there isn't really much of a push to restrict them, despite the state becoming far more liberal.

There is an even bigger problem with banning something into oblivion- The government gets used to that tax money, and once that item actually goes away, you are left with designated spending that needs to be funded (because we know the option of "end that particular spending" is never addressed). So now taxes get raised on something else instead.

You can't go home again, unless you set $HOME.
