Actions have consequences, and the town of Telluride, Colorado, learned just that. WorldNetDaily reported yesterday that Telluride is facing a backlash after it passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
One ski club of 175 people already has made plans to go elsewhere, another skier has threatened to sell his home there and another critic predicted the town soon would bow to Mecca.
"It's huge, unbelievable," said Telluride Mayor John Pryor. "Ski groups are canceling for the winter. Hundreds of people are bailing. The (town) website is flooded with people saying they're canceling their vacations here."
People in liberal bubbles, like Telluride, forget that people from the rest of the country don't all blow their bubbles from the same wand. And if your livelihood depends on tourists of all different kinds, it's best not to offend the other-wanded.
September 11, 2001, revealed the rift in our country. There are those who are serious about the security of our country, and there are those who aren't. Those who aren't are the ones who find comfort in grand, but meaningless, gestures against those who are. And now one of those liberal places has learned that their gestures can burst their happy bubble.
