Joe Guarino goin' Hollywood

Some readers may be old enough to remember way back in the Fall of 2000, when many of Hollywood's dimmer luminaries were threatening to leave the country if George Bush were elected.

Others may remember Alexander threatening to move to Australia after his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Well, similarly childish Hollywood sentiments are now afflicting local conservative blogger Joe Gaurino.

Following the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad election day that conservative city council candidates had last month, Joe is telling folks to get out of Greensboro while the gettin' is good.
People are able to vote with their feet. And as far as I am concerned, they should be encouraged to do so-- to consider getting out.

Greensboro is a slowly sinking ship; and it might be best to find a life boat.
And earlier
...Greensboro residents concerned about the taxes they will be paying should justifiably look at alternatives-- especially in view of the lopsided tax/bond/spend majority the city's voters just elected. At some point, good people must decide whether they will allow themselves to continue to be exploited; or whether they will do what they need to do to protect their own property and income.
It's pleasant to imagine how much nicer Greensboro would be if Joe and his C4GC friends did up and leave. Heck, I'd offer to help them pack.

My prediction, however, is that when their pity party is done, Joe and his conservative cabal will show themselves to be like Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, and the fictional Alexander in one additional way--they'll suck it up and stay.
