Not all states are created equal

I didn't snopes this but it's funny enough to read anyway:

http://www.creativeminorityreport.com/2013/02/the-greatest-constituent-letter-ever.html


The Reverend Audette Fulbright, newly appointed Unitarian-Universalist ministress in Cheyenne Wyoming decided to write a letter to Hans Hunt, State Representative:

Dear Representative,

I hope you are taking care of yourself during this busy session. I know it is a challenging, compressed time.

I am writing to express my grave concern about House Bill 105. Ample evidence has shown that schools and guns do not mix, and in particular, guns in the hands of amateurs/non-professionals is extremely dangerous, especially in any highly-charged situation. to expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow.

My husband and I moved to Wyoming not too long ago. We believed it was a good place to raise children. With the recent and reactive expansion of gun laws and the profoundly serious dangers of fracking, we find we are seriously reconsidering our decision, which is wrenching to all of us. However, the safety of our family must come first. We are waiting to see what the legislature does this session. I know of other new-to-Wyoming families in similar contemplation. Your choices matter. It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking.

sincerely,

Rev. Audette Fulbright

Hunt’s response minced no words:

Rev. Fulbright,

I’ll be blunt. If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage. I don’t expect a “mass exodus” from our state just because we’re standing up for our rights. As to your comments on fracking, I would point out that you’re basing your statement on “dangers” that have not been scientifically founded or proved as of yet.

It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking. We are, and will continue to be, a state which stands a head above the rest in terms of economic security. Our ability to do that is, in large part, to our “live and let live” mentality when it comes to allowing economic development, and limiting government oversight. So, to conclude, if you’re so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.

Sincerely,

Hans Hunt

Representative Hans Hunt

House District 02

Hans Hunt is all of 24. Keep your eye on this gentleman, I think we will be hearing more from him.

What's so funny? Hans Hunt seems like a humorless git.

You should write and tell him that. Better yet, go to Wyoming and tell him what you think. He seems to have no problem saying what's on his mind.

Been to Wyoming. Beautiful state. Hans Hunt is still a humorless partisan git. We need less Hans Hunts, and I have no interest in writing to a state rep in another state.

Nevertheless, what was so funny?

Also love the state, and the people there. Take the article for it for what it's worth to you, maybe even discuss the content if you like.

Why? So, we have a bunch of uncouth morons in political power? Thanks, but I'll pass.

What did he write in that letter that is evidence that he is uncouth or moronic?  I see nothing.  Are you reading a different letter?

It isn't what you say but how you say it. Hunt could have written in a way that explains or educates people such as Ms. Albright instead of saying go eff yourself.

Funny is how we hear on this site how kids and young adults these days have no respect for anything and everything and then applaud this young man's lack of respect for Ms. Albright raising her concerns.

He should find humor in the writers non-humorous letter?

Blunt and rude I would agree. Uncouth, not so much. Duly noted what standards you hold people to. Don't forget the appropriate adjectives to describe the author of the original letter (e.g. arrogant, threatening...).

So apply that concern for lack of respect to the author of the original letter.....if you can do that, then you're at least being consistent.

The letter from the constituent does not even remotely approximate the tone of Hans Hunt's letter. Not even the same sport let alone the same ballpark.

If you cannot hear the difference in the tone of the two letters I cannot help you. Does the author of the first letter directly state or even imply that Hunt is a dick? I cannot find it.

But Hunt makes no bones about saying Ms. Fulbright is a dick for bringing up her concerns. I do not disagree with the sentiments at all, but how he says it.
post #15 of 50

I read that he was offering helpful alternatives to her situation.

I write a lot of notes to a lot of pols.  I much prefer his response to the flowery, polished turd crap I get from some of mine.

Even more, she opened herself up to frank debate.  My letters always consist of one line.

"I expect you to vote no on Bill 123"  Nothing more.
