Should Coloradans put out the welcome mat to people who want to move here from other places?
Or should we roll it up and replace it with a "Do Not Disturb" sign?

Who gives a shit if you're native or a "transplant." Everyone realizes this is the year 2015, right? If people want to live in Colorado cuz it's beautiful or for our sports or for weed or whatever, who cares? The world doesn't revolve around you and your ego. Aren't there more important things to worry about in this state than weather or not someone moved here from California or Texas or wherever? Get over yourselves.
