Chicago is the windy city, Wyoming is the Windy State.
Has many, many natural resources (only Texas produces more oil) and has some of, if not the largest coal mines in the world, not many people, but generally accepting of others, so long as they don't butt into other people's lives. Often said to hold true to the Constitution (that all men are created equal), and where liberals are generally looked down upon (especially when liberal groups try to stuff laws down our throats, just look up a few things from the Matthew Shephard Case, the media and many gay rights activist groups tried to force new laws on us and make us into hicks), fairly Conservative (we may have a Democrat for a Governor, but he did not approve of any of the Democratic Candidates), the people of Southern Wyoming don't really like the Greenies (Coloradans) too much, especially during "border wars" between Universities of the 2 states.
The reason that Wyoming is so windy is because Montana blows and Colorado sucks.
Texas lost their Cowboy way, so it's down to Wyoming now.
Cowboy Up. (Means, in short, to toughen up for whatever comes your way).
