Normal Person: Maybe you should pull your head out of your ass and stop living in fairfax!
Moron: Wow, you use your brain?!
Fuck Fairfax County and it's degradation of humanity.
Tim Kaine: Now we need to find a solution to the traffic problem in Northern Virginia. Any Ideas?
Richmond GOP fag: Over my dead body I'll allow funding for Fairfax County to build the Silver Line to Dulles and through Tysons Corner.
Northern Virginian Rep.: That's all right. Watch in November how Fairfax alone will give Obama Virginia. And in 2009, my region will throw you and the rest of George Allen's butt-buddies out of Richmond.
Very well educated, and not too much crime (especially compared to DC, with Southeast DC in particular). Racially diverse as well, and also quite liberal, though that has its positive and negative side. The Washington Metro, a subway system with stops in multiple parts of VA, DC and Maryland, is a wonderful asset (though those coming from New York shouldn't expect all too much). Temperatures can get into the 90s during the summer and dip below 20 in the winter, but the summers and winters are manageable.
Unfortunately, with the high income of this area comes pretty expensive costs of living. Some teachers in Fairfax County Public Schools (a very good, but not perfect school system) have to commute from outside the county's borders. And yes, traffic can be awful. The Metro should be used as much as possible.
Are there huge differences between Fairfax County and Montgomery County (Maryland), Arlington or Alexandria? No, not really. They're all places some people would dream to raise their kids. Anyone who's ready to trash another part of the DC suburbs should remember how fortunate those people are to be near a wonderful city and in a relatively safe environment.
"Oh, in Fairfax County."
"Not bad! Be thankful for all the resources you have there. I grew up in a place with a bad school system, lots of crime and not many opportunities."
