    Liberals never learn. Seattle tried this with Boeing back in '09.

    I also think there was a South Carolina plant involved.

    I think Seattle demanded the federal government step in and not allow to move.

    Since that is your impression of WA ST....only you.

    The state is almost exactly divided red/blue.

    Europeans are socialists. Bernie Sanders is a socialist. People can be relative socialists and still be pretty rational and cooperative. Sawant blows way past that. She is militant Marxist whose goal is social unrest. She is not concerned with Seattle needing to raise taxes to fund things. She is not concerned with actually solving the city's growing homelessness problem. She is trying to agitate and inflame.

    Leave it to socialists to not learn from history. Might be why socialism keeps coming back like herpes.

    DA Mayor:

    What changed is listening to people in the last month,I heard people. It was time to take a pause, to hit reset, and to win back some of the confidence of the people.

    Bursts of sanity are always welcome.



    Note: I have been bitching about Seattle pretty much since the day I showed up here.

    Now you might have some idea why.
