Seattle used to be committing slow suicide. The word “slow” no longer applies. Decline accelerates.

Sometimes I wonder how Seattle manages.  Their Radical Leftist government, elected by the people of Seattle, continues to engage in activities that are making the city unlivable.  Let's start with Cal Anderson Park, on Capitol Hill.  During the summer, riots over the death of a black man in Minneapolis led to the takeover and destruction …

Interesting…Very Interesting…World Health Organization comes out Against Lockdowns to “fight Coronavirus”
