Earlier this year Sinclair broadcasting wrote an article that Seattle is dying. That article was nothing but a huge lie and I said so at the time.

When our city counsel raised minimum wage to 15 dollars an hour the right went nuts saying it would destroy the city. That was another big lie.

Moody's has upgraded Washington state's credit rating to AAA for the first time ever.

Raising the minimum wage and responsible liberal economics have turned Washington and Seattle into a powerhouse.

Conservatives can lie all they want about Washington and Seattle but we are reaping the benefits of liberal responsible economics. While you red states are falling apart and bankrupt.

The OP doesn't understand what liberal means.
Also, the condition of an area involves more than credit ratings.
You have over 12k homeless. Hundreds of people dying from drug OD and crime is going up.
Of course, you are a leftist hack so you probably get off on shit like that.

Yes, Democrat run cities are rotting. Yet their fear mongering, divisive identity politics, fake news, and brainwashing have the residents of these cities constantly voting for them. But everything has its limits, and there's a lot of frustration and questioning of the authorities now. One day these people will wake up and realize they've been duped by these Leftist fraudsters and throw them out of office.

Seattle is an awesome city. I'd love to live there.
I have some very liberal Democrat friends who have rentals sent their equally liberal child to college there. I ran into him the other day, and I was asking how he liked Seattle, he said the homelessness crisis is completely out of control there, and getting worse by the day. Sure, you have certain areas where the wealthy Democrats live, that are nice and have expensive real estate values, etc., like many Democrat run cities.

It's hilarious how these cities run by Democrats and "socialists" are great examples of income inequality, and corruption.

As for state's finances? Oops

One more critic of a city by someone who has not provided what state they call home.
Not my criticism loon. It came from Seattle itself
I realize that, you are a member of the echo chamber. I asked a simple question: Where do you call home?

I was in both San Fransicko and Seattle last year on business...Both cities are positively overrun with junkie and alcoholic bums.

Yes it is.

I was born and raised here. I've lived here all my life. I travel all over our nation and world. I always come back here. There's no place like the Pacific Northwest.

There's a very good reason why people have been flocking here since the 70s.

Awesome if you like sitting in traffic for a couple hours each day.

Though the 'burbs on the west side of Lake Washington are marginally tolerable -flying Tiger Mountain is awesome when the weather is clear- the cost of living there is ridiculous...2nd highest fuel taxes in the nation and positively obscene liquor taxes.

You're full of shit. I've been to SF and Seattle within the last few months. One can find the seedy areas in most urban centers, but in SF if you claim what you did, you were hanging out in the Tenderloin; better see the Dr. if you partook in sex trade there - oh, and keep in mind some of those gals are guys, and good enough actors to convince a drinking man that they are a woman.

I started my LE Career in The City by the Bay and know where not to go; if you are a country bumpkin you likely stumbled into, or asked someone where the tenderloin is.

I worked three blocks from Fisherman's Wharf....The stories about human shit in the streets, though I didn't want to believe them, are true...On the weekends, the air is borderline polluted with pot smoke...The bums are everywhere...You are in denial just like every other liberoidal fuckwit.

So you sort out human shit in the streets. How do you know it wasn't dog shit, do you taste the shit and know the difference? Russian Hill is a residential neighborhood, Columbus Ave is hightly traveled by foot and cars lined with businesses, some bars and restaurants - I claim bullshit. Walking toward the bay from Columbus Ave onto Broadway is not well traveled by car or foot traffic in the evenings, there you might have encountered shit - dog or people, who knows - but if you were there you would be seeking something other than business opportunities.

Walking the Embarcadero from Fisherman's Wharf all the way to the Giants Ball Park has lots of foot traffic, rickshaws and bikes - I've walked that plenty of times from Market St. to the Ball Park and never encountered shit on the street. Of course I don't spent that time looking for shit, there is much more to see looking at the bay and the boats, ships, kayaks on the water and the old street cars on the F Line which once ran in many other US cities.

One mans trash is another mans treasure.

I wouldn’t set foot in the city for any reason. Then again that could be said about almostvthe entirety of the West Coat for me.

A great deal of San Francisco now is like the way only the Tenderloin used to be...only worse.
