^^^^^ Yes, and yes ^^^^^

YH/RJ

Yep.

Not saying that everyone, and every state/place is, but a great deal of it sure seems to be. None of them will outright call it communism, but they sure like what the package promises. Socialism or Social Justice are popular terms, always entwined with 'tolerance/fairness/equality' in the discussion. Captalism is a hated term, if ever mentioned...and that always seems to be linked with racism, intolerance, bigotry, misogyny, xenophobia, et al. At least in my experience.

As for "Theattle"...I don't know what to say. I don't even recognize it
anymore when I travel back home. Western WA just seems insane. Honestly surprised they don't have memorials to Stalin, Marx, Engels, Lenin, Mao, and especially Odumbo. People whom I grew up with, just seem to worship this garbage. Many seem shattered and angry that Helldabeast or Bernout didn't win. Lots of these folks seem to have IT jobs, or work in academia or admin
positions, or belong to a union of some sort. Have had some really heated discussions with such folks. If it isn't 'left', it just isn't right.

The schools are an outright mess, at least the ones I've been to. Reading relatives kid's schoolbooks or project papers makes my blood boil. The computer projects/papers and so called research material are @#$%^.
Quite a few of the teachers, I wouldn't let anywhere near a pet rock, let alone a small human.

Yet decade after decade, the parents/voters seem to ask for more of the same. 40 years on, still seeing some of the same last names on campaign signs. WTH over. Guess they either don't know, or don't care, about what is happening. Or they are just genuinely ok with it.

Amazing that communism wasn't forced on this country, militarily, during the Cold War, for all the old films and books about that happening. It seems to have slowly crept in through the classroom and political realms instead, along with .gub and the media, and religious institutions as well, sadly. They did with mouth, pen, and money what arms and violence usually do in revolutions.

Guess alot of folks like the feel and taste of being tailpiped...as long as there is some bennie or perk attached.

Thinking these next few years there is going to be the final cultural shift event. Probably isn't going to be a gentle one. Too much at stake for the komrades to give up now.

Oh never mind.
Wouldn't be legal to do that here, at least not yet!

Out of style today, but like bell bottom jeans, and mint green leisure suits, just hide them in the back of the closet, everything old will become new again.
