Everyone has their opinion and here is mine.....

As I said, everyone has their opinion, there experience sort of speak, and here is mine. I lived in Seattle for about 5 years, 2009-2011, and 2015-beginning 2018. When you first get there it looks nice, green with cloud cover, never hot and never really too cold. But that is where it ends. They have something called the "Seattle Freeze", essentially if they don't like you, as a city that is, they di think like a herd, they will freeze you out They wont talk to you and just ignore you like a little kid. Other than that, they have a very strong dislike to authority, police, law, etc. The streets are filled with homeless, I was actually chased by one down the street with blood flowing down his face, and the city is ok with it. When you go to the police or city to file a compliant you are disregarded, its as if the Constitution is suspended when you walk out of the airport. They tend to live by some idea of social law, like the book lord of the flies. I even once went to the state office, I am a US citizen, to speak to them about a service, and was entirely disregarded. I kind of thought of the city as being some isolated hamlet. The government condones this lifestyle and even promotes it. Some people like it, but to me one of the worst places in this country.
