Retired Forester...now fishing instead of working
I don't hate the state government.Yeah but Vladimir never misses an opportunity to let us all know that he hates our state government, western Washington, and the bulk of all of us who are clearly inferior.
However, I did move over to Washington from Idaho in 1981. I moved to Colville. No, big deal I thought I was moving from one poor state to another. Idaho was a poor state in 1980. The state of Washington closed their unemployment office in Colville when unemployment hit 25%.!! I guess they just gave up on helping people???
Then I moved to Wenatchee in 1985 and realized how rich the state government was in Washington state. So much so...they built a stadium for the SECOND richest person in the WORLD at the time.
I am sorry, but I still remember the state of Washington giving up on helping people in Colville and closing the unemployment office and then building a stadium for Paul Allen in a STATE EMERGENCY.
I don't think people in western Washington are "inferior". I think they lack compassion for the poor. I am a immigrant to this country. I know what poverty is when your growing up as a kid.
To keep it fishing related I distinctly remember my father telling me that we couldn't afford a fishing rod for me because the union might go on strike in the next few months.
Please....I don't think people in western Washington are "inferior". I have a lot of friends in western Washington that respect.
However, I guess I am still a poor kid at heart. Yeah, even though I am no longer poor.....I do still have a problem with a state government that puts stadiums for the rich before helping the poor.
