Be honest, if we let the mutant mob have Seattle, would you really miss it? Weve already gotten all the good music out of it, coffee is everywhere, so what else do they bring to the table? If you feel as though you missed your chance to visit the Space Needle, they have a similar enough tower in Toronto. And you can catch scabies in any number of third world countries with much better climates. So I say, let them have it.
For that matter, give them the whole state. They inflicted Microsoft on the country, so think of leaving them to the wolves as revenge for whatever version of Windows last crashed on you, which is to say whatever the latest version of Windows there is. Toss in Oregon, too, because what good has ever come from Oregon?
Thats an honest question. Im sure theyve added something besides trees, I just have no idea what it is. Nor do I care. Whatever it is (beaver pelts, maybe?), Ill happily forego to create whatever they end up calling a country that will undoubtedly be a magnet for like-minded leftists, thereby ridding this country of a significant percentage of those carcinogens known as progressives.
Let them create Utopia, or at least see how it goes.
Right now, the mutants only have the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ, since few of them likely know how to spell most of those words, in downtown Seattle. Described as a block party or festival, depending on whether the Democrat discussing it is an elected city official or a journalist at a major network, this area is fully dependent upon the city for all its services. If they were ceded a larger area, they would have the infrastructure needed to last longer and could welcome more citizens, unburdening the rest of us, at least until they come begging for our help.
Theyd need a new name, obviously. It wouldnt be a small neighborhood anymore and calling their citizens CHAZes sounds stupid. Their natural inclination would be to name it The Democratic Peoples Republic of something or other, maybe Che Guevara, so they wouldnt have to buy new t-shirts or get their tramp stamp tattoos changed. But that doesnt really roll off the tongue.
I have a suggestion: the nation of Childish Humans Under Democracy. I think that captures what theyre trying to do, plus citizens could easily be called CHUDs. Yes, there will be some confusion between them and the Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers from the 80s movie C.H.U.D., but how many countries already have a readymade tourism video that so accurately depicts what a vacation there would be like? but how many countries already have a readymade tourism video that so accurately depicts what a vacation there would be like?
Logistically, there would need to be a transition period the potential CHUDs in the ceded area would have to decide if they wanted to stay or move to the United States. Considering who theyve elected, only a few would likely choose to leave, so the process shouldnt take too long. Plus, we have to allow enough time for CNN, MSNBC, and most newspapers to secure buildings large enough to house their corporate headquarters. Surely they wouldnt want to miss out on what they helped birth.
Citizenship in this country would have to be renounced or revoked, naturally, by any CHUDs wishing to stay or move there a small price to pay for a life of communal joy without police. Theyd have to establish a currency, maybe pinecones, bars of soap, or some other objects for which theyd have no use otherwise.
How they choose to defend themselves from invasion from Canada will be up to them, but its unlikely our neighbors to the north would want them any more than we do.
We can establish official diplomatic relations as soon as they decide wholl hold the conch shell, or whatever way they come up with to determine who their leader is.
The rest of their dream world they can work out over time, on their own.
Id give it a few months, which is probably optimistic, but I figure even a few million CHUDs couldnt screw things up to the point of literal cannibalism in less than eight weeks. I could be wrong. Since professional hacky sack, competitive granola eating, and accusing everyone of being a racist arent exactly growth industries, I suspect their economy wouldnt exactly last very long.
Liberal billionaires would pony up a little seed money, but their objective is to ruin this country, not be exposed as frauds. They cant get richer throwing good money after bad trying to devalue a currency with no value to begin with.
No matter what happens, itll be a fun little experiment to watch. All it would cost us is some square miles and the will to let it play out. Oh, and the cost of a border wall. They will have made their Utopia. They can lie in it.
After three months of lockdowns, whats a few more without a couple of states? So let Seattle go. Better that than allowing the poison that is progressivism to continue to metastasize here and take out the whole country.
The problem with doing nothing is potential spread. CHAZ is a single cell gone wrong. Stop it before it infects others
Just build a wall to keep them in.
Never heard of the place and I’m across the lake. Looks like a place my kids might be interested in!
Certainly President Trump understands the importance of and to make the most of prime time television. Recent events have provided another opportunity for him to address the nation during prime time.
In order to get the media to provide coverage and provide it from start to finish, the even will need to be a subject they can not resist to cover.
The subject can be an announcement on the use of the military and national guard during the current rioting. The potential for points against Trump will be too much for them not to cover.
But instead of allowing them to score points president Trump should go on offensive driving three major points across to the American public.
First as the prime time event starts you will see President trump and three pastors. President Trump will be kneeling on both knees. You will have a priest a rabbi and a pastor. One of which should be African American. They will all have hands on the President praying over him silently.
The President will then stand up and recite the pledge of allegiance before the American flag.
He will then follow with a short address containing three points to cover. Keeping the press from breaking away coverage is important so the speech must be short and concise.
The first point will be for every event an American flag is raised or honored a short period of prayer and reflection be given asking God for reconciliation and a deeper understanding of what divides our country before the flag is displayed.
The second point will be about funds (in the billions) that will be allocated toward training for police departments throughout the United States on procedures for handling situations such as George Floyd.
The third and final would be notification to the American people of the Presidents plan to federalize the national guard if a peaceful solution to domestic terrorist activity can not be found.
The non violent protesters are going on pure emotion and are moved by acts that move these emotions. One of President Trumps line during the campaign was what do you have to lose. At this time many of these people are angry and do not trust any institution since they can not identify why they feel the way the do. Acts of violence by police are only justification for these feelings for them. This is a historic opportunity to shift loyalties if done correctly.
Seattle is just their beginning! Stop them now!
Gotta insure against “urban sprawl” and then the premise is correct - wouldn’t miss it.
Be honest, if we let the mutant mob have Seattle, would you really miss it?
Or Detroit or Portland or Sam Francisco or LA or NYC or ... name ur city ... would we miss America if the mutant mob took over? Let one go let all go
What we get from a weak and feckless FedGov rendered powerless.
The leftists in seattle “democratically” elected the people who are allowing all that is happening to continue.
You made your bed, people of seattle. Sleep in it.
I have such good memories of Seattle in the ‘70s and ‘80s, and we’d visit often. It’s a shame it had to come to this. We’d visit from Alaska, and the guys would go to football games while we shopped at South Center. There was no sales tax in AK then (might be now), so when we landed at the airport there was a kiosk where you could get a tax exempt card and shop like crazy at their stores. They had some great restaurants, and we loved the Olympic Hotel. Now it sounds like total crap. The Pacific NW is gorgeous!
Sure, you bettcha, and if I get a dime I’ll buy a cup of coffee.
Talk about weak!
I’m beginning to wonder if it’s not time to transition into the 49 United States of America - that shares a border with Antifistan. Provide all malcontents (liberals, Marxists, anarchists, BLM’s, - throw in professors, media-types, celebrities, athletes, popular culturalists, etc.) who can no longer abide living in America their own state (let it be Washington). Give them free passage there (u-haul service so they can lug their newly pilfered loot), as well. Once they enter, they forfeit their US citizenship. They are not allowed re-entry (as they become part of a hostile nation). They are entitled to whatever their land will afford, but all gas lines, pipelines, trucking, transit, power lines, food supplies, medical supplies, etc. are cut off at their borders (unless they want to arrange trade deals.)
Once this occurs, the remaining citizens of this country need to have access to a proper quality education where all distortions and lies that have been broadcast, aired, or taught without correction or challenge for the last several decades may be corrected.
Agreed! They will take the entire country if left unchecked forcibly or otherwise
Every Spoke matters.
I know its fun now, but at some point it would become a base of operations for drug cartels or Chicomm invasion. Would be like allowing the Nazis to take control of just one little part of a city in America during WW2. Its tricky only because many of our cities now are seeming to be pledging their allegiance to other countries or philosophies.
If we could trust it would remain completely independent and just bit of fun for us to laugh at the idiot hippies, that would be one thing, but it wouldnt. A vacuum, a failed state, would be taken advantage of as a beachhead for enemy foreign powers. They could then work out in the open on our own soil toward our destruction .
Isnt Seattle a deep water port? In fact there are many on the left coast. We would all miss them.
If we let ALL cities go, would we miss them?
The reasons that people with skills and jobs might want to live in a city are pretty much gone now.
Not really. But then it would spread to Tacoma, Olympia, Spokane, Ceour de Alene (sp?), etc.
