Of course this thread was started by someone who lives in a state that is at or near the bottom of the heap for healthcare, education and infrastructure. Can't even provide potable water to the citizens pf its capital city!!
You know the old saying about glass houses, right? Washington State? Seattle? Those places sound familiar? As far as nose dives go, if it weren't for Portland and SF, Seattle would be king!
Aren't a significant number of Washington residents itching to leave the state, land and all, to join Idaho? Haven't heard of any secessionist movement in Mississippi with a bunch of folk trying to join a neighboring state.
I'd suggest you have enough problem in your home state that denigrating another is simply grasping at straws for a diversionary tactic. A textbook ad hominen as well.
