Talking about disingenuous... again you should look in the mirror.
I thoght I was but saw you and realized it was glass I guess I really do see through you.

Why sit here and just quote part of what I said ?You need to be right that bad?WOW
Funny how you misquote instead of just placing the quote I actually said.

I said IF YOU INTEND TO COMPLAIN ABOUT PLACE BECAUS you DISLIKE THE CULTURE,Stay put.
I said nothing about not sharing an opinion.
You are just straight up being a liar now

In PNW....you better be sure to seek a "sunbelt" if you're subject to SAD in any way.

In the Southeast, a good amount of sun, but very hot humid summers... latter is not as bad, in my experience, as constant overcast/rain. All the outdoor charm disappears when it's constantly dump, moldy, rainy (cold rain), drizzly, you just want to hide from this, not go out there, and waterproof gear feels like a space suit...and it's dark a lot, also.

I agree about PNW conifer forests (in Western WA at least) having gloomy appearance... tree crowns have very dark color, it adds to overall darkness of the wet season (which is most of the year).

I would not live in PNW again even if they paid me to.

The fact that some people don't get this illustrates my point perfectly.
The only 2 times in my life I was invited to "church" were in the state of....WA and in the state of Alabama.
Rural WA it's like Alabama with rains. I think WA got more crackheads.

People in the south are no doubt less likely to virtue signal about recycling. It seems like a lot of these environmentalists in the PNW are tooting their horn a little to much about being 'green'. We need Randy Moss to give them a little 'toot toot'.
I'm all for recycling, but it cracks me to see stuff like expensive clothes made of "recycled tires"...this stuff is outright toxic.

Anything to the idea that being asked is being forced or assumes anything or is akin to being forced is just plain silly.
I was invited to mosque once....in the Deep South.
And I've been subject to Christian preaching in stores...in Western WA, which never happened to me in the Deep South....

In PNW, once you step outside few cities, I guarantee it's more hardcore than Alabama.
I mean when you come to a Wamart parking lot and you see camo RV, some camo cars and camo undies and bedding inside and everything is camo...or go to a "natural foods" store and get preached Jesus...you know you're in rural PNW!

This was your response to a post of mine in which I did not attack you in the slightest.

Amazing the arrogance.

So you need to look harder in that mirror instead of trying to make witty remarks and failing.
Again who is being disingenuous here.


Also my last two quote of yours were in full. So you starting to look bad here.....

Religion aside, my understanding is that outside the major cities, people in the PNW are pretty conservative.

Most of WA is like this, including PNW.

Once, a candidate for Washington governor was going to "govern from the Bible," state constitution be damned. She got 42%. Yes, Washington can be bat**** crazy outside of the Seattle area, where she had a clear majority. We might go overboard in the other direction sometimes of course.
