Seattle to Alabama, that is quite the change!

I've lived in both places.
I like Alabama 100000000x better, and that isn't saying much.

I met some weird people in Alabama, and by weird I mean weird in a non drug use way.
I'll say this, Alabama was the best smelling state. Some kind of wildflower/honeysuckle grows there that really
perfumes the air. I'll never forget that smell.

Great thread, I appreciate the light it's shedding on some of the problems here.

For several years I've had a food delivery job, and it takes me all over the city so I get to notice things and also I always have food that needs to get donated during my route. This company was horribly unclear and unorganized about getting food donated while it was still good. I decided I would just take it to the many Tiny House Villages we have called Nickelsville after our crappy mayor who started the homeless mess. Ive been taking food to these shelters for almost 4 years now and it has given me some insight into why the homeless here stay homeless.

At Nickelsvilles they are now overseen by another entity which is basically not doing much other than giving them that roof for cheap, the residents do not like them and the politics they now have. Most there are recovering addicts or mentally ill so getting work is next to impossible. The ONLY focus of the managing group is to get them into permanent low cost housing. But after almost 4 years these places are full of 90% of the same people, they are not getting housed.

Let's talk pot stores. Seattle has plenty for sure, but the biggest issue is the pot store chains, that setup multiple stores within blocks of each other, and attract tons of homeless and addicts. This isn't the case everywhere, we have some small independent stores that are in nice neighborhoods. But when you start seeing pot related garbage all over the streets you realize it's starting to become a problem.

It just doesn't feel even close to the city I moved to years ago, it's a strange confusing place.

Seattle is a sh*thole. It is really sad as the city is quiet beautiful. Same with Portland. Same with San Francisco. All three of these cities are very similar in terms of the rampant homelessness. They also are run by rabid left wing loons from city councils up to the mayor so it is clear the issue is the politics.

I've been to all three cities multiple times and it is really eye opening. I'm a big city guy (live in Chicago) so it isn't like I am looking at this from a suburban perspective. I've never seen so many bums /drug addicts as in those cities. Third world squalor.

I totally agree. I always use Chicago as a comparison. Even with all it's problems, Chicago is beautiful, it really it.

Seattle used to be beautiful too.

People in Seattle are not complaining. Its possible that your neighborhood is more open-minded than you realize?

YES they are.

I have many MANY relatives and friend that have lived there 20-30-40-50+ years

Edit to add - maybe newly transplanted Cali people aren't
