Seattle is a great city where folks tend to get along with each other better than they do in some other places. Having visited both North Carolina (places like Charlotte and Greensboro) and Seattle, I must say Seattle is a much better place. Of course I'm sure that has a lot to do with a better educated populace...

educated populace indeed... Since our city is a lot more peaceful our kids are able to learn better in school.. Its a bigger city so it's more diverse. So there are many people learning about different cultures.
My friend from North Carolina had to drop out of high school he said that the school was too unruly.. He had a hard time focusing on his studies.. there was too much racial wars and too much gang violence.
luckily he got his GED and is living in a much healthier environment.

Just curious, what does one call it when voting locations are reduced in number, days allotted for voting are reduced in number and making access to polling places more difficult? I have to believe any reasonable person would think that it's safe to call that suppression, to say the least. Voters have experienced this in North Carolina as well as in other places, just so you know.
If that is truly happening, then I cannot argue with you.
