Congrats, Seattle! You got rid of a socialist and gained a community organizer with a track record of “flash mobs”

Oh boy Seattle, you are in for another fun ride with the new city council member you just elected in District 3.

If you believe that anything is going to change with the repeat offenders, homeless crisis, homeless criminal activity and police response time, well, good luck with that optimism. You’re going to need it.

Bye, bye Socialist Sawant

Egan Orion is apparently going to defeat the incumbent socialist Kshama Sawant for Seattle City Council. In 2016, citizens in Seattle elected the socialist Sawant to council. Read about her radical views here.

On Tuesday, Seattle voters swapped her out for another far-left progressive – Egan Orion. His Twitter bio: “Writer, PrideFest and BBIA Executive Director, small business owner, and community activist running for Seattle City Council District 3.”

Hello Egan! Photo from his Twitter profile

His background/qualifications? From his web site:

“My grandfather was a Teamster who moved to Capitol Hill in the 1930’s to start a family. My parents were both teachers, but they wouldn’t be able to purchase a home in today’s Seattle. I will fight for living wage jobs and affordable housing options that protect and welcome diversity and dynamism in our neighborhoods.

I have a track record—from flash mobs to PrideFest—of creating opportunities and events that celebrate our diversity and unity. We are a dynamic, increasingly young and diverse city that needs to celebrate and protect what makes this a great place to live, work, and play.”

Egan does understand the seriousness of the homeless crisis in his demorat-run city. His solutions?

Build more affordable housing. Expand all types of housing. Change “Backyard Cottage” legislation. Stronger renter protections. Expand 24/7 low-barrier, high supervisions shelters. Prioritize treatment on-demand for mental health and substance use disorder.

All good ideas, yet ones that have been in place in Seattle for some time. All proposed solutions and millions of dollars spent have had a minimal impact on reducing homelessness in this demorat-run city.

At least Seattle voters had the good sense to get rid of the socialist. They’ve now got a replacement progressive. I’m not holding my breath that much is going to change in that failing city.

The solutions mentioned to homelessness, addiction, etc. are ineffective for actually addressing those problems but very effective for creating armies of paper-shufflers, “case workers”, and patronage jobs. And D voters. Whatever you subsidize you get more of, build it and they will come. They must have dredged the bottom of the swamp to come up with “Egan”. PrideFest and flash mobs you say. Get away from me

I meant to add that most states provide homes for homeless people who break the law. They’re called prisons. And there is a solution to drug abuse/addiction; it’s called abstinence. And from my experience, for many if not most “mentally ill” people, their mental illness is secondary to their drug abuse

This is so often ignored now. Everyone says drug addicts use it to cure a mental illness, I say that more often, the mental illness is the result of the use. Enforced abstinence and useful work can solve a lot of this.

It goes both ways but the majority of the time when people experience “symptoms” they are self-generated through drugs/ alcohol. They get into the system that tells them they are victims of a disease and so they continue to drink/use in between brief periods of abstinence. They call that being “in recovery”. Drug abusers continue to use as long as they can get away with it. The drug abuse “treatment” system gives them cover. A waste of time and money and a major impediment to genuine recovery

I have been awol for awhile, due to actually being pretty busy with other things. And the first thing that I get back here, I have to share a post that I saw, and felt myself becoming almost physically sick. We know the left is bat s… crazy. I just didn’t realize how demonic and willing to follow in the footsteps of their father Satan. Until now. The city of Austin, TX has just had their school board vote to begin teaching children from the grades of 3rd, through 8th, about so called sex education. Which, while on the outside,… Read more »

I used to have nightmares , and after waking would suddenly have a sigh of relief. Now most days are the opposite. I awake from pleasant dreams, rushing headlong into the realization that the system is totally evil and insane.
But also in the knowledge that so many adore it.

Beautifully stated. In these dark times I recall what Abe Lincoln said: Without His assistance I cannot succeed. With His assistance I cannot fail

You are so right. Now is the time for prayer. We are in the middle of a spiritual battle for souls and this nation.
