TBF, that's more of a city/rural thing I'd assume, where the cities are progressive but the rural areas are conservative, but the city population outnumbers the rural population so they're more progressive overall

Same thing with my state, we're pretty progressive overall cause we have a big city population but we have a lot of backwoods places that are as red as they get, and I live in one of those areas. Granted, our biggest city has less than 150 thousand people in it, but there's enough mid sized cities to balance out the rural areas


Progressive? What state is that, if you don't mind? I'm still trying to figure out where my next move will be. Let me guess. Oregon or Washington?

CT

At least, I assume we're pretty progressive, both our Senators and all our Reps are Dems who are all pretty safe, and despite having the least liked governor in the country (who was also a Dem) a couple years ago, we still elected another Dem, though it was kinda close, and Lamont isn't exactly progressive himself, but he's not regressive

CT is the insurance industry state. Otherwise I don’t know much about it, oddly enough. I used to drive through It going back and forth to college. The one thin from CT which I will always be grateful to it for is the band NRBQ! Probably way before your time. But just a great rock and roll bar band.

I can’t believe this garbage still happens. They couldn’t arrest anybody? The whole mob needs to be charged and arrested to make sure this type of stuff doesn’t continue to happen. There has to be repercussions.


yeah. firing isn't enough. need to see some arrests and charges.

Yeah, insurance is big here. We actually do a lot of military engineering, with Pratt & Whitney, Electric Boat, and Sikorsky. Fun fact, Sikorsky is where Marine One (president's helicopter) is built, and EB is the main submarine construction yard for the US. I know quite a few people who work at all three, they're pretty big industries here

Also, we serve as a tax haven for NYers who don't want to pay to live in the city, which is what the leg of the state is for

Interesting. Massachusetts which is probably considered more progressive than CT is home to Raytheon which gets many government contracts for production of military weapons, I believe. It's been one of the criticism of Elizabeth Warren who has voted a few times (or more) in favor of Trump's military spending bills. Yet, Massachusetts is considered a progressive state. Even Washington and Oregon, once you get out into the real rural parts, it's ultra conservative with many militias to boot.

The McMichael son who murdered Ahmaud Arbery shouted a racial slur at him after shooting him.

Thanks for article. It's important this case doesn't get lost in all of the other things going on right now. Too often people forget about things after a week or two.

Saw that earlier. It's looking like they hunted Ahmoud Arbery down, almost for sport. Makes me sick to my stomach. But not surprised.

All of it is sickening. I still haven't watched Mr. Arbery's murder and I could only watch about 5 seconds of that officer driving his knee into Mr. Floyd's neck.

The only thing about this that warms my heart are the protesters. We need a revolution in the country badly. I only hope that it grows rather than die out.
