Back to South spanaway, the land of deleted and lifted diesel trucks, poverty, giant American flags that no longer mean patriotism and represent something darker, gun rights, a surprisingly high percentage of minorities, bad food but in huge quantities, anti-vaxxers, endless self-storage units, bikini baristas, unreliable people, mobile home parks with bars in the middle of them, diy, wider roads and open space properties.

The Great Myths of World War 2
