46. Well, I'm not shocked to see that the Seattle office has their hands full.

I moved up here from California, and I tell ya, I have never been in a place with so many deranged people with guns. Every day you look at the news to see how shot someone. And looking at the rants on the news site comments up here, they are begging for someone to break into their house so they can kill them. Seriously.. this place is nuts. Too many ignorant and angry old white men with guns.

Right now, next door, my neighbor ( a HUGE Glenn Beck fan) is having his paranoid angry old men over to help him put up a second tower for his ham radio. See, they all believe that the President will be declaring martial law and taking their guns, and sending them to camps (seriously, they told me this.) So they have gotten their ham radio network going, because they truly believe that after the election, either way, there will be rioting and they will shut down the airwaves . Of course, for all their talk of the President being a "socialist" and "secret Muslim" they have no problem living on their medicare, social security, and the husband who retired young from working for the military after a "devastating"back injury, and has been living off that for years and years. Amazing that his back injury allows him to shove gravel, build things, and do other kinds of hard labor at home... while claiming other people are living off the Govt like socialists.

ETA: Moving back to California in a few weeks. I cannot stand it up here... need to be around people I can relate to. Unless you're right IN Seattle, the Puget Sound area is like a Glenn Beck live audience.
