This was a Fun read
« on: November 09, 2008, 10:56:16 PM »
Got a chuckle upon reading this.
 Dear Red States:
>>
>>
>>
>>            We've decided we're leaving. We intend
>> to form our own country, and
>>
>>         we're taking the other Blue States with us. In
>> case you aren't aware,
>>
>>         that includes California , Hawaii , Oregon , Washington ,
>> Minnesota ,
>>
>>         Wisconsin, Michigan , Illinois and all the
>> Northeast. We believe
>>
>>         this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to
>> the
>>
>>         people of the new country of New California.
>>
>>
>>
>>             To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the
>> slave
>>
>>         states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get
>> the
>>
>>         Statue of Liberty . You get Dollywood. We get Intel and
>> Microsoft You
>>
>>         get WorldCom. We get Harvard. You get Ole'
>> Miss. We get 85 percent of
>>
>>         America's venture capital and entrepreneurs.
>> You get Alabama . We
>>
>>         get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red
>> states pay
>>
>>         their fair share.
>>
>>
>>
>>             Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than
>> the
>>
>>         Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families.
>> Please be
>>
>>         aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war,
>> and we're
>>
>>         going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you
>> need
>>
>>         people to fight, ask your evangelicals.
>>
>>
>>           With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm
>> control of 80 %
>>        of the country's fresh water, more than 90
>> percent of the pineapple
>>
>>         and lettuce, 92 percent of the nation's fresh
>> fruit, 95 percent of
>>
>>         America's quality wines (you can serve French
>> wines at state dinners)
>>
>>         90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high
>> tech industry, most
>>
>>         of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and
>>
>>         condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford,
>> Cal
>>
>>         Tech and MIT.
>>
>>
>>           With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to
>>
>>         cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans (and their
>> projected
>>
>>         health care costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly
>> 100
>>
>>         percent of the tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99
>> percent
>>
>>         of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all
>> televangelists,
>>
>>         Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and
>> the
>>
>>         University of Georgia. We get Hollywood and
>> Yosemite, thank you.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>           Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red
>> states believe Jonah was
>>
>>         actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is
>> sacred
>>
>>         unless we're discussing the death penalty or
>> gun laws, 44 percent
>>
>>         say that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent
>> that Saddam was
>>
>>         involved in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy
>> bastards believe you
>>
>>         are people with higher morals then we lefties.
>>
>>         Finally, we're taking the good pot, too.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>         Peace out,
>>

and they are welcome to go.  they may take congress and the  new prez with them.  it will be quite interesting to see how the veggie chomping Birkenstock crowd survives without real men and women.   :evil:

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Couldn't agree more.  And I'm glad to see another calling herself a 'proud bitter clinger', I've been calling myself that in my head ever since this sorry election went down.

I guess grabbing my guns will not even be needed. I'll just bring a wet noodle, use some harsh words, and if a few of those survivalists want to tag along, we'll just push those antiwar, self-imposed elitists, right into the pacific.  :-D

If you all join hands in California, we can make this as painless as possible and it will be a smooth transition. Just start heading west till you come to your senses.  :-*

excellent point irwin. the same is true of washington and california.  something happens to people when they cram together in cities.  or maybe, they cram together because we scare them into herds??   :?

You'll also get all of the smog.  And all the human digestion-produced smog from granola/bean-eating birkenstock wearing tree-huggers :-D

There's a big chunk of all those states you'll be leaving behind, thanks.  But you are more than welcome to the East side of Michigan.  We have really wanted to get rid of that side for some time.  That is where all of our pollution comes from, ecological and political. :evil:
