So a group of wacos in some states have asked to cede.

The biggest number is in texas. 23,000.

You could get 23,000 people to sign that we didnt land on the moon or that "Shadow Menace" was bettrer than "The Empire strikes back".

This same thing happened in 2004.

Of course the media didnt mention it. It wasnt a story.

Of course when Obama is in charge anything that makes his opponents seem irrational is top drawer news.

I did not post it for the news value, I posted for the humor. Of course since your sense of humor stops with fat chicks it went over your head.

The following is from The Political Carnival







Dear Red States:

We’re ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we’ve decided we’re leaving.

We in the Blue States intend to form our own country. In case you aren’t aware, that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon [although per my link, Oregon has petitioned for secession since President Obama was re-elected], Washington, Minnesota, Colorado, Michigan, Illinois, New Mexico, and the rest of the Northeast.

We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of the Enlightened States of America (E.S.A.).

To sum up briefly:

You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.

We get stem cell research and the best beaches.

We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal and Todd Akin.

We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Opryland.

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% lower than the Christian Coalition’s, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80% of the country’s fresh water, more than 90% of of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation’s fresh fruit, 95% of America’s quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners), 90% of all cheese, 90% 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 Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Princeton, Cal Tech, and MIT.

With the Red States you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs, 92% of all mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson, and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

38% of those in the Red States believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we’re discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% say that Saddam was involved in 9/11, and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are the people with higher morals than we lefties.

We’re taking the good weed, too. You can have that crap they grow in Mexico.

Sincerely,

Citizens of the Enlightened States of America

You forgot about the part where we get 99% of the people who believe in a strong military, and you get the 99% of the people who who wouldn't fight to defend their own children because someone's self-esteem may suffer.    I'm guessing that the Georgia National Guard could walk into 'Enlightened States of America' and conquer it without a shot.  Maybe even the Texas A&M  ROTC.         If you don't give it away to the Iranians first.

Yeah, because states like Michigan, MInnesota, etc don't have National Guard units.

People 'unliking' Romney on Facebook

DisappearingRomney.com shows dropping Facebook friends in real time

(CNN) -

Nobody "likes" a loser.

If losing the presidential election wasn't enough, Mitt Romney has been hemorrhaging Facebook friends.

People began unliking Romney's official Facebook page soon after the election results came in last week. The Washington Post noticed the drop on Friday, when the GOP presidential candidate's page was losing 593 likes an hour.

 

By Saturday, Mashable said the exodus was up to 847 friends an hour, and as of Monday morning, Romney's Facebook page continued to lose around 11 likes every minute.

For those who enjoy interactive graphics with their schadenfreude, the site DisappearingRomney.com shows Romney's Facebook likes dropping in real time. A ticker at the bottom of the page tallies how many people have unliked Romney's page just in the time users have been on the site.

Not that Romney is hurting for social media pals. As of Monday afternoon, he still had more than 12 million Facebook fans and 1.7 million followers on Twitter.

The former governor's team hasn't been doing much on social media lately to persuade people to stick around. After a flurry of activity leading up to the election, his official Facebook and Twitter accounts went silent for four days afterward. On Saturday, the campaign finally posted a photo of a sad-looking Romney with the message, "From the bottom of our hearts, Ann and I thank you for your support, prayers, efforts and vote. We are forever grateful to every one of you."

By contrast, President Barack Obama acknowledged his victory last week with a pair of posts on Twitter and Facebook that quickly went viral. And his social media accounts have been active in the week since the election.

Romney's recent silence extends to his running mate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, whose campaign's Twitter account has not been updated since the election. However, Ryan did update his personal (pre-campaign) Twitter and Facebook pages with two Veterans Day posts over the weekend.

The official Republican National Committee's Facebook page has also been quiet since Election Day, when it reposted a thank you to Romney from GOP Chairman Reince Priebus.

After Obama was first elected four years ago, his official Twitter, Facebook and, yes, MySpace pages (it was 2008, after all) went quiet for a time.

One explanation is that the staffers who manage these accounts either move on or are typically given new responsibilities after an election. It's unlikely that Obama or Romney were posting to Facebook and Twitter very often themselves.

This is supposed to be funny.

It is only funny if there is some truth to it.

And this is clearly a left slanted joke. They are smart and free and we are Jesus followers.

It would have been better if they said "God and Guns clingers" but that would look bad for Obama.

And the left likes to bring up Education. They are against cuts in Education and they always act like the reason education has been bad in America for the last 50 years is
because the Tea Party wants to cut spending.

You're taking that funny picture a little too seriously.
11/13/2012 6:39 PM
As a Canadian I take umbridge with the fact that it says United States over Canada.  We are a soverign country last time I looked!  :)

The left thinks like that.

Pointing out the truth isnt a big deal, but you have to keep doing it.

Let a lie be told 3 times and it becomes the truth!
11/13/2012 7:14 PM
Either loosen up and pull that stick out of your *** or shove it all the way up into your brain stem. 
11/13/2012 7:35 PM
So, Swamp, you are saying that it isnt true? that info put foreword by rcrusso is pretty interesting.  Are you disputing those facts?  If you are please site specific links disproving them, or simply admit that blue states are in fact smarter then red states.  And really better in most respects too...

On a personal note I have traveled pretty extensively throughout most of the states, every state east of the Miss in fact, and some west of it too.  And Americans in general no matter where they hail from are good peeps.  Though I wouldnt debate politics with most of the ones living in red states as we would hate each other in minutes...
