OK, Georgie, you’re gonna live this.
The colonists pitched the tea in the harbor rather than pay tax on it?
So we do a whole new approach.
Leave the tax ON tea.
But now we add a fine if they DON’T buy tea.
Still call it a tax though.
Call it “Yo mama if I care”.
The people of Northern California feel that they are no longer being represented by the liberal government of central California. To that end they wish to secede from California and form a new state called Jefferson. The good people of Northern Colorado come to a similar conclusion regarding themselves and the liberal government running the state out of Denver and Boulder. Ditto the situation with Western Maryland vs the liberal government of Maryland. All of these people wish to secede from the existing state and form a new political entity to go to represent themselves. To that end they represent a greater threat to the central federal government then any political nation state elsewhere in the world. The idea that people would want to govern themselves and would be allowed to secede from a body to which they are apportioned and then do so extremely threatening concept. The closer they get to fruition, the greater the likelihood is that the major media in this country will turn its attention to trying to portray them as the worst of political scourges as they represent the worst of what the current administration has come to call radical extremists. Particularly since each of those areas represents people who are earning the largest relative income in the state. they will be portrayed as being as evil as the southern folks in 1860 who did not want to stay and continued funding three quarters of the federal government that wasn’t representing them.
I wish them well.
400 stolen missiles in Benghazi.
They were part of the 20,000 Stingers that were allowed to walk durung the Khadaffi overthrow . The CIA has been running around spreading millions of dollars trying to buy them back before they could be used here in America . Thus far they have managed to ransom about 5000 . The joke here is that those 400 “stolen”ones were supposed to have been bought by the CIA. The “stolen” part is that the Al Qaidans stiffed the CIA and took the money AND the missiles.
Kinda gives the OTHER blood-thirsty religious zealots a bad name.
