    Sorry about the vanity, but this is a must read for conservatives. On the McLaughlin Group this weekend, Lawrence O’Donnell actually stated that the Red states were “welfare” and that the Blue states paid for the Red states. He further urged the Blue states to secede from the Red states. And he was quite serious. In the past few weeks O’Donnell has had foaming-at-the-mouth mental breakdowns, especially on MSNBC, but when he made his comments on the McLaughlin Group, he was quite calm and collected. First, are these the people to whom Bush is “required” to reach out to? Second,...

  • Help California Secede!

    Slightly humorous (well, to conservatives, anyway) site born of post-election radical left bitterness. This site is called "US out of San Francisco." It lists a petition site seeking to allow CA or just SF, I'm not too clear, to secede. Judging by the posts to this site, a lot of people are more than willing to sign the "petition" and let the left coast go on it's own...

    Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union (please refer to the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848). We Texans love y'all, but we'll have to take action if Kerry wins as president over Bush. We'll miss you too. Texas has given all those complainers plenty of time to get used to the results. After seeing the whiners along the campaign route, the folks from Texas are considering taking matters into our own hands. Here is our solution: #1: Let John Kerry become President of the United tates. (all 49 states.) #2:...
  • No State Shall... [New England usurps federal treaty power]

    Six New England states are usurping the federal treaty power in the name of addressing climate change. Neither the President nor the Congress has been willing to defend their constitutionally delegated powers from this usurpation. The result is bad policy and bad precedent. The treaty power belongs to the federal executive and legislative branches. Article 1, section 10 states "No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance or Confederation… No State shall, without the Consent of Congress…enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power…" In August 2001 six New England governors signed an...
