Red States versus Blue States!

I'm still trying to sort through the results of this election!   To say that I remain in a state of shock...and will ignore polling results in the future, is putting it mildly.   Damn!   Hello FiveThrityEight!   I thought you were the perfect gospel!

I originally posted an item about red states versus blue states back in 2012!   Someone else made a post entitled, "Dear Red States" and it also showed up on the Internet back in 2012, (see below).   I still think it is "post worthy"!   Hello Wisconsin & Michigan???   What happened to you two?   Did some of you "Blue Folks" flip or flop?   Let me know when "The Donald" opens those coal mines and begins to bring back those jobs or starts bringing his clothing line back from China to the US of A!!!

Bottom my opinion, I think the rural voters of America listened to the voice of change..."The Donald"!   I think they felt disenfranchised.   Many are unemployed or may feel that they're under-employed & unrepresnted...and no one was listening to them...except "The Donald"...from his 5th Avenue Penthouse in Trump Tower!

On the other hand...urban America may have thought otherwise.   There are no coal mines in urban America and few, if any, manufacturing jobs!   However, there are a lot of urbanites who are college educated and are comfortable with their immigrant population.
Did I mention Brexit?

So, below, is the old "Dear Red States" post that was floating around the Internet back in 2012!   Did I mention Calexit?

Here ya' go!

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 Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all of 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 Elliot Spitzer.   You get Ken Lay.
  • 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.   You get a bunch of single moms.
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.   They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home.   We do wish you success in Iraq, and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent 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, MIT, and University of California.

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 than we lefties.

By the way, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico.   (my comment...until "The Donald builds the wall)!

Peace out,

It really concerns me how much I believe this country is so divided never before!
