it has long been time for the u.s. to be dissolved into a loose confederation of independant nation-states much like the CIS was formed from the former USSR.

and it should be MUCH more answerable to the UN.

"To anyone that signed one of these petitions. My-way-or-the-highway people like you are the main cause of the problems we are in. The government can only truly shine when both sides work together to come up with the best solutions. Conservatives have great ideas and liberals have great ideas, but it is their coming together that weeds out that bad ones. My suggestion to anyone who is so stubbornly partisan as this is to get the f*ck out of the way. You are a detriment to this great nation."

So my way or the highway then?

studying sewage systems to determine storm readiness

I think that's a GREAT idea. If the south needs to "Rise again", by all means let them go. They can drill, ban abortion, tote guns, what ever they like! Everyone wins!

"It has nothing to do with Obama being re-elected."

I'm not even going to waste my energy on this stupid comment. It did make me laugh though.

"I was really disappointed when Bush won his second term but it wasn't the end of the world. What is wrong with these people?"

It has nothing to do with Obama being re-elected.

"The dog got hypothermia and poo all over the carrier--then he hosed it off and kept going."

That never happened. It was false.

I was really disappointed when Bush won his second term but it wasn't the end of the world. What is wrong with these people? Chill the f*ck out. America is going to be fine. We're going to continue to work our way out of the recession. Plus congress is being forced to come together to produce a balanced budget. With that we can start to reduce the debt.

Cajun, that is not the extent of what FEMA does and I don't think a military org would be looking forward to studying sewage systems to determine storm readiness and making adjustments.
If you said the ACE, maybe but, they act on direction of FEMA on the US mainland.

What kind of a person ties an occupied carrier to the roof of a car?
That dude is just out of touch.

The dog got hypothermia and poo all over the carrier--then he hosed it off and kept going. He's a psychopath. I don't see how people couldn't tell he's a drating lunatic who just wants to WIN.

Never heard him saying, "My father ran for president once and lost...but he did not feel that his failures were something to rue and lament over."

Then he was asked if he shared that sentiment--he said "No."

Hahahaha. He just wants to win. He doesn't care about the process, or the journey. It's about acquiring things.

So here are a few things to point out that the artical doesn't:
*These are petiions submitted by regular citzens, not the state goverment. (Why would they tell the federal goverment they no longer want money?)
* Many of the petions are actually having "validation issues" (Not texas I'm sure) because of being online people from other states are signing for other states - fine print of this old law is it has ot be from indviduals living in the state. Given its like over 100 years old and all.
* NY doesn't really want to secceed - someone from UT I beleive submitted a petion to have NY succeed (for giggles I guess?)

CodeJockey-Wasn't Romney supporter but he did get some things right
-
"Eff FEMA"
-We already have the National Guard to provide order in times of chaos. We DON'T need another agency.
-
"Big Bird"
-The government shouldn't be subsidizing television.
-
"47%"
-Definitely a foot-in-mouth moment, nonetheless this number should be MUCH smaller.
-
"Who let the dogs out"
-I'm pretty sure the dog was in a carrier.

I thought we settled this with the Civil War. The USA is like the mafia, once you are in, you can't leave.

I'm curious to know what federal funding goes to Texas and at what volume.

Xelous
It came down to Romney not convincing people he had a better idea rather, he did a lot of things to convince people he is out of touch:
-"Eff FEMA" (just as a storm is wasting islands then, NJ/NY...)
-"Binder"
-"Big Bird"
-Picks an ultra-conservative running mate
-"47%"
-Spray tan?
-"Who let the dogs out"
-Insincere, mechanical laughter
Hardly a week went by without a foot firmly stuffed in his mouth. Did he even win his home state?

That's interesting as I used to live in Harris County and most of the people I met there were hardcore republicans, maybe they just didn't vote



It also happened in 2008, when Obama won 50.5% (vs 48.8% for McCain) of the County's votes. But, you're right that it's changed. A Democratic candidate for President hadn't won Harris County since 1964 - and that was likely the result of LBJ being from Texas.

Edit: Having said that, I've been here for 18 years, and I haven't found the city's populace to be overtly Republican in that time. Sure, there are some diehards, but I think the growing cosmopolitan nature of the city has changed its consensus political leanings considerably. This was one of the first major cities to elect an openly gay mayor, after all.

There are always petitions for this sort of thing going around. At any given time, you could find numerous petitions on the website for any number of states to secede. Its just that no one cared until Texas got enough signatures that someone had to waste their time to respond to it. Only after did it suddenly become an issue.


I'm not sure this is exactly true. Yes, petitions are always being circulated, but I'd heard of these petitions - in particular - before the TX one had even close to enough votes. I suspect it's the proximity of the election - and the big talk that came before.

Every state with a republican governor petitioned the White House. It means nothing, just republitard grand standing.

As for Texas, there has always been an "Independant Texas" movement since they were forced to end slavery in 1865.

Welp it looks like the republicans in those respective states are ignoring half of their citizenry once again in favor of the loud few.

Even in 'Big Oil' Harris County (Houston), Obama garnered slightly more votes than Romney
