Secession petitions reach 50.

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/what-seceding-from-the-us-will-cost-you-2012-11-16

"The White House this week confirmed that residents in all fifty states had submitted petitions asking to leave the union. Will the last one left please turn out the lights?

Residents in seven states, all in the former Confederacy, submitted more than 30,000 signatures each — enough that some hapless bureaucrat or intern will now have to take a look at their petitions"

" if you secede you will end up paying more in taxes than you do now, and you will get fewer government services. Forget the so-called “fiscal cliff.” We’re talking about a fiscal Death Star. Your economies will go into recession"

1. Which would leave us with "The United States of the District of Columbia" - and no states.

 

The WH response is simple: "Fuck no."

3. Republicans are in a sad minority in CA, so eff them if they want CA to secede.

They have ZERO say so in the State of California so that alone tells me all that petition signing is nothing but a bunch of sour grapes and a heavy case of sore-loserism for this anti-patriots.

6. although we have brethren in Texas,

I was going to recommend they all move there but upon further review, let em join together

and move to Idaho, or North Dakota.

Hell, everyday the stupid gets thicker and thicker.
