Thank you to all of you who have offered to let me come to your blue state if Texas secedes. I do appreciate it. I guess I’ll have to fight for my homeland.
One of my favorite books is a fiction work titled “A Confederacy of Dunces” by John Kennedy Toole. The book has nothing to do with politics but a lot to do with people entirely detached from reality. Much like today’s Republican Party.
Dana Milbank calls them The Confederacy of Takers.
Red states receive, on average, far more from the federal government in expenditures than they pay in taxes. The balance is the opposite in blue states. The secession petitions, therefore, give the opportunity to create what would be, in a fiscal sense, a far more perfect union.
The ones who want out are the ones who take most.
Now, I’m not saying we should let them go.
Okay, quit booing.
I am saying that they need to be reminded that there are worse things than having a black President. Starving in the cold with no health insurance might be one of them.
They are silly people with silly ideas. Don’t be outraged. Be amused. And when they get on your last nerve, grin to yourself and think how things will get worse for them — once they realize that the Presidency is going to a woman in 4 years.
