Actually, you have it completely

Hoo, Jimbo forgot his pills again. He's seeing states as countries and imagining checkpoints!

You wouldn't know Communism if a statue of Karl Marx fell on you.

I think the first response here is all that needed to be said, really - the welfare states are the ones filled with teabaggers.

OK then, we'll stop sending tax dollars to red states. You know, states in the south which get more from the government than they pay in tax dollars?
Again, what's with this idea that since Obama was reelected, the entire country (except red states, apparently) has become a nation of lazy, government-assistance-receiving bums? Don't tell me that there's not any racism behind it.

Is this Civil War Part 2? Cool.

You lost the Civil War in 1865. Get over it already!

Is there any point in parodying these people anymore?

I live in Florida, we went blue, and we can grow everything we need to eat right here, thank you. Don't expect another orange, but I've grown some fine, spiny cucumbers you might have a use for.

You're just clearly wrong. Most of the "Red States" are in TERRIBLE shape financially, and would be totally bankrupt on their own.

And Canada will stop supplying the USA with wheat, fresh water, electricity, timber, oil, gold, and iron. Seems fair.

support had dried up for your precious Dumbya to get the go-ahead for invading Ira
"You wouldn't know Communism if a statue of Karl Marx fell on you."
There are those who would consider Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery here in the UK as just another Communist Plot...:
Thank you, I'm here all week. Try the Humble Pie, followed by Crow Cupcakes

LOL!! Brohoof! /)
Ya know, I'm kinda hoping those 15 states really do try and secede so the Army will squash them flat and the rest of the country will see them for what they really are. Is that wrong?

@QuasiRodent: ...? I thought the main metal export of Canada was nickel, not gold or iron...Not that I'm sure WHAT we need gold for that copper can't do better.

I think that someone should inform this person that California produces a truly gargantuan amount of food. And it's deeply liberal.

That list changes around some if you use the '12 presidential numbers (e.g. Florida, Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico all went Democratic). But your point still stands.

No fruit and veggies from blue Fl and CA for you, then. I guess you can get your vitamin C from canned rhubarb.
11/12/2012 11:52:25 AM
Hope you don't like apples, cherries or oranges. Those are almost all grown in the blue states. Lots of berry crops too, since they need a mild climate and lots of water.

Since you worship capitalism, you should at least try to understand it: whoever has the most money wins. So long as the Communist Pig States have money, the Free States will sell their produce, or the Communist Pig States will buy food from other countries and the Free States will go broke.
You're not on top, Jimbo. You're on the bottom.
11/12/2012 12:42:42 PM
Screw you, you uncharitable bastard! I hope you get laid off (assuming that you HAVE a job) and never find another job, thus having to depend on others for support...then you'll know how it feels!

Now I really just want to see some socio economic think tank go ahead and make a virtual model of what would happen if these secessionistas got their way.
Even more, I would love to see someone develop a massively multiplayer game along the lines of this theme, with the structure based on said mathematical model.
Let's model for a peaceful division, just to keep it fun, although after establishment of the secessionista nation(s), war would be one of the allowable developments.

What J. James said. California is far and away the nation's largest agricultural producer. If you relied exclusively on the Corn Belt, that's what you'd get. Corn. And a whole lot of soybeans.

You people will be needing a cesspool, so please take Mississippi with you when you go.
