Hedonia, or "What would our country look like if the Northeast seceded?"
And I'm with jayinbmore--until then, tell them to stay the eff out of our lives.
Now I'll break one of the bloggers' ten commandments: Thou Shalt Not Post An IM, You Lazy Bastard.
Someoneelse: For a while I was devising ways for the district to succeed from the union, but I'm starting to enter the acceptance phase.
disappearingink: hahaha! I'm all for secession. Did you see that nice, contiguous blue block of states in the Northeast?
Someoneelse: All the borders were conveniently touching. Would make for a tidy, new republic.
disappearingink: What will we call it? We could take a note from Alan Keyes and call it "Hedonia."
disappearingink: 1000 square miles of rampant atheism, homosexuality, weak-kneed pacificism, and much worse. what fun!
disappearingink: our official language could be French, and our flag could be plain white.
Someoneelse: A blue utopia, with taxes on everyone... even the rich!
disappearingink: Yes, 50% flat tax, with a little box you can check that says, "I'm so rich, and I like taxes so much, that I'm going to pay 80%."
Someoneelse: I'm telling you, I think we may be on to something. I was thinking Canada but this is much more convenient.
disappearingink: And our capital won't be in the contiguous blue states. Hollywood. Michael Moore Secretary of Fine Arts.
disappearingink: Tommy Chong, Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Someoneelse: Obviously most of our country (at least 51%) is residing in a parallel universe. It's time we created one of our own!
Someoneelse: And in this country, Clinton can be president... again!
disappearingink: Wow, what a liberal heaven!
Someoneelse: I don't know why I didn't start thinking outside the box (and the 50 states) before.
disappearingink: I think it's a worthwhile heuristic starting point for the Democratic party to begin rebuilding itself: "What would our country look like if the Northeast seceded?"
Someoneelse: For all intents and purposes, it's where they should probably start.
