It seems a fed-up Northerner has posted quite a funny and poignant indictment of the country's "red states."



 

Another good letter

Dear Red States,

We're ticked off at the way you've treated California and we've decided we're leaving. We intend to form our own country and we're taking the other Blue States with us.

In case you aren't aware that includes Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast.

We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of New California.

To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.

We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get Elliot Spitzer.

You get Ken Lay.

We get the Statue of Liberty.

You get OpryLand.

We get Intel and Microsoft.

You get WorldCom.

We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs.

You get Alabama.

We get two-thirds of the tax revenue.

You get to make the red states pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's we get a bunch of happy families.

You get a bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro choice and anti war and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once.

If you need people to fight ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home.

We wish you success in Iraq and hope that the WMDs turn up but we're not willing to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand we will have firm control of:

-80% of the country's fresh water
-90% of the pineapple and lettuce
-92% of the nation's fresh fruit
-95% of America's quality wines
-90% of all cheese,
-90% of the high tech industry
-Most of the US low sulfur coal
-All living redwoods, sequoias and condors
-All the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States you will have to cope with:

-88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs
-92% of all US mosquitoes
-nearly 100% of the tornadoes
-90% of the hurricanes
-99% of all Southern Baptists
-virtually 100% of all televangelists
-Rush Limbaugh
-Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

We're taking the good pot too.

You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico.
