Laughable Right Wing Threat of the Day

As reported at Little Green Footballs:

"Rural Colorado county commissioners are pursuing a plan to splinter from the state and create a new one in the aftermath of a legislative session they say runs counter to their way of life."

Someone needs to explain to these jackasses that the rest of us don't care if they splinter from the entire earth (which they have largely done already, anyway) but that doesn't give them the right to declare that they are a new State.  The rest of us get a voice on that one.  After all, if it's that easy, Green Eagle is splitting off from his State and declaring his own residence to be a new State.  We're then going to send Green Eagle's two sons to Washington as our new Senators.  Finally, a way to get them out of the house for six years.

These types sure do like their secession talk. Maybe we should try to persuade them all that they'd be best off absenting themselves from the whole "tyrannical" country and homesteading somewhere where they can cling to that "way of life" and indulge their Galt's Gulch fantasies. I understand quite a lot of Antarctica is available.

I think they would feel more at home in Somalia or Pakistan.

Guys, they want it like a young Earth creationist wants to use power from coal that took millions of years to form.

They want to use America, but they don't want to acknowledge the reality of what makes it, they don't want to be loyal to it, and they don't want to pay for it.

It's the basic nature of modern conservatism... wanting something for nothing.

Magpie, it may take millions of years to make coal in Australia, but it only takes six thousand years here in America, particularly in Texas and Oklahoma. That's because we are the land of the free, hoorah, where everything works according to the Bible. Now you know why America is so much better than anywhere else.

Oh, and they hate us for our freedom. Did I remember to mention that lately?
