Thanks Sacha for sending this too me.  Hey I would have been happy with just New England seceding!

Dear Red States:

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 California, 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 the Statue of Liberty
. You get Dollywood. We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom. We get
Harvard. You get Ole’ Miss. 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. 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

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent of
the country’s fresh water, more than 90 percent of the pineapple and
lettuce, 92 percent of the nation’s fresh fruit, 95 percent of America’s
quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners), 90 percent of
all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the U.S.
low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy
and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford, CalTech and MIT. With the Red
States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88 percent of all
obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92 percent of all
U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the tornadoes, 90 percent of the
hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100 percent of
all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the
University of Georgia. We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

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

Finally, we’re taking the good pot, too.

Peace out,

Blue States
