    I do not believe for a second 1 in 100 Americans could spot a error in syntax, usage or even know what punctuation is. So may as well dump the whole lot to isolated states.

    Been saying this about Texas for years…

    Thanks, Trudeau. I find that less than amusing.

    Yep, that’s them Texas Tea Baggers we like to point at and giggle.

    Let that be a warning to residents of all the States in the Union – elect morons to office and you will be mocked by Trudeau.

    Um, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Remedial Kindergarten is in Texas — which I think proves the point.

    Besides, if you are very lucky, you will see its namesake taking classes once it opens…

    “… WHEN … the productive sector of American society moves to the … separatist states ….”


    Sorry, but you’ve got it reversed, Tucci.


    First: Most, virtually all, wealth is inherited, not produced — by the leisure class, e.g. Paris Hilton. The exceptions — the Bill Gateses and the Steve Jobses — are rare indeed.


    Second: This wealthy leisure class rides on the backs of the working class, and digs in the spurs, such as, by paying only minimum wage and by denying them as much as 40 working hours per week in order to deny them their benefits. (Read Thorsten Veblen.)


    Third: You missed Trudeau’s point: The separatists who wrote the petition are the ones who are illiterate. And the 120,000 Texans who signed it are the ignorant, misinformed, low-IQ folk who (according to Earl) dis-improve the gene pool.

    I wanted to read the petition to see if the grammar etc. is as bad “as all that”, but all I get is an error messages saying my IP address isn’t good enough. Maybe it’s because I’m in a foreign country??

    While I do not desire any state to leave the union, please consider that California (which has been the butt of the conservatives here for ages) is not only the number one economy in the US by a large margin, it is also the eighth largest economy in the world!!

    And we normal patriotic Americans in California, also have had to put up with insane separatists of our own!!

    “And we normal patriotic Americans in California, also have had to put up with insane separatists of our own!!”


    I’ve lived in California nearly all of my adult life, and I agree.


    Problem is, folk like Tucci are apparently so inebriated with rightwing “talking points” that they don’t seem to be able to face fact-based, evidence-based reason. Oh where, oh where, has the “intelligent conservative”, such as Wm. F. Buckley, Jr., gone? Seems like all we have now are buffoons like Karl Rove, Dick Morris, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, . . . . On and on and on.

    You are hilarious! Are these the liberal parasites who live in the states that give more to the government than they get? What are we all going to do when the “separatist states” (which receive much more than they send) leave?

    Certain Texans have been screaming about seceding for many years. Let them go! I’m tired of hearing them brag about how great they are all the time and how the rest of the country stinks.

    Thank you for the tip. I had managed to find it myself since my last post. (Going to Wikipedia worked better that an Internet search.) It probably is the right one; the number of signers seems to be about right.
    I don’t know about “syntax and usage”, and see no blatant punctuation errors. It is badly written though… maybe to try to cover up a lack of logic and connection to reality.

    “The very best argument that getting rid of Texas will dramatically improve the Gene Pool for the rest of the country can be said with just two names!
    George W. Bush
    Rick Perry”


    Keep in mind that Dubya’s genes originated in Kennebunkport, Maine. Lysenkoist arguments aside, his contribution to the Gene Pool can’t be blamed on Texas.


    Perry, now that’s another matter…
