    Independence from Disney? The Millne family was bought out ages ago. Then again, the ageless Pooh can probably wait another 12 years till 2026 when he’s granted automatic independence. Scotland’s been waiting 307 years…

    I doubt it would be a republic though: the royal whatsists never give up anything if they can help it. Did you know they STILL use the title the Pope gave H VIII shortly before he ‘seceded’

    Let’s hear it for the new and improved Corporate Scotland. If this passes.

    For reasons that escape us all, the English said the Scots could vote on whether (or not) they wanted Great Britain to remain Great Britain (as opposed to Medium-sized Britain). I blame the Canooks, who keep giving the same permission to the French, who threaten, get concessions, and then vote ‘Non!’


    But this is giving people ideas all over. The Catalans and the Basques. The Eastern Ukrainians. The Texans. And who knows who else.


    And it’s all, ultimately, the Canook’s fault.

    Quebec was the first thing I thought of when I heard of the Scottish independence vote. As much as the independence supporters want it, I don’t think they’ve thought it through.

    “TO understand political power right, and derive it from its original, we must consider, what state all men are naturally in, and that is, a state of perfect freedom to order their actions, and dispose of their possessions and persons, as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of nature, without asking leave, or depending upon the will of any other man.”

    Will the Queen require a visa to go to her castle (lands) in Scotland?

    So long as Texass pays the United States for all the federal land, buildings, infrastructure, et. al. I say, let ’em secede. And then when they are sovereign land I say refuse any “foreign aid.” Hey, they wanted to be left alone, allowed to do whatever they wanted with no obligation or responsibility to the rest of the states, let them be left alone.

    Nice quote. Rings pretty does it not? But it fails to understand the interconnectedness of all people in today’s society. And to be left truly alone, truly to direct one’s destiny, disposition of their possessions and possess “freedom” does require the will of others. Sort of that whole "Your freedom to swing your arm ends at the tip of my nose. No matter how large or how small your property you must observe and so does your neighbor, the property line. Whether your property be land, your house, your car, your self. I don’t know if I explained myself adequately, but if you think about it existentially I think you will see my point. Thank you.

    Yep. Paul Krugman has pointed out how dangerous it would be for Scotland to remain on the British pound — Spain found out the pitfalls of having a currency that your government cannot control to initiate recovery from economic slumps. The Euro gave conservatives in other countries the power to destroy Spain’s labor force, and giving it a double-dip recession, all in the name of “austerity.”

    They’d probably declare war on the U.S. and try to annex Oklahoma…..

    I don’t think the Texans are actually going anywhere, unfortunately. If they took their 36 electoral votes and left, we would never have another Republican president. With that incentive, when I first heard this I emailed my relatives in Texas and asked if they needed help packing. They still haven’t responded.
