Is Dead

“This is going to be either the longest year in the history of man, or the shortest.”

There is a  technology investor named Tim Draper  who has come up with the idea of cutting Kalifornia up into six separate States.  This man, all by himself, thought up this masterpiece of solution.  Did I mention he is a technology investor?

Well, below is a map of his six States.  Take a close look, and maybe (just maybe) the logic will become evident to you.  This man, Tim, is simply brilliant. 

His reasoning?

In an email, Draper says there are five key reasons he’s pushing the initiative:

“1. It is about time California was properly represented with Senators in Washington. Now our number of Senators per person will be about average.
2. Competition is good, monopolies are bad. This initiative encourages more competition and less monopolistic power. Like all competitive systems, costs will be lower and service will be better.
3. Each new state can start fresh. From a new crowd sourced state flower to a more relevant constitution.
4. Decisions can be more relevant to the population. The regulations in one new state are not appropriate for another.
5. Individuals can move between states more freely.”

Did I say he is a technology investor?  Did I say he is brilliant?  I mean… Those sound like some pretty dog-gone significant reasons to split up a State.  Six ways.  I mean… it certainly makes sense to someone.  This got on Fox Business News, after all…

This is getting beyond stupid.  In a separate, but related, story I saw today on Fox Business News, the new concept of TSA screening of your property (your bags, clothes, underwear, pistols, ammo, knives, and C4) at the new shopping malls we will all be going to in the future.  That’s right!  The next time you have your wife taking you to catch a flight, you can just ask her to whip into the local mall so that you can do some shopping.  

“Honey, can you just whip into the mall on our way to the airport?  I suddenly got the urge to go shopping,”

Not only that.  When you get there, you can load up your bags and cart them into the mall with you.  (I mean, why wouldn’t you take your suitcases and carry-ons with you when you go shopping?) 

Now, here’s the really neat part.  Are you ready???

While you’re there, you can just drop off your bags at the local TSA booth (conveniently located in a lobby) while you go shopping!  When you come back?  You’ll be ‘all ready to go!’  All you have to do when you get to the airport is ‘climb on your plane’!  

Just think!  TSA in your shopping malls.  How neat!

How convenient!

Of course, you won’t be able to take those slacks you just bought at the mall.  But that’s OK!  You can take them with you on your next trip.

Did I say ole’ Tim is brilliant?   Well?  How bout those mall designers?

We are living in an ‘insane’ world.

How about, No California?

    The way he’s divided California East-West means, based on 2012 voting, that only the burgundy one West of the yellow one has a chance of going republican. So 6 Californias would give us 10 dem senators and 2 republicans in a best case scenario.

      Uh huh. They would love that. Unfortunately, most of California can’t multiply or count that high. I mean, we’re talking two full hands here.

    I’m all for this. It’ll educate the rest of America about the only solution to the disaster that is USA; good ole fashion secession.

    At the very least it’ll inspire IL to secede from Chicago, NY from NYC and so on.

      The migration patterns are already established. How long do you think this will buy you?

    My idea is a wee bit crude but I was thinking maybe a series of underground explosions beneath her borders to trigger a mega earthquake and Californicate would slide far out into the Pacific (half way to Hawaii maybe?) going the way of the legendary Atlantis thus providing habitation and sustenance for the creatures of the deep.

    I nixed my previous idea because the jet stream would have caused the fallout to cover the rest of the country. I freely admit I did have to struggle with the pros/cons of that decision for some time.

    Sorry my friends!!

    But I have taken a liking to your idea militialaw! However I’m wondering if any of the inhabitants of California possess the mental faculties to enable them to process the necessary paperwork.

      Hell! We’re getting bombed already by Japan. The fallout from Fukishima is probably going to kill all of ’em anyway! And you don’t hear a word about what’s being done about it all. Nothing is. Not by us, anyway.

        Amazing isn’t it?! The regime recently shut down a lead smelting operation in Missouri because it is “harmful” to humans. People along the west coast may start glowing in the dark any time yet nothing is being said by the “tree huggers” about Fukishima.

          They protested the pipeline, but not a word from any of them on this. What may be the greatest environmental disaster in history!

    Yeah you’re right Soffitrat but we both know the reason for that! The pipeline protest was meant to cause further damage to the economy or at least prevent any chance of the “road to recovery”. This indicates to me they don’t give a rats rear end about a disaster of potentially epic proportions. One would think they would be screaming to high Heaven for the death/damage it will cause. You know…baby seals and endangered plankton…that sort of stuff!

    Possibly they are thinking this may work in their favor somehow? We have seen time after time they always know something that we aren’t yet privy to! I don’t know ‘rat, but time will tell.

      No No! I agree with you. There are a few fellows out there (Kaliforia) that you can research if you really want to know what’s going on. The more you learn, the more you will believe. Good luck. They are both foreign & domestic.
