This is not meant to be taken seriously, but it is kind of a reply to RW005g on Jonathan's post:
Seriously RW, I believe what Jonathan and I were engaging in was a little mindless chest beating for the sake of a few grins. However- We aren't talking about a “Southern” “Insurrection”
The COUNTY vote map is:
Which, to me, looks a whole lot more like the US Coast vs. the Heartland.
Take Ohio ( where I live)
See the isolated blue county in the western part of the state?
That's Montgomery County, otherwise known as Dayton.
Right beside that is the county I live in. Greene. Otherwise known as Wright Patterson Air Force base. Note that it is Red. ( Deep, Deep, Red, if you want to know the exact hue)
That's because the military personnel who operate and maintain the fleet of F-22's and C-17's there, do not like being “led” by a murderous coward who seems to place pounding his chest about OSAMA IS DEAD!!!! Above the security of the people who killed Osama, (a Seal team which was targeted and many of their members killed because of the Big O”s chest thumping.)
After Benghazi, and Patreaus “Falling on his Sword” for the prez, ( Actually he was dropped on it from a fair height)
The Military likes the prez even less ( if that were possible)
Now in the similar situation of Germany in the 1930's , the Chancellor there had an army of brown shirted thugs who actually outnumbered the Wehrrmacht. Obama hasn't yet been able to build up the DHS, TSA and SS to such levels ( Though they are stockpiling ammunition).
See the Red Counties that with the exception of the Urban areas of Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland make up the rest of the Ohio? They raise Corn, Soybeans, Wheat, Beef, Hogs and Soldiers. ( Most rural Ohio counties have children who have either returned from the cities or joined the military in order to have something to eat.)
Understand, the Red counties don't need to “invade” the Blue counties, the Blue counties have nothing we need. We will gladly ship you all of our Lawyers, Politicians and, Stock Brokers. The Red Counties will just decide to cast off their chains and declare independence from the Blue counties
Sorry we can't get along. Take Care. Have a good life.
I would opine that, without the Red Counties to supply Food and Energy, the Blue counties are pretty far up the creek without a paddle store in sight.
Now, when Obama orders the “folks” at Wright Pat to start flying missions against the “Insurrectionists” in rural Ohio, ( Or Louisiana) how do you think they will take that?
I don't really want to find out, and neither should you.
You can call us the "MsUnited Reds of America"
You can be the newly minted "Peoples Republic Of NewBosWashAngeles". You need to think real hard about “Keeping it in your pants” when dealing with us.We don't think of you "that way" anymore.
The difference between Rape and Rapture is consent.
We've withdrawn ours
Let's just try hard to stay “Friends”, OK?
