Blue state-red state divorce? I'm all for it!

It's time for a blue state-red state divorce. (Eric Hanson / For The Times)

Hey Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and the rest of the Confederacy!

Ya'll want to secede from the US? I'm all for it! 'N' ya'll lucky Abe Lincoln ain't 'round ta kick ya in yer wide white confederate ass. Jus' sayin'.

Paul VanDevelder lays out terms for the divorce in this recent article posted at the LA Times. Check it out. He's not only spot on, he's hilarious.

Paul VanDevelder is a journalist, screenwriter and the author, most recently, of "Savages and Scoundrels: The Untold Story of America's Road to Empire through Indian Territory."

I believe the phrase is, "Good riddance to bad rubbish."

Pretty good. But just as Texas has its Austin, California has its ... Alturas?

JD, that's one way to put it. And when the going gets rough in the New Republic of Texas, it would be these same putzes trying to sneak into the US at night over the wall they built only to be stopped by their own border patrol.

Don, right and I suppose every family has one. Mine does.

That was fun! I read the LA Times, but missed that one. :)
