In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
Damn that nailed it! I read yesterday that there are now more people receiving Gov. assistance, of one sort or another, than are working. That is why we are borrowing ourselves so far under water that we can no longer even see the light. I am so glad that I found your site all those years ago. Thanks for allowing all of us to share your family's journey!
Excellent column. I have thought this for a long time. I just wish someone would get the ball rolling as it's going to take time, and I'm not sure how much time we have left to get it done. Kay
I agree with your conclusion wholeheartedly. Wish it would happen.
I can see it now....It would be bifurcated seventeen ways from sundown and it would produce The Mother of All Custody Battles.A. McSp
Actually I don't think it would be "bifurcated seventeen ways from sundown" . The producing parts of the nation (the south Midwest and redoubt) are historically conservative and connected to each other. The islands of despotism would be the major cities NYC LA Chicago etc. the interesting thing would be how will the idiots in these areas feed themselves after they lose the areas of the country that sustain their tables and factories?
Prezactomundo. They'd lay claim to whatever they thought they "deserved."Agricultural alimony, as it were. And just wait until folks feel entitled to perpetual "child support."And of course there'd be the visitation issues....yikes.A. McSp
I'm in, wholeheartedly! Where do I sign up!? Can we start the proceedings today? I can be packed and ready to go in 5 minutes!
This is a difficult subject to contemplate. If I'm understanding correctly.I don't want two, three or ten countries carved out of one. I don't want another War Between the States over unity. Or resources, boundaries and coastlines. We desperately need a leader who is not constantly trying to divide us and pit us against each other, before we devolve into civil war simply because we're all so mad at each other. "A nation divided against itself cannot stand."Maybe a cut-up of the nation wouldn't lead to any war. Maybe we could divide the goodies and walk away just so we wouldn't have to talk to each other ever again. I don't want that. Endless quarreling over who gets the Great Lakes? Or the Bakken oil fields? Or the Atlantic coast? Yikes. Then again, the historian Steele (from Ken Burns' documentary, "The Civil War") commented that, for the South, the war never really ended and in some ways is still being fought.So which is better? A nasty divorce or maintenance of an unhappy union? Wish I knew.Thanks for letting me ramble.Just Me
Excellent article! I was hoping we could split all of the states in half rather than the whole country so I wouldn't have to move too far. Unfortunately I live in Taxachusetts so I think our Conservative half would more likely be 1/10th to 9/10th. I am not the party at fault here so I should at least get the house. ;-)God Bless,Janet in MA
This has all ready happened in many ways. Just look at how the fearful leader has thrown fuel on the flames of separation between those that work and those that don't/won't. Divorce is nasty, I know, I lived through one, along with my three kids. However, staying married and living with the insanity and fear and what it was doing to my kids didn't stop me and in the end, we garnered peace, despite the economic devastation. I did everything I could to help the person I married and save marriage, but "he" was gone and the new person didn't want help. It's a mirror of our country right now. So many don't want the free ride to stop, they want more, despite the cries and suffering inflicted upon those that provide through force instead of charity.We do some traveling. We don't visit liberal bastions, spend money in blue states, etc. We do have a couple friends in San Diego county that we sometimes go visit, albeit begrudgingly on my part. It's like an informal separation, with huge spousal and dependent support being required right now. If we can only get before the Judge, sooner rather than later.sidetracksusie
Terrific article!Don F
Very well said.Of course you realize, and others have already said, why the divorce will not be granted: Liberal Land is like a blood-sucking gold-digger. If the workers divorce, the takers are going to very shortly find the well dry and have to figure out how to bite the bullet and do an honest day's work. When the paperwork is served, the fur is going to fly. Yikes, indeed. I don't know what we're going to do. I am not against helping those who are truly down and out through bad luck, illness, even a bad choice. You've heard my welfare stories. But we can't persist in growing a nation of takers who expect it all to be done for them, who expect their maximum effort to consist of "going through the motions."
