Just to show what the Right Wing thinks of those of us who don't agree with it

The author of this lovely number says he is attempting to be satiric in the second paragraph of his essay.

In this case, he violates the two laws of satire:

1) If you are trying to be satiric, SAYING you are being satiric defeats the purpose
2) Satire should be funny.

The article is another in the endless stream of "America is better off without all of them city folk" that seems to be the latest bastion of the right wing after seeing that no one who lives in an urban area and has a decent education voted with them. The killer quote to me is:

BUSH USA is predominantly white; devoutly Christian (mostly Protestant); openly, vigorously heterosexual; an open land of single-family homes and ranches; economically sound (except for a few farms), but not drunk with cyberworld business development, and mainly English-speaking, with a predilection for respectfully uttering "yes, ma'am" and "yes, sir."

I love how he discounts the internet and technology in his rant. Yep, you're right, the damn internet is the cause of so many problems. If only we could get rid of it and go back to the good old days of nothing but white people, darkies knew their place and people were polite.

Yet, if you watch shows like "The Daily Show", "Real Time With Bill Maher" and other discussion shows not on Faux news, thje right wing guy is the one who is yelling at the host, calling people names, or challenging people to deuls. The right wing is a bunch of angry, sore winners, and they are dancing around like the biggest guy in 4th grade when he scores a basket. Every time I have been cut off in traffic, it's been by someone with a Bush sticker on their bumper or a Jesus fish on their overly huge vehicle, using up the resources God gave them. Right Wing radio is the one where the host call people names, insult their opponants, and generally spead anger and hate.

I agree with him, though. Let's LET the states that voted for Kerry leave. They are the ones with the fastest growing businesses, the science that is keeping things moving forward and pay most of the taxes. You can have Mississippi's school system, Texas's air and he industry of Arkansas. Good luck finding a college that actually takes time out from prayer for a moment of science. Oh, and with all of the red states off the dole (states who voted for Bush get more Federal money than they pay into the system), maybe we can have a decent health care system that doesn't make CEOs rich. You can go start fights with all the Moslem countries, and we'll sell you the weapons (since our colleges develop the technology that makes them).

You can bet that if this scenario did happen, the red states would be a third would country within 20 years. And then begging the rest of us for medicines that they can't develop....and I would love to say "Why nto just pray for a cure. It worked for Lazerous, didn't it?"
