Here is a little humor along the lines of a few previous posts (not mine), although from a slightly different perspective.
Our letter to the RED States
Dear Red States:
We in the Blue States have decided to leave the United States
and form our own country . That includes California, Hawaii,
Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois
and the rest of the Northeast.
We believe this split will be beneficial to all, especially to
the people of our new country, the Enlightened States of
America (E.S.A). To sum up briefly:
You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.
We get stem cell research and the best beaches.
We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal
and Todd Akin.
We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand.
We get Intel and Microsoft. You get Walmart.
We get Stanford. You get West Virginia .
We get 85 percent of America 's venture capital and
entrepreneurs. You get Alabama .
We get two-thirds of the tax revenue. You get Arkansas.
Since our blue aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than
the red states, we get happy families. You get single moms.
With the Blue States we have 80% of the country's fresh water,
90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of all fresh fruit, 95%
of quality wines, 90% of all cheese, 90% percent of the high
tech industry, all living redwoods, 90% of all top rated
universities plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Princeton, Cal Tech
With the Red States you get 88% of all obese Americans and
their future health care costs, 92% of all mosquitoes, nearly
100% of all tornadoes, 90% of hurricanes, 100% of all
televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University and 99% of
We're taking the good weed too. You can have that crap they
grow in Mexico .
Citizens of the Enlightened States of America
