There was a problem reporting this.
They have seceded from Reality quite some time ago. Seceding from the Union is a minor point.
If those states secede from the rest of the country, they would immediately turn into a third world country, and be screaming for foreign aid! Plus, what would happen to all of the minorities living in this foreign country… Will they re-institute slavery?
Those red states get back more from the Federal Government than they pay! The blue states with the higher per capita income per family, finance the red ones! I like Linda’s art and her keen insight!
Right you are. In KY, We get back $1.51 for every dollar of taxes we send Washington! Yahoos have no idea what they’re talking about, but we knew that already, didn’t we?
We do know that as reality . As Herbert says they have seceded from reality. I believe they are vainly searching for a meaning in their lives . The Republicans give them false illusions and they can’t reconcile the fact that they are being lied to , with what the perceive as expressions of honesty.
State-Journal.com’s comments forum is for civil, constructive dialogue about news topics in our community, state, nation and world. We emphasize “civil” at a time when Americans, in the words of the current president, need to “turn down the temperature” of political debates. The State Journal will do its part by more carefully policing this forum. Here are some rules that all commenters must agree to follow:
Absolutely no attacks on other commenters, on guest columnists or on authors of letters to the editor. Our print and online opinion pages are sacred marketplaces of ideas where diverse viewpoints are welcome without fear of retribution. You may constructively critique the ideas and opinions of others, but name-calling, stereotyping and similar attacks are strictly prohibited.
Leeway will be given for criticism of elected officials and other public figures, but civility is essential. If you focus your criticism on ideas, opinions and viewpoints, you will be less likely to run afoul of our commenting rules.
Keep comments focused on the article or commentary in question. Don’t use an article about the Frankfort City Commission, for example, to rant about national politics.
Hyperpartisanship that suggests anyone on the other side of an issue or anyone in a particular particular party is evil is not welcome. If you believe that all Democrats are socialists intent on destroying America or that all Republicans are racists, there are lots of places on the internet for you to espouse those views. State-Journal.com is not one.
No sophomoric banter. This isn’t a third-grade classroom but rather a place for serious consumers of news to offer their reactions and opinions on news stories and published commentary.
No consumer complaints about individual businesses. If you’ve had a bad experience with a private business or organization, contact the Better Business Bureau or the government agency that regulates that business. If you believe the actions of a private business are newsworthy, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider whether news coverage is merited.
Absolutely no jokes or comments about a person’s physical appearance.
No promotion of commercial goods or services. Our outstanding staff of marketing consultants stands ready to help businesses with effective advertising solutions.
If you state facts that have not been previously reported by The State Journal, be sure to include the source of your information.
No attacks on State Journal staff members or contributing writers. We welcome questions about, and criticism of, our news stories and commentary but not of the writers who work tirelessly to keep their community informed. Corrections of inaccurate information in news stories should be sent to email@example.com rather than posted in the comments section.
