Secessionist Trail of Tears

As the US grew and expanded we took more and more lands from the Native Americans. We marched them out of fertile lands to reservations that could barely support their populations. But it was all Manifest Destiny. We superior white people really knew what was better for all those heathen red and brown people. We set them up on reservations with some of the poorest land and wildlife conditions and called them Native American Nations. Sovereign within the borders of their apartheid like reservations.

So now, there are thousands of people who want to secede from the US. They don't like the fair re-election of our President. They want out.

I say okay. Let's let them out. Let's gather them all up and march them to a dusty, dry useless parcel of desert like we did with the Native Americans and call them a Nation. Sovereign within the borders of the piss-poor lands we give them. And then if we find there is oil or natural gas under that piece of shit land let's find a way to take it back so ExxonMobil and BP can mine it and make a profit.

Yep, let's let them secede onto their own reservations where they don't have to follow US law and can form their own governments.

Seems reasonable to me.

Premature Compromisation

Defined: The ability of Democrats to cave on their positions before even a debate on either floor of congress or committee hearings can take place.

Let's help the Dem's get over this congressional dysfunction.

Can we put Grover in that bathtub

and then throw in a hair dryer?
