Time to break up California?

Time to break up California?

Sept. 6, 2012

Looks like Canada is breaking up. Reported RT.com:

“The separatist Parti Quebecois has won Quebec’s regional elections and will form a new government there, once again raising the possibility of a referendum on independence being held in Canada’s French-speaking province.

“Canadian Broadcasting Corp and the Canadian Press reported that Parti Quebecois (PQ) won or were leading in nearly 60 districts, just short of the 63 needed for a majority government….

“Crowds of jubilant PQ followers, cheered and waved flags as election results indicated their party was heading back to power after nine years of Liberal Party rule.

“Should PQ win a majority it will make it easier for them to call a referendum on independence. Quebec has held two referendums in the past — one in 1980 and another in 1995- with the last narrowly rejecting independence from Canada.”

Canada obviously is at least two countries. Quebec is French-speaking; the rest of the country mostly English-speaking, eh. The people and cultures are different.

Time also for California to split up. Languages aside, the differences between, say, Orange County and San Francisco are larger than those between Quebec and Alberta. Why should John Wayne County have to be jammed together with Nancy Pelosi City? It just doesn’t make sense.

Here’s how the state should be broken up into new states:

1. Orange County is renamed John Wayne State of Freedom. Like New Hampshire, no sales or income taxes. All public schools privatized. All controls and taxes on cigarettes removed. Medical marijuana is banned, but medical bourbon (Wayne’s drink) is subsidized. State song: “That’ll Be the Day” (based from one of the Duke’s lines).

2. San Francisco becomes Nancy Pelosi State. State income taxes raised to 50 percent. Cigarettes banned. Medical marijuana is manditory for all ailments. However, farming regulations prevent anything, including marijuana, from being grown in the city. Socialized medicine on the British model is imposed. State song: “San Franciscan Nights.”

3. Los Angeles County becomes Hollywood State. The governor is chosen by movie box-office results. State income tax is 20 percent; except for anyone in the entertainment industry, for which it’s zero. State song: “L.A. Woman.”

4. San Diego becomes a federal protectorate under the Department of the Navy. U.S. Marines from Camp Pendleton replace local police. State song: “Surfin’ USA.”

5. Inland Empire becomes Bob Hope State, after the longtime resident of Palm Springs. The state income tax starts out at 4 percent, but will be cut later. Stand-up comics don’t pay it. State song: “Thanks for the Memories.”

6. Bakersfield and the general area around it becomes Haggard State, after Merle Haggard, one of the creators of the great Bakersfield Sound in country music. No state income tax for descendants of Okies. Everyone else pays 3 percent. State song: “I’m an Okie from Muskogee.

7. Northern California becomes Ganja State. Top export: medical marijuana. State income tax rate is 15 percent, but nobody pays it because tax authorities always are high. State song: “Don’t Bogart that Joint.”

    Dividing the state into two separate states of NorCal and SoCal couldn’t hurt since the state in its present boundaries is too hard to manage for any single state government.

    Or perhaps the state should simply declare itself a separate republic.

    there are major issues in California and dividing it would solve a lot of issues. A North and South devision at the tehachapi pass with San Francisco area as an out lying territory would be great. We could speak english, educate our children and be fiscally responsible. Water sales to southern california would eliminate the need for a state tax. I’m ready, let’s vote!

    It sounds like it was a slow news day and you had nothing better to do than criticize the entire state. Yes, every section has it’s faults and issues that should be brought to light, but doing a one liner and giving us a character and a song is just playing, not reporting.

    I am for splitting this state. Anything to get away from Jerry Brown would be a positive move right now. Didn’t anyone pay attention to what he did in his past terms at Governor in this state? I just don’t understand why this man is even in this position right now. He is giving away our money to the illegal aliens while other borders states are cracking down on all of them and no one in this state seems to care. What is wrong with you people?

    They impeached Gray Davis for trying to raise the tax on license plates too much. When Arnold took over, he did the same thing and got away with it. California is broke, says Mr. Brown, but he’s giving every dime he can get his hands on to the illegal alien or his buddies in Sacramento. Why can’t we impeach him and put someone in the Governor’s office that will do the right thing? So Mr. Seller, why don’t you write a report about that?

    Rex has the correct solution! Get rid of the lice infested RAGWUS cabal and California regains its sanity. 🙂

    Just hold on a minute. I live in the northern central valley and I do NOT want to be in the same state as San Francisco.
