Wyoming = Lord of the Flies Society?

republican imagesRepublican leaders in a South Carolina county have censured U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for working with Democrats on a climate bill and other legislation.  Fratricide reigns in the Republican Party.  Maybe they should just split out a state somewhere - maybe Wyoming - and create their own little Libertarian Lord of the Flies society, so we can all watch it deteriorate into Somalia-like conditions without having it inflicted on the rest of us?

Montana is way too nice. Now Texas might be perfect. When the Lord of the Flies society finally starts to crumble we can let mexico take it over.

Well, if it's got to be Texas then you have to leave Austin protected. This town is way to cool to believe that it's in the middle of this mess

Wyoming's fine, as long as they don't get Teton county:

A . Jackson's the only "liberal" part of the state.
B. the Republitards don't deserve the some of the best snowboarding pow on the face of the earth.

...on second thought, maybe they can have Snow King.

Wyoming certainly seems logical, since Lord Cheney hails from there, and he would not have to relocate again...like that pesky 8 years of being in Washington. Texas makes more sense to me, though. We could then build that border wall and surround the new country with military guard to their north. Lou Dobbs will go completely ballistic having to watch out for Liberals to the north and Mexicans to the south...AND have to pay for their own border protection. I am pretty sure we could come up with a program to relocate the cool of Austin...probably quicker than we will see Health Insurance Reform...

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
