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...

I hate Bill Press

Will Trump Stop Us From Voting in November?

Thom plus logo Today is the anniversary of the Chinese government crushing popular dissent at Tiananmen Square.

This anniversary is happening in the midst of a week in which the President of the United States has militarized Washington DC and is calling for the crushing of dissent here in the United States.
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 Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
