WASHINGTON (CBS DC) -- A new White House petition has been launched calling for the state of Alaska to secede from the U.S. and rejoin Russia....The petition -- called "Alaska back To Russia" -- has nearly 30,000 signatures after being created March 21 by S.V. of Anchorage.

The petitioner does not explain or provide any reason why Alaska should rejoin Russia, but just states: "Vote for secession of Alaska from the United States and joining Russia."

The petition, which is strangely worded, describes how Alaska was settled and populated by native Russians.

"First visited Alaska August 21, 1732, members of the team boat "St. Gabriel, under the surveyor Gvozdev and assistant navigator I. Federov during the expedition Shestakov and DI Pavlutski 1729-1735 years," the petition states.

As strange as this may sound, in today's setting, it is understandable.

However, if Bush were president, he would label this as a product of some "evil doer." "Your either with us or agin us." I suspect someone is looking at a way to persecute them under the Espionage Act, or Treason.

The sad thing is the real "Traitors" are those that brought the Patriot Acts and NDAA into law.

How embarassing - I should have thought of that but I was looking the other way.

I was thinking how to get the Red States to recede and rejoin the U.S.

Remember when President Obama was asked how many States their were and he spoke 56. At that time everyone laughed, but its been said he quoted now many Muslim Counties their were when he came in and strange but true there are now 56 (Thank to Putin) counties under the Marxist rule.

Stop concentrating on just Obama, you are missing the overall big picture. You can't see the forrest for the trees!

First Texas, now Alaska...

Probably because they know Russia will allow oil drilling in ANWAR. Even Bush couldn't "get 'er done" there.

GM Shows Why We Need Medicare for All

Thom plus logo General Motors just pulled healthcare for 50,000 workers. There are some Democratic candidates suggesting that people love their health insurance companies, but this calculated move by a giant corporation that you and I helped bail out proves that employer sponsored healthcare is just another tool to control workers.
