  •  though about the constitution.... (0+ / 0-)

    If we opened up a Const. Convention, we would get Utah'd to death.  The corporados and the neocons from sea to dying sea would be all over this state like ants on a picnic.

    At very minimum we have to keep out-of-state money the hell out of here.  Whatever out of state money we might get from the progressive side, would be drowned in a sea of it from the righties.  

    The thing about splitting the state is, it will draw the coastal righties inland and inland progressives to the coast.  Which is very good for another reason.

    I'll tell you a seekret:-)  Look at the maps of what happens to the inland empire when the sea level rises.  

    Good for us the righties don't believe in climate change.  They're going to have plenty of water on their hands.  Salt water.  

    Hey, at least they won't be landlocked!:-)

    And the net result of that will be to drive a lot of them even further inland, for example to Arizona where they'll bake in the desert, or to Utah where they'll ...get to watch plenty of p0rn since that's what people in Utah seem to do a lot of.

        So I guess we'll find out who becomes a disaster refugee first.  

        Don't mind me, I'm a doomer, and frankly sometimes the only thing to do about the expected catastrophes in our lifetimes, is to try to make a crass joke about one or more of them.
