    From Facebook...This started the rounds in 2009 with several ressurections over the years

    DIVORCE AGREEMENT

    Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists, and Obama supporters, et al:

    We have stuck together since the late 1950s for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

    Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

    Here is our separation agreement:

    Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by land mass, each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets, since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

    —We don't like redistributive taxes, so you can keep them.

    --You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.

    --Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military.

    --We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar, and bio-diesel.

    --You can keep Oprah, Whoopi, Bill Maher, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all five of them.

    --We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street.

    --You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies, and illegal aliens.

    --We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEOs, and rednecks.

    --We'll keep Bill O’Reilly and Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood.

    --You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.

    --You can have the peaceniks and war protesters.

    --When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.

    --We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.

    --You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness, and Shirley McLaine. You can also have the UN., but we will no longer be paying the bill.

    --We'll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.

    --You can give everyone health care if you can find any practicing doctors.

    --We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."

    --I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine," "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing," "Kum Baya," or "We Are the World."

    --We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle-up poverty your best shot.

    --Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name, and our flag.

    Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

    Sincerely,

    John J. Wall
    Law Student and an American

    P.S. Also, please take George Clooney, Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin Short, Charlie Sheen, Barbra Streisand, and (Hanoi) Jane Fonda with you.

    P.P.S. And you won't have to press 1 for English when you call our country.​

    Oh and we'll keep out statues and monuments as they are, thank you..

    Where I work was overwhelmingly dem, it was exremely rare to hear a conservative voice. In the last few years that's changed..... a lot. I can't remember the last time I heard anyone defend any dem policy.

    It’s a bit of satire, yet if you really consider it, it’s a good picture on where we’ll be once the liberals have their way.

    If Trump wins again, the TDS will be of such pandemic proportions that the Covid virus will be jealous

    When Trump wins again, these riots right now, are just a tiny little spec of whats REALLY coming.
    Keep your powder dry folks, and LOCK&LOAD, EYES WIDE OPEN... we`re in for a real bumpy ride.

    I also fear for Trump`s life. They KNOW he`s going to sweep this election.
    Everybody all better prepare FAR ahead of time for the 2024 election.
    We`re on a roll, we can NOT afford to let them win in 2024, either.

    Talk about preparing ahead of time. I don’t plan on being around for that one.

    Some of it doesn’t seem relevant anymore. Corporations are overwhelmingly on the far left, and Wall Street loves exporting jobs and bringing in cheap labor. I wouldn’t have used the word “homeboys” either because it gives them an opening to shout racism.

    Problem is the freaks wouldn't leave. Or if they did they would want to come back as soon as they figured out they couldn't make it. But, the bigger problem would be they would still be too stupid to admit defeat and still want to bring that crap back to the other side again

    We thought idiocracy and demolition man were satirical movies, until the democrats decided to use them as a road map to their nirvana.

    There is a big difference between money and wealth. The counties that you have highlighted produce little to nothing. They produce no food, durable goods, natural resources, etc. You can’t eat money or drive financial services. Essentially, they siphon the real wealth out of the rest of the country.

    That isn't even remotely close to the truth... For a whole host of reasons...

    You really should take a hour or so, and read how GDP is calculated...
