A modest proposal

Arizona wants to secede? Fine. All they need to do is reimburse us for (a) the amount of money spent buying Arizona from Mexico (adjusted for inflation, that's around $500 billion dollars), and (b) the amount of infrastructure in Arizona built with federal dollars (probably around $10 *TRILLION* dollars, including the various Federally-funded water projects that make Arizona habitable by more than a few cowboys huddled around isolated springs and wells). Then I'll be *happy* to see them secede.

What's that you say? They want to just steal our shit without paying for it? Fuck them, then. Fuck them good and hard up every orifice. 'Cause we paid for that shit, yo. These free-lunch-desirin' welfare whores can just bend over and take it good and hard if they expect to get away with taking our hard-earned property without paying for it, 'cause we got a word for that out here in the straight world: THEFT. And it's a crime, yo.

  1. I'd actually be fine if they kept it. They wouldn't survive the blockade (so to speak) & would starve soon enough, leaving us with AZ again, minus the objectionable "humans." Everybody wins.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
