Cave 76

cave 76Since states can't, for all practical purposes, secede from the Union and the federal government already wields vast authority over our daily lives, as the war on drugs and terrorism issues have clearly proven, I'm wondering why we even need states and, therefore, the electoral college? Why not simply define our country by congressional districts and choose our presidents accordingly?

State lines are, apart from major rivers or stands of coastline, purely aritificial anyway. At least with congressional districting we're grouping citizens by population. Ideally, that is.

While I'm being silly, why don't adjoining states ever merge their borders and become one super state? Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia could merge to form one giant Gulf Redneckopolis. Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona could meld and become the Big Square State. Texas would never join with anyone because, you know, assholes.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Uncle Lefty's Saturnalian Shopping Tips

I just checked the calendar and it's now approximately 34 days until Xmas Eve, when REAL manly shopping begins, usually at the local 7-11.

Perhaps even take out an eye. For instance.
