“Swamp(land)-fill” is incremental.
Some California dodgers wish to wean themselves from Sacramento’s nipple. They’re pushing separation to form a new state called Jefferson — again. This “go-round,” California’s south shows interest.
Apparently, marijuana, money and stressed-out population produces political “California dreamin’.” Regardless, a “Golden State” divorce is feasible.
Money. California ranks in the world’s top six economies. Humboldt County is north and long home to weather sensitive squatters and, recently trendy, pot plantations producing gillions in taxes. Can Sacramento afford losing this great “golden goose?”
Population. Trump rants that (alt-right code for Mexicans/Democrats) California people vote more than once. Attention-getting “wolf-cries.”
Indeed, California bleeds people. Between natural disasters, most California dodgers are hard-pressed just to vote, much less vote twice. Again, a distracted, insecure president is just looking for attention.
The “swam” isn’t draining, so America needs to build on it, with clean landfill.
Ostensibly, a California split means America changes its flag; unless we get a “two-for.” What’s a “two-for?” How about a North-South Dakota wedding?
That union is overdue. Minnesota’s Twin Cities — and Winona — host more citizens than are living in the whole states of North and South Dakota — combined.
North Dakota domiciles some 800,000 dodgers. It’s a state, not a city. South Dakota boasts 900,000 dodgers. Same deal. It’s small now and will likely stay small. Current political gaming aside, they exist only because of 19th century politics.
Criminy. St. Paul alone hosts 300,000 dodgers — with as many city council members as has wee-Winona.
“Too many cooks spoil the soup.” Clean landfill: Replace superfluous, spendy swampland with solid stuff.
