    CA needs to secede from the Union. Then we could print our own money and keep spending. Hooray!

    If they could do seven rather than just six it would make Obama's comment about visiting all 57 states semi-correct...retroactively....
    Would love to see this happening but don't believe it will.

    I hope that, when they start carving, most of it falls into the ocean.

    Just kidding!!!!

    I suspect that there is no conflict between the two from either you or me. I think they are boundaries which are agreed upon and only to that extent are they arbitrary. Since they are in place, they are both sovereign within their own domain. "Good fences make good neighbors". I read that somewhere too.

    Obama is a rock star...with a teleprompter and speech writers.
