    Can we start with revolutions not instigated by the CIA?

    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    I wonder what we need to do to get one of those anarchist jurisdictions applied to us. Then we can just not pay federal taxes so those Red state leeches get fucking nothing.
    meh

    Even if that happened wouldn't most states still be deep in the red when it comes to their budgets? Only the Federal Reserve can really save states at this point.

    Welcome back. Comparing poor states that don't have equivalent of Silicon Valley to insects. How daring.

    There's a handful of states that aren't in the red, and this snobby stuff is stupid because states generally have too much on their plate. Why do we have 50 separate programs and bureaucracies for things like medicaid, all with their different dumb rules? No clue, but we do.

    So instead they struggle with providing basic necessities that the federal government should ideally be handling. Medicaid alone eats up 20-30% of any blue state's budget. And issues that have a stronger local context - zoning/planning, infrastructure, utilities, education - are ignored because something that should be handled nationally is delegated to states instead

    Of course.

    But even in my no-income-tax blue state, we spend way more per capita on the rural red regions, providing services, etc. that are not offset by the tax revenue of those areas.

    Note that I’m fine with this, I’m just tired of the notion that blue regions should be punished financially by the federal government when those regions are the government’s primary source of tax “revenue.”

    Because centralization is BIG GOVERNMENT and COMMUNISM, duh. And states are allowed to do things their way as a way to placate the uppity states.

    Zoning, infrastructure, utilities and education get ignored at the State level, eh? Interesting.

    Yeah not sure that whatever place you live where you are more worried about protesters than right-wing miltia is going to have as many issues as most of the country but all of those issues are major problems. States regularly have issues funding basic services because of medicaid, unemployment and tax issues. Most of those are large federal issues that have been neglected by the leadership of both parties. Or blocked by that waste of life McConnell.

    These issues aren't fiercely political but are usually held back by deadlock over other political issues. Not to mention the Republicans ripping needed medicaid away from citizens in many red states, creating further income depression and making the state more of a money sink.

    All these things could be solved by properly taking the wealth the super rich have stolen but instead we will get at best those issues becoming the forefront, and politized because that's our future.

    Of course they killed him.

    But when a white guy gets in a standoff with the cops and fires 40 fucking rounds at them before surrendering, he gets taken in alive.
