California.

MAR 2006

California is definitely the leading producer of fruits and nuts. Your mayor of San Francisco is certainly a shining example of that. Grey Davis and Diane Feinstein aren't far behind. We won't miss them. As for agriculturally grown fruits and nuts, we've got everything we need right here in Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Washington, Vermont, Arizona, and many others. We promise we won't miss them, and we won't miss you.

Yeah, and we got milk, and plenty of it, too. Thanks to Wisconsin, South Dakota, Texas, Kansas, Alabama, Arizona, Florida, and Michigan, I think we'll do fine without you. And it's real COLD milk. How 'bout yours?

Software? Well, we'll do just fine without you, particularly without the whiny likes of Netscape who used the brute force of the government as its
tool of vendetta against a company that believe it or not, is NOT a monopoly. To call Microsoft a monopoly wouldn't give due respect to Linux, Unix, Irix, Solaris, SCO-Unix, Tru-64, Be-OS, and... Mac-OS.

What with Silicon Hills (Texas), Silicon Alley (New York), Silicon Suburbs (Georgia), and others, more than willing to fill your void, I don't think we'll be in much trouble.

Airplanes? Oh, you can have them. All of them. Plenty of other places proudly manufacture airplanes, and would be glad to see California out of the way. States like Washington (Boeing), Arizona (Boeing), Kansas (Boeing), Florida (Boeing), Texas (Boeing), New Mexico (Century), Kansas (Cessna), Minnesota (Cirrus), Oklahoma (Commander), Texas (Fairchild), Georgia (Gulfstream), Florida (Seawolf), Kansas (Learjet), Texas (McDonnell Douglas), Virginia (Lockheed Martin), Pennsylvania (Lockheed Martin), Minnesota (Lockheed Martin), West Virginia (Lockheed Martin), Florida (Lockheed Martin), Massachussetts (Lockheed Martin), Arkansas (Lockheed Martin), Georgia (Lockheed Martin), Texas (Lockheed Martin), Arizona (Boeing-Mcdonell Douglas), Florida (Micco), Texas (Mooney), Colorado (Pilatus), Nevada (Northrop Grumman), Arizona (Northrop Grumman), New Mexico (Northrop Grumman), Colorado (Northrop Grumman), Texas (Northrop Grumman), Oklahoma (Northrop Grumman), Nebraska (Northrop Grumman), North Dakota (Northrop Grumman), Illinois (Northrop Grumman), Louisiana (Northrop Grumman), Alabama (Northrop Grumman), Georgia (Northrop Grumman), Florida (Northrop Grumman), South Carolina (Northrop Grumman), Virginia (Northrop
Grumman), Maryland (Northrop Grumman), New York (Northrop Grumman), Connecticut (Northrop Grumman), Florida (Piper), Arizona (Raytheon), Florida (Raytheon), Massachussetts (Raytheon), Maryland (Raytheon), Texas (Raytheon), Colorado (Raytheon), Kansas (Raytheon), Washington (Raytheon), Texas (Sino Swearingen), West Virginia (Sino Swearingen), and Washington (Stoddard Hamilton).

Then the hi-tech weapons manufacturers, well, let's see... We've got Missouri (Boeing), Arizona (Raytheon), Florida (Raytheon), Massachussetts (Raytheon), Maryland (Raytheon), Texas (Raytheon), Colorado (Raytheon), Kansas (Raytheon), Washington (Raytheon), Nevada (Northrop Grumman), Arizona (Northrop Grumman), New Mexico (Northrop Grumman), Colorado (Northrop Grumman), Texas (Northrop Grumman), Oklahoma (Northrop Grumman), Nebraska (Northrop Grumman), North Dakota (Northrop Grumman), Illinois (Northrop Grumman, and now BOEING!!!), Louisiana (Northrop Grumman), Alabama (Northrop Grumman), Georgia(Northrop Grumman), Florida (Northrop Grumman), South Carolina (Northrop Grumman), Virginia (Northrop Grumman), Maryland (Northrop Grumman), New York (Northrop Grumman), Connecticut (Northrop Grumman), Texas (McDonnell Douglas), Virginia (Lockheed Martin), Pennsylvania (Lockheed Martin), Minnesota (Lockheed Martin), West Virginia (Lockheed Martin), Florida (Lockheed Martin), Massachussetts (Lockheed Martin), Arkansas (Lockheed Martin), Georgia (Lockheed Martin), Texas (Lockheed Martin), Arizona (Boeing-Mcdonell Douglas).

If you're talking about the satellite and communications companies Loral and Hughes (California), then you can have them. Any company that is willing to sell its technology to China at the risk of undermining the strategic national security of the United States of America, then they are not welcome here. Plenty of other companies would be more than glad to fill their void, and do it without compromising national security.

Hollywood? Yet another leading Californian producer of fruits and nuts! You can have them. I'd prefer just curling up with a good book, or going hunting, rather than subsidizing Hollywood.

We don't want your wine. Plenty of other states happily produce wonderful wines, including Texas, Oregon, Georgia, Idaho, Virginia, and many others. Not to mention the fantastic selection of imported wines, from Italy, France, Australia, Chile, Bulgaria, Germany, et al.

We are not losing sleep over your self-imposed plight. I think I've made it clear that we'd do just fine without you (if not EVEN better). You DON'T build enough power plants, but that's your fault for buying into the environmentalists' leftist agenda - which is based on EMOTION and not based on SCIENCE. You reap what you sow.

Tell you what.... the largest producers of candles are located in Massachussetts, Texas, New York, and Ohio... and the largest producers of flashlight batteries are located in Wisconsin, Missouri, Massachussetts, and Connecticut. Give 'em a call, tell 'em your sob story, and they MIGHT cut you a discount.

You said, "This is your last warning, America. Lighten (us) up before it's too late." A warning... is that a threat? You want our power? Then I'll take a quotation from the Gonzales flag: "COME AND TAKE IT"

The same thing is going to happen to us, you say? We'll, too lose power? Um.. No. That's not going to happen, because no other state in the union has let itself get quite as hamstrung as you have by its emotionally charged, insipid enviro-marxists. We understand that we have to set our priorities straight. California didn't understand that, or didn't want to understand that.

Instead, you chose to buy shopping carts for the homeless and concocted end-of-the-world scenarios, based on junk-science, instead of building more power plants, and repairing the ones you have (fully one-third of your powerplants are offline!!). We've learned from YOUR mistakes. Have YOU?

We have EVERYTHING we need without you. We sure as hell don't need your fruits and nuts, and we definitely don't need your insidious social experiments and draconian, unconstitutional laws. Tell you what... We'll give all that stuff up, if you promise to break off, and float away.

 

Response to the following article:

Welcome to California

California ranks 48th in the nation in power consumed per person. California
grows more than half the nation's fruit, nuts and vegetables. We're keeping
them. We need something to eat when the power goes out. We grow 99 percent
or more of the nation's almonds, artichokes, dates, figs, kiwifruit, olives,
persimmons, pistachios, prunes, raisins and
walnuts.
Hope you won't miss them.

California is the nation's number one dairy state. We're keeping our dairy
products. We'll need plenty of fresh ones since our refrigerators can't be
relied upon. Got milk?

We Californians are gonna keep all our high-tech software in state. Silicon
Valley is ours, after all. Without enough electricity, which you're
apparently keeping for yourselves, we just plain don't have enough software
to spare.

We're keeping all our airplanes. California builds a good percentage of the
commercial airliners available to fly you people to where you want to go.
When yours wear out, you'd better hope Boeing's Washington plant can keep
you supplied. There isn't enough electricity here to allow us to export any
more planes than we need ourselves. And while we're at it, we're keeping all
our high-tech aerospace stuff, too, like the sophisticated weapons systems
that let you sleep at night, not worried you might wake up under the rule of
some foreign kook. Oh, yeah, and if you want to make a long-distance call,
remember where the satellite components and tracking systems come from.
Maybe you could get back in the habit of writing letters.

Want to see a blockbuster movie this weekend? Come to California. We make
them here. Since we'll now have to make them with our own electricity, we're
keeping them. Even if we shot them somewhere else, the labs, printing
facilities, editing facilities, and sound facilities are all here.

Want some nice domestic wine? We produce over 17 million gallons per year.
We'll need all it to drown our sorrows when we think about the fact that no
matter how many California products we export to make the rest of America's
lives better, America can't see its way clear to help us out with a little
electricity. You can no longer have any of our wine.

You all complain that we don't build enough power plants. Well, you don't
grown enough food, write enough software, make enough movies, build enough
airplanes and defense systems or make enough wine.

This is your last warning, America. Lighten (us) up before it's too late.

Love,
The Californians

P.S. You may be next with electrical and energy problems.
