“You’re Out!”

October 6, 2014

In a recent poll conducted by FOX News (go figure), the state that most Americans would like to kick out of the union is California.  I didn’t know we were kicking anyone out. Are we out of room?

    Oklahomans often express a desire to get out. One could simply hold the door for them.

    Please think it over a bit before you nominate West Virginia, Donna Cavanaugh. Just as Delaware is very important to corporations, West Virginia is very important to organized religions; it’s the only state where snake handling in religious ceremonies is legally sanctioned and has full approval of the courts.

    Hmm. 8th largest economy in the world. Good plan.

      I can’t believe California was voted off before W. Virginia was even mentioned.

    I nominate Texas

      You should have gotten there earlier Kristen, I think Texas was runner up which as we all know means if California can’t exit in a timely fashion, Texas has to take over as the winner and remove itself. Hey, not a bad plan…
