Abe, you're very old and feeble. Don't make me break both of your hips, because I have no reservations about doing it.

Could they take Alabama, Arkansas, and a few other Southern States with them. Aside from oil, which we could just buy or take from them, I can't for the life of me figure out what these states contribute to our country.

For the record, all of the aforementioned states tried to leave.

I have a plan for the United States to sell California to the French. They could use the land to make cheap wine varieties. I can't think of any other usefull purpose for that particular state, with all it's frivalry and foolishness.

To butcher the words of Kinky Friedman, who is seeking the governor's job in Texas, "My first order of business as governor would be to get rid of the career politicians. After that, I'd get rid of the Californians."
