We gotta get Fixer to chime in on this.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Gordon - I'm really hoping he will.

Riot Kitty said...

Them, Texas, etc. - all of the Republican places can secede!

Fixer said...

I'm glad they found three upstanding representatives of Long Island youth to speak for us. Heh ...

Fixer said...

Seriously, this comes up every 10 - 15 years but our local politicians are more inept than they are in Albany so, after some thought, we realize it's best to stay with the devil you know.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Riot Kitty - The only thing bad about ALL the Rethug states is that most of 'em are in the center of the country, and grow a lot of our food.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Fixer - I hope the majority of the youth on Long Island has a wee bit more intelligence than those three. It would really suck if those were the smart ones. Of course, that could be the reason this idea comes up every 10 - 15 years.

Gordon said...

I'm sure The Daily Show went looking for bozos for this. They found 'em. Heh.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Gordon - I wonder how many local pubs they had to go to, or if they found all three at the first one they stopped at.

Fixer said...

... how many local pubs they had to go to ...

Not many. You can't swing a cat around here without hittin' a Ginzo prince ...

Riot Kitty said...

I'd rather starve! LOL, just kidding ;)

Grandpa Eddie said...

Riot Kitty - That's alright, let 'em all in the middle of the country secede. We'll just do a Bush and invade so we can set up a democratic government for them.

Oh, I'll have to watch this. I missed it whenever it was on The Daily Show, I guess. Fixer is right - about everything he posted. There are smart ones too, in secure and undisclosed locations. These look like very typical local youth to me. I'm sure they'll sound typical too. Why the fuck didn't I get out of here when I still could is a question I ask myself every day.

Grandpa Eddie said...

ZenYenta - If those guys are an example of the local youth, the future of LI is in question.
