Southern California County Supervisor Decides It's Time to Secede
"Divided we win" or whatever: Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone is tired of all of California's terrible unsolvable debt problems, welfare queens, crappy public schools and those annoying "greenhouse gas regulations" keeping everyone in Los Angeles alive. So he proposes to partition California into Northern and Southern, with LA officially joining Northern California because of all its libruls and poors. Stone wants Riverside, San Diego and Orange County to break off and form their own SoCal state of angry white olds:
Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone said he wants to ask about a dozen counties to split from California and form a new state with a balanced budget, secure borders, effective schools and a vibrant economy.
Stone's plan came the same day Gov. Jerry Brown signed the new state budget, shoring up the state's deficit through massive cuts in education and social services.
"California was once the world's fourth largest economy and now struggles to hold onto eighth place," Stone said. "Our taxes are too high, our schools don't educate our children well enough, unions and other special interests have more clout in the Legislature than the general public. It has to change."
