    ...to express outrages by various protesting acts.

    For example, cancel your planned vacation in the Disneyland.

    What else can you think of?

    Hmm... Disneyland is in a BLUE state (Calif.)

    Walt Disney World is in a RED state (Fla.)

    And Disney? Er... :confused: I guess it depends who you ask.

    Disneyland? It doesn't get much more blue than California. But it would be nice if you don't come.

    Anyway, a boycott it is a bad idea. It reminds me of the time that homosexuals were boycotting Colorado because of some anti-gay proposition. They boycotted the sky resorts, not realizing that the sky towns which were affected were mostly liberal and pro-gay, while the anti-gay residents of cities like Colorado Springs didn't give a damn about the boycott and probably welcomed it.

    Or, punish them by letting them secede from the union. Let them have their own country, we should make them go through the Custom and pay dues when they visit Boston. Who need these rednecks. These people are like foreigners to me.

    Yes but he will get the last laugh, in his effort to punish the red states he cancelled his trip to the Statue of Liberty and the Sears tower.

    After receiving word that Verybdog will never step foot on it's propert again, Disney World in Orlando has filed for bankruptcy protection in Federal Court. Also going out of business are many of the 'red states' just as soon as verybdog figures out which ones they are.

    Now, vbd, despite the utter stupidity of the proposal, almost has it right. While California is as blue as the sky and the smurfs, Orange County is a conservative area, at least by California standards.

    I'm not quite sure what my point is, probably just trying to make small talk.

    That's punishment? Hell, we did it on our own accord once already, and I don't think the majority of the uneducated Rebel flag waving NASCAR fans I have seen in some of the more "deep" pockets of the South would have any problem with it at all.

    And I'm pretty sure I could work around it, too.

    Wait a minute...isn't "punishing the red states" something Al Qaeda already proposed last week? Are you working with them?

    Hey, maybe the Northeast and the Pacific Coast should secede.

    It is true that Orange County as a whole is heavily republican, (something like 61 % to 39 % for Bush this time), but I am not sure about the city of Anaheim, where Disneyland is located. I think it is blue. Anaheim has many hispanics, and I believe their representative in the House is Loretta Sanchez, a liberal democrat. Of course, they say President Bush did better among hispanics this time, so who knows.

    Actually, if you look at the whole state, it's sort of a microcosm of the country.

    The major cities - San Francisco, L.A., Sacramento and specifically the central parts of San Jose and San Diego are pretty liberal. A lot of coastal communities - towns in Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo, Humboldt, Mendocino counties tend to be liberal.

    But a lot of the suburbs of the major metro areas tend to be Republican. Orange County, Placer County (Sac suburbs), and the eastern halves of Contra Costa and Alameda counties in the Bay Area are Republican bastions.

    And there are wide swaths of rural California where Dems struggle to succeed: the ag valleys (San Joaquin, Sacramento, Salinas, Imperial), the Sierra Nevada foothills and the high country, and some beach cities like Santa Barbara.

    Kerry said it's time to heal. No FK way. The conflicting ideologies of blue states and the red states are so far apart that they can never really heal. Liberals will never happy with the way rednecks chose to live, and rednecks would never please with that of liberals.

    The only way to resolve this is to take lesson from former USSR - break USA into several different countries that would have its own cohessive governing philosophies. It's like a sorry miserable marriage after 50 years, tried everything and nothing worked.

    Let's have a divorce.

    The next MLS Cup, and probably a few World Cup qualifiers, will unfortunately be in red states, so a red state boycott is actually disloyal to soccer.

    Knowing the red states, of course, soccer will soon be banned there anyway.
