A Nation of Nuts

A San Francisco writer, ashamed of his country and full of spite at Republicans, Southerners and other troglodytes, wants the Bay Area to secede from the United States and form an independent nation. Here’s his thumbnail sketch of his leftie utopia:

Think of the model social legislation that a Bay Nation could enact: bans on guns altogether, full legalization of same-sex unions, an expansion of public television and radio, complete decriminalization of marijuana, basic health care for all, environmental protections that would be the envy of North America. …By the same token, undocumented Americans (a.k.a. “illegal aliens”) could gain immediate citizenship in the Bay Nation. Bye-bye INS, hello multicultural justice.

Anybody have any other ideas about the benefits this leftie Big Rock Candy Mountain will be able to offer its citizens, once it becomes a heavenly city-state? Will Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon be its Rainier and Grace Kelly? Etc. Send suggestions to Rodindallas(at)aol(dot)com, and I’ll post the best ones.
