California Republican Wants to Form Breakaway State

A Scientology-backed Republican pharmacist from Temecula, California is upset that he lives in the liberal welfare state of California, so he's doing what any rational right winger would do: He's proposing a 51st state, "South California." It would include the counties of "Fresno, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego and Tulare" — all of which have high concentrations of white pick-up trucks and meth heads.

Stone's not only mad as hell about illegal immigrants and fucking hippies running his state, but, as he told the Los Angeles Times, "Los Angeles just enacted a ban on plastic grocery bags. That put three or four manufacturers out of business." So, how will the state handle this growing right wing insurgency? Governor Jerry Brown's spokesman gave the LAT this gem of a quote:

"It's a supremely ridiculous waste of everybody's time," said spokesman Gil Duran. "If you want to live in a Republican state with very conservative right-wing laws, then there's a place called Arizona.''

Ouch.
