Alaska, USA

A petition to secede from the union and join Russia is circulating in Alaska. It gained 10,000 signatures in a three day period, if it gets 100,000 the White House is obliged to respond. They must have brain freeze up there.

Last week Sarah Palin said the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke, Is a good guy with a Nuke. Maybe she should look at that map!
Oh Yeah, She don't need to. She can see Russia from her house! :lol: :coolsmile:

Let me see.... Alaska is the state that pays it's citizens a dividend at the end of the year, right?

The White House? Real question is, how many signatures before the the kremlin responds?

One country spies on its people and is involved in conflicts in countries it has no jurisdiction over. The other country is Russia.

If you put your ear up to Sara Palin's ear can you hear the ocean?

Cool, just like in Fallout 3, the Liberation of Anchorage, because, you know, succession from the union was an issue we settle with war. Also: protip for dumbledoor, every world power does that, at least Snowden had the advantage of sanctuary. Go Russia on spies! Russia stay away from our strategic Moose Reserves!

Wasn't there a town in Alaska which applied to Russia for foreign aid because they needed a bridge built but Washington, D.C. ignored them?

Actually, I see the comments about ObamaCare as having a bit of truth in them -- the vast majority of Alaskans are self-reliant and don't like the government taking their hard-earned money for idiotic bureaucracies.

Tell Vlad he can have Alaska, but only if he takes Sarah Palin as well. That should settle his hash.

Wonderful, maybe it will finally show the US establishment how much the rest of the world and even many of 'their' people despise them.

Dear Obama Administration,
I've drafted a response to this petition for you below:


Also, I checked to see if Alaska even has 100,000 people, they have about 730,000. 1 in 70 people isn't impressive, I'll bet 1 in 70 people think dental fillings are a CIA conspiracy to silence their dissent, if they got that up to 1 in 7, I guess I would probably reconsider.
