    Official Divorce Agreement



    Chain email I received today from a friend, I got a chuckle out of it.

    Official Divorce agreement:

    Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

    Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what
    is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

    Here is a model separation agreement:

    --Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be
    the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

    --We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.

    --You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.

    --We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.

    --You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.

    --We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.

    --You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.

    --We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.

    --We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood

    --You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.

    --You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.

    --We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.

    --You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

    --We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.

    --You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.

    --We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.

    --We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."

    --I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".

    --We'll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.

    --Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.
    Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

    Sincerely,

    John J. Wall

    Law Student and an American

    P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen, Barbara Streisand, & ( Hanoi ) Jane Fonda with you, and don’t forget Alec Baldwin, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga..

    P.S.S. And you won't have to press 1 for English when you call our country.

    If we're dividing up the land mass. I'll go with the south (Virginia straight across to southern cal) and we can finally secure the border.

    That's good....really. I am always looking for good examples of how people celebrate this form of thinking. I guess my side gets to keep all of the universities, museums, craft beers, national parks, coffee shops, literature and the Kennedy Center right? This doesn't offend the liberal mind one bit.

    Don't let the door hit you in your Lee's jean wearing ass as you leave.

    Literature.... seriously?

    A typical rationalization from a typical social progressist.

    I'm a Levis guy, FWIW.

    There is a lot literature out there that might bring into question your mighty god. I wouldn't want to see you unknowingly stumble into what Pierre Boulle referred to as the "Forbidden Zone".

    I digress slightly, but do yourself A favor and read the book "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions."

    No thanks, I took a whole semester grad class on Polanyi 20 years or so ago who long paved the way for SSR. I get it. There is a romantic notion to thinking that nothing really matters but in the end everyone grabs hold of something. You're going to tell me that scientific pursuit is nothing more than what I see currently in front of me yet you will quote the bible like there is an absolute value to it.

    No thanks, I'll stick to my Apes to understand your way of thinking.

    Galen is quite right, it makes perfect sense to believe that the universe came from nothing!

    It just popped into existence with no cause what-so-ever.

    Yea, Atheists are stupid. Obviously a wizard did it! That's waaaaay more logical that the evidence based belief in the big bang.

    Yes, there is plenty of evidence to support the big bang theory. This link is a good source of information from UCLA's astronomy program, you can use it as a first step in furthering your education about the origin of our universe.

    More condescension, per usual.

    Your link talks about the Big Bang Theory, as do most, about it being "its development with time". Not the Big Bang Theory as the origin of the universe, as your sarcastic post mocking Greg above started to make.

    Thank you come again.

    You are missing the point by such a wide margin that I don't even know how to address your "point."

    It is an established scientific theory (a theory being an established and tested concept that is supported by evidence. There are very few "facts" involved in higher science) that the big bang theory was not only the phenomenon that created our universe, but also that time itself did not exist prior to the big bang. If time didn't exist before the bang, then logically the first event in the history of the universe is the big bang. It is the start point for the universe.

    Your anti-science idiocy aside, it is well established that the universe was created by the big bang. If you can show me an astrophysicist who disagrees, I would be interested in reading his work.

    Listen here internet tough guy.

    I am not an expert on the subject, nor do I pretend to be. I have read a few things here in there.

    Many things I've read, don't talk about time existing or not before the big bang.

    The Big Bang is a theory, and there is more unknown than there is that is known. So relax with the "evidence", will ya?

    Calling it a theory as if that makes it open to debate is evidence that you don't know enough about science to be arguing with anyone.

    It is a theory the same way gravity is a theory. There is an overwhelming mountain of evidence supporting it and nothing to cast any doubt on it's reality.

    Chill your jets big guy, your simply over your head trying to claim that the big bang is anything other than the established start of the universe. Ditto trying to claim time existed prior to its occurrence. It simply didn't. Time is a dimension exactly like length and width. Before the big bang there was no length, width, depth, or time. That is well established and supported.

    The Catholic Church has even accepted all of this as facts. You arguing it can only be A. Evidence of your ignorance, or B. Proof that you are anti science.
