An Open Letter to Lee Siegel @ The Daily Beast

lee-siegel-190

Lee Siegel – the thinking mans douchebag.

A reader sent me a link to an article and I am not the kind to respond but in this case I’ll make an exception.  Especially because the author is such a fucking douchebag.

Take a moment to read the article – it’s short. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/04/30/memo-to-the-south-go-ahead-secede-already.html

What Mr Siegel fails to realize is this – the North cannot survive without the South.  The South has a much more well developed AG industry.  Arkansas is the #1 rice and soybean producer; Texas, Missouri, and Oklahoma are 3 of the 5 top beef producers;  and  the south is pretty much got a stanglehold on the cotton industry.  Louisiana has a burgeoning fishing industry.  The south pretty much has the poultry industry sewed up.  Granted the north has Ag but does it have enough to feed those EBT dependent mouths?  Lee, how long would it take before your dependents resort to cannibalism (and yes the Donners were Yankees)?

Another thing Joisey douche fails to realize is that industry is flocking to the south at record rates.  Hell the mass migration from the north is well documented and reported – even by the rag that calls itself Newsweek.  The auto industry?  Shit – don’t make me laugh.  The south has the largest concentration of foreign automaker factories in the US which in turn are responsible for a majority of the auto sales in the US.  And they didn’t need a bailout.  Lee take a trip to Detroit but make sure you get your vaccinations first.  That rusty metal that was once the center of industry can give you a nasty case of tetanus.

So we split and you get to pay jacked up rates for our exports to you.  I like the sound of that.  And health?  Jesus man don’t lecture us about health as long as you have that fatass waiting for a heart attack Christie as Govenor.

I do agree – an amicable split would be a good thing.  And as that young law student suggested I think these terms are fair:

“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 our 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 the coal mines, 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 Bill O’Reilly, and 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 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.

In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

Sincerely,
John J. Wall
Law Student and an American”

So Lee, in summary you’re pretty much just a Jersey Douche drama queen in most of our eyes.  Seriously – WTF is a culture critic? Does that “job” even serve a real purpose other than amusing snot nosed spoiled northerners?  I’m done with ya – and hell I didn’t even get to the part about Sprezzatura and the New Republic debacle.

  1. Absofu*kinglutely!!! The QUICKER, the BETTER!

    Oh! And, why don’t we send ALL of the “socially perverted malcontents” [That’s ANY one who disregards the Bible, or Judeo/Christian moral or ethical values], AND let’s also ship all those worthless “Lifers” and “LIFE TIME PROFESSIONAL CRIMINALS” (forcing us to feed & pamper’em, due to the Liberal Court System)…or, we’ll just have to eliminate’em, because we can’t afford to feed, cloth, and house their worthless souls ANY MORE!

    I’m CERTAIN that, (once the Libs really KNOW that we SERIOUSLY do NOT intend to continue allowing these bums to financially undermine our economy, but rather, ARE QUITE INTENT on sending them OUT of this life), ALL those sweet, LOVING, KIND AND GENTLE Libtards, Progressives, and such, will GLADLY, AND WITH DEEP CONVICTIONS of “thoughtfulness”, take ALL of our misfits, criminals and “LONG TERM miscreants”, in order to “rehab, and fully rehabilitate, making them into NEW & TOTALLY fine, loving citizens”! JUST like Sharron Sharaden tried SOOOOOO hard to do for poor Sean Penn!…….(excuse me…was that a SNORT & laughter I heard?)…{;-) “wink” ……………All of that to assure you, that I concur!

      Perfect, we can trade all the above to those libtards for all the babies they like to kill.

    Battle Hymn was a Yankee song. Disgusting! Live in Texas. If we can give up our psychotic, messianic foreign policy, let’s leave. Muslims won’t mess with the South.

  4. Webster's Cat. says:

    They can have Bill O’Riley along with Rossie O’Donald-they are two peas in a pod and made for each other.

  5. Daniel K Day says:

    It really is time for an amicable divorce. I wish I could believe it’ll happen that way, I expect it to come through violence, but making the idea known, without sarcasm or apology, is the only way to make it possible.

  6. Tom Riordan says:

    We can take all the tradesmen and engineers, and they can have all the city managers and business agents. Let them have all the unions too. They would be bankrupt in a week!

  7. CDP says:

    Great piece, loved it! SECESSION!

  8. Alexis-Charles-Henri Clérel de Tocqueville , a French historian and political thinker, traveled widely in the United States in the 1840’s. He wrote that it was two different countries , with completely different cultures in the North and South. That’s still true today, though some of the plains and mountain states tend to be “Southern” in core values. The best thing that could happen for the people of the United States would be to form two new countries. The Federalist State could be comprised of Washington, Oregon, California, New York, New England and the ilk. The remainder of the country could happily set off on it’s own, live the way it wanted to, hold the values it believed in, and be free of the constant rain of criticism and coercion from the “we know better than you peasants” crowd.

  9. D says:

    And both sides would still not be free. Split the “Sides” and you’d still have a police state. Really, both sides are hypocrites and warmongers who love the police state and show their mental apathy by bombarding anyone who questions authority (either side of the isle) with insults and name calling. Both sides are equally opposed to any persons wanting true freedom and individual liberty, i.e self ownership and responsibility. Both sides are deceived into their “Sides” rhetoric and deceit. The right wingers worship the state as evidenced by their love for killing people in other countries who are “too stupid to realize that democracy is good for them,” not to mention, the praise and adulation that they heap onto their murderous power crazed leaders such as Bush and Abe Lincoln. The “Left” are just as biased and duped into their own dogma as the “right.” Different rhetoric, different mantra, different language, ultimately same result: Mass servitude to the few in power. One (the”left”) will quickly generate the total enslavement of the mass populace, the other (the “right”) will slowly and methodically effectuate the enslavement of the mass populace. I call it the two step dance. The “Left” would bring us two steps at a time toward tyranny, servitude, lack of freedom… While the “Right” would bring us one step at a time (Although, it can be argued that Bush did more to undermine freedom than any liberal before him).

    If people here really wanted to split the nation over ideals, it might be prudent to recall a previous time in the nation’s history when we tried to do just that… It created hundreds of thousands of deaths. It enabled a deceitful man who murdered our young and was duplicitous in violation of the “Law” (Abe Lincoln illegally removed a supreme court Judge, amongst other constitutional violations). The right unabashedly worships this despicable man. Isn’t this proof enough that both sides are beholden to their earthly masters above any principle that they may claim to hold?

    If the “Right” were to really want freedom and for people to not live off of welfare, then one would think that they would have no problem with men and women saying that they were going to start their own colony were the only “Rules” or “Laws” that existed were the principle of self ownership. But of course, as is unfortunately obvious to those who dream of having true freedom on earth, neither the “Right” nor the “Left” would ever allow people to truly own themselves. Thus the hypocrisy continues and the death of the individual is assured.

    What sickens me most, are the Christians who claim to worship God, the Christ, but then turn around and have more allegiance to their party and the state than they do for their God. I believe that’s called idolatry.

    (If I’ve offended any who reads this, please accept my apology and know that I once was a VERY dedicated Republican and “Conservative.” I thank God that I am no longer beholden to a group or party or ideal, but rather to God alone. Galatians 5=Read it)

  10. Ben says:

    Holeee Sh*t!

    Douchebaggery does not even begin to describe this misanthrope. Are there any progressives out there that do NOT hate their fellow human beings?

    Take this little ditty from his “piece”.

    “Universal health care. No guns. Strong unions. A humane minimum wage. A humane immigration policy. High revenues from a fair tax structure. A massive public-works program. Legal gay marriage. A ban on carbon emissions. Electric cars. Stronger workplace protections. Extended family leave from work in case of pregnancy or illness. Longer unemployment benefits. In short, a society on a par with most of the rest of the industrialized world.”

    Universal health care – How is that working out for Great Britain and Canada?

    No guns – How’s that working out for Chicago or any place on the planet where citizens are not allowed to carry firearms? What was the fist thing Stalin, Mao and Hitler did?

    Strong unions – Yah…um…Detroit…Philadelphia…Cleveland….Trenton….a number of cities in California. How did union labor work out for those places? You should move to Detroit Lee, I hear they are looking for people to live in their progressive utopia.

    A humane minimum wage? Since when are wages humane? It is irrelevant. Wage has noting to do with “humaneness”. Wage rates are influenced by market forces (supply and demand). An employer looking for a an individual who can provide a skill will “pay” that person whatever the company and market bears. Do you have a skill that is in high demand? Then you will be compensated for it given the demand of said skill. It has nothing to do with humanity. Just because you think a burger flipper should get 20 bucks an hour does not mean that the market will bear it. J.C. on a bicycle!

    Humane immigration? See above. What exactly does that mean? Do we not have a humane immigration policy now? This country has one of the most humane policies on the planet. What effing country does this moron live in? Is it not humane because you think we should let anyone in this country because of their condition? We have a moral obligation to people who come here and suck off of the American teat and expect more items for free because they feel they are entitled? I am all for LEGAL immigration. I WANT the best and brightest minds from other countries to come here. What I don’t want is people pouring over the border and burdening the system until it is destroyed. Is that what you want? How about this Lee, why don’t YOU go to another country and teach people to become self-reliant and self-sufficient? Oh…don’t want to do that right now? Too much too ask? You effing liberals think that because conservatives want controls put and limitations put on illegals that we are somehow the spawn of Satan. How about we try and help the people THAT ALREADY LIVE IN THIS COUNTRY….oh…don’t want to do that right now Lee? Didn’t think so.

    High tax revenues from a fair structure. I don’t even know where to begin with this idiocy. I could go on and on but suffice it to say….high tax implementation has always, always, always, stifled economic growth. High economic growth can actually produce higher revenues. It does not work the other way around. My God.

    A massive public works program. Again. I am not even going to start with this one. You mean we are going to use the high tax revenue from the stifled economic growth to build infrastructure! Yeah! How does that work again? How did that work during the depression. Oh wait! We can just print money right? That should stimulate growth and help with public works.

    Legal Gay Marriage. Because 2000 years of man and women defined marriage just had to go. Because children raised with same sex parents don’t have dirty little secrets do they? Higher rates of suicide. High rates of substance abuse. Higher high school drop out rates. I could go on and on and cite study after study but it would not matter.

    Read this from one of your own.

    Ban on carbon emissions. Really? Then you better start right now. Dump that car. Dump that cell phone. Dump that AC. Dump that refrigerator? Hell, dump everything that is powered by AC/DC. If you are really serious about this stuff then you go the whole yard. Dump all of that stuff and go off grid and tell me how you do. And when I mean off grid, I mean off grid. Get rid of it all and tell me how you do it after a week. Don’t want to do that right now? Thought so. Then shut your yapper about AGW. It’s a ruse and a sham. That does not however mean that as conservatives we want to see smoke belching out of stacks, polluted rivers, streams and lakes. Nuclear waste dumped on the side of the road etc. etc. I am all for alternative energies. Just ones that are not a sham like wind. Solar has some uses but not on a megawatt usage grid. See? Not all conservatives are cigar chomping capitalists. In fact, I myself am not completely in favor of capitalism. I am a free market guy. Capitalism that is unchecked leads to cronyism. See General electric.

    Electric cars. Because those are SELLING so well right?

    Stronger workplace protections? Cripes! This country has some of the strongest workplace programs on the planet. Do you think this is 1910? Ever heard of OSHA? Workplace Safety Corp? Blah, blah, blah! Do you want everyone to wear a bike helmet while they are at work? Oh wait, someone said something offensive to you at work and you need protection from them? Is that the kind of workplace protections? Even more intrusive sexual harassment training? Men can’t even look at women? They have to cover there eyes when they discuss business dealings or strategic planning with women? Stuff like that? Is that what you mean? Who isn’t being protected in this society? God forbid if people are being harassed at a job or work site that they actually go to their employer, lawyer or any myriad of companies that support workplace “harmony”. Grow a pair you friggin’ nancy and take responsibility for yourself.

    Extended Leave for illness and pregnancy. WTF is long term disability? Don’t know about you but my company pays for 16 weeks of pregnancy leaves….and it is a CONSERVATIVE company. I have had 2 surgeries in the last 4 years and all of it was paid for by my company. Longer unemployment benefits? You mean so you can laze around on your ass and not take responsibility for yourself? You need Uncle Sugar to take care of you from cradle to grave?

    What a pussy you are. What a progressive POS. This article is why I cannot stand progressives. Liberals I don’t always mind. Progressives, can’t stand them. They are the destroyers of societies.

    Sorry to ramble folks and I am sorry for any types but this got me boiling. I can’t stand these self-righteous, narcissistic psychopaths.

    Sad part is, I might actually agree with this jagoff. I would love to move down South. There are some beautiful areas in that part of the country. Used to live in NC and loved it and I think SC has some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Love parts of Georgia, Alabama and Florida as well. Lots of great places down South. Hell, there are lots of beautiful places all over this country. I do like the deep South though. Friendly people, warm weather and good eats. Love of country, God and family. What more do you need?

    Maybe you can take this Yankee in if I ever decide to move back there.

    I am tired of the progressive hell I live in.

    Great article Lizard.
