One dude responsible for Alabama's new petition to secede was actually put out of business by the state of Alabama but now blames the federal "gubmint":
Alabama petiton to secede started by former "businessman" put of biz by …. Alabama

You cannot make this stuff up.  Granted Alabama may not be the best place for a topless car wash but it's his own "goshdern" state putting him out of business (as well as probably putting tape on the assets of bunnies in the men's mag, etc...).

I blame American fast food and junk food for this epidemic of early onset dementia.

I'm not really sure what that has to do with the Daily Show, or GenX (GenY/Millenials are the bigger target for the Daily Show, only the trailing end of GenX is in their targeted demographic), but an example of a dopey "secessionist" for sure.

Sorry.  Just thinking out loud after reading about this obviously confused dude this morning.  Need to read HuffPo in the PM (after several stiff drinks) at the rate these nutcases are coming out of the woodwork; kind of a bummer to those of us who have worked all over this great country (and even with those from territories like America Samoa).

No need to apologize.  I guess I was just curious as to what the connection might be.

As a method to transform a stationary energy supply, wind or water generated electricity, into a mobile energy source, the tankable and thus portable hydrogen, I can see it. But I don't quite understand what the urine is about since electrolytically  cracking plain old water will yield hydrogen...

Damn, I did sort of wonder why there were two on the hydrogen.....

Payback for my calling the honorable Senior (in a good way) Senator from Arizona John McCain "Old Man McCain"? Possibly.
