Some amazing news stories get missed by a media caught up with local game playing. I only found out today that Scotland may be seceding from the UK.
I wonder what William Wallace would say...maybe something like...It's about bloody time.
Staten Island is also again talking about seceding from New York City.They just have to figure out little things like what state to belong to and where to get the money to pay for infrastructure,Police,fire,ems and sanitation.A piece of cake,no worries.
The American Civil War was fought over issues like these.States rights,and NOT slavery was the real reason for the hostilities between The Union and the Confederate states.
