Blues for the blues

Time for one more two cents worth on red states, blue states.

California is a Democrat blue state and does grow a tremendous amount of food, generates gobs of electricity, provides most of the water for our state and others, and pumps barrels of oil. While this is true, we all know most of these actually are grown in or come from the Republican red counties.

The blue counties do provide some things, however. They have the highest crime rates, produce the most pollution and congestion, create the great majority of welfare recipients, and gave us Sen. Barbs Boxer. They are also responsible for harvesting our Hollywood and liberal nuts, though not edible.

The only productive things the blue counties help with are oil wells and nuclear power plants. Ironically, these are the main things the blues continually complain about, hate the most, and want to get rid of. Not to worry blues, you’ll eventually move them all to red counties.

Check out the rest of our nation and you’ll see this is true in every case. You can bet your tie-dyed T-shirts and Birkenstocks that the things blue states are most proud of are their red counties.
