Upstate New York wants to split from Downstate

So some upstate legislators want to split from the Downstate (NYC & LI) because they don't get fair representation. What do you guys think?

Senators ponder state split into upstate, downstate - Utica, NY - The Observer-Dispatch

Personally, I think the idea is retarded.

Who really gives a damn? So they don't get "fair" representation. Majority of the people live down here!

I just found it funny. Politicians are such morons

and so is this guy http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/22/ny...cede.html?_r=1

Hilarious stuff. Excerpt from the NYTimes article:
Quote:
"Mr. Tallini has designed a national flag: a depiction of Long Island with its fishtail-like East End split into two forks, surrounded by four stars for the two counties and two boroughs.

He uses the logo on merchandise he sells from his Web site (Independent Long Island), on banners and mugs and T-shirts. And he has even formulated his own currency, calendar and religion.

What he has not done is gather a single signature on a petition, gained the support of a politician, or even draft a referendum seeking voter approval.

But he says he has laid the most important foundation: He has formed the new country in cyberspace.

He has procured a top-level domain name, .ILI, instead of the traditional dot-com or dot-org suffix; the domain root .LI was already taken by Lichtenstein. For now, he uses the more accessible .com domain name. He envisions an Internet explosion that would provide a major economic engine for the new country."

“The original Long Island tribes were peaceful, but the outside warlike tribes demanded tributes and payments or else they would attack,” he said. “And to this day, we remain the taxpaying tribe.

“We’re still the island that pays tribute. Only now, we pay it to tribes in Manhattan, Albany and Washington.”
Seriously people, read the Times article.

There is a big difference between downstate and the rest. Two years ago Peter cap who was the old State fair director who lives in Syracuse retired, some chick named Babbett Younus from NYC got the job. Dumb bitch didnt even know the state fair runs for 12 days. She is on the news saying " Im looking forward to the 10 days of the fair"

As soon as that aired on the news, Her office got flooded with calls demanding her resignation

Its simple
WE dont ask for much up here but dont insult YOUR state fair which is in OUR yard because WE truly know how to throw a party and your too wound fucking tight to know what goes on around you !
So what you're saying is your region got all hurt and bent out of shape because she said 10 days instead of 12 days in regards to your state fair, and that's an insult so grievous it can only be repaid through a career hara-kiri?

Let me get this clear, you're saying she's the one who's wound tight, right?

They want you to spend your money downstate. Thats why they dont advertise the fair.

The Great New York State Fair :: August 27 - September 7, 2009 :: Syracuse, NY
Yes it's all a conspiracy to keep the rest of the state from finding out about the state fair, because that would trigger a mass exodus and immediately cause the funneling of the entire swaths of disposable income into the state fair for beer money, followed promptly by the implosion of the downstate economy.

SnowBun, tell downstate our sinister master plan has been revealed.

No not at all. Theres no consipracy...just greed. The greed of the downstate politicians. Thats what this is all about. Because if the money isnt spent down there by us taxpayers they dont necessarily get the funding so yes in effect they dont want State fair advertising to succeed because then more funding would have to come up this way to support that growth and that means less to be distributed downstate.

Now as far as wound tight you guys win hands down! Big difference.

Up here were so lax
I don't even know where to begin. Whatever you say, chief.

HAHAHA! Oh MPD, you really crack me up! How convincing you sound

Certainly you're trying to provoke us?

And to think for a split second I actually thought you were serious
