No, it would be a horrible, devastating and possibly brief conflict. Many states have huge divides between the cities and the suburbs/rural areas. Pennsylvania would split in three, with the massive, yet less populated middle sandwiched between Pittsburgh and Philly. All the Feds need to do is cut off supplies along major routes and we’d have our own holodomor. I’d give us three months.

Wow Christos, you are so clever. Who’d have thought you could leave out a letter and no one would know you were saying that Republican’s suRe are great when they act like real conservatives. So glad we agree.

This is a very nice story about a great family. Please take the following as constructive criticism from a communication professor — the story needs editing. Read this then delete it from the comments. I won’t be offended. I hope you aren’t either.
“The Republican congressman … adopted the pair of twins … who … had been living apart since they were 3-months-old, after repeated pleas from his wife.” It reads as if the children were living apart due to “repeated pleas from his wife.”
Here’s a suggestion: The Republican congressman adopted the twins after repeated pleas from his wife. A “bad situation” caused the children the children to be separated when they were only three months old.
One more: “Initially he had told her that his busy schedule might prevent them from being an effective father.” Are they an effective father? Nope.
Here’s my suggested improvement: Mullin was concerned that his busy schedule might prevent him from being an effective father.

I’m adding her to my prayers, starting now. She needs to experience the love of the real God, not the twisted one of an abusive stepfather.
