Since they are all on a flight to Saudia Arabia for this speech thing, maybe they'll just stay there forever since there's no extradition treaty.

Fingers crossed.

It's really close to Cumming, though.

Wut.

Whatever happened to Podunk Center? | CrestonNews.com

Quote:
Eight miles south of Winterset and six miles north of Lorimor is the place that used to be known as the hub of the world.

This was the small, farming community called Podunk Center.

The story of Podunk Center is probably similar to many stories of small, Iowa towns that popped up in the mid-20th century and died off when state highways were relocated.
---
Harold (Hal) Morris was 29 when he quit his job with a meat-packing plant in Des Moines and bought an acre of Madison County land for $1,500 in 1934. He didn’t tell his wife at the time what he had done.


---
Podunk Center’s greatest population was 21 people, and this was in the 1930s. However, the rural-farming community isn’t on any map or postal guide.

Long road - and that's the only place where you can get 'street level view' on Google for that specific road.

Have you ever looked at a map of which states take from the federal govt vs which states pay in? Guess which category the old south falls into?

Go ahead. Secede. Guarantee the North will be cheering as we will not have to keep supporting your asses.

Not totally. Rural New England is nothing like rural Virginia. Hell, even cities in Virginia.

Fingers crossed.

I was kinda hoping that there would be an overthrow and change of government while he was out of the country.
Then he would be denied access from coming back into the US.

How's THAT for karma?

A sitting President inviting the Russians into the Oval Office (while not allowing the American press) telling them that the Director of the FBI is crazy?

Hoover, JFK, and Reagan all must be rolling over in their graves and considering returning as a zombie to rid the world of this menace.

Didn't say they were alike, I said that it wasn't the south that's the problem. Case in point, look where our problem people are from. Its all -over- the country, not just the south. And basing it on one state in the south doesn't work either. I'm basing my observations on national level politics, combined with living in both the rural and urban south over the last 42 years....

There is racism in the south, but there is plenty of it everywhere else, apparently; just look at where people like Palin, Nugent, Trump, Ryan, Bachmann are all from the NORTH. Then you have those 'State of Jefferson' people out in northern Cali and southern Oregon.

I don't know, I'm just tired of feeling like people are real quick to throw others under the bus, instead of admitting the problem hits them too.
