 DIVORCE AGREEMENT Between 
Republicans & Democrats
WRITTEN BY A YOUNG COLLEGE STUDENT
The person who wrote this is a college (law) student. Perhaps there is hope for us after all.
THIS IS SO INCREDIBLY WELL PUT AND I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT'S BY A YOUNG PERSON, A STUDENT!
=========================================
Dear American
liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:
We have stuck together   since the late 1950's for the
sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.
Here is our separation agreement:
--Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
--We don't like re-distributive taxes so you can keep them.
--You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.
--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military.
--We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and bio-diesel.
--You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.
--We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street.
--You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, hippies, druggies, and illegal aliens .
--We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEOs, and rednecks.
--We'll keep Hannity, Carlson, and Bibles, and give you NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, and Hollywood.
--You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
--You can have the peaceniks and war protesters.
-- When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
--We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
--You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer pay the bill
--We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt, Tesla, and Leaf you can find .
--You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
--We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."
--I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine," "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing," "Kumbaya," or "We Are the World."
--We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
--Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.
Would you agree to this?   If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years .
Sincerely, John J Wall
Law   Student and American!

Well put. One consideration, we will decide up the country by red areas and blue areas. That is definitely not equal sizes.

I found those links before I posted. That's why I titled it the way I did.

From the links:
There?s no way to verify that the commentary was actually written by a young law student named John J. Wall. Aside from the popular ?Divorce Agreement? commentary that has been making the rounds for seven years, there?s no online footprint for a young conservative law student with that name.

Hum, Maybe John Wall is really iddee  alias number 6?  😊😁

 Irregardless Good post iddee.

You should know by now these iddee homilies are allegedly written by a script writer in DC for gullible RW sheeple and posted on here for just that reason!  :rolleyes: :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:
Your probably (politically :cheesy:)  agnostic friend. But more than likely the other as well!

Well coolbees, I was thinking RW sheeple would find it unpalatable reading an article in snopes That could very well be true. :cheesy:

2 points: 1st, I'm not sure why RWers would care one way or the other about snoops. 2nd - the articles simply say that the author can't be verified - so ................ #stillconfusedwheretheproblemis .... :cheesy:

Who wouldn't believe snopes? After all, they only lie when they type or speak.   :cheesy: :cheesy:

My point exactly! - the only "problem" they could find was attributing an author - so they could bash said author to death - per usual. ... except they couldn't find him/her/it (gotta love this 'new' world) .... so they "squimished" ... and cider's expecting we should find this "unpalatable" ... ... ... so I ask "how is this unpalatable"? ... ... ... Crickets ... ...

... seems the RWers are getting smarter ... ... oops! ... dope!  :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:

Remember a while ago the letter written for RW sheeple by an allegedly twenty something girl criticising food stamps etc.?  That turned out to be by an old gent who wanted it to appeal to the RW sheeple. You usually find these type of 'letters' are written by someone else :rolleyes: ..............in fact......Fake News.........a la Goebbels :sad:  RW sheeple are no strangers to this type of thing having swallowed it hook, line and sinker in the Thirtys. :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:

As I said before, all stories change with each telling. The basic truth remains, tho, and that is what counts.

Iddee, cool, don?t let cider divert your attention from the meaning of the writing as it is kinda funny and puts one to thinking, (what if). Perhaps on both sides of the fence. 😁
Apparently someone did write it, most likely a humble person, not looking for fame, or notoriety.  Or someone already having each? Yes, that Cider is mighty tricky!  Our cousin, Cider, from across the water might also have a pen name, for all we know he may very well be Prince Harry or Prince William, or maybe even Prince Charles himself, who enjoys sparring with his American, far removed cousins?  We can each speculate as who the real writer was or is? Perhaps it was not a student? Perhaps it could have been an older person? Whoever it was, this person apparently has quite an imagination to come up with that kind of thinking?Irregardless the  point was made by this pen named John Wall. Yes this (pen named) person is a mystery alright. Let?s use a little imagination also. Instead of he  being a RW law student, could it just as easily have been written by a left wing law professor? Perhaps a professor who is quite well known in the liberal teachings and there, skilled in the art of delusion, propaganda, well versed in each? One well rehearsed and defined by the liberals as a liberal champion? One of their very own, who just might have finally seen the light of the right, and just had to let the cat out of the bag, thus the pen 🖊 name?  Hum, The possibilities are endless.
