Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/25/2004: Serious? Or just a big leg-pulling exercise?

Christian Exodus

ChristianExodus.org is orchestrating the move of 50,000 or more Christians to one of three States for the express purpose of dissolving that State’s bond with the union. The three States under consideration are Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina. The exact destination will be chosen by vote of our membership. Our move will commence when the federal government forces sodomite marriages on our local communities or once we reach the 50,000-member mark, whichever comes first.
I'm not sure how seriously to take this one, myself. I'm voting for hoax right now.....

This is a carbon copy of what some Libertarians are doing in another state. They just selected it a couple of months ago, but I can't remember which one.

In the back of my mind I'm thinking New Hampshire, but Vermont is also a possibility. One of those small New England states between Maine and Massachusetts/New York.

It was New Hampshire which is fairly libertarian to start with, something that will affect the ability of newcomers to make any changes.

I would vote for Mississippi, if they want a suggestion. Let them work on the casinos on the Gulf Coast and see what happens when the US military is withdrawn.
