The Coast Is The Most

The Left Coast, first in culture, fads & trends, & the most in bullshit.
(All the same, really.)
On Monday afternoon in San Francisco, the leaders of California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia signaled they would not wait for the United States Congress or the Canadian Parliament to act to seriously address climate change. California Governor Jerry Brown, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and (via teleconference) British Columbia’s Premier Christy Clark signed the Pacific Coast Action Plan on Climate and Energy.
The agreement is not legally binding and appropriates no money. The plan says it “is intended to spur finding new, smart ways for our governments, agencies and staff to work together,” by doing things like adding value and efficiency to climate initiatives through collaboration, while reducing “overlap and duplication of effort.” So what does it do?
Oh, what a surprise, it doesn't do thing one; as ever, all talk, no action.

And why didn't these Anglophones bring Baja California ("The Snow-Free B.C.") in on the non-action?

Final word:
53 million people living in what would be the world’s fifth-largest economy will now be participating in a “far-reaching strategic alignment to combat climate change and promote clean energy.”
Stay. Off. Our. LawnCoast.

I thought some subsection of the above was going to secede from the Untied Snakes, anywho?

Blood & Soil Editor:
We've typed it before & we'll probably have to do so again: Immigration control along the Continental Divide is a matter of time. Which side will you be on?

Not so damn fast, splitter: No Cali & y'all are 23 million, w/ a Starbucks/Boeing/Nike economy.

Luckily the State of Jefferson will be there as a buffer between us & you tired hippies.

They'll be to busy arguing which particular form of libertarianism is the libertarianist to protect you from us hippies. You better be nice to us, or we won't send any of our water your way either.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
