...and join West Virginia.I don't blame them in the least!They have as much in common w/the metro areas which politically dominate Md. as they have w/Beijing. I know the General Assembly w/never let it happen, but it's nice to dream a little...Lot of same sentiment on Eastern Shore, too, but they have nowhere to go.

Article 4, Section 3 of the US Constitution.
" - - -nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress.'
nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress.
Having taken pre-law and Constitutional history the above section occurred to me.

To say that there are some really dumb ass conservative politicos in western Maryland is a tautology. (You can look it up.)

Miz pogo noticed an article in the NYT about this and mentioned it to me. She thought that Md should just let them go. My thought was that they should be forced to live in what is to them the living hell of a liberal state.
I also thought that West Va has enough problems without adding more righty population. Miz pogo also thought to look up the populations and wealth of the three counties. They are very wealthy without much population.

You may wonder how West Virginia got formed during the Civil War given the above piece of the Constitution. Basically they violated it using the reasoning that Virginia was not a valid state as it had seceded.
This was at the same time that Congress also said that Virginia did not have the right to secede , that being one thing that the Civil War was fought over.
Nice reasoning huh? Basically it was wartime so little things like the Constitution weren't real important. It should be now.

I think I read that a couple of Virginia counties do too.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Decent people cannot fathom the amoral cruelty of the Biden regime.
