Secession 'n such

Chessie Cat enjoys a good secession
tweet as much as I do.
I've been having fun on social media with the secession fever created through Obama's White House petition site. Texas has crossed the threshold that's supposed to trigger a presidential response.

We're still waiting.

Meanwhile, I'm hearing anecdotal reports of people moving into gold, guns and silver (while others are  moving into more of it). Hearing people talk of shuffling their wealth into hard assets is probably a better indicator of an awakening that uncertainty lies ahead than the petitions are.

But the secession petitions seem to be causing stir. And they probably wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for the Obama's administration gimmicky use of the White House website to let people post all kinds of petitions. Some serious. Some stupid.

Time will tell how serious these petitions and petitioners are, and how seriously they're taken.  It'll be interesting to see how the president responds. If he does.
