ROFL, I'd love to see the "hard data" this Russian scholar used for his "analysis". I mean, there is science and there is science, but as some point there is also BS.

Will you have a small spot on your property where a southern transplant might pitch a well armed tent and sip water from your pond? wink [/quote]

Sure! Always room for one more. (Long guns only, please, in our generally peaceable kingdom.)

Though having the Queen on your money may take some getting used to. grin

Panarin predicts the U.S. will split into: the Pacific, the South, Texas, the Atlantic coast, the central states and the northern states, and hinted that Alaska could be Russia's for the taking.


That doesn't sound half bad. grin Don't worry folks, I'll put in a good word for anyone wanting to immigrate to Texas!

Agreed, I'll help Blast with the good word.

I've enjoyed the discussion and it has got me thinking about prior reports. Evidently, this is the fourth publication of its kind. So I'm trying to see how close the previous editions have come in their predictions. It has already been pointed out that these are the same guys that said Iraq had WMDs...

I'm willing to bet that the Farmers Almanac has been more accurate...

But if the USA was to break up wouldn't Mexico want to get Texas back again...Just as the Ruskies would attempt to get Alaska back again. Of course before the breakup the Pacific region would most likely have been sold off to the Chinese for debt cancellation. whistle

Hmm, even lower prices for Chinese imports, opportunity to learn Mandarin, and maybe dual citizenship. Sounds like a win-win for everybody. grin

I think it's more likely that Texas would take over Mexico. grin
