Secession Can't Seem To Get Any Respect

Despite there never having been a successful secession from these United States of America since the American Revolution, Vermont secessionists like the baas of the non-existent Second Vermont Republic, the Dixie singin' Thomas H. Naylor, continues in his effort, along with a "small community" of Vermont secessionists, to make more out of his movement than any reasonably sane person would think could ever be acceptable to the "reality based community."

Tommy Boy has spent years churning out ridiculously redundant essays that get smeared across the Internet on various self publishing sites like CounterPunch.com. One philosopher that he's absurdly sought to hitch his intellectual wagon to is Albert Camus. His most recent essay is typical Naylor navel gazing in which he reveals his own whiny devotion to hopelessness here. Given his string of failures over the years in peddling the myth of the viabilty of secession in America, I'm not so surprised at the depressing tone of his missive to those outside of his immediate salon. He's correctly guessed that his direction will lead to nothing.

As if to underscore the absurdity of his efforts, I came across this ironic bit of Interflotsam:
On November 7, 2005, Hardin County, Ohio became a country. A little more than five months later the country of Hardin was no more. (Wikipedialand source here and here)
And that's probably the best it's ever gonna get to be, Tommy Boy.

Blog Note: I expect to be on hiatus for the near future but will, of course, make every attempt to bring you the latest on secesher ideologues like the not-ever-likely-to-be Senator Robert "Needed Killin" Wagner or his inspiration, the Magnolia Vermonter, Thomas H. Naylor, as need arises.

I've received a comment from an anti-Semitic blogger at VTCommons. I know, I know, that doesn't narrow it down very much but given that it was an oddly needy sexual solicitation of sorts, I won't embarrass the fool further by revealing its identity.

Oh, and it knows that I never publish its comments but this one's a keeper, as is the IP.
