Power, Access, Culture
The new symbol of Acadian Independence.
The only thing I would have added was plastic....Power, Access, Culture, and Plastic.
Great Job guys.....the website is coming soon.
How realistic is the notion of secession? Not very. However, there are precious few states in the union who could secede and prove themselves economically viable.....we are one. The Texas and Louisiana coasts power the entire east coast of this country. Over 30% of the country's energy supply flows through Port Fourchon alone. Up to 80% of the country's diesel refineries lie on the Texas/Louisiana border.
Keep in mind that even the suggestion of secession is seditious and hence treason...there is no 1st amendment protection in matters of national security. While the symbol itself is ambigous...I would consider this before I launched a website and I would carefully consider the semantics which constitute that website.
Exposing the identity of a CIA operative is treason as well...but the insolent bastards who committed that crime are still running this country.
It is fun to think about though. I can envision hundreds of shrimp boats forming an armada in the Mississippi to block all traffic up and down stream. Although we couldn't really stage a Boston Tea Party....dumping oil and coal into the Mississippi probably isn't a good idea. The blockade is possible though....call it "The Pirogue Armada".....we could run steel cables across the river and back it up with shrimp boats and pirogues. Then we surround Fourchon with Louisiana National Gaurdsmen and shut it off....gas prices would probably jump $2/gallon the next morning and the stock market would come unhinged. The ghostly laugh of Huey Long would echo through Wall Street. The Pentagon would probably have to bring troops back from Iraq to quell the uprising....wouldn't that be ironic?
It's mental masturbation, but it's fun. Now if Jeb Bush runs in 2008 and they steal the election again...the surreal may seem much more plausible.
