The *Untied* States of America, Part 2….Eh?

Hey comrades amigos kids! Yesterday, we explored The Republic of Texas and the new Russian Alaska circa 2010, as predicted by Igor Panarin. If you will remember, the deteriorating economy, immigration, and a lack of morality are going to swirl together and turn into a new American civil war. While we are at each others’ throats, foreign powers will swoop in and take over.

Today, I thought we would examine the new Central North American Republic (let’s call it CNAR), which will be part of Canada or under Canadian influence.

CNAR

Just as in The Republic of Texas and the new Russian Alaska, politicians in the CNAR will try to adjust to the new reality. Let’s begin with Senators Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts. Hey, guys! Looks like you’re not in Kansas anymore! Eh?

The *Untied* States of America, Part 1

Kids, while we were all celebrating 2009, I’m afraid that we weren’t paying attention to what 2010 is going to bring. From The Wall Street Journal:

MOSCOW — For a decade, Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting the U.S. will fall apart in 2010.

…snip…

Prof. Panarin, 50 years old, is not a fringe figure. A former KGB analyst, he is dean of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s academy for future diplomats.

…snip…

A polite and cheerful man with a buzz cut, Mr. Panarin insists he does not dislike Americans. But he warns that the outlook for them is dire.

Uh-oh! SHOCK2┬áHere’s Panarin’s new map (found at the above link):

That got me thinking about how politicians will react to the new landscape. It seems some of them have already gotten word of the changes, and I have photos of how they are adapting.

Burris Tsuris

tsuris: NOUN: trouble; aggravation.

From The Washington Post:

With five days until the start of the 111th Congress, the corruption scandal surrounding Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) has complicated what was already shaping up to be a dramatic start in the Senate.

Senate Democrats are left to deal with the mess of the successions of President-elect Barack Obama, Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton and Interior Secretary-designate Ken Salazar.

But the most high-profile scenario involves what Democrats will do if Roland W. Burris, Blagojevich’s choice, makes good on his pledge to appear Tuesday on Capitol Hill to try to take the oath of office for Obama’s seat.

2008: End of an Error

I was a little sentimental, as I sometimes get at the end of the year, and I thought a little retrospective sing-along might be in order.

To the tune of My Way, written by Revaux and Claude Fran├žois, English words by Paul Anka, as performed by Francis Albert Sinatra:
