DYSFUNCTIONAL : Movements to Create New States Gaining Real Traction!

















TAKING ACTION FOR LIBERTY

California movement has passed first hurdle.








A movement to split California into six states has passed its first legal hurdle. 




If the proposal gathers 807,615 signatures by July 18, it may be put to a vote in the Golden State.







The initiative holds some promise. Unlike similar movements in other states, which are largely lead by grassroots activists, Six Californias is spearheaded by Timothy Cook Draper, a media-savvy venture capitalist known for being an early investor in Skype and Hotmail.







   





“It’s very difficult to govern this state,” Draper has said. 




“We have the farmers in the Central Valley, and the entrepreneurs in the Silicon Valley, and we have the Hollywood group, and we have the military suppliers down in Southern California. They all have separate interests and separate needs. It’s very difficult for one group in Sacramento to serve all those needs.”







Meanwhile, a movement to split New York into two regions is likewise gaining traction. The Libertarian Republic has also covered an attempt to create a Western Maryland.






Though Maryland’s five Western counties are largely conservative, they are increasingly finding themselves yoked with draconian gun laws and crippling taxes by their state’s Eastern majority. “Lots of people out there feel like there is no recourse, there is no hope,” a spokesman for the initiative has said.






As Democratic constituencies grow around the country, conservative regions are increasingly exploring means of legal escape. This renaissance of conservative interest in statehood and nullification is both an inevitable and welcome development. It is an essential principle of republicanism that minorities should be allowed some power to manage their own internal affairs – and not be trampled beneath sheer majoritarian rule.









Missouri is on track to pass a bill that would nullify federal gun laws.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor. 


It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 

It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
