Section. 3.
New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.
The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.
 
Does anybody here believe that, at some point in the future, we will add another state to the United States? If so, where and how? 
 

Puerto Rico has been trying torever I think.  Then you have the crazies in my state who want to break it into two states.   I'd put the chances at about 5% we ever have another state.  The Washington DC people are lunatics as well.  They are never going to be a state.  
California has also talked about 3 new states. But that won't happen either, I'd guess.

 

Yeah, that isn't happening.  We don't need any more states.

It's more like this Saints:

Me "The rent for the year is $6000"

You "That's great! I'll take it. Let's sign a 5 year lease."

Me "Wait, the $6000 is only for the rest of this year, because today is July 1. It's actually $1000 per month, so the rent for every other year will be $12000"

You "What? You cheated me!"

Me "no you misunderstood me. Do you still want the place?"

You "I'm already moved in. What choice do I have? But I don't like it!"

ONE YEAR LATER

Me "how's it going?"

You "I don't like this place but I'm stuck with it because I signed a lease. Why did I ever sign that stupid lease? I wish I could move"

Me "Sorry. But I've got good news. Expenses are down so I've decided to lower your rent to $800 a month. From now on your annual rent will be $9800."

You "It should be $6000. That's what you promised!"

Me "You're bringing that up again? We've already been through that"

You "$9800 is a big increase from $6000."

Me "But you weren't paying $6000, you were paying $12000. Why can't you be happy about the decrease?"

You "It would make logical sense for me to be happy about it. I should be happy about it. But if I express happiness, that means Obama wins. So I'd rather bring up that old misunderstanding and pretend I'm being cheated. "

That wasn't funny.  If that's what you were going for.  Or clever.  Again, if that's what you were going for.

I don't think Hillary Clinton will have a hard time saying whatever she has to say to get what she wants.


In Topic: Once the Five Guys thread, now just fast food chaos.

Today, 11:37 AM

Been doing really well on my new diet plan of not eating this crap at all but every now and then it happens or I'm weak.  Promised myself no matter what though I would stay away from McDonalds or Burger King.  Well....

 

Most recently I broke down because, hey, I'm a guy, and ordered some awesomeness that is White Castle.  Still awesome.  I felt miserable and awesome at the same time while eating.  I imagine I was like a really fat girl who eats the entire box of donuts in the car.  Don't care.  Still love it.

 

Last friday had no choice (and by no choice I mean I was hungry and needed to eat and the only thing close at the time was...) so I hit a Burger King.  Just miserable awful.  The fries were fresh out of the fryer so they were good, though they will never be as good as McD's fries, but the burger was just hideous.  Vowed again to never go to that place ever again.  I need to stick to that this time.

 

ETA:.... the whole point being that I've never had 5 guys or In&Out.  I'm going to have to try them when I get a chance but there are none near me in any reasonable amount of distance.
