Comment Re:Don't secede - balkanize for more Senate seats (Score 1) 1368

Of course California can divide:
Six Californias - Wikipedia

I only mention square miles for comparison purposes.

I do not care about political party dominance - I care about people being represented.
Balkanization is the only effective way that smaller territories will EVER manage to be represented by a 3rd party.
People will gravitate to the party they feel best represents them.

California is a very large state and there is plenty of right wing sentiment. There's just more left wing, and so, on a state level, left wing wins.
Go to Orange County or northern california (north of Sacramento, and you'll find all the right wing you can handle.

Comment Don't secede - balkanize for more Senate seats (Score 1) 1368

The people of the 3 states of the west coast of the United States are vastly underrepresented in the U.S. Senate.

Think about it:

area of 13 original colonies:
          338,900 square miles

area of 3 west coast states (CA, OR, WA):
          333,371 square miles

And yet, those 13 states have 26 senators, while the west coast has only 6
If the west coast really wants to make a difference for themselves, it won't be through succession, but through balkanization.

More states = better representation in Senate

Comment Goodbye Amazon Prime (Score 1) 239

I'm getting a taste of Amazon's own delivery service and I am unimpressed. I'm a Prime subscriber. I just placed a $100 order on Monday for several items, most of them Prime eligible. Some of these Prime eligible items originate 45 minute drive from where I live, so why is Amazon, using its own delivery service, taking until Friday to deliver? Prime is 2-day, not 4-day, delivery. Based on the size of the order I could have gotten free shipping without even being a Prime member, and probably gotten about the same level of service, too.
