Well, there was another guy named Vladimir... in this case Vladimir Zhirinovsky... who twenty years ago pretty much threatened WWIII to get Alaska and everything else Russia used to have back when he ran for President of Russia.  (Citation needed I know, but I remember this from seeing it on ABC News one night when I was a teen.)  Needless to say he lost, and aside from another run a few years later I'd thought he'd faded away...

....until he waltzed into Crimea the day it decided to raise the Russian flag cheering their decision.  Its scary because if he's in Putin's ear... and at this point I think he is... then who knows, they might actually try it.
 
2014-03-25 12:44:10 AM  
It'll never happen. 600,000 Americans died horribly 150 years ago to prove that it can't happen. That means you, Texas, California, and the rest of the idiots who think they can leave. The only way out is revolution, and I strongly suggest that nobody try to go that route, because it will make the Civil War look like a slapfight.

"Groups Siberian russians crossed the Isthmus (now the Bering Strait) 16-10 thousand years ago. Russian began to settle on the Arctic coast, Aleuts inhabited the Aleutian Archipelago.

Fedorov during the expedition Shestakov and DI Pavlutski 1729-1735 years...Vote for secession of Alaska from the United States and joining Russia."

Something about this petition text leads me to believe it was originally written in a language other than English (I'm not saying it was Russian, but it could be Russian or another Slavic language) and then fed the original text into Google Translate.

FTFA is well on its way to getting enough signers to require an official response from the White House

How many times will the WH have to ignore or refuse to respond to petitions before people realize the threshold, and the entire concept of the site, is meaningless?  Nearly a quarter of petitions that pass the threshhold never get a response, and that's not even including the ones that get a response that essentially says "we can't/won't answer you."  The site's a gimmick and the admin will only respond to what it wants to respond to.

I thought it was common knowledge theat the White House was not going to respond to petitions to abolish the IRS, lower the age of consent to 15, and bring Firefly back.

The site is a good idea, but it did bring another forum for the common clay of the new west.

On a serious note, I do wonder at what point Russia will invade Alaska to try to take it back.

Common knowledge is too much to ask for from modern reporters who no longer need to have any knowledge of the topic they're writing about.  He also got the threshold wrong in the sub-heading, but that's just bad proofreading.

Also, many of the ignored petitions are actually non-trollish stuff, even if not things the WH can/will do anything about.  Not banning e-ciggs.  Ending US military discrimination against atheists.  Allowing Tesla to sell direct to consumers.  Firing the US attorneys who drove Aaron Swartz to suicide. ETC.

Yeah.  Because Russia's stance on gay marriage is the single difference between them and the United States.

Seriously, with Putin's madness and overreach, and the potential for some really stiff sanctions to be levied against them, Russia is creeping closer and closer to the halcyon days of the 1990s where breadlines, poverty and starvation were an all-too common sight.

Actually, that was Tina Fey, playing Sarah Palin who made that comment.  What Sarah Palin actually said was along the lines that she was qualified to be president, because Alaska had to carry out a whole lot of foreign affairs with Canada and Russia, and that you could see Russia from parts of Alaska.  Technically you can see part of Russia, from part of Alaska, but rather or not dealing with crab fishermen who get arrested for trespassing into Russian waters is the same thing as handling a treaty negotiation is doubtful.

Don't you see?! That's why it's vital that we rape the everliving fark out of all natural resources in Alaska, pack the densest shiat-for-brains possible in the local yokels, ans sprinkle it with seasonings of oil spills, nuclear waste, and maybe some random industrial horrors for spice.

We bought Alaska, there is no succession to Russia legality to really discuss, at best you could justify succession to become your own country (good luck with that, since you rely so heavily on support).

For everyone signing that succession, nothing stopping you from applying to become citizens of Russia (again, good luck with that) and moving there!

Frankly, I think anyone that calls for secession should be seriously investigated.

You're really going to keep white-knighting for that crackpot? shanrick is the first person I've seen that actually thought Palin said that, and he may have been trolling. We all know it wasn't her, but the point, the reason it's mentioned so often, is that she might as well have. Trying to use geographical proximity to Russia as a foreign policy credential is not any less dumb than that. It's a convenient shorthand for her laughable notion of what makes someone qualified to lead. FFS, she was asked what magazines or newspapers she reads and thought it was a trick question.
 
2014-03-25 10:10:55 AM  
Wouldn't it be easier for the White House to just say...

"The renouncement of your citizenship has been accepted. You have 10 days to vacate the country or you will be detained and deported by ICE.

Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out,
Barack Obama"

They could do that for all the people in different states that signed all the different petitions to secede the US after Obama took office.

The fact that Russia and Alaska are near each other is not what makes that statement a piece of weapons grade stupidity, demonstrating an utterly childlike grasp of anything more important than "how to fleece stupid right wingers out of a few dollars", and an executive ability better suited to driving a novelty RV around than running a superpower.

The Kanaka Maoli (Original People) of Hawaii know that petitions don't mean SHIAT to the U.S.   Hawaii was a sovereign nation when the Europeans landed there.  The Hawaiian monarchy and society went through changes in order to relate with the European and American "Big Brothers".  King Kalakaua was the FIRST monarch of any sovereign nation to totally circumnavigate the planet, and was accepted as the monarch of a sovereign nation by all of the nations he visited.

Of course the idea of mutual respect and cooperation is a foreign concept to greedy white xtians (what, you think that missionaries go around the world to "save souls"?!  Maybe they do now, but way back when it was to turn native peoples into docile slaves).  By 1893 those greedy white xtians had forced Queen Lili'uokalanki to abdicate her throne using threats of violence against the Kanaka. The call for annexation by those greedy white xtians came in 1897 and a petition went out among the Kanaka (who had had their voting rights severely disenfranchised already by those greedy white xtians) opposing annexation.  Alas, it didn't matter.

If ANY state has a right to secede from the U.S. it's Hawaii.

This has got to be the stupidest line of thinking that I have ever heard.


Agreed. Actually, the reason it's mentioned so often is because what she actually said was infinitely stupider:

COURIC: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign-policy experience. What did you mean by that?
PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land - boundary that we have with - Canada. It, it's funny that a comment like that was - kind of made to cari - I don't know. You know. Reporters -
COURIC: Mocked?
PALIN: Yeah, mocked, I guess that's the word, yeah.
COURIC: Explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.
PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our- our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They're in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia-
COURIC: Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?
PALIN: We have trade missions back and forth. We- we do- it's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where- where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is- from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to- to our state.

Unless the governor of Alaska has been promoted to head of NORAD-NORTHCOM and nobody thought to tell me about it, that is just unfathomably stupid. Russian doesn't give a happy monkeyfark about the idiot governor of Alaska.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: flak attack: the_foo: We all know it wasn't her, but the point, the reason it's mentioned so often, is that she might as well have

This has got to be the stupidest line of thinking that I have ever heard.

Agreed. Actually, the reason it's mentioned so often is because what she actually said was infinitely stupider:

COURIC: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign-policy experience. What did you mean by that?
PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land - boundary that we have with - Canada. It, it's funny that a comment like that was - kind of made to cari - I don't know. You know. Reporters -
COURIC: Mocked?
PALIN: Yeah, mocked, I guess that's the word, yeah.
COURIC: Explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.
PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our- our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They're in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia-
COURIC: Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?
PALIN: We have trade missions back and forth. We- we do- it's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where- where do they go?

She's about as bad as Bush or Barry when they get the teleprompter turned off. Want to know the TRUE ability of your candidate? "Accidentally" unplug the teleprompter. If they remain cogent and intelligent, and can keep their speeches and debates from devolving into a mess of filler words... then you have a winner.

And because this is rather long and unwieldy in normal conversation, "I can see Russia from my house!" serves as a representative shorthand for the jaw-dropping stupidity contained in this conversation.

To the person who created this petition and all those who signed it.

You are all traitors to the United States and should lose your citizenship along with all rights, and immediately exiled to Russia.Good by and good riddance.

DiamondDave: shanrick: propasaurus: Stupid libs! She never said that!!!

Sarah Palin said, and I quote:

"I can see Russia from my back porch."

Try again, dipshiat.

"They're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska":

Syrrh: Don't you see?! That's why it's vital that we rape the everliving fark out of all natural resources in Alaska, pack the densest shiat-for-brains possible in the local yokels, ans sprinkle it with seasonings of oil spills, nuclear waste, and maybe some random industrial horrors for spice.

Then the Russians won't want it!

Turn it into a shiathole... so it can be America's shiathole.


I don't think you've thought your cunning plan all the way through.

Russians: "Hey! It's a shiathole! Ahhh... smells like home! OURS!"

By the way: it is most certainly a joke originating in Russia. Whole petition is directly (and badly) translated from Russian. Even original text in Russian was written rather poorly, judging by how it ended up in English. The links to the petition are very wide-spread in Russian social networks, people click for lulz. Well, some, of course, click because they are a bunch of stupid arseholes, but most click just for lulz.

That's what I love when people get all upset because she is being misquoted:  It's actually being generous.

Hey, thanks! I've wondered what Palin's house looked like.
