America could have a 51st state.
Erin Burnett tells us which one in the OutFront OutTake.
Greeley, which is the only real city in NoCo outside of Larimer (which is not in this silly proposal) has the University of Northern Colorado. 90% of the current students would suddenly be out of state residents paying higher tuition. Boom goes the largest employer in Weld. Being this far against common sense oil and gas regulations designed for safety for public health is silly. Fracking is exempt from clean water and air acts. Colorado's regulations aren't even the strictest in the states, and the US compared to other 1st world nations is loosely regulated in this sector. This idea came from a right wing organization supporting big oil and gas. Look into the evils of Colorado Counties Inc. Thanks for the laughs.Conway, jokes on you.
If North Colorado becomes a state, it, the numbers, will still be neutral 'cause Texas is about ready to secede!
Do you have any other fairy tales stories?
Where did you get the photos of the homes from? That is in no way northEASTERN Colorado landscapes. In fact I think you have a photo of Boulder in the mix. NorthEASTERN colorado is a desolate wasteland. They might want to think about not using the name NorthEASTERN Colorado and instead use "the land of hopeless despair or land with no gas stations or rest stops". If they wanna succeed and pollute themselves into oblivion why not. I think that progressives of Colorado would agree that we will not miss that swath of the state.
The name is not North Eastern Colorado but North Colorado. We are only despaired because we are not fully represented do to the likes of you. Just remember those on the plains of Colorado do in fact feed and support a vast majority within the state and YOU will miss what we do put into the Colorado coffers..
I believe North and South New Jersey have tried this before to no avail.
I know you're think such a small state that New Jersey but it is vastly different from North to South.
If California hasn't done it yet, no one is going to.
PR voted (or didn't vote, depending upon whom you ask) to join the union last November. DC is perpetually begging to join the union. There has long been talk of WA, OR, and CA all splitting into various states. The only thing different about N Colorado is that there's oil in them thar hills that are trying to seceed and form their own state– oil that stuffs the coffers in Denver.
New Yorkers have long considered splitting in two. Westchester and Rockland Counties, plus NYC and Long Island would be its own state. Everything north of Westchester and Rockland would be a different state. Or else Long Island would be its own state and would be part of New England. But 100 senators is too even a number for this to be considered.
