Good Luck with That

EU Boss Threatens To Break Up United States.

I really enjoyed this quotation, especially as it reveals a remarkable ignorance of the greater American public:

"In an extraordinary speech the EU Commission president said he would push for Ohio and Texas to split from the rest of America if the Republican president does not change his tune and become more supportive of the EU." 

Speaking as one who is Ohio born and raised, and who was once a resident of the state of Texas [and who has had a cousin serve as its governor], I will paraphrase Bogart in Casablanca: "Well there are certain sections of New York, Major, that I wouldn't advise you to try to invade."  There are certain parts of the USA that I wouldn't advise a European to try and direct, too.

Of course, Juncker sometimes has distractions to his official schedule.
