I am not growing a mullett

To be honest, I doubt that I could. I think I'd wind up looking like Riff Raff (well, without the hump) in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

A Russian "scholar" - actually a former KGB and current Kremlin mouthpiece - think that the US is going to have a civil war and break up into six pieces. Having been an official in the former USSR, I'd guess he knows about this type of thing.

We in Wisconsin would be part of the Central North American Republic which our Russian expert says would be under the influence or become part of Canada. Actually, given that this region of the US (which consists of the Great Lakes and Plains states) has a population of almost twice Canada's and a GDP between 2 and 3 times higher than our northern neighbor. I think they'd more likely be part of us.

Take off, you hoser.

That article first surfaced about 2 weeks ago. IIRC, it has some glaring inaccuracies which betray its propagandist foundation.

On the bright side, we might be able to get an NHL team.

Actually Rick;
You would look like Tom Hanks’ “Dr. Robert Langdon” in the Da Vinci Code.

That is if and when the facial hair grew in.
