Mustaine's On-Stage Twinkie Rant
Dave Mustaine has once again crossed his wires on US politics in another on-stage rant, which includes blaming Obama for Twinkies going out of business. From the stage in Atlantic City last week, he suggested to the audience that the United States could fall apart: "Right now there are 47 states in the United States of America that wanna secede [withdraw from] from the United States of America. And what 'secede' actually means is that they don't wanna have any part of this bullsh-t any more. "Whether you are a Democract or a Republican or a Libertarian or an Independent, it doesn't matter. What matters is that we're Americans and we are not being treated right." In fact, all 50 states currently have petitions for secession from the US. They've been posted to the We The People website, where any petition reaching 25,000 signatures will get an official response from the White House. Of course, this doesn't mean there is a serious movement to break up the US. It's likely to be a minority of angry Republicans who are bitter at losing the recent election. Mustaine's rant didn't end there: "Did you hear that the people that make Twinkies today are going out of business after 82 years?" he asked. "It's really sad. It's an 82-year-old institution they are going out of business because of this bullsh-t that is going on right now in the government. And that means 18,000 more people are going on unemployment and it's gonna be your responsibility to pay for them. It's just not fair." Mustaine forgets to consider that the closure could be an effect of the global recession that hit America before Obama took office, and which no Western government has managed to solve.
