NYC to become the 51st state of the US??
There is talk in the news, again, about Queens councilman Peter Vallone Jr. who is re-introducing legislation to begin looking into the possibility of New York secession from New York State to become the 51st state of America.
This idea was brought up some years back , I realized when I googled the subject, so the idea is nothing new, but it seems to be regaining popularity again according to a report I heard from News radio station 1010 WINS this morning.
Is this actually feasible? Or is this man just crazy with this proposal? Maybe it's possible. . . . Hong Kong existed as a seperate entity from China for over a hundred years.
