Unfortunately, In-Q-Tel / Alphabet has scrubbed the image that I was looking for.

Acepte mis disculpas de los estados ocupados de América del Norte.

If I could, I would take California out of the Union and annex it to Mexico. As it happens, I have nothing against California, but given that California began as part of Mexico anyway, shifting it back would most definitely redistribute power more evenly across the continent in general.

For some reason, I can imagine California being part of Mexico but not Texas. Not even New Mexico lol. Sorry I don't have a detailed explanation.

I wish people with Aspergers are more accepted in America by society. In Europe and Asia, having Aspergers is no big deal because Asian and Europeans are more accepting of diversity and are more tolerant societies. America is a gun toting, Bible bashing conservative nation that is less tolerant towards people that are different.

Where exactly do you get that idea? That's not true at all about Asian countries! In countries like Japan and China having a mental illness is actually considered very shameful. Also Japan is a notoriously xenophobic country. They don't even like other Asians from Asian countries like the Chinese or the Koreans.

New Mexico is more likely to join than Texas or Arizona, because it isn’t jam-packed with Trump supporters.

The correct term is "Bible thumping".
