    Will Hollywood secede from the Union?

    We can always hope but I doubt it.

    I'm not even sure they have the power to do that. 

    That whole state is so deep in debt they would never survive without Federal assistance.  If they lose their food stamps who is going to feed all those people?  Maybe Mexico but I doubt that too.

    If everyone in the country quit going to the movies for six months Hollywood would cease to exist anyhow.  So many worship movie stars they break down in tears when some Hollywood celebrity threatens to move to Canada.  Give me a break is all I can say.

    If they want to leave let them go.

      The problem with Hollywood moving is all that Star Power could get  concentrated. Critical mass. Chain reaction. Messing with fire there.

    On behalf of Canada, I offer to adopt them.  Increases my chances of running into Leonardo DiCaprio so I'm down.

    "Hollywood" films half of their movies and TV shows in Canada already because it's cheaper, so they might as well pack up the whole kit 'n' kaboodle and head North.

    If California secedes and takes its 55 electoral votes with them, the rest of the American left will never win an election again.

    I will help them pack!

    C'mon, stop w/the hyperbole.  Hollywood isn't going anywhere.  Hollywood is & will always remain part of the American scene.  Liberals are just going through their angst period the way Conservatives did when Obama was elected.  It is all part of venting which is allowed in America.   Let it out, shout it out!  Now, does everyone feel better!
