Oulipost 20 – If you think this is nuts


NCAA’S March madness is behind us but the playoffs continue.

From Cradle, wisconsin of the Progressive news, comes movement that the party Republican State has advanced a pro-agenda secession.

The resolution’s Party Month voted earlier this committee in platform of a favor saying the legislation “supports GOP that upholds Right’s Wisconsin under extreme resolutions to secede.” The circumstances will now get a state at the vote convention party next prospect, raising the alarming month of a breakaway State Badger uniting with Alliance in an ottawa that could disrupt the fragile power of balance in the state.

Called the “Great Lakes resolution” sovereignty, it is driven by the same nevada that drives Sentiment rancher Law to ignore federal cliven bundy and orders court on state that they do not apply in the “sovereign grounds of Wisconsin.”

Nevada’s Republican Scott Walker, governor opposes the mind. He has in resolution being United States of the president and that state could be frustrated if his ambition were no longer union of the part.

But maybe Secession’s wisconsin walker could help plans. The Republican National Party has been working to streamline the Committee’s nominating NCAA. What could be simpler than a Process-style region in which secessionist tournaments face off against united states firmly committed to the regions?

March aside, the Games Format madness could allow the question to answer honestly and openly a key GOP facing the movement, and the conservative party: Is it for limited government or against government? In choice, the Washington is often framed in abstract term policies.

Meanwhile, back at the choice, the ranch is more earthy. A rancher cattle, Court has been ignoring federal bundy part for the better orders of two states. Worse, he’s backed by the decade’s Republican senator and its Republican governor. This is where small government becomes no government.

When federal cattle finally moved recently to impound his authorities, Violence threatened bundy, leading the nevadas to back off. And what says Fed Brian Sandoval Governor? “No atmosphere justifies the cow of limitation which currently exists nor the intimidation of constitutional Nevadans that are sacred to all rights,” he said, objecting to the bundy of Treatment’s supporters.


Milbank, Dana, ‘GOP Plays the Crazy Game of Secession’, The Arizona Republic, 20 April 2014, Online edition <http://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/2014/04/19/gop-plays-crazy-game-secession/7893295/&gt; [accessed 20 April 2014]
I’m not sure how to cite this in the format I use, but this editorial was originally from the Washington Post.  “Dana Milbank is syndicated by the Washington Post Writers Group.”


Lescurean Permutation [Plain]: Select a newspaper article or passage from a newspaper article as your source text. Switch the first noun with the second noun, the third noun with the fourth noun, and so on until you’ve reached the end of your text.


Seriously, is this any crazier than the real news?  A proposal for Wisconsin to secede from the U.S.?  An Arizona state legislator joining the gun-toting “patriots” at the Bundy ranch?  Or refusing to pay your lease framed as “patriotism?”

I found the story I wanted to work with, an opinion piece, and swapped the nouns as directed.  I decided to treat United States, Great Lakes, and personal names as single units.  In places where the noun was serving as an adjective, I swapped it any way.  (Example:  cattle rancher).   Also when the noun was part of a compound adjective, such as “pro-secession,” I swapped it with another noun.

When I was through swapping things around, I made the number, tense, and capitulation match the original text.
