Repugs to rename ocean after Alzheimer's President


The House Natural Resources Committee will likely approve legislation Wednesday that would name 3.4 million square nautical miles of ocean and thousands of miles of coastline after the late President Ronald Reagan.

Rep. Darrell Issa's (R-Calif.) legislation would rename the country's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), which generally extends from three miles to 200 miles offshore, as the Ronald Wilson Reagan Exclusive Economic Zone.... The late Reagan, a Californian like Issa, established the EEZ with a 1983 presidential proclamation that declared the nation's sovereign rights for exploring, exploiting and conserving offshore resources, including energy.

Yes, the man the RNC once literally referred to as "Ronaldus Magnus" apparently doesn't have quite enough stuff named after him -- a problem Issa is eager to address by changing the name of nearly all of the water surrounding the United States. Our coastal waters would necessarily be known, forevermore, as Reagan waters.

Why? Because congressional Republicans say so.
I think Issa and the other Reagan idolaters oughta name their noses after Reagan's asshole. They spend so much time with them up it.

And Reagan was not a Californian. He was a carpetbagging transplant who waltzed in here from elsewhere, made a few B movies, and wrecked the joint.

Note to Obama: This is the most ridiculous fucking thing I've heard of lately. The nation is in the shitter and it started under Reagan. If you veto anything, veto this fucking nonsense.

The only thing I want to see St Ronnie's name on is the "Ronald Reagan Memorial Repeal Every Bad Law And Amendment Passed By Republicans From Taft-Hartley To The Present Act" when the Democrats regain the House.
