Gnome Ann is an island. AN ISLAND
742 days ago
Lake Kittamaqundi originally featured an island known as Nomanisan Island, named by Columbia resident Alan Levine in a 1980 contest held by the Columbia Association. The island's name came from the phrase "No Man Is an Island" by John Donne.[28][29] The gap between the island and the east bank of the lake was filled, creating a peninsula, during the dredging of the lake in 2010.

In the words of Andrew Johnson, if I am to be shot at, I want Gnome Ann to be in the way of the bullet.

Politics are hard: every so often, there's a mass-shooting and Congressmen have to comment on it, despite having collectively taken $3,782,803 in campaign contributions. (more…)

The flights operated between NYC and Chicago and LA and San Francisco, came with complimentary cigars and specially prepared meals, and were off-limits to women and children; some services were co-branded with the Wall Street Journal. (more…)

Two crazy liberals, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush talk about immigration

1 Comment
bush

Gavin Newsom posted this video to Facebook, saying "This video is shocking. The way that Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush talked about immigration and the US/Mexico border in 1980 -- during a presidential debate -- you would think that they were Democrats. What has become of the Republican Party?"

I like Vernon Reed's suggestion: "I think that the Democratic Convention should open with a montage of things that St Ronald Reagan said - that the Republican'ts would now take as the signs of a traitor to the Republican 'cause,' such as it is..... This would get INCREDIBLE press coverage - and be hilarious!!!"

Bill Shuster [R-PA]'s campaign, together, the two led a House Transportation Committee vote against a government study on the effects of passenger legroom on aviation safety, laughing at the idea that close-packed seats might make it hard to evacuate a plane.
