Here's some interesting facts about the bill that the republicans in the house proposed today to ban gay marriage:

--less than 5% of the US population is gay.

--55% of Americans support gay marriage.

--nearly 8% of our population is unemployed.

--Republicans were elected on a promise of jobs in 2010 and have a 54% majority in the house.

--They have voted to repeal Obamacare 38 times but they have they have offered zero (0) jobs bills.

Looks like they still favor rhetoric over reality.

Reagan intended to run in 1976, which he did but was supposed to be an open prez election (no incumbant) but Dick Nixon resigned and Gerald Ford became the incumbant, incumbants in the 20th century had not lost a primary (they did in the 19th) and Reagan and Ford had a bitter fight and Reagan had to wait until 1980.

Ronnie is the only union leader (Screen Actor's Guild) to ever hold the office as president.
He at one time was a democrat. I know because he was asked one time about it. Paraphrasing his words he said "I never left the democrat party it left me." I can't really remember when he was a democrat but I thought it was when he ran for governor of California or President the first time and lost. I nay be wrong about when he was a democrat but like I said at one time he was.

He switched to the GOP in the 60's like his Southern counterparts because of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Ok, I knew at one time he was the longest in office. So Byrd did pass him up. So who is behind Byrd now anybody close to beating him. Probably because there is a lot of career politicians up there.

Yes I remember that Ford didn't want to run with him as his Vice President he wanted to actually be Co-President. Equal partners and that wasn't going to happen.

The guy closest to Byrd was Hawaii senator Inouye and he died in December, he passed up Thurmond as well. Right now Patrick Leahy is the longest serving Senator, 38 years and running.

1962 was when he switched, ended his acting career the same time, he was lobbied to move to GOP. He got lucky in 1966 against the sitting governor, Edmund Brown, the current CA gov's dad. Brown was extremely popular, knocked off Nixon in 1962 but the Watts riots of 1965 and Brown out of the country on vacation at the time started his downfall, he was going for a 3rd term against RR.

Reagan ran on law and order and had difficulty the law was overworked with riots and anti war protesters as well, he had a rough time as governor, esp the first term.

Ok, I knew Leahy had been in there a while but didn't know how long. I have a solution to one of the problems in the Congress and Senate. Make it a part time Jon like in the states. Have a three month session 5 days a week and take care of all of the voting business, then if needed for anything in the nine month off period the president could call them in special session or emergency session if it is of national security issues. That way I think they would get more done and then spend time with the people that vote for them.make it a two term limit. That way they wouldn't spend the entire time in there campaigning for the next election.

Hell, Harvey, it's already a part time job. They're just getting paid a full time salary for it.

True that's funny. The only work three day weeks, get 10 holidays a year, and about 3 months vacation in total. Sounds about right.
