It sure does look like a busy week for the hard-working hard workers in the House of Representatives. Via Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, here's a glance at their very busy schedule. As you can see, Republicans are, as always, focused on job creation, which is why they will be taking up eight different bills to re-name post offices. For America!
Though the ultimate aim was to have every post office, airport and high school in the country, as well as all the ships in the U.S. Navy, named for St. Ronnie, even the most zealous Reaganists had to acknowledge that certain practical difficulties might arise once every post office was called the Ronald Reagan Post Office and every airport Ronald Reagan International and every warship USS Ronald Reagan. So now the plan is to replace the terms &#039;Post Office&#039; with &#039;Reagan Office&#039;, &#039;Airport&#039; with &#039;Reaganport&#039; and &#039;high school&#039; with &#039;Reagan School.&#039; &#039;United States Ships&#039; will henceforth be &#039;Ronald Reagan Ships&#039;.
Is it just me, or does the <a href="http:\/\/docs.house.gov\/billsthisweek\/20141117\/h3398_sus_xml%20-%20Girls%20Count%20Act.pdf" target="_blank">Girls Count bill, H.R.3398</a> look suspiciously like a &quot;demon pass&quot; motion?
Can&#039;t much complain about the actual substance of it though, such as it is.
&quot;Can&#039;t shoot &#039;em except HAH! yes you CAN!&quot;
&quot;Mind if I call you <strike>Bruce</strike> Ronnie, keep things simple?&quot;
How I know you&#039;re making them up: They should be designated simply S., not S.R.
But he&#039;s got to get elected first.
Be careful now. You don&#039;t want to get your post satirizing the anti-science caucus in Congress deleted like mine was. Apparently that subject contains a hidden third rail.
Can they also squeeze in a couple more &quot;hearings&quot; that involve hectoring Obama Administration folks? I mean, some of these folks haven&#039;t gotten the video clips they need for their 2016 re-election campaign.
I&#039;ll bet Obama is making them work part-time so he won&#039;t have to give them benefits.
&quot;Federal Duck Stamp Act of 2014, as amended&quot; The hard part is keeping the ducks still long enough to lick the back and stick it on. They also don&#039;t fit easily in mailboxes.
Will the post offices all be named after Reagan? That seems like the only possible reason to do something besides voting to repeal Obamacare.
Grover Norquist wants to name a Post Office in every state after Ronnie the senile.
<em>The land conveyed under this section shall be used only as a shooting range.</em>
Isn&#039;t that already Idaho&#039;s state motto?
Can we get them to rename it Reaganacare? Maybe then it will stop killing all those people, if they just try this one crazy trick!
Now let&#039;s fair here. You left out a few pieces of legislation that currently appear on the House calendar.
HR 5547 The house bill to study and determine - SQUIRREL! - was that a squirrel?
HR 5549 House study on workplace intimidation to create a more complete how-to guide.
HR 5553 The House study on the African American Electorate and inconclusiveness, subtitled &quot;Negroes, can&#039;t live with &#039;em, can&#039;t live without &#039;em&quot;
One of the renamed Post Offices will be the &quot;Col. M.J. &#039;Mac&#039; Dube, USMC Post Office&quot; somewhere in Ca.
I&#039;m going to have to start getting my specialty California produce mailed from the Mac Dube Post Office.
