IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

National Joe Day

Enjoy a cup of “joe” with all of your friends named Joe, Jo, Joette, Joey, Joseph, Josephine, Johanna, Joann, Jodie or any variant of the name Joe every year on March 27th, National Joe Day.
According to the Social Security Administration, the name Joseph was ranked No. 6 from 1893 to 1899 behind John, William, James, George, and Charles.  In 1910, it moved to No. 5.  From 1911 to 2005 it was ranked No. 12 or lower.
I don't remember the last time I voted for any candidate because they had a (R) behind their name. And the last three days of bullshit in the news is why. They can't get anything done. Go back 15 years or so. Nothing comes to mind. Not since George the Second was on TV hugging Ol' Fat Ted. I'm pretty sure I've posted here before that I admire the Democrats for their ability to stick together to get stuff done. I loath their politics and most of their so called leaders make me want to vomit but by God they can move their agenda forward.  
Not so much the Repubs. If you're honest with yourself you have to admit their so called leaders are pretty much useless. They just bobbled the promise they have been screeching about for 6 plus years. I am not holding the Prez solely responsible for this mess but since he is the "head" of the party he gets a big fat NO oon my Trump-O-Meter. The rest of you (R) punkin' heads best get your shit in one sock or you're done. 

Civic Club Meeting Thursday Evening. 7:00 for pizza 7:30 for the meeting and voting in of new slate of officers.

Donald told you that he would get something done. He has a majority in the house and he claimed to be a great negotiator, a businman. He ran on getting rid of healthcare and he can't do it. Losers. worthless hateful losers.
That's what you get when you vote a straight ticket. you get what you desrve.

It is funny how this is being looked at so negatively. The system worked like it should. It was a bad plan so it didn't get passed. That was actually refreshing. If you recall, ObamaCare was jammed down people's throats and the majority didn't even read it. An dot was voted on in the middle of the night. Would you have preferred that happen again?

Now they need to roll up their sleeves and put together a plan that makes everyone happy. Work together.

You guys act like that was the only shot. A new plan will come together, trust me.

And there is a lot more to work on than health care.

not rushed? Do you not remember Rand Paul walking around the capitol days before the vote trying to find a copy of the bill bc he had never seen it? And wholesale changes were made trying to appease the hard right the day before the vote was to take place. R's have the house, senate & pres but can't pass a bill that they have been - or should have been, given the rhetoric - for 7 years. You are correct that it was a terrible bill and shouldn't have passed. Again though, that's all the Rs had after all this time? SAD!!!

Exactly! They had two full terms to fix it and they can't.

You can happily mark this down as Barak Obama's FIRST post-presidential victory. Congratulations to you and your party for making it happen!

Now on to Russia and nepotism!
