nevada used to be part of new mexico

New Mexico used to be part of Mexico.

Mexico used to be a part of Spain.

Spain used to be part of Pangea

Pangea used to be part of the space-time singularity that preceded the Big Bang.

The singularity used to be a gleam in God's eye.


The gleam in god's eye used to be part of The Time Cube.

And New Hampshire.
And there's Louisiana, named after a French king.

Arizona?  I swear, is there anything good that has ever come out of that state?  I mean, sure, it was named after an AWESOME sweet tea, but seriously--Las Vegas is a shiathole and don't even get me started on Provo.  And if I wanted to be proselytized by Amish, I'd farking move to Brazil.

ongbok: Skleenar: I swear by Great Maron's Ghost, is there anything good that has ever come out of New Mexico?

As the only state in the union named after a foreign land, this shouldn't really be any surprise.  But seriously, how we even tolerate that nutria-ridden, Francophone province in these United States is beyond me.  We should give it back to the Incans.

New York, New Jersey. How about a state named after an English King?


Georgia is named after King George II, and North and South Carolina are possibly named after King Charles I (or rather, the Latin form, Carolus).

Wait....wait, wait, wait.  You are trying to say that King Charles was a transvestite?  This is just more proof that the Republican agenda includes hiding the truth of history from us all.

Sure, but the guy I was responding to said "How about a state named after an English King?"

"Carolus" might count as foreign. How about Maryland, possibly named after Queen Henrietta Maria of France (though I think it's more likely it was named after the religious figure)?

Silly headline aside, FTFA:  "I did it as a symbol, I guess, that I do not like the Republican Party and what they stand for today," Wagner said. "I've been a Republican all my life. My dad was active (in the GOP) in the state of Maine where I was born. It was more of a moderate, liberal Republican Party."

Well, that explains a lot.  Where even our "tea party" Republican governor is less crazy than most of the GOP.

diaphoresis: Rino leaves GOP. Sounds like good news, but I could be wrong.


Ah yes, the anger portion of grief.  I'm pretty sure we'll get to bargaining when they show up on Wagner's door with a boombox like John Cusak in Say Anything.

Margaret Chase Smith and Olympia Snowe. Just saying. Republican women from Maine tend to be sort of level headed.

I'm not surprised that Republicans haven't gotten around to renaming the July as "Reagan" because July named after Marxist/Fascist/doesn't matter cuz not American Julius Caesar.
Followed by renaming August to Reagan.
Then maybe renaming January and June (FALSE GODS!) to Reagan.

Renaming March to Cheney would make some sense.

He wants to repeal child labor laws and took down a mural because it was too pro-labor.  Sorry Mainer.  Own it.  He's freaking crazy.  Even Scott Walker hasn't tried to take us back to a time when adorable cockney urchins cleaned our chimneys.

You seriously want to stop it there, you couldn't do maybe Pangea -> Molten Earth -> Sol System -> Galaxy -> Universe -> Big Bang -> Gleam in G-d's eye? You had to stop it at Pangea? You bastard! :-P
