One for the Gipper

Congress is considering legislation to name our federal ocean waters the Ronald Wilson Reagan Exclusive Economic Zone.

The sponsor is Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

The bill already has cleared the House Natural Resources Committee and is now awaiting consideration on the floor.

Here's a committee report with more details, including remarks from two members of Congress who think naming the 200-mile zone after the former president is a lousy idea.

The dissenting op is the important read here. Vote NO.

What a disgusting idea, not only is it inappropriate considering the history but makes for another ridiculous acronym.

Now then, naming it the Russell Wilson Economic Zone makes a lot more sense, no?

That people actually get paid money to spend the time to make worthless crap up is beyond. Hours will be wasted on this effort.AC
