Visitors since 22nd March 2009:

It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Break the two party system!

So people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

BEB1844 shows the wives in reverse order, but still with the children by Joanna, and identifies Joanna as daughter of Thomas Radcliffe of Wimberley and widow of Edmund Radcliffe of Todmorden. That seems wrong. We follow BLG1886 which follows part of BLG1952 Radclyffe of Foxdenton and Hyde although that article is not fully consistent within itself.
