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

Change 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!

Ireland 1

: Ireland of Bewsey, Ireland of Garston, Ireland of Hale, Ireland of Hutt, Ireland of Lydiate
BLG1886 reports that the family "was founded by Sir John de Ireland, living temp. William the Conqueror" who r. 1066-1087. It then identifies the Adam of Hutt who m. Avena Holland as son of Sir John Ireland of Hutt and grandson of Sir Robert Ireland of Hutt. However, it appears that Adam's family name was Austin and that he probably became known as de Ireland only after he returned to Lancashire from Ireland where he had been brought up to claim the inheritance of Hale through his mother.
