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!

Mackay 1

: Mackay of Farr, Mackay of Strathnaver
1 TSP Mackay refers to a common ancestry with the family of Forbes. According to TSP Forbes, this may have been through O'Connor of Ochonochor a temp Malcolm Canmore who r. 1058-1093 whose 3 sons were progenitors of the Forbeses, the Urquharts and the Mackays. We hope to show the connection in due course, purely 'for fun' of course as, in practice, reliable pedigrees for all 3 families can be traced no further back than the 13th century. [As reported on Macgregor1, Douglas's 'Baronage of Scotland' refers to a claim that the Mackays were an early branch of the Macgregors. Such was probably a conceit of an early Macgregor historian.]
