Annoyed and Irritated

A member of the Florida House of Representatives wants to rename U.S. 27, the Donald J. Trump Highway.  Rep. Anthony Sabatini, a Republican from Howie-in-the-Hills said that he wants to rename U.S. 27 the Donald J. Trump Highway in order to honor one of the greatest presidents in American history.  This is one of the longest highways in the State running North-South for 481-miles from the Georgia state line to Miami-Dade County.  There are way too many Republicans living in Florida and all the really crazy ones are in government.  He has collected a lot of signatures, but the proposal hit a bump in the road when Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay said that it’s too soon to be considering naming anything after Donald Trump and she won’t support it.

The idea of naming anything after the former President Donald Trump is so offensive that it makes me want to vomit.  Trump has been labeled, and he has proven himself to be, the worst president that the United States has ever had, he was the instigator of an insurrection and he belongs behind bars.  I could understand naming a poisonous snake after him, or maybe a sewer system, or possibly naming the town dumps in Howie-in-the-Hills the Trump Dumps.  I am much more in favor of what the Texas Representative Joaquin Castro is proposing, that the president should be proactively banned from ever seeing his name appear on a federal building.  I would take this a little further and ban his name from being used on any municipal building or any road.

  1. That naming a road after a twerp is not new. And if they were going to HAVE to name something after that orange pile of crap, they might consider the new strain of Covid. It’s potentially lethal, it makes people really sick, and it won’t go the f*ck away. The two were made for each other in my estimation. Here in Utah (which could be one of the reddest states in the Union) some dim wit named a major thoroughfare after one of the worst governors we ever had. NOBODY (on either side of the party fence) liked the guy, he was publically stupid, placed these great big (expensive) pumps near the Great Salt Lake after we had a flooding situation ONE year out of the hundred and something that Utah has been a State. Those pumps sit out there in the middle of the salt flats now, rusty and moldering, a literal marker of that governor’s idiocy. Yet there’s the road bearing his name. People, on the whole, are incredibly stupid, aren’t they?

    1. I realize that a road can get named after anyone and that this is often the case, but I just don’t want to have to look at his name every day on a road which I drive on a lot. Just seeing his name, or his picture, or hearing his voice, all of it makes me sick.
