Route 15 Could Become Ronald Reagan Memorial Highway

Republican legislators propose naming a highway in northwestern New Jersey for the nation's 40th president.

"The Great Communicator" may soon have a stretch of New Jersey highway named after him. 

Under a bill introduced earlier this year by Republican legislators in the Deomcrat-controlled Assembly, the late President Ronald Reagan would have a state highway in northwestern New Jersey named in his honor, according to a report in the Star-Ledger. 

Only one former president — Warren Harding — has received such as an accolade in New Jersey, with a stretch of Route 48 in Salem County named in his honor.

If approved by the state Assembly and Senate, and then signed by Gov. Christie, the legislation would designate Route 15, a 19.5-mile state highway in northwestern New Jersey, as the "Ronald Reagan Memorial Highway."

Reagan died in 2004.

Billy-Not-His-True-Name has never been to Cuba, and he knows very little about what went on there in the past and goes on there now, including how repressive the Castro regime has been for over 50 years. Ask yourself why some of the Cuban people have risked life and limb attempting to escape from the island country over the past fifty years. Part of the deal Kennedy made with Khrushchev to resolve the removal of the Soviet Union's missiles in Cuba during the so-called crisis was that 1) The United States would remove its missiles in Turkey (pointed at the Soviet Union) and 2) The United States would never attack or invade Cuba. This averted the so-called crisis; but if Kennedy only knew at the time that the U.S. arsenal of intercontinental ballistic missiles far out numbered the Soviet Union's arsenal he could have blown the Soviet Union back to the stone age, and included Cuba in the mix as well. Castro would have had to resort to shining shoes to survive. There are so many roads, highways, bridges, airports, etc. named after Kennedy because in Democratic-controlled venues that is how it works. Ronald Reagan, a Republican, has very little political support in New Jersey; hence the big stink about Route 15. There is a Clinton, New Jersey, but it has an appropriate Red-Light District with numerous women named Monica, Paula, and Gennifer working nights as first class employees.

Milly, you must be the most immature person I have ever spoken to. I've been to Cuba 3 times actually. You really think that we should have blown Russia up? What kind of moron are you?
