Bureaucrats Try Limiting Us to
Just One Drink a Day—After
Everything They’ve Put Us Through?

They shut down our jobs, locked us in our houses, drove us out of our churches, destroyed our favorite restaurants, crushed our favorite live music venues, delayed Wonder Woman 1984 (again), won’t let us trick-or-treat — and now some government bureaucrats are trying to limit men to just one drink a day? Are you kidding me? Insert slightly maniacal, vaguely menacing chuckle. You say you want a revolution? That’s how you get a revolution. Unsatisfied with regulating all those other things that once made up a normal life, our betters in Washington are shifting their all-knowing minds to your and my little daily life choices.

The left is unhinged. They became intoxicated (pun intended) with power during the lockdowns and can't let go. Liberal my eye. They are Stalinists.

I've probably only had 13 drinks so far this year in total. So, at one drink per day with 303 days elapsed thus far, I'm already behind by 290 drinks. There's just no way I'm going to be able to drink all 290 in the next 63 days. However, I am willing to share my excess drinks with my fellow L-Dotters. We've got a lot of work to do, my friends.

In an effort to appear cooperative, the Jews in Germany agreed to give up their guns and wear the yellow star. By the time they knew they were in trouble, they were unable to save themselves. Government with unlimited power can never be trusted!!!

#4.. pretty sure I have assisted you in achieving the number.. My liberal brother in law - voting Biden- is part owner of an alcohol distribution company... I am sure even this nonsense won’t soak into the brain.. until the company goes out of business.. Then, it will be someone else’s policy that caused the problem. We have a failure to grow up, own you, and be adults.

If you are a bureaucrat responsible for devising new rules for us "deplorables," then you must come up with new rules if you are to get a raise or to be promoted. "I'm a Democrat, and I know what's best for you."

Before long we'll have to fill out a form and wait 5 days for a beer. Question 3 ... Are you a fugitive from justice ?? Answer ... Yes and I'll be back in 5 days for my beer. One a day ? A yard glass full of Jack Daniels ought to cover it.

Even the Soviet Politburo knew better than to allow vodka to be rationed. Let people have their booze during the hard times, or the bureaucracy may wind up with a very unpleasant problem. Bryan is a very good writer, I enjoy his columns.

Whether To Throw Out More
Than 100,000 Drive-Thru Votes

Posted by StormCnter 10/31/2020 9:13:46 AM Post Reply
A lawsuit filed by a Republican legislator in Texas and three other members of the GOP is asking the court to invalidate more than 117,000 drive-thru votes that have been cast in Harris County, a challenge the Supreme Court of Texas has asked the county to file a response to, indicating that at least one justice on the court seems to be seriously considering the challenge. The plaintiffs argue that Harris County’s expansion of drive-thru voting sites amounts to an illegal expansion of curbside voting. The court rejected two similar GOP efforts last week aimed at shutting down drive-thru voting, but this new effort asks that memory cards be pulled
Health Care Is Not a Right 10 replies

Conventional wisdom holds that the progressive dream of Medicare for All died—or at least was deferred—when Joe Biden secured the Democratic presidential nomination. Many supposed the former vice president would be more moderate on health care than the president under whom he served. But recently Biden has started sounding a lot more like Barack Obama or even Senator Bernie Sanders. In early July, six unity task forces convened jointly by Biden and Sanders released their policy recommendations for a putative Biden Administration. If implemented, they’d represent the most left-wing governing program in U.S. history. The healthcare task force stopped short of endorsing Medicare for All.
San Francisco, Homeless Encampment 14 replies

San Francisco’s hotels and motels are slowly emptying of the homeless people that the city placed there during the Covid-19 pandemic. The city simply can’t afford the $260 per night, per person, price tag of housing approximately 2,000 people—just a portion of the estimated 8,000 people who live on the street. Where will they go? Elected officials have come up with a new plan: turn the whole city into a network of homeless encampments. In June, city officials and departments developed a list of 42 potential sites that could be equipped with spaces for tents and mobile bathrooms. The urban campers, most with addiction and mental health issues, would be provided

Roots of Antifa: This 'Idea'

As riots and looting consumed Philadelphia this week after a fatal police shooting, a radical left-wing group, the “Philly Socialists,” began monitoring police scanners and relaying information to help protesters evade arrest. At one point, the Philly Socialists tweeted out a clue as to their street allegiances: “Do humanity a favor and learn what antifa stands for.” The scene in Philadelphia was similar to scores of violent protests around the country since May, which have often featured a common and shadowy element – black-masked men and women who seemed as intent on breaking windows and confronting the police as chanting social justice slogans.

What will the U.S. Navy’s next large surface combatant look like? The USN has cycled through a wide variety of plans for its next generation large surface combatant, including both cruiser and destroyer projects. Thus far, three decades of thinking about replacing the Ticonderogas and the DDG-51 classes have resulted in the Zumwalts, a three ship class widely regarded as expensive curiosities, and a third flight of Arleigh Burke destroyers.

During my annual viewing of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation — which is, as always, coming up faster than expected — I feel it’s worth reminding myself that Chevy Chase isn’t a great guy and Randy Quaid, despite his convincing portrayal of an illegal-sewage-dumping moocher, is actually a commendable actor who has garnered Oscar and Golden Globe nominations and starred in weighty plays by the great Sam Shepard. Except now that I know about Lone Star Love, I may go back to equating Quaid with cousin Eddie.

ST. GEORGE, Utah — Twelve days of searching for a woman in one of America's most treacherous and beloved frontiers ended in a rescue. Holly Courtier, a 38-year-old California mom, was found Oct. 18 in Zion National Park visibly famished, pounds lighter and dehydrated. She had a concussion, kidney failure, and foot injuries due to the cold, according to her family. What was supposed to be a brief spiritual pilgrimage turned instead into a fight for her life. Upon her discovery, she left the park with her family and sought medical care. And then the online frenzy began.

Let me be very clear up front. My intention in bringing up historical parallels in the following article is not to gain election-year political points in name-calling. Instead, I want to focus our attention on some of the worst totalitarian atrocities in human history to suggest we are closer than we care to admit to a totalitarian disposition. For Black Lives Matter supporters whose goal is addressing substantial problems with excessive force by police, the means to that end shouldn’t be those used by two of the most notoriously brutal political movements of the Left—the French Revolutionaries of the Terror—and the Right—modern Germany’s National Socialists. History has something to teach us

Tesla has been able to dominate the conversation around both electric and autonomous vehicles, for good and bad reasons. In terms of its Autopilot driver assistance system, which is somewhat deceptively named, the general consensus is that Tesla is leading the auto industry in the technology. A new comprehensive evaluation begs to differ. On Wednesday, Consumer Reports released its findings from a wide-ranging test of 17 different vehicles with active driving assistance systems (ADAS). The result? Tesla Autopilot is “now a distant second” to Super Cruise from General Motors.

It was a machine built for war. Its entire life had only known the dusty roads of the Middle East. A beast on four wheels, it was responsible for the lives of its camouflaged human cargo packed inside. It did its job well, almost too well. It wasn't meant for a civilian life, but it was coming to America's streets anyway and would become the most awe-inspiring—and the most controversial—SUV ever made. Its ecological sins would ultimately lead to its demise, but a major automotive revolution would resurrect it as something else entirely. This is the story of the Hummer.

Specifically, he will shove LGBT ideology down the throats of religious Americans in the name of fighting “discrimination.” On Wednesday, the Democratic nominee told Philadelphia Gay News that President Donald Trump has given “hate” a “safe harbor” by protecting religious freedom and enabling what Biden condemned as “discrimination.” “Donald Trump and Mike Pence have given hate against LGBTQ+ individuals safe harbor and

And you thought the New York Times’s news division had problems. The paper’s opinion section on Friday published a collection of essays titled, “What have we lost?” Featuring all 15 New York Times opinion columnists, the collaboration asserts that its aim is to explain “what the past four years have cost America, and what’s at stake in this election.” However, rather than explore seriously and realistically the short- and long-term consequences of the Trump presidency, the project comes across more like a collective nervous breakdown, full of self-absorbed handwringing and wild-eyed proclamations about the future of the republic. “Persuasion,” argues New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof.

WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after “Congratulations” is almost always “Do you know what you want?” We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then. Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who—rather than what—is growing inside my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to?

Model, actress, and radical feminist Emily Ratajkowski announced her pregnancy in this month’s Vogue Magazine, writing an essay reflecting on the sex of her child. As is the case with many far-left causes and feminists, Ratajkowski signals her most progressive beliefs, only to find herself wrestling with the pesky reality that is biology. Like Tampax claiming men can have periods, or school districts ruling it fair for boys to compete in girls’ sports, leftist causes often come down to arguments over semantics rather than science. Ratajkowski finds herself in a similar trap, claiming to not really know her child’s sex until he is 18, and assuring readers

We previously discussed the effort at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to have the famous statue of Abraham Lincoln removed as racist. The student government has now voted unanimously in favor of a resolution that calls for the removal of the Abraham Lincoln statue on campus. The students declared that the president who signed the Emancipation Proclamation, advocated for the 13th Amendment, and led the war against the South and slavery was “not pro-Black” and a “remnant of White Supremacy.” That would likely have come as something of a surprise to John Wilkes Booth.

Central Texas — Supporters of President Donald Trump allegedly harassed a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris bus as it traveled through Central Texas on Friday, according to local Democratic activists. Videos and photos posted on social media show a long line of vehicles flying Trump flags trailing the Biden-Harris bus as it traveled from San Antonio to Austin on I-35. In some images, the bus appears to be boxed in by the vehicles. Some members of the Texas Democrats’ campaign say that a Biden-Harris staffer’s car was hit during the incident. As a result of the incident, campaign events in Austin and Pflugerville were canceled.
