J&B Whisky Goes Trans

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 12/20/2022 7:23:37 AM

Trust me, I don’t like to be the one to bring you this news. I am a wine enthusiast, and as a former server, I pride myself on knowing my way around a liquor cabinet or bar. And once in a while, I like to unwind with a nice drink. Personally, I enjoy a smoky, peaty, single malt scotch as my beverage of choice. Maybe with a rock or two, or neat. Either way, it can make for a satisfying nightcap. Of course, everyone has their favorite drink, and if you prefer something else, it is not my place to judge. And this is the 21st Century and no one

I’m a tequila guy myself, but I would be curious to see what happens to J&B market shares after this. We know what happened to Gillette and Disney.

I'm done with the trans stuff. They are trying to force acceptance to their mental issues. Not buying it, not interested and I'm as stubborn with my thoughts as I was with the covid shot. #1, I'm a tequila girl, try it with fresca and lime.

In my cabinet I have Woodford, Makers Mark, Crown Royal and Jack Single Barrel. Never had any J&B and now never will. There are many fine bourbons and whiskeys out there so why bother to buy one that wants your grandson to wear dresses. Just let kids be kids. This is sick.

The author and I are in agreement regarding scotch, although, I will never pollute good scotch with ice. That peaty smoky flavor isle of Islay single malt mighty fine. But no, some people are not trans. Some people think they are trans and some people think other people have become trans but nobody on planet earth has reengineered their chromosomes to become trans. No amount of surgery or mind control has yet to accomplish that. No doubt some level of outlier occurs in nature but that small nugget of truth does not equate to any ability to willfully to change between male and female in either direction.

I’m a recovering alcoholic of 35 years and I drank scotch back in my drinking days, but I never stooped so low as to drink J&B. I hope that the company goes bottom up.

Two fingers of a good straight boubon whiskey with a splash. I was a scotch drinker many moons ago, but strictly good bourbon now. Even in my getting started, money was tight days, I never drank J&B. Pinch was as cheap as I got. Enjoyed the article, though. I used to live by the ' let everyone do their own thing' and I'd do my thing, but I've had the 'do it my way' crappola up to here and like the author, I'm sick of it.

Around here the favored brands of single malt scotches are Lagavulin 16 year old or Laphroaig. Every once in a while I pour one ounce in a snifter and take forty-five minutes to savor it, enjoying every drop. Just a little is enough.

In reality (a place where some of us still stubbornly live), there is no such thing as a transsexual. It is, as the mentally ill among us like to say, a “construct”. There are male individuals who pretend to be female and vice versa. Some go so deeply into their delusions as to have themselves surgically mutilated. Whatever the physical results of their psychosis, they are and WILL remain, genetically male or female. That’s it and that’s all.

Oh gee, I guess I missed out on my grandpa, Doc encouraging me to put on eyeshadow and mascara in order that I may come out to the fam. /s On Friday nights, he'd hit the fridge a get a can of Lone Star beer that he bought at the brewery by the trunk load for dirt cheap. We'd go to the living room and open the doors to the magic screen and wait until the tubes heated up. We were thereby transported into the realm of his " Friday Night N-word Fights". I was not expected to make comment, but merely observe and take mental note of the elder's passing on of experience earned. So, imagine what this little sexually confused snowflake learned from grandpa/ma? J&B is the stuff they put in the "water bottles" at those fights between rounds and there's a darn good reason they keep spit bucket nearby.

On a daily basis I have to witness commercials that don't include me as a target of sales. That's fine let the target audience keep the products, which they don't use, company afloat. If I had a favorite alcohol, which I do, that goes trans or gay then let the gay, trans along with others support the brand but not me ever again. It's to the point where it's easier for me to name things I support (shorter list) than things I boycott and no longer purchase. I totally agree with the article, thanks.

Although I've seen J&B at the liquor store, I've never seen a single bottle at any cocktail party I've ever attended, going back to 1972, when I first became of legal age. My friends and parents' friends had better taste than that. I prefer wine to hard liquor, anyway, and used to write restaurant wine lists. The best wine I ever had was a 1983 Chateau Margaux. Words cannot explain what that wine tasted like. The finish (taste in my mouth) from the last swallow lasted ten minutes, all the way home from the tasting. Incredible. Unfortunately, the stuff is too expensive to drink anymore. It was nice to taste it back when.

New York — Sam Bankman-Fried will be extradited to the United States Wednesday night, Bahamas Attorney General Sen. Ryan Pinder confirmed. Bankman-Fried will be extradited after the Foreign Minister of the Bahamas signed a warrant of surrender allowing his extradition to the United States, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Bahamas confirmed in a statement. Earlier, lawyers for Bankman-Fried were negotiating with federal prosecutors in New York on a bail arrangement that would enable him to avoid detention, people familiar with the matter told CNN.

An unnamed official who interacts with Bankman-Fried on a daily basis at the Bahamian prison known as Fox Hill told The Washington Post that the disgraced FTX founder remarked Friday that he would agree to be extradited back to the US to "face the music" if his lawyers could not persuade a judge to grant him bail.

Sam Bankman-Fried was shuffled off to his new digs in the Bahamas, where it seems likely that he will be spending a great deal of time. That his “mortal coil” might be shuffled off as well is an open question in the era of Jeffrey Epstein. Who are the bigger fraudsters, though? A spoiled kid who bilked his investors for billions or a bureaucracy that prints and spends public money with reckless abandon? It would take an eternity for SBF to graduate to the level of these government and quasi-government scammers. At the time of his bankruptcy filing, FTX’s liabilities were in the neighborhood of ten to fifty billion dollars.

As Sam Bankman-Fried was taken away in handcuffs, some people who have been watching the implosion of FTX are wondering: Where's Caroline Ellison, his onetime girlfriend who ran his crypto hedge fund Alameda Research? So far, legal watchers say US prosecutors and regulators have been tight-lipped: The criminal indictment made no mention of Ellison, and the SEC's civil complaint targeted just Bankman-Fried. But in investigating what US Attorney Damian Williams called "one of the biggest financial frauds in American history," the government is almost certainly looking beyond Bankman-Fried, legal experts said. "It would not surprise me if Ellison has already spoken with prosecutors,"

Wannabe Speaker of the House Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has a narrowing path to achieve his goal, largely because the opposition to him is adamant that he not ascend to the speakership. At least seven members have indicated they will not vote for McCarthy under any circumstances. And that sets the stage for a once-in-a-century floor fight that is likely to leave the Republican majority in the House in disarray and the Democrats grinning from ear to ear. It’s even remotely possible that a Democrat could squeak into the speaker’s chair. It’s highly unlikely, but if the vote for speaker goes on long enough, a few moderate Republicans might say, “to hell

Fallen FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried will be released on a $250million bond, according to a deal struck today in a New York City courtroom.  The disgraced financier had recently claimed to have just $100,000 to his name.  He was arrested in the Bahamas last week on a range of fraud and money laundering charges for what prosecutors described as one of the biggest financial crimes in American history.  They allege that he used his crypto-trading platform as a 'personal piggy bank', convincing investors to mark their billions with him only to funnel their assets into his own company. 
Senate passes $1.7 trillion spending bill

The Senate on Thursday approved a $1.7 trillion spending bill with help from more than a dozen Republican lawmakers, after a fight over immigration policy nearly derailed the legislation. In an 68-29 vote, the Senate passed a bill that provides $858 billion for defense, $787 billion for non-defense domestic programs and nearly $45 billion for military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. The more than 4,000-page bill funds the government for the rest of the fiscal year, and includes more than 7,200 earmarks totaling more than $15 billion. Senate passage sends the bill to the House, where Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to hold a vote as early as Thursday evening

Here’s one part of the nearly $2 trillion American Rescue Plan passed last year that few people apparently read. The bill included more than half a million dollars in grants for tech researchers to develop artificial intelligence algorithms capable of identifying and suppressing “microaggressions” in social media posts. Part of the money was quietly gifted to researchers at the University of Washington earlier this year and they expect to receive the rest of it in coming years as the development work proceeds. You may find yourself wondering how the federal government wound up handing out taxpayer money to develop ways to automatically censor the free speech of its citizens.
