Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Join me (once again… and again… and again…) in raising a shot glass full of Tequila paired with a fine, German Crafted, Mexican Cerveza celebrating just one of a long list of French military defeats.
Since turning French military catastrophe into holidays would leave us with little time to actually work, we in the U.S. and Mexico have decided that the 5th of May will be it.

Viva Cinco de Mayo!

It was a turning point for the Mexican army (under Seguin) when they defeated the French at Puebla… Blah, blah, blah, Whatever…

While I certainly give credit to the Mexican army for defeating the French… so has everyone else.  In other words it’s a huge, not so exclusive, club with an  ever-expanding membership… kind of like Costco.  As far as I’m concerned, I’ll toast Mexico as well as all those throughout history who have kept the French contained and focused on making cheese, creating recipes for animals humans would otherwise not eat and various delightfully fluffy egg dishes.

Salud!


My 2016 New Years Resolution

After careful consideration… after lengthy deliberative thought…

In an effort to make everyone better,

I’ve decided in 2016 I’m going to Drink More.

Cheers!


House Republicans Inexplicably Throw President Obama a Lifeline.

Today the Establishment House Republicans passed a two page Bill intended to keep President Obama’s demand to “allow” Insurance Companies to continue offering plans to those that have them even when they do not meet the New Requirements of Obama Care Constitutional.  This effort is too clever by half as Insurance Companies must get approval from the States Insurance Commissions… then get the plans and plan holders re-instated… and then they will only be good for an additional year, only to become illegal again.  It’s stupid.  But still illustrates something.

In other words, The Republicans are trying to assist the President in remaining within the intended, written, carefully crafted confines of the U.S. Constitution.

The President has vowed to Veto this Bill should Harry Reid allow it through the Democrat Controlled Senate.

Why?

Only two reasonable explanations can exist.

Either President Obama has assumed dictatorial control of the United States and invalidated the U.S. Constitution… in his own mind.

Or, The President has no intention of “allowing” you to keep your insurance and is yet again Lying, Misleading or Prevaricating in order to by more time.  This additional time would be used to paint the Insurance Companies as being at fault because they will not be able to do what the President is magically demanding they do… because of his own law.

I’m sure the President would not want to see the entire Health Insurance System Implode, leaving you with no choice but to secure Expensive Insurance with Coverage you do not need or pay Draconian Fines enforced by the friendly folks at the IRS.  When I say coverage you do not need, the odds are you will never require a Pap Smear and Prostate Exam.  Unless… never mind.

I’m also sure the President could not possibly consider himself above the Constitution of the United States.  That means he would have to think the laws do not apply to him or his Administration… or for that matter His Party.  All of that would be grounds for Impeachment, and that would be ridiculous.

So he is a Space Alien.

Mystery Solved.

Could be all three…  I’ll have to spend some time drinking about that.


1000 Clowns

1000 clowns are going to protest at the NATO summit in Chicago.

No, this is not referring to the NATO representatives…
No, this is not referring to Occupy protesters…
No, this is not referring to the NEA or SEIU or UAW…

No, the entire House of Representatives, Senate and the President will not be marching…  while genuinely accurate there is not enough of them.

And NO, the U.N. is not making a special appearance…

These are reported to be the traditional type of “funny” clowns, not the “unfunny” kind mentioned above.
All my life I thought 1000 Clowns appearing in one place at one time was a biblical sign of the Apocalypse.  A friend of mine who is more informed on such Old Testament issues told me I was wrong…
I’m not convinced.
So here we go folks… drink up and smoke’em if you’ve got ’em.

The End Times are here.

I’m headed for the liquor store.
