There is nothing as seriously addictive as alcohol.
After watching two of the closest people to me drink themselves to death, one might think I would find drinking jokes to be offensive. At least if I was a liberal, politically correct, over-sensitized, whiny baby, perhaps. I don’t however. Humor has truths that can make us uncomfortable, but speak a different language.
I cannot get over the overblown, yet seriously pathetic apology for using the cultural name of [methyl (1R,2R,3S,5S)-3- (benzoyloxy)-8-methyl-8-azabicyclo[3.2.1] octane-2-carboxylate], or “Crack” for a french fry. It boggles the mind that anyone would so care about such a mild reference to something that is addictive, yet still, with any sense of propriety can still run an establishment that caters directly to those who suffer from the worst form of addiction, namely alcoholism.
This video is as priceless as it is pathetic and revealing of the cowardly culture we are backing ourselves into.
All is not lost however. Visit the video page itself, and enjoy the commentary while it lasts. If the snowflake who made the video is consistent, he will run from this video even faster than he did the ‘insensitive’ name for a deep fried potato.
Skubick asks what he’ll do with the GOP legislature’s attempt at reigning in the oncoming freight train of bureaucratic nightmares. He says “just wait.” From Fox2:
“In the new year Democrat Jocelyn Benson will be the new Secretary of State, Democrat Dana Nessel will be attorney general. Democrats have cried foul and want the governor to veto those bills.
The governor steadfastly refused to say what he will do even though he was pressed to do so.
“I will carefully evaluate and make a decision in the best interest for the people of Michigan,” Snyder said.
Tim Skubick: “Is it fair to say you would not have introduced this legislation if given the choice?”
“Tim. I’m not to get into all that speculation because people will try to read into what that means I’m going to do,” Snyder said.
The governor confesses he has personal feelings on this alleged power grab but he would not budge on that either.
“I have personal feelings on many issues but as governor I keep those feelings to myself,” Snyder said. “Because I am responsible to not act on my personal feelings but to represent the people of Michigan.”
Several years ago, the Lansing center folks booted a bunch of open carry guys from the Republican convention which was awkward, because well ..Republicans are supposed to be pro second amendment, right? No more, unless the MI GOP SPECIFICALLY issues a no firearms rule for its conventions, right?
The law still provides protections however, and the municipalities run by even the shadiest left wing whack jobs cannot even prevent firearms from being carried into council meeting environments. That is, unless they are held in a bar or (now) a school.
But in January, priorities change. The Democrats were able to elect the slate they have been pushing for 8-12 years, and what might have once been a state that respected law and order, will now revert to governance by emotion and fear mongering.
A buck and a quarter a year is the estimated loss consumers ultimately bear because of the the bottle law.
Scales gets a H/T on the video – And he may agree with a repeal of the law, and I can understand a number of the reasons. I suspect the actual cost is in fact MUCH higher because of welfare fraud, as well as compliance which requires automation, added employment, and often extra facilities.
However, in my life, I have watched a change in the road side debris that happened IMMEDIATELY following the passage of the law in the beginning. I was delivering the Lansing State Journal, the Free Press as a paperboy in the late 70s and spent much time biking the side roads and streets. When the law was passed, no more were bottles tossed, and those which were found a home in the bags which once carried newsprint door to door. This resulted in less trash overall, and the areas I was in began to simply look a little nicer.
Thursday November 29 debate on Pros/Cons of the absurd NPV manipulation scheme.
Sadly, there are Republicans in our legislature stupid enough who need more convincing about the perils of a national popular vote.
I’ve said my piece time and again, and apparently its not enough to overcome the Hawaii bribery schemes moving our ‘conservative’ mushheads back on track. Norm Hughes has challenged NPV Shill and fifth columnist Saul Anuzis to a debate on the merits (or lack thereof) of the NPV. The debate will happen November 29th at the Pontiac Country club, and the doors open at 6:30PM.
Some great works pop into the mailbox from time to time.
Something I personally try to do DAILY, is give thanks to my Maker and Provider. It costs nothing, it takes no time out of my day, and I can honestly feel the power it gives back for exercising a little humility in the presence of God’s works.
grateful people experience higher levels of positive emotions such as joy, enthusiasm, love, happiness and optimism, and that the practice of gratitude as a discipline protects a person from the destructive impulses of envy, resentment, greed and bitterness.
One would think this would make gratitude easy for us. Who doesn’t want to be happier and more successful? Alas, gratitude, for all its merit, is not something easily embraced, evidence suggests.
The most obvious example, of course, is the presence of the “victimhood culture,” which has turned grievance into a fad. There is indeed something odd and troubling about an ideology that stokes the embers of our resentment, particularly in a time and place enjoying unprecedented wealth and opportunity.
No victimhood message here. Only full blown gratitude.
Click on the link and read the rest, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I have solutions for any of these school issues. If anyone in the game really wants to fix it once and for all, feel free to reach out. It would take a little courage, but the repair would last forever.
Another chapter in the quest to rewrite history that progressives cannot accept.
When Gov. Snyder and Michigan Republicans bailed out the Detroit Public School System and City of Detroit a few years earlier, many posters on this site (myself included), warned everyone that it wouldn’t take long for inept & corrupt former political structure to reassert itself when the time presented itself.
