We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
At least part of the point is that the Clintons are no longer politically useful to the left (that is, influence peddlers whose stock has run out and, moreover, whose political risk has not), and thus have to be jettisoned. Your mileage may vary.
The Hildebeast's sell-by date was 2016. She is not radical enough for today's Demonrat party. Bill hasn't been a draw for over a decade because his administration was much less radical than her's was going to be and #metoo finished him off.
That they planned this speaking tour just shows how out of touch they are and how averaricious.
France In Chaos; Macron Mulling State Of Emergency Amid "Yellow Vest" Protests; "All Options" Considered
The French person on the street doesn't want to (with vigor) be a mark in the global warming climate change grift - who'd a thunk it? Perhaps the rioters can be calmed via a gentle reminder that, "Government is simply the name we give to the things we choose to do together." Yeah, that ought to chill them out.
Scotch is always about the story, not the beverage. I doubt most people would drink it at all without the gushing PR about water and cask and the other blather that goes with it. The Scots are masters of setting up new distilleries and making them sound like they've been around since Hadrian was running things.
Hollywood- Older men who can always prey on younger women. Other men envy them.
Getting older- Didn't even read it, what does a 47-year-old know about the subject?
Doud is 17 years late to self-awareness. The Clintons have always been crooks and con artists.
I hadn't read a column of hers probably since the Clinton administration. She occasionally skewered them (most often not) and it was mildly entertaining to read the friendly fire. I thought I might have the same feeling when this column came out. I couldn't get past the first half of it.
Neat is great for the first taste, but single malts can definitely benefit from a wee bit o' H2O. Instead of gettin' all splashy, try this:
A decent glass of water (Brita, at least), then pinky-dip and drop-by-drop release the hounds. Too much water (i.e., a splash) will ruin your 15-year-old Macallan. Hell, it'll ruin your 12-year-old GlenDronach.
How do I know this works? I was hanging out with a couple of Serbian dudes named Strahinja in Germany (OK, one is my stepson) who had never tasted a single malt. The local supermarket had a strange and wonderful selection, from which I chose The Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve. Fascinating story about how that's produced. Google is your friend (bwahaha); here's your teaser: "...there is always a bit of REALLY old Whisky in that final cask..."
Anyway, suffice to say they were not down with the woody experience, but at least they had the palates to understand that. Plum brandy (Šljivovica rakija) was more up their alley. I was a little bummed, as I was sure they'd like it. Then I remembered the drop-by-drop method. I showed them. They tried it. Their eyes lit up, and a few hours later that bottle was empty.
If you're going to spend north of $100 on Scotch, treat it kindly. If you like the sherry cask variety, definitely check out The Dalmore (12 or 15, the latter can be had for under $100, and is the bee's knees). Gives The Macallans a run for their money.
