I've had Little kings!


I once drove across the river to La Crosse once to get some Old Style

It was 10 times better than the 3.2 crap they sold in Iowa

In Iowa we envied Wis. for its beer

One of my favorite old school managers was John McNamara. One of my neighbors headed up the legal department of a local S&L and a title company used to sporadically give him tickets right behind the first base corner of the Indians dugout. We went one night when the Tribe was playing the Red Sox. Mike Torres was pitching for the Sox and had a 2-2 count on some stiff for the Indians, not Rick Manning because he was right handed, and totally fooled him on what everyone in the old stadium knew was strike three except for the home plate umpire. Torres just turned away in disgust but Johnny Mac went ballistic in the dugout and we had the best view of anyone not on the field.

A woman who’s obsessed with the 1950s has quit her job to become a housewife for her husband. With her collection of 50s dresses, antique brooches, elegant hats and dainty gloves, Jemima Collins, 28, has recreated the forgotten era. Jemima, who quit her job as a government worker, is married to 29-year-old engineer Jack. The couple live in Brisbane, Australia. Jemima is so obsessed with the 50s lifestyle that she’s taking time out from her criminology career to take pride in leading the true lifestyle of a 1950s housewife. Although she admits she attracts lots of inquisitive stares from people curious about her fashion sense, she doesn’t care what others think. She said: ‘I love being a housewife. People might say that I’m going against feminism but it’s entirely my choice.

Pin, Libtards do not accept a WOMAN having CHOICE, unless the choice is to be vulgar and kill her baby.

Libtards do like it when people CHOOSE to shoot heroin and shit on the sidewalk in San FranSHITsco.
You see, then the HUNDREDS of MILLIONS yep HUNDREDS of MILLIONS shoveled out to LIBTARD SOCIAL ACTIVIST GROUPS can be spent on counseling the SHITTTTERS not to SHIT on the sidewalk. Oh!! And to provide the DRUG ADDICTED SHITTERS, NEEDLES and STRAWS errrrrr SYRINGES to feed their SHITTY addictions.
HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, shoveled to LIBTARD DO-GOODER ORGS, with no review or expectation of RESULTS.


I'll be going to the sketchy AF homeless Jack in the Box before I ever darken your door again:

At Burger King on Thursday, a man and a woman approached the counter for two orders of BK Chicken Fries. The cashier handed the man a box, in the normal brown packaging, and charged him the standard $1.69. She handed the woman a pink box, labeled “Chick Fries” and asked her to pay $3.09 -- $1.40 more than her companion.

This scene played out again and again in select Burger King locations across the country, with customers’ reactions ranging from shock, to confusion, and predictably, to anger.

But it was all a stunt orchestrated by the chain, filmed and placed onto their YouTube channel, in an effort to bring awareness to what’s known as the Pink Tax. While it’s not prevalent in the fast food industry, products aimed at women are, in general, more expensive than those aimed at men.

back during so. ilnoy era we lived 90 minutes from my in-laws just across the Innyanna line in Vincennes.

two car seats in the back with two coolers on either floorboard filled with Little Kings. we could carry 2 cases in each cooler. it was a four doobie round trip over our usual 2 day stay.

between plantin and cuttin/shellin seasons we'd hit the in-laws every other week or so.

a simpler time and gentler open container laws.



A product that's often aimed at men is a gun and they vary widely in cost.

Women can do anything and Woman are utterly helpless simultaneously.


In 1989 Boris Yeltsin, at times just a Soviet parliament and High Council member, has visited United States of America with an unofficial visit. The program of the visit consisted of visiting different landmarks like a Lindon Johnes Space center in Texas etc, but Yeltsin also wanted to see how regular Americans live so he headed directly to the grocery store he saw on the street. The journalists that were with him on a trip were telling Yeltsin was pretty much shocked by the diversity in the store and was waving his hands all the time – like here on a photo. Inside you can see more photos of him in a store and also a short video which can help you understand why Yeltsin was surprised that much:

Anybody remember when ABC used to televise playoff baseball with Cosell (who probably understood baseball even less than football), Billy Martin, Earl and Jim Palmer. Weaver and Palmer would argue constantly about past games but I think they both really hated Martin and Cosell because they obviously shilled for the Yankees. It was the seventh game of the AL championship at Yankee Stadium against the Royals. The Yankees had beaten them the last couple of years, once featuring a boneheaded move by the White Rat to use starter Dennis Leonard as a closer which blew up in his face. Anyway it was a tied game in the top of the ninth with a runner on and Gossage came on against George Brett. Gossage threw a smoker that Brett timed perfectly and hit right off the screws. There was total silence in the broadcast booth until Palmer said in a way that you knew he was smirking "I think it landed in the third deck".

Chuck Schumer: 3D-Printed Guns Open Door to ‘Fully Semiautomatic Weapon’


Mongolia’s ever-growing “reverse gender gap” has resulted in many educated women complaining that there is a shortage of eligible men.

Caused by the efforts of local parents to prioritize investing in their daughters’ education over their sons, the phenomenon is almost uniquely Mongolian as it is the complete opposite of what is happening in many patriarchal countries.

The trend has been going on over the last few decades due to parents’ belief that women will take better care of them in their old age. Meanwhile, boys are kept at home so they can herd livestock.

If Mali is Germany's second Afghanistan what was the first?

Thousands of German soldiers are fighting a desperate losing battle together with French soldiers against Saudi funded Islamist radicals in Mali. There is a general media blackout on this war in the US due to the US government’s tight relationship with Saudi Arabia. But here in Europe we still get the news about the constant fighting, dying and heroic acts of our brave soldiers fighting Islamists in Africa.


The five main Islamists groups in Mali are Ansar Dine, Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa (Mujao), al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the Signed-in-Blood Battalion and the Islamic Movement for Azawad (IMA).

Ansar Dine is seen as a home-grown movement, led by renowned former Tuareg rebel leader Iyad Ag Ghaly.

Its objective is to impose Islamic law across Mali and its full name in Arabic is Harakat Ansar al-Dine, which translates as "movement of defenders of the faith".

In contrast, AQIM - the north African wing of al-Qaeda - has its roots in the bitter Algerian civil war of the early 1990s, but has since evolved to take on a more international Islamist agenda.

It emerged in early 2007, after the feared Algerian Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC) aligned itself with Osama Bin Laden's international network.

The group has since attracted members from Mauritania and Morocco, as well as from within Mali and its neighbours, such as Niger and Senegal.

There just are not enough badass Mongolian men who hunt with eagles if you ask me. Suburban Mongols hunt with falcons, which the modern Mongol woman simply won't have.

Thank goodness that Irish song Quid Fit ue' Ra' or whatever didn't include that blasted River Dancing. That has to be one of the strangest forms of self expression on the planet. Really should be called duck dancing because the upper body is preternaturally still while the lower body is paddling like hell.

At least the Africans dance after killing a lion or something.

My poor nieces has been subject to that river dancing for years. I fault their parents. No wonder the Irish drink.


Maybe after GERMANY and FRANCE "PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE to NATO", NATO can help the brave soldier of GERMANY and FRANCE to eradicate the MUSLIM TERRORISTS.

I rarely click on anything referring to polls, but this probably doesn't bode well for November.


A majority of Republicans say that their views on major issues facing America most closely align with President Trump, according to a new poll released by Rassmusen on Friday.

64 percent of likely Republican voters said that the president’s views are closest to their own, the poll said. In comparison, only 20 percent of those surveyed stated that the average GOP congressman’s views aligned most with their ideas.

Time for Hatch to retire. He absolutely doesn't understand the Left. Also, his "good judgement" had him palling around with Ted Kennedy.

From chasing officials out of restaurants and screaming in Secretary Chao’s face to the President’s divisive tweets and attacks on the media, our culture war has reached a tipping point. It’s time to take a step back.

Trump has said recently that the Russians were going to hack the midterms in favor of the Democrats because he was so tough on the Russians.

I would not be surprised if they’re thinking about some mischief in some strong blue races on behalf of Democrats to support this narrative, and I would not be surprised if Trump knows it. They could discredit some Dems who would have won anyway, push back on the 2016 narrative, and maximize GOP paranoia and aggrievement.

And quite frankly I could see a good part of the pundit class using such incidents to push a stupid narrative that victorious Dems need to ease up on the GOP and act like centrists in the crazy idea that the GOP will be centrists too and join to fight the Russian hackers. And when the extremists further their hold on the GOP, it will be the fault of Democrats for not being conciliatory enough.

matt, decades ago, I made an Atlantic crossing to Germany. On board were Irish females who spent 9+ days on a side deck dancing to fiddle music. I had never seen such expressionless dancing . Very odd experience. They all disembarked in Cobh.

Was wolfe charged with lying, not leaking, because his bosses authroized the leaks? I think so.

Been out of pocket and just seeing your post. Little Kings was Schoenling Beer. They had 5 breweries in Cincy when I was there: Hudephl, Burger, Schoenling, Wiedaman, and Carling. You got your kegs and bottled beer at “Pony’s “ and your growlers or5 gallon jugs at local taverns. Back then if you were 18 you could drink 3.2 beer. 21 for 6.0 beer.

Miss Marple


Pretty good article about Folsom Prison Blues.


Interesting post on Wolfe, Clarice.

It's a good question why they didn't charge him with leaking when they had him dead to rights on that.


They told Ali that they only got her metadata, not her actual texts, because of course she represents a great American newspaper.

Did they ever say they had Wolfe's texts? I don't think so. The only quotes in the indictment all came from when he was using the "Signal" app, if I remember right. That was what he used to tell her how proud he was of her ability to make a career by, well, you know what he was actually proud of.

They may not have the actual texts.

Cobh or Cork, has some of the finest restaurants in all of Ireland, outside of Kinsale, which is the gourmet capital of Eire.

However, in my opinion, the finest oysters are in Galway City, and the finest Irish salmon in Ballina, County Mayo.

If you are a 3rd or 4th or 5th Irish-American, most likely your ancestors left for America from Cobh!


From the indictment:

Count #1 was his saying he didn't have contact with Reporters #1, #3 and #4. [Pretty dumb to lie if they're asking you about those specific people.]

Count #2 was his saying he didn't disclose privileged information to Reporter #2 (the babe).

Count #3 was his saying he didn't disclose privileged information to Reporter #3.


Jim Eagle

Interesting to me that this is the year of the leaker.

It is in Rumsfeld's diction, a "known-known", that everyone leaks in DC. Information is capital in DC, as money is capital in NY. Those who have the highest level of information are treated like successful hedge fund guys on Wall St.

Now, this may be sort of unique that they are actually indicting leakers but they could go back years, and indict every Congressman, Senator, and staffers for the same thing. Maybe not TSC/Compartmentalized stuff but close enough for government work.

You can't run a policy shop, a newspaper, a TV network, a niche newsletter, or even a lobbying shop without leakers.

Good Morning! Missed the eclipse but last night Sydney had a festival called Christmas in July so everyone in town was dressed up in Santa Clause caps and the bar scene was booming.

930 AM here so turning on the TV I see that yesterday there was a big Election, sort of a mini Midterm, and the Labor Party cleaned up. If I understand correctly they are the opposition to the more Conservative Party currently in power, headed by Malcolm Turnbull .

The Sunday Talk shows on ABC (Australia Broadcasting Corp) have the talking heads doing Mea Culpa's, specifically because they say their polling and predictions were wrong. Labor was not supposed to do so well. They are playing clips of Labor politicians making big speeches about how they will oust Turnbull and the Conservatives in the next National Election.

The Beer last night was excellent, JiB. We started with a couple pints of Fat Yak at the Orient Hotel (1844). Then hit the Rooftop Bar of the Glenmore for a gorgeous view of the nighttime Opera house and another Fat Yak. Next we did the Lord Nelson (1844) for 3 rounds of Three Sheet's To the Wind, an excellent IPA. Then off to The Hero Of Waterloo (1843) for some local brew I never could get the name of, but it was killer and the bar is exactly the way a Bar ought'a be. Stopped for another 2 pints of the Fat Yak at the Orient on our way back to the Hotel, and suddenly it's 10 AM and time for me to get out of bed and find some strong Coffee. Big fun!

I remember telling @realDonaldTrump in a private phone talk in 2017 to keep trying to improve the relationship between US & Russia despite the criticism and not to forget we might’ve lost WWII w/o Russia as an ally. Glad to see him reaching out to them from a position of strength.

Don't think the law will support it but it would be interesting to see if the FCC could regulate online chat forums like Facebook and Twitter as "public utilities" since they like electric cables who transmit power, they transmit opinion. I know, its unrealistic, and free speech etc. but to watch the outrage, and rush to the courts would be fun.
