INDUSTRIAL HEMP CLEARS ONE HURDLE It passed out of the Senate Ag committee yesterday. Of course this doesn't mean anything unless the Feds get out of the way.
BARKEEP, THERE'S WATER IN MY BOOZE Maker's Mark is making it hard for bars to water down the product by watering down the product. I've not yet been able to develop a taste for bourbon, so this leaves me unaffected, but how will Maker's drinkers react?
SERIOUSLY, DOG OWNERS? SERIOUSLY? There are few things I hate worse than irresponsible dog owners who don't pick up after their dogs. And the Big Four bridge apparently had an influx of such owners on opening weekend. If you don't pick up your dog's poop you are an inconsiderate jerk. Period. Especially if it's in my yard.
CRAZY PEOPLE WITH NUKES North Korea is at it again, this time testing a nuclear weapon larger yet more compact than previous tests. This means they are likely more able to create a missile with a nuclear bomb attached. When do we begin to take this lunatic seriously? And how hard would it actually be to roll in into North Korea and just take over? China could do this in five minutes. But no one wants to deal with the utterly helpless North Korean population. Which is sad.
CAN YOU COMPLAIN IF YOU PUT IT ALL ONLINE? Raytheon has developed software that mines all the public online places you put your life and uses that info to not only track where you've been, but predict where you will go. Of course people will freak out about the invasion of privacy, but we've all been uploading our lives for years now, is it any wonder that companies/governments are simply trying to use what's available online? Marketers have been doing this for years.
HAPPILY PART OF THE ILLEGITIMATE MEDIA SINCE 1996 I'm guessing Joe Biden wasn't talking about me when he mentioned the "legitimate media". Because I'm sure as hell not gonna carry the water for this administration on gun control. Ever.
