beer overlords

  •  Trump signs steel and aluminum tariff

     Once again the Tyrant-elect of the USA has decided, in his infinite lack of wisdom, to hurt the working man.  Tariffs on steel and aluminum will increase prices for everything made from those metals.  Yes, this means beer cans!  It will likely add thousands to the production costs for every beer producer, big and small across the land.

    This action clearly shows that Trump is not working for our Beer Overlords, but against them, and also that we'd be better off if he knuckled under and did as he was told, like every president before him.  The Beer Overlords control most of our lives and they do it well.  In mostly benevolent fashion.  Clearly, most of us prefer to live life partly under their influence than wholly at war with them.  Otherwise, we wouldn't drink, would we?

    Even in Montana, the small beer producers are concerned about the impact this will have on their bottom line.

  • In Lincoln Nebraska, someone has realized that beer does not always mix well with throwing axes.
    The city council has decided that people should not have any more than 2 drinks prior to throwing axes in a bar.
    After they have finished throwing axes, they can drink as usual.
    Seems like a common sense idea, but viewed through the lens of your money-grubbing Beer Overlords this is a serious breach of our basic freedoms.
    How can getting drunk and throwing axes be anything other than the constitutionally protected pursuit of happiness? A clear overreach by the wussified nanny-state local politicians who will next require you to wash your hands before handling food.
    What's next? Will they pass an ordinance requiring people to stop using their firearms when drinking excessively? It's a slippery slope that starts at sober axe throwing and slides all the way to prohibition, like a drunken camel on a glacier.
    Not a pretty sight.
