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.

    Donald Trump, famous for not drinking alcohol (among other things), has claimed that the Republicans are now the "beer and bluejeans party." We find it interesting that there are no photos of him drinking beer or wearing bluejeans. Clearly he doesn't include himself or anyone else around him in that category. However, by encouraging his followers (many of whom do wear bluejeans) to drink beer, he may be trying to curry favor with the Beer Overlords.
    We understand that being impeached can drive a man to drink but we also understand that the Beer Industrial Complex can exert a powerful influence over voters. Especially voters who use their product.
    Clearly, the orange topped wunderkind is desperately seeking votes from people he can easily relate to as only a man of his "caliber" could (as a lying, racist, egomaniacal, small-handed, Russian operative). We're not in favor of that. We're in favor of a true beer drinking, brilliant, polite, dignified politician who will support the rights of all men (and women) to drink their beer as they wish, when they wish, wearing what they wish (if anything).

  • 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.
