Republicans in Tennessee have just declared to the entire state that they want to lose the next election. Jesus, leave it to the Stupid Party to make Joe Biden look smart. They are trying to pass a law that would make it illegal to serve cold or chilled beer. (Hat tip to wirecutter)

I have said it before, and it bears repeating- “Just because the Democrats are your enemy does not mean that the Republicans are your friend.”

This is why Trump is so popular- he isn’t like all of the other politicians. Was he perfect? No, but remember that he isn’t an expert on everything, because no one person can be an expert in everything. The largest complaint that I have heard about him was the banning of bump stocks. He isn’t, and never was, a gun guy. Not a part of gun culture at all. So he did what any outsider would do- he went to the people who he believed to be experts in gun rights. He consulted the NRA. Everyone in the country who isn’t part of the gun culture assumes that they are the progun experts. Those asshole Fudds over at the NRA told him that bump stocks were useless, and therefore throwaways in gun culture. Not knowing any better, he went with that.

The enemy here wasn’t Trump, it was the NRA.

To me, Trump’s biggest problem was taking people at their word. Being an outsider, he didn’t understand that members of the swamp and of the Uniparty only care about two things: money, and power. They use one to get the other interchangeably. Being a babe in the woods when it came to politics, he frequently made bad choices in adding people to his inner circle, and that naivety cost him possibly everything, including his life.

According to the politician its due to him being in a car accident with a drunk driver. Funny how things happen to them and they just MUST fix it. He has had the ability to make drunk driving a very bad choice with various legal means but what has he done? Just doing away with any DWI plea bargain is a big start.
But somehow cold beer is the problem,WTF??? Does this have some attachment to the southern religious right? They are just as bad as the commies for telling people how to live their lives.

But the bill seems to be dead on arrival, maybe some of them understand like the Soviets did. You DO NOT take away the alcohol, its the only thing keeping a lid on people who have had a fucking enough of the govts shit. You taker away our last fun and way to relax and we will say fuck it and bring on the revolution and hangings.

As an Australian I was shocked to read this story, ban the sale of cold beer??!! Many years ago when I visited your great country I was delighted to find that while getting petrol for my car I could also buy beer as well (although back in the 90’s I was not a fan of your big name beers). At home we can only buy beer, wine etc from a pub or a “bottle Shop” which open at 10am.

    Do they still brew ‘Sheafs Stout’ down under? For some reason known but to God, the Fort Lewis Class 6 got a pallet of that in back in the late 80s. As I recall it was actually better at room temp than refrigerated

      G’day Miles, they certainly do. Being a stout they taste better at room temp or slightly chilled, I was only enjoying one the other week.

To borrow a phrase we use about the cops, let’s just say “There’s no political situation so bad that a Republican can’t find a way to make it worse!”
