Right To Work in Indiana

June 2, 2012
Somehow a forum was organized to discuss the recent passing of the Right To Work bill (or whatever) in Indiana.  Much like the Clean Air Act and Healthy Forest Act, one would think that giving people the right to work is a good thing, but alas, these names are nothing but treacherous lies meant to deceive the hearts of the disinterested masses.   As explained by these guys....     wish i brought a tripod

Grog baby, just because

I made this video for my wife, but since my two videos from the Right To Work forum two weeks ago are going to take six hours to upload i will just throw this at you.


You're welcome!

Grog @ Outback Steakhouse



For my wife's birthday I let her take me to her favorite restaurant, Outback Steakhouse, home of authentic Australian cuisine like their famous Victoria Filet, which is a filet cooked in a special fashion that is very popular in the Australian state of Victoria, where they are famous for their filets.

I have never been to Australia and I know very little about it.  I think it was originally "discovered" by a Dutchman during Hollands golden age (Mid 16th century to late 17th century (yeah, the Dutch had a golden age)) and it was pretty much left alone by the Europeans until the early 19th century.

The English had acquired Australia sometime in the 18th century but it was not until their loss of the 13 North American colonies that the English really started to pay attention and develop Australia (also, as we all know, the island was being used as a penal colony).

Well that is my 2nd grade history lesson on Australia, the stuff everyone knows.  But did you know that there were humans inhabiting Australia before the white man came?  These peoples were called aborigines, or at least that is what the white man calls them, aborigines is just a word that denotes people as "original inhabitants" of a certain geographic area.  I am sure these aborigines have real names, but white cares not to know them ;(.

The Australian Country Fried Mushrooms are my favoritetest country fried mushrooms!!!!     Jump it

Occupy The Arts

A few weeks the sleeping giant that is Occupy South Bend (or as i like to call them, The OccuPals) awoke from their deep winter sleep with an event called "Occupy The Arts".  I did not really catch much of the art part, but I did get a chance to chat with various OccuPals and would-be OccuPals.  Many in our great country would say that Occupy is dead and good riddance, so it gives me great pleasure to show you just how wrong (and stinky) you are!  Because here they are and they are not going anywhere until all their demands are met (a bus to take them to the airport where a plane will be waiting to take them to Slovenia and 500,000USD)!!!    

At least I think those were their demands, but I could be mistaking those demands with this other group I sometimes cover....      oh well.... YOU decide!     Video after the jump!

groggy news

Please excuse my unexplained two week absence, but a friend of mine was having a major emergeny and I had to travel to Arkansas to help her out.   Unfortuntly things did not work out so well since she passed away.  The good news, though, is that now I am free to return to the grog (the website that is, my entire existence is nothing but grog).
