Wine, Scotch, Rum, Tequila, Vodka, and the like

TIL that spiced rums date only to 1984, when Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum was introduced by Diaego. This is why no classic cocktails (and hardly any well-known cocktails, period) call for spiced rums. They didn't exist before 1984.

I’m pro gun to a degree too which makes it all the more crazy-making. But conservatives have figured out how to game the system by blocking everything progressive that isn’t explicitly called out by the constitution; be it around Gun rights or abortion I don't agree with any of your progressive gun...

I understand that most voters are morons that don't understand how things work. Perhaps I'm one as well, but beyond nationalizing the oil industry, what could actually be done in the legislature or white house to bring gas prices and/or grocery prices down? I genuinely have zero idea what tangible ...

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/house-gas-price-gouging-bill/ The House vote was 217-207: no Republican supported the bill, suggesting it's likely headed for failure in the Senate. Good.

E15 use may result in a slight decrease in fuel economy. Ethanol has a higher "octane" level than regular gasoline, so it's used in gas both as an octane booster / antiknock agent and as a political sop to the large corn agribusiness lobby, which lobbies the heck out of Congress to have more ethanol...

I think the new standard would absolutely have an impact on the handgun roster. Certainly, there is no significant founding-era history of the government picking and choosing what brands or specific models of guns that people could buy. Neither, I think, could the handgun roster be justified as proh...

Why would a federal district judge's stance on abortion matter now? The federal judiciary just got out of the abortion-regulating business. Now, what might matter is what state judges think of abortion, especially state high-court judges. In fact, I would imagine that we just entered an era of voter...

I am calling the "I like guns argument" to not be a valid argument for not imposing gun regulations. In the same way that "I like booze' is not a valid argument to limit restrictions on the product.

Yes, because the answer when the laws are ineffective in stopping the undesired outcomes, is to eliminate all the laws. Actually, we should fix the laws because they are feckless and there are too many guns. Yes, more laws will totally work. Just like all of the thousands of anti-drug drug laws pas...
