The most-anticipated beer of the Obama Administration is set to take place on Thursday at 6 p.m., a White House official told the Herald.
On Friday, President Obama announced the peace draft to be shared with Cambridge police Sgt. James Crowley and Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. to discuss the scholar’s controversial arrest on July 16.
Hey, what problems can't be resolved over a beer...unless you're in a Tennessee bar and the guy you are trying to reconcile with is carrying a concealed .45.
So, what's on the menu?
The beer selection for Thursday’s meeting is not known. Crowley prefers Blue Moon beer. Gates likes Beck’s and Red Stripe. The president drinks Budweiser.
The most powerful man in the world likes to drink...wait for it...Budweiser!?!
Well, at least he didn't say Pabst. The dude could have any beer he wants and he's going with the classic Amerikan swill. Damn, if I was president I'd turn the Lincoln Bedroom into a tap room featuring the finest West Coast IPAs, Belgian ales and German Oktoberfest brew imaginable.
I'm not the only one who thinks Obama should be more liberal and adventurous in the beer department. Here's a completely unscientific poll by NPR listeners. The verdict is near unanimous.
The president could always use this opportunity to solve both America' racial tensions and the standoff with North Korea by selecting Pyongyang's latest brew. There's nothing wrong with stress relief...
The ability of the corporate state to pacify the country by extending credit
and providing cheap manufactured goods to the masses is
gone. The pernicious idea that democracy lies in the choice between competing
brands and the freedom to accumulate vast sums of
personal wealth at the expense of others has collapsed. The conflation of freedom
with the free market has been exposed as a sham.
Oh, thank God, it's nonpartisan. It doesn't matter your background,
your demographics, your race, your political affiliation—it's such a
uniting, healthy, fun, awesome activity. It cracks me up going to some
running event and seeing some dude who campaigned so hard against me,
or a lady who's been blogging some mean comments about me. But we're
all there together and we're smiling and we're having a good time
because we're going to do something healthy and active. We need more of
that. That's what sports are able to do. It's a wonderful kind of
diversion from the divisiveness that is politics or that is life. And
my parents, they've got so many friends from so many different
political bents because of all their years participating in races and
organizing races. I was lucky enough to have been brought up in that
atmosphere where I see the value in that.

You could meet Sally, my genetically similar unit. She's genetically similar to you, but not so much, so you will only like her a little, or you will have ambivalent feelings toward her.
