Drinking this magnificent Michigan brew right now. A delicious APA from Bell’s the Smitten Golden Rye is a fantastic pale ale that even a non pale ale fan would enjoy. You got a lot of floaters in this beer because, hey, if God wanted us to drink filtered beer he wouldn’t have given us livers, right?
I was going to write this big fucking rant about something important but I drank a lot this evening because I’m an alcoholic and I don’t think it will be coherent. I’m pretty proud that this message is as good as it is. If anyone wants to talk to me about anything drunkenly I am open for business though. I will especially talk about beer in all its parts. Brewing, bottling and drinking.
Stop agreeing Reagan was a saint, especially since his only two miracles were turning water into polluted water and walking on the poor. — Bill Maher (via dontbeasmartass)

Republicans Refuse to Investigate the Illegal Activities of the Kochs and John Boehner -
It is common knowledge that Republicans operate under a double standard, but to allow men like the Koch brothers, Karl Rove, Willard Romney, and Speaker of the House John Boehner to escape even an investigation is beyond hypocrisy, it is criminal and looking the other way makes Issa and his Republican cheering section criminals for not doing their jobs as advocates for the American people. The idea of never investigating, charging, and prosecuting Republicans or their campaign donors is a pox on this nation going back to the Bush administration lying to take the nation into a war, and not prosecuting bankers and Wall Street executives for deliberately crashing the economy and it persists today in ignoring clear cases of illegal activity by conservatives and their oil industry masters. Republicans, and primarily Darrell Issa, have wasted months on a Benghazi non-scandal and they will waste more time and taxpayer dollars pursing a non-existent IRS scandal when if they really want convictions, they can look into Willard Romney, John Boehner, Koch oil associate ERM, and conservative groups’ illegal activities, but as often is the case, there is honor among criminals and there is no way the criminals in the Republican Party will investigate the other criminals in the Republican Party.
