Fall Cocktails

07 October 2014 - 11:00 AM

Fall is a great time of year.  Football and the leaves things and oh, pumpkin beer.  Although this year, Ive tried about 10 or so and only one pumpkin beer is doing anything for me.  Thats not what this is about but I'll give you the one anyway, it's Southern Tier's Pumking, nice 8%+ abv and drinks easy.



I am more of a liquor guy myself, and I like to make nice drinks.  Anybody have any fall recommendations?  I was given a 200mL of corn moonshine from the Kings Co Distillery and was looking up some cocktail recipes.  Ive only have drunken shine straight or mixed with honey or flavored schnapps, but checking out this cocktail looks intriguing - Bootleggers Pumpkin Pie.   Anybody have any fall cocktails they would like to share?




SCP... on a bye week?

Where is our Chicago dumpage?  Or does the huddle not deserve after all the whining?  I could accept that excuse if given.

15 drives, 11 scores

That's our current defense. Although that 12 men penalty kept that drive alive on a 3 and out

UN Calls out USA Racism

03 September 2014 - 01:44 PM

Wake up call, kinda weird to see us the subject of the UN.





Yet, despite the clear signs of turmoil within our own home, this country continues to operate as if it is morally superior to the rest of the world.

Other countries across the globe have pointed out America’s hypocrisy, but thanks the United Nations, there is a more thorough and fact-based assessment of it. Recently, the United Nations’ Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination concluded its 85th Session, and among their seven state reports, one focused on the United States.

Among the aforementioned problems, the report also criticized the United States for racial segregation in education; racial profiling; unequal access to legal aide; criminalizing the homeless, who are disproportionally minority; Stand Your Ground laws, which disproportionally affects racial and ethnic minorities; and discrimination in housing.

And on and on the list went, including a noted “lack of a national human rights institution” and “absence of a national action plan to combat racial discrimination.”

That’s not surprising given so many elected officials are more interested in enacting legislation that perpetuates racial discrimination as opposed to combating it. GOP, are you with me?

In a press conference focused on the report, CERD committee Vice Chairman Noureddine Amir also touched on the death of Michael Brown to address the problem of how discrimination affects select populations of this country.
