I am completely hostile towards people who seem to be unable to get on an airliner without either being drunk, or getting drunk on the flight, and causing trouble either way. As with all things, as long as drunk people are quiet and keep their shit together, who cares? But then you get this kind of situation:
As Kenny would say at Knuckledraggin: straight up White trash, God bless ’em.
I can see the day coming when all flights are booze-free, and passengers suspected of being drunk (think: breathalyzers before boarding) will be denied their flight. Or, this may only happen in shithole places like Manchester UK or Las Vegas NV, which is where most of these incidents seem to arise.
Look: nobody enjoys a relaxing pint of gin more than I do, so I feel a little sorry for people such as Mr. Free Market, who routinely get completely whacked when flying — especially on the very long ones such as UK – Hong Kong or Australia – anywhere — because frankly, it’s probably the best remedy for boredom. But people like him may have to have their fun curtailed by louts such as the above prize pair, because at some point, a drunken asshole is going to pop the cabin door at 30,000 feet, with predictable consequences.
I have to say, by the way, that I myself always travel sober for the simple reason that the normal dehydration of flying + the dehydrating effect of booze has only one result:
…so a ban on booze wouldn’t affect me at all.
But it’s always the few idiots who fuck things up for the many, isn’t it?
Good grief: does the insanity of the Left know no bounds? (That was a rhetorical question; we all know it doesn’t).
A Brit Conservative politician appeared in a social media post holding a bag of Yorkshire Tea:
…whereupon the Loony Left went batshit (as is their wont), threatening boycotts and wanting the company to dieeeee!
Never mind that arch-Lefty Jeremy Corbyn also posed with a bag of the same tea brand a couple years ago.
Note: there were no calls from conservative Brits to boycott the brand back then, because that would have been stupid.
I wish these Lefty tools would grow the fuck up. This bullshit of “if they don’t agree with us, they must be destroyed” is getting really tiresome.
On an unrelated note, I have to point out that Taylor’s Yorkshire Tea is outstanding. New Wife drinks only the “Gold” variety:
..and downs about eight large cups thereof per day. The difference between the Gold and most of the regular brands we get Over Here (e.g. Lipton’s) is enormous. If you’re a tea drinker, give it a try — you’ll thank me for it. (I don’t want to hear from the iced tea people; this is not a discussion about that foul stuff.)
As some may be aware, the Brits have been getting slammed by storm after storm after storm, bringing rain, floods, gales, more rain, more floods, more gales, and now… snow.
Even the stiff upper lip of Mr. Free Market is trembling, as witnessed by something he sent me yesterday:
Although I must say that the views on the FM estate are quite lovely:
Yeah,I know: according to the global warmists, snowfalls in Britain were supposed to be a thing of the past. So who are you going to believe: a bunch of watermelon alarmists and panic-stirring journalists [some overlap], or your own lying eyes?
6) Noted Homophobe Trump Appoints Homo As DNI — so much for that little Lefty talking point. (Of course, he’s the wrong kind of homo, being conservative, hence the howls of protest from the Hair On Fire Party.)
