Jimmah, the Broken Clock

Posted by Ryan on July 3, 2007

Wow!  I just learned something new today!  I suppose the law of averages goes to show that even on accident something good can come out of something so bad.  In November of 1978, Jimmah legalized the brewing of beer at home.  While most homebrew is swill, it is kind of a freedom thing.  So I guess that broken clock was right at least once– Camp David’s legacy is still being played out so we’re not ready to give him that one yet!

Note: while Billy Beer was not a homebrew, we here at AOR like to take any chance to swipe at our 39th President and his drunken brother. By the way, the Falls Brewing Company did go out of business the year after it was released! Hiccup.

The Right Honourable Ostrich

Posted by Mike on July 3, 2007

Just days after Islamic terrorists attempted to attack London and successfully attacked Glasgow International Airport, Gordon Brown has forbidden his ministers from using word “Muslim” when describing terrorism. This move comes despite the fact that every act of international terrorism in recent years in the UK and elsewhere has been committed by Muslims. I’m sure the BBC will be gushing with pride over this bout of political correctness.

Although Brown is clearly trying to avoid straining relations with British Muslims, such efforts are futile because that battle was lost years ago. Moderate Muslims, especially in the UK, are well aware of what terrorism is and abhor it. Narrowly-tailored statements connecting radical elements of Islam to terrorism will not offend Muslims who are truly outraged that the face of their religion has been hijacked by cowardly scum. Those Muslims who do not abhor terrorism are not people one should worry about offending anyway. Covering up the nature of Islamic terrorism will do nothing to solve the problem.

Less than a week into his reign, Gordon Brown is already beginning to show that he is no Tony Blair.
