“Is That a Shillelagh In Your Pocket…”

“Opening minds and angravating liberals since 2001”

“I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.”


Genesis 3:19


My Friends and Fellow Victims of Hate:

 God is good.

Yup, He sure is.

Don’t worry, as this is not going to be another of my sermons.  But it is true, God is Good, all the time.

You see, as I am quick to mention, I am a sinner.  And, so are you.  And so is every person on Earth.

Now, stick with me for a minute, this might seem a tad strange, but, with the Muse’s input could we expect any less?

Here we go…

There is a guy, we will call him “Jim Beam.”  (You can see the Muse’s fingerprints already, canthca!)  Jim likes to drink.  A lot.  Not just one or two in a social setting, but till he passes out.  And he is unconcerned about those around him. 

He might start a fight, annoy a woman in a bar, have less than the best manners, might exhibit some questionable hygiene, might even try to drive a car or worse when he is in an inebriated state.

Now, Jim LOVES being drunk.  He thinks everyone should be drunk and if they don’t want to get drunk, they should let him be as drunk as he wants whenever and wherever he wants to be.

(By now, many of you may think you have figgered this out.  But, you would be only half-right.  For if I left it at the obvious, I would not get to my greater point, and that would be preaching.)

But, of course, cooler heads prevail and while many people think that begin constantly drunk and engaging in dangerous behavior is wrong, they say that it is up to him.  If Jim wants to drink himself to death, that is fine, just don’t hurt anyone else.  They say he should find a nice quite apartment or rented room somewhere and drink to his heart’s content in the privacy of his own home.

Jim does not want to do that.  He wants to be out and public and have everyone see how drunk he can be.  In fact, just yesterday, he wanted to march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade with a group of his friends, but they were stopped even before they got started.

The group that were running the parade had no problem with Jim and his group marching but not as blind, staggering, fall-down drunk as they were!

So, what do Jim and his friends do?  Do they agree and think it better to go home, or even to a bar, and avoid being a nuisance? Nope, they try to convince the organizers, supporters and other marchers to boycott the parade because of an “alcho-phobic” atmosphere.

By now, you are saying that could never happen.  Maybe you are right. But who is to say? 

Now, substitute “gay” for “drunk” and you have what is actually going on in some hamlets, villages and cities.   Some, like in New York, the gays want to be identified as, well, gay, in the biggest and oldest parade honoring the feast day of a Catholic Saint.  Note well, it is a Feast of a Saint.  Not a secular holiday.

(And it is only a matter of time before they put an end to this parade.  After all, separation of church and state which has been in the Constitution for the 400 years that Sheila Jackson Lee says it has been around.  I AM kidding, you know.  Sadly, that Congressperson wasn’t.)        

The organizers of the parade have no problem with gays marching. Or warlocks.  Or druids.  Or Trekkies.  They just can’t wear anything, carry a banner or otherwise identify themselves of any group without the organizers permission.

Billy the Commie DeBlahZero refused to march in the New Detroit parade to make a point. As we know, he could give JoeBama a run for the money in the common sense department. 

(It bears mentioning that prior to hitting the top of his Peter Principle, he marched in the parades every year, ditto that new idjit Mayor Walsh in Baaaaaston.  It also bears mentioning that Marxist Midget Mayor Mike Boobberg is a big proponent of “gay rights” and he marched every year he was mayor.) 

Again, without being preachy, drunkenness is no different than homosexuality to the Big Guy, both are sins.  One sin is not more pleasing than another. 

Of course, many of you saw that coming but what comes next may have been off your radar.

The fact that I am guilty of, say, over imbibing does not afford me any moral superiority over any other sinner.  (And recall, love the sinner but hate the sin.)

So, be that as it may, here comes an odd confluence.

For some odd reason, Jim Koch, he of the Boston Brewing Company, better known for Sam Adams Beer, has announced no support for the St Paddy’s Day parade in Boston and canceling the annual breakfast they sponsor.

In addition, Guinness has been bent over by GLAAD and they have withdrawn support for the NY Parade.  And not to be outdone, Heineken has gotten in bed with the gays.

Sadly, these are three of my favorite beers.  No, don’t cry for me.  There are plenty of other great beers out there as well as other potables.

Like Commie Billy DeBlahZero, Sam Adams, Guinness, Heineken and other brewers are throwing in with the small, vocal, and hating minority because they are pitiful cowards.

I was not aware that the gay “community” are big beer drinkers.  Well, if I had my way, the gays will be the only ones buying those beers.

I had a few Guinness’ the other day at a St Pats corned beef dinner, but that was before I learned of this.  I have one more Sam at home and it will be poured down the drain this evening.

What I encourage all of you beer drinkers to do is to make your unhappiness over their molly-coddling to the gays known to the brewers.  I have posted on some pages (the one to Sam Adams is at the very end) and I plan on posting on their page and/or sending those brewers an email EVERY TIME I BUY A BEER OTHER THEN THEIRS AND WHY I DID.

Again, nothing against any gay people. They are no better than I and I am no better than they, but everything against the haters like GLAAD, just like the haters at the National Action Network, the DNC, and any and every organization that has some kind of agenda that negatively affects good people.


To lend a little clarity to this, I have nothing against Atheists either.  In fact I know that a few of you who read the FISH are Atheists.  And they are not to whom this next bit is directed.

There are Atheist groups hither and yon who want crosses taken down that might be on public land.  In fact some have gone as far as to demand that the crosses on the graves of heroes at National Cemeteries be replaced.

Their rationale? 

Well, there is the non-existent Constitutional right to a separation of Church and state.

Sorry, I have no sympathy for them. NONE.   For openers, if, IF, the public display of Crosses was an attempt to evangelize, apparently it is not working. Right?  If it did, we’d be fresh out of non-believers.

Then there is the claim that it is public land.  Ignoring the fact that more of the tax-paying public are, if not CHRISTian, are not Atheist.  And as a majority carries the vote, strike two.

But the one to which they have been forced to express their desire to rid the Country of Crosses is that that are “offended.”

Awwww, boo-hoo.

Let me tell them something.  The hateful, spiteful Atheists who want to take the Crosses and all the rest (and do not misunderestimate them, they want not only Crosses gone, but Churches, Synagogues and other Houses of Worship gone) OFFEND ME.

And so does porn on television and in ads.  And public display of any kind of sexuality in the streets.  And anything else that destroys the moral fiber, the family unit and the American Way.


So, we have another choice. 

We can ignore the actions of Guinness, Heineken, Sam Adams and others at our own peril.  If their sales are not negatively impacted there will be no reason for them to change their minds.  Additionally, it will embolden other companies to do likewise.   

Maybe I am just too sensitive but every time I see some stupid corporate move made for a social convention particularly one I find anathema, I take it kind of personally.  In fact I can almost hear the hateful voice of Bill Maher saying “No Winter Ale for you, CHRISTian”, as I see is as an attack on not just good people and the American Way of Life but on God Himself.

And if I appear too sensitive, perhaps I am just sensitive enough.


I have been drinking Sam for many, many years, me brand of choice.  But no more.

I am sick and tired of small minorities stridently protesting something for which they do not have a dog in the fight.

When you dropped out of the St Pats Parade in Boston, I dropped you as my beer.

I have nothing against gays. And there is no need to expatiate on that point.

But just as the parade in NY has rules and regs, gay are permitted to march but not with identifying items to advertise being gay.

Before you get your panties in a knot, let me advise that druids, warlocks, Trekkies and others are also allowed to march, but not in regalia.

What drives me crazy is the blatant hypocrisy.  For instance, Mayor DBlasio has decided to protest the exclusion of any overt gay recognition in the NY parade.  I have no problem with that.  If he wants to molly coddle the 10-15% of gays, that is up to him.  But please notice that when he marches in gay parades, the 85-90% of straight people do not care.

It is the small and strident faction of all minorities who scream and squelch like spoiled kids until they get their own way.  Well the tides are changing and people have had enough.

And, Jim, you caved to the gays, that cost you at least one longtime fan.

If you ever decide to grow a pair, put on your big boy pants and tell every screaming faction to shut up, lemme know.  I may come back.

Till then it is sad, pathetic and cowardly.
