AND FIX ME A DRINK, WOULD YA’?
[NBC’s] Mott reported:
In the past two days, men’s speed skating was slowed to a standstill because of poor ice conditions, further complicated by the environmentally friendly machines, used in place of the tried and true Zamboni, that kept breaking down. A Zamboni is being brought in from Calgary.
On USAToday.com, Tom Weir explained the malfunctions, “that delayed the women’s 3,000 meters Sunday and which threatened to postpone the men’s 500 Monday were unprecedented at Olympic speedskating,” and were caused by Canada putting “green” interests ahead of reliability:
The problems suffered by Olympia brand resurfacers brought into question the decision of the Vancouver Olympics to be as green as possible, and use electric-powered machines to groom the ice. To prevent further problems, a traditional, propane-powered Zamboni has been trucked in from Calgary.
But not to worry; that truck runs on soy milk, not diesel!
I thought propane was eco-acceptable. Maybe they thought the Zamboni just looked too much like an SUV.
Speaking of guzzlers, he’s shaken, not stirred;
A Westport lawmaker who voted to hike the state sales and alcohol taxes was spotted brazenly piling booze in his car – adorned with his State House license plate – in the parking lot of a tax-free New Hampshire liquor store, the Herald has learned.
Michael J. Rodrigues’ blue Ford Crown Victoria, emblazoned with his “House 29” Massachusetts license plate, was parked outside a Granite State liquor store on Interstate-95 South over the weekend, according to a witness who provided pictures to the Herald.
It’s those darn Reich-winging, tea-bagging, tax-resisting, Democrat state legislators again!
When lawmakers have to flee the state to avoid their own laws, maybe it’s time for change. Liberals can’t even find ice in the Canadian winter anymore.
Use the Zamboni, don’t ban it. Mix the martini, don’t tax it.
Common Sense is the Last Resort of a Liberal. After liberalism fails.
