3 What kind of alcohol do conservatives drink? Beck's beer and O'Reilly's Irish Stout. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 16, 2011, 1:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Soggy, you're in one of your moods again, aren't you? :-) I like absinthe because I was introduced to it a few years back and it made me feel good and relaxed without the whole vomiting and hangover bits :-D My political beliefs had nothing to do with it. But I am a counter culture progressive (since the current culture is as far to the left as it was to the right in the early 60s). Still doesn't make it right to assume things about me (things you even admit you thought you knew but now don't for sure). *I* assumed you were more open minded and better than that. Oh well, I guess we both learned something ;-) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 14, 2011, 6:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Since you are always quick to attack left-of-center people and organizations and ideas, and usually missing in action when the subject is a right-of-center person or organization or idea, I have come to assume you are right of center. ("If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...", etc etc) And since you won't clarify the matter by telling us where you DO stand, philosophically, you can hardly expect someone to NOT make such an assumption about you. However, some of your posts do tell me you aren't an orthodox conservative. (Or at least they indicate a guy who is as likely to embrace elements of our modern toxic culture as he is to gripe about them.) But the fact is that absinthe has been associated pretty closely with counterculture-type personalities going back well over a hundred years, and its present popularity in this country is confined mostly to folks who consider themselves progressives of one sort or another. Therefore, my assumptions about you are not so unrealistic on their face, are they? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 14, 2011, 2:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 So we're defining people's political beliefs by their beverages of choice now? What type of alcohol do conservatives consume, then? Don't think I can be pigeonholed *that* easily. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 14, 2011, 5:36 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Of course I've heard of absinthe. I just can't picture a guy who complains about liberals drinking a beverage usually associated with liberals. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 13, 2011, 8:36 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I don't care one way or another about beer, but then again, I seldom (if ever) drink. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 13, 2011, 8:12 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I'm drinking some beer right now, since I live in a dry county and it's the only thing I could get to celebrate Lebron losing when it matters most yet again :-D Soggy, don't tell me you never heard of absinthe... -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 13, 2011, 3:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Absinthe???? What the???? Oh, never mind; to each his own. I seem to have misread this crowd; I could have sworn there were a few beer drinkers among you lot, or at least a couple of you - aside from the always-reliable Kingbk - who appreciated a high-quality brew (as opposed to your basic Bud and related swill). But no. By the way, King, I too like a good stout or other dark beer on occasion, but there are some mighty decent amber and pale ales out there too. And I've become fond of a variety called Scotch Ale, some brands of which are aged for several months in whiskey barrels, which gives them a wonderfully smooth taste. (They can also be upward of 9 percent alcohol....) American beer definitely boned the fish in the mid-20th century when the big-box corporations - Budweiser, Miller and Coors - drove most of those nice old regional brews out of business and replaced them with watery, soulless crap that really IS good for nothing but getting you drunk. The birth, some 30 years ago, of the craft beer movement, and all the wonderful micros that have resulted, qualifies in my book as a first-class reverse-bone. (The greater availability of good imports helps too.) For the record, I like my vodka too, and the world would be poorer without either rum or tequila. (And one of my kinfolks buys me a fifth of Tanqueray for my birthday every year, which is a damn fine tradition.) But I'm a beer man through and through. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 13, 2011, 1:38 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Kingbk, what about people that drink things like Rum, Jack Daniels, Vodka etc. ? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on June 12, 2011, 7:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Pros: Goes good with many foods, wide varieties from many different countries. Cons: Drunk driving, some people over imbibe and become abusive when drunk. I don't drink, so... -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 12, 2011, 7:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Soggy, I have just one word for you: gotcha >;-D When I saw your first post, I just couldn't resist :-) I'm actually more of the wine drinker type, I don't like the "full" feeling beer gives me, or how it makes me want to piss every 5 minutes. That's not to say I *hate* beer, I just hardly ever drink it except with friends. Actually I'm an absinthe guy first and foremost. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 12, 2011, 6:14 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 @Pelirojo. I think you just solved the riddle of the best thing before sliced bread...........beer. For most people, I don't drink so I can't really comment here. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on June 12, 2011, 5:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 I'll mark this date on my calendar: Mr Hugely Opinionated About Almost Everything has no opinion about something. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 12, 2011, 1:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 I think there are two types of people for those that choose to drink alcohol: beer drinkers and wine drinkers. Though I love a good glass of vino, I'm definitely more of a beer guy. However, I'm not a big drinker, so when I have a beer I want one that is satisfying. For me, a good, quality beer has great taste and most of the time is darker in coloration. Commercial crap like bud light, miller, keystone is NOT quality beer. Those are for people who drink to get drunk. I like to spend a little more to get something I can truly enjoy. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 12, 2011, 12:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
17 I'm somewhat with DolFan here! While I'm fascinated that this seems to have been the first commodity produced by humans (i.e. early barns that stored grasses to feed newly domesticated livestock had leaky roofs which let rain in to ferment said grasses. Long short is that beer seems to have been around at least 1000 years before bread), I can't say this is something I ever was into. Maybe I share the tastes of the more Continental part of my background but I far preferred wine or rum when I wanted booze. Of course, it should be consumed only by legal adults who are aware of risks + health issues and if one wants to get drunk on it, please call a cab or designated driver instead of risking other drivers,pedestrians. Cab fare is FAR cheaper than legal fees. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 12, 2011, 9:31 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 I have no opinion about beer one way or the other. I can take it or leave it. Beer just doesn't matter that much to me. I just don't get that excited about beer. It is what it is. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 12, 2011, 6:03 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Nobody here at BTF has an opinion about beer? That's pretty bizarre if you ask me. The most important subject in the world, the most wonderful substance ever created, and you hyper-opinionated characters can't think of a thing to say about it. Oh well - maybe you just don't comment on things that are COMPLETELY UNBONEABLE, since their greatness speaks for itself. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 11, 2011, 9:01 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
