Hazard Pay

I never imagined I’d get to feel like a combat reporter while writing political satire.  I gotta thank The Donald for that. After hearing him describe the constant violence and horror of black neighborhoods, I feel like I need a helmet and flak jacket just to write about them.  Looking back, I can’t believe I survived living in DC years ago.  One of my friends even took me to her church for lunch.  For lunch!  If I’d have known how brave that was of me, I’d have put in for a medal or something.  Anyway, here’s my take on day-to-day life in the combat zone–Why Not?

Friday Night Beer Review

Being a political satire AND beer review site, it seems like it’s time to start a regular beer review feature.  I can put out a daily satire, but–fortunately for me and my health–my semi-daily beer-drinking days ended in college.  A weekly item (reserving the right to…um..commemorate special events) seems more my current style.  Anyway, here is the inaugural Friday Night Beer Review–Stone Enjoy By 09.05.16.  Stone’s latest Enjoy By IPA is a funky unfiltered double IPA.  It’s worth a look (and a taste), but you better hurry.  It expires on September 5th.

Outreach

Gotta give The Donald credit for reaching out this week.  He’s really showing white people how much he cares about minorities.  Er–he’s telling them, at least.  There’s not a whole lot to show.  Don’t worry, though, it seems to be catching on.  Check out Trending for the new craze Trump’s efforts have spawned.

Second Scoop

As promised, here’s satire number two for the day.  Back and Forth is a deep dive into the innermost secrets of Trump’s decision-making apparatus.  I hope you find it illuminating.

Double Dipping

Ok–Trump is killing me.  I just can’t keep up.  I had a piece all set for today, and then he has to go and talk about “premedication.”  And THEN he has to go flip flop his immigration position.  No amnesty, of course, but they can stay…the good ones…  What?  Anyway, the only sensible response is to write two satires for the day.  I’ll push back what I had planned and start off with Premedicated.  More to come in a few hours.

True to Himself

You’ve gotta give Trump credit for this–he is consistent.  It doesn’t look like he’s ever met a a conspiracy theory he doesn’t like.  Since being a birther worked for him, why not double down?  If you’re craving a dose of conspiracy theory with your breakfast (or lunch), check out today’s satire Never Better.

Day 2!

So we survived launch day.  It was pretty hectic with all  the social media we’ve got going on.  All in all it was a very good day.  I want to thank all of you who shared/liked/retweeted and just visited the website.  We’re off to a very good start.  We got lots of hits and likes.  I know it’s up to me to keep it going.  Here’s daily satire #2: Endangered Species.  I hope you like it.  As always, share/like/retweet/buy a billboard to advertise it, as appropriate.  Thanks.

And We’re Live…

Welcome to Don’t Fruit the Beer.  I’m excited to get this under way.  For too long, too many people have been slavishly falling in line, and putting fruit in their beer.  This just has to stop.

I know, some of you think fruiting your beer makes it better.  It doesn’t.  Stop it.  Now.

Oh–and I’ll have some things to say about the election while I’m at it.  Hopefully you’ll let me be your daily stop for a quick satire about The Donald.  I certainly won’t run out of material.  I’m kicking things off with Extremely Qualified.  Check it out if you haven’t yet.  There are links to more if you like what you see.
