Had the occasion to take the wife out for her 50th birthday and we went to a “new” restaurant in our area.  I say new because we haven’t been there.  I think the place has been open for a couple of years.

I of course started my dinner off with a beer flight.  4 different 4oz beers for $10. Surprisingly the Black IPA was my favorite.

The wife ordered Poutine for an appetizer.  Everything with a fried egg on it is good.

One of the drinks of the night was the Mojito.  The wife got one and instead of rum, it was made with whiskey

Several good items on the menu that I wanted to try but I went with the “Sticky Chicken.”  Fried thighs with a whiskey based glaze.  This was really,really good !!!

The wife ordered the “Pork Belly Korean Fried Rice.”  Again, with a fried egg on it, how could it not be good??

After Work, At The Range

Summer is a much better time to shoot, but hey, can’t control the weather so I gotta shoot inside.

J.R. Shooting Sports” is on my way home, so this is where I ended up.

My Beretta M9 22.

I now have 4 15 round magazines which is both good and bad.

Good that I can shoot more before having to reload, bad that I can shoot more before having to reload.  Range time here is $20 an hour but if you buy $20 of ammo, you can shoot until you fall asleep.  I brought 400 rounds from home and bought another 525 to get the unlimited time.  I spent about 90 minutes there and if I had not had to leave for dinner, I might have stayed longer.  As it was, I went through just the 400 rounds I brought with me but could have easily gone through much more.

Pretty nice range and setup.

I shoot mostly at 20-25 feet.

The person to my right was shooting a pretty sweet 357 with a 7-8″ barrel. (He was about average)

Good, but not great.  That’s why it’s called practice.

And dinner, a nice bacon Cheeseburger at Red Robin.

Obamacare: “Repeal/Replace”

There is currently a lot of teeth gnashing, high pitched wailing and panty bunching going on from liberals about the possibility of Obamacare being repealed. Personally, I highly doubt the GOPe will actually do it.

But most of the complaints from the above panty bunching wailers are that they claim the Republicans don’t have a plan to replace Obamacare.

To that, I say, “GREAT!!”

99% of American citizens neither want nor need Obamacare.  For the 1% that does, Medicare/Medicaid can be expanded to include them at a much lower cost and burden to the other 99%.

Any Republican that supports repealing Obamacare should use this food analogy:

Obamacare is a shit sandwich that was delivered to your dining table without being ordered.  Only a few desperate people would eat a shit sandwich.

You didn’t order the shit sandwich

You don’t want to eat the shit sandwich

Why would you send the shit sandwich back to the kitchen and have them send another shit sandwich out?

Time to order a new entrée off menu.
