    In a time of division, in this time when compromise goes lacking when it is exactly what is needed, Congress should install a bar or two.

    What would be wrong with POTUS having a couple brewskis? Or John Boehner with a slight buzz on? (Sure this last is frightening to contemplate - but these are desperate times, lol.)

    A convivial buzz might break deadlock.

    Sure, overdrink would lead to problems - one could imagine ex-Congressman Barney Frank in a punching match with ex-Congressman Dick Armey. But we've always been a brawling, muscular people!

    And women? Yes, ex-Congressman Nancy Sebelius might, after several, take down Congressman Michele Bachman by her hair, this is true. But I trust women to handle it far more than men.

    Anyway....

    (And incidentally, I get about half of my thread ideas from fark.com. Don't miss it - a great site.)

    You made me laugh about John Boehner. OMG, he'd be crying about everything...LOL

    Thanks for the laugh today. Although I am sure Ted Kennedy had his own bar in his coat pocket...LOL:floorlaugh::floorlaugh:

    Yes, Teddy could be pretty damn convivial without a bar in sight!

    Incidentally, Bruce Dickinson is quite an interesting guy. He has a transport pilot's license and has flown the big birds commercially.

    Yes, he could. That is why I said he probably kept a bar in his pocket. Probably had a flask the size of a fifth....LOL And of course a smaller one, that way when he took a small sip, it didn't look too bad....LOL The fifth size was for when he was in his office alone...Or when he had to take a potty break during a boring talk in the Senate. LOL:floorlaugh:

    Glaring omission in my life: I've never owned a hip flask. Probably for the best!

    You don't need one, unless you fill it with Mountain Dew, the soda pop variety, not the moonshine variety...LOL:blushing:

    I've never really been an Iron Maiden fan but heck, thread needs one of theirs. "This is your captain, Bruce Dickinson, speaking!"

    I should just carry two liters of Mountain Dew on my person at all times. (Trivia: back when Mountain Dew was first marketed, it was marketed as a real "hillbilly" beverage - back in the time when the Beverly Hillbillies was the #1 show on TV. Sell line: "It'll tickle your innards!")
