Mosque or not

I am appalled at all my friends who are so opposed to the mosque near ground zero.

To show our tolerance, we should let them build it.
Then right across the street, someone should put a topless bar, called “You Mecca Me Hot”.
Next to that should be a gay bar, “The Turban Cowboy”.
And next door to the mosque should be a pork rib restaurant, maybe “Iraq o’ Ribs”.

Then the Muslims could be allowed to show their tolerance.

Problem solved

Something New I Have Discovered...

Let’s get one thing clear.

There is a fine line between grilling and BBQ’ing.

As a Southerner, (yes, I was born and raised in Florida) I fall into a pretty passionate culture regarding these two distinctions. For those raised in the South, grilling out typically refers to cooking items over direct heat on a grill, ex. grilled steaks, chicken, hamburgers, etc.
BBQ is a whole different ballgame. It’s a lifestyle of love, patience, smoke, and mystery. Ask ten men on how to smoke a pork shoulder and you are likely to get ten independent, and fiercely debated, methods.

Instead, I’d like to let you in on a little known fact that I just discovered regarding grilling.

Most of you are probably not grilling enough.

There, I said it.

Your grill is truly the beast of all your culinary appliances. With the proper technique and know-how, you can utilize your grill as a stove, broiler, oven, and smoker; all-in-one. By harnessing all of the grill’s power, you are able to expand well beyond foods typically considered traditional for the grill.

In other words, it’s time to get creative and think outside the burger box.

What does that mean?

Try marinating chicken with...say Coffee, Beer and Cocoa.
Wrap beef cubes with Bacon and skewer them ala Kabobs.
Whip up a batch of Smoked French Onion Soup in a cast iron kettle on the grill.

My Idea to Fix This Great Nation.......

Dear Mr. President:

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy.

Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.
Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.

4) They MUST buy their own health insurance. - Health Plan for seniors just fixed!!!

It can't get any easier than that! If more money is needed, have all members of Congress and their constituents pay their taxes.

God Bless America.
