Shocked  @ T's post!   WoW!

Thing is high value items like these are often converted to fast cash for drugs.
There isn't much humor in the situation when you consider the taxpayers being ripped off for this crap.

I'm always reminded by someone about criminal intent on "good" issues or programs.   I'm not naive T but as you know I'd rather deal with one bad apple at a time.

You can't issue what are fundamentally licenses to steal and not expect to be robbed blind.
The food stamp program should be limited to basic food items, assuring an adequate diet, but not for luxury items.

Sorry my friend, I used the wrong noun.  You should know by now you're preaching to the choir..  



Be Well.

Good thing I like canned corned beef hash, I can still afford the store brands, although Hormel is now out of reach! Shocked

damn...that sounds good.
i haven't had hash in years.

any recipe you use?
peppers?
onions?
taters?
hot sauce?
bieramar

Pretty standard breakfast menu out here - 2 eggs cooked to order, chopped green chile, and homemade corned beef hash - between $4 and $6 most places.

I suggest preparing your own corned beef and taters, then hashing it with different chilés, peppers, etc. for variety.

I usually cheat and buy the brisket in the brine/spices plastic bag.  Then steam the spuds, and cut 'em into small squares while I'm sautéing onions, garlic and green chilés in olive oil in an iron skillet.  

Then add the taters, stir in the sliced and crumbled corned beef brisket (after you've cooked it according to instructions on bag), and stick the skillet under the broiler for 3-4 minutes to crisp the top layer.

However if you've got a brine jug, here's the ratios:
2 qts water,  
1 cup salt,  
1/2 cup white vinegar  
4 tblspns sugar  
3 bay leaves  
1 tspn peppercorns  
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds  
1 dash ground cloves
Dump in the raw trimmed beef brisket, cover, and let it corn for 7-9 days.
Then cook brisket as normal; slow cooking or crock pot is best, but not necessary.

Had friends for dinner and grilled some steaks marinated in spicy steak rub with loaded baked potatoes, candied carrots, cucumbers and grape tomatoes, fresh shrimp cocktail, and for dessert, cheese cake.  I think I need a nap.
tsiya

Cook them over red maple coals and you don't need any rub or marinade, except a splash of sourmash Bourbon if you're feeling festive. Very Happy

I'm finishing my Merlot now - and had another sandwich for supper - no Dagwood this time, just fresh 5-grain bread, butter, horseradish, salt, pepper and cold rare roast beef; with a sliced vine-ripened tomato with salt and pepper on the side.

Do I drink the sourmash Bourbon or put it on the steak.  I could do both and feel doubly festive.  I will try the red maple coals, where do you get them?

Oh, I dunno, Scrutney.  It might be fun to know you're in a "fruty glow" as you sit behind the monitor and tap-tap-tap away at the keyboard, creating the next chapter of "genrecide"!

Yes. Do make that a "fruity glow"!   Cool

And a glass of Merlot, I hope.

Nope, no Merlot for breakfast - I'm a bit finicky that way.  When I booze for breakfast its beer.  Not this morning however as I'm saving myself for the VFW shindig in a couple of hours.

We are witnessing the results of universal suffrage, it will destroy us just as it has destroyed everyone else who tried it.

What political entities have been destroyed by universal suffrage?

What political entities have had universal suffrage?

Hint to answer to last question - the first national government in the recorded history of the world granted universal suffrage in 1893 (and about 50 other nations did prior to the United States finally getting on board).

I don't have a clue to what nations have been destroyed by it, but I do know of some who rescinded it during times of war, than re-instated it later.

No nation where the vote is dominated by those who make no contribution to it's sustenance can last long, it WILL  end in bankruptcy. Your solution, obviously, is some more extreme form of socialism, whatever you wanr ro call it, than we now have.  I won't haggle details with you, it is pointless.
There is no way in Hell socialism and individual liberty may coexist, your plan requires tyranny anyway you cut it.
Any time I've discussed "freedom" with a "progressive" it's been obvious that their version of freedom is no more than government license, allowing exercise of a few hedonistic acts, while holding a boot heel firmly on everybody's neck. It certainly isn't the freedom of the Constitution.
