Supply Side Politics 2.0
"Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation from government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment." - Ronald W. Reagan

She's done it again
I'll be eating a lot more TacoBell.....
so anyway, last Tuesday TheMissus™ announced that she and the kids were going 'vegan'. This announcement proceeded a 34 hour filibuster on the joys and benefits of vegan-ism, the evils and horrors of meat consumption, and the pronouncement that I should be a vegan, too. (Three words: Not Gonna Happen)
As expected, it was decreed that all "animal products" be removed from the ice box. I was able to convince her that we should not just throw the food away, but that I would finish off all the "evil animal products".
Bright and early the next morning, I microwaved a plate of turkey bacon* for my breakfast as the kids were eating their free-trade organic oatmeal topped with free-range honey. I had (turkey) bacon for my breakfast everyday for the rest of the week.
So Monday evening, TheMissus™ makes a big batch of organic millet with free-trade mung beans, spinach, and hormone free yeast flakes. The kids were less than impressed. Frustrated, TheMissus™ asked if they wanted to put ketchup or something on it to make it more palatable.
Twin the Youngest piped up "Oh, yes. Can I put something on it?"
"Of course" said TheMissus. "What do you want to put on it?"
"Bacon" said Twin the Eldest.
Somehow, I thought it was a lot funnier than TheMissus™ did.
*yeah, I know it's not really bacon
