The definition of political here seems to be “anything that upsets a lot of people”. Fine. But not the same as political. 

Here's my take:

It's not that the post upsets someone. It's that a post has a not-so-subtle political take that will take things down a path that the admins have long indicated they don't want things to go down. Might the post upset someone, as well? Yes, but that's not why these posts get nuked - it's because they *are* political. To me, it's really that simple.

Actually made some Shredded Chicken Chili the other night.  Turned out a little more like Chicken Tortilla soup, but still good. 

 

Topped that off with Whoopie Pies from scratch.  The filling was amazing!

Hell, I think even @nw baltimore wx and @Scraff would have a hard time finding a beer that would compliment that "dish"!!

Drinking a 120, and I scroll down and see that shit. I actually think I could eat some of that and take a sip of this and not even flinch. Not sure if compliment is the right word, but this beer can cut through anything.

I may hate this more than stormtracker hates cicadas. It looks like someone vomited over dog food and put it on a plate.

But what makes discussing a viral pandemic mitigation strategy or AGW or the merits of scientific methodology political...because none of those things is inherently political.  Its simply because one of our political parties has decided to use each topic to their advantage in some way and the people who subscribe to their propaganda then get upset when someone says something not aligned to it. But that can happen to ANYTHING!  What if Republicans decide beer is bad and they get mad if we talk about drinking. Does that mean we can’t discuss micro brews anymore?  What if they decide football is bad over the anthem crap... then we can’t talk that anymore?  So again what’s “political”?  Ok my definition was too narrow. I guess the better one is “any topic that one of our parties manages to convince their sycophants to get all bent about”.  I’d prefer not to give either of our jackass political parties that kind of power over our lives.

Had to say @vastateofmind, FiOS is so much better than comcast. Xfinity can eat it. They throttle me here at school and we get 1/10 of the speeds we pay for. I have FiOS back home and have zero complaints. We don't do cable anymore and I think we are getting 500mb speeds for something like 70 a month. Cannot recommend it enough.

LOL...so, Mrs. VAStateOfMind did NOT buy the 120 last week at Weggy's, @CAPE. She took a chance on this instead....and honestly, it's damn good. I think that you, possibly @Scraff, @nw baltimore wx and @North Balti Zen might be attracted to Smartmouth brews, but....I'll bet it's still not comparable to the 120. I might have to make the trip to buy that 120 myself this weekend, come hell or high water.  :)

I’ve never seen or even heard of them. I’ll keep an eye out!

Well that certainly is a tad different than a 120!

Looks quite good though.

Next time, go yourself, and get the 120.:drunk:

Where I live is a desert for beer choices.  If you aren’t after the 30 pack of Bud or Miller, you are going to have to search far and wide to hit on something worth investing in.  
But lately I have seen the Dogfish 60 min IPA showing up in various places, likely the result of an ambitious sales rep.  I am doing my best to support his/her efforts, hoping at some point that they see the potential market for the 120.

The 60 min is a very drinkable IPA. The 90 min is a step above with a noticeably more malty backbone. The 120 is an absolute beast.
