Indeed Olde Frothingslosh is the stale pale ale. I fear I'm showing my age here! :-)

Anyone else recall the leap over the Bridge to Nowhere?(The one over the Allegheny...not the one that Sarah Palin fought in Alaska).

Pittsburgh - "Bridge to Nowhere"

Pittsburgh had a real "Bridge to Nowhere." The main span of the Fort Duquesne Bridge over the Allegheny River was completed in 1963. Land for the approaches had not been acquired, so the bridge stayed like this for five years.

The bridge was finally completed in 1968. It now carries Interstate Highway I-279. There are two decks of traffic.

"Michigan is getting bombarded by out-of-state union activists, including protestors from Wisconsin."

They'll take anything they can mount a sign on.

Remember it very well. I used to do a little partying up on that bridge before they finished it. It was a cool place to just walk around. Today, you would be road kill in 5 seconds. ;~))

I remember when the drunk college kid drove through the barricades and then went off the end of the bridge and landed in the river. Amazingly, he didn't even get hurt. That's when Cordic started his Bridge Jump skits on the radio.

Libs claiming it’s Crowder’s fault he was attacked and are saying he should have been killed. They are also saying the tent should have been burned down with people inside instead of just being torn down.

May we all live long enough to pass our excretions on the dead heap of union corruption. If not for unions, the US auto industry would have continued to lead the world. Same with the steel industry.

Employment contingent on joining a union is an assault on liberty, a violation of our unalienable right to associate with those we wish and no others.””

Absolutely, and if any judge worth a pinch of crap would stand and say it is indeed not right and not constitutional for unions to have “legal standing” thereby allowing the forced extortion of other employee’s wages isn’t corruption, I don’t know what is.

......here’s an idea...........business has been kind of slow for the SEALS lately............how bout shipping all 2,500 of them to Lansing!

Then, after the Union Thugs have been run through a weapons check, turn all 10,000 of them loose on the 2,500 SEALS and then just stand back and watch the fun!

Seriously speaking, these Thugs need to run up against someone besides old men, women and children!!...do em all good!

Old Frothingslosh! YES!! I used to bring a case home with me every Christmas.

The 300lb go go girl on the label as "Miss Frothingslosh" danced by the name of "Tiny Bubbles" out at the 84 bar and grill.

I'm getting all choked up at these great memories.

Next we have to talk about KDKA and Porky Chedwick!

It is pretty basic, isn’t it? Sadly, the state of affairs in Canada is that one cannot have employment unless they join that company or government union.

Pork the Torque was my mom’s second cousin. I guess that makes him my third cousin. Started at WAMO in Homestead where I was born. Never heard the end of stories about my famous relatives when I was a kid. And Terry Lee in McKeesport.
Everyone who was anyone went to the Porky dances in Bethel Park at the skating rink, and the Terry Lee dances at Glassport Firehall.
And leave us not forget the KDKA Jaybird and Rockin’ Robin. I had my mom’s whole collection until there was a fire and everything was lost...except the stories that stayed in my head. I always wished I could go back there and experience it all for myself.

“about the pro-worker legislation that prevents having to pay dues to a union.”

Parsed that reads:about the legislation that makes union dues voluntary.

Naturally, unions are furious about this. They know that nobody wants to support them.

They should also have to pay the dues in person, not have it deducted from the checks

That show is still on, !!!

I tried to watch that show but just can;t, it;s too awful.
Beckel is al mouth and I;d love to get him in the ring.
The guy who thinks he;s funny is not funny.
Perino is the typical elitist RINO.
Then the woman with legs and no brains or common sense and laps it up to Beckel

Only one person is worth listening to and he;s still not enough to have me watch whilst the other goons are on.

Not always keen on Beck but at least he told us about how th eleft works and where the money goes and he calls the left out unlike most on TV
