I don't drink coffee, but I guess now I am gonna have to go out and buy a Keurig machine anyway...!


You probably know someone who would like one for Christmas  Grin now would be a good time to get in some early shopping and cancel out the Alts.

I still think this is a viral marketing campaign orchestrated by Keurig. 
As is the supposed Jim Beam boycott.

Yeah...SWMBO likes coffee.  I have an environmental qualm with the whole concept, though, so if I buy them it won't be to use them.  Single use plastic cups of coffee are as bad as bottled water BS.

I saw reusable cups/pods from several 3rd party makers, and if you dont insert a cup you have hot water on demand for oatmeal etc.  Just make sure you dont get the more expensive "plus" or 2.0 versions.

Closer to the topic, Newt Gingrich told Fox that the Roy Moore affair is just a local matter.

Democrats concerned Trump too 'unstable' to be trusted with nukes

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/14/politics/trump-nuclear-authorization-hearing/index.html

Quote
Washington (CNN)Congressional lawmakers raised concerns about President Donald Trump's ability to use nuclear weapons during a hearing Capitol Hill Tuesday amid bipartisan anxiety over launch process procedures and indications that the administration has considered the option of a first strike on North Korea.

Members of the Senate foreign affairs committee called into question a decades-old presidential authority to deploy nuclear weapons in what was the first congressional hearing on nuclear authorization in decades.

"We are concerned that the President of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic that he might order a nuclear weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national security interests," said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut.

Happily there is this:

Quote
Dr. Peter Feaver, a professor of public policy and political science at Duke University, also highlighted the point that any nuclear launch would be preceded by a review and consultation process.

"The system is not a button that the President can accidentally lean on against the desk and immediately cause missiles to fly as some people in the public, I think, fear it would be," Feaver testified, adding that the decision requires the President to work with military aides who are attending him -- who have possession of the materials he needs -- and personnel at all levels from top commanders all the way down to service members working in the missile silo to carry out an order.

"The President by himself cannot press a button and cause missiles to fly. He can only give an authenticated order which others would follow and then missiles would fly," he said.

The administration has been trying to soothe concerns by arguing the existing launch process that presidents have operated under for decades has sufficient checks in place that would discourage Trump from taking imprudent action. Trump himself has had multiple briefings on the nuclear launch cycle and more conventional, non-nuclear alternatives.

So we might not get vaporized from some "just watched a Fox news freakout and Twitter just doesn't get him there" issue.

Let's see...I have a mokka pot, a percolator (somewhere), two Mellita devices, an Aeropress, a Ninja
coffee bar, and maybe 3 or 4 French presses. Owning a single French press is probably a damning liberal credential alone. Don't buy a Ninja.

And no, I'm not going to smash one even if Al Gore says so.

Do all of those use disposable plastic pieces?  (I don't know what some of them are... I know percolator - old school!!)  Tried a Ninja blender thing and it was nowhere near as good as Magic Bullet.


Did Al say to smash one??  I wouldn't do it just because the inventor of the internet said so.  But might smash one based on their poor environmental record....the little plastic things.   Go buy it to protest the others smashing it, then smash it for their bad behavior towards the earth!    May just wait to find one at Goodwill...

None use disposable plastic, though several require paper filters or one of those fine screen filters. I especially like coffee presses but number one daughter - the other coffee drinker - does not. She complained to SWMBO and SHE came down on me like a ton of bricks. Never upset the family princess.

Smashing your coffee machine, I think that was all the KKKlanity klones.  My only thought about those people was what did they do the next morning when they woke up and wanted to make a pot of coffee.  OOPSie.

And the funny thing was that Hannity bought replacements for 500 of those people.  That's not exactly how boycotts work.
