If McDonald´s return of Szechuan sauce wasn´t enough of a "limited time only" fast food adventure for you, Arby´s announced its bringing back its venison sandwich this month. And unlike the McDonald´s sauce debacle last week — Arby´s swears there will be enough sandwiches, and they will be at every location in America. The deer-meat sandwich was offered last fall during a limited time in select stores, but the chain known for its roast beef says because of its popularity, the sandwich is making a comeback on Oct. 21. "The positive response to our limited offering of venison last year was so
Comments: Serving venison in America is similar to serving kangaroo in Australia. Down Under the ´roos are becoming a nuisance species in some places. Twenty years ago I read that the state game and fish agency in Alabama estimated that the population of white-tailed deer within the state´s boundaries was 3,500,000. In the Lower 48 there might be one hundred million. Hunters, get busy!
Deer, lovely animals-but please Arby´s come to GA, all those white tail deer they brought down from MI in the 1940´s have, well multiplied like rabbits. They are everywhere and we can´t hunt them all. And might I make a suggestion, coyote meat? We could keep you supplied for decades.
If the deer population is getting out of control it would make sense for the various wildlife agencies to make hunting them easier. As is, you spend hundred$ getting the necessary licenses and processing if you get one, plus here in TN you have to apply for a lottery to win a limited number of chances to take a doe. That just seems to be more trouble than its worth IMO.
Were it not for my guardian angel, I would have had grilled venison last Friday morning on a narrow back road leading into Newnan Georgia. I thought ?deer? as I approached the curve, and glanced at my speedometer. I was doing 45 MPH (the speed limit). Suddenly, not more then 40 feet in front of me two ewes were crossing the road. By my math, at forty-five miles per hour on is moving at 66 feet per second. I drove right between them . . .
LeBron James has been more vocal about topics beyond basketball this offseason—most notably his criticisms of President Donald Trump—and it seems that’s by design. GQ magazine dropped a story about James on Tuesday, the opening day of the NBA’s regular season, that follows the Cleveland Cavalier superstar throughout a series of offseason meetings and events. The article sketches the 32-year-old as he looks toward his post-NBA life and relinquishes the identity of perhaps the best athlete in the world. James’ willingness to take on Trump, whom the star famously called a “bum” on Twitter, hints he’s after something bigger than just basketball.
Contrary to the Left´s favorite narrative, any Russia scandal has always been worse for Hillary Clinton than for Donald Trump. Recent revelations confirmed this Tuesday, and even implicated the special prosecutor at the center of the Trump-Russia investigation, former FBI director Robert Mueller. In 2010, the Obama administration approved a controversial deal giving Russian company Rosatom partial control of Canadian mining company Uranium One (and with it 20 percent of U.S. uranium), just as Russians paid former president Bill Clinton for speeches and Hillary Clinton was secretary of State. To make matters worse, the FBI had already gathered evidence of Russian
Hillary´s supporters are still trying to understand how they got beaten in 2016 by opponents with vastly inferior resources. Ro Khanna, a Democrat representing California’s 17th Congressional District, argued in the Washington Post that somehow Trump beat Silicon Valley at its own game and now it was up to the Valley to put its thumb down harder on the scale to make amends. "President Trump’s election last year shook Silicon Valley’s belief that the Internet always fosters societal good. Ironically, Trump used the tools of technology to win despite Silicon Valley’s overwhelming support for Hillary Clinton. It’s almost as if
"If ponies rode men and grass ate cows," goes the text of "The World Turned Upside Down," the tune piped by the Continental Army band at Cornwallis´ surrender of Yorktown. Europeans might consider adopting it as their anthem to replace the present European Community hymn, the overused Ode to Joy. The resurgent nationalists who made the Alternative fuer Deutschland into Germany´s third-largest party and the Austrian Freedom Party into that country´s second-largest (and a likely member of a new governing coalition) have an extreme-right reputation, but they are now the most pro-Israel parties in Europe. The world has indeed turned
Last week, I went to a dinner event at social club of which I am a member but rarely patronize. You will guess why when I tell you I ran into a friend of longstanding—someone I know well, but hadn’t seen in a couple of years—and she greeted me with the exclamation, “Here’s a Trumpster!” I could see that that was partly for the benefit of the gents she was talking to, a sort of tribal-marking announcement (“He’s one of those, boys”) but I couldn’t immediately tell whether the glint in her eye was friendly or otherwise. She soon cleared
PENSACOLA, Fla. — A 9-year-old Pensacola child died Saturday after her 325-pound cousin allegedly sat on her as punishment for misbehavior, according to an Escambia County Sheriff´s Office report. Veronica Green Posey, 64, was charged with homicide and cruelty toward a child after paramedics responded to a cardiac arrest call at 1:35 p.m. CT Saturday in the 300 block of Bryant Road. Upon arrival, the victim, Dericka Lindsay, was found to be unresponsive and was transported to Baptist Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Based on the arrest report, Posey told the responding deputy she sat on Dericka as a discipline "for
WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) told PJM that President Trump should not sign a bill that provides legal status to certain undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as minors, commonly referred to as DREAMers. Trump has signaled a willingness to sign legislation to afford these immigrants some sort of legal status after rescinding President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. Democrats argue Congress should pass a DREAM Act to offer young undocumented immigrants a pathway to legal residency or citizenship since their parents brought them into the country illegally through “no fault of their own.”
The bribery case against U.S. Senator Bob Menendez will proceed, and eventually be resolved by a jury, the trial judge ruled today. Judge William Walls rejected a motion by the defense to dismiss the charges against Menendez. A few days ago, it looked like the defense motion would succeed. Judge Walls initially indicated a willingness to accept Menendez’s position that the prosecution’s bribery case cannot withstand the Supreme Court’s decision in the case against former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell. However, the prosecution won the judge over through additional filings submitted over the weekend and/or the oral argument that occurred today. The legal
LARGO — Sheriff Bob Gualtieri fired a deputy Monday after an investigation found he offered to pay an 18-year-old woman he had recently arrested and her friend to come to his house while his young daughter was asleep in the home. Deputy Brian Britt, 45, was terminated after 17 years with the department. Gualtieri said his behavior was "a betrayal of his oath." "It just shows an absolute, 100 percent lack of character, lack of values, terrible decision-making," he said, "and to put your child in that type of a situation is just totally reprehensible." According to the investigation, Britt met the
The whole of Ireland will experience "violent" winds from weather phenomenon Ophelia, with each part of the country bearing the brunt of the storm for approximately three hours, a forecaster has warned. Met Éireann´s Gerry Murphy said Ophelia is "moving quickly" and each part of the country "will experience very strong winds for about three hours." The hurricane, which has been downgraded to an ex-tropical storm, is still considered life-threatening and not something Ireland has experienced before, forecasters informed the public. Residents in Cork are already in the midst of Ophelia, with up to 22,000 people in the south-west already without power
WASHINGTON – Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said any member of Congress who refuses to figure out ways to reduce federal spending and move closer to a balanced budget is “betraying their country and betraying the future of our kids and grandkids.” The U.S. national debt recently surpassed $20 trillion. “Everyone who refuses to examine this issue and come up with constructive ways to cut federal government spending so we can balance our budget and minimize our risk of insolvency and bankruptcy, everyone who refuses to do that is betraying their country and betraying the future of our kids and grandkids
I´ve been banging on about this journalistic disgrace on Twitter (@dkahanerules) for months, and finally even the Times has had enough. "The New York Times announced on Friday an updated and expanded set of guidelines for our journalists’ use of social media." (Snip) There was a time, in the not-too-distant past, when the Times wouldn´t even allow its reporters on television, so as not to compromise their professional integrity. But since the beginning of the Trump administration, it has sat by and let its White House correspondents, Maggie Haberman and Glenn "Hack" Thrush, merrily voice their contempt for the president,
Hillary Clinton was forced to make a series of embarrassing media cancellations today after falling and hurting her foot, MailOnline can reveal. The former First Lady failed to show up at BBC Woman’s Hour, ITV´s This Morning show and at the London Studios to record an interview with the BBC´s Graham Norton Show. Sources said her fall had followed her appearance at the South Bank Centre last night and the twice-defeated Presidential candidate had been exhausted after a lengthy book promotion tour. This Morning presenter Philip Schofield said on Snapchat: ´Supposed to be interviewing Hillary Clinton... but she´s fallen over
Hillary Clinton fell and broke her toe during her book tour in London as President Trump said he hoped she would run for president again in 2020.Clinton, who had to cancel several interviews on Monday, appeared on "The Graham Norton Show" with a protective walking boot on her right foot.“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” she said.“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe,” Clinton continued, going on to say she received
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of
Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or
Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was
If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games. (Photos/Tweet) Here’s a shot of the Jaguars stadium at kickoff: (Tweet) Photos of empty
Former NFL quarter Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners because he believes they colluded to keep him out of a job due to his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick first protested in the 2016 preseason when he took a knee during the national anthem. He claimed he protested against racial injustice across the country. The protests took off, with many players following his lead.Kaepernick hired criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jordan and musician Chris Brown. CBS Sports reported this statement from Geragos: We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the
Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions. (Snip) ´To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,´ he said. He added: ´We live in a land made of
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government
Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) said in a radio interview on Sunday that Democrats can lose to President Donald Trump in 2020 if they "overdo it" by becoming too liberal. Durbin was asked on a local Chicago radio program about comments from Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), who warned fellow Democrats that Trump would be reelected if the party becomes too liberal. CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski was first to report on Durbin´s comments. (Audio) "We need to be balanced," Durbin said on "Connected to Chicago" on WLS-AM. "She´s right about that. And as downstater like her, I understand
