I Miss Vernors

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/30

After spending 44 years in Ohio, I had grown accustomed to buying a 12-pack of Vernors every month or so, just to get away from the syrupy sweet and heavy Pepsi that I will never forsake. For a time, I also had 7-UP Gold for that purpose. When 7-UP Gold existed, I would buy 3 24-packs of Pepsi and 1 24-pack of 7-UP Gold as a lightly flavored, lightly sugared break from the very heavy Pepsi.

When 7-UP Gold departed, I reverted back to Vernors Ginger Ale. Now, “ginger ale” has a connotation all its own. And Vernors does not, in any way, taste like that connotation. At all. There is nothing on this Earth that tastes like Vernors. Nothing.

But here’s my problem: They don’t sell Vernors in Texas, or at least I’ve never seen it. And ordering it online is outrageously expensive. A 12-pack of Vernors costs more than a buck a can. And it’s only just your regular, average-priced pop, just like Barqs or Coke or Pepsi or … you get the picture. And, on top of the outrageous online prices, there are outrageous shipping costs, pushing the soda pop to the 1.75 per 12-ounce can range (when bought in bulk).

I would love to have 100 24-packs of Vernors and 100 24-packs of 7-UP Gold. I would use them to take a break from the heavy Pepsi that I drink. Those 200 24-packs would cover about 500-700 24-packs of Pepsi, or almost (but not quite) a 3-year supply of pop for me, myself, and myself alone.

If Criminal #BrettKimberlin And Crew Thought Anti-Constitutional Threatening Would Silence The People

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/30


Brett Kimberlin has been major news at Memeorandum and a major trending hashtag on Twitter for several days now. And each time he or a member of his crew does anything, it makes major news in the blogosphere, creating Memeorandum thread after Memeorandum thread after Memeorandum thread. Convicted serial criminal Brett Kimberlin needs to learn the first rule of holes, and stat. (That first rule of holes is: QUIT DIGGING!!)

At this time on Memeorandum:


Patterico’s Pontifications:

Aaron Walker Arrested for Blogging?  Clearing Some of the Fog Surrounding Today’s Litigation  —  Well, partially dispelling.  —  Aaron Walker (aka Worthing) was arrested today in a Maryland courtroom.  Several days ago, convicted bomber and perjurer Brett Kimberlin had obtained a …

A Primer For That Villain #BrettKimberlin And His Villain Crew

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/30

From the US Declaration of Independence (link found in my sidebar):

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

From the US Constitution (link found in my sidebar):

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The First Amendment to the US Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Let this also serve to educate Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey, who lives in the Caribbean and has publicly declared a disdain for US Supreme Court decisions in his action destroying the US Constitution and the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
