    For those of you who watched this commercial, there are some less than hidden meanings. A person might hate "the other" until he knows more about who the other is...a name and a life story. I personally know a lot of Republican Trump supporters and they are good people. I knew them before they became Trump supporters and they are still my friends. On the flip side, those Trump supporters know that I was an avid Obama supporter, but they knew me as an individual before either of our political views became widely known. And that's what matters.

    I expect that the same could apply to many in Congress, but being a member of a party somehow compromises your identity. We know of them as a Republican first and a human being second. It should be the other way around.

    Just a thought as I drink a Heineken beer and think about life. Proost.

    Which is why I stick to message boards for political commentary. I don't do it on Facebook even though I don't do Facebook much. I also don't do it on LinkedIn. Of course LinkedIn is becoming almost as bad as Facebook.

    With Trump's policy concerning transgendered people serving in the military, I believe he sent a clear signal to haters that it's okay with this administration for people to attack other people in a violent manner, just as he supported the white nationalists when referring to the Charlottesville terrorist attack on anti white supremacists, having a beer isn't going to solve anything. Not as long as we have a divider in chief.

    Beer has the shelf life of milk. Drinking most imported beer is drinking beer in the first stage of spoilage. That is the reason most beer is in dark bottles. To help preserve the quality.

    My neighbor never allows beer to get a shelf life, he has his 12 pack every afternoon about 2 p.m., and afterwards stumbles around the parking lot aimlessly, someday he'll fall on the gravel and break his face, he already tried to break his face on a coffee table, I expect to hear sirens any day now. Too much beer is bad for you. I wished I had a video camera and a youtube account so I could show people how beer is abused.
