Irish Bacon

We went to Ireland a couple of years ago, and in addition to the fantastic seafood and delicious lamb, there was the "full Irish" breakfast that included back bacon. It's loin, rather than the American pork belly.

I'm still fine-tuning the recipe - a little more brown sugar and a little less smoke. It's a wet or Wiltshire cure, marinated for a week, dried for a day, then smoked. Slice it up and lightly brown in a pan.

This is also a good way to use the full pork loin that is sometimes on sale at a very reasonable price, but as a roast, tends to come out dry.

pearce locks out constituents

5 constituents and a photographer from @American_Bridge were locked out of steve pearce's (R-NM-02) meet & greet in Mimbres. Why? We carried signs and expressed contrary opinions. We were non-confrontational, did not attempt to bring signs in.

We attempted to enter the community center and found the door locked. Eventually, pearce's bouncer came to the door to let others in but would not let us in. We said that we were constituents who wanted to talk to pearce.

He replied that we were just going to make trouble. I said " We're not going to make trouble, just want to ask some questions." He replied, "Yeah, right." I attempted to hold onto the doorknob and he became a bit menacing. Decided not to create an incident.

Photographer recorded statements from us; hopefully will appear on @American_Bridge later this week. Meeting was poorly attended, 20-25 people including a few Democrats who got in. Contact inside reported typical pearce evasiveness and his supporters poorly informed.

Pearce wants our opinion?

Let's give it to him: https://www.ourcauseourvoice.com/2018-issues/

Pearce: Putting the American taxpayer and economy first

Pearce on fracking.
Translation: "pearce: putting corporate profits ahead of everyone and everything.

"I applaud the BLM today for putting the American economy and taxpayer first by rescinding this unnecessary regulation. Many of these Obama-era environmental rules were duplicative in nature and made in order solely to cripple energy production on federal lands. This doesn't better preserve our environment, but cuts off sources of revenues for states like New Mexico who rely on the production and development of resources to support our teachers, infrastructure, and more. From the very beginning, federal courts declared that the BLM did not have the proper authority to regulate hydraulic fracturing on public lands. By rescinding the rule altogether, the BLM upholds the rule of law and moves the nation closer towards becoming less reliant on foreign energy production. With that, New Mexico can once again have the opportunity to become a leader in energy development."

What total bullshit.

Tennessee: Signs are a safety hazard, but guns are OK

From USA Today Network:
Tennesseans will be allowed to bring their guns to the new home of the legislature but must leave any hand-held signs behind, according to a recently implemented policy.

The policy, which Lt. Gov. Randy McNally, R-Oak Ridge, and House Speaker Beth Harwell, R-Nashville, approved Dec. 14, expressly prohibits “hand-carried signs and signs on hand sticks” because they “represent a serious safety hazard.”

Is this sick or what?

Anonymous press release (pearce?)

From the Grant County Beat:

Washington, D.C. (December 18, 2017) Last Friday, the House and Senate Conference Committee released their final report of the compromised version of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. Today, the Tax Foundation released a preliminary economic analysis, highlighting overall economic effects this bill will achieve if passed and signed into law.

"… the plan would significantly lower marginal tax rates and the cost of capital, which would lead to a 1.7 percent increase in GDP over the long term, 1.5 percent higher wages, and an additional 339,000 full-time equivalent jobs. In 2018, our model predicts that GDP would be 2.45 percent, compared to baseline growth of 2.01 percent."

"The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a pro-growth tax plan, which, when fully implemented, would spur an additional $600 billion in federal revenues from economic growth…"

Note: the Tax Foundation is a big-business group.

NM's Pearce redefines "New Mexico Small Business"

NM-02 misrepresentative steve pearce posted this over the weekend. “Lunch with the family at Rosa’s Cafe, a New Mexico small business.”

I don’t think so.

Rosa’s Cafe is a chain of over 40 locations, mostly in Texas, and part of Bobby Cox Companies, a multi-chain conglomerate headquartered in Texas.

Small Business?

Sure the restaurants provide some local employment, mostly low-paying, & collect sales tax, but any corporate trickle-down (?) is not going to fall in New Mexico. The profits are siphoned off to an out-of-state corporation. If pearce can’t figure out what a New Mexico business is, he doesn't belong in congress, nor in Santa Fe.
