Where There’s Smoke…

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

Prometheus, that bastard, taught mankind how to cook with fire, thereby setting in motion a scheme to destroy the ozone layer causing climate change that will kill us all.

He got off easy.

Look for the City of Minneapolis to ban outdoor cooking by 2020.

  1. Got off easy, huh?

    The crawling glaciers pierce me with the spears
    Of their moon-freezing crystals, the bright chains
    Eat with their burning cold into my bones.
    Heaven’s wingèd hound, polluting from thy lips
    His beak in poison not his own, tears up
    My heart; and shapeless sights come wandering by,
    The ghastly people of the realm of dream,
    Mocking me: and the Earthquake-fiends are charged
    To wrench the rivets from my quivering wounds
    When the rocks split and close again behind:
    While from their loud abysses howling throng
    The genii of the storm, urging the rage
    Of whirlwind, and afflict me with keen hail.

  2. “Look for the City of Minneapolis to ban outdoor cooking by 2020.”

    If that happens, it will sound the death knell for the Demonrat party.

  3. “Look for the City of Minneapolis to ban outdoor cooking by 2020.”
    Given their authoritarian nature, one can only imagine that Minneapolis Democrats will then require Minneapolitans to use Soylent as their lone and only food source… except for DFL leadership gatherings when only prime grilled meats, Boston Cream Pie and fine tobacco will be served at taxpayer expense.

  4. Your liberty is their enemy. The fact that you want to do something means that you must be stopped, as far as they are concerned that means that you are putting your needs above the needs of the collective.
    “Everything that not forbidden is compulsory” is not just a joke. If they have their way, you will be left shivering and starving in the dark.

  5. Hoss you wonderfully naive optimist. Don’t you realize that the ban will be preceded by a 5 year campaign to educate the reality based community about the hate outdoor grilling represents?

    By 2020, Weber will be a name every leftist hisses at.

  6. Death to “Big BBQ.”

    Speaking of airborne pollution, whatever happened to “acid rain”? It used to be one of horse(wo)men of the apocalypse. Haven’t heard of it in ages. Did it go the way of global cooling?

    I always felt that if we banned the cooking of all foods and required sexual intercourse only be performed in a standing position, we’d have a much more healthy and small population. Since none of my original ideas ever turn out to original, is there another shoe yet to be dropped?

  7. Joe; Great point! It’s funny how acid rain disappeared from the daily lexicon. Of course, the environazis will crow that their earlier batch of bans/requirements for releasing industrial emissions, had a positive affect and eliminated that menace.

  8. I’m thinking before Mpls bans outdoor grilling they’ll first institute a “sin” tax on charcoal and propane.

  9. Um, gracious host, I’m thinking that what’s at stake here (at steak?) is not just outdoor cooking, but any high temperature cooking of meats. It reminds me of the old Rush Limbaugh/Paul Shanklin bit where the USDA comes out in favor of boiling meat to avoid that dangerous, carcinogenic char-broiled flavor.

    I’m pretty sure that even frying in oil would be right out. Yikes! We are talking about some serious tastelessness in foods.

  10. BTW, true BBQ, where the meat is not charred and never gets above 230F, would be OK. Grilling or pan-frying, on the other hand…..
