Posted on 11/24/2018 8:27:46 AM PST by sodpoodle
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel.
Beer required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture, about 9,000 years ago.
Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.
The wheel was invented to get man to the beer and vice versa. These two were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.
Other men who were less skilled at hunting (called 'vegetarians' which was an early human word meaning 'bad hunter') learned to live off the Conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hairdressing. This was the beginning of the liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men evolved into women. Others became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that Conservatives provided.
Over the years Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious reasons.
Modern Liberals like special flavored beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine spritzers or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: many liberal women have higher testosterone levels than their men.
Most college professors, social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, film makers in Hollywood, group therapists and community organizers are liberals. Liberals meddled in our national pastime and invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink real beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are members of the military, game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, airline pilots, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other Conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when Conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today's lesson in world history. It should be noted that a liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to this post.
A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be shared immediately to other true believers and to just piss-off more liberals.
And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self, I'm going to grab a few beers and grill some steaks!
Love it. One of my favorites.
Thanks for posting it.
Just stay away from the IPAs. Hops have a lot of phytoestrogens, so drinking too much IPA can turn you into a soy boy.

Can IPAs be used as chemotherapy for prostateCa?

Its worth a try. Drink six and see if you feel better.
Let us know.
You forgot bacon.
I love IPA And youre full of shiite !
And the downfall was the invention of the automobile. Before the auto, man drank his beer and his horse pulled the wagon with his drunken butt sleeping in it, home to the fire.
Stoned dude, crawled into a warm cabin and slept it off. No three car pile ups with 6 dead folks.
No phones to call the sheriff, and he didn't care anyway.
You are so right; we keep inventing stuff that kills us.
I wouldnt know about that.
Instead of ATF, we should have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drivers' Licenses! :^) Thanks sodpoodle.
I like the Beerista on the right. :^)
It was probably women, not girly men who domesticated cats. It helped to have cats hanging around the cave to eat rats and mice and play with the children. It was usually dumb conservative men in power who ordered killing of cats and dogs when the plague was active, thus giving rats and their fleas greater opportunity.
We have one of those here.
Bread making came after the invention of beer.
I'll have a hit of whatever you're on. :^) How was your T-giving?
