The Hangover is officially going on hiatus. Faithful readers have surely noticed a considerable slowdown over the past six months. This is one thing in contemporary America that can’t be blamed on the economy, however. There is a novel to be completed and The Hangover is going to be totally immersed in full-contact fiction-writing. Outside of a possible music post or two, The Hangover will resume when the manuscript is complete.
However, we do reserve the right to comment if some act completely egregious to common sense raises our ire. This could include:
- Health Care “reform” that doesn’t do anything except create mandatory customers for insurance companies–who are obviously the root of the problem (along with their lobbyists). Count us among those who would prefer our health care decisions be made by a bureaucrat, as opposed to a “fat-assed” CEO or corporate drone whose bonus is tied to the greed-driven profit of a health care conglomerate. (And why do our prescription drugs cost more than those in Canada? Our beer doesn’t cost any more money, and isn’t alcohol a drug?)
- Corruption in Congress that blocks common sense legislation. Those who have the most lobbyists with the deepest pockets win. It’s disgusting, as are our elected representivives as individuals. None of these clowns would ever get laid if they didn’t have their government jobs.
- A car industry that continues to build Hummers for non-military use. Yep, that will lead us to energy independence.
- Less prison time for a football-playing, drunk-driving, people-killer (Dante Stallworth) than for a football playing dog-killer (Mike Vick) or a football-playing dumbass (Plexico Burress), who shot only himself in a nightclub.
If The Hangover continues to dwell on these subjects, the long-awaited novel will never be completed. Unfortunately, with a country like this, The Hangover could be pulled back into action tomorrow.
