…by buying Heroes Vodka. It’s new, it’s by a Veteran for Veterans.

If/when it ever gets out this way, I’ll definitely partake. Those of you in Tennessee and in the east may already be able to do so.

Tip one for me.

Vodka by a veteran, for veterans (and other cocktail lovers)
By Bill Briggs

Between sampling and selling his first batch of Heroes Vodka, Marine veteran Travis McVey concocted a catchy marketing slogan.

“Some people drink to

forget. We drink to remember,” McVey said in a phone interview this week, referring partly to two friends, Marine buddies killed in the line of duty.

“I was sitting at the VFW on (a recent) Memorial Day with some other veterans. I was looking at the bar,” McVey said. “I was thinking: No one has ever really marketed a veteran-owned spirit company. And what better name than ‘Heroes?’ Everybody has served, but the guys who didn’t come back are true heroes to me. I wanted to create a product that would be in honor of their service, something that people could raise their glass to and give a toast.”


A Little Under the Weather…

Not feeling too well since last night, so my posting may be light the next couple of days while I shake off this crud.
Thanks for dropping by.

…it’s hump day and here’s a hottie for the day.
This is Mai Nishida.

…is what I would have titled it, but this works.

Read the whole thing. It’s good. The entire letter is at the end of the article.
It’s coming from a CEO. Not a politician. Someone that hires people. Someone that fires people.
Decisions that are based on economic principles that liberals just can’t figure out.

Pay attention libtards.

CEO to Workers: You’ll Likely Be Fired If Obama Is Re-elected
By: Robert Frank

David Siegel, the owner of Westgate Resorts, sent a surprising email to his employees Monday.

It said that if President Barack Obama wins re-election and raises Siegel’s taxes, he will have to lay off workers and downsize his company — or even shut it down.

“If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company,” he wrote. “Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for ever


In a version of Romney’s “47 percent” remarks, Siegel added that “people like me who made all the right decisions and invested in themselves are being forced to bail out all the people who didn’t. The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed 42 years of my life for.”

The points are ones that have often been made during this election. But what makes the letter surprising is the source.


In a related interview from another CEO, here’s Steve Wynn:

Wynn On Obama: “I’ll Be Damned If I Want To Have Him Lecture Me”

On the Tuesday broadcast of the nightly Nevada political program “Ralston Reports,” Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts sat down with host Jon Ralston to discuss the presidential election.

Wynn, an outspoken critic of President Obama, didn’t hold back in his latest criticism of the incumbent president seeking a second term.
