Hair of the dog~Christmas approaches Washington at great haste and Bea stops by the studios to have a quick chat~principally about temperance during the Season~


 Miss Bea was by to tea today~~but she was not a happy puppy guest~


OK, Bea~~what’s your beef?

I was reading your article on Mandela while I was kept waiting in the lobby~

I see~~how did you find it?

The lobby?

The article on Mandela~~

Boring, yet, somehow dull~~and unspeakably long~

Thank you~~

Of course, it’s not my cup of tea~~politics and all that you know~~

Of course not~~

As for your tea~~how goes the war effort~~

Mr. Begg~~bringing Christian Temperance to the Americans is not a war~~


It’s a noble experiment~~

Didn’t we already have one of them~

We did~~in the ’20s~

And now you’re ready for another~

The need never went away~~it went underground~~

So I understand~~I saw your Christmas speech on the You Tube~~very inspiring~~

It is a very serious topic, Mr. Begg~~alcoholism destroys more people and families that any other single thing on this earth~

You also took on football~~that won’t win you many American votes~~

American football exists to promote the gambling and alcoholism industries~~


If one were to remove the incessant alcoholism adverts and the blatant gambling from football~~nobody would watch it~~it is a fundamentally boring game~~

I see~~

You say that you see but I can tell that you don’t~

You see football is a mass advert for alcoholism~~and illicit gambling~~that’s why it exists

Oh~~I didn’t know?

Look at the adverts~~unspeakably dull adverts for gray cars~~why are all cars gray today~~and booze~~those are the only sponsors of American football on tele-vision~~


Well~~I am told these cars are marketed as being silver but they are gray to me~~dull gray~

There may be something to that~~the gray car business~~

Oh, there is something to that but the gray cars, while dull, don’t disturb me~~it’s all the drunk Americans swilling beer all day Sunday~~the Lord’s day~~and then getting into these dull grey cars and driving home~~that’s the nightmare~~

So~~Bea~~you are an advocate for stronger drink drive laws then~~

No~~I am an advocate for no drinking laws–NO drinking~

Is that an attainable end?

Is that how you access an argument, Mr. Begg~~whether or no its objective is politically attainable?~~

Well, no, no not precisely~~

Not precisely~~

It seems down to your tilting at windmills to me, dear Bea~~isn’t it down to that?~~your tilting at windmills~~

It is a hard and difficult path but it is the right and true path~~drink is a terrible social ill~~

I see~~but what about the Prohibition?

You mean the era that made all your dago rum running relatives rich~~

Hold on now~~

Well~~just where did they get all that money~~

Investments, I think~~

Investments in liquor and beer~~

I wasn’t around~~I don’t know~~

I do you~~you greasy wops used our noble experiment to get rich~~

Is that all bad~~

I guess not for you~~

Bea~~do you realistically expect to ban drinking~~we cannot even control illegal drugs~~

There is no difference~~


There is no difference between drink and drugs~


In fact~~drink is the most abused drug in the world~~always has been~~more than all the other drugs combined~~you know put together~

Yes, combined~~all put together~~

Yes, worse than all combined~~

But what can be done?  People are going to drink, ya know?

I do know~~but we must stop it~NOW~~

Bea~~relax, it’s Christmas~~enjoy your tea by the fireplace~~

I cannot enjoy my tea by the fireplace at Christmas when there are drunks all over the place using the Lord’s Birthday Celebration to tie one on~~

So, I guess all the beer and liquor adverts to please drink responsibly don’t fool you~~

Not for a  minute~~the alcoholism industry  wants you drinking day and night~~drunk dawn to dusk~~

I see~

I understand it’s a business~~and as with any business~~the booze merchants want you to consume as much as possible of what they make~

So~~in that sense it’s like selling soup?

Soup? Soup?~~You are even dumber than I had read about, Begg~~I’m surprised you aren’t a blonde~~


Well, I get temperamental when people don’t listen and learn how dangerous drinking is~~

I see~~

To me~~it’s my life’s crusade~~ban the bottle~~

Bea’s crusade~~a Holy War against the bottle~~

Precisely so, Sir~~

I thank you for your time today, Miss Bea~~Merry Christmas~~

Cheers to you, Mr. Begg~~

What an odd goodbye from a Temperanceite~~that’s a toast–is this a toasting occasion?

It’s Christmas~~

I see~~let’s raise a glass then, Miss Bea~~

Here’s mud in your eye, Begg~~

And looking at you kid~~




The rich man ought not be taxed~~he ought be compelled to employ the poor man~~


~~The principal need in America today is~~financial and industrial De-Globalization~~to facilitate the promotion of the possibility for the average man to get and keep a good job with good benefits paid by the employer~~as was done not very long ago.~~


~~Bene Nati, Bene Vestiti, Et Mediocriter Docti~~

~~La crema y nata~~

~~Artista de la conquista~~




~~In sunshine and in shadow~~I hold tight to the Republican view of time and money~~I write night and day~~yet~~while impecunious~~I am vastly overpaid~~in that taking pay to do what I love is unfair~~to my employer~~in a fair system~~under such circumstances~~I should pay him~~not he me~~I am far, far too old a man to be sexually confused~~praise Jesus~~but I am yet young enough to be politically confused~~is anyone not~~in an absolute sense~~I am a Catholic Royalist~~in a practical sense~~I am a Classical Liberal~~a Gaullist~~a Bonapartist~~an American Nationalist  Republican~~in either sense~~my head is soon for the chopping block~~to hasten my interlude with Madame La Guillotine~~I write without fear~and without favor of~any man~~ 

Non Sibi~~Finis Origine Pendet~~
 ~~Κύριε ἐλέησον~~

Rejoice and Glad!!

"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~
French actor~~Alain Delon
