The Lesson of Afghanistan
John and Andy’s comments here.
Phil Kerpen: “A sensible infrastructure policy would look to broadband as a model to bring more private management and investment into other types of infrastructure. The Biden administration is doing precisely the opposite— massively funding a government takeover of broadband…. Now states are sitting on $350 billion of so-called COVID relief funding. They will be tempted to again spend it in on government-owned networks in vote-rich areas rather than reaching sparsely populated areas without broadband, or figuring out why some low-income consumers don’t subscribe to even cut-rate or free Internet plans. And Congress looks poised to add yet another pot of broadband money in the pending infrastructure bill….All of this gets infrastructure exactly backwards. Congress should repeal the restrictions on the $350 billion they have already sent states that ban it from being used for roads and bridges, and target broadband spending narrowly to the few remaining truly unserved.”

Bourbon Bacon Jam
- 1 bag of Southern Recipe Pork Rinds
- 1-1/2 pounds of bacon
- 2 cups of shallots, finely chopped
- 1 cup Vidalia onion or any sweet onion, finely chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- Fry the bacon in two frying pans to allow for room for it to crisp up properly. Cook over medium heat until it browns perfectly. You want the bacon a little crisper with as little visible fat as possible. Transfer to paper towels to drain excess fat.
- Leave about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the fat in one of the pans. Add shallot and onion to the pan, cook over medium heat until caramelized. Add the garlic and cook for two minutes.
- Add the chili powder and smoked paprika, stir to combine.
- Increase heat to high and add the bourbon (carefully) and maple syrup. Bring to a boil, stir and scrape the pan so all the bacon bits come loose. Continue boiling for 3 minutes.
- Add vinegar and brown sugar, continue to boil for 4 minutes.
- Using a sharp knife cut the bacon into small pieces. You can also tear it by hand so it looks more rustic.
- Toss the bacon into the pan, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes – stirring as the mixture thickens and begins to look like jam.
- Serve with Southern Recipe pork rinds, over warm bread, or transfer to jars and store in the fridge.
