The Most Unbelievable Story Ever

By Wyatt Earp | November 16, 2009

Billy Beer

Guess what the government is spending your hard-earned money on now?

PLAINS, Ga. — A U.S. taxpayers group is objecting to giving national park status to a gas station once owned by Billy Carter, the brother of former President Jimmy Carter.

The U.S. House approved a measure last month to incorporate the service station in Plains, Ga., under the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday. That brings the service station under the auspices of the National Park Service.

Upgrades to the gas station and a state-run welcome center will cost an estimated $17 million, the Congressional Budget Office estimates. (H/TUPI)

I have to echo RT’s statement. I wonder if they’ll have Billy Beer on tap?

    I’d have to be drinking some nasty swill to go there. How insanely stupid. What’s next? Sending Roger Clinton’s coke straw to the Smithsonian?

    $17 million for a gas station owned by the brother of an ex president. Are you freaking kidding me. Next it will be the barn where George Washington’s horse was gelded or the trailer where Bill Clinton was conceived.

    We need a Mars Attacks type event on the executive and legislative branch.

    Well, at least Billy was about the only person with a lick of sense in the whole Carter family.

    Once upon a time, I thought Billy Carter was a dunce. I have since come to realize that he was actually the smarter of the two Carter brothers.

    Things like this make me want to get a carry permit. Just a little something to make these idiots pause and think for one small minute. Is there not one SANE person left in politics. (yep, oxymoron, I know.)

    Did anyone out there drink that Horse Piss he call the best? Hot Carling Black label in a rusty can in Vietnam was better. This makes no sense but to another Democrat. MUD

    RT – Funniest comment of the day!

    LDIV – Insanity at its finest.

    Ingineer66 – Independence Day. Aliens blow up the Capitol.

    tjbbpgobIII – True enough.

    John D – And how scary is that???

    MeToo – There are a few, but they’re rare.

    MUD – But in Vietnam, Black label probably tasted like Guinness!

    Somehow I think Billy was ashamed of his brother and that’s why he tasted a lot of beer…

    Yeah, MUD. I drank that piss–but in the 70s, I drank damn near anything.
    And yes, It’s become abundantly clear that Billy wasn’t the idiot in the family.
    Now, what am I bid for that coke straw? Do I hear two kilos?

    the stimulus money is just a huge bank account marked “Democratic slush fund.” Im not suprised at this.

    British Bird…and it also calls out to them in their dreams, “Spend me!” “Spend me!”
