RUSH LIMBAUGH MOVES TO COSTA RICA, MOVES RIGHT BACK TO THE U.S.

imageSAN JOSÉ, Costa Rica (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – In 2010, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh promised that if Obamacare became law in the U.S., he would leave the country and move to Costa Rica in 5 years.

Well, it’s been 5 years and Obamacare is the law of the land, upheld not once, but twice by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Being the man of his word that he is, Limbaugh moved to Costa Rica on July 1st, only to come back to America in just two days.

The reason? Costa Rica has universal health care, and Limbaugh thinks that’s even worse than Obamacare.

“I guess I had a dose of my own medicine,” he said, “but I’m glad my medicine is covered by Obamacare.”

 

CALIFORNIANS BOYCOTT THE NEW YORK TIMES OVER PEAS IN GUACAMOLE

Guacamole with green peas? Eeeww!
Guacamole with green peas?  Hell no!

SAN FRANCISCO, California ( The Adobo Chronicles® ) – You’ve heard the phrase, “Don’t mess with Texas,” before. But Californians have just made one thing clear to The New York Times and to the world: “Don’t mess with Guacamole!”

California  avocado growers, taqueria owners, and guacamole fans criticized NYT for suggesting that people add English green peas to this  avocado classic.

A NYT article written by Melissa Clark  described the peas addition as “one of those radical moves that is also completely obvious after you taste it.”

Apparently, Californians disagree and have taken to social media to call for a boycott of NYT. In just the last 24 hours, the Times has seen a significant number of subscription cancellations for both its print and digital editions.

Even popular tortilla chip brands like Frito-Lay and Doritos have joined the chorus and are reportedly adding a warning to their label and packaging: “Not to be eaten with anything that has green peas in it.”

IS HUFFINGTON POST MORE CREDIBLE THAN HUFFINGTON POST?

imageHONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – A headline today reads, “Hawaii Becomes First State To Ban Plastic Bags.”  Yet, another headline from 2014 reads, “California Becomes First State to Ban Plastic Bags.” Both headlines are from The Huffington Post.

Perhaps Huffington Post Hawaii is not talking to Huffington Post U.S. Mainland?

We’ll let our readers decide on which is more credible: Huffington Post or Huffington Post.
