Does he really think people don’t drink on Sunday’s because of this law?I’m sure people stock up on Sat. if they want alcohol.I was raised in a ‘drink is evil’ baptist house.I’m now Catholic.We have our faults,but,temperance isn’t one of them.
For me, the problem isn’t whether it’s appropriate for government to ban or restrict alcohol. The issue is why we give them the power to control any activity when that activity is practiced responsibly and does not injure others. In other words, government juridiction over those activities should be limited only to cases where there is an idenifiable involuntary injured party.
Then we can start paying down the debt with all the money we’ll no longer be paying to ATF, DEA, and other vice cops.
Using Vodka as rubbing alcohol is nothing new. We do not keep isopropyl in the house as it is toxic. If the kids get into the Vodka, they have a better chance of no harm than getting into the isopropyl.
I resided in Georgia for six years while in the military. Found out they banned sales on alchohol on Sunday when I was throwing a Easter bash at my house. Ended up driving the 15 miles to post to get more alkyhol.
The county I reside in now in Wisconsin prohibits the sale of liquor after 9 PM and at least one town prohibits the sale of all alcohol after 9 PM. Bars are still serving though.
Warning on one of those tips: alcohol, of any type, will clean glasses very effectively, as the article stated. However, it works so effectively that it will also take off (in patches) the protective coatings that we pay the optometrist an extra hundred dollars or whatever to keep off the glare, etc.
