Happy Repeal Day
Happy Repeal Day!! It was this day in 1933 that that horrible social experiment known as Prohibition ended with the ratification of the 21st Amendment. It's very important we recognize and pay attention to this day. Why? Because there are still groups out there who want to take your constitutional right to enjoy a beer or any other alcoholic beverage away from you.
Increased taxes on alcohol. Limiting alcohol content of drinks. Prohibiting or censoring alcohol advertising. These are just a few things that the neo-prohibitionists are doing to take away our rights. Did you know that there is still a Prohibition Party? Yup and it's scary. Even MADD has detoured from its original goal of reducing drunk driving fatalities and has been taken over by neo-prohibitionists who want nothing better but to take that alcohol right out of your hands. I'll give you my beer when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.
Enough with the diatribe. It's December 5th. Get up and go to your local bottle shop, brewery or pub and BUY A BEER!!!! It's important.
