    That's just stupid.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    It is a way to get people off bad things without outright banning it. . that is what we have done to cigarettes after all.

    Why don't we do that with alcohol?

    Cost of cigarettes has had little effect on smoking. A shift in public perception considering smoking bad, in moral and health sense and restrictions on where you can smoke are what has reduced the smoking rate.

    Because the last time we did something like that, it ultimately resulted in the 21st Amendment.

    We do. Like cigarettes, the bulk of the retail price of a bottle of liquor is various Federal and State taxes.

    I'm for banning the 512 oz. drinks. 64 seems so small by comparison.
