    House passes beer resolution

    Link

    By PATRICK GAVIN | 5/19/10 4:55 AM EDT
    While most of Washington was focused on Tuesday's election results, the House was busy doing something else: Passing a resolution about beer.

    House Resolution 1297, sponsored by Rep. Betsy Markey, supports "the goals and ideals of American Craft Beer Week."

    "We've got quite a number of microbreweries and entrepreneurs that are creating jobs, and we wanted to celebrate that this is a craft," Markey told POLITICO.

    "I think beer has been a tradition since this country was founded," said Markey. "We wanted to celebrate entrepreneurship — and good beer!"

    See, good looking politicians submitting important and highly worthwhile resolutions. That's the kind of politics I like to see.

    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I'd like to see Congress jump off a cliff. WTF is this crap all about? I mean I like beer as much as the next man. Especially microbrews, which are plentiful in Colorado. But come on, get back to work. The economy is still in the crapper, we're in Iraq still and Afghanistan still. Our debt is ballooning out of control. Let's get some real work done. We can worry about the little fuzzy **** later.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    They're the reason you can't have a beer until 21. To me if you can do the most adult things like sign a contract, join the military, vote, and the most dangerous of them all..........get married, I think you're adult enough to drink. Come to think of it.......if you get married at that age you're definitely gonna need a couple.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It seems that beer has been in politics for a long time:

    “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
    Ben Franklin

    About time the resolution was passed

    What angers me about the sentiment is that they tell our younger adults.... "Well, you can be compelled to service, you can lose money on a contract, or you can otherwise make your life miserable. But the best parts of being an adult are unattainable because we say so"
