    Texas is funny, sell it all any in grocery stores but all the way down to the town level can vote to be dry.

    Took quite a drive to get Burkburnett Texas 'wet'. Even though the entire county was wet, the Church Leaders predicted Sodom on the Red River if the tiny town opened a liquor store. Still waiting for the first sign of pillars of salt.
    Might just be Harris county then, because liquor is only sold in liquor stores, but you can get wine and beer almost anywhere, and you're ****ed if you empty your bottle saturday night. No bars open, and no sale of liquor. It's ****ing gay.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    When I was in college, a friend and I went around asking people to sign a petition against signing petitions.

    I agree. Without research, I can only assume the presence of dry counties and variations in laws are left over from prohibition. Just ridiculous. I think Utah drinking laws were the biggest farce. I understand the membership fee was removed in 2009, but how dumb were the "let's pretend" law they had til then.

    Utah has to be the worst. I also think it makes no sense at all that people can make their own beer, but get caught operating a still without a license, and off to prison you go. Some guy in NC got 2 and a half years for it in 2010. It's ridiculous.

    I can see the difference and agree with it. Beer and wine are both natural processes that can and do occur without man. Admittedly, it takes man's intervention to make good beer or wine but that's a technicality.

    I file administrative complaints.

    I do not sign petitions unless I am giving something for my signature like a cookie or a cup of joe if I am in the mood for a break.
