Hrm...

This is part of why I brew my own. ;)

A little more expensive, but tastes great.

Which reminds me...

The latest batch will be done this weekend...

*wanders off pondering how to make the weekend come quicker* ;) ;)

This story reminds me of a Married with Children episode. Snooty wine drinkers like Marcy and Jefferson supported the passage of a tax against beer, because that represented the lower classes who should be taxed. Al led a revolt of beer-swilling morons against this tax, and they sacked the city.

(It helped that typical beer-drinkers such as the Bundys don't vote.)

Am I missing something? They are passing a bill specifically to delete a tax on beer? WHAAAAAAA! What about us wine drinkers?

I swear all of this begins to sound like something from the Twilight Zone, especially when you throw the CA mess in to the mix.

Isn't beer one of the major food groups?

I think it is for, Homer Simpson and Norm Petterson. :lol:
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.

I drink beer and I vote. :)

I'm really on the fence about "sin taxes" but I don't think I'll go out and protest this or anything.  Heh. Heh.   :p
