Anyone else watching this bullshit! I just wrote my congressman. God save me from my government trying to save me.

I emailed my Congresscritter, for all the good it will do. I'm sure he takes contributions from the wholesaler lobby.

What do you expect from a congressman from Hackachusetts!!!

I see one of the NH reps ( not my district ) is a co-sponsor too. He's running for an open Senate seat this fall so hopefully he'll just disappear. I expect the one from my district will join in too since they con't seemed to think for themselves.

"Of course the game is rigged. Don't let that stop you--if you don't play, you can't win."
- Robert Heinlein

Look, when it comes to hooch, the whole system is rigged against us. Those who are supposed to speak for us have a nice gig. They get exclusive rights to distribute the booze, they don't have to worry about competition, and the state makes sure that that whatever it skims, the distributors get a piece of the action. It's as perfect a storm as you can get.

If you think you can make a change by talking to your congressman, then you're living in a world of unicorns, rainbows and free sodomy.
