can't see youtube from work, but that must be the "dem beers drank pretty good don't dey?"

at least alabama popped their cap and are now seeing some decent beer. mississippi is still not to the point of getting a motion to the floor.

You are correct. I'm happy to hear that it passed in the House, but boy were those arguments horrible and completely invalid.

The bill did pass this past Spring, which of course points out that the majority of folks ultimately supported the sale of high gravity beers in Alabama.

There are loopy folks everywhere. Unfortunately, there are a number of them in our legislature.

Yes, I've been talking about this with some friends this morning and they corrected me that the video is a little old and the bill did pass.

iirc, it's not very old, like just last session.

i wish mississippi could do whatever alabama did. i'm a "raise your pints" "lifetime" member and i don't get any correspondence from them and have no idea what's going on with any legislation over here.

At least they had a discussion and a vote. Mississippi hasn't even brought it up.

A NY'er criticizing other states governments?

Meanwhile we are being held hostage by special intersts that won't allow us to buy a bottle of wine at the grocery store. Not to mention being the highest taxed state in the country. Not to mention....
