I can see this is going to turn ugly real soon...where's the popcorn?

BTW...beer and guns do not go together.

I cannot relate, I live in Oregon which, is not only a beautiful state, but pretty relaxed on home brewing. Also, I can't think of a better state as far as micro breweries.

Illinois is the worst I would say

2nd worst economy in the nation

At one point we had 2 governors in the federal prison system at the same time.

"temporary" income tax hike

Corrupt politicians who have been in power for forever

Major city that has the rest of the state by the balls

Crappy gun laws

Crap medical MJ law

Don't forget

one of the highest gas taxes in the US and overall some of the $hi77iest roads to drive on.

A new corporate tax structure that is driving corporations out of the state.

A mountain of unpaid bills, and one of the least funded pension systems.

7 governors and numerous congressmen in prison or have gone to prison. JJJ's daddy will probably keep him out.

I think we all need to realize that we live in the greatest country on Earth. We argue about gun laws, politics etc but what about poverty stricken countries that don't even have clean drinking water....yet we take that for granted every time we brew a batch of beer.

...but beer is credited with making crappy drinking water drinkable. We should start air dropping dry yeast, hops and ME for those poor countries.

Maybe if they brewed beer with that water, they could drink it.

Haha true, but I'm sure their #1 focus isn't cultivating hops
