The bums wasted half a day arguing over another bill that everyone knows isn't going to pass.

I like the comment that it would be a bad influence on kids in the homes were beer/wine were made. I am of the opinion that if we educate our children about the proper use of alcohol they won't be so inclined to start drinking at a young age. I knew where all of the alcohol was in my parents house and never had a desire to touch it. My mom even told me, "If you want to try something let us know and we'll give it to you here. Where you are safe and there's no need to have to drive afterwards".

Congrats Alabama. One step closer.

I listened to the afternoon session. It was pretty frustrating but was typical politics.

There were enough reps that were going to vote for the bill to pass it, but the antis tried to filibuster buy presenting stupid amendments. McCutcheon would ask if they would vote for the bill if the amendment was passed, they would say no. Amendment would be tabled and voted on. This happened three times before the bill finally went to vote and was passed.

We were painted as alcoholics, child abusers, and overall bad people.

If you have some time, go to the Alabam Vote thread, there is a running commentary...

There are some real dumbasses in the Alabama house...

I wonder why they think that crappy beer and cheap booze would be a better influence on the kids. If it's about alcohol, it's cheaper and much easier to get some without brewing it yourself. Also, does anyone think there will be a lot more home brewing when it is legal?

Absolutely. There are likely to be a LOT more simply due to the fact that a lot of people won't do something illegal to being with.

Then add in the fact that people will be able to safely advertise their hobby with others without risk of prosecution.
