All for the benevolent purpose of discouraging binge drinking. How nice.

We got a 400% increase in Anchorage a while back. To help curb the natives from drinking too much. Yea that really worked well

Nothing to see here, citizen. The government knows what is best for the collective.

Wait, what?

Makes one think of these quotes

The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. [H.L. Mencken]


The only good bureaucrat is one with a pistol at his head. Put it in his hand and it's good-by to the Bill of Rights. [H.L. Mencken]

"In general the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one class of citizens to give to the other." [Voltaire]

A number of years ago some college student over indulged, walked into the river and drowned. In response the government said that I can not buy a drink in a bar for less than $2.50. I now feel very confident that I'm properly protected against wandering into the river when I go out for a beer and damned grateful for it!
