I think it's because of the increased BATFE presence here. I believe one estimate put the figures at about 1 agent per 65 normal users last year, but it's been stepped up to 1 per 40 or so recently. Don't ask me why. Probably has something to do with the GWOT.

Really? The "revnewers" lurk us? Hmmm....never thought about it before...Between the CIA lurking (and editing) Wikipedia, the FBI lurking Myspace for pedophiles, it's amazing any actual crime get's fought....

I wonder how many college dorms get raided after we tell the kiddies that distilling is illegal and we won't discuss how to do it with them?

What's GWOT?

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

no more likely the loss of tax dollars. IRS will spend 3 million dollars trying to extract 2500.

GWOT = Global War on Terror...George W. Obnoxious Twit

Another rip off of American taxpayer dollars...like the War on Drugs, the War on Obesity, the War against civil liberties and common sense...

It's pretty ironic since this country was founded by terrorist and traitors...
