Celebrate In Style

Eighty six years ago, December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the Constitution was ratified. This repealed the 18th Amendment, putting an end to prohibition.

Enjoy.

18th Amendment: Even more stupid than the current "war" on drugs.

It's the 19th that needs repealing.

Fixed that for you.

Bull Moose Rough Rider 3 Barrel Rye. Very nice flavor and very smooth at 92 proof. $25 a bottle in Woodstock at Lucky's. Same cost as regular Redemption Rye (which I love), but a pleasant flavor profile as well. Unlike any Rye I've tried before, but I like it!

Distilled and aged on Long Island.

The cost of prohibition was far higher than expected.

We really need to modify the 27th to say that the voters should determine legislators salary. IMO, most of the bozos currently serving in Congress are worth exactly $0.
