    and stupid,

    I lived in a semi- dry county in Arkansas right out of college....by far the most repressive, idiotic laws EVER. They didn't allow alcohol to be sold on Thanksgiving in the grocery store! WTF!!! Why not on Thanksgiving? Freakin repressive idiots. If you do not want to drink, then don't...but don't push you stupid views on me.

    Easy to say that now, out of context of the time.

    This is the problem with judging the past with today's perspective.

    Don't act like you don't know what I'm saying.

    Trying to judge previous events with today's perspectives is blatantly distorted thinking. This isn't hard.

    That is EXACTLY what I was thinking when I couldn't buy beer on Thanksgiving or in a restaurant in this town in Arkansas...this isn't 1888, this is 1988....why haven't they progressed in thinking...but they were very "set in their ways" shall I put it....and I was not raised that way...I was raised to have critical thinking and question conventional wisdom...which was hard to come by in Arkansas.

    Perhaps you should review the local liquor/beer laws in Chicago & surrounding areas for Sundays. You might be surprised.

    Wife and I voted well over a week ago. Who for and how we voted is no one's business but our own.

      Sure. But....you know.....this IS a political forum where people exchange their opinions on politics. o_O

      I'm proud to say who I voted for and why. But that's just me.

        Indiana finally came out of the dark ages this year and allows Sunday alcohol purchases. Only breweries and wineries could actually sell before. Maybe in another 50 years they’ll do recreational marijuana
