• Damn those liberal Democrats and their paternalistic regulatory state!

    Oops, my bad. The Arizona state government is a Republican-dominated institution. And Republicans are split between those who favor only paternalistic regulations (such as liquor control), those who favor in-state business interests (such as the liquor industry middlemen), and libertarians (few in number and without much influence, it seems).

    There is no party for a libertarian in the US. Just as there is no party for those who support more government supports economically and less government intervention socially.

  • Sue the State under 42 USC 1983 for an injunction under GRANHOLM v. HEALD https://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/03-1116.ZS.html

    Although the revenue from this scam will far outweigh the attorneys’ fees that the Arizona will have to pay.

  • Just goes to show you, it’s not the letter beside the name (R) or (D). They’re all the same when it gets down to it.

    • Except they’re NOT all the same. It’s just that you can’t look at the letter and think you’re done.

  • The Arizona government was probably appalled to discover that anyone in the state drinks wine rather than tequila.
