    Exhibit A right here.

    Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary voters and Republicans still believe the myth. The myth is destroying Kansas and Paul Ryan is working hard to bring it to the entire Country.

    Re: The States. It's 10th Amendment or bust!

    Minnesota will allow Sunday liquor sales starting in July. Imagine that, the Super Bowl coming in 12 months, and Sunday liquor sales in 5 months. Coincidence?

    http://www.startribune.com/mn-senate...s/414885874/#1

    The state Senate voted Monday to let Minnesota liquor stores open on Sundays, giving opponents of a Sunday sales ban the victory they need to finally undo a 159-year-old, increasingly unpopular state law.

    "We've been hearing loud and clear from our constituents that it's time to get this done," said Sen. Jeremy Miller, R-Winona, chief author of the measure, which passed 38-28. "Today we have an opportunity to show Minnesota we're with the people."

    Differences between the Senate measure and a companion bill the House passed last week mean a few more steps in the legislative process before supporters can celebrate with the cocktail of their choice. But the Senate was seen as the steepest climb for the ban's opponents, and Gov. Mark Dayton's promise to let the repeal become law means liquor stores in the state are likely to be able to start featuring Sunday hours come July.

    It's been coming for years. It's like a HOF vote in baseball. Eventually going to get to 75% with a lot of them, but this wasn't a first-ballot bill.

    Yes, it was inevitable. It just strikes me as odd that repealing the ban of Sunday sales comes just before we're set to host the Super Bowl.

    It would have passed with or without (not that you're saying it wouldn't have).

    Remember that Iowa senator who proposed forcing all Iowa professors to state whether they were Democrat or Republican and capping the amount of each that could be hired, because of his experience with "liberal professors"?

    Turns out he got his degree from a Sizzler.

    Once beer makers figured out how to start charging $20 for a bottle of beer and the law became a mild annoyance to affluent white people, it was all over but the shouting.

    It really shouldn't surprise me, but...

    "Used in cooking" is a silly argument. 'Cooking' jello shots, probably. Or maybe for the big finish when they clean the hibachi at your local Japanese-style steak joint.

    The fact that it's easily obtainable elsewhere is why they caved.

    It was only about a year or two ago that Connecticut allowed Sunday sales. Most people surmised at the time that it was a budget move by the state government, they are looking to tax anything and everything they can think of these days.

    From the store owners I've talked to, expanding hours did nothing to expand total sales, it merely spread existing sales out over more hours.




    Totally unrelated to liquor sales, I just found out that if a person owns real property in Connecticut and then dies, the estate of the deceased cannot sell the property until after the state estate tax return has been filed: apparently the state has a lien on property of deceased people that must be released first, before a sale can take place, and that the fee to release the lien is 0.35% of the property value, even if no estate tax is due. I did not research this claim to verify it or not.

    I remember when NYS did it. It was especially interesting with "border towns", where people were so desperate for Sunday morning drinkie that they'd shuffle over to Vermont.

    During football season, that's what a lot of Minnesotans will do who don't know how to plan for their misadventures. All of our largest population centers are within an hour's drive of one state or another.

    Sunday liquor sales won't do much for revenue for liquor sales, but there will be some impact. Conversely, I'd expect sales tax revenues from bars to take a little bit of a dip.

    The impact will be felt most by liquor store owners whose profits will take a hit. The whoa-is-me news columns have been printing for a few weeks now, hit their zenith when vote took place in the state legislature.
