"Liquor sales are not good for the people," Henderson said. "It leads to higher crime, violence, DUIs, and alcohol related deaths."
Amen, Brother Henderson. Liquor bottles keep running around robbing banks and wrecking cars. Obviously, individua...posted on October 21, 2010
Here's a quick thought...: The folks in favor of alcohol prohibition in Hartselle keep talking about how local alcohol sales won't boost the economy a bit along with describing the moral decay which will fall upon us if we go wet. However, a lot of nearby cities are wet. If going w...posted on October 23, 2012
alcohol "does nothing but cause corruption": That's what one lady said on TV, at least. As I'm sure that most of you can think of at least one additional thing alcohol does, I won't belabor the point. It does illustrate the frame of mind of the abolitionistas, though. Incapable of much more than p...posted on September 22, 2012
If DUIs kill, why do the churches want us to vote dry?: One of the more interesting tacticsof Hartselle's Vote No crowd has been the "wreck simulations" they've used during this and their previous campaign.

To date, the Vote No crowd has chickened out of every debate opportunity offered that I know of, but here's what Bob Francis of the Hartselle Citizens for Eco...posted on October 22, 2012
Upcoming Hartselle Prohibition Vote Discussion: The other day, I mentioned that the leaders of Hartselle's alcohol prohibition movement are chickening out of debate invitations. While their representative did appear on the cable community channel program (I missed it, but will watch it on DVR as soon a...posted on October 25, 2012
Happy Days Are Here Again?:
If there is one person in American political history despised more by libertarians than Franklin Roosevelt, I'm not sure who it would be. Mark Thornton provides a libertarian case for FDR's popularity: the end of prohibition.
But what if a president ...posted on October 27, 2010
