Since this is the local Arkansas forum, it is, indeed logical and relevant, since you posted in this forum.

Ya think?

In Texas when we first moved there you had to have that little card (it costs about $3 a year) in order to buy liqouor. We still have to belong to "the club" here in some areas but there is no charge. You just sign the book and you belong. It is really a joke. As for buying is the grocery store, it can only be sold here in the grocery store if there is a special entrance and exit. Of course when we lived in Va grocery stores could not sell any alcohol.

Should constructive criticism not be allowed? Must negative information always be swept under the rug, never to be discussed? Problems are to be ignored and allowed to fester?

And again, so what that this stupid policy isn't unique to Arkansas? That is not a logical line of argument.




"but I bet that border state liquor store owners pump money into the opposition efforts, too."

I find this particular policy quite disagreeable, and how it wastes people's time, energy, and gasoline. But unhappy? No, I am not such a delicate flower.





"but I bet that border state liquor store owners pump money into the opposition efforts, too."

You'e be correct. It did not happen locally, I believe, but another part of the state. Missouri liquor stores hid behind a front group in an attempt to prevent a county from going wet. I can't find a link at the moment, but it was a rather sad and pathetic story.
What is your point and why did you suddenly decide to bring the subjec tup period?

It is hard for me to understand why you care or why you bother to comment on our laws.

I can't vote here, so there's that too. I'm sure the man saw me as some sort of Seattle-based, godless barbarian.
why are you using the word "here" instead of "there"? You don't live here, you have said that already.

My opinion--They had blue laws in Colo. up until last year. I grew up in Ark. and Co. Personally, I liked having a day/ week liquor wasn't sold. It represented in a small way respect; taking a break. Sad to see them go. And for everyone who wanted liquor, you knew you had to get it on Saturdays. You didn't hear people complain about it. It was like the mail doesn't come on Sundays, so you allow for that when mailing bills and such. We have so little respect in our society for anything these days. That was my experience anyway-

you mean in the city there? because that's not the case in Little Rock, and it's the first I've heard of it.

LOL... Why can't I buy any beer/liquor/wine in my county (Benton)? This "dry county" concept never made any sense to me at all. Oh well... I guess Missouri welcomes my money with open arms.
