Effort to cloak Utah liquor has eateries scrambling | The Salt Lake Tribune

Quote:
"Fears surrounding portions of the law were so acute that in March the state’s liquor-control commissioners took an unprecedented but unanimous step in asking Gov. Gary Herbert to veto the entire liquor package. He signed the legislation...

"...Said Commissioner Richard Sperry: “If licenses can be sold, it opens the potential for discrimination against small-business and mom-and-pop operations to be priced out of the market. And there could be pressure or undue influence on other small owners to sell."...

"...Our lawmakers have a penchant to monkey with things that aren’t broken,” said attorney Rick Golden, who has represented eateries applying for licenses. “What will happen is that people coming to Utah to open hotels or restaurants or to do business are going to think twice when they understand what the laws require of them. This is a horrible disservice to our state.”
i know a lot of utahns that laugh and roll their eyes at the idiotic legislations constantly enacted in places like san fransisco. but our super-intelligent representatives are doing the same stupid things, and all it is doing is hurting utahns and taking away opportunities and advantages.

Fanatical "moral" agendas have a way of transforming otherwise intelligent people of sound mind into dullards.

so about half way to tyranny?

just kidding. i personally believe that a certain level of social infrastructure has to be in place in government, but i'm not sure that the mob mentality the exists in government officials can handle any level of responsible, representative legislature.

Freedom does include responsibility. I would bet Utah has moved up closer to the top in the last few years. Considering that a very active and influential segment of Utahs GOP is supporting Ron Paul, that is a very telling sign.
