Why do we tolerate idiots in government like these;

"The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has banned taste contests for home-brewed beer, as well as home-brew club tasting nights. It has even barred people from taking home-brewed beer to a friend's home to drink. The bans are part of a reinterpretation of a state law that bars unlicensed brewers from brewing beer except for "home consumption." Because of the new ruling, the Oregon State Fair has canceled this year's beer and wine competitions. "

I'm sure Coors & InBev are very pleased to hear this. The less you know about tasty competitors, the better.

Corporate fascism WIN!
