To be fair, alcohol is one of the shiattiest drugs, addictive and with numerous negative physiological effects.

Smoke some weed instead.

Don't like ethanol?

1) Don't imbibe.
2) Please shut up.

FTA For Wert, WCTU president since 2006, her involvement grew from a philosophical belief to a very personal conviction when her teenage son was hit head-on by a drunken driver. Her son survived, but a 4-year-old in the other vehicle did not.

Seems to be par for the course.

About 150 years older than that one, I'd say.

You know, the first time you try Scotch it tastes like paint thinner. The key is to not give up.

As someone who enjoys tasty scotch whisky, wine, beer, etc. and just got back from Glasgow and London (a massive drinking trip with some Olympic-watching mixed in), I say they can go fark themselves with a broken bottle.

Alcohol, like pretty much anything else, can be abused. If they want to promote practical means of reducing alcohol abuse, that's fine. If they choose not to imbibe, that's fine. If they think that Prohibition was a good thing and would love to see it again, fark 'em.

Prohibition did more to increase the consumption of alcohol than the wildest, wettest dream of an alcohol industry lobbyist could ever imagine.
Unfortunately, it also drove to quality down considerably. Which is why we now have Coors Lite.

Good luck with that. Because it worked out so well the last time?

"Given enough of a chance, Prohibition would be a good thing," she said

After all, we've been trying prohibition on drugs a hell of a lot longer than it lasted for alcohol, and that finally worked out, right guys?

No, but religion did make him go to church rather than stay at home playing video games that day.

Let's take a look and see how well the 70 year prohibition on weed has gone. No, wait, still not enough time, let's check back in 30 more years.

For as much as this place leans right on two wheels politically Omaha LOOOVES the booze. There are more bars than churches here. You can by the hard stuff right there in the grocery store next to the beer.

They are doing it all wrong, they need to get up with the politicians and tax the living shait out of alcohol like they do cigarettes. You see how well that worked.

Except these days, the list of evils threatening home and hearth has grown to include tobacco; marijuana and other illegal drugs; gambling; and pornography.

Shouldn't these activists be applauding the old-timey Prohibitionists for joining them in their modern Prohibitionism?

The Women's Christian Temperance Union? Sorry; if I don't get out this editorial in the New York Globe in support of the Isthmanian Canal Act, it'll never make the Extra edition. After that, I'm off to a rally for Theodore Roosevelt. I hear Elihu Root is going to speak!

Refrigeration is what caused pilsner to become the default beer. It was the hip new beer long before prohibition.
From Wiki "By the 1870s, breweries had become the largest users of commercial refrigeration units, though some still relied on harvested ice." and "The brewing traditions of England and the Netherlands (as brought to New York) ensured that colonial drinking would be dominated by beer rather than wine. Until the middle of the 19th century, British-style ales dominated American brewing. This changed when the lager styles, brought by German immigrants, turned out to be more profitable for large-scale manufacturing and shipping.[8] Lager was also preferred due to its longevity, while local ales of the time quickly turned sour and were a perceived risk to drink.[9]
The lager brewed by these companies was originally based on several different styles of central Europe, but the Pilsener style, using mild Czech hops, pale, lightly roasted 6-row barley and often adjuncts such as rice and corn, gradually won out.[10]"

They pretty much happened at the same time. Before the Prohibition amendment was signed there was a wartime prohibition and that rolled right into Prohibition.

"When Prohibition was in effect, there were big, big changes around the nation that resulted from alcohol being illegal"

Can't argue with that.
 
2012-08-05 02:58:01 PM
And yes, its members still must pledge abstinence from alcohol, standing united in their belief that "alcohol undermines the traditional values of family, thrift, social order and community prosperity."

So they are worried about these traditional values and their key target is not Republicans?

Actually you're wrong, the KKK supported them financially for years, the wctu just showed up at marches for prohibition which the KKK also supported. Basically when the klan died so did any partnership between the two.

The real question here is, why are women from the temperance movement out of the kitchen?

Before prohibition, there was not an organized crime problem in this country. Making alcohol, a product the majority wants, a contraband allowed the Mafia to rise to power. Organized crime remains a huge problem to this day. Thanks busy-bodied old hags! Now die in a fire.
