namatad: AlaskaState law allows each village to decide on restrictions, and some boroughs may prohibit it altogether.Three terms describing Alaskan Villages in common usage:A "Dry Village" bans both the sale and possession of alcohol.A "Wet Village" permits both the sale and possession of alcohol.A "Damp Village" permits possession of alcohol but bans the sale of it..HOW THE fark is possession illegal??SHEESHHHHHI hate these people.I am SOOOO going to get arrested in one of these dumb fark villages and then sue them blind.
eraser8: Alabama is a horrible place.It really is. I'm not joking.
Somacandra: There must be an exception for sacramental wine for both Catholics and Jews. There was in the Prohibition laws.
JackieRabbit: People are figuring out that all the tourist money is going to the wet counties.
The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: I think when the county bank accounts run dry they will have a revelation from Jeebus that liquor revenue ain't so bad.
suckerpunch: Why do you you always take take two Baptists fishing with you?Because if you only bring one, he'll drink all your beer./funny because it's true//I know it's true because of the scowl my Baptist aunt made when I told her that joke
edmo: That pretty well capture a lot about "family values." Talk a good story, do what you want, condemn others who do what they want.
Memes Ate My Balls: Roadtrip! We passed through a family values area on Sunday. We were a family but we had no values. "Why are you buying alcohol on the Lord's day," the shopkeeper asked my Uncle. "Why are you selling it," he replied.
Demetrius: eraser8: Alabama is a horrible place.It really is. I'm not joking.I just set foot in Alabama for the first time in my life today. First thing I saw coming through the clouds were a couple of huge churches. I got to thinking that damn, I'm a Yankee, a heathen, and by their terms at least, a librul. I'm pretty much not going to talk down here.To be fair, I haven't heard "Y'all are from around here, are ya?" or "Roll Tide!" yet. But I've only seen family. I've got a full day down here tomorrow before I have to go to a funeral on Tuesday. Right now I'm in the hotel, and there are no less than 15 different religious channels on the TV. I did manage to get beer tonight though.Sure, the cost of living might be cheaper around here, but other than that I haven't seen a single compelling reason to spend any time here.
IamAwake: Robots are Strong: They make love standing up so the lord thinks they're dancing.Apparently you don't know that dancing is against the rules. In fact, most southern baptists would likely say it's worse than an occasional tiny drink of alcohol, if you pressed them and reminded them that Jesus drank.
wildcardjack: I moved to Tyler, Tx for college and in one month there were three drunk driver incidents because people had to drive on 70mph roads in order to get to the county line liquor stores. If the county had been wet then they could have gone to a street corner.I think it's the stores outside the county that spend the most on keeping a county dry.
zamboni: Man... there must be a lot of Baptists in that county!
Robots are Strong: They make love standing up so the lord thinks they're dancing.
PanicMan: eraser8: Alabama is a horrible place.It really is. I'm not joking.Yeah, I wish I could find some saving grace about Alabama, but there really isn't any. Huntsville is mostly tolerable. That's about it.
atomic-age: Somacandra: There must be an exception for sacramental wine for both Catholics and Jews. There was in the Prohibition laws.It's Clay County, AL. I'd be shocked if anyone is anything aside from about four flavors of Baptist./From Alabama//Never moving back.
BitwiseShift: Usually drinkers are more discrete in dry counties. Most days. Same thing for marijuana smokers -- more discrete in places that frown on marijuana. Serial killers really have the hardest time.
L.D. Ablo: Why, that is a traditional Republican value.Publicly condemn something and then secretly enjoy it.Just like their sex, government spending and how they pretend to be Christians while never reading the Bible.
doyner: Alabama has nothing on Arkansas in this regard.
revrendjim: I lived in a dry county in west Texas. You knew you reached the county line when there was a liquor store next to the highway in the middle of nowhere.
