    “We were conveniently not told that Obama had authorized $3.7 million U.S. tax dollars to be used at the Wuhan Institute of Virology to utilize corona viruses in bats in 2015 — but that’s yet another deception of omission”

    Don’t worry – the South African government did it this time. Along with banning cigarettes (huh?). Apparently in the next down stage there will be SOME businesses allowed to open, but also a curfew is to be placed from 8 pm to 5 am – apparently the Covid virus is a night-crawler! The police minister (a tee-totaller) says that he would like the alcohol ban to be permanent, and is ignoring the illegal brews that are starting up, the ram-raids on liquor stores, and the rise of the organised Cape gangs (who may well be moving from drugs into booze).
    Oh, and also the ‘health’ minister would like anyone over 60 to be confined to their homes and never leave (except, I assume, feet first!).

    Washington State was one of the 33 states that had adopted Prohibition laws before the 18th Amendment was ratified in 1919.
    WA history and prohibition
    On November 3, 1914, after prodigious Anti-Saloon League lobbying efforts statewide, Washington voters approved Initiative Measure Number Three, prohibiting the manufacture and sale (although not the consumption) of liquor statewide.
    The “not consumption” clause allowed the manufacture of limited beer and wine at home.

    it actually stimulated a demand for wine grapes. Grapes were shipped (mostly from California) with small blocks of yeast, printed with what I will call reverse instructions – how not to make wine.
    Don’t do this.

    After dissolving the brick (yeast) in a gallon of water, do not place the liquid in a jug away in the cupboard for twenty days, because then it would turn into wine.

    And then the Mafia took over.

    Oh dear! I can feel another beer attack coming on!

    Progressives gave us prohibition, eugenics, segregation, WWI, and the federal income tax. All of this by 1920…

    This is why the 2nd Amendment is so very vital.
