Up for Debate: Wine bill killed

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 at 10:52pm

Do you think Tuesday's House committee vote that likely killed the wine-in-grocery-stores bill for this session was more a reflection of the voters and General Assembly at large, or of the influence of lobbyists?

brrrrk - In HS, the group of girls I ran with, used to just hang around at times to see who we could see at the bootleggers. Small town, not much to do. One that was a regular, was a preacher where some of us went to Church.

brrrrk, that IS an "ah-ha" moment!

Do you know why you always take 2 Baptists with you when you go fishing and not just 1? If you only take 1 he'll drink all your beer.

Blanket that is 2 ah-ha moments! That covers the Mormons & Baptist & my report on the bootlegger, covers the Church of Christ.

LOL, bfra. Do the Penticostals drink or do they just handle snakes? I forget.

I suspect that if you drink enough you'll handle anything....

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 12:34

HA! That's great, brrrrk!

By: bfra on 3/13/13 at 12:52

brrrrk - It would take an awful lot to make me handle snakes.............

By: bfra on 3/13/13 at 12:53

Blanket - Don't think I have ever heard one way or the other on Penticostals.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 1:04

I googled it. They (supposedly) don't drink. Catholics are much more fun. Right now they have a bunch of old guys in dresses locked in a room blowing out smoke.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 1:43

A new pope has been elected! I wonder who it is?

By: budlight on 3/13/13 at 1:44

OK, no winos can whino. Oh well. Guess people can't shop for wine and groceries at the same time. Two trips. Personally I think it's OK the way it is, but I don't drink, so I don't need to vote on it. Sorry for you all who wanted it to pass. Maybe next time.

My weewee just made water.

This is like "Last Cardinal Standing"!

By: dargent7 on 3/13/13 at 2:02

And...there's the 'Guns in Bars", that passed. Employee Parking Lots, Parks & Recreation.
Any of those on a Lobbyist's payroll?
Of course. Sanity would dictate that wine be sold in groceries.
Since it's not, it's favored by some group with a different agenda.

By: bfra on 3/13/13 at 2:07

Blanket - That "announcement momentarily" caption has been on for over 1 hr.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 2:08

Have you ever known the Vatican to be in a hurry about anything? LOL

BN2 is our Lois Lane...she broke the story:
White smoke is "billowing" from the Sisten Chapel.
And, Cheech & Chong haven't been sited anywhere near the place.
I bet it's Dolan....3:4 odds.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 2:11

Just because Cheech & Chong haven't been sited doesn't mean they are not there. I mean, old men in red dresses look all the same, right?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 2:12

I'd be surprised if it's Dolan.

The BBC’s “Exposé” of Prescott Bush and
Wall Street’s Attempted Fascist Coup of FDR in 1934

I guess the Replicans won't like to acknowledge this or the implication of his son and grandson becoming presidents.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 2:28

And the new pope is: Argentina's Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

Wait.... couldn't they just be smoking ribs?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 2:38

Well, the new pope is from Argentina so that is possible.....

By: bfra on 3/13/13 at 2:38

Glad it wasn't Austria's Schoenborn because his Mother said she would never get to see him again.

By: bfra on 3/13/13 at 2:40

brrrrk - With all the problems they gave had, maybe it was peace pipes.

By: bfra on 3/13/13 at 2:51

s/h/b - they have had

By: dargent7 on 3/13/13 at 2:59

Speaking of the Bush's...Jeb Bush, yesterday called NBC's David Gregory and the gaggle of news reporters, "Crack addicts",...because they wanted to report the political news.
I think we can safely say this 3rd in a succession of 3 morons, won't run for President in 2016.
If there is a God.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/13/13 at 3:00

I say go ahead and let him run and lose!

By: bfra on 3/13/13 at 3:22

I gotta admit, the Bushes have more brass than the Liberty Bell! They think everybody just adores them .

My weewee loves his mother.

By: Jughead on 3/13/13 at 4:18

Democrat dudes are spineless girly-men who want to touch my weewee.

By: yogiman on 3/13/13 at 4:40

Darn, bfra, I thought I was the only one that made typographical errors. I was really surprised to see you made one. I didn't think you thought you ever did.

Did you do that on purpose to see if I would notice it?

But don't feel bad, you aren't alone. Just don't make any more.

By: dargent7 on 3/13/13 at 5:12

This just in..."Nashville Zoo reports a female bongo just gave birth..."
And I thought bongos were like mules, sterile.
"yogi"...there's hope, after all.

By: dargent7 on 3/13/13 at 5:25

New Pope is "Francis".
Looks kinda dull to me.
Like Ringo being replaced by the Beatles by the guy in the Turtles or Strawberry Alarm Clock..

By: budlight on 3/13/13 at 5:59

Does anyone besides me think Jughead's little snippits of wisdom are innappropriate?

Oh well. Just curious.

Did anyone else notice that the Asian spa at Opry Mills Mall has had a "therapist" arrested for sexual battery? OMG. I am glad someone finally caught on and reported that nonsense. I think it is a foot massage place that has a massage table in the back. Sometimes these people are not licensed and they get their diplomas or massage school graduation papers from a massage mill in California. I wonder who is getting kick backs on these jokers.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/13/13 at 6:20

Jughead is trying to lend some balance to this forum.

By: dargent7 on 3/13/13 at 6:27

A massage therapist arrested for sexual battery?
I always paid extra for that....

By: budlight on 3/14/13 at 6:32

D7, you are too funny. R aspy, I'd say jughead is an imbalance. good morning Nashville. Taylor Swift did not get your fanmail, D7. Your's either Jughead. She is probably heartbroken that she didn't get to read the fanmail dumped into a dumpster. Sure!
