This is getting disturbing.

    V-Dude, that was a good one about selling beer after the 3rd quarter in an NBA game.





    rick ;       or ........the NBA can keep the beer into the 4th quarter and invite all the stiffed hockey fans in,  and then it would become a multi - faceted sporting dvent consisting of basketball, wrestling, and boxing.     

    .......................................................V................................................................

    i always found the sunday limitations to be hypocritical.  when i moved from calif to georgia i first encountered the sunday prohibition of alcohol sales and thought that was pretty weird.  if there is something "wrong" with it, then ban it everyday.  if not, SELL IT everyday.

    on the only two hours on sunday thing;  if i only spent two hours with my "kids" on one day a week, i know where they would dventually wind up .....on the jerry springer show.

    2 hours on one day a week = a duty

    7 days a week =  a commitment

    20/20

                "i am .........."meant to"       

    P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

             until further notice,  it's  france everyday

      Hard to believe the Tennessee legislature would pass a bill taking 23 million out of their fund  unless.... hmmm....

      .....If I lived in Tennessee I would start stocking up on Jack Daniels and cigarettes right now.

      They're going to make it up by raising taxes on alcohol and tobacco.

      Ubetcha.

      But on the bright side, they're saving you from hellfire and brimstone.  At least you can take comfort in that.

        i cant understand what makes you think that Todd.

        DoctorEw understands well. we are all the same thing and unfortanetly the only thing we know for sure is that we get to rot underground. anything else is just a bonus

        I believe life is about finding someone you cant live without

        And showing them how much you care every day of every month of every year

          i wouldn't go to TN for smokes. i'd go to KY for smokes. there's no state minimm in KY for smokes. i once bought a carton for $10. back in pgh., $10 gets you 2 packs.

          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                    Yes, but does Kentucky have politicians that can protect you from

                        the wiles of the devil while you are there buying cigarettes,

                                 thereby saving you from the very gates of

                     HELL AND ETERNAL DAMNATION 

                                         

                                              like Tennessee does?

                    Okay, my two cents here.............I was born and raised in Bolivar, TN and just so it is known I am religious (to a comfortable degree Monday thru Friday). This is my take on it summed up in one broken sentence.

                    Seperation of state and religion!

                      ... which brings me to this question: If the church and state are separate, why does it say "In God We Trust" on the dollar bill?

                        I don't think it'll pass.  People in TN love the lottery and it would take too much money away.  Just my opinion.

                          My question to the politicians - what about those religions which observe the Sabbath on Saturday? Aren't you forgetting them in your proposed bill? Better make it "no lottery sales during weekends" just to be on the safe side.

                          ... the lottery never fails to surprise!
