Repeal Day 2008

Who says that the Constitution is immutable?

Today is the 75th Anniversary of the Repeal of the 18th Amendment, and the unjust Prohibition of tasty adult beverages; a day which many are taking as Repeal Day.

To date, the 18th Amendment, Prohibiting Alcohol, was the only Constitutional Amendment which has ever been repealed. It was ratified in January 29, 1919, and repealed December 5, 1933.

So celebrate Constitutional Mechanics, and exercise your Constitutional Right.

So, today, it is your Civic Duty to consume your favorite tasty adult beverage.

    Repeal Day: Did you ever think that U.S. Constitutional History could taste so good?

If you are really into the Spirit; make some Bathtub Gin while you are at it.

It is the next best thing to Scotchtoberfest.

Remember, Share and Enjoy; and please drink responsibly.

  1. So answer me this: if a constitutional amendment was required to give Congress the authority to regulate alcohol, why is one not required to give them the authority to regulate drugs?

  2. Forget Bathtub Gin, I’ll drink this stuff. Tried a 50mL bottle and I can honestly say its the best gin I’ve ever tasted. It’s even made in Philly.

  3. “if a constitutional amendment was required to give Congress the authority to regulate alcohol, why is one not required to give them the authority to regulate drugs?”

    Good question! Though apparently Congress isn’t required for much of anything anymore.

  4. Uh… that made sense when I thought it.

  5. Cisco, did you mean, Congress doesn’t need much, in terms of authority, anymore?

  6. And, The-Roommate Formerly-Known-as Matthew-Maynard, it is probably better than Gilbey’s Gin, yes?

  7. It’s better than Sapphire Gin too, and that’s pretty good stuff.

  8. Let’s put it this way – Jennifer will drink it, and she normally prefers anything but gin.

  9. Gosh, I would hate to not do my part. I’ll get right to participating.

  10. No Jer, I meant that congress has given up (willingly it seems) more an more of it’s authority to the president. But that doesn’t speak to Mathew’s question at all.
