Governor Cuomo Announces Alcoholic Beverage Control Law Working Group Recommendations | Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

     Governor Cuomo's task force on updating the archaic and Byzantine alcohol beverage control law has a good suggestion in making Sundays the same as the other six days for opening time for on premise. This is better than the ill advised plan for special mimosa permits.

      Most of the rest of it all has to do with wine and cider and pushing that industry.

       How about busting up the liquor cartel that allows monopolies on product and lousy service as there are not other options for buying product. ?

Why don't you run for governor Jeff? Maybe straighten things out!

The laws are in place for a reason. First to employee people in govenrment jobs. And second, to allow the lawmakers to make you think they have political clout, when they miraculously solve a problem like being too close to a church to get your license.

Nah, they're too busy making sure Luke Bryan fans don't pay an extra 20 bucks for a concert ticket once a year.

The United States was much more united when Christianity was held in the highest respect. Very few businesses were allowed to even be open on Sundays. People had much more clarity on what was right and wrong, even though a lot of what is revered as "civil rights" now has allowed much more divergence on several fronts.
Making Sunday just like every other business day is not only acknowledging a non belief system in our society, but encourages it.
You would NEVER get away with this in countries like the those in Western Asia nor in Islamic states where that belief is strong.
A society is destroyed when it emphasizes self as the most important thing.
Such societies are doomed to failure as was evidenced by the crumbling of powerful civilizations in our past. To focus on "other" reasons is simply rationalization. The larger point is missed.
Our society is obsessed with the prominence of self importance over any unifying belief system.
