It never ceases to amaze me how so many so-called capitalists love supposedly socialist initiatives, as long as they are the ones receiving the benefits. They cheer free markets out one side of their mouth, while asking for more subsidy, tax favoritism or rules to prohibit competition out of the other. We've seen this sort of posturing most vividly in markets like oil and gas, utilities and defense contracting. But this year, there's another industry writing checks and asking for favors in order to maintain their monopolistic advantages – beer.

The Manatee County Democratic Party settled into its new facilities earlier this year. Unfortunately, on Monday, April 14, someone "egged" the front windows of the office. That, of course, sounds like something that a badly-brought-up 10 year old might do.
