Prohibition was repealed earlier in 1933 but the change to the amendement did not come into affect until December the 5th. On this day beer was delivered to President RooseveltÂ Â who exclaimed “I think this would be a good time for a beer.”
2008 resembles 1933 in lots of different ways. Bank bailouts, financial ruin, people losing their homes and different groups trying to force their views onto the people. Prop 8 passing in California is a good example of this. Do a search for 1933 to see for yourself.
Enjoy a beer, wine or something mixed on December 5th. it’s your constitutional right.
