I am NOT starting a discussion so that people can discuss the evils of alcohol and quote bible verses. I simply want to encourage EVERYONE to vote in the upcoming election. Liquor will ALWAYS be available for purchase in surrounding counties Why shouldn't Corinth receive the extra money instead of giving it to Alabama, Tennessee, or Lee county? I am old enough to remember when it was voted out. Churches bused in members who normally would not have gotten out to vote, and it worked. I would be willing to bet that the churches in the city plan to do the same. Please make your voice heard, vote. If you don't enjoy a cocktail after work, that's great. I promise that I will not hold a gun to your head and force you to drink, but I'd like to keep my money closer to home.

The Molotov cocktail is a generic name used for a variety of improvised incendiary weapons. Due to the relative ease of production, they are frequently used by amateur protesters and non-professionally equipped fighters in urban guerrilla warfares. They are primarily intended to set targets ablaze rather than instantly destroy them.
The name "Molotov cocktail" was coined by the Finns during the Winter War.[1] The name is an insulting reference to Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov, who was responsible for the partition of Finland.[2] Molotov himself highly disliked the name.
I find it interesting that you posted that since there will be a number of lives destroyed if liquor is voted in

So when it gets voted back in, you will not go back to tupelo?
No need right? You will want to keep all your money here.
I went to Wolfchase mall in memphis the other day, they have bunches of stuff we don't have.
Then I went to see the zoo lights.
We don't have a zoo either.
I enjoy the aquarium at Chatanooga, we don't have one of those either.

Thanks be to people who vote liquer "back in" we will never leave town again. ;)

Why are people shocked when churches vote no on hard booze?
Talking about going through alot of trouble to get something, what about the empty parking lot on hwy 2 or 350 ? What about the bridges and bike paths built, trying to tie corinth with shiloh, so they could get liquer? All while hwy 72 and many other streets are in shambles?

I urge all Corinthians to vote yes and put an end to this nonesense. Yes for alcohol sales will be a big win for the City of Corinth.

Up front is the fact that a whole lot of cash that is flowing out of Alcorn County to Savannah, Jackson and Tupelo will stay here. Secondly it offers an open city to a number of resturant chains that will not consider a dry town.

It means business opportunities in the waiting for Corinth and the surrounding area.

We have to put the commercial interests of the City first if we want growth. I do want growth.

Once a City opens up there are endless possibilities. Take a look at Florence since they did the same thing. Steady growth year over year.

Vote yes !

Go to Facebook and look at the keep Corinth dry page. They have already talked to tgi Fridays and liquor has nothing to do with why they won't come here. It's population.

Lol, TGIF coming to town. That's also why the Slugburger fest is so shiiiiitttty now. Who's coming to perform in a dry county. Question? Why didn't the Churches in Savannah, Florence, Tupelo, Jackson and Baldwyn protest or fight against. Because they wanted growth.

Voting yes to liquor sales doesn't mean ground will be broke for Applebee's Wednesday. It doesn't mean that the mall of Barnes crossing will uproot an come to Corinth. After its voted in you will more than likely only get it by the drink. Just to give you people something else to bitch about.

I don't buy nail polish due to my faith in masculinity ergo due to the risk of silly people and the children (win button) sniffing it nor should you be able to.

I don't choose it so you must loose it? There's that freedom we all know and love.

I'd vote yes for any choice. Gays carry purses, dogs using catnip, wiping your ass with a racoon, mixing 7up and mt. dew with neosporin to cure your cold. Whatever don't care. Tastes serve you as an individual but have no business dictating your neighbors life. Everyone gets paid with their own consequences. No one made anyone the worlds only accountant on that. Tried that back in the 40's in germany and they rightfully got blown da fuck up.

No one in my family drinks, not even beer but I was hoping it would pass for the simple reason that win or lose people will still drink. My personal opinion is that it is better that no one has to drive out of town to buy their liquor. I know people are saying that if it is voted in there will be more accidents but I am not so sure of that. I do not think it is really going to increase people drinking, but it will keep more off the roads, at least I hope so.
That being said, I was told this morning by a city official that it would not pass. He said that the surround wet counties are buying votes to vote against it. I hope this is not the case, I just hate dirty politics.
