I don't think it really needs to be "pitched". Teachers all over the country will be your best customers. Pants will be dropping in classrooms everywhere !

the only ones who didn't benefit from this action is the public -- we lose again to the lobbyist -- less competition means higher prices for you and me.

The liquor stores-quasi socialist special interests- will now raise all their prices again, great. They are not small businesses, they are an artificial creation of anti-alcohol polititians and a by-product of prohibition.
All you need to do copper is write out 10 more BOGUS tickets a week and your CUT of those 10 will more than make up for any increase your ignerts brain thinks booze will increase in JERSEY cause of this NY decision!

Don't they own the 7-11's?? I though the Latino's had the liquor stores all locked-up.

Even if this bill had passed I would (and will) continue to buy wine in a liquor store. I find the staff to be very helpful in suggesting different wines for different foods, occasions, seasons, etc. I don't think a 18 year old cashier or stock person would be as helpful.
SO....IF YOU DESIRE...YOU COULD STILL BUY FROM A LIQUOR STORE, BUT WHY ""NOT"" A GROCERY STORE???
