I can't even buy a cold 6pk of real beer. I can't buy ice at the liquor store. I can't get a full stength beer on tap. Wow, what freedom! More like the stone age.

It was interesting they did not include sexual freedom in their assessment. If they did, I'm sure we would rank further down, like 50th. The absolute anti gay laws, almost total prohibition of any adult entertainment, nude gentleman's clubs, adult merchandise retailers, adult movies on Cable TV or satellite TV, etc.

Also the difficulty for non-members to speak openly among neighbors and coworkers about liberal or progressive ideology.

Given these restrictions and the virtual mono political governance, we have to be 50th.
