Should have read "Are you saying that profit above and beyond that made after supplier's cost is less than the income from tax on a fat bottle of Jack Daniels?"
Pennsylvania has an odd structure for pricing liquor, but it is a fact that 80% of the "profit" is tax revenue and not retail profit.

Pennsylvania probably gets very good prices from suppliers, but consumers pay very high prices because of high Pennsylvania taxes and extremely high liquor store overhead.
I can tell you that all liquor prices here in California are about 30% less than in Pennsylvania, and wine prices even lower than that.
Plus we have much larger selection and the convenience of shopping in the supermarket. Or at Sam's Club or Costco.
As for the Jack Daniels, only a Democrat would oppose individual freedom of choice.
Time to get out of the Dark Ages.
You sound not just anti-free market, i.e. what the market will bear regarding pricing, but also like a first year college student with the trite John Galt sig.(BTW my first son's middle name is Atlas in large measure due to the book ;)

BTW not matter who is in the market--the government, Aunt Ethel, Goober Joe or whoever--the market will bear what the market will bear. Or not.

As to individual freedom of choice may we not choose government?

State liquor stores are the farthest thing possible from the free market.

But never fear, your unionized shelf-stocking and register skills may qualify you for a supermarket job. Those guys are union as well.

Plus, someone with the name "skip the pee pee" should not criticize anybody.

Corbett looks bad in the Penn St scandel. As Attorney General of Pennsylvania, Corbett would not touch the Penn State investigation even as the victims kept piling up. As a PSU Board of Trustee member, he agreed to the sanctions in July.

So now, months later, he wants to breach the agreement that the Board of Trustees agreed to.

From the PSU Board of Trustees July Press Release:
"The University and the Board will comply with the NCAA’s sanctions"

Lets look at Corbett's approval ratings:

@TaxNoMore, I wish you'd stop pasting just random, worthless shit all the time and just contribute to the conversation at hand. I know you get excited after a long masturbatory session with Fox News, but I find a little humility goes a long way. Even if that means being subjected to your opinions.

Unlike other failed prosecutions, Corbett waited until he had an iron-clad case against Sandusky.

The NCAA is a monopoly in violation of every antitrust law on the books and the NCAA will never take the risk of going to court. Expect a settlement in which the penalties against Penn State are substantially reduced.

OK, so I'll admit I've been having a little trouble following this. But from what I can tell, a user named Skip to the Pee Pee is against it.
Unfortunately, I'm not seeing much of a compelling argument from either side. So let me take one....
The conservative crowd is decidedly anti government, anti union. Perhaps a simplification, but come on, that is a bit of a mantra at this point.
So why, oh why, would there be support for LITERALLY socialized alcohol sales in the state of Pennsylvania?
Well, first you have to remove the prudish, teetotaling portion of the state - those who want the guv'ment to keep their grubby hands off their guns and out of women's vaginas.
This is THE ISSUE where I agree with conservatives. End socialized wine & liquor sales. Open up the free market. Allow "distributors" to sell six packs.
Pennsylvania is becoming a great beer state, with some incredible craft breweries opening up all the time.
Don't be a hypocrite - if you're anti-socialism, then you have to be for this.

If you liberals are so gung ho on producing ID to purchase guns and ammo, which is a constitutionally guaranteed right, then I want ID to be produced when people go to vote!

You can't have your cake and eat it too.

It's both or neither...

Not sure what you think my position is, but I am completely opposed to the existing state liquor store system.

As for beer, the existing case-oriented beer distributor system is a joke. They are free to stay in business, if anybody wants to patronize them, but beer should be sold in six-packs (or whatever quantity) in supermarkets, along with liquor and wine.

FOX news is getting rid of their riff raff
Sarah Palin gets FIRED!!
NEW YORK (AP)— Fox News Channel is parting ways with former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, ending her three-year tenure as a contributor on the network.
While Palin's time at Fox was occasionally rocky, the network's news executive, Bill Shine, said Friday that "we have thoroughly enjoyed our association" with her.
"We wish her the best in her future endeavors," said Shine, Fox's executive vice president for programming.
She couldnt see Russia from the FOX studio..........

and when your gun owner finds out he needs a birth certificate with a raised seal to get the id he needs--he will realize that he has to spend around $40 to get his birth certificate.
then the gun owner will realize the problem with voter ID in PA.
besides republicans wanted voter id to help elect romney.

http://www.politicspa.com/turzai-voter-id-law...

"Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”

The statement drew a loud round of applause from the audience. It also struck a nerve among critics, who called it an admission that they passed the bill to make it harder for Democrats to vote — and not to prevent voter fraud as the legislators claimed."

Yes, President Obama, the Constitution applies to you, too.....but but but I know whats best for the US and my sheeples.

----------

Sometimes, Barack Obama acts like the Constitution does not apply to him and the Congress is an imaginary being. Friday, the United States Court of Appeals brought the president back to Earth and reminded him that that the Constitution’s Appointments Clause and the U.S. Senate are very much part of reality by voiding three of Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

We disagree on the term "free" in free market. Example: I let you get $100 in groceries off my Access card in return for $25 cash you pay to me which I buy a fishing pole with. How did my did my $25 enter the legitimate free market, by magic? No, the free market value was in government.

My free refers to "not coerced". Al Capone sold illegal poisonous bathtub gin to willing buyers. I'd say that was the market at play legitimized by government sor not.

At the opposite end of the equation we vote in legislators who stymie things. But as long as we are free to reverse that vote IMO it's part of a "free market" as far as value for value transactions go. The marketplace of ideas dictates the free market of commerce. Always has.

PS Don't blame me, my parents named me.
