“Five years of Prohibition have had, at least, this one benign effect: they have completely disposed of all the favorite arguments of the Prohibitionists. None of the great boons and usufructs that were to follow the passage of the Eighteenth Amendment has come to pass. There is not less drunkenness in the Republic, but more. There is not less crime, but more. There is not less insanity, but more. The cost of government is not smaller, but vastly greater. Respect for law has not increased, but diminished.”     H. L. Mencken

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

In my post on alternate voting systems, I called the Republicans and Democrats the “beast with two asses”, making an allusion to the old “making the beast with two backs” euphemism for sex. However, I think I’ve got an, ahem, more colorful example that works better:

American democracy is a threesome where the Republicans and Democrats are fingercuffing the American People.

YMMV — Insert “eiffel towering” if it’s your preferred innuendo.
