It isn't a hoax at all. The army was already called out once in our history to "deal with" citizens just like him.

Yeah.. so you are saying it's about as real as slavery is still an issue, as real as women can't vote, or as real as Barack Obama in an Uncle Sam outfit.

e.g. NOT real.

This really shows why we don't make anything in America anymore. If we were unburdened by these laws we still would not make anything. We are too spoiled. We want big pay for menial jobs. We won't work over 40 hours a week and feel ripped off if we don't have a luxury car and a big house. Over regulation is only a small part of America's production problem. We let China make it for us.

the only thriving industry in this country is one the feds cant regulate but made illegal.

Someone explain the difference to me between selling alcohol unlicensed in your front yard and selling crack in your front yard.

Your story, though fictional, is not at all far fetched. Have we forgotten the Whiskey Rebellion? Washington and Hamilton both should have been stood against the wall for that. That was the federal government's first power grab. If we had slapped it down right there, we might live in a better world right now.


That was the moment in time America died. It's been nothing but tyranny ever since.

I want to build a time machine just to skew the odds in favor of liberty a bit that day.

People got all huffy and upset back when monopolistic overlords gunned down striking miners but when the government rode in and gunned down a bunch of farmers over taxes it just gets lost to time and the few who bother to remember it all just see hero Washington and the terrorist madmen of Pennsylvania.

A commodity is a commodity.

Crack, beer, lemonade or hand jobs. No difference.

Apparently, there is no difference. It seems that the alcohol vendor has broken(would break) more laws though.

What Mr Benton needs to do is instead of selling Beer he should have given it away for free as a token of appreciation for every donation he receives over a certain amount. Kids should give away their lemonade free for every donation overa certain amount. And the kid mowing lawns should ask for donations so he can buy a car and for every donation over twenty five dollars offer to mow the peoples lawn in token of appreciation for their most generous donation

The sign can read Free Beer Donate to the cause...


You are exactly correct. If people would use their brains a little bit, there are all kinds of ways to circumvent the system. Rich people get rich because they are smart enough to find the loopholes.

BULLSNIP.

If he were selling lemonade I would be on his side. Why could you not answer the question?

No, there is no difference except for the fact that the same people supporting him would turn their support away were it a different illegal thing he was selling.

So then the difference is your bias. Lemonade is holy and beer is sin. Your bias is your own.

Does it feel good to have an army represent your personal bias as a gun barrel pointed to the head of a private individual? Does it make you feel powerful?

If the gent had hopped over the border from Mexico illegally and was selling it, the feds would give him a pass.

Not withstanding the idiocy of the issue, what comes to mind is the amount of resources this rubbish takes. You have about a dozen different government entities engaged here. All that needed to happen, if anything, was for a local cop to stop by and tell him "look pal, what you're doing is against the law and you're going to have to shut this operation of yours down. Sorry about that"

Done

This is a classic example of tools in the government hunting something to do and invariably what they find is breaking the stones of the citizens.

Very interesting...and a lot of food for thought....thank you. As I was reading your story I thought....the man was being inventive...considering the economy...but at the same time ...I thought ...he is such a fool too.

I am curious....as the author of this thread....have you had some personal experience yourself...in getting the proper credentials to set up a business?

I was just wondering theoretically, how much it would actually cost to ensure a small home brewing business is legal !

This is what is known as "barriers to market" entry ... Free Trade ... hohohoho

To sell your beer, regardless of amount, you have to be a licensed brewery.


Persons who produce beer for sale, no matter how small the amount, must qualify as a brewer under the provisions of 26 U.S.C. 5401. In addition to paying the Federal excise tax on any beer that is removed from the brewery for consumption or sale, consumer packages must contain the government health warning statement (see 27 CFR part 16). Further, the labeling and advertising provisions of the Federal Alcohol Administration Act, which are found at 27 U.S.C 205, may apply. Regulations implementing § 105 of the Act, as they relate to malt beverages, are set forth in part 7 of the TTB regulations (27 CFR part 7), Labeling and Advertising of Malt Beverages.
TTBGov

Distribution laws vary by state. Meaning in some states you could brew at home and sell at home but if you wanted to sell at a farmers market you'd have to hire a licensed distributor to bring your beer to the market. Even if it's just at the end of the road.

Here is a link to NH state licensing fees: NH liquor fees

It's all about money and control.

Would they be able to charge anyone of any of those crimes if they live in an unincorporated area???

I was thinking of starting a business in an unincorporated area or on a barge seven miles out to sea.

hmmmm?????

These are all corporate laws we are talking about here though. If you are in an unincorporated area, can they be enforced???

Jaden

Would they be enforced?? Probably, but can they legally be enforced is the question....
