Next: a beer mandate?
Writing in Crisis, my old friend Chris Manion imagines a world in which the federal government provides free beer at taxpayers’ expense.
Alcoholics Anonymous protests, but statistics show that most alcoholics drink beer, and why would the White House listen to the AA representatives, when more sociable alcoholics are willing to discuss the question over a few cold ones. And the need for federal subsidy is obvious. Why, did you realize that some unfortunate undergraduates might spend $3,000 of their own money on beer during their years in college? A grave injustice, certainly.
