A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT AND ONE INSIPID BEE-YATCH



Just got updates on the ongoing saga of premeditated tax rape going in the KY Capitol. Won't waste time with my epithet-laced commentary so take it away Eric Gregory, president of the Kentucky Distillers Association:

"We had the alcohol tax bill killed this morning in the Senate Appropriations & Revenue Committee. The vote was 8-8 – which means it would have failed – but Sen. Elizabeth Tori changed her vote at the last minute. This means that the bill now goes to the full Senate for a vote tomorrow.

However, the closeness of the vote has sent shock waves throughout the Capitol. Senate Leadership is working its members hard, trying to change votes. I’m sure the Governor will begin twisting arms soon. He testified this morning at the Senate A & R Committee. (Let me quickly thank Don Berg of Brown-Forman, Mark Brown of Buffalo Trace & Bill Samuels of Maker’s Mark for their incredible testimony this morning, plus all the other Master Distillers and representatives who attended).

BOTTOM LINE – WE MUST DOUBLE OUR EFFORTS.
WE ARE IN THE FINAL HOURS OF THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS. OUR VOICES MUST BE HEARD – SPREAD THE WORD!

E-mail Senators here: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/whoswho/email.htm
Leave a message for all Senators at 800-372-7181 – “VOTE NO ON HB 144! STOP THE ALCOHOL TAX INCREASE!”
Here are some key Senators who we must contact to sway their votes, with their direct office lines & extensions:

Sen. Julian Carroll (represents Woodford Reserve, Buffalo Trace, Beam in Frankfort, Four Roses and Wild Turkey)
Office phone: 502-564-8100, ext. 651

Sen. David Boswell (Owensboro – Constellation Spirits/Medley)
502-564-8100, ext. 62

Sen. Tom Buford (Lexington)
502-564-8100, ext. 610

Sen. Kathy Stein (Lexington)
502-564-8100, ext. 608

Sen. Perry Clark (Jefferson County)
502-564-8100,ext. 715

Sen. Julie Denton (Jefferson County)

502-564-8100, ext. 645

Sen. Dan Kelly (Maker’s Mark, Heaven Hill, Constellation Spirits and others)

I must place the emphasis on contacting the Janus wench, Sen. Tori, who seemingly took cues from a pro-tax crazed teleprompter somewhere under skirt perhaps. Regardless, we've got to kill this friggin' thing before the beginning of being taxed to death in this state becomes a reality!

Where are all these cowards? I guess when your busy fucking over the little people, there is no need to stop and justify it.
