Just to remind you what the Senate is protecting you from...

Thanks to the gutless chumps in the state Senate who couldn't pass a privatization bill (because it would interfere with their campaign cash nom-noms), we don't have to worry about this happening in Pennsylvania!

"Total Wine and More is set to open its sixth Washington state location in Olympia on July 18. The 21,000-square-foot space will stock more than 8,000 wines, 3,000 spirits and 2,500 beers, including 1,500 Washington wines, 80 spirits distilled in Washington or Oregon and 550 beers from the Pacific Northwest region. The outpost will also feature a “Brewery District” beer-tasting bar and growler station, offering 12 rotating taps of local craft brews. Total Wine and More’s seventh Washington store is slated to open in Spokane later this year."

Just imagine if we had passed a similar privatization law in Pennsylvania (without the stupidly greedy tax increase Washingtonians got stuck with, of course). We'd be faced with greater choices, lower prices, more jobs, and diminished border bleed within a year. Thank God the Senate is a spineless special-interest pool that can't bring itself to be a body that reflects the will of the people!

OMG! I would be constantly aroused walking around a store like that! Don't think I could stand one this close to home. I might need medical attention after four hours!

At 21,000 sqft it is one of the smaller Total Wine stores most of which are in the 30,000 sqft area as are most of the other 25 Superstores now in Washington.
