Alcohol Beverage Control Board Out of Control!

Control or Out of Control?

by Eli Harvey

Who would want his money in a bank whose president was a known embezzler?
Who would desire for his town a fire chief who was a known arsonist?
Who would personally employ a lawyer who was known for breaking the law?

Certainly, no one in his right mind. But in the State of Arkansas, we have a five-member
Alcoholic Beverage Control Board that is clearly out of control!
Anyone reading these lines is surely familiar with the petition by Sam’s Club to sell alcoholic beverages along with other merchandise. On Wednesday, 20 July last, in Little Rock, the ABC Board met in public session to hear Sam’s Club’s petition along with the opposing voices.

Of all the voiced and written views against the petition, one voice stood out taller and sounded out louder than all. It was the Law! Passed by the Arkansas Legislature and signed into law by the Governor, it clearly states:

AR 3-4-218
No new liquor permit shall be issued to, nor any outstanding liquor permit
be transferred to any person, firm, or corporation wherein the permitted
premises of the liquor permit-tee is operated as part of the profit making
business of any drug, grocery, sporting goods, dry goods, hardware, or any
general mercantile stores or any other business unrelated to the retail package
sale of such liquor.

Yet, what has been called the "the law" was effectively emasculated when the "Out-of-Control" Board raised its nose to the air, sniffed a whiff of booze and voted blatantly to allow the petition.
The Arkansas Code specifically regulates members of the Board as well; to wit:

3-2-101.
Interest of enforcement officers in alcoholic liquors prohibited.(a) Neither
the Director of the Department of Finance and Administration nor any officer,
employee, deputy, or assistant thereof shall have any direct or indirect
interest in or on any premises where alcoholic liquors are manufactured
or sold, nor shall he have any direct or indirect interest in any business
wholly or partially devoted to the manufacture or sale of alcoholic liquors
or own any stock in any corporation which has any direct or indirect
interest in the premises where alcoholic liquors are manufactured or sold
or in any business wholly or partially devoted to the manufacture or sale
of alcoholic liquors.

(b) Any person violating any provision of this section shall, in addition to the
penalty provided in this act, forfeit his office or employment or be removed
therefrom.

Is it not time for an investigation of the Board itself? Do any of the sitting members of the Board have stock in WalMart? Do any of the members have an "interest" in alcoholic sales? Maybe there’s a "good ‘ole boys’ club in the treehouse. Governor, you appointed ‘em. Maybe it’s time to get off the exercise bike and take a look into the business of state.

Trashing Huckabee... This blog exists to trash Republicans and advance the Quixotic dreams of the Constitution Party of Ark. Joust on boys & girls.

...and I think "Eli" is getting onto the ABC board more than the Governor. The board is split between Dem and GOP I think.

I am really disapointed with the ABC. Two members who claim to be Conservative voted in favor of the Sams Club.

anyone can look at the headlines on the blog and tell that it is not devoted to bashing Republicans. Are you a party hack? Are blogs not allowed to report bad things about your party?

"Eli Harvey" (not his real name) is a Republican, not a CPer.

We are conservative, but not partisan. That means when a Republican does things that are not conservative, we get on them. When a Republican needs to do their job, we point it out.

There are LOT's of Republicans in my neck of the woods that say worse things about Gov. Huckabee than you have ever read from my keyboard. Do you think Republicans are somehow above critisim?

This attitude that Republicans can do no wrong, or if they do we should hush it up, is a much bigger threat to the Republican party than the Constitution Party is. It is a bigger threat than the Democratic party (which already has the same mindset). It is a bigger threat because it is a reciepe for corruption.

Being open to thoughtful, valid critism is important to keep a person, or a political party, from sliding off course.

But if you want to try to shoot the messenger rather than listen, or even dispute, the message- then be my guest. More and more Republicans are becoming blind partisans such as you seem to want to be. That is good for the CP.

Hi there,

I officially gave up with making money with websites beginning 2010 when I decided to take another approach to making money and not working for a boss. This is when I met James aka 'The Prophet'. James is good at mathematics and he has applied his skills at trading penny stocks. I started trading alongside James and so far I'm having great results. I initially invested $100 which has now grown to $180 in just over a month. How is that for a great return? I invite everyone to join the program and receive daily trading instructions directly in your inbox. You can even give James a call. You don't even have to know how the stock market works. You can get trading within an hour, [url=http://tinyurl.com/yc3xkhx]PennyStockProphet[/url] Join the proram, it's risk free, you receive a 2 month money-back guarantee. Just thought I'd share my 2 cents worth.

Hi there,

Thought I'd share something interesting I got hold of recently. If you're sick and tired of running around totally broke while other players get barns and greenhouses and the most expensive villa, this information is for you.
You've probably always wondered why you can't seem to make as much money or level up as fast as the other players in the game.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here. I have recently decided to find a good vendor of e-cigarettes. I'm done with paying so much for tobacco smokes. Im deciding between either greensmoke or blucigs. Anyone using either of these?

how goes it?

2010 was not going to be just another new year for me , but a unimpaired new decade. While most go down goals relating to body issues, financial goals, career advancement, relationship pleasure -- I decided to overcome my addiction, specifically my porn addiction.

I'm sorry to say that I have finally failed to keep my addiction at bay and I have decided to keep an eye on some porn again. Do any of you guys know where I can gather up some quality adult pictures or porn:adult videos?? I'm specifically looking to download stuff without watermarks and good quality dvd rips to build a nice and tidy collection. No tube crap. I've been searching for the past 10 hours to get hold of something like this. This is the first time I've visited www.blogger.com but so far I have only found a few videos and picz shared by the members. I got some great content from a guy calling himself ZefUnfissardceasp from another popular forum but my appetite is still not quenched. This is one of the videos he gave me just to give you an example of the quality I'm looking for:[url="http://pornvb.com/pro-porn-clips/60961-my-first-sex-teacher-vanilla-deville.html"]my-first-sex-teacher-vanilla-deville-pornvb porn forum[/url]

Anyway, I hope this is the right category to post this question in.


Bon Soir



I think crime pays.
