The state of Georgia just took several leaps and bounds into modern civilization. Georgians pretty overwhelming approved to allow Sunday alcohol sales in 13 cities and counties across Georgia including: Gwinnett, Dekalb, and Cobb.
Let us rejoice in the fact that we are actually being allowed to make personal choices for ourselves. Let us rejoice even more.. that the stranglehold of the bible thumpers on our individuality and personal choice.. is coming to an end.
