From the Dept. of Crazypants

First, a bit of background. Minnesota reached a budget impasse as Gov. Dayton and the Rs in the legislature were unable to agree between tax increases and budget cuts, with the parties falling on the expected lines. The dreaded gov’t shutdown occurred with all but ‘essential’ services shut down. Gov. Dayton made some decisions as to what constituted essential in much the same way we would expect: What services would provoke the people to miss their gov’t.

But this particular one is one for the books:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Miller, Coors and other popular beers may disappear from Minnesota stores and bars within days because brewing giant MillerCoors lacks the proper licenses due to the state’s government shutdown.

MillerCoors has 39 “brand label registrations” with the state that expired last month, and the employees who process renewals were laid off when state government shut down July 1 in a budget dispute, Doug Neville, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety, said Wednesday.

State alcohol enforcement officials who remain on the job recently told officials with Chicago-based MillerCoors LLC that they need to come up with a plan soon for pulling their products he said.

So the office that issues licenses is closed, but the office that enforces licenses is open. And some people want to turn our health care over to yahoos like this?

I was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay. My daddy was a poor, hardworking Saginaw fisherman. Too many times he came home with too little pay. Naw, not really, but it sounds more interesting than the real bio, so there you are.

  1. Yep, you can bet your bottom dollar, come a similar Fed shutdown of all but essential services, that grannie and her doc won’t get paid, ditto military, but that the EPA, FCC and ‘death panels’ will be going strong, working overtime to earn their keep with bonuses.
