Affrika X said the governor’s Sunday liquor sales plan would hurt alcoholism-plagued areas like his. Other shoppers at neighborhood stores wondered: What’s the big deal?

X (pictured) offered his perspective while picking up a box of sugar on Monday afternoon at the Country Market. If Gov. Dannel Malloy has his way, the corner store at Dixwell and Munson in Newhallville will be able to sell beer on Sundays.

The governor announced the proposal on Saturday. He said the plan would allow Connecticut to compete with surrounding states for dollars spent on liquor on Sundays.

Customers buying booze on Monday agreed with the governor. They said they’d like to buy it on Sundays as well.

Bad idea, said X.

I don’t have any issues with alcohol being sold on Sunday.  With that said, it is amazing that Malloy backs going from a 0 to 80 in one shot..no gradual upswing such as perhaps wine sold in supermarkets, beer and wine sold on sundays etc….Seems to me like he’s looking to create more work for his union buddies by fueling alcohol addiction thus creating the need for more social services at the taxpayer expense.

OK. We can tax people on Sunday’s so that they can engage in their destructive behavior. Next on the docket…let ‘em get high so we can tax stoners as well and as an added benefit reduce the need for trropers on teh interstates!
