One thought on “Review of Moonshine

  1. You know how do we live in a country where selling Dope (Marijuana) is legalized and we know its super harmful effects on the human brain in the high levels of THC . why the Hell cant we just make moonshine whiskey, without having to pay the damn government all the time..? we were better off being under British rule in 1776 than we are today. The stupid thing is,…we did it to ourselves all by ourselves,. And we all allowed it to happen due to the lack of “Cojones !”
    How darn Sad.
    FREEDOM. You say? ,… butt!
    your a TAX slave stupid.
