Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Saturday, December 4, 2021


Here's a short comic book pamphlet from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division of the Internal Revenue Service, warning merchants to beware of people buying too much sugar.  Sugar is a vital ingredient in the making of moonshine liquor.  The moonshine business is run by organized crime so behind every hillbilly and a still is a crime boss who is making big bucks while not paying taxes -- so pay the taxes for him!  At least that's the gist of this government pamphlet.

There are still moonshiners out there, but the need for this propaganda is long gone. ( My father-in-law, newly married and going to school on the GI Bill, had a chance to drive moonshine in Georgia.  My mother-in-law put her foot down and nixed the whole idea.  I sometimes wonder how things would have turned out if she didn't.)

Enjoy this 'True Story of Moonshine."
