You can’t even buy a car? Seriously?
Even if you don't care about the alcohol-related blue laws, there's also the matter of car dealerships not being allowed to stay open on either Saturday OR Sunday -- dealer’s choice (pun intended) on which day of the week. I have no damn clue as to how this one could make sense for moral reasons or be of any help to the integrity of the Lone Star State. Solution, let people sell cars whenever they please? I can understand the need to keep Troy Aikman away from his dealership on Sundays, in hopes he’d suit-up one more time. That’s not the world that we live in anymore. Until 1985, you couldn't even buy pots, pans, or washing machines on Sundays. Household items are higher necessity than transportation?
Keeping these restrictive laws in the books isn't just political, it’s archaic. Former Texas Representative, Doyle Willis, said in ‘85, “It’s time to move into the 20th century.” Well, Doyle, it’s now time for us to move into the 21st century.
