It’s in! and blog readers can get it first

Tim June 9, 2009 at 4:51 pm

And we’re going to need this a lot in the upcoming decades…

Roark June 9, 2009 at 4:58 pm

Just in time for fathers day!

Briggs June 9, 2009 at 5:06 pm

I’ll be there tomorrow to pick one up! I am glad you decided to make this.

David June 9, 2009 at 5:22 pm

Ha! A wonderful foil for my KGB-era Lenin flask.

Joe June 9, 2009 at 6:30 pm

I was thinking about getting some Murray Rothbard commemorative hand grips for my Springfield M1911 .45 pistol. When will the Mises Institute start carrying these? Im sure there would be a huge demand for them!

greg June 9, 2009 at 6:32 pm

NO!!!!! I just bought a flask. Now I’m going to buy this and the other one will never get used…

Speedmaster June 9, 2009 at 7:27 pm

LOL, I like it! Would have been perfect during prohibition. ;-)

jc butte June 9, 2009 at 8:11 pm

How appropriate it comes on the day when the Supreme Court declared the rule of law null and void. Not quite my drinking hour yet but soon I will toast the dead republic.

Lester Hunt June 9, 2009 at 8:15 pm

What I want to know is: what would Murray have put into it? It seems only right that I use it for that beverage alone.

Jim Fedako June 9, 2009 at 8:16 pm

For the next item, what about a wide-mouth, plastic bottle for those who want to have Mises, et al, fuel their bike rides?

Conza88 June 9, 2009 at 9:08 pm

2nding the need to know what Rothbard’s drink of choice was..

phrizek June 9, 2009 at 9:21 pm

I would buy a stainless steel water bottle branded by the MI. Something along the lines of these: http://www.kleankanteen.com

I have a klean kanteen and I love it. I bring it everywhere. If it had a Mises logo or picture of Rothbard, I would love it all the more. I’m tempted to buy this flask, but don’t want to give everyone the impression that I’m a drunkard. I still might buy one, it looks way too cool.

Ryan June 9, 2009 at 9:24 pm

How about something for those of us who don’t drink alcohol? Perhaps a water bottle? :)

DixieFlatline June 9, 2009 at 9:59 pm

For everyone who doesn’t drink, but one anyway and fill it with Kool-Aid.

Mark June 9, 2009 at 11:03 pm

I ordered mine just in time for summer festival season.

Joseph June 9, 2009 at 11:05 pm

Ok so I know this is a little out there but I was just reading Dr. Block’s book Defending the Defending the Undefendable and I saw a comment about prohibition. Ofcourse, reading that book gives prohibition a new meaning…how about Hemp products with the Murray Enemy of the State insignia on them. Maybe even cases to carry nice pieces of glass art that you find in head shops?

Gregory Campeau June 9, 2009 at 11:18 pm

When will the Mises busts be available? I’ve forgotten what the time frame was.

mushindo June 10, 2009 at 1:47 am

Given that prohibition failed some 70 years ago, and the fact that hip flasks today tend to be associated with grizzled old men in grubby overcoats ( at least in my experience), perhaps this offering is misplaced.

Hence, I’m with Joseph. If you want to highlight the current incarnations of legislative absurdity and, how about an elegant ‘Enemy of the State’ cigarette case? Better still, a cigar case! Rothbard on the front, and Groucho on the back.

Ball June 10, 2009 at 4:08 am

I second the Kleen Kanteen request, although I’m very tempted to get this, too.

roy batty June 10, 2009 at 6:43 am

How about a Mises flask with tu nu cede malis???

Telpeurion June 10, 2009 at 7:57 am

Or a Böhm-Bawerk Bong for the smokers!

silverismoney June 10, 2009 at 9:20 am

I agree with the Murray pistol grips. Why not make a deal with one of the gun makers for a special commemorative Rothbard gun?

Greg Simmons June 10, 2009 at 9:56 am

Even though I’m more of a beer guy, I love this item! However, since Prohibition 2.0 will almost certainly involve automobiles and gasoline consumption, I wonder if a gas can with Murray’s mug might be more timely.

Jeremy June 10, 2009 at 11:11 am

The flask is as timeless as the man himself. Leave it to the Mises Institute to bring us such a wonderful item. Oh, and I must second the call for M1911 .45 commemorative hand grips, the gas can, and the cigar case! You can never have too much stuff with MR on it :)

David Spellman June 10, 2009 at 11:30 am

Judging from the comments, what we really need is an entrepreneur to start a business putting mises.com slogans and logos on the item of your choice. Why limit us to a flask when we could have the freedom of stamping anything we want?

Maybe simplify the whole process by creating decals of various sizes from 2-3 inches up to 2-3 feet that we could peel and stick on anything we want. I would suggest clear plastic with a choice of black or white printing and pictures.

Just take all those cool T-shirt images and supply them in a variety of sizes as peel and stick decals. Imagine the fun ways to advance the cause!

How about Alan Greenspan brand Whisky. You could do a Ben Bernanke brand hangover cure too, that could be made from Greenspan brand whisky.

A Don Boudreaux brand cluebat would be nice too.

Lee June 10, 2009 at 3:46 pm

Oh baby!

Nothing says “cure to the keynesian hangover dilemma” like MR on a flask.

I personally think that Mises.org beer pong cups would be a smash too.

Joshua Park June 10, 2009 at 4:15 pm

I’d love a stainless steel water bottle version. I could use a Hazlitt “One Lesson”… or perhaps Bastiat with “Life, Liberty, Property” or “Just Law”.

A 1911, an LvMI liberty band, a Ron Paul band & an alumnus of the LvM Summer U. of ’93 on 07.07.2008 somewhere on a shooting range in the land of the Switzers:

I was thinking about taking up hard drinking. This clinches it!
