Shades of Prohibition! Just another attempt to erode our liberties in favor of a false sense of security. If we continue to allow the progressive drive in this country to control all aspects of our lives, because they know better than we do, we will no longer be able to make any decisions within our daily lives. To any who think this would be a good thing move to Beijing and see how you like living in a totalitarian country. We need to scale back on regulation and government. This type of over-regulation is what the framers of the Constitution warned us about! Read the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers and the Debates on the Constitution. Wake up America! By the way I don't drink alcoholic beverages.
Stupid behavior will not be removed/stopped with legislation. All it does is hinder liberties of the majority who are law abiding citizens
I managed clubs and you're right. One club had barely 21 kids and we staffed 7 large bouncers on all busy nights.
Next club the owner tells me I may not strike except in self defense because there they "restrained" the patron causing trouble. (I thought he was nuts)
He wasn't. No fights because the crowd was young professionals who understood you could drink without being loud or obnoxious. I only got to restrain 2 people over several years and the thief I would have hit anyway was "restrained" by my fast bartender before I got a punch in.
Booze is a serious chemical but most folks handle it fine. Kids as a general rule struggle for a bit but that's life.
I'll believe corporations are persons when Texas executes one.: LBJ's Ghost
It's about a 13 hour drive from Montreal to PEI. Whenever we go, there are a few nice rest stops we like to visit along the way.
There's a very nice one in Riviere du Loup, overlooking the St. Lawrence River before it becomes the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
We always stop there for a nice picnic lunch and my wife and I usually have a nice cold beer with our lunch while we are there. And we're not alone. A lot of other people apparently enjoy a beer or glass of wine with their lunch just as much as we do, after driving for 6 hours.
It appears that silly laws do nothing except create more innocent scofflaws.
I don't want amy more legislation that will be selectively enforced! Until the government starts enforcing laws that are already on the books, like immigration laws, there should be no new laws!
If someone wants to have a beer walking around the lake, who does it hurt? But an illegal immigrant here, steals a job, puts a burden on schools and medical services, and in some case fills our prisons.
No I don't think it is a good idea. Arrest the few idiots and leave everyone else alone. If I want to drink a beer or two while having a party with friends at a park I should be able to do that.
Too man laws to govern everything in life.
Whats next? Ban the drinking of soda in public. No drinking coffee in public. Lets add another federal agency the The Bureau of Public Decency. BPD would be charged with enforcing any and all decency laws.
I don't think much of anything should be banned. Just as helmet laws and seatbelt laws. You are forced to think it is for everyone good. They are not, they are to make money for the city, county, state. That is all they are there for.
If someone gets drunk and out of hand arrest them and put them in the drunk tank and slap a fine on them.
Enforce all the idiotic laws we got ont he books now.
I'm not Sheldon! I'm the Flash! And now I'm going to the Grand Canyon to scream in frustration *takes two quick steps* I'm back
