Why don't put your money where you mouth is and throw a fundraiser, then you can report back and tell us how much you raise and for what cause?

So with what part of post#3 do you two disagree; that this is the USA or that no one is forcing you to partake?

This is the USA. Thats true. And no one forces you to partake. Thats also true. But there is just one more truth here. You get defensive when people disagree with alcohol sales and consumption.

Never heard of Caleb Davis...Anybody know him??? Anybody know what happened on Lower Armstrong Tues. nite 3/20.. Must have been 20 county, state trooper, EMS and Fire Dept. vehicles on Lower Armstrong near the river bridge around midnight. Gazette usually posts police and fire blotter every day but for some reason did not post for that date... I find that a bit strange....

For every article about the dangers of alcohol, there is an article/study of the benefits of drinking in moderation.

It really all comes down to a matter of personal beliefs.

DUI is illegal. Alcohol consumption is not.
