Wisconsin folks just don't get it!!

Why are their stories out here for the "Sane" Minnesotans??

Doesn't Wisconsin have their own BLOGS??

I mean we pay all their taxes and educate their kids what more do they want??

South Dakota, too? Interesting. I wonder how many states allow underage drinking outside the home with parents present. Why MADD could get involved in this, is because obviously if a parent is in an establishment drinking with his/her kid, odds are that same parent is going to be driving back home with the child. If that's not scary enough for you, now those kids who are seeing their parents drive under the influence with them in the car, are soon to be getting their driver's licenses. Guess what behavior they'll emulate? I know I'm serious on this, but it's a serious subject. I lost a dear friend to drunk driving and I won't take it lightly.

I do not take drunk driving lightly either, but just because a kid can have a beer with his parents in a restaurant, doent make driving drunk legal..the same laws still apply., In texas they have drive up liquor stores where you can buy and drink and hit the road, you can drink and drive in texas, but you better not be drunk, they have tough drunk driving laws

If you have read ZenBirdist's posts over the months, you would know she is nothing like you describe here. She is one of my favorites due to the fact that she can comment without insult, without ridicule, and is always respectful of others opinions. Even in her initial post on this article, she is referencing HER THOUGHTS on the matter. And in typical ZenBirdist fashion, without incoherent ramblings or derogatory remarks (such as yours for example). She obviously feels strongly about the subject matter and that is her right.

I appreciate your comments, however having a beer with dinner does not constitute drunk driving, your assuming that everyone who drinks, drives drunk

While it's true that not every driver who's had a beer or two is drunk, every drunk driver has been drinking. I believe MADD's aim is "no" drinking before driving, not just drinking "a little" before driving. Not sure, I'm not a member. Pertaining to the issue of serving children alcohol with their parents' graces in Wisconsin establishments, I don't think it's okay to drive the kids back home after tipping even one back. I don't think that sets a good example for the kids.

This is absolutely unbelievable! This "mother" should be fined to the maximum, and spend some well earned time behind bars for her poor decisions. 11-14 year olds? What on earth was she thinking? I couldn't even imagine serving alcohol to the ADULTS at a birthday party for a 12 year old, let alone thinking that it was a good idea to give it to children. How insane and unfit is this woman? Thank goodness that some of the kids had enough maturity to tell their parents about this mess of a mother!
U know some people are just that way but why hurt the kid more by taking her mom away?? ever think of that??

When we moved to Wisconsin some years ago, we were appalled to see children served alcohol in taverns here with their parents' approval. The first time I saw it happen, I flagged the waitress down and gave her what-for. She said as a parent herself she was mortified at having to do that part of her job, but in Wisconsin it is (or at least was, not sure now) legal for a parent to order alcohol for their child in establishments that serve. I was skeptical until I saw it happen again in a different restaurant. The third time I saw it happen, it was a child I knew so I took the drink away and ordered her a virgin version of it.(Her parents didn't dare cross me.) Of all the idiotic laws for a state to overlook, this is/was one of the worst of them. I would think that MADD would be all over it, as well as child protection groups.

I don't believe so. If a post has been deleted, I think it would be by a forum moderator.
