Now maybe we can get more businesses to come here instead of going to Lexington for everything. That's why Meijer's, E.W. James and that strip mall by Advanced Auto & Radio Shack didn't set up here. Plus the taxes alcohol generates will help with roads & other things this city needs. Way to go!!!

Drinking water and driving never made anyone run into trees or other objects. Alcohol, on the other hand,does--and even takes innocent lives.

Your other post states you're a preacher and you're on here calling people stupid? A preacher should be doing godly things, not reading beer stories on topix

You sound like a very angry, judgmental person. Perhaps your childhood was not a good one, but still, you can become a better person if you want to be a better person. Do you even know what “stupid” parents are? I doubt it. Perhaps my post hit too close to home?“Stupid” parents are people who get drunk, neglect their children, couldn’t care less if they pay their bills or even if their children have a roof over their heads (just to mention a few). Some “stupid “parents have even traded their child(ren) for drugs. And you’re judging me?

Who else (other than yourself) thinks preachers shouldn’t read beer stories? Preachers have a responsibility to keep up with what’s going in the world. Just because you might stand for “easy access” to booze, doesn’t mean everyone else does. Some of us are deeply concerned for the safety of our children and for all the other innocent folks out there. There are too many drunks on the roads driving as it is. Booze (whether you agree or not) destroys families, careers, and lives.

Someone seems to enjoy posting Spam and Peanuts and big X’s. But that still doesn’t change the fact that: alcohol destroys families, careers, and lives.

judging by your posts, if you are a preacher you are a real douchehole. i'm not a preacher, i have no problem using the word douchehole.

saying alchol does evil things, i'm guessing you're a gungrabber too? if not - wow what hypocrisy.

alcohol can't do anything but sit in a container. if you fail to find the source of a problem - you'll never solve that problem.

i feel sorry for your parishoners.

the Bible:
it says don't be a drunkard. it says drink wine.

pretty simple, "moderation" of one's own intake, not draconian control of others.

You folks got beat by nearly 4 to 1 at the vote. People have to use moderation. If there are drunks everywhere now at least they will be driving shorter distances since now they are all on 25 into lexington everyday. Jesus turned water to wine. He loved having a glass with dinner. He also wanted it readily available thats why he didnt want 10 miles to turn that water. Drink up Georgetown- For Jesus.

No not for Jesus. Its for you and the drinkers He new to drink in moderation. But those as drunks do not . 10 minute drive still enough time and distance to harm or even kill an innocent person or family . Including mine and yours.

I worry more about everyone who doesn't use turn signals, texts while driving, leaves their lights off when its dark and/or raining, and drivers who stay in the passing (left) lane. These idiots kill more people than drunk drivers. These are the same mouth breathers who were blowing smoke in my 2 year olds face at the parade last week. I drink in moderation. I dont drive when I drink. Do not group everyone who has an occasional beer or glass of wine in with raging drunks.

Ditto on the fools driving slow in the passing lane! Bunch of inconsiderate bastards. It's called a passing lane for a reason AND IT'S NOT FOR GETTING PASSED!

At first reading, I thought to myself well this is another person who had a bad childhood and hasn’t been able to shake loose from it its damaging effects, so I’ll just not reply. But then I realized that it would be wrong of me if I let the stupidity and the falsehood in your post go slip-by without me responding.

1. Calling me names hurts you the most, because it reveals what type of person you are. Name calling is evidence that you don’t have substance or anything intelligent to say. Name calling also reveals your desire to polarize and attack those you disagree with—and—incite hatred towards anyone who disagrees with you.

2. Your comparison of alcohol and “gungrabber”(as you labeled me), sounds more like desperation on your part. If “alcohol can't do anything but sit in a container”, then according to your estimation guns can’t do anything either.

3. I don’t know what Bible you’ve been reading. But the Bible does not suggest drinking wine—and it certainly doesn’t command us to drink wine (as your statement indicates).

4. You accuse me of “draconian control”. But isn’t that exactly what you are hoping to accomplish against anyone that disagrees with you?

5.
