It's the biggest killer and homewrecker....of ALLLLLLL time.
While I agree that liquor is a killer and wrecks many homes, you cannot regulate behavior. And we saw what happened when there were laws against the manufacture and use or alcohol...remember prohibition?
Laws don't change people, and we definitely don't need the government telling us what to do in our private lives any more than they already do.
As for wine, well wasn't Jesus' first miracle turning water into wine? And I don't think Jesus was in the business of deceiving people by making something that they shouldn't drink. But He gave us free will, and we shouldn't be gluttons with wine, liquor, cookies, salad or anything. Moderation. In all things. Don't let anything, whether it be wine, liquor, food, pills-be your God. Put Him first, not what goes into you (It's not what goes into a man that defiles him...).
And if you want change, getting on a public forum and saying nasty, rude things isn't going to accomplish it. Pray for people. Pray about issues that concern you. If you spent as much time in prayer as you do on this garbage site there would definitely be change!
Just sayin'!

That would mean all convience stores,grocery stores,gas stations....I'm talking about downtown. The downtown is paid for by taxpayers....WE that have any common sense , know that is crazy.
It's all about meadowview and their WINERY. Meadowview is the largest waste and so many of the aldermen and mayor have gotten rich on the building thereof.$8.00 each for swimming a family of 4 would be dropping a big 50 dollar bill at the very least. For example Clark ,Dave he was an alderman , his x wife was on the kingsport housing and re-development authority. She didn't use his last name.
He knew what land to buy and where to buy it. NOTICE the signs that are forsale around Meadowview. IT's non other that Clark.
He lost the next election to the board of mayor and aldermen by 10 votes. There is a Clark on the boma now ...probably his son. Don't know.
It's the good ole' club. Pal barger and Dennis phillips are buddy,buddy.
Now leave my buddy Dave Clark out of it. He has enough trouble trying to keep his head out of his ass and Pal and I love our wine and hotdogs. So screw you people!
