Yeah, let's blame the bar owners, because they are making those people come into their bars and drink. I didn't realize the bar owners are supposed to be the police. Most bar owners serve people responsibly. The likening of bar owners to drug dealers is patently absurd and a straw man of the greatest proportion. You sir, Mr. Mitchell, need to pull your head from the sand.
