If responsible enough to give life in service of country at 18 it is old enough to be responsible with drinking.

If you're not mature enough to drink at age 18, you won't be mature enough at 21 either. i say, lower it to 16 - liquor stores need the cash!!!

Come to Horney Barney's Extra Strong Liquors for a 10 percent discount on all wine under 1 year old!!

18 year olds (and some 21 or older) aren't mature enough to make responsible decisions. They are too busy being 'cool' and stupid because they can now drink.

You can enlist and be asked to die for your country at 18. If you are old enough to shoot someone you should be old enough to drink.

Blame this 21 year old drinking age on Alzheimer's-addled, neo-fascist Ronald Reagan.

You can or not. Unless it is mandatory, then it is a moot point.
If enlistment was mandatory, then I would agree.

Here in Oklahoma, beer shouldn't be a problem. Especially if you have a fishing license since the beer is pretty damn near water!

You can't buy domestic 6% beer in Oklahoma, but it really doesn't matter. The difference between 6 and 3.2 is all in your mind.
Here is why:

Most believe the six-point beer you can buy in Texas stores easily trumps Oklahoma's lower 3.2 beer, but believe it or not, there's not much of a difference between the two.

"The difference in the alcohol content is very minor," said the Oklahoma Malt Beverage Association's Brett Robinson. He'll be the first to tell you the difference in alcohol content between the beer sold here and the beer sold in Texas is really insignificant.

The reason: measurements.

In Texas, the alcoholic content of beer is measured by volume. In Oklahoma, the alcoholic content of beer is measured by weight. In fact, Oklahoma is one of only five states left in the nation that measure the alcohol content in beer by weight.

"So, let's say a domestic premium light beer from Texas is around 4 percent," said Robinson. "When you convert that to alcohol by weight, which is how Oklahoma's 3.2 percent beer is weighed, it comes out to be about 3.3 or 3.4 percent. So, it's really insignificant."

This means technically, yes, Texas beer does contain more alcohol, but it's usually less than a one percent difference than the beer in Oklahoma."

So, enjoy the taste and drink your beer in Oklahoma, or if you still think there's a difference, move your ass to Texas. Nobody will miss you.

I think the legal drinking age should be 12 years old, that way it would be easyer to trick all the girls, BURP!

BUD, Coors, etc don't distribute to OK liquor stores, dumbf@ck. Just brands like Lone Star, Pearl, etc. Quit drinking your Kool-Aid!
