If Belmont world have stayed away from selling alcohol

As usual, Don, you can't refute me so you get personal.  (Wednesday Sep 2 | post #30)

If Belmont world have stayed away from selling alcohol

A vibrant central business district that is the envy of neighboring towns. Restaurants. Better grocery stores because they can sell beer and wine. Young natives who stay here or return after college. More young families. There was plenty of drinking in Belmont before legal alcohol sales. A lot of it was done illegally including in cars and associations which I won't name. As I said in a previous post, anti-alcohol forces never let the truth get in the way of their narrative.  (Wednesday Sep 2 | post #28)

Doubt if Curious lives anywhere near Belmont. If he did he wouldn't be that uninformed.  (Friday Aug 21 | post #21)

If Belmont world have stayed away from selling alcohol

I was born in Belmont, lived in Charlotte for eight years after college, and moved back in 1984. At that time textile industry was still fairly strong here but downtown was dying a slow death. Even after much building renovation and the city's downtown improvements, downtown was still declining. Only after alcohol sales passed did downtown really become vibrant. Our young people used to go off to college and never return. Now they are coming home and many more young people are choosing to rear their families here. Since Belmont doesn't have an ABC store, direct revenues go to Cramerton or Mount Holly. You may not like them but those are the facts.  (Friday Aug 21 | post #8)

Your anti-alcohol bias clouds your thinking. It doesn't do much for your writing skills either.  (Thursday Aug 20 | post #6)

Don't let the naysayers on this forum bother you. They've never had an original thought and have contributed nothing to society but hot air. If they had had their way, Belmont would be deader than a door nail.  (Jul 3, 2015 | post #22)

I get the feeling you're not a fan of private property rights or free enterprise.  (Feb 21, 2015 | post #109)

That's what's so great about the USA. That's your choice to make.  (Feb 21, 2015 | post #98)
