Excuse me, if you can’t be pissed assed drunk in a bar, where the hell can you be? Don’t drunks have rights too? Isn’t this going against what our founding fathers had in mind when they declared in The Bill of Rights that citizens, by law, have “the right to pursue happiness?” If you can’t find happiness in the bottle of a Bud, where can you?
To add to this craziness, just last night, several people were arrested for knocking back a few too many in the lobby bar of the very hotel where they were staying. In other words, the only heavy machinery they would be operating is the elevator to their room. Other arrests were made for people who had designated drivers. Does this law seem loony to you?
Just this month a California city declared itself a smoke free city. What does this mean? No smoking anywhere. Not even in your car if you have the window half open. Several states and countries, including Ireland much to my shame, have banned smoking in pubs. In other words, people, you can’t smoke or drink in excess in bars. Isn’t that the whole point of going to a bar? Getting drunk, smoking and drinking and getting laid by strangers?
Thank goodness some sane minded people are declaring this law unconstitutional and are taking to court. Let’s hope the judge is a drinking man.
