  1. Alcohol should only be allowed to be consumed in the privacy of a residence. Not in public or public venues. It’s amazing what the population accepts in terms of alcohol consumption.

    1. You are probably really young and don’t know this but they did try prohibition once in this country and it had problems galore. Does Joseph Kennedy ring a bell? He and his Kennedy clan became rich bootlegging during that time. Other big names like Al Capone, the Mafia and on and on and on. Only the masses get hurt with legislation like that. I don’t know about you, but I belong with the masses not the 1% that make up the rules as they go along.
