Why Stop At Junk Food and Cigarettes
Smoke-free bars and public houses will attract more female customers and could fuel the rise in binge drinking among women, a report warns.
It points out that as bars and pubs become more appealing venues to women, female customers are more likely to consume larger amounts of alcoholic drinks than before.
And because women are marrying later, they are spending more time in pubs and other venues that serve alcohol, where they are more likely to meet men.
The rise in alcohol consumption among women is causing serious concern for the Government. Doctors say liver disease is now being seen in younger people.
Since the government has seen fit to intervene in what its citizens elect to put inside their bodies, I think it is high time that we reconsider prohibition. After all, cigarettes are bad and becoming more and more restricted and subject to heavy taxation. Junk food seems to be the new target with legislation aimed at fattening snack items becoming more frequent. And of course, there is the laundry list of illicit drugs that are currently illegal. It is high time to take another look at banning alcohol and protecting citizens from themselves.
And think of all the money that can be saved. Less money spent on medical treatment for the side effects of alcohol abuse, less drunk driving incidents, and so forth. Heck, even feminists should get behind this as banning alcohol will mean fewer drunken men and women at things like frat parties.
Frankly, if any American opposes prohibition, why I think they are downright unpatriotic.
That last bit there was sarcastic for those who are sarcasm impaired.
