AARGGHHHH! I just found out it is “National Drink Beer Day”! I signed onto the Internet to check my email, and on Yahoo’s main page I see that “National Drink Beer Day” is trending. I was like, “What????” and I see all these articles about how great it is to drink beer and what a cause to celebrate and everybody drink up, etc. After all the years I have ranted against alcohol, and then I find out we have a whole DAY devoted to drinking beer??
And we will never get the pot smokers to understand why it’s wrong and immature to use drugs, as long as nice, decent, grown adults think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol. I have chastised pot smokers for years online, and their number one excuse is, “pot is safer than alcohol.” I tell them, “We shouldn’t smoke pot OR drink alcohol! How hard is that?” But they see all these people drinking alcohol, and think they are entitled to use THEIR drug. Even my hometown started an annual “brewfest” last year, holding their second one last week. And the local paper posted a big article about it on the front page raving about all the thousands of people who showed up to “enjoy craft beer.” Haven't they read a thing I've written??
