    A proposal for reasonable alcohol control

    Saw this on another forum

    With all the talk about how important "just one life" is, I would propose the following:

    Obviously, we can not ban alcohol beverages. Prohibition was repealed by the 21st amendment. Prohibition is not my goal. However, we see every day the carnage wrought by excessive alcohol consumption. While I cannot prohibit alcohol, the regulation of it is a clear responsibility of government in order to protect the public. Sure we have regulated alcohol for quite some time, but obviously, we have not done enough.

    My proposal is based in the following facts:
    -nobody NEEDS to get drunk. Drinking for social events or to relax after work is fun, but getting drunk is not necessary.
    -nobody needs liquor to get a buzz on. Drinks with such a high alcohol content are dangerous.

    Proposal:
    -purchasers of any alcoholic liquid with a content higher than 5% must be registered with the state in which the alcohol was purchased. This allows for the rights of people to consume alcohol, but keeps the dangerous alcohol out of the wrong hands.
    -container sizes for liquids containing alcohol shall be limited to 11 ounces. This makes sure that people don't consume too much out of one container.
    -finally, person-to-person transfers of alcohol shall be registered. Buying the girl at the bar a drink is just too risky, since we have no idea what that girl is capable of doing.

    None of these proposals would require congressional approval and are all within my purview as President of the United States.

    Regards,
    Barak Obama

    What about the rumor that you got your, now, wife drunk to get her knocked up and then again to get her to agree to be married to you?

    Is it true that you while you believe that alcohol should be regulated you're still against regulating the use of cocaine by members of congress?
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    That was not directed at the OP, it was directed at the "author" of the letter.

    Actually that should be 10 ounces (7 in New York).

    And a background check should be performed for each drink served - including a breathalyzer test which will be sent to the ATF - even at backyard barbecues (don't want any BBQ loophole).
    No right is held more sacred, or is more carefully guarded, by the common law than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law.

    There should be a limit on high capacity containers and dispensers that use high capacity containers. No dispensers should be allowed to hold more than 10 shots. Also an all out ban on dispensers that look like they can use high capacity containers.

    We all speak of liberty and freedom like we are the only ones that know the truth and the right path. But if we expect everyone to accept and follow our path and to accept our truth and want to force it upon them then that is no longer liberty or freedom. It is slavery. I believe in liberty for all. Regardless of their political views, religion, race, sex, etc.

    DiFi will start on this issue after she has dried up the supply of evil guns.

    I wonder, will Biden and Obama have the secret service drink for them?

    Does my prior drinking/drunkenness get grandfathered in?

    Why the hell would anybody need a keg? Unless it's for a government party.
