Watertown's Former Five-Term Mayor Offers His Take on Life in the North Country and Beyond
Exactly what age do you believe drinking should be tolerated?And sometime you should outline your moral boundaries on smoking, drinking, drugs and sex for all your readers. We get nuggets here and there but never a comprehensive layout.
Dear 18 year oldHere is a rifle and bullets son, go on yonder and kill for your freedom...Wanna listen to music and have a cold beer... That will cost you your freedomSincerely, Adolf Cuomo
9:35, I will speak for myself. 18. It was reasonable, practical, and made sense. Listen dufus, twelve year olds are on birth control. Many have already had their first abortion. Get over yourself.
It never ceases to amaze me how we as a society continue to force young people to use drugs, based on the whims of the automobile insurance lobby, Incredible waste of human life all based on one small profit motive group.
3:33, don't even try going there. We all know drug problems drop from trees while people are out walking with their grandparents. They just be victims. Puke
Where are the parents. They could save their children the heartaches that come from drinking alcohol, and possible even save lives. Watching 5 children grow up in a home where the father was killed by a drunk driver, is very sobering.
Now that Obamacare covers them until they are 26, they should be able to get some counselors. And cupcakes...cupcakes for each snowflake.
WTF does drunk driving have to do with drinking before you're 21? Get over it. It's an insurance driven scam that is destroying the lives of literally millions of young people in our country. Young people have been experimenting with intoxication since the first Apple, it's just now that we force them to do it with dangerous products. We could cut our drug problem in half overnight, and any assumption that it would put more impared young people on the road is absurd.Do you really think kids high on heroin are better drivers than kids who had a drink ? Sheeple .
We should consider carefully the end result of mandating and policing certain social issues. Albeit a serious issue which needs to be addressed by parents,teachers, and through various other social forums, the notion of legislating a drinking age is quite irrational. The notion that we label thousands of young adults as criminals for drinking underage,in order to manipulate a societal trend is alarming. Taken further, we incarcerate thousands of young people and label them as felons, for engaging in the very same activities that many of us did so at the same age in the spirit of "finding ourselves" and growing up. What is the price we pay for this phantom protection of society? Who are we protecting ourselves from?
Exactly @10:19 PM and 8:13 AMThere is way more drug abuse, then alcohol abuse in this age bracket. There is a difference between having a beer and getting drunk. In other countries the legal drinking age is 18 years and I do not think they have more problems as we have. Actually less, because it takes the fun out for college kids to do something forbidden, when legal drinking at age 18 is allowed. I also think it would curb down allot of illegal drug use.
