Also it appears that you want the government to treat the tribes and the reservations as "nanny states" rather than letting them try to govern themselves. Also for the non tribal residents that live in the surrounding area who is to say that they are not allowed to consume alcohol.

In regards to suing the alcohol manufacturers and it having a drastic impact in the public spotlight, it would only last about a week. Remember Apple's big win against Samsung for well over a billion dollars? Huge patent lawsuit that has pretty much disappeared from the public spotlight.

You can't compare the smoking bans to this in the broader impact. With the smoking ban it was just a minor inconvenience for the patrons to walk outside and smoke rather than at the bar or table. We are talking about 50 miles not 50 feet.

I'm sorry but banning alcohol outside of the rez for a radius of 50 miles is just ridiculous and way too far left statist nonsense. Again that would set up a nanny state situation which means the tribes can't even govern themselves.

I'd type more but I've got to leave now. I will be back on later.

We can not win a battle of words in here. I posted what I thought were very clear demonstrations about why liquor should not be sold in, around or near any reservation. If its available, it will only make matters worse. However, be that as it may, please accept the fact we both have our own opinions and there is no reason for either of us or any other member in here to take what I say either out of context or simply the wrong way.

This issue will resolve itself and not in here in these forums. As for the nanny comment. I can see where you are going with that. However, the last thing I am is some extremist with crazy delusions of the government of the United States looking out after us. I agree its a tribal, reservation issue and must be dealt with by the people of those respective nations and reservations. The last thing we need is more governmental nonsense. No arguments there. Not even a debate.

BTW I enjoy reading your replies. You, Zeke, Wardancer and others are giving me an education in here. The last thing I want is to cause any of you to dislike me or not communicate with me. Thanks.........
