Now that we settled that, lets settle the matter at hand. I have very strong opinions about why liquor should NOT be sold in, around or near reservations. It has allot to do with cultural breakdown. Its easy for many to dismiss this as an individual decision/ choice and that is part of the problem. However, the larger problem is that the liquor is made available right there next to the res. Its inviting and tempting. Which in itself is obviously hard to resist. Personal decisions are not excuses for the problems caused by those natives that drink and have alcoholism. Or get into a wreck and kill someone for example. Does the person(s) killed have a choice? Do they? I strongly oppose alcohol being distributed in any form near a res period. If I haven't made that clear enough then I am sorry. That is my opinion and I have the right to express them in this forum even if I "write and talk" like a white man.

mr walkswithhorse,

you are entitled to your opinion of alcohol being sold near a reservation.

What have you done...personally...other than express your opinion...to stop something you so vehemently oppose?
