Promoting reckless alcoholism?
Fire it up, bomb it, out of control, yo!
The way our laws work in this country these days is very interesting. We legalize a substance that is obviously a hindrance to society (alcohol) – yet have laws that punish people for consuming too much – and at the same time allow establishments such as our very own Dubliner to ferociously promote what I consider reckless drinking!
Just looking at this “Bomb-a-Thon” sign at the Dubliner makes me think – “what does any “a-thon” promote?”
Well it promotes long-term and excessive anything! Whether it’s Jerry Lewis donations, kinky sex, or liver damage – to dim-witted lemmings this means “Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! More! More! More!”
Many of Hoboken’s quality of life issues stem from our abundance of bars and liquor establishments. While this is supposedly good for the local economy (do the local bar owners spend their profits at local businesses? Or do they live out of town and take their money elsewhere?), as well as vehicular accidents, parking problems, fights, and much more.
I personally don’t care whether a (seemingly logically intelligent human being) decided to ingest booze of any kind.
But do you think the flashy advertisements only entice the less-desireables to come to our town and disrupt us?
Would marketing be best kept elsewhere? Like here on 411? Or in the hardly read alternative outlets?
