Interesting essay on the drinking age

Our Drinking Laws on Minors Must Change

He brings up some very good points. I agree with him mostly.

Re: Interesting essay on the drinking age

just like sex in america, its normal to see nudity over there, here, we see a boob slip on the superbowl and you have 20 different interest groups going ape****. its just a ****ing boob, we all have them, half of the population's are larger and funner to grab then the other half's, unless youre a fat dude with manboobs with a skinny IBTC girlfriend............

but yeah, most definately. No laws against drinking age. then it would be up to the parents to instill the values of responsibility to their children, but then again looking at most the parents these days, maybe it is better we have these rules for now. hopefully our generation will be responsible enough to teach our kids right, but im probably reaching on that one as well.

Re: Interesting essay on the drinking age

He's definitely on to something there.

As far as I'm concerned, if you're old enough to vote and die for your country, you should have all of the other freedoms that come with turning 18.

..... then again, I also say that if you're able to drive at 16 (which you are here), plus you're in high school and are expected to make decisions that supposedly will affect the rest of your life (or at least what you'll do right after high school), you should be able to vote for the leader of your country/state/province/city/county as well - there's certainly less important or dangerous things that a 16 year old could do. Along with that, the young offenders act should also be dropped to the driving age because if you're not knowledgeable enough to know by 16 (or whatever age you can get licenced in your area) that assault, murder, robbery, etc is wrong, then why should you be allowed to drive a vehicle?

Re: Interesting essay on the drinking age

most young kids dont have the responsibility to drink~ thats why they make you wait but... you will do what ever you want to do regardless of what is legal.

Re: Interesting essay on the drinking age

yeah, I've long agreed with the: if you can fight and die for your country, you should have unlimited adult rights. But his other points are definitely interesting.
