Coronavirus Lockdown And Restrictions Spike Kansas City Alcohol Sales & Abuse

Kansas City has a vibrant and often irrationally exuberant booze culture along with far too many purveyors and facilitators of liquored up good times . . . Accordingly, whilst this article talks about firewater sales as the saving grace of beleaguered restaurants; the uptick in drunkenness is creating other unforeseen and negative consequences on public health . . .

Drinking Has Surged During The Pandemic. Do You Know The Signs Of Addiction?

Despite the lack of dine-in customers for nearly two and half long months during the shutdown, Darrell Loo of Waldo Thai stayed busy. Loo is the bar manager for the popular restaurant in Kansas City, Mo., and he credits increased drinking and looser liquor laws during the pandemic for his brisk business.

Drinking has surged simply because to many folks are losers and sitting in a stupor is to them fun over say doing stuff with the family

Booze helps drown out the reality that no matter how many new shiny buildings and toys taxpayers are forced to pay for KCMO is still a decaying city.

It's sad the Democrat Party and the MSM media are destroying our country with the COVID-19 hysteria, pitting blacks against whites, pitting blacks against law and order, creating anarchy and riots; spending every second of news coverage with attacks on a duly elected President.

People from every country want to immigrate to the United States because of our freedoms, individual rights, economy, educational opportunities and safety for their families from drug cartels and terrorism (otherwise known as law and order).

However, because the Democrat Party could not win the presidency in a free election; they are destroying the country to re-take power. The Democrat Party and media have set race relations back 50 years and that is what this evil party wants. Division and strife; no concern for the destruction of a great, freedom loving country.

The intentional division of the races by the Democrat Party is to control Blacks who vote 95% for the Democrat Party. The economy was great six months ago with unemployment at only 2%; more Blacks employed than ever.

The Democrat Party leaders could not stand for a Republican President to bring success to their party base.

The leaders of the Democrat Party were afraid of this success as they knew Trump was going to be re-elected and thus they unleashed their thugs to destroy our democracy.

Apparently the Democrat Party is now coordinating with the Communist Chines Tik Tok to spread misinformation to the masses.

Very sad, and now the Democrat Party; like the Bolshevisks in 1917 have unleashed a never ending reign of terror and destruction. No one wins in a civil war.

7:54 has it right. Drinking is for losers no matter the path they came from.

Genetics aside alcohol dries out the insides of a body, overworks the liver, alters the mind and reflexes for starters.

Body cries out for more cause it doesn't know what else to do, liver never repairs itself from alcohol damage and who knows how long it takes to repair brain cells and function, if ever.

Been going on for ages, why quit?

^^OK Boomer. You wouldn't know a good time if it sat on your face. Go somewhere else CHUD.

"OK Boomer," “Geezer” or another variation used in a disparaging tone = the new N-word equivalent phrase that tries to diminish and dehumanize the elderly and make them sound stupid in a “hip” way. Imagine if people started saying, "OK N****r." Age discrimination and elder abuse are alive and well in America, and these issues are as disgusting, shameful and wrong as racism.

I have a three fingers o' scotch every night, sometimes I do wonder if that is considered an addiction. I suppose I would stop if needed, but there doesn't appear to be any downsides other than empty calories right before bed. I would bet that Millie for all his slinging hate and accusations at everyone, with all his false sense of superiority, drinks at bars every time his mom gives him the credit card hoping that somehow, in some way or another, he gets laid.

^^OK Boomer. Nobody asked about your wretched life. Refrain from posting anything personal ever again. We don't care. OK Boomer?

Boomer Hater / Chud guy used to get deep throat by Grandpa behind the woodshed on the family farm.

Then Grandpa made Boomer Hater go inside and watch Matlock while Grandpa rode him doggy-style.

He has been a bitter lad ever since and lashes out about Matlock every chance he gets. Cross-dresses and became a Democrat like all Democrat men are.

^^OK Boomer. Go pull your limp pud elsewhere.

Booze is a drug. Drinkers are drug users. Maybe to various degrees, but they are drug users. We keep it legal, like cigs, knowing there is no upside to its use. How many idiots are laying flat on their backs, in their graves, cause they thought cigs were "healthy" due to the ads in the 50's and 60's. Breathing in hot smoke is healthy in what way? Fools! Same for drinkers!

^^OK Boomer. Bye bye now.

Oh and 1 more thing : alcoholism is an ADDICTION (like cocaine use). Its NOT a disease (as A.A. calls it, which is a huge excuse to let drunks off the hook and feel better about themselves).

^^Blah blah blah. Shut it CHUD. You're not a doctor. You're a broken, buted, bitter, geriatric fucktard. You don't know shit!

Boomer: booze is bad. Alcohol is the standard for killing germs, bacteria, other living things too. Its a poison to anything living. Even the yeast that produces it is killed when the level reaches a certain point. Alcohol is actually the byproduct/urine of yeast that has consumed food (barley).its microbial urine. Yes boomer.urine

Boomer, you enjoy your booze and it will slowly rot your mind and guts. Its bad for you.

Shut it down. Nothing historic there but dilapidated buildings. Bad design and virtually no businesses there.

Booze is for weak people that can't deal with life without it. In the movie "Arthur", his future father-in-law said " I dont drink, it effects judgement". How true. How many women got knocked up cause they were drunk with a stranger?
