It’s one of those things we’ve probably all wondered about at some point. Just how alcohol soaked is the United States?
I began to ponder this question after seeing recently broadcast cell phone video footage of a gang rape executed in broad daylight of a young woman, passed out cold in her beach chair, by other drunk partiers during spring break in Florida. What was most outrageous was that bystanders turned their backs to the incident and just kept on drinking. These college girls standing around on the beach, all with cocktails in hand, could not be bothered by the fact that one of their peers was being sexually assaulted while passed out cold in a drunken black out, on display for all to see.
It counts as one of the lowest, most infuriating moments recently caught on camera in the life of the average American college student while on “Spring break.” It’s also a really good reason to yank your girl out of college completely, turn off the money faucet, put her to work, and let her pay for her own orgy of excess if she wants a college education. Parents should get a clue. And if they can’t, then they need to be ready for the return of their newly alcoholic ‘college educated’ daughter or son, when they come home after graduation to live in the basement, still drinking like wild sailors on leave. Many will return home hooked on the frothy 100 PROOF libations they learned to guzzle while half-assedly earning a questionable college degree on your nickel. I’m just saying, folks.
