Alcohol and War

they're more likely to press down on the throttle

if influenced by the demon who's caught in the bottle


prevent the shotgun weddings of

alcohol and war, alcohol and

death, alcohol and disease,

alcohol and violence

The biggest breweries in the United

States are heavy contributors to

the current regime, and through

their cash influence have gotten

several radio networks to promote

alcohol consumption ads as early

as 11 am on weekdays.

Coors and Anheuser Busch are

2 major alcohol marketers.

Many soldiers returning from war

attempt to tune out the hideous

violence witnessed through

alcohol and drugs.

According to writer Anita Sheve,

consuming 1/2 of a bottle of alcohol

can cause blindness, kidney shutdown, lethal choking on vomit.

Physicians cite the cirrhosis of the

liver, delirium tremens, and loss

of brain cells in general.

Other problems caused by

alcohol include

domestic battering, barroom fights

with broken bottles, the cleanup

from vomit, fires as smokers

lose consciousness,

millions of traffic fatalities, decapitations

included, paraplegics, faces

made into roadmaps by

windshield glass shattering,

busted marriages, smashed careers,

and according to some,

demonic possession from the

melting of the aura. Alcoholism

related depression generates

billions in multinational pharmaceutical


Alcoholics are often more compassionate

people than average. The alcohol

is their vehicle to tune out the pain

they seem to vacuum up from

those around them.

Fraternities, restaurants,

and corporate media promote

alcohol consumption for reasons

such as peer pressure and money.

Sometimes, even the sight of

someone drinking on tv or

a description of this in a book is

enough to kick the viewer or

reader off of years of abstinence.

Northern countries faced with

the cold, light loss, and inactivity of winter

have more alcoholism than southern


The Salvation Army over 100 years

ago treated alcoholism through

vegetarian diet, since the excess

yang of meat was offset by the

excess yin of booze.

However, the Army has gotten away

from its vegetarian roots.

Some religions prohibit

alcohol consumption but 'thou shalt not'

can have the opposite effect.

Coors funded the Heritage Foundation

which has countless times promoted

war on National Public Radio and

other war profiteer controlled media.

Through its connection to organized

sports, Coors has arranged that

every time a Denver stadium is

mentioned, it gets a free ad.

In addition, Coors pays for

placement in books marketed by

Rupert Murdoch's HarperCollins

and others. Coors was a factor

in Diebold's theft of the Colorado

senate race. Ben Nighthorse

Campbell before that had run

as a Democrat and then switched.

oe E Lewis:

"A man is never drunk if he can lay on the floor without holding on."


"O God, that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains! That we should with joy, pleasance, revel, and applause transform ourselves into beasts!"


"It provokes the desire but it takes away the performance. Therefore much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery: it makes him and it mars him; it sets him on and it takes him off."

Edward Rowland Sill:

"At the punch-bowl's brink, let the thirsty think, what they say in Japan: first the man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the man!"

Sir William Temple:

"The first glass is for myself, the second for my friends, the third for good humor, and the forth for my enemies."

Erma BombecK:

"Never accept a drink from a Urologist."

AA Lead:

I awoke, irate that people were entering my bedroom, which turned out to

be the elevator.

Bertrand Russell:

     "Alcohol whipped me. Alcohol and I had many marvelous times together. We laughed, we talked, we danced at the party; then one day I woke up and the band had gone home and I was lying in the broken glass with a shirt full of puke and I said, 'Hey, man, the ball game's up,'"    ----   Harry Crews

      "I have drunk since I was fifteen and few things have given me more pleasure. When you work hard all day with your head and know you must work again the next day what else can change your ideas and make them run on a different plane like whisky? When you are cold and wet what else can warm you? Before an attack who can say anything that gives you the momentary well being that rum does? I would as soon not eat at night as not to have red wine and water. The only time it isn't good for you is when you write or when you fight. You have to do that cold. But it always helps my shooting. Modern life, too, is often a mechanical oppression and liquor is the only mechanical relief."  ---    Earnest Hemmingway
