      Alcohol related deaths and serious injuries are socially acceptable. Dayton and the DFL legislators promote alcoholism to young impressionable children in the public stadiums by indelibly imprinting the use of the alcohol we sell there with the healthy image of sports. Alcoholism is the future of Socialist Minnesota. Get your children started on alcohol early. Give them a head start.
