Wine and whine

Reading “Scott Wilk boozy bill hiccup” (Sept 14 in The Signal) had me wondering if I was reading a 13-year-old’s Facebook post with an attempt at being clever.

Author Gary Horton issued many juvenile quips served up with a dose of hysteria.

He is bizarrely affected by California Assemblyman Scott Wilk co-sponsoring AB1322, which permits such businesses as beauty salon services the option of offering guests one free 6-ounce glass of wine or one 12-ounce beer, without legal penalties.

Spas would be able to offer a mimosa along with chocolate and strawberries for Mothers Day or for a bridal party.
Horton assumes proprietors will leap to breaking the law and topping off the glass, then he concludes there’ll be “100,000 more drivers under the influence” causing overall mayhem and resulting in our kids having bad livers and kidneys.

Horton’s conclusions tell what he thinks of us and our fellow residents. We are so weak and shallow we can be bought for a glass of wine, and that glass will lead to everyone morphing into alcoholics

Yep, that’ll make most of us change hairdressers and spas.

In the scope of all things threatening in California, this is the big concern?

Horton urged everyone to write in protest to Gov. Jerry Brown because Brown’s the “Grownup in the Room.”

Yes, write to Grownup Governor Moonbeam, who signed off on anyone able to breathe and ambulate the freedom to buy “medical marijuana” with a “prescription” often gotten over the phone with no office visit or proof of illness.

These users also get behind the wheel and are the same ones swinging through the revolving doors of Brown’s Prop 47 jail system as “low level drug users.”

It’s curious that Horton is mum on Proposition 64 on the November 2016 ballot, which will legalize recreational use of marijuana in California.
