The CDC Thinks You Drink Too Much

You’d think that big bureaucratic monoliths wouldn’t mind a sauced populace to keep the people’s mind off of big bureaucratic monoliths, but the CDC is different — it cares about you.  Their latest report shows that American’s drink way too much.  Shocker, I know!

We here in America don’t really half-ass things like drinking.  If we’re going to drink, it becomes our night.  In Europe, they’re generally semi-sauced all the time, stepping it up around soccer games.  But we Americans choose the time, place, and level of our drinking more discriminantly  — we’re busy so we have to fit it in.  You decide which you prefer:  the constant day-long buzz or the occasional night-long binge.  Your liver hates you either way.

At the end of the day I do agree that the CDC’s conclusions are ultimately not cool, but trying to wean people off drinking is an issue our society has been dealing with for centuries.  All anyone can really do is to be a positive influence to others on this issue.  But why do I have a feeling some almighty government initiative is brewing over this.
