And maybe the government can't track the State's that make their own booze. We have an influx of every State here right now. Did ya ever think of that? Apparently NOT.

So that's what your problem is. Just say so. I have my very own Health Insurance. Apparently you do not. And you want me to pay for you Health Insurance. I have always kept up my premiums every month. What have you done to take care of yourself? Other than whine. Obama Care is not FREE by the way.

The #1 beer drinking state is also the state most opposed to the new health care law.

The Beer Gut staters want to stick with the old "Emergency Room" system -- where hospital bills for their liver disease is someone else's problem.

As a former alcoholic in North Dakota, I haven't had a beer or anything else alcoholic in 27 years.

So namexxx is wrong and it hasn't been the first time either.

Good on ya, Missy!

Speaking of incoherent, why don't you go pester someone in your own state.

These arguments are incoherent nonsense -- proving, once again, that you're a bunch of drunks.

That's the reality.

Don't like that reality? Stop guzzling beer.

"I'm referring to the state of North Dakota."

So in namexxx's mind, each and every resident of North Dakota makes up what he calls "a bunch of drunks."

I guess I'll call the entire Democrat Party a bunch of philanderers, because some have been guilty of the practice.

A broad brush it is we wield, when we wish to persuade the field...

They are probably just celebrating receiving their oil checks.

Who else would you expect guzzles down the most beer? The entire state is fueled by alcohol, meth and racism.

This state also has one of the highest suicide rates for middle aged men.

Figure it out folks. The good times are killing you.

who says cops are not enforcing the DUI law???? when is the last time you heard about someone getting off scott free from a dui. The days of an officer pulling you over and saying, "hey son, just go ahead and walk the rest of the way" are over. That does not happen anymore and law enforcement take DUI's very seriously when they catch someone. Now they can't just go and pull people over without a reason, so of course drunk driver are still going to be on the road, but some of you need not condemn law enforcement claiming they don't enforce the law, they do.

This survey is for beer. I'm guessing North Dakota is not number one for Wine, or Vodka, etc... it is for just one alcoholic beverage. So don't push the panic button just yet.

Before anyone gets into a panic, think about this poll for a moment...

ND is in the midst of a oil boom that has brought many men to an area of the state where, it could be argued, there's nothing better to do than drink. It's similar to how smoking becomes so popular in the military.

Is it really that big a mystery as to how ND leads the country in per capita beer shipments?

And of course this is the case, all the hard workers are here in ND making all the money. Of course there is going to be more alcohol sales, just like there is more food sales, more fuel sales, the movie theater seems to be pretty pack every weekend. i'm sure we get more shipments of much more than just alcohol due to our economy here. When people have money, they tend to buy stuff, that's how this country works and it's a good thing.
