Revoke their business liscence - 1st time.
I know this is off topic a little, but I still don't understand the
rationale of having to be 21 to drink? You can join the military and die for
your country; you can vote, sign a contract, and generally be considered "of
age" at 18. But you can't order a drink? Either the drinking age
needs to be reduced back to 18, or you cannot engage in the previous activities
until you are 21. And just for the record, I don't drink.
Obama10, you used to be able to drink at any age on a military post if you
served. That changed in the mid 80s. You can legally order a drink
on a minors drivers license if the birthdate shows that you are over 21, so the

driver's license and was served" may not be fully accurate.
Bars serving underage patrons?!?!? Shocking!Didn't the
proponents of spreading more booze around promise this wouldn't happen?

large fines, loss of license, increased civil liability, etc. Serving to minors
is not about freedom of choice, it's about restaurant profit at the
If you really want to make a impact make the fine for both the person buying and
the person serving. If a bartender or waitress looses $1500.00 they will check
I question Valentine's stats. A LOT. Isn't he one of the legislators
that proposed a few bills based on what a bishop told him that he had heard?
These stings-ever see one of these under aged decoys? Balding at 19 & big.
They look like they are 30. Valentine has an obsession with alcohol. I wish he
had the same dedication to corrupt Utah politicians.
