The operation could move from bar to bar, even on a published schedule, so no one business could complain about unfair targeting.
Seems like shooting fish in a barrel is better than casting the net.
How about those on the road after drinking at private homes?
Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.
Kind of like on the internet forums - People continually flip someone off who they know is obligated to not break the rules in response. Yeah, usually that type of stupidity eventually yields the rewards that are earned.
And then there are those trying so hard to be offended that they're imagining things that haven't even been said in a thread.
