Hey Pigeon Forge “Liquor By The Drink” folks: Hiding behind the slogan of raising money for our school system makes me sick. Just say, I’m in business and I want to maximize profits no matter what the cost. But this “we’re doing this for our schools” is downright dirty politics.

Even my daughter Savannah saw the yard sign by the school and said, “So, if people drink more liquor, we get more money for the school? But in school they tell is not to drink or do drugs. What’s next? Legalized pot so we can tax it too?”

Smart kid, just like her daddy.
