blah, blah, blah - again- harping on the same ole same ole of a handful of incompetents which you will find in ANY system that is Gov't or Private. You can't judge a whole system by a few people. Again - the MAJORITY are upstanding people and the System itself is unlike any other State Control System. NC works and is a good thing. So what you are saying is the Local Gov't that appoint these people are corrupt. So why aren't we PRIVATIZING the Local Govern't's if that's where the problem is??? Use your head, it's idiotic.
I get so sick of seeing people comment on things that they don't have the facts on. Not only on this issue but many issues.
Facts: ABC employees are NOT State employees, do not get paid by the government and do NOT receive State benefits. As a matter of fact - they get LESS benefits. The majority also receive average pay. Some even below average wages.
The State does not have one dime invested in the ABC system - it is SELF FUNDED and operates on the money made by selling a product.
ABC gives away its net- profits to the County, the Towns, Law Enforcement, and Alcohol Rehab organiz. NO private business would ever do that.
Taxes would have to be so high to reimburse what the Local Gov'ts get annually from ABC - that people wouldn't be able to afford a bottle.
People that believe NC should be private - don't know or don't want to know the facts (or are just plain ignorant). NC ABC is a free cash cow for the Local Governments - helping to make their budgets and saving you possible higher taxes.
The media doesn't make it any better by providing only bad reflections of a handful of idiots within the system. The majority are hardworking, ethical, trying to make a living like you individual.
BAD NEW SELLS - GOOD NEWS DOESN'T - and I'm sick of it!!
