My state legalized alcohol delivery and alcohol to go from bars last year for that reason.
You have to look into how successful that was. Who'd order a cocktail to be delivered?
Ordering a bottle of wine or a six of beer would cost way too much more than a liquor store that it would be a little bit of a help, but I'd doubt it would do much for revenue.

Some do. A lot of the places around ours went under. Three restaurants in the same building with us closed. If a place was not setup to do delivery they may have had a hard time with closing their dining rooms. The restaurant next to us was really a bar and made their money from alcohol/beer sales and the food was just to keep people drinking and watching sports on TV. Didn't work out in a year of takeout and delivery.
Fair.

Shutting the country down hurt the small businesses and Joe's policies will do the same. It's generic in statement, but what did Joe do? offer 2000 in stimulus, roll it back to 1400 and then left the total the same. The needy didn't get helped, but Donors did, just like with Obama and Solyndra.

Solyndra received a $535 million U.S. Department of Energy loan guarantee, the first recipient of a loan guarantee under President Barack Obama's economic stimulus program, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Major investors included George Kaiser
Solyndra - Wikipedia

Kaiser was a fundraiser for the 2008 presidential campaign of Barack Obama, and functioned as a campaign bundler for Obama.[42] At one 2007 event for Obama, he raised more than $250,000.

1. What the hell does Solyndra have to do with the topic?

2. You clearly do not know what the loan guarantee would mean to investors. The fed would cover payments to lenders, not investors. You have a million bucks in shares of Solyndra? Good luck. You would not be able to find a buyer for those shares as the company went under. If you were a bank that had lent money to solyndra, you are probably good.

Does that help you?

The bullshit about Biden and the $2,000 was the same as Trump's plan, except Joe was saying $600 had already gone out to recipients.

1. Ever heard of an example...It's an English language term, so it's foreign to you.

2. Solyndra was a payoff from Obama to George Kaiser.

3. Why did Biden say it then?

An example of what? In fact the loan guarantee didn't help Kaiser at all. It was used to pay back lenders. Is critical thought foreign to you?

$600 + $1400 = $2000. Complicated math, I know...

The Hermit Kingdom's haves and have-nots
While North Korea’s pampered elite enjoy all the trappings of luxury in its capital Pyongyang, most of the country’s population endures grinding poverty and chronic hunger. This week leader Kim Jong-un revealed at the ruling Workers' Party committee that the nation's people are dealing with "tense" food shortages and the price of the food that is available is rocketing. A packet of coffee can currently sell for more than $100, and staples such as potatoes, sugar and flour have also been affected. Kim has blamed last year's typhoons, which led to flooding and meant grain targets couldn't be met. And the COVID-19 pandemic has also seen the nation close its borders, shutting off trade from its neighbor China, and increasing an already difficult situation for the country as it is under numerous sanctions due to its nuclear program.

Exchange North Korea with United States and "worker's" with Democrats and this will read the same, and wait till after October and it will be how did Drumcollie know? I knew in 2007 when Pelosi became Speaker? History repeats itself. But you can bank on the (D) telling about Hurricanes, the drought and COVID.

Currently we are seeing "infrastructure" being tossed around but it's nothing but a sham, funding (D) run organizations under the guise of helping those in need. Your 2000 stimulus became 1400 and the amount of the stimulus package wasn't reduced. Meanwhile food, gas, car lumber, steel and many other sectors of the economy are seeing prices rise. We will become, if the left continues, just like North Korea.

Share your thoughts and if you are lefty you will surrender to the points and just insult eh? Or do you actually have a point?
Wow and you attack Representative Omar for comparing US to Israel and Muslim countries.

I guess when you think a Dem is un-American, you Trumpies try to be twice as un-American. No doubt you'll soon be writing love letters to Kim, as you Trumpies are known to do.

Deplorable !

Not sure how it worked out for the stores, I think it was mostly people ordering bottled beer with their food.

Definitely the drinks to go (which is still going on; not sure if you can still get delivery) has been dangerous. Drunk driving as a percentage of total time spent on the road has risen, and our state was already the worst in the nation for drunk driving.
