Sen. McSally Must Avoid the Trap of Counterproductive Prescription Drug Legislation

Senator Martha McSally (R - Arizona) has broadly proven herself a stalwart ally of conservatives, libertarians and the Trump Administration in her brief tenure on Capitol Hill.  A former U.S. Air Force A-10 pilot, her votes have confirmed President Trump's phenomenal array of judicial nominees and advanced his economic agenda to bring us arguably the greatest economic conditions in history.

A Colorado woman is suing an Aspen restaurant after allegedly being served too much cheap tequila.

Julia Penny of Wood Creek, Colorado, filed a small-claims lawsuit against upscale restaurant Casa Tua claiming she was served so much alcohol she ended up in the hospital.  Penny is seeking damages of $3,770, equivalent to her bill from the Aspen Valley Hospital.

According to news reports, Penny was served a margarita in a tall glass and that the bartender, who was quite busy, mistakenly added too much alcohol.

“I totally got overpoured,” Penny said. “It could’ve been the fact that it was cheap tequila. I thought maybe I had been drugged or something.”
The blood work showed that she had ingested five or so shots of tequila. Penny said she filed the lawsuit because the restaurant management was ignoring her.
“I went out for dinner that night and ended up in the emergency room,” Penny said. “I’m just very angry.”
