    Rail & Alles Sweet Deal v01

    actualy ,

    Rail & Alles Sour & No so Sweet Deal ,

    all invented by uncle sam ,

    with it alcoholic beverages industry ,

    in the district 12 of the city of saint paul ,

    already many busines that help prolifareate this industry ,

    but also at the expense of people geting drunk ,

    the train , at least the green line LRT ,

    already got as far as i know , in 3 separate incidents with the train system ,

    plus one on Raymond Avenue , in which the van pasangers , 3 were drunk ,

    on that friday night ,

    & worth mentioning , the drunk driver that crashe a large pedal bus & injure people .

    any how , after geting a lot of information by year 2015 , summer ,

    in the 2nd even of Rail & Alleys , promoted by the twin cities ,

    so citizens visit the beer brewries ,

    it sells the even tickes for $30 dollar or more ,

    not sure if they get a free T-shirt , or free ride on the train ,

    but not on the $10 dollar ride of the pedy taxi cab ,

    in case the brewery is either too far , with out or incomplate or broken sidewalks ,

    or people are too dizzy or tire or overweight to walk as a normal person ,

    the pedi cycle drivers , few afro americans , one woman , all not overweighted ,

    did pedal the heavy tricycle & one with trailer , carrying from one to up to 3 per cart or six with trailer & with out electric assistem motor , for about half of a kilometer from the rail line of Raymond Avenu to Edicot street ,

    the city seem expects citizens not to get drunk ,

    so it gives them only two tockents with the even tickets , & can purchase food or drinks ,

    the beers seem run from $ 5 to $6 , a bit expensive & the glass is large ,

    seems at least half a liter they force you to drink more ,

    i though 12 oz [ 355] was the standart , not is 16 oz , 16.9 , 20 & 24 fluid oz.

    the food is also expensive ,

    & how many brewries the citizens end visiting .

    the other problem explained to the staff of the city this same week at the Land Use commite of district # 12 , was that many of these even people last year were seen any of the following :

    leaving the beer untoched at the side of the road along Hamped Avenue ,

    this year seem they figure to control the exit of the drinks ,
    & not allow drinks to be taken out , seem it did work out ,
    because there were many condor citizens looking for high quality & expensive good beer at the side of the road , for free & fresh ,

    the other future this year 2015 beside the pedic cabs from Chicago & Bogota ,

    were that the drunk participants were walking not only on the road streets ,

    University Avenue but on the train tracks ,

    not sure how that went this year , i only saw some people walking on Hampdem Avenue road , as the sidewalks were not compleate , shifted , narrow .

    all this people are yough , in their 20’s or 30’s , educated , & many overweight ,

    so , i am not sure what the city & health department are trying to do to the citizens , clearly this capitalistic , suposely democratic economic straties ,

    are some how back firing the government & society itself ,

    one benefit , was that those people were not using a car , not driving ,

    that is realy important , it would be like to allow to play with fire , a gun ,
    but with out matches & bullets ,

    still , we are far from a real sound & smart way of doing busines with the society ,

    uncle sam profit so much & so manipulative , controlling , capitalistic ,

    & with out the need to vote on behave or againt those stratigies ,

    i think many would have reject the LRT Green line & the liquore stores & beer brewries in their district , but no , the city , state & city council ,

    manage ways to by pass that proces , i do not know , we do not know if this is democracy or just pure bold blont capitalism monopoly mafia gang members ,

    between the industires & uncle sam .
