In yet another example of how there isn’t one ounce of enjoyment that leftists won’t suck out of the lives of Americans, President Joe Biden’s health czar wants to limit the number of beers that people consume to just two per week.
Communist countries have nothing on the current US government when it comes to exerting total control over the lives of citizens and Dr. George Koob, who heads up the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, suggests that a country that was long the shining beacon of freedom to the rest of the world should mimic the authoritarian dictatorship north of the border in setting limits on how much booze Americans are allowed to ingest.
Dr. Koob told the Daily Mail that the USDA could soon revise its advice on alcohol consumption to put it in line with Justin Trudeau’s Canada where citizens of the beer-loving nation are advised that the government finds it acceptable to have a mere two drinks per week.
While the federal bureaucrat is no teetotaler, he admits to knocking back a few glasses of Chardonnay a week, he told the outlet that he’s keeping a close eye on Canada’s “big experiment” in social control after the country recently began to urge people to limit their boozing to two drinks a week.
“If there’s health benefits, I think people will start to re-evaluate where we’re at,” Koob told the outlet.
For decades, US health officials have recommended that women drink only one beer, glass of wine, or liquor drink a day with men advised to have two, but the guidelines are up for review in 2025, and considering the country’s slide into full-blown leftist despotism under Biden and his fellow Democrats, beer drinkers have a good reason for concern.
Asked about what direction the new alcohol guidelines could change, the NIAAA boss told the outlet: “I mean, they’re not going to go up, I’m pretty sure,” adding that if they “go in any direction, it would be toward Canada.”
Twitter/X users uncorked their reactions to the idea that their freedoms will once again be encroached upon by unelected public health officials cut from the same cloth as Dr. Anthony S. Fauci.
Biden’s alcohol czar wants to limit Americans to 2 beers a week under strict booze guidelines. But Democrats are fine with shooting heroin in the streets. Makes sense. @NIAAAnews #DrGeorgeKoob #DemocratsAreDestroyingAmerica

Just in time for football season, Biden’s booze czar suggests a two beer a week limit. Less, for wine drinkers. Think something similar was tried once before….

When in the center of Dante’s 9th circle did somebody appoint an “alcohol czar”?
Do you not know what has driven society for the past 10k years?

Dr. Koob told the Daily Mail that there are “no benefits” to drinking alcohol daily.
“Most of the benefits people attribute to alcohol, we feel they really have more to do with what someone’s eating rather than what they’re drinking,” he said. ‘So it really has to do with the Mediterranean diet, socio-economic status, that makes you able to afford that kind of diet and make your own fresh food and so forth. With this in mind, most of the benefits kind of disappear on the health side.”
The alcohol czar did admit that booze serves a purpose as a “social lubricant” and that he enjoys around two glasses of a “buttery Californian Chardonnay” per week.
