Getting smashed at lunch time when you are doing manual work is dangerous. I have worked on building sites with guys that liked to smoke weed all day which is really dangerous.
Getting means smashed at lunch time as an office worker only really means that you might loose your job, not a great move in this difficult economic times.
The big these films is people in the USA complaining about the Government propping up the economy. Which is stupid as the Chinese would soon own all of America if they stopped..... and the Chinese wouldn't tolerate the hysterical bullshit that appears to be Fox News' stock in trade.
