    and to the dim-whitted below who think the ATF is going to bang down the doors because they had a drink in their home 'afterhours' get a grip. drinking afterhours is NOT illegal. SELLING it is.

    The City of Goldsboro, Goldsboro Police Department, & The Wayne County Court System have allowed Lamar’s to sell after hours for years. And for years, they have all profited from the DUI & drug arrests from the patrons of this establishment. The truth is the city and the court system love drunk – drug addicted illegal residents because they have cash. Once in the system, they end up paying thousands in fines, court costs, attorney fees, probation fees, drug testing fees & the list goes on. If not for the “illegal residents”: the city, police department, and local court system would be broke. You are delusional if you think they are going to be “sent back” to their country of origin.

    Be it Mexicans or Islamic terrorists, liberals just can't accept the blatantly obvious. Liberals will still be shouting down sensible people when it is right in front of their face. If you take while not paying taxes it IS theft. If you kill soldiers in Germany while shouting gibberish about allah, you are a terrorist. People with an above room temp IQ will not have to jump to conclusions. The conclusions are obvious.

    When they break into your home and steal your things you have worked for,or took food out of your family's mouth because they will work for little to no money then it leaves a bad taste in your mouth about the whole race and you want to hurt them the way they hurt you, but you have to let go of the hate and hurt and forgive. now we own our business and only hire people that are legal and trying to make a better life for their family and yes we pay everyone the same and yes my family can in through Ellis Island but MY Birth place is USA so that makes me a US citizen oh and my parents, Great Great Great Grandparents are US citizen and my family member that came over her married a full blooded Indian. so before you go throwing Ellis Island around know your History!!!!

    To the bleeding hearts who so love to take up for the illegals: If you come here legally, you pay and commit to the proper documentation AND you pay taxes to include social security, etc., in support of the country you live in. If you come here illegally, you suck up all of the programs we pay into with our earned dollars and give nothing in return. Working in a field picking sweet potatoes and blowing leaves off of the street for a business DOES hurt the country's economy!! Do some fact finding...and yes I am familiar with the process as my wife is from Canada and she is here legally paying into the system as it should be!!
