Day by Day

So, just to be clear...

...the Democrats in Texas are demanding that a drunk-driving alcoholic DA who is in charge of the Public Integrity Unit be allowed to keep her job despite the drunk-driving, cop-abusing behavior, and attempts by Gov. Rick Perry are illegal in their book.

Oh, and this drunk-driving Democrat DA wasn't just drunk, she was friggin' hammered.  To whit, a .238 BAC.

.238.  Blood.  Alcohol.  Content.

Lemme tell y'all a story about younger Dave, m'kay?  Younger Dave, back when he was an MP, had gone through DUI detection and deterrence courses, and as such, was volunteered to be the drinker at the upcoming DUI detection course.  In short, they have people get drunk so that other MP's can do the field sobriety tests on them, and thus learn just what a drunk person looks like while taking field sobriety tests.  On top of that, you have to determine the person's BAC within a certain percentage just from the field sobriety tests, and in order for that to happen, the person you're testing has to have an actual BAC.

So Dave drank.  And drank.  Keep in mind that when I was younger, this was not an unknown thing for me.  I was a hard drinker when I was younger; probably borderline alcoholic.  I could drink a lot of folks under the table.  Not everybody, but most people.

So I did thirteen shots of Southern Comfort 101.  That's 101 proof SoCo.  50.5% alcohol.  In three hours.

Folks, I was hammered.  I had a hard time walking.  I could speak, but not well.

At the three hour mark, they took my BAC with a breathalyzer test.  It was a .133 BAC.

.133 after thirteen shots in three hours.  And again, I was hammered.  I was drinking on the Army's time, and damn if I wasn't going to do the best drinking I could do!  But I couldn't walk, and I damn sure wasn't even going to think about driving.  They took my BAC an hour later and I was a .113 BAC, and that's STILL too damn drunk to drive.

So trust me when I say that if someone has reached a .238 BAC and they are still upright, they have been getting drunk each day, every day, every week, for years and years on end.  For this woman to be DRIVING with a .238 BAC means that she has been doing this more than once.  More than twice. Hell, I'm willing to bet that she gets behind the wheel with a snoot-full at least once or twice a week, because she has been drinking hard-core for YEARS.  I would hazard a guess that she's downing a fifth of liquor a night, or at least close to that amount.

And then she goes for a drive.

Hey, just the person you want as your DA, right?  Just the person you want running the Public Integrity Unit, right?  Well, only if you're a Democrat in Texas, I guess.  So every time you hear about Rick Perry being indicted, just remember that the Texas Democrats are demanding that a drunk-driving DA be allowed to keep her job AND be in charge of the Public Integrity Unit.

I can only add "Yeah, what he said".

I'm all in favor of this

Insty, commenting on how to demilitarize the police:

A simple rule would be to provide that police can have only weapons that a civilian could lawfully possess, since they’re civilians themselves.

Of course, it would have to be weapons available to ALL civilians, not just the politically favored ones.

Hey, did you hear the one about....

....the Reuters "journalist" who fell face down on Obama's crotch and gave him a blowjob right on the front page?

No?

Well, here it is.

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama is loosening restrictions on lobbyists who want to serve on federal advisory boards, a White House official said on Tuesday, a setback to the president's efforts to tamp down special interest influence in Washington.
Feel the spin.  Feel it!  Good God, they can't even bring themselves to admit what he's doing!  Obama's actions are a "setback" to Obama's efforts?  As Instapundit likes to say, the Media in this country is nothing more than Democrat American Communist Party advocates with bylines.

!!!!!

Excuse me, I need a drink.

A thousand times, this.

Erin Palette in the comments yesterday made a statement that I'd like to repeat:

"YOU SELFISH MOTHERFUCKER YOU ONLY SUCCEEDED IN HURTING THE PEOPLE WHO CARED ABOUT YOU."

Suicide hurts everyone around.  It is probably the single most painful and selfish thing you can do to the people who care about you.  I've had to go to a funeral of a friend who committed suicide, and his poor mother could not understand what had happened.  She would ask me and everyone else why he did it, and we had no answers.

I feel a great deal of pity for Robin Williams, but that pity ends at the point he tied a belt around his neck and stepped off his chair.  I have no doubt he was a tortured soul, but that never excuses ending your own life and transferring that torture to everyone you love.

I won't even get in to the Catholic view of suicide.  Suffice to say that when I called it the "unforgivable sin" I wasn't far off.

So I'm right there with Erin.  Fuck you, Robin Williams, for hurting everyone you loved.  Fuck you for hurting everyone around you.  Fuck you for putting all your friends and family in such pain and grief.  Robin Williams committed one of the most selfish acts in the world, and there is no amount of depression on his part that can excuse the pain and suffering that his family is going through right now.

There is never a happy ending in suicide.  For anyone.

Robin Williams is dead

By suicide.  Dammit.

Folks, suicide is the unforgivable sin.  Just don't do it.  Ever.

Dear Angry Black People in Ferguson, Missouri...

When you are trying to show America that you're not a bunch of rioting thugs, doing things like rioting, vandalism, robbery and attempted murder probably are not the best activities for you to engage in.

I mean, seriously here folks!  How many negative stereotypes can you perpetuate in one night?  Apparently, all of them.  Not good.  Not good at all.  This is like the WTO riots in Seattle, where one rocket scientist got himself photographed vandalizing the Niketown store while wearing...

Nikes.

For those people in Ferguson, MO who are having a little trouble comprehending the concept, here's a handy video from Chris Rock.

Hey, want to know a good way to die?

Get out of your race car and go running down a DIRT TRACK while every other car is still moving, and then try to poke your finger through the window of a MOVING RACE CAR.

Look, I feel sorry for the dead guy's family, but I also feel damn sorry for Tony Stewart.  If this young little hot-headed dipshit had approached Stewart in the pits and socked him in the mouth, that would have been one thing.  But he chased down a MOVING RACE CAR on a DIRT TRACK.

If Stewart cranks his wheel to the left, then his back end fishtails to the right and smacks the kid square in the chest.  If he cranks his wheel to the right, he runs the risk of hitting the kid with his front end.  There was no good place for Stewart to go once this kid jumped into the middle of an ONGOING RACE with MOVING VEHICLES.

I feel sorry that this kid died.  But he caused his own death, sure as if he'd jumped off the Empire State Building.  Tony Stewart isn't to blame for it.
