Ken: They will argue "Yes, crime is down, but we need to do better". You know it's ridiculous, I know its ridiculous, but people are in love with laws and authority.

@Eckermann: I get the part about drinking, and while I don't drink I recognize that many do, and will drink, and apart from knowing it's not a healthy habit, have no problem with people doing so. (My vice is overeating) What I have an issue with is when people make a premeditated decision to drive to an event where they know they will be drinking, and then drive home. Why is "Don't drink and drive" such a hard concept to grasp?
Here is another pardox: We know that drinking, smoking, overeating, and doing drugs isn't good for you, but while our society discourages smoking/overeating/doing drugs, for some reason it glorifies drinking. Cigarette commercials were banned decades ago, (although vapor cigarette commericals are airing--with the argument that they are not as harmful as conventional cigarettes) but just about every ad is about alcohol. Through education the number of smokers in our culture has dropped considerably, yet ads for booze continue and then people are shocked when drunk drivers kill people.

Eckermann: While I'm being the Devil's Advocate, perhaps Beachgirl77 is a liberal who simply is at odds with Lois Capps' actions in office. Certainly, there can be dissent among those within a political party.
As for Capps' role in the subject at hand, it was ultimately Morua who made the decision to get in his vehicle after drinking, not Capps' decision. The real issue is that we live in a culture where booze is glorified and one isn't considered part of the "in crowd" unless they are seen drinking.
This issue cuts way too deep into the heart of our culture for people to be able to confront the real problem, so Capps (for whom I have never voted) is made a scapegoat by those who have other differences with her.

What about that booze party Morua was at just before the accident? No guilty consciences there?

really loon? the dude who says the govt was involved in 9/11, sandy hook fakery, and a fake moon landing....
alrighty then. this conversation has pretty much peaked.

It hasn't truly peaked until someone invokes Godwin's Law by mentioning Hitler.
I would like to add however--to Loon's comments--by talking about the little green Commies who infiltrate my dreams and the current state of Indy car racing. I think it would be in keeping with how this thread has devolved.
