Off Topic Arrested In A Bar

Absolute Ridiculousness (Is That A Word?)

Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said on Wednesday.

“There are a lot of dangerous and stupid things people do when they’re intoxicated, other than get behind the wheel of a car,” Beck said. “People walk out into traffic and get run over, people jump off of balconies trying to reach a swimming pool and miss.”

Seriously, at least present a more sound excuse for the sudden enforcement than what is provided above. If I MIGHT jump off MY balcony and miss MY swimming pool do we really want the government to step in to ‘protect’ me.

Before long if you’re taking a prescription medicine or drinking anywhere you’re not going to be able to leave your padded room.

God forbid I get drunk in the privacy of my own home, forget to turn off my stove and burn my house and maybe my neighbor’s down. Some law enforcement agency better take some preemptive action…and soon.
