Even Clark Howard is throwing punches

ImageEven Clark Howard, today on his national radio program, is throwing punches at the Governor, his lapdop junior house of the General Assembly, and the Senatorial “study committee.” Even Clark Howard thinks we should be able to buy beer on Sunday.

Clark made some good points:

(1) It’s absurd to be doing this over highway safety when the present system encourages those out of beer to go to bars, watch the game there, and then drive home after drinking.

(2) There is a clear statewide consensus from voters according to the polls and the legislature and Governor, as elected representatives of the people, should be doing their bidding.

While I’ve never been a big fan of the second argument, it is true that this issue is popular with Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Hari Krishnas, Frat Boys, Reformed Baptists, Presbyterians, Catholics (of course what do they care, they get wine in church !!!!ON SUNDAY!!!!), Jews, Atheists, legislators when not near the Governor, and crack whores.

It’s a popular issue that the legislature is trying to be fatherish about as if somehow it is more grown up and mature than the people it represents. Meanwhile, they’re up in Atlanta whoring around at night with lobbyists and strippers. (Okay Mr. Legislator who is offended by that last line, (1) lighten up and (2) we’ve *all* heard the bipartisan stories)

    Sonny is like Bush. No matter what the reality, they just KNOW what is best for us all! pfft.

    Oh, I want to know who did the ‘polling’ of the crack whores?

    and what is the margin of error in that demographic?

    I’m sure you can add Libertarians AND libertarians to the list.

    “Follow the money.”

    I’m not sure this issues is about the money, more like follow the votes – Christian Coalition votes to be specific.

    Wow, if Clark Howard is crticising you–and you are not named Bank of America–things are bad.

    And I still quite like the “Lapdog”. Absolutely top-hole Erick!

    Just so you know Erick, we get wine at Mass everyday of the week, not just Sundays. So if you want to see alcohol and church intertwining (rather nicely if I do say so), you could just convert…that is all I am saying…

    Oh come now Erick, the grape is a marvelous fruit!

    Think of how bland a Subway/Blimpie/Jersey Mike’s would be without a dash of vinegar? A fine champagne has not christened the start of yet another year for you? Or perhaps you haven’t spent a summer evening with a large bowl of muscadines (or some Muscat)?

    Surely you jest! That is all I can make of such nonsense, claiming that the honorable and noble grape is mere rubbish.

    This legislature, along with this Guvna, are all pretty face, big talk, no substance. How many f-ing teenagers have to die before the legislature, the Guvna’s Office of Highway Safety, and the Guvna himself, make some tough decisions, and pass some tough legislation on teen driving, and then put the proper amount of state troopers on our highways??? 133 teen drivers dead in ’05 alaone, people. F-ing embarassments…

    “In 2005, 133 drivers between the ages of 16 and 20 died in car accidents in Georgia. In 2004, 124 died, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.”
