    Slow wits and fast tempers = the GOP today. They’re all monkeys in a typewriter room. Eventually, one of them is going to make sense, I guess.

    I’ve always wondered the same thing about bars where there is no mass transit. Here are businesses that legally exist to provide clients with the effects of alcohol, yet the only way to get there is by car, and driving after you get the desired result is illegal. It is baffling.

    Son, one day you can run for office and make laws that put money over human life, then one day become president or corporate CEO, and do it on an even larger scale.

    Though Montana’s government is the American equalivalent of sharia law towards gay people (and therefore full of nuts), drunk driving laws have not been driven by scientific principles.

    A while ago, California lowered the percentage of alcohol allowed in blood despite having no studies to support their conclusions.

    In fact, it probably only resulted in more fines and revenue for the state.

    In many cases the law just encourages drunks to drive without a license or insurance, and we fill up jails with non violent offenders for various drug offenses when they should be getting treatment. Populist laws always need heightened scrutiny.

    He’s right about drinking establishments being important to small towns, etc. On the other hand, the solution isn’t drunk driving, it’s returning to horse riding…

    @GEOFF “His theory is pretty one sided…after all, the funeral homes, mortuaries and cemeteries are raking in the cash.”

    That actually supports his argument more. You can support local businesses in many way by allowing drunk driving. And then there are the hospitals, auto body repair businesses and the car dealers.

    I don’t know what the laws are in Montana but in most states the DUI cutoff is .08 which is sort of ridiculous most people’s driving is not impaired at .08
