Your Tax Money Goes Here

Apparently Texas, like Virginia did recently, went into local bars and arrested people for public intoxication. Their rationale - to prevent drunk driving. Note that one was a hotel bar, and a few of the arrestees were registered at the Hotel - which means they weren't driving anywhere.

Even so, what constitutes being drunk? Hopefully, our dear readership doesn't think it's the ridiculously low standard used for DUI's. Anyway, I'll leave you this beaut of a quote from some idiot cop (redundant?):
"Going to a bar is not an opportunity to go get drunk," TABC Capt. David
Alexander said. "It's to have a good time but not to get drunk."

Way to go genius. And arresting people at the bar curbs drunk driving, Riiiiggghhht!


UPDATE: AndyT13 beat me to this story with this post - found in the comments in the post below - thanks.

I did see this at Andy's blog first.

Otter, this rules:

They came for our cigeretts;
But I don't smoke.
They came for our porn;
But I have enough to last for decades.
They came for the fatty fast food;
But I could still find a good burger.
Now they're coming for my BOOZE...
May god have mercy on them.
