    You can have my Irish Coffee when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    “caffeinated alcoholic drinks” ??
    That’s ALL we need. Wide-awake drunks.

  3. Manish Says:

    Distracted driving has been shown to be just as dangerous as drinking and driving. Do you think that the feds should repeal all the drinking and driving laws?

  4. SayUncle Says:

    Do you think that the feds passed all the drinking and driving laws? Or are there these other smaller entities, say 50 of them, that might have done that?

  5. Linoge Says:

    Talking on the phone while driving (even while using a headset), talking to passengers, and listening to music all constitute “distracted driving” as well, and can be varying degrees of distracting as well.

    Shall we petition the federal government to ban them as well?

  6. straightarrow Says:

    couldn’t we just ban the government? Freedom is not risk-free.

    Don’t forget the exemption to the texting law for the Police. Because they’re the only ones.

    The caffeinated drinks article states that two brands of “malt beverages” have spiked in sales. What he didn’t say – either because of a failure of due diligence or from some sense of sensationalism – is that the reason why is because the gov’mint “persuaded” Miller brewing to take the caffeine out of their recently acquired brand Sparks.

    If I wanted to be as irresponsible as this journalist, I could blame the rise of flavoured “malt beverages” directly on the congress-critters themselves, when they went and raised the federal excise tax on wine to $1.07 a gallon back in 1991.

    Gee, something “new” comes along and clearly falls into ALREADY ON THE BOOKS laws and the busy body class needs to look like they give a damn about the little people while consolidating power over things that the feds have ZERO authority to intervene in.

    Voila new law!

    Just like guns. Murder’s illegal. AH! Look at that, a rifle with a bayonet lug that could be used to murder someone, there oughta be a law! Poof, new law, expanded unconstitutional power grab and the appearance they care.

    Note the coercion and bribery used here.
