    What's to stop him? Laws? He obviously was undeterred by those.

    Have you ever heard the sound of a family when told their child has just been mowed down by a drunk? It is most instructive, especially if the drunk himself, is also in your E.R. and annoyed at all the racket.

    Ah... that's what I was sayin, as in, "I hope his license was not valid."
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Yeah, you would think so. The great God advertising tells us this.

    I am even worse for doing it, time and time again.

    Still, for some mysterious reason I am a better driver than the rest of you.

    God is great, or not.

    Take your pick.

    Just because YOU think that you're a better driver under the infulence, does not make it a true fact.

    Apparently, drunks think they're the most fabulous singers, too.

    Most people in prison didn't plan on getting caught either. I think you fail to analyze the cost benefit ratio of drunk driving. Large fines, jail time, suspended license, increased insurance, reduced employment oppurtunities,and prison are some things to consider. It only takes one.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    What are you talking about?

    Are you sure he had a valid license? Are you sure the judges didn't follow the letter of the law?

    This is a matter of common sense, and punishment being in proportion of the crime. You propose a position - drive drunk = no ability to drive ever again ever, ignoring the ability for rehab, doubting the average intelligence of human beings and their ability to learn from mistakes, not to mention ignoring the concept of punishment fitting the crime. Seriously, if you drive drunk and don't hurt/kill anybody, the logical thing is to make the punishment less severe than if somebody were hurt/killed before getting caught (but still more than enough of a shell shock to deter further drunk driving)... and that is without factoring in past history, prior convictions/arrests, etc... and all you can do to justify such a radical position is to say "Don't drive drunk" as if it were already law?

    Thank god you aren't in a position of power - or at least one without checks & balances.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    I take consideration of punishment fitting the crime. I'm not calling for the same punishment as vehicular homicide caused by one driving drunk. I think fines, and pleas aren't working, and the punishment needs to be harsher to fit the crime. Why wait until some is killed to get harsh? If the punishment isn't already a deterrent, then the punishment needs to be more harsh. It's obvious that the current DUI laws aren't enough of a deterrent for many people. Some people learn, some don't. It's a weak argument that is easily refuted.
