nobody seems to be able to get Washington going. Coach after coach after coach.
I don't get it. Beautiful place. Big PAC12 school next to a beautiful city
and state. Mild climate. I would think recruit's would be piling in there.
For me alcohal is not a religious issue even though my faith has taught me
it's consumption is not in my best interest. 32 years in law enforcement
has provided me with irrefutable evidence that it has no socially redeeming
value as a beverage. It makes no one smarter, makes no one more physically
proficient, makes no one more creative, makes no one a better person in anyway.
It destroys people, families, friends, peers, teammates, co-workers and service
men. No woman is more glamorous, no man more worthy, and no children safer.It was sickening years ago to see beer trucks with bumper stickers
proclaiming the alcohal that truck had delievered the year before had
contributed $64,000 in taxes because every day I saw destroyed families, lives,
careers and caused millions in injuries, lost productivity and incalculable
emotional damage.It does no good, ever!
@SLC watch,Root beer never made anyone smarter either, or any of the
others things to claim.Perhaps it is also evil?
I never went to a Rootbeer incited family fight.I never went to a Rootbeer
incited riotI never went to a Rootbeer fatal accident.I never went
to a Rootbeer inspired suicide.I never saw a Rootbeer destroyed careerI never lost a friend to Rootbeer.I never saw a child's safety
compromised by RootbeerI never saw an athlete lose his career to
RootbeerI never saw a Rootbeer HangoverI never saw a Rootbeer addict
vomiting his guts out.I never saw Rootbeer Cirrhosis of the liverI
never saw an impaired Rootbeer drinker behind the wheel, in the gutter or
defecate himself.I never saw a some one high on Rootbeer beat his wife to
deathI never saw a Rootbeer caused fire that destroyed a houseI
never saw a juvenile steal a case of RootbeerI never saw a child die of
Rootbeer overdose.I never thought I would see someone actually comparing
Rootbeer to AlcoholYes I have seen peoples lives made better by
RootbeerBut that is my experience
Root Beer? Oh, my. Oh, my!
