Drunk and Stupid is no way to go Through Life


The numbers are in - there were 1,798 DUI arrests for the East valley alone, over 400 of those were felony DUI according to the newspaper that puts us up 17% higher than last year. Statewide DUI arrests increased 10 percent, to 2,649 from 2,399.

Next to the DUI stats for the Phoenix and environs was another article claiming that AZ had tied Louisiana for 49th place in education. The study was undertaken to find which state’s kids were least likely to survive in a global economy, based on schooling and living conditions. We still hold the top spot for stupid, however. I believe there is a direct correlation to the degree of stupidity of the residents of our fine state and the number of drunks the various task forces snagged this past holiday.

One thing that makes the situation even worse is that stupid people breed and the stupid gene seems to run true thereby propagating the problem. If things keep going as they are the researchers will have to come up with a new award level for the stupidest state, maybe platinum instead of gold. Or maybe they could come up with a Fujita like scale of stupidity – AZ would be an S5, the highest level of stupidity measurable by today’s scales.

So here I sit near the epicenter of stupidity for the entire country; wonder what the smart people are doing tonight?

I thought you had that guy who made the bad guys wear pink. You need more people like that to take care of the DUI's.

Or is this a stupid response?

No, not stupid. Sherriff Joe makes 'em wear pink underwear and eat green baloney - most of the DUIs will be saying at his luxurious campground down by the animal shelter.

You'd think that stupid people would elminate their own gene pool by being...stupid-
It just never seems to work out that way- does it?

ANd what about the idiots in New Orleans REBUILDING in the same accursed flood zones- and NOT building the houses on stilts (or whatever you call them)-

I swear- it just makes me nuts.
Well, I might have been a little nuts to begin with-
but not stupid :)

MV: We have short circuited natural selection by aiding and abetting stupidity, such as rebuilding in a flood zone. They will get flooded out again and we will wind up footing the bill... again. Ray Nagin for president!!

The news people always interview the stupid people you descibe after the train wreck or tornado. They don't even have sense enough to put on a shirt and put down their can of suds.

Hammer: My favorite quote from someone being interviewed by the news after a crime: "This is a nice neighborhood, no one ever thought something like this would happen"

/t.: Thanks! If nothing else Blogging keeps me off the streets.

Kirsten:Apparently being wealthy doesn’t mean a person can buy brains – you are right, some of the things our” betters’ come up with are pretty scary.

I Germany you lose your license when you get caught driving drunk and you do NOT get it back. Maybe they should start that here - no being allowed to drive to work and back - just gone!!!

Well, I guess all of the smart people are steering clear of where you are right now! ;)

DAK:No one messes with the polizei! I liked the speed cameras on the autobahn as well - I think they need more of those in the US.

DAN:Not all - the developers show up to swindle the rubes out of their land and sell it back to them at enormous profits.

My favorite personal quote, "If people were smart, I'd be doing something else for a living."

Maybe the state isn't getting more drunks, but better cops.
