| O-T Lounge|| Am I in the wrong for not reporting drivers that are obviously drunk? - Asgard Device on 9/20/14 at 12:37 am|
Sometimes, usually at night on the weekends I'll see a driver that is driving like they have no business on the road. Usually it's really slow driving, overly cautious, pumping the breaks for no reason, stopping way too soon, turn the blinker on 1 mile before the turn, and some slight swerving.

Would you support it?
Issue transferable, but not refundable tax credits to all African Americans. 20 year expiration date on them. Hell, make them provide a birth certificate. It wouldn't cost the US government a cent. Only people who would pay would do so voluntarily by buying tax credits and ...

I really want to like this guy. I'd probably still vote for him, especially in a run-off against Vitter, but I can't help but wonder if La couldn't get better (radio) ads if most weren't so centered around "Hi, I'm Jay Dardenne and I love Louisiana". An inordinate amount of ads seem to target an in-...

It's generally understood that highway funding was at risk if states didn't raise their drinking age to 21.
However, does that really explain the fervor in which states enforce the laws? I read the other day where the La. ATC had done thousands of investigations and cited 100's for selling to tho...

I'm not talking about doing most shots like this, but they could do 1/4th of the pitches like this during a TV broadcast because I think its really hard to get a feel for how incredibly hard these dudes are throwing the ball until you see it from this POV.
