Driving The Country Off A Cliff While Drunk

Updated on February 9, 2011

America The Beautiful!

America The Beautiful- Ray Charles!!!

America The Beautiful! This is America!

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare of freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for halcyon skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the enameled plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till souls wax fair as earth and air
And music-hearted sea!

O beautiful for pilgrims feet,
Whose stem impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till paths be wrought through
wilds of thought
By pilgrim foot and knee!

O beautiful for glory-tale
Of liberating strife
When once and twice,
for man's avail
Men lavished precious life!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till selfish gain no longer stain
The banner of the free!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till nobler men keep once again
Thy whiter jubilee!

Power Drunk!

This is America Drunk!

George Walker Bush a.k.a George W. Bush  was born July 6, 1946. He is the 43rd President of the United States. He served two terms from 2001 to 2009

"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully." George W. Bush

"I'm honored to shake the hand of a brave Iraqi citizen who had his hand cut off by Saddam Hussein." George W. Bush

One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures." George W. Bush

It's probably not even his fault that he, Laura, their children, Jeb and Jeb's children drink. They probably watched too much Andy Griffith- maybe just the "Otis episodes!

Role Models

GW had role models. They've had roles in so much!

As you can see above his pappy was a role model!

His grand-pappy was a role model too. His grand-pappy was Prescott Bush.

Prescott Bush played varsity golf, football, and baseball, and was president of the Yale Glee Club.

After graduation, Bush served as a field artillery captain with the American Expeditionary Forces (1917–1919) during World War I. He received intelligence training at Verdun, France, and was briefly assigned to a staff of French officers. Alternating between intelligence and artillery, Bush came under fire in the Meuse-Argonne offensive. In what became a controversy, Bush wrote home about receiving medals for heroic exploits, and his letters were later published in Columbus newspapers. He retracted such claims in a cable in which he stated that his earlier letter had been written "in a spirit of fun" and was not intended for publication.

In 2009, Ramsey Clark filed a lawsuit on behalf of people claiming to be Geronimo's descendants, against, among others, Barack Obama, Robert Gates, and Skull and Bones, asking for the return of Geronimo's bones. It appears that Prescott wanted Geronimo's skull for the "skull & Bones" club. Here's a rule of thumb voting rule for America- never vote for anyone who has been to Yale. GW did. What a selfish fool!

Do you have to have gone to Yale to be President of the USA or just be a jackass?

Grant-ed, we've had many drinkers driving the country.

Ulysses S. Grant was a famous drinker but was never arrested for DUI!

Martin Van Buren, Franklin Pierce (died of cirrhosis), James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson was sauced at the inauguration in 1865. Chester A. Arthur was a drinking man's drinking man. But most of our country seems to have been on a binge.

Colonists liked to drink. In fact, according to one widely cited estimate, per capita consumption among colonists in 1770 was 3.7 gallons of distilled spirits per year, or approximately seven shots a day. That estimate does not include the beer or hard cider that colonists routinely drank in addition to rum, the most popular distilled beverage available in English America. Drinking took place in the countryside and in the cities -- to such an extent that Benjamin Franklin printed a "Drinker's Dictionary" in the Pennsylvania Gazette in 1737, a listing of 228 terms used for drunkenness in Philadelphia. Yet however much colonists drank, their society did not collapse. Most men and women got up and went to work each day, creating a booming economy. By the mid-eighteenth century this legion of drinkers had managed to create a well-functioning political system. They had also become so well-versed in Anglo-American BS.

The Floundering Fathers put back a few after signing the Constitution.

Oops! Tricky Dick!

Great Russians and Americans- Both of these were alcoholics and maniacs.

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940)

Fitzgerald had been an alcoholic since his college days, and became notorious during the 1920s for his extraordinarily heavy drinking, leaving him in poor health by the late 1930s. He lived to be 44.

Babe Ruth

I guess we can thank many folks like Babe Ruth for glamorizing drinking.

One can only imagine how untouchable he could have been had he not drunk so much.

One can only imagine how happy his family may have been had he not drunk so much.

Is hitting a home-run that important?

Occasional drinking does not necessarily indicate a drinking problem, but even small amounts of alcohol can cause slurred speech, slowed reaction times, or impaired judgment. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines "excessive drinking" as an average of more than one drink per day for women, and an average of more than two drinks per day for men.

So how much do American drinkers drink? According to the Gallup data, the mean number of drinks that male drinkers consume in a week is 6.6 (about one per day), compared with 2.9 for female drinkers (less than half a drink per day). Seven percent of female drinkers report having eight or more drinks in the past seven days -- the CDC standard for "excessive drinking" among women. Twenty-one percent of male drinkers report consuming 10 or more drinks in the last seven days, including 9% who said they drank 20 or more -- well over the "excessive drinking" limit for men.

Alcohol problems affect not only the individuals who drink, but also those around them. Nearly a third (32%) of Americans say that drinking has been a cause of trouble in their families. Interestingly, women (who are less likely than men to drink and to report drinking too much) are slightly more likely than men to report that drinking has been a problem in their families (35% compared with 29%).

Anyone who watches football on Sunday afternoons can see that alcohol, especially beer, is marketed most heavily to men and the under-50 crowd -- the groups that drink the most. And while men are much more likely to drink alcohol and admit to overindulging, the data show women are more likely to see it as a problem for their families.

Despite nearly 30 years of media campaigns detailing the dangers of drunken driving, almost one in 11 people admit to driving when they thought they were legally intoxicated, according to a survey released today by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

Of 2,509 adults surveyed, 9% said they had driven within the previous 30 days when they believed their blood-alcohol content was .08% or above, the legal threshold for drunken driving in all states and Washington, D.C. The AAA Foundation is a non-profit research and education group founded by AAA auto club in 1947.

The results resemble those of an unrelated, larger study released last week by the federal government. The Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration's survey of 127,000 adults found that 15% of drivers 18 and older said they had driven under the influence of alcohol at least once in the past year.

Ted Kennedy

Ted Kennedy 1969

Ted Kennedy had been to a “no-wives” party (never has been any drinking at one of those right? Right? Right?). He managed to wreck his car driving off a bridge.  He got out of the sinking car and left Mary Jo Kopechne in the car. He went back to his hotel to “sleep”. He passed several houses and didn’t tell a soul what happened, while the woman in the car, who could have been saved had he alerted authorities, drowned.

Bush in Lima, Peru

While attending APEC in Lima, Bush partakes of a traditional Peruvian drink known as a "Pisco Sour" (leave your puns in comments).  The ingredients?

2 oz pisco brandy
1 oz lime juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
1/2 egg white
1 dash Angostura® bitters

Bush Drunk At Wedding

The Wedding Video- 1992

The (wedding) video was shot at the August 29, 1992 wedding of Jamie Weiss, the daughter of Dubya's close friends Mike and Nancy Weiss. Mike, a Lubbock, Texas lawyer and CPA, was Bush's campaign chairman during his first political race (an unsuccessful 1978 congressional bid) and was one of the Texas governor's earliest political appointments. Nancy, also a Bush appointee, had a prime speaking slot on the final night of the Republican convention. She told the crowd, "I wish you could see how he reaches out to people, teasing those who can take it and protecting those who can't."

This clearly shows that GW gave up drinking decades ago. Doesn't it? Gee- we were told he gave it up!

Bush - Drunk Again

Before A Bush Speech-This Happens

Must See Hilarious George Bush Bloopers!

"George W. Bush, like most who decide to quit drinking, did so on his own without help, press reports following the revelation of his 1976 DUI arrest reveal. An estimated 70 percent of people who decide to quit drinking do so without any outside help, professional counseling, or support group meetings, and Bush is apparently among that majority."

Well, I don't think I had an addiction," Bush told the Washington Post for a July 1999 profile. "You know it's hard for me to say. I've had friends who were, you know, very addicted. . .and they required hitting bottom [to start] going to AA. I don't think that was my case."

Speculation in the national press, which went into a media frenzy over the report that Bush was arrested 24 years ago for drunk driving, ranged from the suggestion that if he never went to A.A. he is not really recovered, to the opinion that if he quit on his own, it was not a big problem in the first place.

Oh really?

Dick Cheney vs. Nancy Pelosi: The Blink-Off

Vice President Dick Cheney

               - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Above, I had installed a video of Dick while drunk but youtube does not have that for us anymore. Gee! I wish I cold erase some of my past like that. I'll keep a couple blank lines here to remind me that it appears with enough money, you can erase the truth.

Vice President Dick Cheney could actually argue that his two DWIs came when he was young and reckless.

Court and police records show that Cheney was convicted of drunk driving twice during an eight-month period in the early 1960s in his home state of Wyoming. The two convictions came when Cheney was 21 and 22 and resulted in fines and a brief suspension of his driver's license.

The vice president mentioned his rap sheet in an interview of The New Yorker that after dropping out of Yale in early 1961, he found himself "working, building power lines, having been in a couple of scrapes with the law." The busts, he said, made him "think about where I was and where I was headed. I was headed down a bad road, if I continued on that course."

Cheney's first DWI conviction came in November 1962 when he was 21. According to this docket from Cheyenne's Municipal Court, Cheney was nailed for drunkenness and "operating motor vehicle while intoxicated." A Cheyenne Police Judge found Cheney guilty of the two charges and hit him with a 30-day suspension of his driver's license. Cheney also had to forfeit a $150 bond posted at the time of his arrest. Further information about the case--such as the defendant's blood alcohol content or whether Cheney was jailed following the bust--is unavailable since other court records from that period have been destroyed, according to Wyoming officials.

Details of Cheney's second Wyoming arrest, in July 1963, have also fallen victim to time and records destruction practices at the local Municipal Court. But a police arrest card (similar to the one that haunted Dubya) maintained by the Rock Springs Police Department shows that Cheney was fined $100 for his second DWI conviction. The card lists the charge against Cheney, who was then working as a groundman laying power lines, as "11-44," the criminal code classification for drunken driving, according to Police Chief Neil Kourbelas. At the time of the Rock Springs arrest, Kourbelas said that local cops and judges would not have known that young Cheney was a boozing 'n driving recidivist. The police department, Kourbelas said, "wouldn't have had the ability to automatically check with other jurisdictions to find out if anyone had had prior arrests or convictions. We could have arrested Jack the Ripper back then and had no idea what he had done."

We're all glad that he turned his life around!

      Maybe I'm only driving a couple of nails. Maybe there are too many nails. Maybe there are too many carpenters.

      I just know I was told to drive these nails. I've gotta keep hammering these two because they are the best nails. They are essential to the structure. These nails aren't getting "in there" yet.

      Whatever religion or non-religion you adhere to - it is fine to pray as Jesus said to pray. I'm redundant but this is it!-

      Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, Amen.

      Let's pray that "Thy" or a higher calling's will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." So far this prayer is not lived to it's fruition. I think we can treat each other better and a better "will" has to be done. I think that earth should resemble heaven. That's what we are praying for. To accept that the scripture "there will be wars and rumors of wars" to be held over this prayer is being defeated.

      Marines- if at all possible -will not leave Marines behind. As long as one is imprisoned - we all are. We need change and can't get it inside the same old boxes. Thanks!

      Yo Storytellersrus! "Micky Dee, I stumbled on this hub after last night's binge and I really don't get it." I'm not sure if your reply is serious or not. I'm not really sure about what you're saying. So Bush's girlfriend was with Bush all the time? Are you saying I should believe politicians? Are you saying I should believe girlfriends of politicians? Are the videos above fake?

      I'm not really implying a lot here actually.

      If I can imply anything at all- let me imply this:

      There have been crazy people drinking alcohol and driving cars drunk. You can get alcohol everywhere. Most people who drink a lot drive and drink.

      I say let's get George Bush, Obama, the greatest cyclist in the world -right now- let's allow the greatest person you know - let's get Lance Armstrong or a dozen of the greatest cyclists on earth - if these greatest cyclists in the world will drink as much as I want them to- I will smoke pot as much as they want me to. Let's race.

      Allowing people to impair their judgment with alcohol at restaurants and wherever and not allowing someone to smoke cannabis and even sending them to jail for doing so is mean and is not part of projecting the Golden Rule.

      To not allow testimony from witnesses about the curing properties of hemp oil - no smoking- the hemp oil for medicinal purposes like helping with cancer and in some cases having the cancers go into re-mission- if going so far as to allow your brothers and sisters to go to jail for curing or doing nothing to anyone- this is not keeping with the Golden Rule.

      The absolute LAW of Christianity is the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. A version of the Golden Rule is in every religion I've heard of.


      So first of all GW Bush nor any politician that I've heard about can be trusted in just "this regard".

      This is all the evidence I need. I could point to so much and type my fingers to the bone but I cannot wake you or anyone else up. You and any doubters must do your own seeking. I can only point. Everything that I say can be said to be a lie by someone.

      I have no political "loves". It has been proven to me without any doubt whatsoever that our leaders are crooks and certainly have no inclination to uphold and promote the Golden Rule.

      If I thought for a moment that more than a few in Washington adhered to the Golden Rule This hub wouldn't exist. Micky Dee would not exist.

      This country is mostly for the rich- the bankers, the pharmaceutical companies, Wall Street. Let's bail everyone out but the poor.

      A Canadian wins the Gold Medal in Seoul for downhill skiing. The skier is threatened to have his medal taken back because he has tested positive for cannabis.

      But they do not take his medal. Why?

      Does being able to ski at 60 or 80 miles an hour down a ski slope while having smoked pot or whatever- does this refute the lies about the train wrecking because a guy smoked pot?

      This does not compute.

      I'll take a blood test right now from an independent agency and if it is legit I will be free of all drugs even one of the worst which is alcohol. (again-let's do a test) Worst because it is too and so available and will render you unconscious if you imbibe enough of it.

      The bottom line is people should get away from "party lines". They should know that the courts are so fraudulent that if people will search for the wrongly convicted and imprisoned for just capital crimes THE SEARCH WILL NEVER END!

      How many lives are ruined for lesser "wrongly convictions"?

      How many jobs are refused, how many fines are imposed, etc., etc., etc.

      I could go into the elections. We could revue all sorts of data. This hub could go on until I sit here and pee in my pants.

      If the hub implies anything it implies that Americans (and other citizens of other countries)will turn their heads and drink wine until they pass out or drive a country off a cliff before they will help their brothers and sisters out who have been falsely imprisoned for many things including pot.

      We are the most imprisoned nation on earth (peer capita).

      I spent time on the chain-gang for the false crime of having grains of marijuana in a can of Prince Albert tobacco. This was/is a lie I went to jail for.

      If this hub will imply anything it is that George Bush was/is a failure at everything he has done and at least half Americans don't care.

      This hub may imply that Americans have an insane obsession with alcohol and they are so intoxicated that families and relationships are ruined and people are killed on highways and people go to jail and suffer needlessly. Meanwhile the drunks think it's wrong for someone to smoke a doobie in their own privacy. Brainwashing.

      Bush's cousin says he was a riot? My God have mercy!

      I want nothing to do with secret organizations that may or may not have Geronimo's skull and call their club the Skull & Bones.

      This is endless and redundant! If you've been imbibing and were making a joke please forget this book I wrote but- I've left out many, many chapters. I'm not Democrat or Republican. It's a game folks.

      Let's "do unto others as we would have others do unto us"!

      If we keep this law for our courts, government, business- we won't need other laws including the 10 commandments.

      The Golden Rule super-cedes them all. I say too many people are in violation. This will be the implication of most of my hubs for now.

      Thanks for dropping by Storytellersrus.

      By the way- most of my friends drink. I can also take you to several folks who have problems with alcohol including one who would "get drunk" do all kinds of damage and defecate in the back of someone's pickup truck. He's supposedly smoking pot and has been cured of defecating in the back of someone's truck.

      Micky Dee, I stumbled on this hub after last night's binge and I really don't get it.

      Bush's girlfriend from 1970 until 1972 says, ''He was the straightest guy I knew. The most we ever did was go to a party and drink beer.''

      Bush himself states that he was not an alcoholic, he has acknowledged that he was simply "drinking too much..."

      Come on, MD. Alcohol makes you an alcoholic. Beer makes you the life of the party!

      Bush's cousin Elsie Walker explained, "He was a riot!" She gives the example of Bush asking a female friend of his parents at a family cocktail party, "So, what's sex like after 50, anyway?"

      Alcohol is a tricky thing. Any drug is, of course. And certainly people in charge of a country should do better. I think (hope?) it is clear that many of these photos are not authentic, though!

      It is sad, too, though - someone close to me is dealing with the ramifications of an alcohol addiction. I myself am learning to be more careful. It is, indeed, a powerful drug.

      Anyway, just thought I'd give my $0.02. Thinking about you as always.

      Yo 50 Caliber-I definitely have to be for health-care. Jesus was for it. I haven't read the "bill". I'd say most Americans are poor. I think "middle" class was a myth anyway. Seemed like the middle class was always about a paycheck from a pauper's grave. As fro Osama Bin Laden- I don't think he pulled 911 off. His family was given a plane ride out of the "States" when it happened.

      There has been poop in the papers since this thing happened. Even Afghanistan. Our troops go into a bunker and find instructions on how to kill a person written in broken English. If you don't know English -why write it in broken English? You need instructions written down to "shoot for the heart". Who is that stupid?

      They're saying/writing in broken English to aim a rocket at the nose of our aircraft? You'd better give it a better lead than that. You'd also better have an anti-aircraft weapon that "we" sell that will hone in and chase that sucker.

      Those towers came down with the speed of gravity. Three world records in one day. The 911 commission has not carried out an investigation.

      God bless America. God Bless our troops. The hell with politicians no matter who they are. So far they have no credibility.

      Yo Dusty Dude- thank you sir. I may go out and ride my bike.

      Son- I was the first man in my town to openly date a black woman. But I don't trust Obama either. I'm waiting to see how it's going to be. So far he's making Vets pay for their health-care. George Washington wanted our Vets cared for. He's backed legislation to give wall street liars cheaters criminals bankers money like all the other white jackass presidents we've had.

      I don't trust a politician if he's white, black, or Irish green!

      911 was an inside job. If not- the cover-up is.

      I'll check out the link. Thanks Dude!

      Mick, in the balls, kick 'em hard! The high light? Mr. Ray Charles! I loved his ability and his never ending smile that lit up my day as I watched him play and sing, as a humble man he shall inherit the earth as it is told. Like you I'm getting old and as for the bill it marked a day where congress for the most part failed at their job and voted THEIR mind not the folks who put them there. Was it right? or was It wrong? I can't say other than they showed the voters that they own them like slaves after their appointment. That part I know is wrong. The finality will be held by the Supreme Court and the opinion of theirs, split or unanimous? It matters not, to me anyway. I've lost all faith in this country. I just know that here live billionaires who eat a portion of a 300 dollar plate and with out a thought send the rest with the bus boy of minimum wage to dump it in the trash. If they would, folks like Bill Gates and the Bush family could gather together and feed untold folks as well as get them care in a doctors office. With heavy hearts on their airy heads they just get drunk trying to make it go away. I should have gone to Canada, my life would be different today, as I would have been pardoned like the rest.

      Now I'm supporting Osama Bin Laden for president next election as Evil as he is, he's got what America has not beheld in many years, the ability to fess up to what his motives are and claim the catastrophes that he has caused. Unlike the presidents we suffer or the leaders of other countries we call friend while stabbing each other in the back. It is a viscous circle that will never end.

      So this was a great hub. It has me of the mind to turn off the television and empty my notifications of all things that disturb a happy thought and then go play Frisbee with my dogs, and laugh as well as be happy. So ride that bike my friend and lets do only funny stuff like this hub as well as this one:

      You've excelled this time, Mickey. I got totally confused, by enjoying Ray Charles singing of the beautiful America, then seeing Dubya Bush like I've never seen him before. Ending up laughing as usual when I realised the title of the hub. You're a gem . Thanks again

      Yo Tantrum! Is it any wonder folks are confused? We don't have to drink. We get a "contact high" from the stupid things they do and the way they screw up the world and America. Why do people need to drink so much? It's because people are drinking so much! Thanks Tantrum!

      Thank you so very much Maita. I love this country but politicians are nether-worldly. There's a lot to straighten out. I won't be too harsh on Mr. Obama- yet!

      We do love Ray Charles! We just can't help ourselves!

      Yo Ghost. I'm alone. I'm lonely- but some folks can't be alone. I've been dealt some lemons so I'm making some lemonade.

      I had some great bike riding this week-end.Saturday was the first "Saturday B-group" ride out of our area. It's been too cold for the group. Most rides from our area discontinued for the coldest of the winter. I rode really well. I'm really too strong for the B-group ride. I'm just right for the A-group ride but I like the people with the B. I'm not strong enough for the licensed racers. Sometimes I am but usually I want to have more fun. Saturday I sprinted for all county lines hills. You know -showed my butt. Friendly folks. Some of the faster riders haven't done the homework that I have and I have a jump on them.

      So- I rode. I ate well. I was home alone. I missed my ex-girl-friend. I missed my daughter. I made this hub. I wanted to say more about all the crooks above. They are all in a "club to themselves". I don't know what to think of the "health-care" that was passed. What we had was a lie. We had millions who couldn't afford to be healthy. Still can't. Some think that "their guns" will be taken next. They have a lot more to worry about than their guns. Anyway- it's crazy, crazy world, still.

      All I can say is WOW! There is no doubt in my mind that both Bush and Cheney are alkies. Consider how difficult it is to get a DUI in either Texas or Wyoming. Consider that theirs were decades ago, when both states were even less populated than they are now (and yes, I am saying the laws against drunk driving have gotten much stricter with the advent of MADD). Not to mention Cheney's little hunting mishap with his buddy.

      Whether activily imbibing alcohol during their terms or not, both Bush and Cheney exhibit CLASSIC alcoholic personality traits.

      Unfortunately, having people associate Bush (or Cheney) with "alcoholism" gives people who really are in recovery a bad name.

      I do hope they both get with the program. They've certainly caused enough reckage in America and around the world.

      Hey guys -- we're still waiting for those AMENDS!!!

      Love your hub!!
