State Liquored Authority : Drinking and Driving is Wrong!

It is hard to piss me off.  I have developed such a high tolerance for BS that my personal threshold for anger is pretty strong.  HOWEVER, driving drunk and getting away with it is one quick way to get me going.  Well, committing any crime and getting away with it pretty much does it for me.

I received info that a deputy commossioner for the State Liquor Authority was arrested for drinking and driving in Albany a couple of weeks ago.  Now, I've been looking at looking for his name and have not seen it.  The perp allegedly broke a .18 blood alcohol content.  The state limit is .08 so for you math geniouses who did poorly on decimals, .18 is more than double of .08.

According to their website, there are only two deputy comms based out of their Albany office,
Joshua Carr, DC for Internal Audit and Special Projects and Kerri O'Brien DC for licensing.

Now we need to know what the State Liquored Authority is going to do about it.  This agency has a long history of being a good hiding place for political hacks and appointees.

More to come when I get a name...

A Moment to Honor Blogoship - Updated

I am new to blogging.  As you can tell, I don't make much effort to do it regularly and I certain have an anti bullshit slant.  But there are others who do it religiously.

I read the TU Local Politics blog the most.  I dip into other blogs from time to time but this is the one that I come back to.  So I wanted to take time to recognize just some of the posters to this blog who keep me informed, misimformed, and entertained.

How Do You Solve A Problem Like Miranda?

Monica Arias Miranda is the head of the Hispanic Coalition.  If you know me, you know what I think about groups like the Hispanic Coalition, NAACP, any union, or the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants;  special interest groups created to help democrats win based on sex or ethnicity.

So, this woman decides to run for state senate against republican Umpa-Lumpa Amedore.  Since Amedore has given money to Gerry Jennings I am now interested.

She was the first to announce.  But there are 3 others running besides her for the democratic nod, Tkaczyck (she should coach basketball at Duke), Tom Dolan from Coeymans, and Bob Prentiss (yes republican turn carpetbagger interviewed for the Albany democrat nomination).  Guess who did not get an interview?   Yeap, the hispanic chick.

I have always said that democrats are more racist than republicans.  See, dems actively keep people of color down but republicans simply don't care.   So while this is not a surprise to me, I understand how it is a surprise to everyone else.

To add insult to injury, the Albany dems gave their nod to Dolan.  Ok.  Miranda then makes a stink by refering to the process as part of the good old boys network.  Damn, she got it and she didn't even have to sell herself for a few business suits from Marshall's like some self appointed public advocate blogger we know.

I am now in love!!!

So what she's a democrat, she is taking it to the machine just like another latino brotha we know who shares his name a famous basketball player from the Miami Heat.  If this is the future of latino anti status quo politics in America, yo quiero taco hell!!!!!

Matt Clyne, the head of the Albany Machine democrats said he would reopen the interview to consider Miranda.  Of course, after he picked his boy Dolan already.

Miranda, sloppy seconds is not only bad in 70's cheap porn, but also in politics ask Vanessa Del Rio.  Don't bother.  Trust me, you have bigger plantains to fry.

Here is an oldy but goody on this Palm Sunday.
