DAMM: Drunks Against Mad Mothers
DAMM of Pennsylvania ^

Posted on 12/22/2005 11:16:52 AM PST by EveningStar

The three-fold mission of DAMM of PA is to get mad mothers to stay at home and cook and clean where they belong, to stop drinking and driving because you might spill some, and to prevent other alcohol abuse like returning the keg before it's been emptied.

There is no excuse for drunks that get behind the wheel. We are all in agreement on that.

Making drinking jokes or jokes/humor about drinking to the point of being drunk is fairly harmless.

Just as I need to recognize my own sensitivies to people making deaf or hard of hearing jokes/humor others have their sensitivities. Sometimes its best not to engage anyone but instead just walk away. Getting angry/frustrated/passionate over it and directing it towards the wrong people does not help.

Their ultimate goal is to ban alcohol sales at all public places. Just like the anti-smoking Nazis have done and are continuing to do.

You don't realize how correct you are. Robert Woods Johnson is the major push (money) behind smoking bans, particularly in the hospitality industry (bars and restaurants) and it just within the past year or so took over control of MADD.

One of the original founders of MADD left in disgust over the directions it was taking and went to work for the Distilled Spirits Council, the trade association of the industry, operating their ressponsibile drinking campaigns.

It's all about personal responsibility...

Personally, you can have your glass of wine with dinner, and drive if you wish..
Or a six-pack..

But if you kill someone with a vehicle ( or anything else for that matter ) and there is alcohol in your system, I want a severe penalty..
Vehicular homicide combined with alcohol should be the same as pre-meditated murder... IMHO..

On the other hand, I vehemently object to "random stops" and "sobriety check points" set up by the police and highway patrols..
As far as I am concerned they are unconstitutional, and should be eliminated..

It's not about safety or awareness anymore. It's naked lust for power.

Don't forget getting the allowed BAC lowered so they can catch more people in their dragnets, thus claim drunk driving is even more of a problem, thus calling for a lowered allowed BAC, ad infinitum.

I am terribly sorry for your loss.

In California, you can have your licence suspended for 6 months on the first offense. That's if there's no accident, no speeding, no child in the car. I think that is extreme.

Now, I had an experience of my own on March 8 of this year. I got thoroughly smashed at a local pub and drove home. I was lucky. Nothing happened on the way home. However, my wife was understandably pissed at me. I haven't had a drop since. Now, I don't know whether or not I'll drink again but if I do, I hope I have enough sense not to drive.

This site is so wimpy, it's not even satire. What a waste of a funny idea.

Yes, but MADD has gone way beyond just proposing stricter drunk driving laws. They get their fingers into everything nowadays, typical overbearing mother instincts leading to nanny state type of stuff.

Two of my best friends were killed by a drunk driver less then 3 years ago. The guy is in Jail, and I'm glad because of it. But that doesn't mean I embrase everything MADD says.

MADD was started because the courts refused to impose the penalties under law on drunk drivers like the one who killed and maimed my family members. The woman who started MADD had a daughter killed by a drunk who had been ticked many times for drunk driving, yet he was allowed to continue to drive up to and after the time he killed her daughter.

How many lives do they get to take before they are held accountable by the law?

I'm not denying they have done some good things.

I'm merely saying I think they've oversteped their bounds and I don't agree with some of what they do.

Point taken. But, for the sake of this discussion, how many lives does one get to put at risk because one decides he or she must drink & drive?

I don't like the sobriety checkpoints either, but I see nothing wrong with law enforcement waiting outside of bars to see who is so danged drunk that they have trouble even getting into their cars, much less driving. It would seem to me that this would be probable cause to stop them to see.

We've had two family members killed outright...

A drunk driver (or anyone) that murders another person in ways other than self defense should be executed. Period.

I don't feel the need to drink and never have. It seems to me that your "experience" on March 8th was reckless endangerment to the rest of the community even if nothing did happen. I'm with your wife on this one. I hope, as you do, that you do have enough sense not to do it again.

Why take the risk?

Each in our little gang of friends in high school (25+ years ago) had D.A.M.M. t-shirts except they had a cartoon caricature of an old lady in a robe, fuzzy slippers, curlers in her hair, cigarette dangling from her lips and pounding a rolling pin an open hand (much like a police officer and his baton).

After looking at the new t-shirts, ours were definitely better. I hope they aren't trying to sell this as an original idea.

Having read the thread so far... I think the site is dam' funny, if I didn't get a chuckle out of stuff like this I wouldn't have signed up for the South Park ping list. Gotta have a warped sense of humor these days. You might enjoy this:

YEAH, drunks have rights too!

1. The right to remain silent and refuse to answer questions.
2. The right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police.
3. The right to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future.
4. If they cannot afford an attorney, the right to have one appointed before any questioning.
5. The right to stop answering at any time until an attorney is present.

I said drunks #1 not drunk drivers.

#2, I never said what rights.

Lighten up, it was a bit of humor like the web-sight.
