Will they sell "stupid" at the local stores, in place of "alcopop?"

I Luuurrrrvvveee Utah. With big wet sloppy drunk kisses, because that is the ONLY way one can possibly read or listen to the news here, especially during the LALALegislation Session, without pulling out one’s hair or migrating to Canada…. This year, our NEW and SPECIAL friend has made it especially interesting, and requiring a LOT more alcohol.

Some of the highlights of the past few days? Along with the whole “black baby” debacle and the “I gave you this job and I can take it away” egomania, Sen. Chris Buttboy, er, uh, Buttars, is NOW proposing a bill that would allow misconduct by police officers to be HIDDEN from the public. GOOD IDEA, CHRIS. Let’s take men with guns and the ultimate authority, make them unaccountable to the public for their actions, and see how that goes. It’s worth a trial run. Surely NOTHING BAD can come from that.

Maybe while you are at it, you can throw in certain Utah representatives. Let’s make THEM unaccountable for THEIR actions, too… Oh, you already thought of that? Go figure.

Thanks to Summer for this heads up. I think.

More about Buttboy? He is AGAINST gay clubs. I know. You’re shocked. Oh, and Gayle Ruzicka and her Nazi-ickas SUPPORT him. Again, the shock is overwhelming.

I had forgotten about this VERY amusing quote, or at least had forgotten that HE said it, until he brought it to my mind again with all his idiotic posturing.

“In my mind, if you are in the chess club, what do you talk about? Chess,” Buttars said. “If you are in the dance club, what do you talk about? Dance. If you are in a gay club, what do you talk about? I just don’t believe members of sexual orientation clubs should be sanctioned by the public schools — what they are talking about even a part of the public schools. They should not be allowed to have that on school property at all. It’s just wrong.”

This man is a danger to society. Or at least, to THINKING society. The rest of you nonthinkers should go picket your local quickie mart for selling alcopop. It will keep you busy while we tend to more important things. Oh, I think I hear Gayle Ruzicka CALLING you….

FYI, the above article I quoted notes that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has joined THE FIGHT AGAINST ALCOPOP. I swear, what would we do without the Mormons? Meth use is RAMPANT in Utah, but by all means put your very large, very rich shoulder behind the INHERENT DANGERS of alcopop, which despite anyone’s belief is VERY STRONGLY REGULATED, and forget that children are being raised in hazardous waste bins–aka homes that are used for meth labs–in a very REAL and actually dangerous phenomenon. Where is the LDS CHURCH in the fight against METH? How about the fight against AIDS or CANCER?

No, by all means, let’s take a stance against alcopop.

Good God.

No wonder Chris Buttboy got elected here. He digs himself deeper with every day and NO ONE SEEMS TO NOTICE! Pay no attention to that man over there in that very large hole, dear. He’s just making the world safe for you, keeping away the black babies, gays, scientists and judges who don’t rule in your favor.

    Good God. I’m not sure what is more discusting….Butters remarks, actions, Utah Legislators (ie: enforcers of Church policy) or the lack of outrage in this State. I’m fairly new to Utah (1 1/2 yrs), but I am still shocked at what takes place here in the little country of Utah. It’s shameful.

    Not only do I feel that I have taken a trip on a time machine, but it seems as if I have moved to another Country. Guess it seems more normal if you have lived here a long time…………or does it?

    Love your site. Helps me cope. That …and Alcopops!

    What I was struck by in your recounting of Buttboy’s quote, was that while it should be against the law and kids who are gay shouldn’t be allowed to group associate with other kids who are gay, let’s go a head and not only encourage and enforce the throwing of the first amendment out the window. It often seems to me the biggest hatemongers are the ones with religion backing them.

    You know if they called it Hot Cocoa Alcopop it would be sanctioned by the church. I am curious why the Mormon church hasn’t taken a stand against Meth?

    Alcopop? It sounds so yummy that way.

    I’m rather glad not be living in Utah, I tell you that. Why, we can walk into the grocery store and purchase a big bottle of hard liquor. Do you know what that causes? Convenience. That’s right. There’s one less stop that I have to make.

    Selling alcohol in the grocery store doesn’t promote under age drinking. It makes it more convenient for adults to purchase their beverages without dragging kids into a liquor store. That’s not even including that the sale of alcohol makes minors a lot more tolerable. After dragging the kids through the grocery store and listening to them beg for Lucky Charms (which they only eat the marshmallows outof) and whine that they don’t want you to buy broccoli, it’s nice to pick up a little something for Mom!

    Amen to that! Oh, I fondly remember the days when I could walk into any grocery store (24/7–if needed) and buy my wine. Sigh!!!!

    I’m so with Sam.

    I live in a town in the southern part of SL County…which is FINALLY getting a state liquor store. Despite the stupid mayor of said town’s public posturing against the DABC for doing such a horrible thing to us and statements that such a store would “attract the wrong kind of people”. I sent him an e-mail and told him we were already here. I don’t think he likes me.

    It may not be the supermarket, but at least I can buy a bottle of wine on the way home from work without having to go MILES out of my way.

    Score one for the wrong element.

    Funny how it escapes the Mormons that Jesus hung with “the wrong element” on a fairly consistent basis, at least according to the New Testament, which I thought was still one of their scriptures.

    Renee: Which city is getting a new liquor store? Thanks.

    I wonder if “the church” figures it’s getting tithing money from meth sales and that’s why they aren’t taking as big of a stand against it as they are against the alcohol. Just a thought.

    Alcopop is malt liquor, I think. Basically, made like beer but tastes more like pop. You know, the kind of sissy fou fou drinks some of us prefer….

    INTJ_Mom, it’s in Riverton, by the new Training Table and Home Depot. Thank goodness for Home Depot, as I understand it they donated the land since the DABC was having a heck of a time getting anyone to let them lease land for the store. I will shop there open, and happily. Both Home Depot and the Liquor Store, that is!

    I was wondering what that was. It’s a frozen “40.”

    Wonder if they will freeze Thunderbird, or Boone’s Farm, and wouldn’t that put them in a tizzy. ; )
