Brian Ryanberger: Your tax dollars at work friends.


I'm quite OK with this.

Trillions for unneeded wars and tax breaks? Not so much.

But keep biatching about the pennies NPR will take from you over your lifetime, patriot.

Pretty much done in one. But this is true:
Those of you who are skeptical about this and wonder why people with an addiction simply don't cowboy up and quit the booze or drugs are forgetting an important point: this is a disease. Would you tell someone with cancer to simply get a grip and quit that?

When cancer can go into remission by simply not going to the store, I'll agree.

Alcoholism can be overcome by talking to people and having a modicum of willpower; cancer cannot.

I'l guess you have never personally suffered from addiction.

I'm an alcoholic. Been to AA. Etc.


Doh! Looks like someone made a bad guess;)

ArcadianRefugee: See, cancer has real symptoms; alcoholism only has real symptoms if you take an active part in their creation


If you were an alcoholic you would know that it has real symptoms.

There is the shakes during withdrawl, nevermind the irritability, depression and other issues when quitting.

I agree it shouldn't be compared to cancer, and I don't think it should be labeled a disease but there are symptoms that happen after you stop drinking.

Oops...it's actually the WPIG PIG mascot he runs across in the bathroom (but the Carp is in the same episode).

king of vegas: WKRP


The state trouper comes to do a demonstration of how alcohol impairs your reaction time. Venus and Johnny are tested sober. Venus does fine, Johnny has the reaction time of someone whose already consumed several vodka martinis. As the demonstration progresses, they drink and Venus gets shiat-faced while Johnny's time gets progressively faster to the point of being faster than normal. This causes a bit of consternation from the officer.

It all comes apart when Johnny goes to the bathroom and runs into a giant fish which he believes is a hallucination and now acts drunk. The fish is Herb Tarlek in the WKRP Carp mascot costume.

Yup! Only the corporations should own the airwaves.

They, have our best interests at heart.

Paid for in part by the McDonald's corporation. Enjoy some fries you fatass.

I'm not addicted. I'm bored and not going to work tomorrow. There's a difference.

There's a number of addicts who live in my area. From what I've seen of them, I'd take the cancer if I had to chose.
