"In Texas, when I got here, it was legal to drive and drive. Literally with the beer in your hand. Where I came from, Illinois, it was illegal to
have a six-pack in the trunk with one can (or more missing)."
---yes it does depend on where you are, which adds a little more hypocracy to the law in my opinion.
As a former alcohol and drug counselor, I would say that you are focusing too much on your personal problem.
--- I have tried to when possible steer the thread away from my alcoholism. Sincerely, I only included it into the OP so I could be completely
forthcoming as to how I developed my viewpoint. Your proffessional psycho-analysis was not asked for, and too be honest in my opinion is waaaay off
topic. I do thank you for your concern though.
"In answer to your personal dilemma, the answer is quite simple."
--- perhaps in the wording of my title by asking the question in the first person it might seem like it is a dilemma of mine, I assure you I do not
lose sleep over this issue.
"The laws are made to protect other people, not you. It is called public safety."
---I have a problem with the logic involved here. If the laws dont protect me, how can they protect you? who is the public if not me AND you? Remember
it all depends on who is speaking , "me" can easily become "you". But thats another thread I think.
Too be honest I am just looking for other peoples opinions on questioning the validity of this law.
I do not expect to argue people into agreeing with me, and even if others find fault in my views, by having this dialogue it helps us to meet
somewhere in the middle, even if it is only agreeing to disagree
