Dipshit Arrested After Calling 911 To Complain That His Neighbors Wouldn’t Drink With Him

Fort Pierce Man To 911: My Neighbors Won’t Drink With Me – Off The beat

James Collins said his neighbors were mean and wouldn’t drink with him.

So he called 911… twice.

.
…………………

At least, that’s how the situation appeared Nov. 3 in Fort Pierce, according to a recently released police report.

Fort Pierce police were called about 8:35 p.m. in connection with a domestic disturbance.

“The complainant, James Collins, stated that his neighbors were being mean and would not drink with him,” a report states. “(An officer) explained to James about misusing 911.”

It could be argued that Collins, who turned 56 the day of the incident, did not get the message.

That’s because about 30 minutes later, he is accused of calling 911 in regard to his neighbors “not drinking with him.”

The 911 number typically is used to report law enforcement, fire and medical emergencies.

Collins, of the 1900 block of North U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce, smelled of booze and had a container of “Blue Ice” in his front pocket.

Collins was arrested on charges including disorderly intoxication and misuse of 911.

Greedy Leftists to ban soda in San Franfreako

There is just no quenching the Neo-Marxist’s thirst for absolute power

Now it’s time for San Francisco to take its turn in the sugary beverage battle.

Supervisor Scott Wiener plans this week to introduce a ballot measure that would set a tax on sugary beverages. The proceeds would fund health, nutrition and activity programs for city youth.

Wiener’s proposal would levy a tax of 24 cents on each can of soda sold in the city, where fast-food restaurants are already prohibited from handing out free toys in kids’ meals high in fat, salt and sugar.

Similar tax measures were defeated last year across the bay in Richmond and in the Los Angeles County town of El Monte, after the beverage industry spent millions of dollars to kill the proposals.

And New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s attempt to ban the sale of sugary beverages larger than 16 ounces has been halted by the courts.

Note the part highlighted in red by me. What that should read is the proceeds will be wasted and will line the pockets of fat cat politicians and their flunkies.

It IS called freedom

And we should defend that against all its enemies. Martin at What Would the Founders Think uses Nanny Bloomberg as an example of an enemy of liberty

In this particular case, New York State Judge Milton Tingling ruled that the Mayor of New York and the Board of Health had far overstepped their bounds of authority.

The rule would not only violate the separation of powers doctrine, it would eviscerate it. Such an evisceration has the potential to be more troubling than sugar sweetened drinks.

It is arbitrary and capricious because it applies to some but not all food establishments in the city, it excludes other beverages that have significantly higher concentrations of sugar sweeteners and/or calories on suspect grounds, and the loopholes inherent in the rule, including but not limited to no limitations on refills, defeat and/or serve to gut the purpose of the rule.

In other words, it’s just plain ludicrous and devoid of rationality.

That it is. If Bloomberg, or any other Statist can ban certain sizes of “sugary drinks”, what is next? Certain size steaks? Certain sized portions of BBQ? Maybe certain pies or cakes? Statists like Bloomberg are fanatical, their thirst for power is never sated. there will always be “something else” to ban, or limit, and of course, it will always be “for our ow good”. Martin knows this as well as I do

Personally, I don’t drink soda, but somehow manage to carry around a few more pounds than is good for me.  I eat more than my body requires.  But that’s my business. Choices have consequences – it’s not the government’s job to make sure that all my choices meet with the approval of a “public servant.” He may have been elected mayor, but he wasn’t elected God.

But never fear, Bloomberg is here to save the estimated (who’s estimate?) 5,000 New Yorkers who die every year because they are too fat. His office wasted no time in announcing via twitter,

We plan to appeal the sugary drinks decision as soon as possible, and we are confident the measure will ultimately be upheld.

and

We believe @nycHealthy has the legal authority and responsibility to tackle causes of the obesity epidemic, which kills 5,000 NYers a year.

Gosh, what was this judge thinking! How dare he stand in the way of this selfless billionaire mayor and the Department of Health!

Folks, freedom is too precious to waste, or cede without a fight. Statists like Bloomberg who want to tell us what to eat, and other Statists who wish to tell us what we can read, watch on TV, say, and when we can display our faith, or what type of gun we can own, or what size magazine, or what kind a car we can have are just as dangerous as Bloomberg. The choice is clear, our liberty, or a Nanny State?

21 things servers hate, and some that bartenders hate

Buzzfeed has the 21 things every server hates. My favorite one is no 21. I have seen worse

enhanced-buzz-21138-1360082963-1

 

I think the two worst examples I ever saw, was a dollar left on a $67 tab, on a credit card, and trust me, this is a good waitress who got it, and 31 cents, left, again on a credit card for a 54.69 tab, ans of course their kids left a mess from Hell. Some people should just not go out to eat, that is all there is to it.

Now, some things a bartender hates. 

#1 The guy, who orders a shot and says “hook me up”. I have heard that one, or some variation of it about 850 times over the years. Number of times the guy actually tips, well, if anything? ZERO! So basically, this douche nozzle wants you to risk your job over pouring his drink, for a buck, if that much?

#2 The camper. This is the person who sits at your bar, eats, has a drink, or two, then sits, and sits, and… takes up a seat when you have people lined up waiting for seats.

#3 The patron who wants you to wait on them, and them only, although you have 15 other guests at your bar, and a service well to make drinks for. This is the person who needs something constantly. They are also the person who orders their burger, or salad, and THEN after they get it start the modifications to their order.

#4 Mr, or Ms Cell Phone. They sit at the bar, yacking on their phone. Do you let them be? Do you try to use sign language to ask them what you can get them? Then, after you get them a drink, and their order placed, everyone at the bar must listen to their obnoxious phone conversation for the next 30 minutes.

#5  And this is the most hated by far. It is the people you converse with, their drink is always refilled, or new drink made, they never wait for anything. They run up a good sized bill. They thank you, compliment you, but tip 10%. 

Another quick one for you. Had a girl a few years ago, sat, drink, ate, all the time talking to a guy at the bar. Telling him about her job, as a server. Bitching about folks that tip 10%, over and over. Wanna guess what she tipped? Less than the dreaded 10%. How badly I wanted to ask her why. But, most people tip well, no complaints. And, yes, I have lots of bad service stories too, believe me. 

 

 

A Great Truth of Life

There are many, and one of them is this. Once the Nanny State starts banning or restricting certain foods or beverages, they NEVER STOP! Bob Mack knows this truth and discusses it here

You didn’t have to be a Nostradamus to predict this.  Once New York City’s nutrition Nazis had assured themselves that no pitchfork wielding mob of angry, soda slurping malcontents was likely to materialize before City Hall demanding the sugar-free head of Chancellor Bloomberg for proposing the mandatory downsizing of their beverages, it was time to declare open season on the compulsive poppers of popcorn and the depraved drinkers of milk. After all, we’re talking National Security here. Michelle Obama said so.

Health Panel Talks About Wider Food Ban

The New York City Board of Health showed support for limiting sizes of sugary drinks at a Tuesday meeting in Queens. They agreed to start the process to formalize the large-drink ban by agreeing to start a six-week public comment period.

At the meeting, some of the members of board said they should be considering other limits on high-calorie foods.

One member, Bruce Vladeck, thinks limiting the sizes for movie theater popcornshould be considered…

Another board member thinks milk drinks should fall under the size limits.

“There are certainly milkshakes and milk-coffee beverages that have monstrous amounts of calories,” said board member Dr. Joel Forman.

The newest threat to Western Civilization? Fruit Juice~!

Via Moonbattery, one of our Blogs of the Month for March

soon the hysterical Food Nazis won’t even let them drink juice:

Many young children — particularly those in low-income households — drink too much juice, according to a new survey.

More than a third of parents surveyed, and about half of parents with a yearly household income of less than $30,000, reported their 1- to 5-year-olds drink two or more cups of juice on a typical day.

That’s twice the amount recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which advises kids under age 6 drink just one serving of juice per day.

Too much juice puts kids at risk for health conditions such as childhood obesity and early tooth decay, the researchers said.

Good Grief, so now even 100% juice is bad for kids? If this is true then the fruit that juice comes from must be bad too right? Quick parents,take that apple or orange away from your child now! Throw out those grapes,  peaches, mangoes, and pineapple too!

 

Great advice for drinkers

Bring the Heat brings some fine pointers for those who might, you know, knock back a few this season. Read them all but these are my favorites!

8. When the bartender is slammed, resist the powerful urge to order a slightly-dirty, very-dry, in-and-out, super-chilled half-and-half martini with a lemon twist. Limit orders to beer, straight shots and two-part cocktails.

28. If you can’t afford to tip, you can’t afford to drink in a bar. Go to the liquor store.

30. Never complain about the quality or brand of a free drink.

66. Asking a bartender what beers are on tap when the handles are right in front of you is the equivalent of saying, “I’m an idiot.”

67. Never ask a bartender “what’s good tonight?” They do not fly in the scotch fresh from the coast every morning.

One I would add is this. NEVER, EVER tell the bartender to “hook you up”. People who say that expect extra booze and never tip well if they tip at all. Get your drink, tip well, and you will be remembered next round!

Oh, and NEVER whistle or snap your fingers at the bartender, unless you want to be ignored!
