(Newser) – He was pulled over with glassy eyes, slurred speech, a boozy smell, and he blew well over the legal limit on his BAC test, so 61-year-old Michael Moore probably couldn't say much to help his case. But this? He "told me that his wife told him that he (had) been drinking too much so he decided to go out and 'drive it off,'" writes his arresting officer in Stuart, Fla., reports UPI. Also, Moore (not the filmmaker), who was pulled over for speeding just after midnight on Feb.13, mentioned that he was headed to a bar for a few more drinks after the spat with his wife, reports TCPalm. Despite his reasonable explanations, Moore got busted on DUI charges.

My ex knew a guy who owned a bar. Does not sound too bad does it? until you find out that he lost his license for life for too many DUI's. He was in the bar from the minute it opened until it closed extremely drunk, He lived across the street but still how can someone like that be allowed to own a bar???

Much of the problem is, they let bars and liquor stores keep their licenses who would sell that man yet more of the dangerous drug alcohol after that. They allow drive up windows to buy alcohol. We are not too serious about DUI when those things happen. We are serious about taking money for what are put forth as good causes and giving it to our court system. The same system that lets banksters steal steal properties using forged paperwork in court. Why even continue to put up the front that we are against these things?
