The last time a drunk approached me in a bar and said "You some kind of badass?' I said no. Then he punched me in the chest right on the badge. You have to be careful with those drunks. Very unpredictable.

First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.
I threw my brother and my best friend out of my shop,
they both were really loaded and causing problems, besides there were six employees watching.
I was setting up a job in the CNC mill and did not need any distractions, was worth about 100K.
I stopped working, asking them to leave several times, they kept getting in my face, trying me to drink with them.
They knew that I did not drink at all, but insisted.
I finally told them to get the hell out and not to come back, would have the state police remove them if needed to.
They finally left, friend smashed his brandy new Corvette into a bridge abutment near his home after letting my brother off.
NEVER talked to either one again, brother killed himself 12 years later, suicide by drinking,
he sucked down a fifth of Seagram-7 and a case of beer a day.
friend died 2 years after that, his wife died a year later, then his son a year after that.
I think we removed 150? Seagram's bottles from the house when cleaning it out, he returned almost all the beer bottles, only a few cases were there.
I don't drink, never have, never will, I don't like what it does to my thought processes.
New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.
Karl Marx said, "Destroy their culture, rewrite their history. Ruin their art and literature, and defame their heroes, by offering fabrications to scandalize that which they considered good.
After reading this Obama said I am on it.
