SOTU Drinking Game

Take a drink every time President Obama fails to mention the drug war when he talks about something that is affected by the drug war.

    I fear we’d all be on our asses fifteen minutes in.

  • claygooding

    and just what do you expect us to count with when we run outta toes and fingers?

  • Steve Finlay

    Dammit, you’re trying to KILL us.

    If i tried it I doubt my alcohol reserves would last 15 min….assuming I could survive the consumption of that much booze.

  • Paul

    Better call an ambulance.

  • Dirk Bogarts

    Everytime you hear the word “I” mentioned drink. The last speech by the messiah® had “I” in it 132 times.

  • Mike

    extra points if you can survive after also drinking when mentioning America being the leader of liberty, and then also failing to mention the war on drugs.

  • Kant

    does this extend to the republican response? because if so think i’d have to drink quite a bit at the comments “We need to return to a smaller government, which focuses on personal liberties and fiscal responsibility”. but right now the response is reeking like oats after they’ve passed through the horse.

    I’d like to take this unique opportunity to mention the legal status of alcohol in comparison to other ‘dangerous’ intoxicants…

  • Ed Dunkle

    It’s amazing that he can bring up the topic of nuclear energy and still be terrified of mentioning prohibition. Marijuana: more politically toxic than nuclear waste!

  • Chuck

    I can’t believe that through all of the talk about national security and foreign policy not once did he mention Mexico and the huge death toll right along our border. He needs to address drug policy and stop ignoring the toll on our lives it is taking.

  • Just me

    LOL Did all of you notice he mentioned finding cures for cancer, but failed to call for more studies into alternative drugs?

    I tore his speach apart, it was comedy hour for my girlfriend ! 🙂 😛 🙂

  • Just me

    Oh I cant drink that much , I’d end up in the ER !

  • Dudeman

    It’s surely worth pointing out that not talking about the war on drugs is better than pretending that it’s working, even if we’d rather he be talking about dimantling it.

    I’ll take a swig of Bhang, pronounced [bʱaːŋɡ]; it’s a preparation from the leaves and flowers (buds) of the female cannabis plant, consumed in the Indian subcontinent. It is consumed as a beverage.

    Alcohol? Hell, no! Cannabis has done a superb job of preserving my ‘grey matters’ and I have no intention of ever reversing that courtesy of imbibing See-Two-Aitch-Five-Oh-Aitch.

    But unlike our opponents, I’d never argue for a return to alcohol Prohibition; I consider myself able to learn from history when it comes to human nature.

    A pity those who are supposed to be oh-so-much wiser than ‘stoners’, courtesy of their having assumed public office, seem to be incapable of such a feat…

    If you did this with alcohol, you’d die; if you did this with cannabis, you’d fall asleep. Which is illegal again?
