I Guess They’d Rather Ask Forgiveness than Permission

I have an idea for the GOP convention when they resume…change your slogan to “We Apologize and Beg Your Forgiveness.”  They seem to be giving a lot of apologies lately.  First, we had an idiot GOP representative “accidentally” say that women don’t get pregnant very often from “legitimate” rape.  Of course, he had to apologize.
Now we have a representative, Don H Dwyer, Jr. from Maryland, who has made a career out of being anti-gay because “homosexuality will be taught at some level to children attending public schools as has been ordered by the court in various states.”  So he does it for the children.  
Unfortunately, while this guy was busy worrying about the homosexual takeover of the world, he forgot that drinking while boating can actually hurt children.  With a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit, his boat hit another boat full of children.  His decision to drink and drive (because driving a boat and a car while drinking amount to the same thing) caused a 5-year-old girl to be flown to John Hopkins pediatric trauma center with life threatening injuries.  Two boys (ages 7 and 12) were taken to the pediatric trauma center by ground transport, and a 10-year-old boy was taken to the emergency room.  
While it’s bad enough that this guy hurt these children due to his irresponsibility, the most disturbing piece of the story is yet to come.  As of the time I wrote this blog…the guy hasn’t been charged.  Are you kidding me?  How many drunk drivers do you know that are involved in serious accidents involving severe injury to another party can go 5 days without any charges?  THE GUY ADMITTED THAT HE WAS DRINKING AND DRIVING!  If you didn’t watch the video above…the guy says, “It is true that I was drinking while I was operating my boat yesterday.”  What the hell can take five days to investigate?  The father of the victims has the same question when talking to reporters about the accident.
“I knew from the moment that the boat veered into my path of travel that this person must be drunk,” he said. “I just don’t understand why Mr. Dwyer isn’t being charged. I had blood under my fingernails from where I was holding the wheel.”
As a representative he should be arrested and face the most severe penalties allowed by law.  He should be setting an example for his constituents, not injuring them in a drunk driving accident. 
But don’t forget, we have to stop those horrible gays from hurting our children!
