Listen up children. Alcohol will make you do and say things you’ll regret. Here’s foxy dad to explain:
“Sorry I promised my dad I wouldn’t drink.” Wow. Talk about saying something you wish you hadn’t. This brilliant new multi million dollar public awareness campaign is brought to you by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) — your government advertising good old fashioned demon possession. Here’s another:
“Alcohol can lead to so many things, none of them good.” Well mom newsflash: sometimes kids do things that they know they shouldn’t, and sometimes they take risks that will lead to trouble. Kids are rebellious by nature. Why give them another excuse?
Obviously the purpose of this campaign is to heighten children’s fascination and fear of alcohol as a demonic ‘forbidden fruit’ to ensure a steady flow of ever younger newcomers to AA, the drinking club / blood cult of mischief, and to create more robot zombies to drugs and alcohol and mind controlled slaves to the New World Order who will kill themselves on command.
OK seriously I don’t know the exact goal. But really the conversation wouldn’t be much different if the kid was talking to the devil himself. (Watch it again and see.) This line from the Big Book comes to mind: “The alcoholic is an extreme example of self-will run riot, though he usually doesn’t think so.” Clearly the government has been infiltrated by the 12 Step cults, and they thirst for the blood of your children.
Call me crazy.
Anyway. What should the parents say instead? How about first of all talk to the friend’s parents and make sure they’re not AA members. And then tell your kid: “You are responsible for your behavior whether drunk or sober. I don’t ever want to hear the excuse, ‘The devil made me do it.'”
We tried that one before and it didn’t turn out well. This may not be the Garden of Eden but I think we have it pretty good, and I wouldn’t want some idiot messing it up for the rest of us.
Tell SAMHSA what you think about their new campaign:
