I mean, it's not like your favorite outpost of alternative newsiness is bastardizing the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, with "Cinco de Drinko" listings.

Er, check that.

Anyways, in other Cinco de Drunk Tank news, the countywide "Avoid the 38" campaign holds roving DUI patrols today. Cities where you might get stopped and asked for your license, registration and blood-alcohol level, after the jump . . .

Anaheim, Buena Park, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Fullerton, Garden Grove, La Habra, Laguna Beach, La Palma, Placentia, Santa Ana, Westminster, Orange County Sheriff's Department contract cities (Stanton, much of South County, etc.) and Cal State Fullerton.

The Avoid the 38 DUI Task Force refers to the number of OC cop agencies and towns and areas that participate in the program, or something like that. What's clearer is the campaign is urging you to "Designate a driver before the 'fiesta' begins" today.

Ole!

Don't drink like a peces.
"Cinco de Mayo is a special opportunity to gather with friends and co-workers for chips, salsa and margaritas, celebrating California's rich cultural diversity," reads the Avoid the 38 announcement. "It is also a night when dangerous and often deadly outcomes occur because another impaired driver hits the road drunk."

Officers will be snagging overtime to snag drivers displaying boozy tendencies behind the wheel. That's why party hosts, local bars and restaurants are especially being urged to promote designated sober drivers in advance of the Cabo Wabo shots.

Avoid the 38, which exists on a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, offers these tips:

  • Arrange rides home for your friends, family, co-workers and yourself before the drinking begins.
  • Identify and provide free non-alcoholic drinks to the Designated Driver.
  • Party hosts and servers must limit drinks to your guests or patrons. Don't serve more than one or two over several hours.
  • Cut back on the amount of drinks you plan to bring to the party--and provide plenty of food.
  • If you see dangerous driving, call 9-1-1 and report drunken drivers.

"Drunk driving is simply not worth the risk," says Sgt. Mark Daigle of the Sheriff's Department Traffic Bureau in the statement. "Not only do you risk killing yourself or someone else, but the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for impaired driving can be significant. Violators often face jail time, the loss of their driver's license, higher insurance rates, attorney fees, time away from work, and dozens of other expenses. So don't take the chance."

Roger that.

Actually, everyone else does. Most Mexicans don't really care about this holiday at all...it's only celebrated north of the border, amigo. They celebrate Sept 16...duuuh.

Stinko de Mayo. The panderfest. Mexican Independence Day is Sept 16, and not even a recognized holiday in Mexico. France attacked Mexico in 1861 and forced then President Juarez into hiding, but its army of 8,000 had a tough battle in Puebla from an ill equipped army half the size of the French forces. This proved to be the undoing of the mighty French army that had not lost a battle in nearly 60 years.

The Mexican victory was short lived, however. The French returned a year later with 30,000 troops to conquer the country. French rule was also short-lived, though, lasting only three years when the US sent troops to drive the French out in 1865. I'll wait to hear any Mexican mention, or for that matter thank the US for the assist.

Cinco de Mayo was not as much a great military victory as one would guess by the hyperbole and excuses to promote this dud.

Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian from Austria was installed as the leader of the country and given the title Maximilian I of Mexico in 1864. Mexico was referred to as the Second Mexican Empire under the new reorganization, but it only remained in existence until 1867 because the United States was finally able to assist President Juarez once US troops were freed up after the Civil War.

This sham celebration represents the devestation innocent American citizens are experiencing. Americans suffer through displacement and overruning by illegal aliens from Mexico. As many as 11 percent of the 29 to 40 million illegal aliens here now run amok killing, raping and maiming our wives, husbands, daughters, sons and grand parents. A member of an illegal alien family commits two of five crimes in the United States today.

The pro-illegal alien anchor baby lobby will brazenly attempt to minimize this carnage, and try to justify the actions of the illegal aliens. More than twenty times as many deaths and injuries to Americans occur from rampant behaviors by illegal aliens than all the US combat deaths and injuries in the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan, and all other wars before them.

When was the last time you heard this news from NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, CSPAN, any media outlet - including the racist Telemundo or Univision?

After all, we must do whatever we can to make it easier for hordes of Mexicans to come here illegally and violently take the lives of fifteen thousand American citizens every year, right?

So much for cultural perversity, excuse me, diversity. There is sufficient cause for you to rage as well. Iowa Congressman Steve King tried to tell you- did you listen? Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo tried to tell you- did you hear him? Senator Jeff Sessions, Alabama , spoke eloquently, trying to warn you. California Congressman Brian Bilbray tried to tell you- did you do something? Have you ever wondered why it is - in this great nation - we tend to shrug it off when an innocent American is harmed by errant illegal aliens- but we turn a blind eye, afraid to have the crooked finger pointed at us for being anti-immigrant and racist.

Illegal aliens in the US lacking "lawful presence" are routinely granted privileges (bail-bond, plea-bargains, etc) by local authorities (with the assistance of MALDEF and numerous racist Hispanic organizations), even though a flight-risk, by definition. Instead, the interlopers must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, then deported; "Felony Deportation, with Prejudice." When our local district attorneys awaken to their sworn responsibility without worrying about offending La Raza, and get it - they can and must communicate the local legitimate community desires regarding the Felony Deportations in strong written pleas to the local Immigration Court Chief Judge, in writing, for each and every case ­ hand-carried urgent correspondence. Tipping Point: When enough citizens raise cain, this lawlessness will stop. Americans will force local law enforcement's will to turn the tide. This outrage boils across America. It's like molten steel being poured out of the big ladles in the steel mills in Pennsylvania. We suffer an alcoholic president of the United States of America asleep at the wheel each election. He's irresponsible to himself, to his passengers an to everyone else on the highway. He's not alone.

This Congress abdicates its responsibility by not enforcing our immigration laws while working the back-rooms to legislate a gigantic amnesty for the benefit of the Democratic Party and La Raza. The last four administrations our cowardly Congress have created this carnage for average Americans. Who's next? At 39 innocent Americans killed by drunk-driving illegal aliens, and another 29 murdered by illegal aliens each day, over 24,000 will lose their lives this year as have those in previous years. Whose loved ones will die today becuase of illegal alien drunk-drivers or murderers? Will it be your daughter, son, husband or wife? It's a fact that in the coming days and week, more and more Americans will die at the hands of people that broke into our country and enjoy the arrogance and the immoral act of driving while intoxicated. A similar number of innocent US residents will die at the hands of illegal alien family members armed with knives and guns.

We don't need this death, mayhem and murder in our country - committed by arrogant disrespectful people who don't belong here.

With over 40 million illegals running roughshod all over the nation, the arrogance, disdain, and disrepect, they are going to shoot themselves in the foot soon enough. No matter how hard the media tries to hide the extent of the devastation, we will reach extreme saturation and we will not be able to turn a blind eye anymore...
