The Most Falsest Press Release I’ve Seen So Far in 2013: “Alcohol Justice” Non-Profit on the Super Bowl

Friday, February 1st, 2013

“Super Sunday is the nation’s worst day of the year for domestic violence…”

FALSE.

“…and drunk driving,”

FALSE

“America consumes an estimated 325 million gallons of beer on the day of the big game…”

FALSE. I mean, think about it. Most Americans don’t even watch the game, right? So, of the American’s drinking beer on Super Sunday, they’d each have to down like 20 cans? How is this even possible? And when’s the last time you drank a gallon of anything in an afternoon? Think McFly, think!

I don’t know, in some countries, when you lie you get locked up. What should be the punishment for people who make up stuff and then use a taxpayer-subsidized organization to propagate made up stuff?

Mmmmm…

To wit:

“Alcohol Justice CEO on How To Prevent Violence After the Har-Bowl

If You Don’t Drink Responsibly Watching Football, Stay Home or Go Home

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31, 2013 — San Francisco resident Bruce Lee Livingston, Executive Director and CEO of Alcohol Justice, is available to comment on the toxic mix of alcohol, sports, and street violence.

“Super Sunday is the nation’s worst day of the year for domestic violence and drunk driving,” says Bruce Lee Livingston, Executive Director / CEO of Alcohol Justice. “But whether the Ravens or the Niners win the Har-Bowl it could be a civic nightmare on city streets.”

Driven by Big Alcohol advertising, branding, sponsorship and celebrity endorsements,America consumes an estimated 325 million gallons of beer on the day of the big game, so alcohol-related harm is inevitable.  Budweiser sponsorship of the NFL Championship and beer sales are the biggest threat to public safety on that day.

“It’s not enough to discourage hard liquor and promote responsible beverage service,” adds Livingston. “The bars need to curb beer sales after the game and police need to smartly control traffic and crowds. Mayor Ed Lee and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake should encourage anyone who has had more than three beers to stay home, or go home and wait for parade day.”

Mr. Livingston has spoken recently on fan violence on ESPN’s Outside the Lines and on KCBS Radio. Alcohol Justice encourages the effective evidenced-based prevention techniques of limiting advertising, responsible sales, and community education, but public safety measures could also include traffic flow controls and curfews.

Especially tragic is how many young people are impacted. To counter the half a billion dollars a year that Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors spend on sports advertising viewed by young people, Alcohol Justice has launched the Free Our Sports(TM) Youth Film Festival.

Historic Commonwealth Club Embarrasses Itself with the 911 Truth Crowd

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

San Francisco’s own Commonwealth Club, America’s “oldest and largest public affairs forum,” will thoroughly embarrass itself by hosting “Richard Gage: 9/11 Blueprint for Truth, Reexamining the WTC Collapses” this Tuesday, September 8, 2009.

So, it’s been 106 years of public affairs, but now this:

asdf copy

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth” - why just those people? (Hey, weren’t architects the ones responsible for San Francisco’s failed Octavia Boulevard? Sadly, yes.) While we’re at it, why not invite representatives from the whole pantheon of 911 Truth craziness? You know, Veterans for 9/11 Truth or Pilots for 9/11 Truth or Scholars for 9/11 Truth or Scholars for 9/11 Truth (the other one) or Firefighters for 9/11 Truth or Liars for 9/11 Truth?

The 9/11 conspiracy virus swept the world back in 2007 – more than a few scarecrows got bayonetted back then. But hasn’t that whole movement started to die off? And how about this:

These people (in the 9/11 truth movement) use the ‘reverse scientific method‘… they determine what happened, throw out all the data that doesn’t fit their conclusion, and then hail their findings as the only possible conclusion.”

Oh well.

“Richard Gage, AIA, Founder, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

Five years after the 9/11 Commission published its report, some people question the official findings on what brought down the World Trade Center. In a multimedia program, Gage contends that forensic evidence and eyewitness testimony reveal explosive-controlled demolition of the WTC skyscrapers on 9/11. Fact or fiction? Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Gage’s bold and controversial address, and have the chance to put your tough questions to the speaker.”

What’s next after the Truthers, Commonwealth Club? The Birthers? Why not equal time for the Birthers?

Or the Thomson Reuters Water Car people? Let’s have them next.

And speaking of scams, let’s have the Platinum Gas Saver dude come to S.F. to say a few words as well. And here’s how the CC would address the concomitant blowback from booking a guest direct from FantasyLand:

“‘Fact or fiction? Don’t miss this opportunity to hear [Platinum Gas Saver dude' s] bold and controversial address, and have the chance to put your tough questions to the speaker.”

Ah yes, palliative cliches. Does a spoonful of sugar make ridiculous bookings go down the throat any easier?

No, no it doesn’t.

In closing, HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH!
