CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

This idiot John Law of DHHR is a drunk. Yet DHHR wants to have the power to take people's children away.. without due cause.

CHARLESTON -- The state spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Resources is arrested on drunk driving charges.

Charleston police said John D. Law, 54, was intoxicated and trying to flee the scene of an accident in the 1500 block of Quarrier Street.

Officers say the Jeep Wrangler he was driving hit three vehicles that were parked on the north side of of the road.

When an officer arrived, he reportedly found Law in the driver's seat. Law claimed he had lost control of his vehicle.

When questioned further by the officer, police say Law claimed he drank six beers at a nearby bar.

After taking a field sobriety test, police say Law showed a high probability of impairment and he was arrested.

----------

Since the managers, and employees of DHHR set such a fine example of drug use ( yes, alcohol IS a drug), this is why they fought to stop the efforts of drug testing for their clients the welfare recipients.

Meanwhile, our legislature ignores the wishes of the taxpayers.

John Law has no bearing or authority in those decisions. Drug testing welfare recipients is a matter of law, not policy. The DHHR does not make laws, your state representatives do. Even if it was policy, again, that's not John Law's position. He has no authority whatsoever in determining policy---he only interprets the policies he's given.

And please, don't label the entire department as alcoholics. There are many hardworking, underpaid people who do a great job, many in contentious, extremely difficult circumstances. Many of them more frustrated than you with the system but are powerless to do anything about it. IF you believe welfare recipients should be held to a higher standard, contact your state and federal representatives. DHHR employees will gladly enforce the regulations once they have them.

Oh Dear Sweet Jesus,where does one start? Well possums,if he was drunk then well he's doing what he must to cope with life in Wrong Turn Country.The more educated one is,the more difficult it is for them to cope with the ignorance and stupidity found in abundance in WV.They drink to survive.Now please cut Mr.Law some slack and realize he's dealing with bumpkins all the time.I'm nervous and overwhelmed with just spending a few days at my estate there once in a while.I love the scenery but the price is just too much at times.I've never seen so many uneducated and backward hillbillies in my life.Once i stopped for gasoline just off I-77.A hillbilly there said"you sure is one purdy lady an i'd like ta git ta know ya better".I told him i was a lady of quality and wanted nothing to do with him.I ran from the toothless troll and jumped in my Mercedes and sped away.I know most women in WV are heifers and the men don't often see ladies of my quality often,but they must learn to compose themselves.TATA for now Lady of Quality
