Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Think Falling Alseep While Driving and Causing a Death is Reckless Driving…Wait What?
“I’m not trying to take anything away from the tragedy of this,” Carlson replied. “But 10 years in jail for falling asleep? It strikes me as very different from taking drugs, drinking. Has that ever happened? Has anybody ever actually gone to jail for falling asleep?”
“For falling asleep and causing a death?” Schwartz asked. “Absolutely.”
“But, I mean sometimes people — and I’m not defending anyone here,” Carlson continued. “I’m really struck by the idea that someone who falls asleep — which is something that everybody does every day, not necessarily considered an act of recklessness — does it unintentionally, nods off is a criminal.” – UPROXX
The only good thing about this interview is that Fox News had the brains to put an actual lawyer on the air to dispute everything this moron Tucker Carlson was saying. Falling asleep while driving a vehicle, not to mention a semi truck, might as well be the exact definition of reckless driving. There’s a reason most people fall asleep in a bed or on a couch: because they’re laying down not doing anything. like say, driving a car. Obviously this wasn’t intentional by the truck driver, but if you operate a vehicle and fall asleep and that act kills someone then you go to jail. In Tucker Carlson’s world I guess we’d just chalk it up a loss because everyone falls asleep. That’s like saying its OK to go out naked in public because everybody, every day, is naked at some point. But you can’t just go around hanging dong and expect not be picked up for it. Just like you can’t drive a semi truck and decide it’s nap time. Go back to Waterloo, Tucker.
We’re not what you would call brilliant men. The good Lord didn’t bless up with fully functioning brains. But we’ll be damned if we can’t come up with some creative names for our fantasy football teams. Each year around mid August, men come together, in bars and basements alike, for one beautiful cause: their fantasy football draft. Should you go running back running back? Is Adrian Peterson trustworthy enough to be picked #1? The decisions are endless, but it all starts with one thing: your team name. Some are creative, some are funny, and some are downright genius. Don’t have a team name yet? Check out our list of fantasy football teams for the upcoming season.
RyanFoges’s Top 3
1. Tracy Chapman’s Fast Cars
Really has nothing to do with football, but when you include one of the greatest songs of our generation into your team name, only good things can happen.
2. Rob Gronkowski’s School For Kids Who Can’t Read Good
He may be legally retarded, but the man can play football. With this name, your team will be like Gronk himself, the biggest wildcard in fantasy football, especially when you combine his streak of injuries and his blatant refusal to rehab them correctly.
3. Red White & Drew Bledsoe’s
Drew Bledsoe is the coolest name in NFL history. America is the greatest country in the world. With this team name, fantasy football glory is yours.
MattyV’s Top 3
1. Attempted Murder
A team name dripping with double meaning. I bet you didn’t know that a group of crows is called a murder.
2. John Mayer’s Bed Post
John Mayer’s bed post is notched with all-stars and so is your fantasy team.
3. Lieutenant Dan’s Platoon
Lt. Dan Taylor might have lost his legs in the war, but you won’t lose a game with this team name. Naming your team after this American hero is the first step towards greatness.
