In other words, you couldn't think of anything, either.
Because we don't need fucking cameras monitoring us every moment of our lives!
If it's not important enough for a real, live cop to write up a citation and hand it to the offender personally, then it's not important enough to enforce!
The government really needs to learn their place. And their place is NOT micromanaging every little detail of our lives.
I don't run red lights, and I don't endanger anyone's life.
Opposition to an oppressive and overbearing government does not imply a desire on my part to engage in any particular behavior.
Put them into a big state-wide pot, and each year divide it up between departments in the ratio of population (Possibly adjusted for crime rate). Likewise to any proceeds from police auctions and asset seizures.
No, that still leaves incentive for them to raise as much money as possible. The money should not go to law enforcement AT ALL.
Since the wronged party is the public, then it seems fair that the fines should benefit them. Off the top of my head, dividing it up as a refund for all property-tax payers in the municipality seems reasonable.
to use public roads with "safety"...
The world is NOT a safe place. It never has been, and it never will be.
And I'm damn tired of watching our freedom being stripped away by cowards who want a nanny state to protect them from their own shadow.
Something good? Out of congress?
When was the last time that happened? Snarkiness aside, I seriously can't think of anything within the past decade, at least.
You need to improve your reading comprehension.
The only thing I saw cayenne8 supporting was getting the fuck rid of Obamacare so we can all have affordable health insurance again. He opined the the Republicans were the group most likely to do that. Nowhere did he express support for any alternatives, simply opposition the the existing and radically broken law.
Well, if you keep your expectations low, I guess you won't be disappointed. Too bad you live that way, though.
Live what way? With a realistic view of how the world works, based on decades of observation?
If you want the expectation of quiet, get a hotel room, not a plane ticket.
MORONS tend to speak much more loudly than they would in a regular conversation.
Fixed your typo for you...
Decent quality phones these days have excellent microphones. I actually speak much more softly on the phone than I would to a person sitting in the seat next to me.
But yes, the world is full of idiots who think that raising their voice is necessary when on the phone. That said, you can't legislate away stupidity.....
Maybe we could let the airlines figure this out, rather than having Congress make laws.
Agreed. I'm sick of all the idiots in this country whose first solution to any and every problem is "pass a law".
The government already has their nose way to far up our asses. We need FEWER laws, not more.
I thought it was "The United States of Anything I Don't Like Needs to be Made Illegal Because I'm a Self-Righteous, Entitled Douchebag".
Indeed. Political bickering and gridlock in Washington are the only things preventing this country from going downhill even faster.
The absolute worst case scenario for the USA is that we ever elect a congress that can actually get anything accomplished.
5 digits ain't a low user id...
You allude to satellite in your post (Ie. the 2 year contract bit)
Nope, it's not just the satellite folks anymore. The cable companies have caught on.
A coworker nearly had to hire a lawyer a few months ago to get out of his cable contract after they dramatically changed the ToS on his Internet service.
