You are right. But then without tax and revenue from licensing how will the government function?

No income tax there? No VAT or sales tax? No vehicle licensing fees? No drivers' license fees? No fuel taxes? These bogus "licenses" are just the way "progressive" governments enact regressive taxes to keep the rabble from starting their own businesses and possibly challenging the elite.

Trying to make a law suit against current valid law is just idiotic. Try to change the law instead, well if you can.

This is not a rule to follow in a democratic form of government. If it were, then we'd have to have left the Jim Crow laws in place because, after all, they were "valid". Perhaps the government has no right to tell people what, or who, they are allowed to carry in their vehicles.

If I was a paid government shill, I wouldn't be taking public transport to work everyday.

VP Biden did when he was a senator. But he's also an attention-whore who makes five times the average US household money and still doesn't have any money left at the end of the year for charity. With those budgeting skills, he probably NEEDS to take the train.

Have we become a country so corrupt that we now have to record *everything* in order to have even a modicum of justice? You can't get Comcast to not perform mail fraud unless you have a recording of them saying they won't do it, they only way to NOT have a police officer beat you to death for "resisting arrest" is to record it.

The cop will still beat you to death. We know this, because it's been recorded and it still happened.

As to your question about our corruption, yes. That is where we are at and you can thank Obama for a lot of it. He picks and chooses what laws he'll enforce. It's set a dangerous and deadly precedent in our nation. What's worse is, the next guy may be even less restrained than Obama.

Why should anyone follow the laws when Eric Holder and President Obama do not? Our system has lost its integrity and will likely never recover.

My wife works in HR and I'm finishing off the HR section of my MBA. It's not HR that does this. The HR people have an HRIS system that includes the ability to do forms etc. The managers are the ones that create the forms and guidlines, HR just shuffles the papers around. HR takes the blame because they are the face of the mess but in reality it's middle managers, or in my company they are called "talent managers" who have their heads so firmly up their asses that they convolute everything to the point even HR can't stand them.
