  6. finally chase of road maggots

    Yes, when they arrest you for THC or other DUI or warrants or... Just another excuse to pull you over and see what they may dig up... I've no idea how much the state/county gets paid for each DUI but I'm sure it's a lot. Good thing I've never had to find out. But hey, at least those dangerous criminals won't be slowing us down in the fast lane anymore. I would never, ever, EVER drive under the influence. But I could see why drunk or high drivers would be against traffic laws that might result in them getting caught committing felonies, though, and I could see why these same people would prefer that existing traffic laws NOT be enforced I agree drunk driving is a terrible crime. However, to believe your local PD is doing this as a "public service" is not entirely believable. Maybe, the cops/law makers caved to so much public pressure on the issue, like what happened with MADD and tougher DUI penalties. Cause, like, I'm sure that this has been a huge hot button political issue on the forefront of we citizens. To think that is the case in our ever increasingly nanny state with bigger gubment and freedom after freedom being whittled down in the name of "protecting" us citizens. I think my theory is much more plausible and even more likely. Sure, pot is legal, but a lot of people don't realize that caught while driving high can and will draw a lot of income to the state/counties. I'm sure Oswald acted alone with JFK, too... Fuk'n conspiracy nuts... I don't even know what you're talking about anymore. Are you saying that the police are incentivized to enforce traffic laws for the income from citations? Duh. Or are you suggesting that it's a bad thing for them to use traffic violations to hunt for drunk drivers? Or are you saying it's only bad if they do it just because of the money? I don't get the controversy here. What trick is the man pulling that I'm not getting? Should we not allow traffic fines, due to their corrupting nature - corrupting in that they encourage police officers to enforce laws?

    Yeah, he's been tried in the media and that's good enough for me!!!!

  15. Liberty Ridge May 21st?

    I've approached Curtis Ridge and Ptarmigan Ridge via White River Road several times in winter and early spring. The road to White River trailhead is plowed in two phases. The stretch from HWY 410 to White River Road will most likely be plowed when your trip is planned, leaving about 5.5 miles of road to the White River Trailhead. If this is the case, then riding bicycles is a very efficient way to make the approach. The White River road is mostly flat and can be biked in short order. Yeah, it's quite a surprise to be coming back out of there on skis and find that someone plowed half of the road you were planning on gliding down back to the car.
  16. It's OK to pay people less than you normally would but only if they're from a poor country, or female. Duh! THEY SHOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR THEIR PITTANCE!

  18. Or maybe just this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Goose_That_Laid_the_Golden_Eggs Time will tell. More like, "The Goose that laid the golden egg but only gave a few pennies of it to the farmer and kept the rest for the kids down the street who have rich parents" I mean, they live in a poor country! They should be GRATEFUL to get a pittance for their labors. They're lucky we give them anything at all!!! Ungrateful bastards.
