Does this not strike anyone as strange?

Basically, the gist of the article is that Dubya is planning his 50th vacation in 5 years......

Makes one wonder - if the job is so tough that it requires 50 fucking vacations maybe he should abdicate to someone who will not find his job so.... difficult?

I am sick and tired of the mandatory fucking seat-belt law in this state......  :banghead:  :cussing:

Over a year ago, I got a goddamned ticket for driving without a seatbelt. Ever since then (ask Leilah - she laughs at me for this) I have worn the fucking seatbelt whenever we drive outside of Orleans parish.... except today...

Guess what happened?

Fucking State Trooper pulls up behind me. I see him and start to wonder....

He pulls up next to me and then gets behind me again and the lights start to flash....  :banghead:

Then, through a fucking PA I hear "Pull the car off the road..."

WTF? Did I just kill someone?

I have to pull into a parking lot where I am instructed "shut the car off and come out and step away from the vehicle..."

Now, I knew what the hell I was pulled over for.... But why the drama? Why the treatment that I am some kind of fucking dangerous criminal? I did not wear my fucking seatbelt for the first time in over a year..... am I dangerous?

Do State Troopers actually serve any function other than to over glorify themselves when peoiple do not wear their seat-belts on a congested road, with stop and go traffic, where if I can get up to 30 Mph I am lucky?  :banghead:  :cussing:

Your tax dollars at work!  :bash:

Wow, I'm amazed they can pull you over *just* for not wearing your seat belt.  AFAIK, here, if they pull you over for something (speeding, tail-light out, whatever) and you also don't have your seatbelt on, they can also ticket you for that then, but they can't *just* pull you over for no seatbelt.  That *is* extreme.

I totally understand your anger.   :pissedoff:

:asthanos:  <---  guess the copz down there gots nuthin' better ta do on the way to da donut shop?

Jeez, I thought the cops out HERE were bad!  Their favorite scam is the "burnt-out license plate light." They must be on a quota system or bored out of their skulls or just having a bad day and because they have more rights than you or me, they can take it out on anyone they choose.
At least they didn't haul you in, Dan!  One of my old BFs got pulled over because we gave the finger to some undercover narcs (the assholes cut us off).  We got pulled over, and because he had a nickel's worth of weed and a Barbie-sized pocket knife, he was arrested. (At the time, a little bit of weed just got you a ticket.)  They had to do their big macho thing, he had to assume the position and all of the rest. They do it because they can, and that's the worst reason. :cussing:

They pulled you over for a "burned out license plate light". What the fuck is that? No one down here has any lights on their plates. Shit! A lot of cars don't even HAVE plates.

It's just the universe's way of pointing out that BIG BLACK CLOUD that's hanging over our lives at the moment. You know, the friggin' cherry on top of the dung pie.  :banghead:

I simply REFUSE to wear seatbelts 'cause years back, a friend of mine died when her car exploded and she couldn't get out cause the seatbelt jammed. Besides, think about it, you're allowed to drive a motorcycle WITHOUT a helmet down here. NO PROBLEM! But drive without a seatbelt surrounded by 2 tons of metal....that's a no-no. Just another example of loserania logic at work.

I hit the windshield once, and when I was belted in, I got knocked against the side window, but at the speed I was  going when I hit the side window, I would have been killed if I'd gone forward without the belt.  Damn those seatbelt laws!!!!!!!!!!!  (Both instances were my fault.  I used to be reckless, and drive the San Mateo Bridge doing 90, and all. . .when traffic was light enough to get away with it.  That was only because the car couldn't go any faster.  On the downhill (boat access rise) part, I could almost hit 100, but that wasn't very far.)  I used to be stooooooopid.  It's a thing most adolescents go through. . .and I guess I'm still waiting to grow out of it. :eyemouth:

In the middle of the night, in the winter of February 2001, as I was driving down icy I-75 on my way for a rendevous with my lady of the time, I spied a car in my blind spot tailing me, so I gradually reduced my speed so that they would go around-no such luck, so I pulled off the road altogether.  On go the the screamer lights of a state bull.  Shit.  They asked me what my problem was, I told them I thought they were some smart ass kids messing with me (that's happened to me before, and worse) so they made me get out of my truck, hand-cuffed me, and had me sit on the hood of their car while they checked me out, search-wise and computer-wise.  Then they let me go. Piss on them.

F*cking cops.  Power-tripping assholes, all.

Show me one who isn't.  Go on, I dare you.

Shit like this always makes me want to watch the cop part of "Thelma and Louise"; I sure wouldn't mind stuffing one of them in the trunk after revealing them for the pitiful power-tripping jerks that they are!  :pissedoff:
