There's another way to free up millions and millions of tax dollars. Simply have some inspectors walk through the offices of all government agencies and immediately fire everyone who is asleep. That should eliminate about 50% of 'em.

I'm tired of paying more and more "fees" knowing full well that in the real world most of the money is squandered through incompetence, featherbedding and general corruption.

Lying criminals in charge of govt agencies is nothing new, true. In fact, it is the usual state of affairs. However seldom do you see that corruption enshrined in your face in written law.

Or deny things that did.

..like the ahole who hit me, in the police report he said: "I was honking the horn, but he wouldn't get out of my way".

When I asked the police dept if that wasn't an admission of criminal behaviour on the SUV drivers part, the detective said "No, it was most likely a language barrier, as the guy is a hard working immigrant."

Go figure. He got a $350.00 ticket, and I got screwed for life.

Good point Browning_Bar... In WA state if he got a ticket he is liable.. Even if he doesn't have insurance.You can garnish up to 10% of his wages for life until the judgment is paid off. The downside is that it could take up to 3 years or more to settle it out of court.. The state only requires liability insurance of 10,000 or so.. So after that it comes from his pocket unless he has more liability insurance.. ..

In the peepoles republik of kalifornia you just need $10,000.00 medical liability insurance. Simce this jerk lives in a run down 1 bedroom apartment, with no real assets, I could sue him, but I would have to forgo the ten grand if I did. And even if we did get a judgement, the bozo would just go back to Usbekistan or wherever the hell he came from, and I'd be even more screwed. So we took the 10 g's and that was that, he's off the hook. But all is not lost, since I just got a new Leupold 3x9 for my HK91.

That's a solid scope to go with a hell of a rifle.

I was afraid of that.. $10,000.. doesn't do jack these days.. it should be much higher.. if people can't afford a $100,000 liability policy that then they can take the frackin bus. Good hunting mscuddy.
