Fern(Mi)    Posted 03-10-2004 at 05:47:16       [Reply]  [No Email] it may seem, I'm wondering if the authorites are going to put those bee's in jail that caused the moutian climber to have fallen and died.
Seems some authority is jailing somebody someplace all the time for whatever.
Might be what we all need is a nice quiet cell to come home to right from birth. We could raise ourselves prepunished for jay walking, forgetting payment, non-tipping, and tax deductions.

The Martha Stewart thing is setting me off. If need be, fine her, save the cell for some hardened criminal. Can't imagine useful rehabilitating education learned off-a jail-cell wall.

Now, Mich is fineing drivers for day late vehical & personal licesnce applications. Somebody's found a new way to balance the budjet. They do it upon the poor folks backs. Another poor man's punishment.

And, this is what we're turning over to our kids?
It ain't no laughing matter. `Nough soap boxing.

Hi Fern,

Yup, give M. Stewart, community service, or something. I think they "got her", just to "take her down" anyway.

Right now in Muncie IN, just North of Indpls.
They are looking for a guy that, along with 2 others, robbed a college student, after a party, KILLED him for TWO that's
2 Dollars.
Heckuva thing, Hunnh?

It gets worse & worse.
'Til Later............

Every time some thing happens it seems they are searching through their law books looking for some way to charge some one . There's never any accidents any more it's always some ones fault . Big fines and law suits .
If you don't have your insurance slip it's a $300 fine or lose your license . Did you see on the news this morning that some woman in some down state town is starting
a campaign to get rid of that one ? The cops get some of that so they are really pushing it .
I say get rid of the requirement to have insurance and you would see the cost drop drastically . Or a better way would be insure your self . so what ever you drove ,rode in , climbed on , ate or what ever you are covered to the amount you want . but that wouldn't either I suppose .

your moniker is correct!
if your are late to renew your car registration, late to renew your auto or house ins., late to get your vehicle inspected, late to pay your taxes, late for your doctor appt., late to pay your electric bill, late to pay your water bill, late to pay garbage bill, late to pay your cable bill, late to pay or do almost anything it usually is YOUR (onself) fault. god how i get tired of people looking for excuses for not taking care of their business. (of course there are sometimes mitigating circumstances)

west virginia is no better. when i first got here i couldn't believe they tax everything!! when i lived in Massachusetts I thought it was bad but at least they didn't tax things like food. I"m all for taxing luxury but when you tax things like food only the poor suffer.w.v. even tried to tax people who came from the small towns to work in charlestown and such like $1 a day saying the used the town resources and most of these people work at mcdonald's and such making minimum wage. some politician decided i wasn't a good idea and seems to have put a stop to that nonsense

Yep...... I am paying the $1.00 a week for the privilege of working in Charleston..... and I don't even live in the same county. Actually, I'm not paying it.. that sounds as if I readily give it up... fact is..... it is removed from my paycheck before I even get it!!!! Next, WV will tax the air I breathe in Kanawha County! Think I will refrain from using the "facilities" in town.... just hold it til I get home! lol
