WTF did I say that? I said that there are people who are driving around for a purpose be it work, retired, being supported by their spouse or whatever. But it doesn't justify the amount of traffic on the road during a typical work day. And given the fact that half of our population is either partially or entirely supported by working taxpayers, it's reasonable to conclude that at least half of the people I see on the roads or streets are being supported by my tax dollar.
Must I remind you of what you wrote last night?

I'm not talking about a couple of cars, I'm talking about a lot of cars. I often wished I had the authority to set up a booth on the highway just to stop people and ask what they do for income when they are on the highway instead of at work? I would really like to know what I'm doing wrong.

You're too stupid to admit it but instructions were given to the jury for SYG. O'Mara wanted the jury to decide SYG, and they did.
You're a nut job.
SYG laws apply to a defendant that opted not to leave a situation where they felt threatened. That's not what happened here. What happened is Zimmerman was walking back to his vehicle and was violently attacked from a thug that came out of the darkness. That's not SYG and this was a case of the state prosecuting Zimmerman of second degree murder.

Do you make a mental note of the makes/models of the cars and the racial make up of the drivers?
If I see someone going the speed limit, I think they are riding dirty. I don't care who they are. LOL

People driving----not a good employment indicator.
Now those folks milling around retail stores or leisurely dining anywhere in the middle of the day.
That can tell you a little something...just a little.

WHY PEOPLE DRIVE CARS

Adding.....

To cruise around town - it's cool, generation upon generation of young people do it.

To go visit somebody.

To go on a vacation.

To escape a confrontation.

To give a friend, spouse or relative a ride to somewhere.

Yes I make that assumption. Of course I understand that there are reasons people are not working: retired, sales or other position that requires driving, kids out of school, vacation or some other paid time off, but that doesn't justify all of those people.
Now why would somebody be wondering why I was on the highway when I'm driving a tractor-trailer? I think that's pretty simple to figure out--even for you.

I adamantly disagree!

In today's world, fewer and fewer jobs involve Monday to Friday, 8:00 - 5:00 hours.

After we conclude WHY PEOPLE DRIVE CARS, would you be interested in the next topic of TYPES OF JOBS THAT INVOLVE SHIFTWORK OR NON-STANDARD HOURS OF EMPLOYMENT?

Sorry, you can pretend that you're "old" but it's very obvious by the lack of maturity in your words that you're playing what you think is an amusing game by pretending to be an adult.
Oh please. I know when I'm discussing issues with a kid. Your posts are proportional with somebody that lacks experience in life. You will find out. When you get older, you learn more things. Your views change.

When I was younger, I was a liberal. I believed in legalization of narcotics. I was against the death penalty. I was against any kind of war. I believed that the federal government should take care of people.

After working ten years with people in poverty and paying taxes out of my azz, I started to learn things.

This is how I can tell you are much younger than I: you lack real life experience. It's obvious in most all of your replies and posts.

Last night "you" couldn't type a word with more than two syllables.

Today you obviously attempting to backtrack.

Not at all. Our new society has to learn to control their anger. Nobody should be in a position of being punched unless they agreed to an honest fight. If somebody punches me, then I am being attacked and I have no idea what my attackers plans are.
If you don't want to get shot and die, then don't punch anybody; simple as that. But if you are one of those people who simply cannot control their anger, then like Trayvon, you will end up as worm food and it's perfectly legal.
Example.

I would give six months paychecks to be 18 years old again. But you might not understand that until you reach my age sonny.
Let's try this again: nobody can make you angry. You can only make yourself angry. A person may try to make you angry, but entering a state of anger is your decision--not anybody else's. Being angry, sad, happy, humorous is not in control of anybody else but you unless you have an extremely weak mind.
There is nobody that can provoke me to pull out my gun unless in self-defense. There is nobody that can provoke me to hit them, spit on them, or insult their family. Nobody can puppet me into physical action. I have to make the decision to take action on my own. I can also decide not to take physical action. That's my decision and nobody has control over my body except myself.
And this......the essay should be titled REGURGITATION!
