<quoted text>There is two types of people who make up the vast majority of police recruits.
1)Meathead bullies who like to be in a position that gives them a sense of power over people so they can impose themselves on others and have a justification for being a bully.
2)People who have been bullied their whole lives and are seeking a position that will allow them to bully others the way they have.As a form of payback and self affirmation.
Both groups are dangerous.One is psychopathic. The other is sociopathic.
Never have I ever seen a more perfect description. Thanks.

Another fact is that parking meters are a government scam.The roads are paid for by our tax dollars. That makes them our streets. Why do we have to pay to park on our streets that we already paid for?

You are ABSOULTELY right!!!!

And the NYS Thruway!!!! Why are we STILL paying for THAT. That has been bought and paid for YEARS ago ... and the tolls keep going up!

I think the biggest question is WHY people put up with this kind of abuse from our elected officials???

We declaired our independance from England for 3% taxes ... we are now taxed up to 75%... federal, state, county, and sales. And politicians keep dreaming up new ways to take our money and people keep sitting back and letting it happen.

Yet another example of how a small group can ruin it for the masses. If meters weren't around I bet there'd be countless cars up on blocks in the streets

Question.
Do you have any idea what frivolous and archaic thing that serves no real purpose most of your Thru-way tolls your not supposed to pay any more go to?
The N.Y. State Thru-way is a perfect example of how our politicians will lie to get their pet projects put through.Now we have an old carpet bagging witch trying to tell us a high speed rail between N.Y.C. and Northern N.Y. would be a good idea.

The thing I find interesting with Thruway tolls is they have gone up over time and have found ways to take advantage (e.g if your ticket blows out the window or E-Z Pass doesn't read you'll get a bill for the amount it costs to travel the entire thing), but yet there are dozens of bridges way past-due for replacement. Plus, if you've ever been on a train you know how rough the rails are in NY, but the minute you cross the state line it's like night and day

I think the idea of the ferry had potential. To me it was a case of elected officials unable to properly implement a basic idea in a clear and thought out manner. It was not a bad idea in and of itself it just became a grandiose attempt for some to put their name in the spotlight.

I just don't use the damn thing. There are very few places that can't be reached by alternate routes in the same amount of time for less money. One just has to know how to properly read a map and plot a course.I refuse to pay for a giant ditch with my Thru-way tolls.

That is why the gummint keeps getting away with stealing your constitutional rights.

the TSA gets to search you wihtout probable cause ... and people just put up with it.

the gummint taps your phones and collects your emails, and you just put up with it.

the president gets to exicute people without that person going through due process ... and peole just put up with it.

Now Cuomo is planning to conficate our guns, and people are just gonna sit back and let it happen.

we live in a police state, we have the highest incarceration rate than any other country in the world ... and we let it happen.

Yeah, we are crazy.
