ya everything he does IS good! These cities and counties would ticket us for stepping on the cracks on the sidewalk if they could! The poikice are nothing but a goon squad for collecting the money they need to pay their massively overpaid workers and botched city planning prokects. The poor suffer, the rich pay nothing in taxes, and we might well call ourselves the united facist states of america

Wait a minute....not so fast. Eyman has done wonderful things for this state.


As for redlight cameras I am open for discussion. Redlight cameras seem to be a revenue maker vice a safety issue in most cities. Having lived in Anchorage, where the majority of the abusers run red lights 10 seconds after the red, I agree with them. But some localities here seem to be taking them too far

Ignore the man and concentrate on the issue.

Being against the red light cameras is being against obeying traffic laws. Do these toads also want POPO to ignore stop signs and speed limit signs? Do they also tell their kids to only obey the laws they like? Laws are there for a reason no matter if you agree with them or not. Break them and you get EXACTLY what you deserve.

You moron just because its a law doesn't mean it's right! there's a million laws these rich greedy polititions ans municipalities have enacted for the "safety" of our citizens designed soley for producing revenue for themselves! I'm against ANY law like that. The fines should reflect the crime. if I'm speeding 12 over I don't deserve a 200 dollar fine, speeding signs changed from block to blck! If I make $9 i can either oay my rent or my ticket, so i pay my rent, become a criminal, my license is suspended, then i get pulled over, charged with driving on a suspended and go to jail, lose my job, my car, everything. Only the rich can afford to even get to work in this disgusting state. You are a rich facist, when the revolution starts your house is the first we're coming to reclaim the disparity of wealth from you rich tax dosdging scum. if you rich scum paid the tazes you should the cities wouldn't need to nickle and dime the poor into criminality! you make me sick... I hope the revolution comes soon, your hoarding of the wealth has become so extreme i can't go to the doctor or dentist or even drive to my job where i make mothing and have no beefits. this country should be dismantled completely and revuilt upon the constitiopn, the leash has tightened to the point where it needs to be reset.

Your totally asinine defiance of our country,state,and city laws is exactly why we have POPO. If you choose not to follow laws, they put you in a place where your behavior won't affect those who can and do follow the rules. Perhaps some quality time in a nice room with three meals a day,medical care, and all bills paid would give you time to cool down,get your GED or diploma,learn a trade and get your head back on straight. Peace!

A diploma and 1.5 years of schooling and you still can't compose a paragraph and spell correctly.???? hummmmm. Many people work at places like WalMart AND go to trade school or college . Those jobs should not be a stopping point but a place to pay bills while YOU do something about your future. It's either that or stay in your self made rut forever. It's your move.

SOMEONE has to work at walmart! SOMEONE has to work at mcdonalds! WHy do we deserve not to at least have a small apt and enough to eat! I hope you lost a fotune in stock market... one day, it feels like soon, the poor will take bake what you've stolen from us and rebuuld this great country. you're nthing but a nunch of greedy worthless empy scum. I honestly don't know how you could even sleep or not just drive your car off a bridge knowing who you are and what you could be doing to hep people. you're not a "job creator" you're a wealth hoarder.

The world doesn't owe you a living just for occupying space. You have an absolute right to mold your future and an equal right to jobs you QUALIFY for. Either do something with your qualifications and level of learning or wallow in self pity forever.It's up to you!
