You are, just candid. You're also an idiot who tried to change his name and just told on himself. Typical intelligence level of someone on AOLOLOSER.

Why not put fed warnings on chocolate and alcohol too....

For that matter frozen french fries, ring dings, pop tarts. Let's give some more starving artists a job out there.

All this at the same time there's still a big push to make weed legal.

Are they going to put picures of fatties on sweets? or mangled bodies on alcohol?

Sad to say this is what happens when the govenment picks and chooses what evils to support.

I feel sorry for cigarette smokers. Having a bad habit shouldn't make yourself opened to being fleeced.

BTW Happy Sunday!

Just another creative way to make money esp. with the push to make weed legal. Healthcare is unaffordable so were on the health kick now. Pretty soon you'll be fined for eating a Devil Dog.

Fines bring money in, I like the one where I read on here not too long ago some city is trying to push, where you can be fined for having an unlocked car.

I'm all for pushing good health excedra, but when rules and fines infringe on my freedoms, and come into my home, that's a NO NO in my book.

Fines and rules are meant to prevent from bad things happening, not just to make money off of people !!

I'm so glad I got that off my chest, I love to vent on here once inawhile. Thank you Topix for having
this forum ;-)

QUE: BTW You have a Happy Sunday too ;-)

Locked autos may stop some autos being stolen. We all have to pay extra for Ins and tax due to stolen autos. TRUE IT WILL NOT STOP A PRO., BUT IT MAY KEEP KIDS ECT FROM TAKING YOUR CAR FOR A JOY RIDE AND HURTING OR KILLING SOMEONE WHEN THEY CRASH. 0>:-]

Unfortunately the court system, who is supposed to be the "checks and balances" isn't preventing these legislative power grabs.

These things, like the San Francisco law to ban kids happy meals, should have been booted out years ago and the lawmakers that propose them impeached and removed from office.

No way should the folks in Harrisburg or Washington be sounding like our mother.

End rant! ;-)

We need to be sending letters to DC and Harrisburg to follow up our gripes. After all, every 2-4 years they want our vote. And they developed the bureaucracy that makes laws that we have to live by.

Just think, nobody elected the FDA, FTC or Surgeon General yet they can tell us what to eat.

Hope you got out today Suezanne, It was so nice to be out on the bicycle and in the convertible.

Insurance rates don't go up with unlocked car doors, they will not cover the loss that I know of. So the only person directly affected is the owner of the car. This is simply a ploy to make money on fines.
I think this infringes on peoples freedoms for the sake of this city wanting money.

About the kids taking a car for a joyride, and hurting or killing someone when they crash, well there is risk involved in every move we make while driving.
