Give this stinking program another couple of years and someone will run for mayor on the platform of removing these thieving cameras. Whoever it may be they will surely have my vote.
Another person who gets it. Excellent post!

You know I tried to treat you with respect and debate with you. As usual you had to attack me personally and pop off with your mouth. You're the one who doesn't get it because you're a typical El Pasoan who wants no accountability and takes no responsibility. It's people like you that require check points and intersection cameras.

I'm just pointing out that you sound like a fool, always talking about what a perfect person you are.
No one cares! Stick to the subject.

Whats next? Cameras set up around your house to make sure you turn your lights off in a proper time.

I have an idea. How about not running a red light and violating the law. That way the city can't collect the money and there won't be any burden on you.

Still the loser joke you are. Always and forever. I would love to meet you in person to see with my own eyes how a moron like you walks the earth. You are truly the dumbest person in post. No surprise being the socialist piece of garbage you are. It must suck to be you.
BTW, Lier is spelled LIAR, Mr. Brain-thrust.

Here's a thought.
Why don't we all drive the speed limit, Not run any red lights, Keep our alcohol level below the limit, and go to bed early, that way we can do away with this ridiculous issue.
In My Opinion!!!

Your right. I have been very self indulgent in my post.
I don't mean to come across as an ignorant redneck, but that is just who I really am.

And yes I'm posting this from the public library.

HaHaHa! Someone has used my name! If that isn't a compliment to myself I don't know what is. It took one person to bring me to this level of status. I thank no one but myself. It is obvious my intellect, status as an Elitist and general educator of the moronic has led to this great honor. Thank you, I wish I could be more humbled but I am just too self righteous.

If I were in any way involved in this camera thing, I would be so embarassed and ashamed. IT IS CLEARLY A CONFLICT OF INTEREST. The City is the judge and a party in this camera mess. Massaging and telling the side of the "facts" is just so hypocritical. Shame on them. Time to make change in at City government.
