Year ago, I was traveling out of state and got a speeding ticket. The cop had to "cut" me out of a group of cars traveling together at the same speed. He then tried to tell me that I was going 95 miles an hour - in an eight year old Kia Rio. He at least had the decency to blush when I pointed out that fact to him. I got a ticket for going 75 MPH in a 60 MPH zone. The only difference between me and the other cars in the group was my out-of-state license plate.

Even further back in time, my brother's then girlfriend got a ticket railroad crossing. We had been stopped for a few minutes. Her foot slipped off the clutch and the car rolled forward a bit. The cop behind up turned on his lights and jumped out of the car. He was originally going to write her a ticket for not stopping at a railroad crossing - until the three other people in the car pointed out the large, loud, fast-moving training flying past us on the other side of the crossing barrier. He gave her a ticket for not having her seat belt on - the same seat belt he watched her remove so she could grab her purse from the floorboard behind her.
Life is but a momentary glimpse of the wonder of the astonishing universe, and it is sad to see so many dreaming it away on spiritual fantasy.~Carl Sagan

In Phoenix, AZ, they tried doing photo enforcement. Sadly, they had to stop because people weren't paying the fines because they could get out of paying fines if they just "didn't receive the ticket." There was also a law suit that a lawyer cheating on his wife one because his wife saw the photo of the her husband speeding with someone who wasn't her in the passenger seat.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Feeling really ..... just frustrated I guess, with some people back home. There was a terrible car accident, and in one vehicle, there were 3 kids from all different families. One died, one ended up in the hospital, and nothing is said about the 3rd child.
So a lot of "thoughts and prayers" (when will people get tired of this phrase?) have gone out to the family of the deceased kid. But everyone is having a Glory, Hallelujah time over the child who just came home from the hospital after a week of care. But because he's coming home with no surgeries or casts or anything, everyone is just praising Jesus for his mighty healing hand and his tender mercies that are new each day... it makes me want to throw up. What about that child who was killed???? Where were the Tender Mercies when he was gasping his last breath? Where was the Mighty Healing Hand? Oh, THAT'S right, God has a reason and a plan for everything. So we will just praise Jesus through the storm!
 I just feel like if I was his family, I would be losing my mind, reading all the shit posted about how great God is.
