O.K. so we know the saying you can catch more flies with sugar than you can with vinegar. But we got two problems with that. 1. Who the hell wants a bunch of flies, and 2. Why sugar coat the truth. If our posts take on an increasingly acerbic tone, we do not ask your forgiveness. It is intentional. As the rest of the sheeple spend their liesure time working so hard at unemployment by watching Honey Boo Boo, Hoarders, and other low budget reality (whose reality?) shows designed to dumb down an already impressively dumbed down population balanced by the macho American independents playing "Sons of Anarchy" or FSU "wanna be's." The REAL tough dudes and dudettes are ripping yours and our ass off royally. And you know why, because for the most part American citizens are pussy's and freaking lay down while the King of Englands progeny rip em off.. I mean like hell our post on how Tallahassee's Capital City Bank disrespect of veterans sure set off a firestorm didn't it? See: Capital City Bank disrespects Tallahassee Veterans-back story. But hey, thats just veterans. Screw em right! While you wear your little American flag lapel pin and "these colors don't run" vest patch. Or talk about how much "we love our hero's" and stand in circles around gravesides like potted plants while the Kleptocracy plans the next stage of massive oil theft from the mideast in which we can kill more of our children. Well the patch may not be running but we do not see the patch wearers standing up for much of anything other than a safe "doggie run".
As an example w/ a H/T to Biker Rogue, emphasis and comments will be ours:
Florida drivers pay $7 million a year for driver's ed program that doesn't exist
Every time one of Florida's 14 million licensed drivers pays to renew their driver's license, they pay a 50 cent fee for drivers' education.
That fee has been raking in $7 million a year for a program that no longer exists, and has not for three decades.
OUR NOTE: Hello is that not called fraud? Is that not called theft? Is that not called a con job? Is any or all of the above against the law? If you our I fraudulently engaged in a theft by virtue of running an illegal con job on people would we not be in freaking jail????
WFTV learned the money is still being collected and has been collecting in Florida's general fund. Wolfgang Halbig, a former state trooper, believes in mandatory driver's education. He worked to get a driver's license fee passed in the 1970s that would pay for it for 50 cents a year. Just a few years later, lawmakers ended mandatory driver's education, but the fee did not go away.
"We abandoned driver's education, but guess what? We didn't remove the fees," Halbig said. The driver's education advocate said the fee should have disappeared with the program.
OUR NOTE: Well yeahhhhhhh......... because otherwise it is called stealing! It is called taking taxpayers money under false pretenses? Now we know the state ain't gonna cop to it but if you or I did it, it would be called ILLEGAL! It would be called "welcome to the rebar hotel boy"!
WFTV asked state Sen. David Simmons how this happened.
"It was originally intended with the best of intentions. There are other demands, and it went into general revenue," Simmons said.
OUR NOTE: Well what can you expect from Florida, land of the hanging chads. Where both candidates for Governor were also candidates for criminal prosecution. So now we have Rocket scientist Senator Simmons (and no we don't know or care what party he belongs to because they are all freaking crooks) saying "it was intended with the best of intentions"???? WTF??? What the hell does that mean??? Well I had the best intentions of selling you a good running motorcycle. But after I got your money which you gave me with good intentions thinking you were going to get something in return. I with good intentions, well better than yours anyway, swindled your ass out of your money and because we be politicians you can't do a damn thing about it so nanny nanny boo boo!
Simmons said he will look into correcting the problem.
"That's the reason it's great that people bring this up," Simmons said.
OUR NOTE: Well duh yeah thats the reason it's great people tell us they know we are ripping them off. Instead of what we should be doing like an old testament eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth and maybe a tar and feathering and run out of town with a piece of freaking cake. LET THEM EAT IT! WTF? Was that statement supposed to be an apology or something. Yes we were stealing from you, gee, sure glad you caught us. Maybe we will stop. We don't know though. We got to look into it first. PEOPLE, how freaking wussie are we gonna get????
Halbig said the worst part is he believes teens have died in crashes because they didn't take driver's education.
OUR NOTE: No Shit. You give a kid with no training a drivers license that allows him/her the ability to drive a four wheel pick em up through the middle of rush hour traffic towing a boat behind them and you think they may of killed somebody??? Go freaking figure. Is this another example of rational thought, critical thinking, or just a freaking lucky statistical guess?
Now, he said, he knows the money was there.
"When a parent grabs you, they know what it is, and it's not good news. And you have to take them to the morgue to show them their child. Come on, we can do better than that," Halbig said. Halbig would like to see mandatory driver's education restored in Florida.Yeah well good luck with that Cage drivers cause not only did the state of Florida steal our, motorcycle Riders, safety money trust fund, they make us pay a few hundred bucks for drivers education (MSF curriculum) that has absolutely no scientific, peer reviewed data, demonstrating it's effectiveness. Well there are a few that think it's pretty effective at getting people killed. PLUS we pay the freakin .50 cents. So we are getting ripped three times.
But thats o.k. because were big badass bikers that wear leathers and American flags with the "we don't run" and we don't put up with being screwed over, which of course is total bull because every citizen in this country, Biker or Not, is getting screwed over and arguing over which banker candidate they are going to vote for, because they think that will show em damn it.
Some Bikers wear a patch that say's "DILLIGAF," which translated means, Does it look like I give a FUCK! Well damn man/mam take the freaking patch off. You don't need it for just about any 5th grader to know you don't give a "F," because if you did you would get up off your ass and do something besides exhibiting ignorance thinking voting is going to make a freaking difference!
Well o.k. silly us. We made an assumption you voted someplace beside a bar.
But hey we ain't talking to just Bikers here. We are talking about every man and woman who claims to have read the declaration of independence and thought they was just joking when they wrote:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
