Some people will say, if we privatize roads, someone will monopolize the roads and prevent people from using them. Like the government does if you dont register your car and pay their extortion fees. They’ll claim the road is public, but then not allow you to use it if you dont pay em. Sounds like the worst case scenario already happened.
People say you should pick your battles wisely. Tell me why you dont tell your supposed Representives this? Tell me why you dont tell cops this. Tell me why you dont tell judges this. They’ve chosen the battle. They’re the ones who decided to limit your freedom, not me. Maybe they should choose their battles more wisely. Maybe they should stop aggressing against people for not having a sticker on their car. This is not a battle worth fighting. So just stop! Thank you.
Someone expressed to me concern about going to Mass. to protest as a “free stater.” That they’ll target you if they know you’re a free stater.
Despite my observations that there’s a sign saying “Police State” at every other exit (or was it “State Police”? I forget.), I havent found that to be the case. We’ve only dealt with the cops once however.
We went down there for an End the Fed rally with a bullhorn with a Live Free or Spaz sticker and cops were unable to intimidate us and decided not to arrest.
It actually isnt in their best interests to arrest free staters. When they arrest a free stater, it draws attention to them. The kind of attention they probably dont want. They’ll get tons of phone calls and mail that they most likely dont want to have to deal with. People would likely come down and protest the arrest as well. They dont want that. And free staters are a lot less likely to pay a fine, so there’s no financial incentive to arrest a free stater. If they knew what was good for em, they’d leave free staters alone.
Maybe we’re just lucky. Maybe we got the cops on a good day. Maybe we got the nice cops. Maybe its cuz it wasnt just free staters, there were people from Mass. and Maine as well.
Maybe the cops finally realized, if we just leave em alone, they’ll come protest and leave. If they arrest you, you become a liability. It just isnt good for their PR.
Maybe Senator Maggie Hassan might be part right when she said, “There’s nothing wrong with developing systems that give good people incentives to do the right thing.”
Crafty marketing wizards at Disney have found a way to market the same set of cards to little kids by selling them as a game, Go Fish, Crazy Eights, etc. They’re the same cards! You can play a whole bunch of games with em! Well that is until you start losing cards and you only have 1 or 2 cards from each deck.
My roommate’s girlfriend’s daughter left some of her cards in the kitchen and I was looking at em. And I noticed there was 2 different designs for the princess cards and i thought that was stupid, why’d they put 2 different designs on the back and then I realized it was 2 different sets of cards. well. OK. That’s Corporate media empires for you!
