A quick note on states' rights

Posted December 4th, 2012 by porcupous

The problem is always the consolidation of power into the hands of a relative few. This problem is not alleviated via a representative democracy as the current system in the US clearly demonstrates.

The Role of Government

Posted November 27th, 2012 by porcupous

Over the past many decades, the federal government’s own internal debate on its responsibility has changed in a subtle but very important way. Before the change, the federal government would act in the marketplace when people believed that everybody had a right to something.

Court rules HOA cannot detain speeders on private streets

Posted November 10th, 2012 by phonon

The defendant HOA is governed by a board of directors. Prior to the events at issue, the board had established a security department for the development, bought vehicles for the department, fitted the vehicles with oscillating and flashing lights, radar units and audio/video recording equipment. The board adopted a speed limit of 25 mph for all the association's roads. Since violation of the Association's rules is not an "offense" justifying restraint, the plaintiff was entitled to summary judgment on his claim for false imprisonment.

Odd-Even Gas Rationing System Coming To New York City, Long Island

What happens if you disobey? "Those with license plates ending in an odd number will be able to buy gas on odd numbered days. Those with license plates ending in an even number will be able to buy gas on even numbered days."

Posted November 1st, 2012 by Jay Noone

thedotwatchdog.com looks like a very handy web site for truckers who want to know were D.O.T. is. DOT (Department of Transportation) a.k.a. truck police, are the armed tax collectors who specifically harass tuckers, landscapers and basically any one who may drive in a "commercial looking truck". I avoid DOT when ever I can, because even if everything goes well it is going to be an hour or 2 with the truck inspection.

Court OKs toll road operators detaining drivers who use large bills

Posted September 24th, 2012 by phonon

"The fact that a person is not free to leave on his own terms at a given moment, however, does not, by itself, mean that the person has been 'seized' within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment," the court wrote in its unsigned decision. "In Florida, a person's right and liberty to use a highway is not absolute; it may be regulated in the public interest through reasonable and reasonably executed regulations." The judges found it was reasonable for Fanueil to set regulations for use of the road -- including the types of acceptable payment.

Speed trap? There's an app for that

(CBS News) It's a code all drivers share: A flash of the high beams is a warning there's a speed trap ahead.

But when police in Florida saw one man doing it, he got slapped with a $115 speeding ticket.

His case was overturned, but in some states, it is illegal to warn other drivers there is a speed trap ahead. Arizona and Alaska forbid flashing of high beams, while the states of New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia allow it.
