Good idea, just like the town that makes the pediphiles have yellow mailboxes.
They proposed that in MI a while back. It never passed .Instead, the lowered the limits drastically, and can just take all your registered vehicles, and any unregistered vehicles on your property at a second offense.
i think i remember the cops did not want to have to take the plate off the vehicle. carrying tools and bad weather.you still get the paper plate now though. the city gives it to you.
what they really need is....
They should get a striped uniform,a long jail sentence,and a nice pair of Nike sneakers upon release,if they harm anyone while DWI...I see headlines every night here..."Driver arrested for 5th DWI offence"..some 10 or more times!..usually after they hit another car... ..I say if you get caught twice,your STUPID,and deserve to WALK everywhere from then on!..(or stagger,as the case may be)...
I admit I have driven drunk in my younger days a good many times..a few times I woke up in my yard at 3 am,with my truck still running,parked on the front lawn sideways,and the headlights still on! ....but after I drove home from a birthday party 3 sheets to the wind and ran over several mailboxes,after I blacked out for a moment,I decided my driving after drinking days were over..they could have just as easily been people,and I'd have been locked up,and my life ruined!! ...
3 weeks later,a good friend dies in a wreck...the cause??..DWI...and everyone thought it was so COOL to get drunk every weekend..yeah,it was..IF you had a place to stay and sleep it off!..we used to drink IN our vehicles,even while driving,since none of our parents would let us drink at their homes or in the yards...and then we'd have to drive home--ALONE!..thats when a lot of the "fatals" occour.. ...glad I dont do that anymore..if I drink now,its at home!!..and I STAY there until I'm sober!...
I'm down for that. Public humiliation is cheap but effective....
I like the yellow mailbox deal too. Anybody know where that actually was?
A friend of mine is a substance abuse counsler. He teaches those all-day saturday must go by court order first time offender classes, among others. He told me once, statistics. If you get caught once, there's a 70% chance you'll get caught a second time. If you get caught twice, there's a 90% chance you'll be back a third time.
He said he starts the first-offender sessions out by having everyone raise thier hand, then he tells 3 out of 10 people to lower their hands, and everyone left with their hand raised is going to be back, statiscally speaking. And then, the room is quiet.
Of course, he tells me every chance he get's that I should go to one of his classes. My response is: I don't drive drunk, why should I go?
I heard they will be coming out with all kinds of new plates soon,
Orange = DWI
Red = DUI
Rainbow = GAy
Smoker = Brownish Black
Under 21 = Florescent Yellow
Owns a gun = Blood spattered Red
Speeding ticket = Blue w/stripes
unpaid Parking tickets = $$$ signs all over it
Over 55 w/white hair = <---- (this dude)
Prostitution = Hot Pink
Smokes Pot or does drugs = Flashing solor powered blinkers
Watches Porn on TV or visits the pig pen = Purple
Failure to use blinkers = <---- 01234 ---->
Had a car accident = Beat up looking (when new)
Any other minor offense including spitting on the sidewalk or jay walking = Blue
Driving an illegal 4x4 on the street = Chevy Orange w/ Black strips.
and so on and so on..........
You get the idea.
Not to condone drinking or ANY illegal activities but if they start tagging anyone like that, when will they stop?
Just give BIG BROTHER a chance and he'll mark you for life.
Someday when your wearing a uniform because it means your OK and never do anything wrong, you might think back and wonder why.
Now I know why the USA is going down hill.
Sorry, had to vent

But he has a point. Anyone know what happened when they first discussed social security numbers? People were so scared citizens would simply turn into numbers to the govt (rather than actual people... another example of the big brother paranoia right?) that it was largely opposed until promises were made that the SSN would never be used for anything other than... social security. Now you almost can't order a pizza without giving out your SSN.
Im not suggesting SSN's are bad, especially in today's computerized world, but it does show that when you give an inch, sometimes they will take a mile, without you even realizing it.
If you ever wondered why our government issued identity 'tag' has the words "social security" in front of it when we in fact rarely use it for such, now you know...
all things considered ... maybe people have a reason to be scared. They are always watching ... even if you chose not to believe it ... they are.
I have news for you folks. It isn't just the government. Any person or corporation can have almost every little tidbit of information on you in about 20 min. that they want. People get unlisted phone numbers, don't give out their address to people, block numbers, open P.O. boxes, etc. thinking they are protecting their privacy. While this is all well and good for the average crook, anybody with even a little bit of savvy can have your home address, credit status, vehicles you drive, credit rating, loan balances, employer address, criminal history, SSN, DL number, etc. etc. in no time. In fact, the government quite frankly doesn't spend very much time worrying about the average citizen and doesn't keep a "dossier" on all of us. But, private corporations do. The reality is, if it weren't for the government, aka your elected officials, passing laws protecting your privacy, these corporations would be far more pervasive. I have no worries about the government intruding on my privacy. Most governmental agencies have so much red tape and incompetence in them that they will only screw up a minority of people's situations. I am far more concerned about private companies with deep pockets misusing my private information. The truth is, within the federal government agencies infight and bicker to no end. Then you have state and local agencies doing the same thing. None of them are on the same page and cooperation is minimal at best. Add on top of this the fact that local and state agency personnel trust the feds about as far as they can throw them and you have plenty of protections in place. The simple solution is to pay attention to who you vote for. Put people into office that represent your concerns. After that, you might as well relax because you gain nothing by wringing your hands and worrying.
So how do those penis enlargement ****ers get my email address?
From the "Fleshlight"s that you ordered by the pallet.....
This ain't "big brother" looking for you. You have to go out and independently do some dumb s**t to get hit by this one. I'll bet you that I never have to worry about it.
Desert Rat is right about corporations by the way. If I have your name and the city where you live I can tell you your birthdate, SS#, mothers maiden name and names of your neighbors 5 houses down. I can get this in 30 seconds for less than $5. The only real qualifications are that you have a computer, a credit card and a heartbeat...
So thats where they came from...
Nice call with the Fleshlights. I actually ordered just one box, but they sent me a whole damn pallet. I was thinking aboot offering some to Can Can for Canucktion prizes, but figured it would be a pig pen deal.
Anywho, I call bull****. CBBR, or anyone who will post up results:
My name is Nathaniel Rich, and I live in Centralia, Washington 98531. Get what you can.
Yer a chocolate bunny w/ a bad smoking habit.. see how easy that was...
If you get a DWI you shouldn't have a fkn plate for anything but a bicycle or one that they have to wear around their neck and it should say DUMBASS on it . If I see a drunk driver I'm on the cell phone calling the cop's and following the jerk until someone show's up to put the person in cuff's . They yellow mail boxes for the perv's is a great idea . Would they put them at the catholic churches . I'm leaving now ....... I hear canmans foot step's
