Sounds pretty accurate to me, when you figure in the farm machinery.:grin:

I wish this board had a "Like" option. I would use it whenever the post makes me smile - which is a lot. I like the humor on this board.

I live very near Tacoma, WA. We have a serious problem with a culture of corruption in all levels of government in this state. (ok well, who doesn't right?!!)

We are known for our dirty cops.

http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread....on-stories!

For years we had a drunk driving commercial that stated,
"Drive hammered, get nailed!" then we found out that our cops were
parking outside clubs and bars and following nice looking women a few blocks away and then pulling them over. They then described in detail how this shiny new DUI was going to utterly destroy their life and then offered them a way out. Wives, mothers, daughters, and girlfriends were all systematically preyed upon by scumbag cops who were being paid by our hard-earned tax dollars to rape them. Most were never reported because of shame at the thought of going through a public trial or fear of what 'the blue brotherhood' might do to them. Now read the slogan again. Yep, they made a lot of jokes about it.

I was raised to respect police officers. I have high school friends and other friends in various levels of law enforcement. My oldest brother was an mp in the air force. But the older I get and the more I experience, I know that the system breeds abuse. Putting a badge on someone doesn't magically instill a set of moral values in them. Limited powers and accountability are desperately needed to keep all levels of government from becoming a culture of corruption.

Do you realize how many officers kill an innocent either intentionally or accidently 'in the line of duty' and get off with a slap on the wrist? It's outrageous. Some don't even lose their jobs or pensions.

I think all officers should have to wear cameras. Take them off the traffic signals and strap them to officer's uniforms. It should record every thing they say and do. It should record the entire interior of their vehicle and around their vehicle. I also think this should be the same for monitoring people in public office. If they want to record our every movement and phone call, then turn about is fair play. All politicians should have to submit to searches, checkpoints, random drug tests, record every phone call, medical reports, and so on. If they are going to live off our tax money, they should forfeit their privacy. Just like we select random jury pools for trials, each year across the country thousands of citizens should do their duty and form panels to oversee performance reviews on judges, police officers, school administration, any public elected or appointed office. No section of city, county, state, or federal government department should be exempt from public accountability to citizen panels. I know you think this would be impossible but it wouldn't, especially if the government was downsized to an appropriate functioning size.

Also term limits for every level of elected or appointed office. No more that two terms or eight total years. Period. Even (actually especially) the Supreme Court. Too much power rests in the hands of too few for too long.

I could go on but I simply don't have the time. You see, when I got up on January 1st of this year, I had to turn over 100% of my hard earned money to the government (city, county, state, federal) each and every day. I didn't get to start keeping any till about the second week of June. In fines, fees, levees, taxes, permits, licenses, and so forth the government takes almost half our money. YOU and I are slaves for almost half a year, EVERY YEAR of our adult tax paying lives. Slaves to a government that wastes those dollars on foreign countries that hate us, wars that we shouldn't be in, corporations that are destroying us from the inside out, and lining their pockets all the while.

The other half of my money is practically stolen by the corporations, banks, and insurance companies that lobby our government into complete and utter submission. Some day it has to end, whether by us or our children.

I know I may have offended some people with my last post. Controversial topics like this cannot help but offend someone. I find that no reason not to discuss important matters like this though. (yes, a double negative.)

Here is an example of what I was saying. When law enforcement is not given proper vetting, oversight, and held to the same standard as citizens, then you have a situation that fosters abuse.

Here is an article about the 'punishment' the officer received.
"David Corob 1 hour ago Just looked it up, The officer got 3 YEARS on a manslaughter charge, I have heard weed peddlers and child support bums getting more." My thoughts exactly.

It is this unquestioning support of authority that attracted and sustained so many child molesters into the priesthood of the Catholic Church. ...ok, I can hear the collective steam whistle out of my fellow forum readers ears. I am not trying to provoke by sounding antipatriotic or antireligious. I am actually quite religious and patriotic. The topic (at least to me) is about accountability.

Normal law abiding citizens should be called each year by the thousands to form review panels that have the power to review complaints, remove from office, fire from positions, or even arrest and charge government workers and elected officials. Yes, there would have to be a hierarchy of civic court to do this with a form of limited appeal, but it should be in place so that the government (local, state, and federal) was more accountable to the people. Our current system is broken and too easily corruptible.

The big controversy around here is: it pronounced Less-ter or Lee-sess-ter? Years ago, a radio staion once did a study over time. When a caller said they were from Leicester, the DJ would ask if they drove a car or a truck. After nearly a year, they announced the result (no one but them knew they were doing it). The overwhelming divide was if you drove a truck, you pronounced it Less-ter. Car drivers called it the other name (which is incorrect, according to the Brits). There were so few switch hitters, it was shocking.

I drive a truck.
When my husband answered this question earlier, we DID live in Knoxville. We have since moved to Polk County, NC to Tryon
