Happy New Year

Some new CA regulations you may have heard rumors about go into effect Jan 1, 2011.

I've got nothing against cops, they don't make these laws. Hell, I'm pretty good friends with several LEO and they are outstanding people. None of them are CHP though, so I can make fun of the chippers.

Check the CHP's own link to this. Welcome to nannyland.

Another one. Looks like you better build your own exhaust so there is no manufacturer's stamp...

fuck that. fuck doing what you're told by a corporate-controlled government.


The supreme court noted in saenz v roe (1999), the constitution does not contain the word "travel" in any context, let alone an explicit right to travel (except for members of congress, who are guaranteed the right to travel to and from congress). the presumed right to travel, however, is firmly established in u.s. law and precedent. in u.s. v guest (1966), the court noted, "it is a right that has been firmly established and repeatedly recognized."

in fact, in shapiro v thompson (1969), justice potter stewart noted in a concurring opinion that "it is a right broadly assertable against private interference as well as governmental action. like the right of association... it is a virtually unconditional personal right, guaranteed by the constitution to us all."

it is interesting to note that the articles of confederation had an explicit right to travel and it is now thought that the right is so fundamental that the framers of the words giving us liberty may have thought it unnecessary to include it in the constitution or the bill of rights.

so do your research. print cards. give them to any cop who stops you because of your exhaust of license plate angle. a license itself has not been proven to be constitutional nor legal as our founders considered our wide opens spaces. they are merely forms to track us, categorize us, and monitor us.

fuck that.

Surely parallel to the ground means the plate is horizontal, like the ground. They must mean perpendicular. Wankers can't even get their laws right.
