"Ignorance of the law is not an excuse ... unless you're a liberal ... and then it makes all the difference in the world."

Except that, in this particular case, an ordinance was changed and the people were not informed ("signs were missing or not visible"). Do you really think that was an accident?

"Thank God I'm surrounded by adults on this conservative forum."

Since when are conservatives (adult or otherwise) supposed to mindlessly rubber-stamp anything and everything done by government? And since when do we support petty tyrants and the ordinances they put in place for the sole purposes of revenue generation?

The motivation for the ordinance doesn't matter. The ordinance does.

Since when am I supposed to mindlessly rubber-stamp anything and everything done by government and when do I support petty tyrants and the ordinances they put in place for the sole purposes of revenue generation?

I'd suggest working to identify, motivate, and advance a suitable candidate for your local government body. Then exercise your franchise during the next election cycle.

There are natural consequences that even petty tyrants can't escape. If every one stayed home from the parade the parking restrictions would soon be lifted and the tyrants would be turned out of office.
