Roving mobs of citizens doing good for others. What has the world come to ? Where will it end ?
Save us from good deeds !!!!!!
>>>One of the inspectors, Linda Desruisseaux, said that one of the six liked to taunt her by saying, Linda, guess what youre not going to do today write tickets.>>>>
Mild taunt... perhaps,
“Linda, guess what youre not going to do today write tickets.”
Oh, the humanity.
I dunno. Usually, if someone tells me they’re going to make it unnecessary for me to complete a significant amount of paperwork, I wouldn’t classify that as harassment.
A great example of citizens standing up to over-bearing, trough-feeding political pigs.
This is how local governments confiscates money. They not only rely on violations, they seek them out. Here in NY State, Towns and Villages routinely set up traffic stops to check for expired inspection stickers or registrations. The police who do this are ALWAYS paid overtime.
I was stopped two weeks ago for failing to have my new 2012 car re-inspected. The fine was $50, the surchage to the local government was $85 making the total bill $135! This is going on all over and is a pure abuse of trust and power.
O M G !
The Nerve !
The HORROR !
Off with the peasant's head, and give that tissue-skinned a full PTSD pension !
ban quarters. if it prevents just one nervous ticket writer, it’s worth it.
Beautiful, just beautiful! I love it!
And they are true images of the legendary Robin Hood, not the myth of Robin Hood stealing from the rich and giving to the poor but the ancient portrayal of him as taking from unauthorized tax collectors and giving it back to the people.
Is it just Parking Inspectors, or should this be all government employees when faced with their obligation to perform tasks that most people find unpleasant or un-needed? Just think if Nancy Pelosi had to follow such a job rule...
And Parking Inspector? Seems pompous. I wonder if the Beatles would have done, "Hector, Lovely Parking Inspector" if that job title existed back in the day.
"I fart in your general direction."
"Don't follow leaders/Watch your parking meters"
Recently there was a thread about shortened yellow-lights, to induce tickets from red-light cameras.
Are these parking meters digital? If they are do they keep accurate time or do they run fast?
this is the part that will really get them in trouble. wait til disney hears about it.
Parking meters = parking tax collected with the same zeal as the IRS targets conservatives for audit.
I got a 20 dollar ticket at 6:00pm for being at one of them. The meters are supposed to stop at 5:00 when people got out of work, but they found that keeping some until 6 would nab a nice cash shot because most of us have no idea that they would have done something like this.
The fact that they think they are Robin Hood is hilarious. These left wing blogger morons vote for Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham every election.
As for the hatred of parking meters I'm ambivalent. Should we tax everyone or just people who can't tell time?
These Robin Hood guys are RACIST!
These are refugees from the ‘Free State Project’...Keene is their ‘headquarters’ for all intents and purposes, since the influx of rude/arrogant New Yorkers (spit) has muted their influence in the rest of the state. ‘Free State’, my *ss...more government regulation in Red Hampshire than I have seen anywhere.
I haven’t gotten a parking ticket in probably 8 years or so, but that’s only because I got so many of them so consistently that I decided I just HAD to make sure I had plenty of quarters in my pocket whenever I had a job in the grinding, traffic-clogged burg of FT. LEE, NEW JERSEY, which was very often , since I had a bunch of regular customers who had various Real Estate there. There would be one scrawny little 60ish woman who would visit and re-visit cars along the business district strip, and make sure to get there THE MINUTE the meter expired. There are ALWAYS meters that don’t work, that swallow your quarters, and happen also to be the only vacant meters in the immediate area,leaving you with the choice of just taking your chances or driving around for ten minutes until you can find another meter reasonably close to where you have to go. This is in a town
which built a VAST public parking lot, using taxpayer dollars, in the middle of the business district, manned by automatic machines that require you to punch in your parking space number, feed the appropriate # of quarters, receive your little ticket, and place it in your windshield where the meter maid can see it. In best Big Gov tradition, your tax dollars are being used directly to punish, fine and MAKE YOU PAY AND PAY AGAIN. A self-enclosed circle of futility for the taxpayer, which is enough to make anyone crazy, and very very pissed off over time, because there is NOTHING behind it except extortion, and the funding of more and more
“projects” like this, which serve as successful examples of
the stranglehold they have citizens in.
We saved you from the kings tariffs. Robin Hood and his Merry Men. “
THIS is why the town is mad. They HATE it when we stop being sheep.
