great theory

but I've never been hired by a poor person, so lets get rid of ppl with money so none of us have jobs.
Look around today, all that happened was the ppl w/ money went down a little and tightened their spending like a drum. Wait till they don't have money.

I don't want that world...


earn 50k + a year for hrmm a decade, then outlooks change

write them a check for his speed in regards to the standard $ x / each kph over
hire a lawyer and tell the Swiss to beat it

laws are there only for those who obey them... this report said he was a repeat offender. 35 mph over the limit. sounds like some rich dude who could give a ratz ass about the speeding tickets he got. well, he'd better care about it now that the fine is in the 6 digit range. they shoulda crushed his car too...

I wanna know what the car was
maybe they got the bright idea to base the fine on its value
or they coulda pulled 290k out of thin air.

and didn't Leno or Letterman or one of those late nite foolio's lose their license for pulling autobahn driving on the regular?

yeah... i bet you it was the batmobile.. i lost the original one some years back and it was sold on the black market.

dunno about their speed freaking, but Letterman did admit to having sex, i don't think Leno has sex at all... that's prolly why he has so many cars.

so we go by that court's reasoning... if I got a speeding ticket, they'd have to pay me for it.
