Re: Report expired paper tags

Propped plates tells me the car is insured and inspected. Wouldn't want someone hitting my car that isn't insured. About 1 in 7 drivers in the Houston area is uninsured, so there is more than just your neighbor to worry about. It’s unfortunate, but that’s what uninsured motorist insurance is for.

A stage was set up for Trump and Pence to address “overflow” crowd outside, but this was cancelled due to poor attendance. I don't know about the crowd ins...

Re: Calling the Police on Burglars “Comes from a Place of Privilege”

While I agree that the Minneapolis city council is naive, the video clip linked in the original post was cut short to misleadingly take the comment out of context. In the full statement, she explained (I’m paraphrasing) that while many people have the “privilege” of expecting that the police will a...

Re: Central Park Karen

The “threatening” man is on the Board of Directors of the NYC Audubon Society. Signs posted that dogs must be on a leash. She falsely claimed to the 911 operator that he was threatening her life.

The judge or judges responsible for releasing him without restrictions are guilty of criminal negligence, possibly even manslaughter. They should also be sued in civil court.

Re: The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States
