The state and county are wasting a lot of money scaring people. Welcome to the new money making police state.

One of 5 days out of the year where slow minded men can excercise power they think they have to make up for their massive failures in high school, to meet a quota set by our communist government in an attempt to collect money on fines and fund their own pockets via campaign contributions from private prisons. A little word of advice. We have the right to bare arms, use it, and shoot these fuckers when they violate your rights. The media will say you wetre a bad person, but if there is an afterlife... you will be hanging with the founding fathers of this country. In other news.... do not drive drunk.

Great way to welcome visiters to our city for a holiday, "drive hammered get nailed!" How about saying something that will make people feel welcome like, "have a great holiday, please drive safe" instead we've got our ego maniac sheriff and his "dui task force" regulating the holiday mood, awesome.....
