The war on drugs is a joke. Like when the cops raided a veterans house over a call about pot plants in his basement. He took out his 9mm, and started shooting. He killed one of them and wounded 6 of them. Then he hung himself in jail for "unknown" reasons. That got my blood boiling.

Slow your roll there beavis. NY is a cesspol of desperation and disaster all on its own in classification.

I reckon that if we wanted to, we could write a check from our SAVINGS / Checking account and purchase the entire state if we wanted to, but we don't.

it is states like NY and California and other weak, broke states which kowtow to the federal governments programs and rules so they can get some more funding. this action emboldens and empowers the morons in the fed system to have more control than they should, and the stupidity trickles down.

Most the NYS's financial woes come from dolling out money to NYC.

Now , as to the "beavis" complement, does than mean you are Butthead ?

It's suprising those rent a cops are still alive. The residents must have been feeling merciful that day.

We had a problem in my home town for years with local police conducting illeagel traffic stops, illeagle searches, and worst of all, you couldnt even udder the phrase " Is there a reason why you pulled me over officer" without them puttin the boots to ya. It was well known in Northwest MO to not go to my town because of the crooked cops. Some of them have been arrested in KC for major drug charges, others have had their names discovered in local drug dealers black books but nothing ever happened to them.They messed up one night about a year ago and beat the snot outta some big time attorney from another state that was just passin through. Needless to say he made some waves and the longtime chief finally lost his job over it. When the town rejoiced at his demise, the newly appointed chief wrote a snarky article in the local paper the basically said, "If you didnt like the way he handled busisness, Youll love the way I'm gonna handle busisness." So now our polce force is nonexistant. No patrols, no welfare checks, no radar, no nothing. They wont even show up at a call unless someone has been injured. Great right? Nope. Now the Meth addicts have taken over, robberies and theft are at an all time high and people drive 100 mph through town constantly. Property values have taken a nose dive and I dont want my kids growing up here. Always to much or not enough. Canvasback said it. CONTROL.

Yup. Exactly.

The turbidity standards are all out of whack. And nobody in EPA seems willing to adjust them. Probably because the whackiness helps to eliminate pretty much all the little "mom and pop" mining operations.

Only the big companies can afford to comply with the myriad of regs.

Being a bit senior to you Scabtrapper, I remember when the Angels on the west coast weren't the most desirable segment of society. Sort of like portions of Vancouver B.C today.

There's always worse actors though. As we saw in Chicken a couple weeks ago.

Remember, they let Barb pass through Spearfish each year.

Good point about Barb...

I was in a bar in Sturgis this year during the rally where there were only H#$@s Angels and no other bikers....made me kinda uneasy for the first couple of beers. Not as uncomfortable as it would to be panning on a creek and then overrun by a bunch of environmental swat team members though!

All I can think about now is the Blues Brothers movie

What do you expect? If you don't have the proper number of PFDs on board, you might deserve to die! Or at least expect to spend the weekend in jail if its the National Park Service rangers who are counting!

"The state troopers are a good bunch of guys but Alaska has always had a rocky relationship with the feds ever since we made the bad decision in 1959 to become a state."

If Alaska hadn't become a state, we'd still be a territory -- a mere colony -- of the United States. Do you really think the US treats its colonies better than its states?

Colony or state, the jackboot routine would be the same.

I have no reason not to believe Jim Wilde. Lots of reasons not to believe the Federal government.

Those were a couple of well written articles from the Alaska Dispatch.
