I don't even know where to begin with this outlandish post. You are beginning to sound, oh can I say this nicely, over the top? A guy gets a ticket for expired tags and children out of a car seat and you make the leap to McCarthyism? Jeez.

A better comparison would have been the McCarthy era communist hunts.

It is our duty to report people we believe look out of place.

We have NO business questioning authority- we should do what the police officer says, and disregard that they are civil servants. Everyone knows that all police are good, and therefore need not be policed themselves.

Most importantly, we need to remember that questioning authority is un-American. Just do what GovCo tell you to, and everything will be alright!

As soon as folks stop making posts about the same thing (trying to place blame elsewhere for their ticket), we'll move right along. Until then, it's not in my nature to sit idly by and watch an argument run off course (albeit, the course I want it to run on!). Welcome to internet forums 'Tag! Prime examples of the 1st Amendment--and equally as frustrating as a hippy protester (no offense to the hippies out there) mouthing their bass ackwards ideas on the steps of the Capitol. But they're great when you want to spread your own word!

Hey "Steve" I resemble that remark! I was a 60's and 70's hippie. Of course, I did server 366 days as an engineer TDY to an Infantry Battalion in Vietnam.
I just figured you had better things to do than trying to get Hoagie to see the light. Heh, heh, we each get our enjoyment and relaxation in different ways, right?
