Hey do you like Midget Wrestling?



Do you like Midget Wrestling now.. I figured since you wanted to derail my topic with your raciest crap.. we might as well copy this guy and slide on our faces like this poor little fellow above. Heck they both hurt, and some may laugh.. but really what else would it accomplish?

Not everyone from Texas is the "wrong" color, if they stop you for Texas plates, that's not really about color, but about location, and sadly it's true that the Texas border with Mexico is used for a whole lot of drug running.

Ha! That was funny, both the video and your point.

Maybe lipbalm is more sensitive than I since I do not think it is racist, but it did rub me the wrong way that they target Texas residents. I've heard of this before, and when traveling through the area, I've learned not to give them an excuse, it's not that big of a stretch when you are on your way to Florida.

But as others say, since Texas is on the border, I can see their point as well. If you don't have anything to hide, then there's nothing to worry about. In the end, I have to side with the constitution which says I have a right to be protected from illegal searches.

Hey they pick on me to and tell me when you come home with those plates on your trk. you are going to get hooked up!!! but I can say it is not just tx. plates take ok. plates there are not a lot of them on the high way at 3am going 10mph. with tinted windows without a reason.
I can also say that color is the last thing on most officers mind, the only thing on their mind is felony!!
