my advice would be remove the log from your own eye before you try to remove the stick from someone elses eye.
I don't know of any jurisdiction in which driving more than 40 mph over the speed limit would be considered a small or minor violation. The woman isn't being condemned for jaywalking or having a few unpaid parking tickets. A car driven at that speed on a public road is a deadly weapon, and she was waving hers carelessly at every other driver in sight. I am pretty sure not "EVERYONE" does this.

Full disclosure: I once reached 95 mph on a deserted highway in my MG, but I was 21 years old, and wouldn't dream of doing such a thing today. (Honestly, I was pretty horrified with myself for doing it then.) That woman does not have the excuse of youth, although that of stupidity may still apply. I should have known better 30 years ago, and she should definitely know better now.

"Arrogant loudmouth?" Is that what you call anyone who speaks truth to power who disagrees with your Leftist ideology? Just brush them off, because they are just right-wing kooks ...right?

She didn't prosecute misdemeanors. She prosecuted real crimes.

Upstate New York is a beautiful area and there is very little traffic on those highways. We've driven the Southern Tier Expressway many times. Not sure what highway she was on, but just as an example. It is possible to go that fast and not be putting anyone else in danger.

No, that is what we call arrogant loudmouths. Jeanine certainly fits the definition. You have heard her speak, yes?

She's LOUD. My father always had to turn his hearing aids down when she came bellowing on the scene of Fox News.

This is true. If you have never driven on these roads in that part of upstate NY, it can be very light traffic for stretches of 25 miles or more between one small town and the next. And it's not unusual to go some distance without seeing another car depending on where you are and the time of day.

To put it in perspective for those who live in larger metropolitan areas where heavy traffic is the norm..... if you commute 30 miles to work, you can easily get there in 25 minutes.

Right, so we should all just drive 119 miles per hour then should we?

Used to do 52 miles in 30-45 minutes 5-6 days per week.

Move to Florida where it's stop and go unless you use 95 or the pike, it's 30-45 minutes to go 15 miles...

If you have the skill, if your vehicle can handle it, and the roads are conducive for it. Why not?

Residential areas, hell no.

Out up in the sticks of upstate NY where the only thing you need to worry about is a deer running out, why not?
