After our idiot RHINO governor went in a panic over the Chinese Flu and shut
down our economy and ruined state revenues the morons who were elected
to represent the people have turned in to representatives of the trough feeders.

Slippery slope, that.  Not saying I haven't often felt the same, however...

Now there's some real Christian sentiment for you, "Kill'em all and let God sort 'em out". I probably wouldn't have written the translated version either, just depended on the cult vernacular to carry the intent. Precisely who is in this "kill'em all" list?

"I was speaking in the broadest of terms, of course, but more specifically was referring to certain religious/political ideologies.  A conservative Christian in the US and a conservative Christian in Oz are wonderfully similar, and just as there are a good many of us operating underrepresented in Los Angeles so I found many doing the same in Sydney.
I'm an unapologetic supporter of President 45, and if I had my Aussie citizenship already I'd be just as much a supporter of Prime Minister Morrison."


Last I checked, Ex-President 45 was under indictment for multiple crimes in office, still blathering on about stolen elections despite massive evidence to the contrary, had provided much cover for Putin/GRU & had defrauded his donors of about $60M. Not to mention getting about 500K extra folks planted this year. That's the guy I'd support, yeah boy. Is this Aussie citizenship thing something I can help with? I'd hate to think conservative christians were needing support and we had one willing to up stakes & leave. As far as "there are a good many of us operating underrepresented in Los Angeles", that doesn't sound like a good thing after the "Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius." quote.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caedite_eos._Novit_enim_Dominus_qui_sunt_eius.
"Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius." is a phrase reportedly spoken by the commander of the Albigensian Crusade, prior to the massacre at Béziers on 22 July 1209.[1] A direct translation of the Latin phrase is "Kill them. For the Lord knows those that are His own." Papal legate and Cistercian abbot Arnaud Amalric was the military commander of the Crusade in its initial phase and leader of this first major military action of the Crusade, the assault on Béziers, and was reported to have uttered the order by Caesarius of Heisterbach.
Less formal English translations have given rise to variants such as "Kill them all; let God sort them out." Some modern sources give the quotation as Neca eos omnes. Deus suos agnoscet, evidently a translation from English back into Latin, and so omitting a biblical reference to 2 Timothy 2:19 evident in the original.

In California, many free HOV freeway lanes are being converted to High Occupancy pay-as-you-go toll lanes. In order to use them you need a Flex Tag with a 3-position switch on it. How many people you have in your car determines how much you pay per mile while in this lane. If you are riding a motorcycle or in a car with 3 or more passengers, you will not be charged - provided you have a Flex Tag device on you and have the switch in position 3, otherwise you will be charged $$$ per mile, the cost of which can change by the minute depending upon the amount of traffic congestion in the other adjacent Freeway "free" lanes. Drivers and riders who do not have a Flex Tag, such as visitors from outside the area, will receive a bill in the mail sent to the address where their vehicle is registration based upon automated license plate camera readers installed all along the HOV lane. If they don't pay the bill their yearly vehicle registration will not be approved by the DMV.

As I see it this system is nothing but a money-grabbing scheme. The money collected is split between the private company that runs the fee collection system and the state's government Metropolitan Transportation Commission, that decides on where to build more toll lanes with taxpayer transportation funds and how to spend anything left over that is not being used to pay for their salaries.

I don't have to worry about being tracked via my cell phone as I keep it completely wrapped in aluminum foil and placed under my foil hat.  Safety first!   ;)

My son and I got a bill in the mail from using your HOV freeway lane out side San Francisco some four years ago. I think it was around $50 to $60. I never paid it and will never pay it. I also have never been back to your state and have no plans on ever coming back.

" how Wyoming might try taxing visitors traveling through the state with a mileage tax "
Ummm....cell phone data? Time, location & owner data all conveniently in one we-can't-live-without-it package? The same device that will hold your vaccine passport soon.... ;D ;D ;D  Welcome to the future, mates!

Another good reason for me to not own a cell phone. 8)

Some years back I got a similar bill from Denver, Colorado claiming that I and my painfully stock 1983 Suzuki Samurai were photographed on a weekday doing 90 on a speed-trapped Photo-Enforcement portion of their in-town freeway. I pointed out that I'd have to have left Bullhead City, Arizona after work, driven 1000 miles to Denver averaging maybe 90 MPH to get there, gotten the old girl up to terminal velocity thru their speed trap, then drove home at the same breakneck pace so as to make it to work the next day. They eventually agreed that the people that check the photos must have made a mistake. Either that or I owned the fastest Samurai on the West and had too much time on my hands.
