  1. Not a bad haul for eight hours work

  2. Not one DUI? I don't know how they get away with this stuff. Pull me over, stick your face in my car, and ask me questions... without cause. It just seems so unAmerican.

    1. Yes, it is so much more American to wait until a drunk driver kills a family and then stick a face in their car to see if they were drinking.

    2. I have had friends killed because of drunk drivers. I appreciate the authorities efforts to keep the roadways safe for me and my family, I can't see why you'd object to that unless you drink and drive.
