This one in particular, "7. Norman Gurley was arrested in Lorain County, Ohio, because a compartment in his car could have been used to transport drugs." should have everyone on here wary of Ohio. If you make these aero mods to your car it could be considered as a "trap car" because it has been modified...stupid.

I actually got pulled over in a small town in Texas driving my Infiniti Q45 w a body kit. Was told that drug runners use the extra compartments to run drugs. The the officer have a full guided tour.... He knew more about econmodder than he wanted to by the time he was thru. Actually apologized for taking my time. Two local sherif cars had pulled up around me during the process

The answer to any question by an officer is "no". If you have to ask, then you don't have the authority.

It is quite sad that the US is going the way of Western Europe. I'm not saying that everything in Western Europe is bad. What is bad is that W. Europe seems to be following E. Europe.

I suppose that the reason Russia and the US are not able to get along is partially because they are too similar.

Not surprising, that is what happens when a nation decides it doesn't need God. Once again, religion and politics go together for me.

This kind of stuff is the reason I think all laws should have an expiration date. 10 years sounds about right.

Technically in Virginia a Pruis is illegal as coasting in neutral was made illegal 80 years ago.

While you're at it,
Remember: the DHS wants you to build a two week stockpile of food to prepare for disasters.
And
Remember: the DHS wants you to report people like antigovernment extremists who stockpile food.
