And the red light camera executives, we put them to death, yes?

Yes?

It's not a bribe if you just take the envelope and throw away the cash.

Wait, it is still technically a bribe if you accept an envelope as a bribe. You're just a cheap whore. Never mind.

I wish I knew if he was a Democrat/Republican so I could either feel validated in my political affiliation or point out the fact that lots of Republicans/Democrats do the same thing.

Exactly, just because you got duped doesn't mean you didn't have the intent of accepting a bribe.

The 'minor' you thought you were going to meet wasn't actually there when you showed up?

Surely that means you're innocent of any crime. Right?

I think these things are especially cruel for the poor.  The poor are more likely to share cars (no, I don't have any other evidence other than anecdotal, having been poor and having poor friends).  But the owner of the car is assumed to be the driver and has to go to court (which usually means taking unpaid leave and probably a filing fee or two) and narc out his friend who borrowed the car in order to avoid paying the ticket.

That's pretty much what the Feds are doing.  Towns up and down the Chicago boarder are getting raided.  Anyone with half a brain knew these red light cameras were a scam and politicians were making money off of them.  How they haven't been banned outright, I don't know.  Oh wait, I do.  Chicago won't let it happen.

Yup. It's like someone buying a bag of baby powder when they thought they were paying for cocaine. The intent is there.

It's more the creative part of speech they're using the word as.  Shook is a real live word.  It's also a good song, I'll add it to my list of songs that Led Zeppelin blatantly stole.

I'd stick with the official registration myself but I'm sure the wiki is just as legally binding.

It's not about what party they are in.
Any unethical person can join a political party or run for them.
It's about what other people do.
If the party rushes to defend or exonerate a clearly guilty person, lies for them, and so on - or if another party rushes to make false accusations about an innocent person - based on their party affiliation, then that's where you can decide if that party has a problem.
Right now, one party consistently chooses this order of importance: self > party > (fetuses?) > (guns?) > other white people (male/straight)?) > America/other human beings

Zep wound up giving blues artists credit, if you looked up their songs today you'd see that and wouldn't need a list. ;)

That's because they can't retaliate in those instances.
But to be fair, good cops are more than relieved to be free (in some places) to stop that flavor of evil and/or report it.
