California Cops Are Pulling People Over For The Best Reason Ever

California Cops Are Pulling People Over For The Best Reason Ever

Commented May 21, 2014 at 01:26:04 in Comedy

“Here's my problem with the ad: It's not the "abuse of power" (I mean seriously, there are FAR worse abuses of police power that can occur like for example, an illegal arrest or the police shooting someone without reason or the police breaking into your home without a warrant without the necessary requirements given by case law). It's the fact that the ad shows you NO CONTEXT- were the people in the car breaking the law in some way that could necessitate the police pulling them over and the police then being kind enough to let them off with a warning and ice cream. For anything (from ads like this to literature etc) context is INCREDIBLY important.”

“The question I want to have answered is: How in the world is she even able to RUN in the first place?”

“Her father's a senator of the state, so I'm guessing some rules were "bent". I wonder how many other rules they'll "bend" to actually get her elected?”

“Dadums probably passed a law last year: a candidate need only be alive.”

“Why don't you ask that nice Mr. Google in your keyboard and get back to us with the answer?

Perhaps, she'll be 18 by the time she's inaugurated or perhaps West Virginia allows under-18s in their House of Delegates.”

“In the United States, a person must be at least 35 to be President or Vice President, 30 to be a Senator, or 25 to be a Representative, as specified in the U.S. Constitution.

Most states in the U.S. also have age requirements for the offices of Governor, State Senator, and State Representative. Some states have a minimum age requirement to hold any elected office (usually 21 or 18). Most states will not allow ballot access to people who do not meet the age requirement of the office they are running for. Saira will turn 18 on July 11, prior to the general election.”

“She can;t be registered to vote. Long-time Democratic Representative can't be on the ballot because a non-registered voter collected signatures.”

“My guess is that she'll be 18 before the November elections.”

“I want an atheist to give an invocation. THAT's going to make people very unhappy”

“That happened in a legislature session out west. The invocation rotated amongst the members. One of the members was an atheist and he gave an invocation that was very nice. However several of the christian members of the legislature lost it and wanted to pass a rule that any invocation had to mention either god or christ.”

“The only problem is that by trying to say that people who aren't religious are somehow more rational than those who are religious, or that religious people somehow don't believe in facts, is also derogatory and degrading. I have met MANY religious people of various religious faiths (and denominations of said faiths) that are both rational AND believe in basic fact (like for example, that the Earth is Round)”

docallen001 on May 6, 2014 at 06:01:16

“There are a heck of a lot US Christians that require that the Bible be taken literally leading to a 6000 year old earth. The numbers are growing all of the time. The problem is that a large percentage of population does not believe in science and that is a bad development.”

“If I told you that I had a $10 billion bill in my pocket .... would you "believe" me?
Or would you make me show it to you?

What if I told you that ABSOLUTELY I have such a bill in my pocket ....because you can't prove that I don't have one?”

Bazzzaa J on May 6, 2014 at 00:00:23

“I disagree. To believe in something that has been debunked is to live in a fantasy world. The basic facts a believer will accept are merely an attempt to live in modern society.
Ask these people how old the planet is and if they agree it is billions of years they just contradicted established religion. You cannot rationalize a fact with a fantasy. They are simply living part of their lives in the real world and part in denial.
It is not derogatory, if just simply is. The natural world does not need anyone to believe in it to exist because it exists. Yet if people stopped believing in god then it would cease to exist. There is nothing rational about believing in something that does not exist.”

dandaman62 on May 5, 2014 at 23:51:45

“My father is a chemist, and very Catholic, so I know some people can compartmentalize things, but I'll be blunt, and no offense intended, but religion is not rational. I'm not talking spirituality mind you, I'm talking man being the center and meaning of all crap.”

“Actually no; the original article that claimed that vaccines claim autism (which is what a lot of anti-vaccine people are worried about) was a man by the name of Andrew Wakefield who wrote an article in The Lancet (a medical journal) in the UK in 1998. It was later found to be fabricated, he lost his medical license, and the article was fully retracted in 2010”

grandmablue on Mar 17, 2014 at 15:39:13

“Thanks for pointing that out. Apparently there's still a majority of the public who believes that long-debunked claim. My son is head of autism research at a major university hospital. I'd heard those claims and thought they sounded believable, but he assured me long ago that there's not one smidgen of evidence of any relationship between vaccinations and autism, and that the "research" claiming a link had been thoroughly debunked.”

“There is another thing- there are people in our society who are immunocompromised (their immune systems don't work properly) including the very young, those fighting things like cancer, and the elderly. They shouldn't have to fear going out and getting a dangerous disease which can add stress to their, most likely, already stressed lives”

“I don't know where you guys get the idea that Hispanics think of themselves as victims. 9 times out if 10 (expand that as you will), Hispanics tend to work harder at jobs that white people don't want. Indeed, white caucasian's have become the victims (in every way, including welfare). Perhaps we need to have classes that point to that fact.”
