Who is John Galt?
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
I voted no. I do not like the idea of the state extorting people into turning their cars into advertising billboards. Its bad enough they make you pay a tax on your car every year in the form of vehicle registrations. If Commiefornia wants to aliviate their debt then they can cut out a lot of state services and crack down on illegals seeing 4-5 billion of that is spent on illegals.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Okay wait... what service, exactly, could the state advertise to raise money?
Secondly, the only way I'd support advertising on one's vehicle is if the person who own the vehicle gets the money from it. This already happens.
Electronic license plates .....an excellent idea, if used to the benefit of the state and the driver(primarily)..
This particular idea of displaying advertisements is NOT GOOD!!
I'd like to see advertisements banned!
If California truly wishes to save money, they should rid themselves of those foolish people and their ideas; downsize their government, if possible, and reduce the pay of those who do nothing....executives, CEOs...or just get rid of them...
No, I am not a small government Liberatian...but I could be.....
"Ram the car in front of you and win a free ipod!"
astonishingly stupid idea
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
But this is a good idea, right now, I do not know if they are taxed at all.
Our federal government should "mainstream" them, grant all of them who are here citizenship and tax them....
Why is this not done?????
Who is against this?
LOL...just something else to be hacked and your identity stolen...yet tyranny is just around the corner.
Maybe corporations can start sponsoring individual motorists. I'd sell advertising space on my car for the right price!
This is an absolutely terrible idea. Not only is it ****ty to force someone to display advertising on their personal vehicle and not see any money from it, but I can nearly guarantee that within 24 hours of them coming out, there will be detailed instructions on the internet describing exactly how to hack them to display whatever it is you want them to say. Hell, I've only been thinking about it for 30 seconds and I've already come up with lots of fun ideas for them.
1. Show porn
2. Swear at people
3. Advertise for something I want to advertise for (a business, a website, whatever)
4. Show someone else's license plate number so if I'm photographed by a red light camera or speed camera I won't get the ticket.
And that's only assuming that I could hack my own. If there's some way to hack into them remotely, that's when it gets REALLY fun.
I almost wish they'd do it though, just for the hilarity that would surely ensue.
