But as Kramer followed de Blasio, she saw his cars go 40 to 45 mph in a 30 mph zone, and as they passed a 45 mph sign, Kramer clocked the caravan going much faster – up to 60 mph.

Under his new plan, the mayor’s goal is to reduce traffic speeds from 30 to 25 in the city and stop cabbies from speeding, too.

“The likelihood of a fatal crash and this statistic is very powerful. The likelihood of a fatal crash drops significantly for speeds below 30 mph. If we get those speeds down, it will be the difference between losing a life and saving a life,” he said.

Kramer reported if a police officer had been following the cars, and had pulled the mayor’s caravan over for his violations and issued tickets, the lead driver would have had his license suspended:

• Driving or rolling through a stop sign: 3 points;
• Driving or rolling through a stop sign a second time: 3 points;
• Going 10 mph over the 30 mph speed limit: 3 points;
• Going 15 mph over the 45 mph speed limit: 4 points.

The grand total for all four violations, had they been handed out, is 13. Your license can be suspended if you rack up just 11 points.

And that was not all Kramer found. Cars were seen changing lanes without signaling, and when the mayor got back to City Hall, he stayed in his car in the parking lot. The chase car was unable to enter the City Hall Plaza, and ended up blocking the intersection and the crosswalk – forcing pedestrians to walk around it.

Come on, those laws are ment to defraud the little people !

And we know it.
But just when do we gather together and take back our nation from these frauds I'd love to know, because I'm a busy man and I might have a colonoscopy scheduled for that day, or a pedicure, or a shoe shine, or something rather unimportant to attend to, you know, because.......

Seriously, I'm so used to this type of elitist garbage that it doesn't even surprise me anymore, in fact I expect it.
And I know I'm not the only man who's reached this exasperation point either, but I am only one man and any civil disobedience I do alone will likely have the equivalent impact of a flea bite on an elephants ass.

And, on that note, another observation, just exactly what impact does even a massive demonstration peaceably have these days, when it's not even shown to the public on their propaganda channels? Take for instance the march the conservatives had about the IRS persecutions and targetings, even the vets march; neither recieved even so much as a blip of lame stream news coverage, though tens of thousands showed up to protest. What use is a protest that accomplishes absolutely nothing ?

Is it time to convert old shops into holding areas so we can arrest, hold and try these individuals for their crimes? Holding grand jurys in every town and berg untill we've cleaned the house of these vermin? If we were to do so, could we expect an ever increasing martial response to our upholding the laws of this country? Would the Federal Governement use our law abiding prosecutions of their criminal friends as reason to declare martial law outright?

How do we prepare, to defend, to pursue justice when all we do is monitored, recorded and abused 24/7 by the very ones who are the criminals, the law breakers, the terrorists, the insurgents ?

Does anyone else think that such an endevour, though justified and righteous, would be met with the oppressive, vile and wickedness of a quick response and beaten into submission by force of arms that included deadly force, kidnapping, false imprisonment and tortoure ? What would stop a Government already proven to practice these offenses from doing so again?

Would not it be foolishness to assume that they would just roll over and say " ok, you got us, you win, we surrender, please put us in jail for life ."

These are all hard questions I know it, but each must be assessed and answered.

In our founders day, we enjoyed several advantages over our oppressor that we do not enjoy today. These were strategic knowledge of the battlefield whereas the enemy had no familiarity, and, logistics and reinforcements were decidedly advantageous to the revolutionaries. Make no mistake, we are at serious disadvantage on nearly every category that must be assessed in martial strategy, to think otherwise shows a disingenuous and dangerous conception of the battlefield as it exists, and a view not based upon reality.

That's not to say miracles can't happen, for I for one know that they do and shall continue too; but herein a second revolution would necessarily require many such for a full restoration of the Republic for which we pine.

Just an opinion of an old war horse, and not necessarily factual or true.
