    They always do things in a big way. Pisses some people off but being a next door neighbor, it puts a smile on my face.

    Texas has adopted a new speed limit going from 80 to 85 miles per hour. Yee haw. So, driving at 100 will only get me a ticket for going 15mph over the speed limit. As an added benefit, driving this fast will decrease gas mileage and just piss of environmentalists and tree huggers that much more. Increased usage of fossil fuels will create more jobs also. Leadfoot can not wait to take a trip to Texas.

    I'm probably not the only person who has a slight issue with this way of thinking.

    I lived in San Antonio Texas for 7 years. They didn't need a law about it then---they just drove that fast. :D

    And I do love Texas.

    Nope. But I'm sure that people hate being stuck behind an underpowered "smart" car whose back window is so covered with Obama stickers that you can't see them tailgating you when you drive like a myopic geriatric.

    Pretty huge difference between moping around and blazing around at ridiculously unsafe speeds because you're "only breaking the law by 15 miles per hour." How sad and pathetic is it that making a political point comes down to your perceived right to put people just trying to get around in danger.

    At least he is in control of himself and not on whatever drug is available like you.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    You seriously can't be the way you are and not be on drugs, can you?
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
