We recently reported on states “raising money” through gas taxes in order to fund lawmakers’ pet transportation projects. One of those states mentioned was Washington. In a recently proposed transportation package, higher gas taxes were put forward as well as a bike tax on those cyclists who don’t pay their fair share for the roads on which they ride.
In spite of the fact that only about 4% of the Seattle DOT’s budget comes from the gas tax and the fact that even bikers pay taxes that go to fund roads and highways, liberal lawmakers in Washington state still insist on bikers’ paying a bike tax to cover all the repairs in the roads caused by bicycles. Never mind the fact that a road’s wear-and-tear from a bicycle is infinitesimal compared to that of a typical car. . . . Read Complete Report
When I was kid, we often played cowboys and Indians or cops and robbers, where we were always shooting at each other with our toy cap guns or pointing fingers. When I was in high school, it was common for a number of students to have a gun rack in their trucks and one or two rifles in the gun rack. No one thought anything about it, nor do I ever recall any reports of stolen guns.

Dumb people come and go every year, and 2012 was no different. The past 12 months saw some epic stupidity, and not just from famous generals who had affairs with their biographers, men still dating the women who bit off their testicles, or the CEO who oversaw the death of the Twinkie. We have those folks, and 17 more.
We should have a “Ya’ll gotta be kidding!” Department.
The only place we can archive this is into the” Serendipisticikuty” Department.
Please note the red text in the notice below (added by your editor.) How much did this “warning of accidents” that haven’t happened cost the government to generate? Where are the Myth-Busters when you really need them?.
When will “We the Poople” regain the power to stop some of this nonsense?“ . . . EDITOR

On Wednesday morning, Terry V. Garner, a 70-year-old Oregon farmer, went to feed his animals. Several hours later, when he hadn’t returned, a family member went to look for him and found, on the ground of the hog enclosure, his dentures.
Further investigation of the enclosure by the family member revealed that the hogs, which each weighed about 700 pounds, had nearly completely eaten the farmer, although some body parts were strewn about the enclosure. . . . Read Complete Report

A man dressed in a military-style “Ghillie suit” who was attempting to provoke a Bigfoot sighting was struck by two vehicles and killed on U.S. 93 south of Kalispell Sunday night.
“He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting,” Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Jim Schneider said. “You can’t make it up. I haven’t seen or heard of anything like this before. Obviously, his suit made it difficult for people to see him.” . . . Read Complete Report
