  1. “Your phone records indicate you sent text messages at the same time traffic camera’s indicate your vehicle was moving.”

    “Pay $200 now or submit proof of legal compliance work through our bureaucracy for the next two years in an attempt to prove your innocence.”

    First cost in proving innocence? Probably have to pay a certifying official $60 to $100 to verify you have text to voice capability.

  2. The interview with this Bob Newhart look-alike is educational. I particularly like his response to the “I haven’t done anything wrong so I don’t have anything to fear” whinge.

    As Ayn Rand said in Atlas Shrugged “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt.”

  4. they lose once and for all their sense of probity.

    Hell, I didn’t even realize I ever had a sense of probity. What is that, exactly, and where do they generally keep it?

  6. no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation,

    I have a fantasy in which every bogus warrant issued results in an investigation to determine whether or not the person supplying the information the warrant was based upon had committed perjury.

  7. And that’s what the screaming, irrational leftist crowd is for. To impose that lack of response, that “humiliation” without even necessarily having the full power of government to do so.

    Part of what we call the “culture war” that we don’t really fight because what do you do with a shrieking lunatic?

  8. “He’s making a list
    And checking it twice;
    Gonna find out Who’s naughty and nice

    He sees you when you’re sleeping
    He knows when you’re awake
    He knows if you’ve been bad or good
    So be good for goodness sake”

    The conclusion is inevitable: Big Brother is Santa Claus!

  9. Try ordering a pizza by phone. (This is an old one.) “We see you’re ordering a large pizza. According to our records, your cholesterol is a bit high. We’ll just do you a favor and cancel the order. Have a nice day.”
