call me a prude, but...

...if I can hear the bass on your car stereo from a block away, I don't want to pay for your hearing aids and other hearing loss-related accessories/meds/treatments when you go frelling deaf, okay? I celebrate your right to Play Very Loud when it comes to your own music, but when your music overrides the [vastly superior] audio in my own car, you've gone too far. Somewhere, a tear is rolling ponderously down an old Native American guy's cheek because your music is shitty and you're polluting the atmostphere with it. Just stop, already.


...if you say you can't afford health/car insurance yet choose to spend all your spare change for spinny tire rims and on having black velvet Jesus/Nubian Goddess/Calvin peeing on ____ airbrushed on your tailgate whilst other folk drive sensible, reliable vehicles and pay for their own health insurance, you bloody well don't deserve free healthcare.

If, on the other hand, you turn your ghetto-fabulous/barrio-mobile/apocalyptic white trash hoop-D into a screaming flaming deathtrap for yourself and yourself alone, well, I'm kind of okay with that.

Yes, losers, I'm hating on you.

Hehe...I grew up with some of those guys. No money, no hearing, with "upgrades" that cost more than the car did.

In the mid 80s while posted to a certain Naval Air Station in the Central Valley of California, the Missus and I took a spin to the nearby metropolis of Fresno. It's more than just raisins!
There was a city ordinance in place concerning super duper high powered stereo systems in vehicles. The young pup in the little japanese built pick up with topper got pulled while we were sitting next to him at a red light. The truck was actually shaking from the stereo! And the officer got out of his patrol car with ticket book in hand. I do not remember what the fine was but it was in the vicinity of 150 to 200 dollars!
And to friends of my sons who showed up with such noise. Shut it down or I will and it will only be worth scrap value.
