WE’VE BECOME A POLICE STATE…..zuki ties a yellow ribbon

Good Morning, and Malfeasance Aside:

I’m particularly troubled today (surprise there eh), at the unabashed harassment of those of us that drive within reason, and always with a purpose. As many of you are aware, Police traffic officers are primarily made up of young 23 to 27 year old men and now have admitted women to the club. This has created a senescent-gap between the “Baby Boomers” and the Sub-X generation. I’m old enough to be their fathers, and represent an authority figure such as a school teacher, or probably a coach they hated and not far removed from their lives. This has not only become a problem, but has now reached societal persecution on the highest level, there needs to be governmental protection. Let me give you an example:

I’m driving down the street enjoying the recently arrived Spring weather (Denver is always 6 weeks behind the rest of the country) listening to one of my favorite CD’s from Tony Orlando and Dawn; “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round’ the Old Oak Tree” and had the volume up, as it’s a real toe-tapper. Unbeknownst to me a young motorcycle cop was two car lengths behind and in the opposite lane, and couldn’t help but hear my musical selection. Within minutes he pulled me over. He said it was because of my excessive speed. I was going 29 in a 25 mph zone! I had no idea he was harboring such animosity.  What a supreme prick! The truth was finally revealed as to his motivation.  Just as he returned my license, he said, “sir, as a word to the wise, you may want to either turn your music down or select another CD, because you’re going to piss off every officer in ear-shot of your car”. He walked away grinning at me with a smirk reminiscent of the playground; “naa-nan-a-nan-ah”. I wanted to ground him for a month!

So please, those of you who can see the victimization and brutal prejudice permeating our great land, join with me in writing your Senator. It’s never too late to write a strongly worded letter detailing your outrage.

Revolution Now!!!!

    Somewhere out there tonight our fearless host is singing and knocking three times on the ceiling cause he wants — well who knows what he wants. The sad thing is that he lives on the top floor.

    fez. Hate is a strong word normally not associated with this our humble forum. Except for Phat Ass Patty we at the ‘Diatribe’ are dedicated to “Peace, Love, and Understanding”; even for Tammy. If you’ll peruse the archives you’ll discover just how gentile our collective efforts are. Sure we have disagreements from time to time but the ‘rules committee’ truly strives to keep things civil. Honestly!

      First of all, you ignorant cocksucker, I think you meant “genteel” and not “gentile” but you still might make a valid point. Given the fact that we don’t have anyone amongst us who is very smart or very rich, there is a good chance we are all gentiles.
      With regards to fez’ reference to TO, I guess I have a question. Was he formerly gay or formerly a football star?

      • Zuki

        Oh yeah..well like that’s your opinion man…

    I kicked the question around in accounts receivable about Tony Orlando & Dawn and discovered I was the only one that remembers him. Susan thought Tony Orlando was the gay former football star T.O. Personally I hate both of them.

    Zuki is just kidding you guys today. Tony Orlando and Dawn would be a huge upgrade compared to the music he really plays.

    I know from personal AND professional (once a drummer, ALWAYS a drummer!… Right, Bagged ONE?) experience that ALL (yes, EVERY LAST ONE!) of ZUKI’s musical choices should be permanently banned… in ALL juristictions irregardless of the age (or gender, for that matter) of witnessing law enforcement officer(s)!!!

    Censor MOI, censor MOI very much.
