    Whenever i see a 53 with the wheels all the way back pure laziness comes to mind. 9/10 times i bet they hooked up to it at a place that makes you slide em back and were just too lazy to walk back and pull the pin

    Even if you occasionally look in your mirrors, you know they are all the way back. And......with a weigh station coming up? I can see having a brain fart about your tandems, but it should be apparent a couple of minutes into your trip. Like maybe the first right or left turn that you make?? Really no excuse.

    California voters passed a law that makes theft of $950 or less of anything a misdemeanor. In San Francisco and many other cities the cops won't arrest anyone for such theft. Just write them a ticket. If that. People are brazenly shoplifting stuff knowing that they won't be punished. Walgreens has closed 17 stores in San Francisco because of this and there are a ton of other retailers doing the same. Sure can't blame them

    All fake news. Under the new law misdemeanor theft carries a punishment of up to 6 months in jail. The problem was the old law made very small thefts a felony, which clogged up the courts with tiny crimes. The new law is much more in line with other states. For example, in Texas any theft under $2500 is a misdemeanor. And the 17 Walgreens closing are merely part of the 200 stores they're closing nationwide.

    That's only because I don't like stuff that isn't true. So I guess we will just have to agree to disagree.
