Retired judge's portrait not enough to satisfy state voter ID law

A judge unable to get a free ID? Seriously...Smells more like political activism.

Coin meters bring change in charitable donations

Give it away and they will come. Get ready for more of 'em. Had a couple of runins with the poor and destitute in this town. One had a gas can and was asking for money @ 23rd and Louisiana. Told him to meet me at the station and I'd fill his can. Of course, he couldn't walk a block for his "gas" and didn't want a ride there, just wanted the money. Another one was by king buffet / perkins. Him and his 10-11 year old son. He was asking for money. Buddy of mine told him they have food kitchens here in town if they were hungry. He told us "Yeah, but we're vegetarians." Just shrugged my shoulders and walked away. Seriously? Apparently your parents never told you beggars can't be choosers, another failed societal lesson. Oh well, so be it. Needless to say, govt based charity get's no charity from me.

Sound off: Is it legal to mow your grass clippings into the street?

Every law on the books has been broken, and most of them A LOT of times. Not much of a deterrent eh? Our whole system as you put it is dependent on people that do the right thing, not just obey the law. And by creating stupid nit picky laws, you take people that would normally do the right thing, and make them not want to do the right thing. Remember, we got tired of England and their nit picky laws and kicked them out a while ago. Most of our bill of rights came out of that.

This whole mentality that making a law somehow keeps something from happening is what drives me up the wall. :-)

I'm sure it's not the most important of liberties that bartstop is loosing that is bothersome, to me it's the idea that us poor people are so inept that we have to have government take care of us by instituting the most ridiculous of laws. All this enlightenment and we're more unempowered than ever!

And then adding insult to injury is the disgusting lowest common denominator response to call the cops when you see these ridiculous laws being broken. 100 years ago we'd have been eaten by the ants if we were that incapable of taking care of ourselves as apparently we are in the eyes of people that want these kind of laws.

Not only that, but what's next? New law: If you neighbor waves at you, you have to wave back? Turn in violators by calling the cops?

Either it's a troll posting these sound off stories or the LJWorld is taking questions from some serious cry babies. This one is about as obvious as "If I break the law, am I really breaking the law?" I can't believe space, or bytes in this case, in supposedly a "NEWS"paper, is being wasted on carp like this. Nice job LJWorld. Seriously, this is as good as it gets? What's the next most obvious thing you can post as a sound off question?

Again, most people with sidewalks have grass as well that is perfect for walking on.

I seem to be getting you going...Seems I'm doing something. But obviously I digress. I'm not saying you should never reach out for assistance from the police, but it is being abused far too often when most times asking a neighbor nicely does the job. Additionally, I've never let a car infringing on a sidewalk keep me from using the sidewalk. You can always walk around it, sometimes you might even walk on the grass. Make it an obstacle course and go up and knock on the persons door if nothing else.
