The 11-99 “CHP” Foundation: An Embarrassment to the State of California – A License to Speed in 2017

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

This outfit got a lot of criticism, so the CHP made them take the letters “CHP” off of their infamous license plate holders and then they said they’d stop isuing them, but it appears as if this program is still going strong in 2017.

Read all about it here, just keep scrolling down.

Most of the these license plate holders I see these days are fake anyway. And even if you bought a “real” one on ebay, you were (or you are, IDK) supposed to display your 11-99 FOUNDATION MEMBERSHIP card or secret decoder ring or whatever whenever you get pulled over for speeding in your speedy luxury car. (You know, IDK how this system was supposed to work in the first place. How can you look at it and not think, “Corruption, corruption?)

Anyway, fake or real, what these license plate holders appear to be saying is, “I like to drive fast in California.” And if I can figure that out, CA’s peace officers can figure that out as well.

The Bridge Toll-Evading Mercedes Benz and BMW Owners of Frisco

Friday, September 30th, 2016

(I didn’t take most of these particular shots.)

Anywho, what do we see here – do we see the three parked cars of the occupants of one unit of housing all carousing about license plate-free on the Streets of San Francisco?

I think so.

img_1617-copy

Are these people pulling a Steve Jobs? Are they driving registered vehicles hither and yon with one or two DMV plates in the trunk, you know, waiting to get pulled over by the popo and then it will be, what, “Oh, I’ve been meaning to put those things on my car. The dealership says I need a special bracket, or something” or something like that?

img_1621-copy

I’ll tell you, the reason why the owners of Italian exoticars drive about California without proper California registration and insurance is because of the crushing “use taxes” they would have to pay otherwise. So your expensive, impractical weekend car might cost you $10K or $20K just for CA registration for the first year and then many thousands per year for years after that. So you end up seeing people using Oregon plates or Nevada plates or Montana plates or whatever.

But OTOH, the reason why owners of German luxocars don’t have the plates what DMV sent them mounted front and rear, just speculating here, are:

  1. Eurocars aren’t made with tall square-ish American license plates in mind, so you might need a special bracket to mount them, and even though dealers are obligated to provide them…
  2. After they break, due to their Mickey Mouse construction, drivers don’t want to replace them due to…
  3. Car owners thinking that ugly U.S.-style plates mar the good looks of their Euro rides, and…

4. Bridge Toll Evasion

(Hey, what if you have just the back license plate on your car – do the Golden Gate Bridge people take images of you car from the back as well? IDK.)

Anyway, the best example of this would be a German car owner who improperly asked for a handicapped placard and was improperly given one by a chiropractor and then uses that placard to park for free all day long at an SFMTA parking meter in Frisco, say someplace close to the Financh but not too close, maybe by that Safeway on Washington BUT ALSO doesn’t have license plates mounted in order to evade the $6.50 daily Golden Gate Bridge toll BUT ALSO has an insidery CHP 11-99 Foundation license plate holder so that the CHP officer who pulls you over already knows that you’ve personally given thousands of dollars to the families of CHP officers so s/he will go easy on you “this time” for speeding on the 101 without license plates BUT ALSO has been doing this for years and years.

You know, something like this:

After all, you’re special.

So very special

It wasn’t that I didn’t try
It’s not the kind of thing, that you buy
Written in my destiny
Life is but a dream
Covered by the sky
Stop saying that you’re calling time
Look at your life before you start on mine
I’m not the kind of person that you need
I’m sick of trying
I mean that it’s over

It was always special
It was like water down the drain
I’m intoxicated
Every time I hear your name
I try to remember
But nothing is the same
It was always special
it was like water down the drain

Patiently you wait for me
You’re so blind
I thought it couldn’t be
Then changed my mind
Drowning in the endless sea
Line all those lines
The traces of your memory
Don’t belong with mine

License Plate Holders from the Corrupt “CHP 11-99 Foundation” Will Never Die – Here’s the Proof

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

Supposedly, we weren’t supposed to be seeing these particular license plate holders because they’re an embarrassment for the CHP.

And yet they’re still all over the place, even on brand new cars:

The older versions have “CHP” on them and the newer ones don’t, but all of them seem wrong to me.

Like the dinosaurs of Isla Nublar, They Should All Be Destroyed.

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

These “Proud Whoppers” are still on sale in the 415 / 628?

Yes, down at 1200 Market Street at 8th and Larkin and Grove, across the street from the Main Public Library

Delicious!

Vox Populi: 

“I think this wrapper means we all have the same rights,” a young child explains.

“A burger has never made me cry before,” says a young woman.

To wit:

News nugget:

“Proceeds from the limited-time-only $4.29 sandwich will be donated to the Burger King McLamore Foundation, the chain’s charity arm, for scholarships for college-bound LGBT high school seniors graduating next spring.”

Bonus round: Rainbow Crowns!

In closing:

The Gay Whopper. It’s a thing. No but really though.”

Oh, and from Burger King’s FaceBook page, where people are writing in to say that they’ll never eat at BK again:

Know Your Betters: Area Man Becomes Supraman Simply by Piloting a Tesla Model S Electric Car

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

You just don’t know how special you are ’til you own and operate a Tesla Model S.

Why, you’re so special that, in some states, you didn’t even have to pay sales tax to get your new ride. And here in California, your wundercar can go all of its 200-something mile range on the freeway in the carpool / HOV lane even though you’re sitting in your car all by your lonesome!

Now check out Dude here on Masonic. He’s got his official CA HOV stickers on all four corners. Plus, he’s also got a license to jibber jabber on his handheld cell phone while driving. I mean, he must – just look at him: 

Click to expand

I didn’t check to see if he has special CHP 11-99 Foundation license plate holders (like this fellow Tesla God), but that would mean that Dude has a license to speed as well.

Oh but Dude, don’t speed too much else the maximum range on your $100,000 car will go down to 100-something miles and then you’ll have to get towed, like this:

(Funny story – in the mind of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the driver of this car drove it in circles specifically to make it run so low on juice that it wouldn’t go no mo. That wasn’t true but oh well. And this Model S wouldn’t even allow its needlessly-complicated doors to open for the tow-truck monkey, that child of a Lesser God, so it could be, you know, put into neutral so, you know, it could get towed. Oh, and here’s another funny one. How many kids should you have with 30-something Elon Musk before he trades you in for a newer, sexier model-type model? Five[!] Five kids, srsly. And then the former Mrs. Elon Musk is like, “At least she’s not a blonde.”)

Anywho, the question of the day is why you’d even want such a long, low, and wide big-on-the-outside-yet-small-on-the-inside vehicle such as a Model S? It’s like an electrified Porsche Panamera four-door, right? And compared to my full-sized. eight-passenger motherfucking Land Cruiser, the Model S is longer[!] and wider[!] (How can that be?) And I’ll tell you, my ride, which isn’t exactly known for high MPG, no not at all, has a real-life range of 400-something miles on the freeway.

Oh, what’s that, your Model S is shiny and it has a lot of chrome and it makes you feel special? Well, then carry on with your super important phone call, by all means.

You have become a Supraman.

Congrats.

As far back as Yossarian could recall, he explained to Clevinger with a patient smile, somebody was always hatching a plot to kill him. There were people who cared for him and people who didn’t, and those who hated him were out to get him. They hated him because he was Assyrian. But they couldn’t touch him, he told Clevinger, because he had a sound mind in a pure body and was as strong as an ox. They couldn’t touch him because he was Tarzan, Mandrake, Flash Gordon. He was Bill Shakespeare. He was Cain, Ulysses, the Flying Dutchman; he was Lot in Sodom, Deirdre of the Sorrows, Sweeney in the nightingales among trees. He was miracle ingredient Z-247. He was…
Crazy!” Clevinger interrupted, shrieking. “That’s what you are! Crazy!”
“…immense. I’m a real slam-bang, honest-to-goodness, three-fisted humdinger. I’m a bona fide Supraman.”
“Superman?” Clevinger cried. “Superman?”
Supraman,” Yossarian corrected.”

Yossarian is transcendent man. He is rising above the living dead all around him to find a way to live. He is basically alone in his quest. A real hero.”

I am, I am Supraman, and I can do anything.”
