So This _Isn’t_ What Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom’s Mini-Motorcade Looks Like – But, Why the Lights, CHP?

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

[UPDATE: According to somebody who ought to know, this is not what a Lt. Gov. motorcade looks like these days. So, my bad.]

I don’t know, why are the lights on on these CHP prowlers?

To make the people inside feel good?

Looks that way.

I mean, this is the entire motorcade, so it’s not like cross-traffic is being stopped or anything.

I mean, don’t you want to be kind of low profile? Oh, I see, you feel that not enough people pay attention to
you, so everybody stare at me while I ride to the Starbucks?

OK fine:

IMO, our California Highway Patrol shouldn’t always do what the Lt. Gov VIPs want.


But here’s why it’s generally in the interest of the CHP to patronize electeds.

Oh well.

(Oh, and next time you roll through town, CHP, in addition to the flashing lights, you should honk your horns and activate your sirens, like every minute. Hurray!)

The Abandoned Police Dogs of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department – “Your Dope + My Dog = Priceless”

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

I don’t know, there were no deputies to be seen on the scene when these imprisoned pooches were yelping away on Grove Street the other day.

Oh well.

Maybe it’s what they call “tough love?”

OK fine.

Vandalism! The “Ecotage” Movement Now is Going After the Toyota Prius in NorCal?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

It seems the ecotage movement is now going after the Toyota Prius hybird in Northern California. No longer satisifed with attacking gasoline-powered SUV’s and pickups [yes Silverado pickups, sometimes Wiki is wrong], eco-griefers must now be turning their sights to the greenhouse-polluting Prius.

Why else would folks be stalking these popular hybrid cars? The people behind these attacks probably drive 100% electric cars like the Tesla Roadster.

Be on the lookout for vandals in all-electric cars or golf carts. They could be coming after your hybrid.



Sometimes, when a mob gets going after one thing, it turns and attacks another thing. Funny how that works.

“In America, they came first for the SUV’s, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an SUV owner;
And then they came for the pickups, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a pickup owner;
And then . . . they came for my Prius . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up.”
