CCRs dwT #34: Oinking for Bucks

Dylan sez…
(a short and timely jotting for CCR twits Tweeters)


dwT #34:   Thank you, again, state Rep. Harper-Brown for your innate ability to kowtow to PACs, special interest groups and other campaign fund providers as you pretend to represent Irving’s interest in Austin.  Your latest legislative escapade of authoring HB #625 (probably the only bill ever authored by you that was approved) will now fine drivers $200 for not having a front license plate.

Backstory clue for the information impaired:   Effective today, your local law enforcement can cite vehicle owners who do not have a front (or rear) license plate $200.  And state Rep. Harper Brown is responsible for the law being changed to enforce this fine for no front license plates.  Of course, driving around Irving in her shiny black Mercedes-Benz that has a front license plate, she is not attuned to car enthusiast who value the style and pristine lines of a vehicles front end that would be marred by a tacky license plate dangling from the front.  (BTW -- has anyone checked to see who the registered owner of Harper-Brown’s current Benz might be? Remember the previous underhandedness she had with a Benz that was ‘provide’ to her for her use by one of her hubby’s clients?  The client also happened to have contracts with the state approved by our elected representatives.  The aroma of this slick and malodorous political trickery and ethics crunching via Harper-Brown’s sleight of hand still permeates north Irving.  But then, that’s just how Harper-Brown rolls in her Benz!)

Sadly, there are many states that do not require a front license plate.  But then, these states may not have self-serving politicos who feed from the sty-trough of those providing piggish campaign donations.  Sometimes, money not only talks, but it can also oink as well.   

Full Disclosure Notice:   The CCRs fuel injected staff car does not currently have a front license plate.  This condition will soon be corrected (tomorrow)...with protest and profanities.

A note from counsel: Some “Tweets” from Dylan Westie have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles….Mark Holbrook
