quote:EMISSIONS TESTING FEES A motorist may receive up to three free tests within a 365 day period. The fourth test, and for the ones thereafter, the motorist will be charged $18 for the test. Only one free passing test is permitted in a 365 day period.
So, really, its free the first three times in one year.
But really, $20?
I gotta pay $99 every year for registration. And like $60 every month for insurance.
And that's nothing compared to the standard operational costs, like gas and fluids and filters and brakes and tires.
Are you really complaining about something that amounts to a fraction of a percent of your total car costs? Despite the fact that it doesn't even really cost you anything to begin with...
I trust the advocates of small government over advocates of big government. I find rich people who advocate small government to be more accountable for their mistakes than rich people who advocate big government. Corruption of course, makes it all less cut and dried than I wish it was, but the general rule still applies IMO.
So you don't know if the scientists are lying or not, you just trust more the people who are saying that they are.
Then when I asked "How will the successes of all these increases in government be measured?" - in message 104, he said this in message 106;
quote:I see no increases in government.
Do you think that is ignorance, or do you think it's lying?
I don't know exactly what an "increase in government" is.
At face value, I'd assume it was adding another department or more employees but not just passing additional legislation.
It looks like you meant to say that passing another law is an increase in government and that jar does not think that is what an increase in government is.
