they passed a law here where they scan your DL, finger prints, and get all kinds of info on the person selling any kind of recyclables. one can't even sell their soda cans without all this and more. *shakes head*

I live near Detroit, Michigan and copper theft there is epidemic. They are cutting live wires down and stealing air conditioning compressors. It is totally out of control.....like everything else in the Motor City......We're so bad even our mayor is a criminal.

but we are winning the war on terror and the economy is just peachy
Our educational system is the best in the world and we are on target to solve the energy problem that the dwindling supply of oil is creating. Murders in Detroit and Baltimore are so negligible that anyone can take a stroll in any ghetto for some lemonade and ice tea.
