Arnold Schwarzenegger: failing upward to the Senate or, heaven forbid, the Presidency
An afternoon in Malibu, California ...

Freedom from government tyranny sometimes requires an act of civil disobedience ...

In government-related matters, sunshine is the best disinfectant and laughter is often the best antidote …

“VIDEO: Santas Disable Enforcement Cameras in Tempe: Watch as some Santas gift wrap three speed and red light cameras.”

“A group of Santa impersonators are on the naughty list of Arizona law enforcement officials.”

“A YouTube video posted Monday shows four people dressed as Kris Kringle, white beards and red hats included, covering three speed and red light enforcement cameras in Tempe.
Two are covered with boxes - one decorated with Christmas wrap - and the third is blocked with what appears to be a red sheet.
The Jackson 5's ‘Santa Claus is coming to town'' plays during the more than two-minute video.
At the end is a message that reads:
’Ho Ho Ho! Death to the surveillance state! Free movement for all people!’'

What can YOU do?

Remember, in the great majority of cases, automated red light enforcement cameras are more about municipal revenue generation than they are safety. Especially when the municipality contracts with third-parties to provide the equipment, installation and shares the revenue.

For more on the egregious nature of red light cameras, visit for more information.

And as a Christmas gift, remember that approximately 80% of all tickets given by automated traffic enforcement devices are for “rolling right turns.” Make a full stop before turning right and scrooge your municipality out of their ill-gotten gains.
