The county has come up with a NEW burn ban which only effects people living in rural areas. The ban includes NO trash burning, no grilling or BBQ'ing, No welding or any other outdoor burning of any kind. Now I wonder what they plan to do to alleviate the problem of trash buildup down here? (Probably nothing) Folks in the city are exempt from part of this and can still use their BBQ pits and so on. So happens that my burn barrel is full of trash that needs to be burned and there is also trash in here that needs to be added to that, but I'd have to burn what's in there before I could do that.
Now I suppose the trash can be kept in bags outside for the wind to blow it away and believe me that will happen. Or perhaps everyone can sack up their trash and leave it along the highway to be collected. Maybe even dump it on the courthouse lawn to make sure it gets the attention it deserves. At the very least make sure the county commissioners get the message in the next election.
A new law was passed making it where a person can not register their motorcycle until they take a ridding course. For here I think the nearest place to take one of those courses is Lubbock Texas which is about 370 miles from here. They are also costly so there is no way I will go through this latest BS. I've been riding motorcycles since I was 13 years old and now get hit with this BS! I'd like to know the real reason for this BS. Oil company Pressure or maybe just STUPIDITY on the part of the people that hatched the idiotic law? The fact is now that gas is so high a lot of people would be buying motorcycles because they can't afford to drive a gas hog anymore. Perhaps Nick has the right idea about buying a donkey to pull a cart. Maybe everyone can do that, make a trip to Austin and visit the state capital after feeding their donkey a laxative. Give the people that came up with the BS plenty of DS to ponder!
