Wanna know why? Because I just took it right up the ass from the Department of Vehicle Licensing. I finally went and registered my car. I've been putting it off, but I thought I probably owed some karmic penance or something for the last couple of days of my life, which were a total waste in more ways than one, so off I went to the DoL. And let me tell you...I got a FREE car, FREE, and then guess how much they charged me to register it?
SEVEN HUNDRED MOTHERFUCKING DOLLARS. I swear to God. What the hell?? How is that even possible? It's a 1999 Mercury Sable! I am just in shock. Shock and awe. Awe that I am actually stuck in a state where state-sponsored ass-raping is totally legal apparently.
Also, and I think this is sort of the best part...I asked her "Well, how much will it cost from now on to register it? A lot less right?" She goes, "Oh yeah, it'll be about...uh...let's see...$200 a year."
TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS A YEAR? I want every single elected representative in this state to come TO MY HOUSE and explain to me where this money is going!! Because, I'll tell you what, I have yet to see one single damn thing being done ANYWHERE that is of any benefit to me, even in the most nominal sense. I mean, oh my God. Two hundred dollars a year? Is that some kind of fucking joke? I'll tell you right now, I am not laughing.
This is almost enough to cause me to start looking for jobs exclusively in other states. States where they don't sneak up on you and steal your sweet, sweet innocence when you least expect it.
