    Funny toon. Ya we got a few of these punks in our town with low-riders and music(usually rap) so loud there is no way these thugs could hear an ambulance. Sad thing is we probably paid for that stereo through welfare checks.

    I can’t see how The Florida Supreme Court ruled that this was legal. Your rights end when they infringe on the rights of others. I have a right to not hear your music, do I not?

    People is plural, person singular. Corporation is many, individual is one.
    The constitution protects the one fom the tyranny of the many, while protecting the assembling of the ones to effect change.

    I like the idea. If I was not so cheap I would get a stero system and when one ogf these idots pulled up to me I would play polka music

    Give the man a break, he was a child and it was what his mother told him.

    I remember a case where a 7-11 store owner was getting fed up with high school kids hanging out in his parking lot and playing loud hip-hop music at full blast—it was driving away his paying customers. So he started playing classical music through the loud speaker system and the kids wouldn’t come near the place.

    Seafood, steak, and bakery cakes are also food items and are therefore eligible items. [You were shacking up with a woman and not supporting her financially? Says a lot.]

    1) He said he lived with her. He didn’t say they were romantically involved. Adults of different genders do have the ability to live as roommates without shacking up.
    2)The salary restrictions and the amount given in food stamps makes it difficult to be able to purchase high dollar items such as steak and seafood.

    You do make a point about the junk food. While I support the food stamp program, I firmly believe that candy, bakery items, chips, and pop should be removed from the eligibility list. The food stamps recipient will be better of both financially and medically.

    Funny how those ganging up on Clark Kent themselves don’t know what the $%^& they’re talking about.

    My neighbors listen to Iron Maiden all the time. Whether they want to or not.

    1. Audiologists and “Dogs for the Deaf”, are seeing a boom in business, that will only get better in the future.

    2. Maybe with the stereo, some of these folks won’t hear the round coming that “turns them off”?

    3. Clark said “years ago a woman was living with him.” I recall that years ago, food stamps DID put more limits on what people could buy, and steak in some areas may well indeed have not been allowed, because of cost limits, which, just being able to buy other foods in an amount to survive, might have precluded buying steak.

    I also knew of people who shared housing because they were broke and on food stamps, that included mixed gender households who were NOT “shacked up”. I couldn’t GET food stamps, because even though my income was low enough while in college after the military, my car was paid off, so I didn’t qualify. A guy ahead of me, with a new Dodge he was making payments on, who had HIGHER income than I, DID qualify, because the car wasn’t an “asset”, but debt.

    Little Green Men: Music, loud or not, is a free speech right. A nativity on PUBLIC property denotes a bias (establishment) of religion.How’s about we allow menorahs or Satanic symbols or Buddha statues at the courthouse? Yeah, right! Look at the crap about the mosque NEAR not AT Ground Zero, IN A PRIVATE BUILDING! Hypocrites abound.

    A friend of mine with a belligerent neighbour tried something clever.

    He set up a microphone, amplifier, and speakers aimed at his neighbour. Whenever loud music was played, it got sent straight back with a 0.2 second delay.

    Mr. Ima!! I am so pleased to see you provide supporting info instead of a simple comment! As one who was on food stamps during the Carter years for about 8 months, it looks like little changed.
    In 1980, I bought lobster and steak with food stamps for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary and the brand new baby we brought home from the hospital that same day. While that sounds extravagant, I was doing yard work, simple carpenter work, and windows door to door and had some cash. Btw, despite the criticisms of conservative & liberal friends/family who said I was being stupid, I reported every dollar I made every month- I met plenty of folks who didn’t. However, if a wedding anniversary and new baby doesn’t warrant a special dinner, what does?
    I was lucky. I could work and get government handouts during the oil embargo and job cuts of those years and had it better than most. Many on food stamps can’t work and those stamps are truly, LIFE saving. Yes there is a small amount of fraud, but as I’ve noted in past posts, one dedicated regulator backed with well defined laws/rules/regs and strict enforcement can save the government millions over time, sometimes in short times.
    Good post, Mr. Ima. I look forward to seeing your future contributions.
    Respectfully,
    & Have a great Christmas and New Years,
    C.

    Tigger, agree with both your posts. I only want that good chest-thumping, body-rattling feeling at a rockin’ concert! Unfortunately, every place I have lived where there is a noise ordinance, police give it short shrift.
