    "Fanny Packs"....that's an awesome one HD! Those definately gotta go.

    If I was back in the 80's, I'd list "wearing a sweater with the arms draped over your shoulders and crossed around your neck" If you've never seen it, you haven't missed anything!

    1. speedos- never look good on anyone
    2. skimpy bikinis on kids- too young to be showing just a couple inches of covered flesh
    3. speeding around curves- there's a speed limit for a reason!
    4. police details- waste of money that just drives up costs of construction, worse when used by superiors to take money away from young officers who need it
    5. cell phones on public transportation- unless it's an emergency we don't need to hear your whole conversation especially when it can wait a minute
    6. raising tolls and transportation fares- when you can't or won't be held accountable to the public who put you in office you resort to this to raise quick cash...and it never works
    7. people whining about their lack of money before/after going on unnecessary shopping sprees for stuff they already own or are getting for people who don't need it
    8. tourists who don't ask for help when they really need it- they are going to badmouth a city because they can't navigate it because they got themselves lost and didn't ask for help
    9. public construction delays- only two people to blame almost all the time, the construction companies and the unions and both make money from them
    10. loud music blaring from cars especially ones that are parked- let's all lose our hearing because some idiot likes to stroke his ego and show off to his friends

    1) executive secrecy

    2) tax-free priviledges for all religious institutions

    3) deregulatory laws that shield financial institutions from oversight

    4) lobbyists

    5) incarceration for petty drug possession, prostitution

    6) the "clean coal" lie

    7) outsourcing to foreign nations and the subsequent elimination of U.S. jobs

    8) the legal right of the corporation as equal to that of a living person

    9) John Bolton and his entire memory from social consciousness

    10) Dick Cheney's life savings and all health benefits

    I take it certain "news"/media outlets are too easy so...


    10) One CSI and or Law & Order is plenty
    09) Subwoofers in cars
    08) Hybrids with ignorant world view bumper stickers
    07) Cell phone conversations within 20' of someone who doesn't want to hear your inane chatter.
    06) Dave Mathews
    05) Golf and auto racing on TV
    04) Stores having 21 registers but only 2 open
    03) People ignorant to all rules of the road. (Learn what Yield means for starters. And going too slow does not make you a safe driver.)
    02) Windows
    01) Top ten lists.

    Lots of good ones so far ...


    1: Fluoride

    2: Donations to political parties ... candidates only.

    3: Lobbyists

    3: PAC's

    4: S-corporations

    5: A ban on anyone ever again running for a national office who does not provide full disclosure of their life ... including school transcripts, birth certificates, legal record ... all of it. Full disclosure or ban from running. We should know everything about who we are voting for ... just like they know everything about us.

    Thats not bad, i'd just add:

    2. Harleys with no mufflers. OK how about i take the muffler off my car and park in front of your house. Are you still going to say "if its to loud your to old"

    3.Extremley large people wearing spandex in public.

    yeah ... okay ... so a ban on people using multiple body parts to talk out of.

    Only talking out of their mouth hole is allowed. Every other hole is banned from communication.
