even if the DMV got it right, and this IS a terrorist, exactly what makes their declaration on a car license plate a matter than would concern ANY one?
no one looks at license plates to be offended, for one thing, and I seriously doubt anyone, even a hebrew who wanted to find something to get outraged about, would get the notion that this plate was made to annoy them.
and is anyone going to call the DMV to complain that theses are on cars? No.
Can you believe that anyone not at DMV thinks this means Vagina? Not me
What crypto savant does the DMV have who can makes sense of this?
Welcome to motor vehicles kiddo... they're a lot of fun, and a lot of danger, and a lot of expense, but it all seems worth it when it fires up with only a twist of the key, and takes you anywhere you wanna be
"the police refused to allow the CCTV video to be released or used by the defense teams of those arrested. Total nonsense. Initially CTH graphed out hundreds of shell casings and it was clear the heavily armed police just opened fire into the crowd from three positions. Some victims were shot while they were cowered in corners."
The artwork, commissioned in 1984, was painted over sometime last month — during Women’s History Month. But... what was painted over isn't artwork you see above.
The mural is among a long list of L.A. artworks, including several other Olympic scenes, that have been whitewashed across the city in violation of federal and state laws.
Like other artists, Baca said she is considering legal action against the agency she thinks is responsible: the California Department of Transportation.
“A mural of that size is worth millions and millions of dollars,” said Brooke Oliver, Baca’s attorney. “It is reprehensible that Caltrans doesn’t recognize that it is a tremendously valuable and revered mural in a high-profile place in Los Angeles and doesn’t give it the respect that it deserves.”
But Caltrans insists it is not the culprit and says the agency is willing to work with Baca to restore the artwork.
At first Baca, who is a professor emeritus at UCLA and the founder of the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARK), blamed Caltrans for the whitewashing, saying she was considering legal action. Caltrans insisted that they had nothing to do with it.
"This is a 35-foot high mural," Baca told KPCC. "To put a coat of paint on that requires equipment and ladders and scaffolding...it's just not possible that Caltrans would not be aware of this kind of a production. It was a major undertaking and expensive."
She said that covering a mural of that scale would cost thousands of dollars.
But on Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) took full responsibility for the re-painting via a statement to KPCC/LAist, admitting that one of their abatement contractors had painted over it on February 26, because of what they describe as "extensive graffiti."
It had already been destroyed by graffiti taggers with their bullshit ugly bubble names of no artistic merit. How do I say that? I've posted hundreds of pieces of graffiti that is awesome, and artistic, and Banksy... that's how. I even love cave art and petroglyphs
Here's the timeline of this public art mural, smeared over by shit.
Whatever that garbage is, it ain't worth being on a wall in public sight.
it doesn't bother me one damn bit to have used up a pair of tires over 17 years instead of replaceing the front end suspension... it's way cheaper to replace tires. You might not know how little I've driven my 69 R/T in all these years, less than 10k miles for sure.
and here's a look at the 1970 JC Penny front shock, wasted upper ball joint, wasted sway bar bushings, wasted lower limit bumper... no one between the 1st owner and myself did shit to maintain this car. On the other hand, it's only had 128,000 miles when I bought it. So... not much was needed... though, the ball joints, idler arm, pitman arm, and shocks are all junk. I've been taking my time, and replaced 3 shocks so far, and none has ANY life at all. No ability to push out the plunger.
if you young people don't know Huggy Bear, well, about 50 years ago on tv, there was a show about a couple of cops, who knew a pimp, and his name was Huggy Bear, and he wore the most ridiculous pimptastic cloths. Here, take a look
Steve said. "About two hours later, we were called and someone said that our vehicle had been stolen from the lot."
California Highway Patrol says a woman had come into the dealership with her boyfriend, leaned into the Russells' Fusion without telling him and grabbed the identification tag and used the tag to claim to be the owner.
An employee reportedly handed the woman the keys without asking for identification. The CHP says the car was later recovered. The front tire was destroyed, the drivers side is damaged by a side swipe, and the interior is trashed.
The woman was not arrested but has been charged with grand theft auto
And that is why you pay your insurance company to handle problems like that
oh that spring thaw... come back in the winter with an excavator... dig around it then haul it out. Maybe find some mastadon and sabertooth bones while you're at it, cause that looks like some tarpit bullshit right there
the A-10 was special painted to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 107th Fighter Squadron at Selfridge Air National Guard Base (ANGB) featuring an unusual Cow Kill Mark.
the pilot of this aircraft said he was performing a Close Air Support (CAS) sortie in an enemy village at an undisclosed location. Nicking off bad guys and such. Afterwards, when the ground troops came in to secure and get the final kill count, they found a cow blown to pieces by 30mm.
