Once again you can produce your "fact's."

If you can't back up your accusations then it is just slander, untruth, etc.

Give us the details the rule or law that is broken.

Thinking outside the box when dealing with rules and regulations means you are willing to bend them, to break them to suit a situation. That is not how the world works.

I understand what has been said in the articl, but I want your facts, your research since you give the appearance that you some insight. Once again you don't, you just sit back and do your armchair quarterback game. Really Cosa you need to look at yourself.

By the way the parking garage...have you counted the number of cars the actually do use it? You said that "no one would" your quote from a few months back. Yet there are a few cars there all the time. Hmmmm...

Still no facts! You can't take it can you? Finding out how little you really know.
Everytime you are challenged you never submit your facts, just opinion, which in your case is certainly not based on ANY facts.

You are out of touch lil fella no matter how smart you think you are!

here is a fact
