  1. What the hell is wrong with the next generation of humans? It seems this generation has been shown or taught that it’s quite alright to get behind the wheel of any deadly weapon of their choice while severly impaired have poor little kids, passengers and animals inside with these losers and drive, with total disregard of everyone’s life. The fact that their multiple felony DUI arrests goes bye bye after 10 years on their shady DMV record, it stays only on their criminal record FOREVER. Why? Why not stay on DMV’s record as well, don’t possible employers have a right to know about an possible employee’s driving record? Then maybe it might save lives warn everyone about their horrible decisions they make all the time. It should be allot more punishible if caught after the 10th FELONY DUI arrest, they are put away for a very long time. Whats even more scary is insurance companies now will let drivers who don’t have a valid drivers license or is suspended or revoked get insurance for their car in their name. Does this mean that if they have an accident does the insurance company pay the claim? Or do they just take the $50 a month payment or more just so they can get extra $$ from these idiots. When does ikt stop? NEVER!!!!!!!!
