Current mood: chipper, cranky

I first heard about this instance from Frank DuBois with his post My Kind of Santa

Here’s the article — Santas Disable Enforcement Cameras in Tempe

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) A group of Santa impersonators are on the naughty list of Arizona law enforcement officials.

A YouTube video posted Monday shows four people dressed as Kris Kringle, white beards and red hats included, covering three speed and red light enforcement cameras in Tempe.

Two are covered with boxes – one decorated with Christmas wrap — and the third is blocked with what appears to be a red sheet.

The Jackson 5’s “Santa Claus is coming to town” plays during the more than two-minute video.

At the end is a message that reads:

“Ho Ho Ho! Death to the surveillance state! Free movement for all people!”

The group that posted the video also wrote “lumps of coal to all of those who make it their business to watch and control.”

I think about the all of the ØØØØØ taxed and spent by cities all over America for this kind of stupidity. Then I remember that seven European cities DID AWAY with traffic signs and lights. What does that say about America, where officials are eager to put up MORE lights, cameras and regulatory signs?

What about all of the kids who have to go without Christmas and Hannukah gifts so that their parents could pay the taxes to fund this insanity? Who amongst the self-appointed Ruling Class cares about them?
