Okay so is it safe to say half the population does? Still ends up being...445 million dollars every six years.

They seem to think it does mow itself, since all the roads are falling apart and in dire need of expansion.

Can you explain how it costs them 25 dollars to check on that with a car and only 8 dollars for a motorcycle?
You think that's expensive, wait till you get that ticket for not having a captains license.

Cars get registered is like every 8 years or some . They have satellite offices all over the state. Takes all of 5 minutes to get the sticker. Been there, done that. I got family in Bisbee. Now, you try again....
nah that's way too honest. There's no money in honesty.
Let's brainwash everyone into thinking us running their card for 33 bucks every six years and not verifying is somehow keeping them more safe on the roads. Because fear is the ultimate avenue when it comes to brainwashing the masses, we will use safety as an excuse

Actually, it wasnt. It's the only way for the state will know if you are taking care of your business. Kid of like you getting banned around here. They will suspend your license till you get your straight. You have a problem with licenses, including the one that would require you to fish, and own and operate a boat.

My is straight, so why does it cost them 25 bucks to make sure it's straight on a car and only 8 for a MC?

Why not just run it every six years and charge people who don't have their straight 75 dollars instead of making everyone pay?


There are no licensing, or insurance requirements on a boat if you are an adult with a valid DL, so I'm not sure where you are going with that.

I'm not even touching the fishing license thing, bro.

Nope, in AZ things pay for themselves. You're welcome

For Arizona taxpayers; if you are Single, Married Filing Separately or Head of Household and your Arizona Adjusted Gross Income (AAGI) is at least $5,500 or your Gross Income (GI) is at least $15,000 you must file. If you are Married Filing Jointly and your AAGI is at least $11,000 or your GI is at least $15,000 you must file. The filing requirements are explained at the beginning of the instructions on all Arizona income tax returns.

Because checking people's stuff costs money, hence the renewal fee. Move to another state, shelly. I'll setup the Go Fund me...

This is not a state VS state thing. As you can see, all states take advantage of their residents.
This is about state governments abusing their power, which you seem to not care about...you're part of the problem and part of the reason they get away with this .
get ready for the TX income tax, it's coming. But hey, what's a few bucks a year right?...that's how it starts bro. They don't just shove it right in, they start out nice and slow to let your stretch out before they really start plowing.

Only...when I do business with MH sponsors, I actually get something tangible, for a reasonable price, without dealing with some slow, lazy, rude behind the counter.

If this were a pay site, I highly doubt they would charge 33 dollars.

Better than just bending over and taking it, then screaming back for more, because it's what you want

If everyone in the entire state would like me and were disgruntled as , picketing in front of the DPS office, I'd bet they would make some changes...but a majority are brainwashed and think it's justified, like yourself.

Then we need to get rid of online renewals completely and require a full re-test for renewal.

That's the whole point I am trying to make here.
It's so blatantly obvious that they are taking my 33 dollars and doing absolutely no service for me in return that it is ridiculous.
