As far as what all of this means to all of us, I’ll leave that up to each one’s Higher discernment. I received this link from Neil Keenan, which is unusual for him to include me on his list, so clearly he feels this is important.

The jig is up. One of the state’s oldest scams for generating revenue is issuing “traffic tickets” for non-crimes like “speeding” under the guise doing so keeps the road safer (of course, this is a total lie), yet for a multitude of reasons ticket revenue is plummeting across America. While Hillary Clinton called for speed limits across the U.S. to be lowered to 55 mph a few years back, a number which coincidentally maximizes revenue, states have gone the other way, raising average speed limits to around 70, and in states like Texas the limit is as high as 85. Did all this new “speeding” translate to more dangerous roads? No, in fact it’s the opposite, the roads are safer than ever, and just as important, you’re less likely to be extorted by road pirates.
