I went to an auto parts store to get some camo paint for a little rifle painting project of mine. When I went to check out, the guy said per a new city of austin ordnance, a form has to be filled out. I said "you're shi!!ing me right??". No. So i take a look at this thing and its just a spreadsheet type printout with categories for Name, Address, DL# and color of paint...yes, Im serious. I laughed and asked what the nature of this BS is. He said...and I quote "there's one lady who's been assigned at APD to keep track of all spray paint sales in austin and combat tagging/graffiti." At this point my head was in my hand as I tried to contemplate the logic behind this. My points as we discussed this rediculous logic was this... 1) Williamson County is literally across the street...with no ordnance...get it? 2) Tax dollars are seriously wasted on a database of colors?? (rainbow is more like it) 3) They going to research (and maintain) a database when tagging is found and question/interrogate everyone who bought the color black/white/etc??? What about the eleventy billion cans of flourescant orange on construction sites? 4) They can come find John Doe who lives at 123 Anywhere St. with DL# F-YOU, who bought the color CLEARCOAT I'm going to try and find out who this "lady" is and wtf is up with this new deal because it is SERIOUSLY a waste of time, money, and brain cells! Oh how the liberal mind is warped!
