You may be right, he doesn't squirm as much as he did a few months ago. (:-)
I'll take it under serious consideration. However let's not forget; just like a certain individual named IZ, if the level of BS from Jerry is reduced, the level of counter responses to his BS will be reduced greatly, not just by me, but others.
Your claims of being legal, for years and years = BS. Now go away jerry or do a google search; all the information is out there and need not be "specifically" repeated and rehashed. You know, $40K, etc. Do you have new and updated information to share with us??
CSFM: not required in 49 states and 140 countries and I had it as of
1999 at minimum
DOT: ACS has 1.3C issued at minimum. Usage of it was LEGALLY transferred (per the DOT's own regulations. To wit:
The DOT definition of a "person" and the ways persons can transfer rights.
TRA/NAR/CAR: USR and ACS had TRA certified motors from inception to 2001.
Those are my claims of being legal. What are yours?
You are exploiting the fact DOT like ATF oversteps its own bounds without hesitation or instant recourse. That exploitation is anti-rocketeer, anti-consumer, unethical, and possibly criminal.
You, sir are officialy a dick.
"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."

"Yeah, it's amazing that an organziation, let alone two would put up such an amount of cash to fight the BATFE only to roll over when they won."
[whether] "Mr. Irvine has complied with the instructions provided him, with no response from your office unless he has taken liberties with the truth, there are problems he has failed to disclose, resulting in a delay in the response from you or your office, and or both."
Probably because, within the DOT bureaucracy, once they have a record someone has filed an "enforcement complaint", it's far easier for the paper pushers to "close the case" with a recorded administrative sanction ("check here and enter case number") than it is to do anything else with it ("submit form 11357a in triplicate, countersigned by your supervisor and the Office Of Alternate Explanations") - and your job performance reviews are based on things like "average closure rates of enforcement complaints", so it makes you look really bad if you just leave them sit around "open" in the files. Whether or not the original complaint was really justified is probably the least of the issue as long as they can patch together a claim that backs up their version of the story. (The DOT "action on appeal" document from Jerry's case smells like what people say about Michael Moore movies and NASA powerpoint briefings: stuff pieced together out of context to push a preconceived point.)
Sorry Dave, I can't buy into that. The downside to the investigator for doning the wrong thing is to big for having wrong answers. Also, do you think Jerry is going to roll over & shut up about it if he didn't know they are right?
