welcome to the police state NWO. Americans are the new enemy in the eyes of the government.

Really, a police state. I would guess you have never seen a real police state. PCH is one of the most dangerous roads anywhere. If a preannounced checkpoint yields that many violations and limits drunk driving activity then I wholeheartedly support it.

But they didn't find any drunk drivers, oh never mind, maybe they will hook a communist next time. I feel much safer now, really, I do.
