Apparently Ontario and presumably a Canadian driver license isn't valid in the state of Georgia. Is this how America operates now, shaking down tourists and visitors because no one wants to pay taxes down there? 

 

A lot of people I work with now talk about avoiding travel in the states - too unstable.

Yeah, because one incident equals how the whole country operates. Could you be any more dense?

 

Hopefully the idiot cop will get more training because he obviously didn't understand it the first time. That being said, many countries don't recognize licenses from other countries.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Foreign drivers licenses aren't recognized by just about any state, but we exempt Canada and Mexico (of course).  This cop didn't get the memo or failed geography.

I've yet to hear about an American getting locked up for driving in Canada, but perhaps it's time we built a wall

The federal government tends to overreact to even the mention of killing a federal official/officer, even if it's obviously in jest.
This is not really a recent, or a partisan, development here.  "Zero tolerance = zero thought/nuance."


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

Did you think his “jokes” were funny in any way? Politics aside, the funny flew right over my head.

Wasn't commenting on how funny the jokes were  - you made a silly statement, I responded in kind

A lot of people I work with now talk about avoiding travel in the states - too unstable. 

"Georgia recognizes unexpired driver’s licenses issued to and held by residents of other countries as long as the foreign license is unexpired. Generally, you may drive in Georgia for up to one year on an unexpired foreign license. Please note that in the case of a driver's license issued by the driver's licensing authority of a foreign country, a law officer may consult such person's passport or visa to verify the validity of such license, if available."
