Enjoying this banter as its not mere academics to me.
What sorta of questions did you ask the DMV?

The one which booted her was, "what evidence does the DMV have that my
car is a vehicle of the type subject to registration?"
Note I had at that time won 3 cases on the driver's license,
registration and proof of insurance.
I remember having a witness testify to something but what it was I
cannot remember. Maybe it was whether or not I chrged him a fee for
giving him a ride. Something like that.
After the hearing was over, the man portraying a hearing officer sat
for another hour as I diagrammed how the law worked between him and me
on a blackboard. It was a gas. Never heard from them again.

the superior law of the state's own constitution over mere statutes,
you can go home and forget about it, right? Isn't life too short to go
around wondering what the difference is between "motor vehicle" and
"automobile" ? Who cares about it? Do you? I did until I discovered
how to make the bogey man disappear...you have to stop giving
impersonators credence. You only have to deal with officers as per

it - it's fascinating. Back then people still read, so they understood
the plain language of the code, which mad eit abundantly clear that
only commercial traffic was being regulated. So, you might at least
use the normal "street definition" as a starting place, and then let
your adversary articulate, using his code that he says he obeys, how
you err in doing so.
I see a difference in the terms right on their face.
I don't have time to take anyone through the code anymore now that I
don't have to. Life is too short. Especially because few if any have
commented upon the lack of oaths here and there. Here a more
foundational defense is being ignored. I find it fascinating, don't

from Day One. If the shoes don't fit, why wear them?
I loved it when I first saw the old code sections that recognized the
concept of non-commercial uses. There were only two licenses then, the
"operator's" and the "chauffuer's" licenses, and those were all the
"code" EVER regulated, as you could read it if you were inclined to do
so. But then a stroke of brilliance caused them to blend the two
licenses, without changing who or what was being regulated, and they
named this combination license, "the drivers license" (because it
combined the two commercial drivers classes). And then they set out to
make teenagers want them! Hahahaha! What an easy to obtain status
symbol, eh?! Trapped like monkeys with their fists in coconuts.

"interplanetary magnetocraft" anywhere in there either! Some people
think there must be a statute that says when it rains on you, you get
wet. I personally don't think the politicians in the capitol have had
time to thoroughly legislate to permit all the possible actions that
man might conceive of as the universe expands.
If I was paid enough in advance I'd take the few hours or days
necessary to find the word "automobile" in the old code for you. It'd
be at least a couple of hundred bux in silver, and I'd bet you could do
it yourself with a few days or less of looking. Isn't it great how
this stuff works? Should we really be spending all our time looking
this stuff up just to be able to live as a free American? I don't
think so, so I like to cut to the chase ASAP, and the oath thingie is
hard for these people, officious-acting neighbors of mine, to get over,
especially when I remind them of the two additional concepts of the
crime of impersonation of an officer and the ages-old "citizens
arrest". I'm wondering if it's easy for impersonators to pull the wool
over the eyes of the folks out in the hinterlands, away from this land

If you're stuck in the code, you'd best ask, "how'd I get here?" What
is the name of the officious-acting neighbor whose impersonation was so
successful that it forced you there, OR did you enter voluntarily?
I entered voluntarily in ignorance and had to fight my way out over
three years. I didn't have to change them - I had to change my own

them, they made it a condition of my win that the DMV would notify me
if there ever were anything done to diminish my rights as they existed
then and presumably still exist now since I never received any such
notification. But as I recall, they had quit using "operator" even
then, because the word only covered half of the regulated pair of
classes of persons. They found higher revenue enhancement occurred
when they permitted people to apply for licenses they really didn't
need for their own private purposes, but which were important status
symbols in each other's eyes. Today people ask for your driver's
license when you go to buy food and do many other things that have
nothing to do with driving. Does anyone think to present a fishing
Some people still know that they have the right to fish too, and they
do not get fishing licenses either.

This is the case for everyone who has a "certificate of title" because
