Peter Young's Stupid Tweet

Analysis of Peter Young's stupid tweet.
Peter Young expresses no shortage of stupid tweets, but his latest one pisses me off and I want to write a public note about it. He writes:

"Cop hacking: Let off w/ warning 8 of 8 times since presenting USAA insurance (for military families only, by way of non-blood relative)."


This tweet indicates that he spends a lot of his driving time breaking the law by speeding or disobeying traffic laws. Automobile accidents kill people all the time. As someone who has been victim in an automobile accident and who has known victims in automobile accidents, I find it disgusting that someone would get pulled over eight times for disobeying traffic laws. There is nothing cool or progressive about endangering other drivers on the road.

The latter part of Young's tweet includes "non-blood relative" to denote a person in his family. This is a signal that Young places great emphasis on eugenics when it comes to stupidity and behavior. He finds it important to indicate that a stupid military person is not sharing DNA with him. As someone who has a lot of blood-relatives and ancestors in the military, I find this offensive. I am nothing like my blood-relatives in the military and I hope that nobody judges me for sharing DNA with these people. Mr. Young obviously does have a eugenicist-thinking mind when it comes to blood-relatives. That's very offensive. You shouldn't judge someone by who they share DNA with!!!

DNA not Required

" indicates that he spends a lot of his driving time breaking the law by speeding or disobeying traffic laws. "
-- This is a wild opinion and was not what I got from reading his tweet -

" I find it disgusting that someone would get pulled over eight times for disobeying traffic laws "
-- This is again your opinion on why he is getting "pulled over" - many times a person or vehicle is pulled over for not committing any crime or any infraction. His tweet does not mention any fact as to why it is happening. You assume he is disobeying traffic laws.

" includes "non-blood relative" to denote a person in his family. This is a signal that Young places great emphasis on eugenics when it comes to stupidity and behavior. "
- Again you assume what he is talking about, I didn't get the "signal" you inferred. I got the fact that you used the word "stupid" as if He had used it . He mentions nothing about being stupid. To get the insurance that he has you have to be in the military or have family that is. I took his tweet to mean that IF you had the card for insurance [USAA] the police would not give you a ticket if you were pulled over. Its interesting to note that when he shows the "special insurance card" he is gets the privilege to "go with just a warning".

-- There is nothing about DNA, blood, blood relatives or eugenics in his tweet, all those words are your own and they are inferred and are not factual. The only fact I read were that if you have the USAA card you wont get a ticket IF you are pulled over. There is nothing about him breaking the law, speeding or disobeying any traffic laws

This is overreaching and a bit asburb
