Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

It's called Policing for Profit. The local law enforcement gets to keep $$$ that it confiscates on the highway. That's why you're more likely to get pulled over going westbound through TN, because the drugs supposedly are smuggled in on the eastbound and they aren't interested in that.

Here is an actual investigative report detailing how the Feds and DEA work together to play the game of seeing who's traveling the interstate with money. They pick on minorities/foreigners that are using cash to buy businesses and large items like bulldozers.
